A few things. Our Piedmont cycling vacation was our second DIGnGO trip and we really liked it. We had great trip leaders. We told them to be slightly more attentive during rides for a couple in our group. Right away, we saw a big improvement. We liked the food, all very good. We enjoyed the nice blend of Michelin and informal restaurants. We even had fresh truffle with dinner!

One of the great weeks of our lives. We can only say great things about India and Martin. We liked their knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, and work ethic. We were sad to say goodbye. I can’t wait to schedule another week with them & DIGnGO.

We had an awesome trip leader. We wish we could have spent more time with JP. We’re sure we would have liked to spend more time with him. We got some great tips on how to make it up the hills.

This trip was perfect. A little hot but you can’t control that. We are already looking into another bike trip for next summer.

Use us as a reference anytime.
