    We enjoyed a great holiday in wonderful countryside.  Relaxing and enjoyable cycling, although a few more hills than we anticipated.  Very pleasantly surprised by the good standard of the well chosen hotels which were reflective of the local area.  Helpful staff during booking and good overall organisation so a hassle-free holiday, expect for a few blips in the directions.  English speaking backup in France provided immediate response when needed during our trip (plus all the essential tools provided for the inevitable puncture).  Overall a great trip, hope to be back for more.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The freedom, reliance on dodgy? notes, the amazing and varied scenary, some unexpected tough cycling, no complaints, oh, and the wine tasting!What did you think of your group leader?There was no group leader, well except me as I had the notes, only got hopelessly lost once, so not bad for a beginner, any vacancies??Do you have any advice for potential travellers?This is a trip that at face value attempts to keep everyone happy: cycling, wine tasting, culture, food, sight seeing, these are the ones I can think of!!  it will pay to do some research to ensure you get exactly what you want from the trip; there is so much going on. The notes are vital for going with the flow, do your homework and prepare to flex, and this trip can be as specialist or generalist as you want!Is there anything else you would like to add?If you are new to cycling, this is great, but you must be disciplined, otherwise go for a group trip!  This is a varied area, helps if you like French food, and speak more than O level French.

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
