I booked the tour just for me however I met amazing people on the day. I really enjoyed the whole tour. The day started off gloomy (with respect to the weather) however Golden promised he'd make a call to the man upstairs and I guess he did because it turned out to be a lovely sunny day. He, Andrew Golden, was a superb tour guide- great enthusiasm and charisma. If only the bicycle rides could have been longer and had personal baskets attached to each bicycle! Not that I'm complaining, just saying I loved it so much I wanted to stay out on the bicycle for longer and carry more for the picnic. Brilliant tour, definitely recommend it :)!

This activity was one of the best things we did on our trip to France!

Travel guide was good but needed to be clearly identifiable as such when meeting the group at the train station. He should also be... there early to act as a focus point. more
