We are an extended family of eleven (ages 27 to 69) who came together for a family reunion. From first idea to realization, Mark and Debbie answered all our questions, coordinated everything, and made it happen. This trip was perfect. Mark and Debbie fitted our bicycles, gave us maps and options, suggested restaurants and other stopping points along the routes....

Loire Valley Breaks, run by Debbie & Mark, is a great experience. We stayed 6 nights & had 5 days of touring, 4 on bikes. Each day our itinerary was given to us, with maps and tips. Rides were great and let us really see the region. Our teen daughters loved it. Debbie and Mark were incredibly helpful & knowledgable....

We found Debbie and Mark to be very professional and personable people who ensured we had a great time on our cycling holiday. We typically started our day with a personal tour of an interesting historic site or wine tour and then set off for fun, easy cycling amongst the small villages and vineyards. They provided great suggestions for places...

We really enjoyed our stay here during our family's five-day visit to Loire Valley. The hosts were very helpful and knowledgable. Their recommended cycling routes and stops-of-interest -- from historic chateaus and castles to dreamy sunflower fields and fascinating caves -- were all so lovely. The property where we stayed was scenic and relaxing, and our kids loved the pool,...

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...

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...

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.
