Provence & Camargue, September 2022
Good morning, My wife and I have just been on the above trip which we booked through Velociped.
This was an excellent experience for us. The hotels/restaurants, the bicycles, the routes and organisation were all excellent and we enjoyed it very much indeed! In particular, the introduction from Jocken Roperz was detailed and very helpful especially in suggesting a couple of extensions to the route which suited us well.
We have only one suggestion: consider having a start and finish in an Avignon centre hotel for people arriving without a car. Then there is better opportunity for sightseeing. Hotel La Ferme is very nice but quite a way from the railway station.
Many thanks to everyone responsible for the marvellous tour we have been so lucky to enjoy. Best regards, Paul W.

Cher Monsieur, Toutes mes excuses pour mon délai de réponse. Après notre escapade à vélo, j’ai repris le travail et les mauvaises habitudes….Mais je tenais à vous répondre car nous avons passé un excellent séjour à tout point de vue: le choix des itinéraires et les indications, des hôtels, des restaurants… Chaque jour était une découverte et une agréable surprise :-)Nos affaires sont arrivées chaque jour dans le nouvel endroit dans les temps, pas de paperasserie à l’arrivée dans les hôtels, un personnel toujours très accueillant, ce qui était très appréciable! Bref de vraies vacances, détente totale et le bonheur de se balader à vélo à travers les vignes. L’année prochaine on tentera peut-être un itinéraire d’un niveau un peu plus difficile (parfois nous restions un peu sur notre faim et avions encore envie de pédaler). Un grand merci donc! Meilleures salutations, Clarisse D.

Thank you for an enjoyable bike tour. A few comments on our Tour: 1. The standard of accommodation and meals was very high. Congratulations! 2. It would be good to have had a note in the blue folder in BIG, BOLD type, telling us to check all contents carefully in case changes to our itinerary had been made following our travel agent booking. 3. Suggest your next purchase of bicycles be genuine 'cross' bikes, i.e., ones with fatter tyres to cope with the parts of the route which are not on paved roads. (Rear-forks suspension would also be good!) Thank you again, and it was nice to meet the brother of your "boss" yesterday! Au revoir! ROBYN (and BOB)
Canal Du Midi, October 2017
..I would be very very happy to repeat the trip and would (and have already done so) recommend to others that they should do this.
We thought the accommodation was superb, the breakfasts were very good and the evening meals (the three-course table d'hôte offerings) were unexpected and excellent. I'm planning to put together a few notes about some things which might be worth considering for future tours on that route, but of course as it stands, it was great.
So again, thank you both for arranging an experience we won't forget and which was as good as any of the other six multi-day cycle tours we've done around NZ.
Best wishes, Ross Stewart
Provence Côte d'Azur, 19.-26.3.16
Bonjour France Bike, Merci Bien for all your help on this trip. This is our last day. The trip has been most enjoyable overall. We are leaving our bikes unlocked at hotel ibis. It is stored in one of the conference rooms. Ask for Olivier. He is a very nice guy.
When I return to the US, I will send my bank information for the refund.
You are the best. I would like to do another trip with your company in the future.
Sincerely, , T. Dao
Périgord de Luxe, September 2016
Hi Jolande and France-Bike team.
I just wanted to let you know how the trip went. The accommodation was excellent. We enjoyed staying at every place. Chateau de la Treyne was exceptional and memorable. Les Vieilles Tours was also quite lovely and the owners exceptionally hospitable and generous. The 3 course meals were also very good. The chef at the chateau was truly inspired.
We liked the idea of having 2 nights in both Sarlat and Rocomadour. These are beautiful places and it also gave us a chance to have a break from cycling. The hills were a bit challenging and we did have to walk up some of them. The countryside is spectacular and worth the effort. Sometimes the route took us on busy roads but probably this couldn't be avoided, especially in the Sarlat area.
The tour providers were very reliable and helpful.
Thanks again Jolande for all of your help!
Maybe next year our old bodies will do another trip. :-
All the best! Helen & Virendra
I didn’t get a chance to fill out the survey, but I wanted to send feedback along to you. I was one of the members of the “Donnan” party, and we recently completed the Luberon bike trip. The trip exceeded my expectations almost in all regards—I thought the route was excellent, and the accommodations were mostly perfect. Had I filled out the survey, I would have given you high marks in every category. Thank you for providing us with an excellent cycling experience. Regards, Wendy Donnan
Languedoc-Camargue, June 2016
Dear France Bike, We are writing to say thank you to our tour facilitator in Montpellier, Mikhaila, who met us at the Kyriad Hotel on June 26 and gave us our bikes, our maps and our directions. We had a wonderful tour and I am writing a travel story about the tour for an American newspaper. Is there any way to please get this message to Mikhail and: 1 Give her our thanks, again. We loved the tour -- it was wonderful, we did the five days in the Languedoc and Camargue. Self-guided. Can you ask Mikhaila if we can use her full name and title in the story, and if so, can she please email it to me? We loved that it was not Provence or Tuscany because the Voie Vertz was less crowded, which we liked. Many thanks best Bob Rowley
The Doubs - between Burgundy and Alsace, June 16
Many thanks to you and your colleagues for the tour we've got around Dijon last ten days!!! Very good and various accommodation, good bikes, perfect logistics, excellent services - we're really pleased for all that!!!
We did 560 km totally and I'd like to say that combination of two trips South Burgundy and along the Doubs was a good idea as we've seen two different regions at once: vineyards and riverside landscapes. As well our decision to go from Cluny to Châlons-sur-Saône visiting Mâcon was really great because we explored the bike tunnel close to Cluny!
Tones of thanks:
Hope for further cooperation, Vladimir Migulin, Russia

Danube de Passau à Vienne
Cher monsieur, Je vous réponds un peu tard au sujet de notre voyage au bord du Danube. Nous avons été très satisfaits de l'organisation: aucun problème avec votre partenaire. Les hébergements et repas nous ont complètement satisfaits. Il y a juste l'hôtel de Linz qui ne correspondait pas à nos attentes. Il s'agit de l'hôtel Mariott. Le confort des chambres n'est pas en cause. Mais le personnel était peu aimable le check in a duré au moins 30 minutes et le repas à l'hôtel n'était pas assez copieux pour des jeunes gens affamés. Nous recommanderons ce séjour à nos amis. Bien cordialement. Françoise Méresse
