Our family cycling tour was lovely. Great routes, excellent Garmins, terrific bikes and outstanding tour guides. We were so fortunate to have Laurent and Franck as our guides.
We would have loved to be able to include our guides in our dinner plans on the evenings. We offered to include them a few nights. I would encourage you to give your guides the flexibility to accept invitations from guests to join them at dinner.
We had excellent guides. We were fortunate enough to have them all to ourselves. We all enjoyed chatting with them. We liked their suggestions and ideas when we had rain on the last day. We loved the bikes and we had to buy the same one to our younger son when we returned home. We enjoyed the snacks although I would have preferred dark Swiss chocolate lol.
We had some challenges with GPS in the van at times but we took it all in stride. We loved the accommodations through out the trip. We likely wouldn’t have found these places on our own.
Only suggestion, we aren’t big seafood eaters and would have liked some informal surveying of menus for us. However, we loved the recommendation of our trip leaders for our free night.
Thank you for those terrific photos. Thank you even more for providing our family with an amazing experience in Normandy. If “word-of-mouth” advertising is valuable, then DIGnGO has been receiving some valuable advertising in the Charlotte, North Carolina, USA marketplace over the last week. We just had a fabulous time, and cannot thank you and your trip leaders enough. We hope that we are fortunate enough to have another trip with DIGnGO in the future.
Thank you for a wonderful cycling vacation. We had a great time. We can’t wait to do another tour.
