France & England - Paris to London Bike and Hotel Tour. *****
This trip was also booked through Rad & Reisen and was operated by Girolibero Cycle Tours. Our group was a mix of guided and unguided riders and we all met at our hotel in Paris the night before we started the ride. The guided group were a mix of mainly Italians plus several English speakers from Australia, the USA and England. We were supported by our guide plus a luggage/mechanical crew of two with the latter moving all riders' luggage onto the next hotel every morning. Our bikes were Girolibero step through 27 speed hybrids and quite appropriate for the tour. Over a week we rode out of Paris and up the coast to arrive at Dieppe on day 5 before sailing across to Newhaven and then riding north through East Grinstead and arriving near Parliament House in London. Overall, a brilliant experience with a lovely group of people. The riding was superb, the hotels were excellent and the provided meals were first class. To top it off our guide, Tammy, was incredibly helpful and her support crew provided first class service every day.
