Incredible journey on two wheels - dipping into wine and ocean.

We cycled the Beaches and Vineyards of Bordeaux trip on our classic tandem - which really did offer double the fun on a bicycle made for two! This trip is based in the spectacular Medoc triangle on the left of the Gironde estuary. The scenery was spectacular every day - switching from pedalling through some of the most famous vineyards in the world which were literally groaning with grapes ready for harvest, scenic wine villages keen to offer tastings, and magnificent chateaux overlooking the vineyards to the amazing contrast with the wildly beautiful Atlantic Coast where nature was truly in charge, the towering sand dunes and the pretty seaside towns. It was made all the more memorable by the warmth of the sunshine - and the friendliness of the many locals we met en route who, despite our lack of French, were understanding and helpful and enjoyed the spectacle of our tandeming efforts. With most of the route along designated cycling paths it felt very safe and the area is perfectly set up for cyclists. Coming from an area where there are very few dedicated cycle paths it was amazing to see the cyclist being given such a high priority. The surfaces were of motorway standard which made cycling a real joy and easy to cover the relatively large distances required. The organisation was exceptional - all hotels knew of our impending arrival and the luggage transfer was brilliantly easy. Our luggage was actually waiting for us in our rooms when we arrived at our accommodation. Billed as a "leisurely" activity level, this truly is a family friendly route which will create many memorable moments etched in your memory bank. This is one of those rare occasions when you wish you could award six stars!!

Great to do an Exodus trip and a private holiday in one! We cycled from place to place at our own speed, enjoying picnic lunches along the way.

I loved the freedom of cycling from place to place at our own speed, and being able to stop when and where we wanted. The predominantly flat terain made for easy cycling, and we covered approx 40 miles each day.
