We loved our trip with both of your trip leaders, Sam and JP. Very professional and enjoyable to work with. We got the help we needed for us to have the best experience possible. I would recommend them both to any future clients.
Our cycling trip through the Loire was great — it exceeded my expectations on every level — the food, the wine, the accommodations, the wine tasting, the chateau visits. We defintely would use Digngo for another trip. Thank you!
This bicycling tour was very well planned, executed according to plans. I would advise future participants that the bikes have very narrow seats and I highly recommend either a seat cover or a padded bike short.
Our cycling trip was amazing. We had great tour leaders and we had a great time.
I want you to know how a wonderful second bicycle trip we had. We are sure that you are headed for great success. Thank you again!!!!
