We loved our third trip with DIGnGO and we continue to be very pleased with all aspects of your company. We like the accommodations, the restaurant, and the cycling routes. We were especially impressed with your backup plan to replace a trip leader on day 1. We enjoyed our biking with both Simon and Sam.

We are happy with everything, and we are always recommending your company highly to our friends. We anticipate future trips with you.

We had a great trip and you were a big part of the reason. We would enjoy doing another trip, if possible, next July in Normandy.

We had a wonderful time.

We’re looking forward to our next trip.
