If you are wanting a small group touring company, then this is perfect. No large tour buses and waiting for slow guests to get back. Mark and Debbie did a great job from their pickup in the morning each day until bringing us back to our accommodation (Secrets de Loire) after dinner. They had great recommendations for us for local... More

Thanks for your kind words - we're pleased you enjoyed your stay. We think the small group approach works - so we can be flexible and ensure all our guests are having a good time - and it's good to have confirmation from our guests that we are getting this right. I'm also pleased you enjoyed the local restaurants we... More

We have just had the most wonderful few days cycling, wine tasting and fine dining in the beautiful Loire Valley under the expert guidance of Debbie and Mark from Loire Valley Breaks. Not to be deterred by the reports of the river flooding, we found everything we could have wished for in a lovely, relaxing holiday. Pre dinner drinks in... More

I have been very remiss in not writing about this wonderful experience sooner. We spent a wonderful four nights in mid 2014 with Debbie and Mark. We were not seasoned cyclists and not all that fit.

We have had some time to reflect upon our bicycling vacation in Loire Valley in June 2015. My family and I consider it one of the most enjoyable and fun. We stayed in l'Epaisse, and loved the renovated 19th century accommodation, it was modern comfortable, well lit, the showers were always hot and the Wifi fast. Debbie and Mark Willes... More

We had a lovely stay-- the cycling was arranged in a completely professional impeccable way -- cycle routes, bikes , lunch recommendations.

We actually visited last year, October 2014, but I only just registered on tripadvisor and started writing reviews. It's worth reviewing a trip a year on, when you still talk about it continuously.
