Reviews for Dordogne biycling tour, France


review 25 Aug 2011

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

Sarlat - we just loved wandering around the medieval part of town.

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

Pack as light as possible, but for all temps (the caves were quite cold). If you want to visit lots of attractions, you'd need to be a very strong rider to have enough time to do this.

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


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

Almost perfect...4 1/2 stars. Just a couple of comments if you want to make this a 5 star vacation: A map of Rocamadour showing where our hotel was (as it wasn't actually in Rocamadour) - we got one a map soon as we arrived at the Tourist center, but it took us a while to find that, and even then finding the hotel took us a while! Also, the restaurant in Rocamadour (Chateau), had our reservations, but got our bill wrong 2 nights in a row (kept trying to charge us for dinner). It might have helped with this particular restaurant to have a voucher. All the other eating establishments were fabulous. The hotel in Souillac (St Martin's) was *absolutely* gorgeous, and we loved it our 1st night there (it was cooler), but when the temperatures went up a week later, not having air conditioning at the same hotel made it quite uncomfortable. Since I was ill and unable to cycle this time, we just rented a car and drove. Since the distances were so close we had lots of time to explore all he sights. We enjoyed the area so much though, that we will most probably book this same vacation again and actually cycle it the next time :)
