Charles Austin, France

Excellent biking experience through the greenways of Bourgogne Google Traduction The "Best of Bourgogne" is a great trip that is mainly along the green ways through Burgundy, but you will need to be comfortable with a small bit of with-traffic riding in and out of the towns you will be visiting.

Rebecca Howse , France

Thank you John-Michelle. The tour was amazing. Beautiful scenery and fabulous wine! Justin and Rebecca - Australia!

Irene Michlin, France

We had a wonderful experience on Burgundy tour. The information pack is good quality, and we had such a great support. Two calls during the actual cycling were dealt with in 30 minutes, and even a whim of one group member on Sunday evening to have a different bike was indulged immediately. Thanks!
