Robert provided excellent bikes, and more importantly, wonderful suggestions on routes, trips, and places to see. We had a great trip and the bikes were perfect. He was always available to help if we needed, but everything worked out perfectly - rain and shine! I strongly recommend you use Robert for your bikes and worry not!! Paul Collins MD

We discovered Aquitaine Bike after an internet search of companies that would rent bikes and provide routes for a self-guided tour of the Dordogne region. After contacting Robert Owensmith, the owner, it was evident that this was a company with experience. We decided that we would cycle out of 2 hotels-proposed by Robert- so that we could experience a number... More

My husband and I are not new to self-guided cycling in Europe. However, this was our first adventure with our children (ages 8 and 5) along for the adventure. We decided to rent a farmhouse for 4 weeks and bring along our nanny so that we could ride our bikes during the day. My online research implied the Dordogne Region... More

From the very first email, Robert made it easy. We were two couples, wanting to do road biking. Our bikes were ideal and the routes Robert supplied were excellent and easy to follow. Equally important, was the fact we had no idea where to stay as we have never visited the area. Again we were glad we listened to Robert... More

Using Aquitaine Bike to explore the Dordogne region proved to be a stroke of genius! Robert supplied my wife and I with two quality Trek bikes for our 10 days of cycling. He not only delivered the bikes personally to our B and B in Belves, but spent an hour with us going over suggested routes, answering our many questions,... More

This was a long held dream of ours to ride for a week in France. Robert was very helpful with his answers to many many questions in the months leading up to our trip. He provided us with good quality bikes and seamless luggage transfers. He was always available for any assistance we needed during our ride through this beautiful... More

I'll just add another rave review for Robert. Our family rented hybrid bikes for four days in the Dordogne. We are recreational bikers and have never done a biking tour before, but thanks to Robert's great equipment and excellent route suggestions, we had a fabulous time. Robert was extremely helpful in advance of our trip, recommending a great location to... More

It seems almost superfluous to add another review to the 60 five-star reviews already listed. (I didn't bother to chase up the single four star review.) Great customer service from someone who knows his business, is technically proficient and who is also unfailingly helpful and cheerful. My wife and I followed Robert's suggestions for the six-day Classic ride and really... More

We were very lucky to chance upon Robert's Aquitaine Bikes when planning our cycling holiday in France. The La Pierre road bikes were excellent with the most comfortable seats. We cycled for 8 days staying in varied accommodation for two to three nights each. The accommodations recommended by Robert were excellent and the hosts extremely helpful and friendly. When we...
