Reviews for Provence cycling tour, France


review 17 Sep 2009

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Cycling up Mont Ventoux. Wow! Its tough, very tough, but worth the effort. Particularly nice to have a really fabulous hotel at the bottom to relax afterwards.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Do try to make the initial meeting with the local rep. We didn't and there were a few issues - for example some of our dinner arrangements - that it would have been better to iron out before they became issues. We were a bit disappointed that we weren't warned in advance that the meeting with the local rep wouldn't be possible because it was a Sunday - this would only have taken one simple e-mail or phone call.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes, in the sense that we were supporting local business.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent - very scenic, great cycling routes, great food and we were well looked after in terms of routes, maps, accommodation and food.
