    4.5 - Excellent

    My first experience cycling in France, and staying on a barge. Cabin were small but had everything I needed, and comfortable for a week. Cycling trips were great, lovely scenery, some good food tastings too! I found the drivers in France really courteous to cyclists, which made cycling here a real pleasure. Our guide was really helpful, and took us to places we would never have found by ourselves. Really enjoyable and relaxing!
