It has been a desire of mine to go back to the Loire Valley since I first visited there in 1999 when my friends and I backpacked our way across Western Europe after college. I only learned how to cycle 3 years ago as an adult, so to be able to return to this area not only fulfilled this desire, but to also be able to do it on a bicycle, was a dream come true for me. Our guides for the trip, were simply amazing and I cannot say enough about them. I have raved about my trip to my family, friends and colleagues upon my return as I know that going with them was one of the key reasons I enjoyed my trip so much and really, it was the highlight of my visit to France. Amazing. Had a great time and can't wait for my next one! Loved that we had a small group.
