Vallée de la Loire Classique - 7 Nuits - 2018-10-10
It was an excellent tour enjoyed by all The hotels all first class- the chateau accommodations were a real royal experience the most opulent being Chateau de Beauvois. However I really enjoyed Hotel Le Clos d'Amboise - quaint and very welcoming in a nice town. This is the style of accommodation we have really come to enjoy on our previous Discover France trips. The staff at the various accommodations were very friendly and helpful. The routes was generally easy to follow. The roads with scenery typical of French countryside - forests , vineyards, following the Loire river and a nice variety of small villages and towns. It was easy to visit all the main Chateau attractions and some nice surprises like Chateau of Beauregard. The bikes were durable and met our requirement and in particular our more senior members really appreciated the E Bikes which made their tour more enjoyable. About the orientation the representative Rafa arrived on time and gave us a good briefing - was accommodating in changing out one of the E Bikes for another which suited one member better and gave us all the necessary material for our tour. Trialling the bikes was a bit difficult because of rain and the Terrain at the hotel quite a steep driveway and gravel but not insurmountable. The Improvement opportunities is the trip metres for the hybrid bikes were not of great quality and most died after a couple of days. The GPS Garmin generally good although sometimes we lost the track. The batteries do not last long but we had sufficient to see us through. However better quality batteries would reduce the number we had to discard and be more environmentally friendly. And the Instruction Booklet minor issue for more senior people is font size could be larger. The tour overall however was outstanding and it is difficult to compare with other DF tours as all have been thoroughly enjoyable ( 5 tours for us now) and well organised and for that we have you to thank.

Vallée de la loire Classique - 4 nuits - 2018-10-10
First day of riding was great other than the weather! My bike worked great. My husband thinks his struggles a little but he is used to riding his own that is very nice so it’s probably in his head. Our dinner at the hotel was delicious!! Everything has been great!! Thank you so much for all your help.

We had a fabulous trip, and actually are already thinking about our next one. The route, the accommodations, the logistics - all were terrific! Please note that I loved my bike! I wish my bike here in SF were as good! Truly, we were sorry to have the trip come to an end. We were so pleased to be self-guided Discover France customers, and I'll put a 100% positive review on TripAdvisor. At one point, we were in a village when a Backroads van came along. It happened to be when Cory was changing his 2nd flat tire, but we were not at all tempted to go to a Backroads-type trip. We were comfortable being self-sufficient once you got us on our way, which you and your team did expertly. We appreciate the service and responsiveness, and probably should have called to do something about the bike, but it was just a minor annoyance. So, back to real life today. C'est dommage. Thank you !

We have really enjoyed the cycling, the country side is beautiful and of course we have loved visiting the markets. We very much enjoyed Uzès and thought the small hotel there was fabulous... loved the personal touches. In fact we’ve enjoyed every place, the hotels have all been different but comfortable, helpful and accommodating to us. Great places to lock up bikes etc The Orientation to the bikes and equipment was very good. GPS working well and small routes off main carriageways superb Good eating recommendations And we’re pretty pleased with ourselves after the hill climb today in the early afternoon heat!

We had a great time!! The tulips we're beautiful, but because of the weather, my pictures are sort of dismal. In person, they were absolutely fantastic. So glad we came early enough to see them. Worth it, even with the weather. Thank God for those ebikes!! What fun we've been having with them. I'm not sure I'll ever do another bike vacation without them. Really heavy buggers, but a blast to ride. Peter was absolutely great, the hotels are a kick, and the routes can't be beat. Oh yes... The restaurant recommendations in the cue sheet books are spot on. Thanks a million for helping us set all this up. GREAT JOB!!!

Randonnée en Alsace - 2017-10-26
We have loved our trip. Gorgeous scenery , delicious wines and meals We liked the accomodations The only comment or suggestion I would make is that at the beginning of the trip it would have helped a great deal if a representative from the tour company had met us at 6 pm as stated in our brochure. Otherwise the trip was great and we really enjoyed it! Best regards

Merci David, C'était une belle experience et une journée inoubliable pour moi qui habite en région parisienne et qui n'est pas du tout habitué à un tel altitude!! Thibault et Sébastien se sont très bien occupés de nous et ont trouvé un emplacement idéal pour regarder les coureurs. Bonne journée à vous. Gordon.
