This tour is magical! The hotels, food, service, bicycles and routes have been amazing!! We had so much fun. We have a couple of suggestions but they are minor. The bicycles are great but the GPS system is outdated and unhelpful. It becomes a bit of a liability in that we didn’t want to be on the “hook” for 300 Euros in case we lost it. It doesn’t help much when you can’t zoom in and when it doesn’t follow where you are relative to the correct route. These days, it’s so easy to have phones follow you and I think that a tour of this caliber should provide better GPS. The hotels with dinner included were wonderful – Chateau du Sanse and Metairie were particularly nice. I can’t even describe how incredible the service and food was- Perfect! The other hotels were adequate especially the one in Bergerac which was excellent – we found the proprietors interesting and fun to talk to. The one in Saint Emilion was in a fabulous location, although it was as you said, only 2 stars. The one in Sarlat was fair with respect to location and service but the room was nice. We would definitely book another tour with Discover France or wherever else you operate.We would be more than happy to recommend Discover France. It really was a trip of a lifetime!

We had a very enjoyable holiday thank you. The bikes were excellent and we did get a second GPS. Routes all enjoyed but probably need someone to cycle them again as there were various opportunities to stop off for drinks etc……seemed a little out of date. It is a very beautiful cycle and varied. Loved cycling through the vineyards of St Emilion and reasonably flat first few days to get you prepared for the hillier terrain of the Dordogne with its stunning scenery. We particularly enjoyed Chateau de Sanse and Le Clos D’Argenson….both excellent. Enjoyed the meals at all the hotels especially at Chateau de Sanse and Hotel La Metairie. Very much appreciated the lovely pools at all the hotels. The hotel in Sarlat was a good location and good room but the staff there were very poor totally unlike anywhere else we stayed where we were always greeted and looked after really well.
