Following cancellation of our planned holiday due to COVID we opted for 4 days cycling as a low key outdoor option. Robert truly delivered from advice about the the journey - we travelled by train from London - to the right places to stay on our tour. We hired hybrid bikes which were delivered to us in immaculate condition and each equipped with carry box with spare inner tube and waterproof pouch but Robert assured us that he would come to us if there were any problems - there weren't. We were an adult family group of mixed ability and Robert spent time to ensure everyone was comfortable with the bike and then took us through the routes and accompanying notes. The routes had been very well planned took us to many lovely places along quiet backroads - everyone had a great time and it will be challenging for our first choice next time.

I had planned a self-guided bike trip/route through the Dordogne with rentals to be arranged on arrival. So glad I contacted Robert at that point. We rented hybrid bikes from him and his equipment and service were great- with bikes brought to our hotel. But more importantly, he sat down with us for at least an hour, reviewing our planned itinerary and recommending significant changes, which I am so glad we made. He has a wealth of knowledge about the area, ranging from history to practical advise. The changes allowed for a more varied trip; for example, they included some prehistoric sights that we might have otherwise skipped and ended up being one of our favorite activities. His recommendations for places to stay, roads to bike/ avoid and towns to visit were spot- on and very detailed. Would whole-heartedly recommend and would make sure to contact him and reserve bikes earlier than I did!

The highlight of our Dordogne stay. Great individual plans for us, great equipment. Robert gave confidence to us as New Zealand pensioners. The highest praise for all aspects of the experience.

My husband and I recently returned from our biking trip in Dordogne France and highly recommend Aquitaine Bikes. Amazing bikes, service and information from Robert from our first email contact in early August through to our day of departure on September 17 th 2019. Robert delivered our bikes and gear to our B&B and spent over 2 hours with us telling us about the area, it’s rich pre-history, fitting us on the bikes, and suggesting a loop ride through the Dordogne and The Lot. We had 19 days of cycling and Robert’s recommended route included scenic and quiet secondary roads, quaint villages, caves, cave dwellings, and great B&B’s. Most impressive about the route was how perfect the daily cycling recommended distances were for us as they allowed us to get in some great cycling ( a great balance between some climbs and flat), time to visit sites and have a coffee and croissant in the beautiful villages as well as making it to our B&B’s by late afternoon. We really appreciated Robert’s list of recommended places to stay as we didn’t have to spend a lot of time researching our accommodation. We were completely satisfied with all of his accommodation recommends. Towards the end of the trip, my husband had a very minor issue with his bicycle and after contacting Robert about it, Robert came out the following day and rectified the issue. Such great service! We loved this experience so much, we are already talking about returning next fall and doing another part of the Dordogne with Aquitaine Bikes.

Aquitaine Bike provides a thorough and delightful bike tour of the Dordogne. Robert shares a wealth of background information, from pre-history to the dark and middle ages up to the present. The well-mapped tour routes are a perfect combination of cycling and sightseeing in this charming region full of castles, chatteaus, walled cities and Cro- Magnon (and earlier) caves and Troglodyte dwellings. The Lapierre bikes are comfortable and perform well. The hotel recommendations were excellent; we had our best meals in France--and enjoyed socializing--with our hosts and other guests.
