A Recent Review of this tour

Our biking tour with Ginette was top notch from start to finish. The instructions for logistics were perfect, the breakfast picnic a rate and delightful treat, and the biking was the perfect combination of engaging and relaxing at the same time. Plus, Ginette is just a pleasure. It was great day and one of our favorite days of the whole trip! Thank you.
