“Loved this trip - The combination of coach and cycling ensured that we covered the three counties, and saw the highlights. The cycling is all pretty flat, and I would say easy to moderate. The guide Kristina, was a local, and wealth of information. All in all a wonderful tour.”

“This trip is honestly one of the greatest things I've ever done. The scenery was absolutely spectacular and by the end of the 7 days everyone was like family. As a young solo traveler I was pretty nervous about going but all my fears were gone within an hour of leaving Chamonix. The refuges were adorable and the food was filling and delicious. You won't regret going on this trip!”
