About Discover France
Discover France is a leader in self-guided cycling tours and active vacations in France & beyond. We have organized self-guided vacations for tens of thousands of people since 1994. So what exactly does it mean to go on a self-guided tour? In a self-guided tour, we book the hotels, provide the bikes and equipment, arrange luggage transfers and provide on-site support. You travel with the people that you book with, and choose your own pace. Navigation is done with a GPS device, and you also have printed roadbooks with maps and turn-by-turn instructions to have complementary navigation options throughout your tour. We provide support services 7/7 days of the week, and can intervene to help with problems anywhere in France. Choosing a self-guided hike or bike tour saves costs while still providing convenience and professional support throughout your trip. Feel free to read the reviews to see what other travelers have most appreciated.

We had an amazing experience with Discover France. We did a self guided bike tour from Ventoux all the way to Nice. Everything went smoothly, we really couldn’t have asked for a better trip.

We had an amazing experience doing the tour de france cycling challenge! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is a passionate cyclist. Thomas and Darko were INCREDIBLE guides. I cannot emphasize enough how much it was a pleasure to get to know them and how they made the trip perfect - amazing routes, support in the van, meals, accommodations etc. These 5 days with Discover France were the highlight of our 2 weeks of vacation in France. I loved seeing gorgeous rural parts of the country I typically wouldn't see and learning more about the culture from our local guides. I was at a much more novice skill level than my husband and my friend and Thomas and Darko were extremely accommodating and kind. It was also incredible to have VIP access to the Tour De France race viewing - a trueonce in a lifetime adventure! I can't wait for our next authentic and special experience with Discover France!

The good: went on a lovely journey along coastal France. The scenery and the people were great. Discover France did a great job assisting me with a new route when mine became untenable due to the fires. The Meh: They charged me $1000 over the base rate and put me in mediocre hotels claiming it was hard to find nice hotels last minute. One hotel for my original tour was in an industrial park by the highway. I looked and there were several nicer hotels with availability. They can definitely improve their hotel selection especially when they charge you almost double the base rate. They do have a cool app to guide you with GPS but it needs updating as turns weren’t always indicated and some roads were closed.
