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

Completing 60k! I never cycled 60k before!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

I would advise them that the cabins are extremely small with very little hanging space for anything. So bring minimal amount of clothes & shower gel!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not particularly.

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

I thoroughly enjoyed the vacation & the food & cycling were excellent. The hosts on the barge are slightly eccentric.

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

Biking through the towns with our tour guide, Inka, who was an exceptional leader. The ride was challenging, leisurely, and culturally rewarding!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be aware that the accommodations aboard the barge in the cabins are VERY limiting and small. I had a single that was for two people but with one, the space was limiting.

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

Using bikes prevented auto pollution!

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

Very enjoyable.

review 9 Sep 2007

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

Cycling up to Sancerre laden with wine I had bought at a tasting but being rewarded for the hard climb with a fantastic view from the top and later drinking the wine at dinner!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Travel light. There isn't much space in the cabins and you don't need loads of evening clothes. However pack a jumper as in early September it was a bit chilly sitting outside in the evenings.

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

Our trip included stops every day for coffee and cake shop stops. We also visited castles, a garden etc.

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

I really enjoyed the vacation. All 18 of us got on very well and each day's cycling was just the right amount of cycling and sight-seeing. Martin & Marjorie's hospitality and food were excellent. Our cycle guide, Yon Willan (sorry - don't know spelling) was fantastic and I will miss having him around!
