Returned to the UK yesterday from what can only be described as the best bike tour I’ve ever been on. This trip is only 5 days but what a magnificent experience through and to the Vosges mountains & summit followed by a lively run on the famous B500 road in Germany. The best roads and scenery but the real pleasure and success of this tour was Chris Seagal as tour guide and the excellent planning and support from his team. Chris is friendly, professional, caring and very funny! He made myself and the rest of the 14 man (1 woman) team relaxed and at ease from the off. A consummate professional ensuring our group of riders with all different levels of riding experience & from different walks of life all felt included and cared for. Great laughs, company, great food (& beer) and great accommodation all made for a trip that will long be remembered. You will be inspired! Congratulations Chris & team a first class job! I’ll be back on another soon! 😉

Had the best biking experience ever last week with Chris and the gang on the Vosges tour. I loved every part of the holiday, from the incredible roads and scenery to the camaraderie within the group. Chris and the team have put together the perfect package for a taster of touring around Europe. I will be a regular customer for along time to come.
