    We traveled with 2 kids and 1 adolescent, everything was great! It´s a perfect trip to kids. Short distances, amazing castles, small cities, great accommodation!

    Great cycle tour. Far enough each day to provide some exercise and change of scenery but allowed for lazy starts in the morning. Well-chosen routes away from traffic and varied scenery along the way. Wonderful hotels and great food. Loved being on our own, setting our own pace, but with all the logistics taken care of.

    Hotel accommodation was great. Not all hotels have lifts, so carrying luggage up two levels can be arduous. Luggage was ferried to hotels each night - no problems. Would have preferred not having a set menu in some places. Bikes were not always under cover, so got wet when it rained. Bike paths not always well marked, so some wrong turns. Garmin did not work properly so had to rely on maps. Scenery magnificent. Accompanied by birdsong nearly all the way. Chateaux beautiful. Finding Blois hotel was tricky. It is a big city. No need to panic about food enroute - lots of places to eat. Not all hotels we stayed at had open restaurants at night. Made it tricky when you had to find somewhere to eat and it was raining and you were tired after the long ride. Public holidays means lots of places closed. Was no guide so don't understand that field

    Thanks for the review Elizabeth. Correct there is no guide on this trip. It is self-guided but apart from that field we appreciate the ratings on all the other areas!

    The initial planning, communication, advance material, self guide, route, bikes, and arrangements were excellent, thanks. The orientation was weak as the rep was not aware of the route nor very acquainted with the gps (which proved to be confusing and useless). We used our iPhones. She basically delivered our guides and water bottles (on of which was different and looked to have been used.... not a big deal) and wished us well. On day 2 we bought a map of the Loire area in order to get a "big picture" perspective (we'd highly recommend providing that or advising clients to bring one). All in all the tour met or exceeded our expectations.

    Truly enjoyed biking in France... it exceeded all our expectations. Other than light showers one day, the weather was great. The routes were easy to follow, and the riding was enjoyable with villages, sunflower fields, vineyards, and castles all along the journey. We rode hybrids which were the right choice. And staying in chateaus in the villages was a perfect ending to each day!

    We really loved this trip! The cycling was mostly on beautiful cycle tracks and was very easy. The bikes were excellent. The accommodation was great and the food was excellent and we loved visiting the chateaux and castles along the way.
