Reading these descriptions about Electric mountain bike trips. I don’t even care what the bike is: motor or not. Just that the tours looks like an incredible experience. Maybe they offer a range of motors, just a bit for fatigue or that your power all day? Regardless, there are currently two e-MTB tours available to North Americans (meaning, English speaking), with more coming soon.
What I expect couples would do during these tours is one of them rides the electric bike and the other pedal power only. They both have fun and the non-cyclist keeps up.
This is also a growing niche for touring. In Spain, “trekking” bikes are ridden from winery to winery with signage along the way and lanes or paths. If an operator take tourists up into the moments to enjoy more local food that’s even better.
