"We had such a good time on this tour. The riding distances were very achievable and the scenery was so beautiful. We were able to ride for 3-4hours every morning, then stop at some amazing little cafe on route and finish up with an afternoon of relaxing and enjoying our new home for the night. Service was impeccable as well. Thanks again Cycling Tours. We will be back."
