    I have been on 6 excursions with The Chain Gang and my repeat business should speak volumes about how I value their bike tours. The tour guides are wonderful. Each guide speaks the language and handles each day's itinerary. In addition, the guides are expert bike mechanics, so when I am on tour with The Chain Gang, I don't have to worry about anything. The luggage is transferred from town to town. The accommodations are fine and the food is typically out of this world. The bikes they provide are extremely good quality trek bikes and the routes are well chosen for their sights . . . and wines. Overall, the tours are carefree and exhilarating.

    I have been on 5 chain gang holidays and have thoroughly enjoyed each of them. I have even repeated a couple of the tours but with different groups of people the whole adventure becomes a different experience. The tours are well designed to allow you to see the countryside and villages/towns at their best. The guides are knowledgeable, patient and encouraging! Really important when you’re struggling up a hill. The accommodation is good - sometimes quirky. The food is geared towards local produce and is of a high standard. The occasional picnic makes for a lovely lunchtime experience. The bikes are excellent quality and I have been tempted to take the odd one back with me as I bonded so well with them. I have tried other cycle tour companies but I keep judging them Against chain gang which is a difficult company to match let alone beat

    We have been on four Chain Gang Cycle Tours to Tuscany, the Loire, Normandy and Alsace. We go back because we have such a brilliant experience each time.

    I just returned from the Loire Valley tour, which was my seventh tour with Chain Gang. As I expected, I had a wonderful time! The Loire is full of beautiful Chateaux, sunflowers and delicious cheese. I keep coming back to Chain Gang for several reasons- the guides are fun and have a good sense of humour. The bikes are comfortable Trek hybrids. The other guests are usually very interesting, nice people (I haven't had a bad group yet!). And the food is amazing! The nightly dinners are epic, and you also get to pick from a menu, which is not the case with some companies I've toured with. Honestly, half the fun is seeing what other people are eating. The value for the price with Chain Gang is unbeatable. I've enjoyed every Chain Gang tour I've taken and will return again.

    It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
