Thank so much for all you did for us. This bike tour was great and as you know we love Spain. Have a great remainder of the summer.
I would suggest that you have a Professional guide at the Dali Museum. You can charge extra for it if needed. You need a proper 2 hours min to tour that museum. When measuring bikes, you should get the exact frame size. We loved the trip and will look to use DIGnGO again. Thank you for all your efforts.
Merci beaucoup. Thank you for asking your trip leaders to drop us at the airport and thank you for being so concerned about my stupid back.
Great experience, thinking about what we do next year.
We enjoyed cycling with Doug and Laurent. Compare to other trips we’ve done with you in the past, we had to ride with a little more traffic, especially the last day. However, we loved day 4. Overall another outstanding experience.
