Overview

Bordeaux is a region that boasts nearly 6,000 vineyards producing some of the best wines in the world. More than 8 million people visit this region each year. They come for the wine, they come for the food, and they come to tour across its remarkable bike trails. The greatest biker in the world, Lance Armstrong, once said “If you’re in France and you don’t ride a bike… you’re missing out.”

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.

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!
