Tour Reviews

Peter 13/08/2012

It's been close to a month since my trip but am still on a high thinking about it. Thank you all for making it so memorable and for helping it go so smoothly. The rides were of course great but wouldn't have been the same without the delicious breakfasts, experienced route guidance, action pictures and to top it off recovery massages....quite the TdF fantasy camp combo! I hope you're enjoying yourselves during all the hard work too!

John and Tim Crawford 02/08/2011

We had a brilliant week’s riding – the most enjoyable riding experience we have ever had including the Etape de Tour (Telegraph, Galibier and Alpe d’Huez), the Galibier stage of the TdF and the Alpe d’Huez stage of the TdF. Organisation and transportation were superb. The company of the 3 Australians and the Californian was stimulating. Organisation and food wae terrific. Many thanks, John and Tim
