Christine and her husband are sub-contractors for several different outdoor touring agencies for their Dordogne adventures. We booked through Cyclomundo, but were orientated and managed by Decouverte et Loisirs. First, although we were 3 paying customers, we were only offered 1 itinerary and map. We managed to get 2 more itineraries, ( but not in one of the languages;French, that we had requested), but not additional maps. This meant we had to stick closely together as this was a cycling vacation and maps were crucial, and prevented any independent riding. On top of this, there were several discrepancies between the map and itinerary, and the actually road signage. Fortunately, my husband had his Garmin GPS and had downloaded the daily routings which helped limit somewhat our confusion.
The lodgings were mostly fair, although the rooms at the Hotel du Chateau in Rocamadour, and Le Lascaux, were at least air-conditioned. In Sarlat, the room was beyond tiny, and in Souillac, only OK. I'm not a fan of being forced to eat your meals at the restaurants they choose( half-board) , and then the menu is limited since you are half board, but I knew that when I signed up. My mistake and I won't repeat it. Fortunately, the food was generally very good. One night our party of 3 was split up because one of the hotels had made a mistake and forgotten to reserve a second room, and the last night we were sent to another hotel ( not the one originally booked) where we passed a miserable night in the stifling heat with neither fan nor A/C, nor apology. We had a great week of cycling and the Dordogne is gorgeous, but I would definitely look for another tour operator next time.
