He made the tour really fun and interesting with his recommendations, jokes, and knowledge. The bike ride was great with the beautiful scenery and certainly gave me a workout. I can’t say enough about this. I will treasure this experience.

Just perfect in every way! Bikes were great, host was great, and it was easy to travel on the train with the group. Going to the farmers market and having a picnic at Versailles is one of the best things I’ve ever done. Loved every bit of this!
