We had incredible tour guides, always helpful and at-the-ready, but totally unobtrusive. We comfortably enjoyed our trip. We could not have asked for more accommodating trip leaders whose company we would more enjoy.

We just finished a 5 day bike tour of Provence. We enjoyed our two knowledgeable and engaging tour guides… very experienced in cycling and great to be with. We ended up with just the 6 of us on this trip, so we got some sort of a private experience. We loved the outstanding and well researched bike routes, and the great variety in physical challenge and mostly low traffic. We also loved the extraordinary accommodations and restaurants. We’re looking forward to doing it again. Picnic, wine tastings, olive oil tastings…all extraordinary!

We had very attentive and fun trip leaders. I loved the trip. I would have liked hybrid bikes with bar ends or horns on the ends of the handlebars to allow another option and to avoid wrist fatigue. Normally, I ride a road bike at home. We also loved the fantastic food. Thank you for a great bike trip.

We had fantastic trip leaders. We learned a lot about the region and I even learned a little bit of French. This bike tour was a great success because of them. We became good friends with them. On our next trip, if possible, we would like to have them as guides again. Thank you for a great cycling trip!
