Reviews for Provence self guided cycling vacation, gastronomic


review 27 May 2019

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

The unknown! Everyday was whatever we wanted it to be, because we had the freedom to bike quickly to our next destination, or stop and gaze at every landscape or building or ANYTHING we felt like doing! We discovered something new everyday.

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

If you book it for the time frame we did (mid May) beware the mistral winds! They are more fierce at this time, as we discovered very quickly. It did not negatively affect our experience because we are athletic and love a challenge, but we can appreciate how some people with lesser endurance would find it difficult. If you're not, just be aware that at some points you may feel it best to dismount and walk the bike for short distances here and there. And bring a jacket because wind makes any beautiful weather seem more chilly!

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


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

10/10. Everything was taken care of by the cycling company. It was a worry free and stress free vacation. Highly recommended!
