    1.5 - Rather poor

    It was a stunning area to explore and good quality bikes were provided. Our guide Andre was fantastic. Unfortunately the experience on the barge was not the same great experience. Overall this was not a good value based on what was provided compared to other tours in europe, in my opinion. It was very basic accommodation and the food and service was very disappointing. Did not feel very welcomed aboard the boat and sort of felt like an unwanted guest that was an imposition. It made me question rather I would do a boat and bike tour again. I would rather pay less for the tour and then pay for my lunch and dinner from local patiseries and restaurants and get quality and fresh food. Also it would have been nice to have been able to do a proper visit and tasting at a few of the vineyards. We were biking thru incredible vineyards without stopping to appreciate and learn/taste the local wines. The cost to have wine on board was also a bit steep, especially given the accommodation. I had done a bike tour thru the Loire valley with G Adventures staying in hotels and it was a far better overall trip. Based on my experience, would not recommend this tour. I hate to write a negative review, but I wish I had this feedback before I booked as I may not have booked. It is a shame as it has the potential to be a really great tour, but there would need to be a lot of improvements made.
    UTracks commented on this review
    Dear Anonymous, Thanks for submitting your review. We would love to have the opportunity to address these comments with you directly. Please do contact your local UTracks office. The Burgundy region is undoubtedly known for its world class wines however there are many other aspects of this trip which are also of significant appeal such as the cycling through rolling vistas, historical towns such as Beaune and the experience of living aboard a canal barge in France for a week. During the trip we offer two included wine tasting opportunities, usually at the end of the day rather than during the days cycling. Other opportunities in your free time (eg Beaune) are also possible. The barge is simple but comfortable as stated in our literature and this barge is known for its friendly crew and variety of meals. This has been a popular program for over 10 years now. Other trips offered through UTracks use a range of barge categories to allow people to choose what suits their taste and budget.

    I had a very good time in France. The trip was well organized and the scenery beautiful, we travelled through some wonderfull villages and tasted some great wines. I would certainly consider arranging another trip through UTracks and will suggest using you guys to any friends or colleagues that I can.

    I would definitely recommend TourRadar. Their site was easy to use and their response was immediate. They had me booked and sorted in no time. I was so surprised that things could happen that quickly.
