Mont Blanc Ascent

Firstly may I just say I absolutely loved the Mont Blanc trip, and when talking to the other climbers who had gone with other agencies, our trip had the best mix of mountain huts, walks and training, so thank you, it really was superb.

Gardens of the Loire by Bike

Known throughout Europe as the 'Garden of France', the Loire Valley with its royal heritage is home to numerous botanical wonders. From the chateau of Chenonceau where the rival gardens of Diane de Poitiers and Catherine de Medici are proudly displayed, to the magnificent Renaissance gardens of Villandry and many more in between, this cycle tour is designed to inspire gardening and cycling enthusiasts. Whilst the focus is on the gardens, the many other attractions of the area complement the experience, including the Sunday markets in Amboise, the inventions of Leonardo da Vinci at Close de Luce and the vineyards of Montlouis, known for their sweet white wines.

traveller reviews

This was a wonderful trip. Definitely worth the upgrade to 3 star hotels from 2 stars. The material was generally good, and we only got off track a couple of times, mainly due to lack of signage. Some of the routes I think could be improved, but overall this was a great experience.
