"Wow….in a trip full of gems discovered as we pedal along country roads and bike paths through the Loire Valley, today we came upon the motherlode. The day was absolutely picture perfect for biking"...
"We are back from our trip to France. I wanted to thank you SO much for all your help and advice in planning this trip. The trip went extremely smoothly and we had a fabulous time. It really was a dream come true for me. Our kids loved everything."
"I had a wonderful time on my bike trip through Burgundy. The scenery was beautiful and the experience of visiting the small villages of the Cote d’or is one I will never forget. France has a reputation here of being inhospitable to tourists, but that could not be farther from the truth. The hoteliers, vintners and others I met as I biked could not have been friendlier. And the food and wine were, of course, nothing short of delightful. Your waistline will thank you for biking off the irresistible calories you’ll be taking on board."
