This Bordeaux trip was a wonderful adventure, with beautiful accommodations and wonderful meals. We enjoyed the attractions, well chosen and a wonderful addition to the cycling. We had very professional leaders (Sarah and Flynn), lovely people always catering to our needs. We ate far too well, after all the cycling I couldn’t believe I came home heavier than I left.
We really got the impression you would do anything to make our bicycle tour great. Exceptionally helpful, courteous, friendly and kind, we also liked our trip leaders very much.
I think I said it all in my note but again: the knowledge, intelligence, professionalism, congeniality, adaptability of our guides made this the best trip we have ever taken. Your choices of hotels, restaurants and sites surpassed anything we could have imagined.
I received this trip for a 60th birthday present. I told my husband that I loved that trip as much as our our honeymoon. This cycling vacation is the BEST trip I have EVER taken.
We are still talking about it and plan to do another one next spring with only DIGnGO! You are the BEST!
Thank you for a great bike tour. This cycling vacation through Bordeaux certainly exceeded all our expectations. We will recommend DIGnGO to other Canadians.
