Official Tour Operator of Tour de France
2014 Tour de France : we take you to the center of the action !
Judging by the course difficulty and route, next year’s race is going to be a real nail-biter!
As the official Tour de France tour operator, we are exclusively able to offer VIP Access Packages along the course. Imagine hanging out at the official Departure Village, following the Tour's Caravan, flying in a helicopter to meet the cyclists en route and popping open champagne at the finish line on the Champs-Elysées…
Come with us to experience first-hand the blood, sweat, tears—and of course—fantastic landscapes and delicious food and wine along the route.
Running from July 5 to July 27, the Tour's 21 stages cover a total distance of 3,656 kilometers! Before gliding to a heart-stopping end in Paris, this punishing race will test the will of its world-class athletes. VIP fans will be close to the action as cyclists trample over the potentially devastating cobbles of Paris-Roubaix, soar the demanding high-altitude finishes in the Alps, Pyrenees and Vosges mountains and go for broke at the race's sole time-trial at Périgueux.

the world's greatest race:
I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the trip in the Pyrenees; what a great place! Everything went very well, and I mean everything! The accommodations were spectacular, the food was spectacular, and our guide, Olivier, was spectacular. He really went out of his way to accommodate our small, diverse group in every way he could.

I can't thank you enough for everything you did to
make my France cycling experience one I will never forget.
It was awesome. No one can fully appreciate the beauty of
the Alps until you have ridden them on a bike. I hope to go
back next year.
Thanks for everything.

I could go on and on about how each
of you were a delight to be with. The accommodations, food,
communication, the boat trip, the daily drama of the race.
You were all amazing. We will never forget this experience.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank
you, and all of the crew, for the great trip to the Tour de
France. I have some idea of what it takes to put together
a trip like that, and how many details are involved.

It was an adventure of a lifetime!

Just a quick note of thanks for the
great time in France. I enjoyed the riding and people, both
guests and your team. The Tour was very exciting and capped
off a great trip.
This is the first time I travel with a tour package and I must say I was 100% happy and impressed with it, definitely the idea of travelling in a tour with a company has changed to a positive way.
I was impressed with the support and
professionalism of the DF team. On every front, they were
helpful, knowledgeable, and ran the operation smoothly and
on time - which is difficult with a large group.
I had a great time with you all in the Pyrenees. I try to expain it to people, but you just can't imagine it unless you've done it yourself. Discover France does such a fine job in helpling people like me realize their dreams. I have wanted to ride those roads and climb those mountains for well over twenty years. I finally did it!!! Thank you all so much.

I am still grinning ear to ear from
the incredible adventure over in France. You and your team
did a fantastic job of creating a pretty magical mix of great
riding, awesome company, sightseeing, good food, and of course
fine wine! "
