Alsace by Bike Tour Review

Cycling through vineyards and quaint villages in Alsace

"What a wonderful way to observe and experience the 'picture perfect' French countryside and it's very attractive and interesting villages. The cycle paths and quiet roads allowed for a relaxing, mostly traffic free ride and we particularly enjoyed visiting some of the smaller, less known villages that are off the tourist path. The bikes and maps provided were great, we were warmly welcomed into each hotel, which we found to be consistently comfortable and the meals provided were delightful. Would heartily recommend."

J Pitt | Australia

"Our bike ride through Alsace region was delightful and fun. Towns from Strasbourg to Colmar were particularly charming. Mulhouse offered us a great visit to their car museum, well worth a visit. Maps and instructions went well, along with our accompanying orange arrow, which was most helpful. Logistics of the trip went well, with no mishaps. Bike setup, with notes visible as you rode along also worked well. A little time spent the evening before studying the maps and notes very useful, backed up with mobile with satellite maps."

Provence Backroads Tour Reviews

Cycling in Provence, France |  <i>Ewen Bell</i>

"We recently went on your self guided cycling holiday - Provence Backroads. It was truly a wonderful holiday. The bicycles were faultless - so comfortable and reliable, the maps were very detailed and quite easy to follow although we also had GBS which faciliated matters further. We travelled through varied terrain and saw beautiful villages and stunning scenery. Had a lovely time in Saint Baux Arles and Saint Remy. We were not very impressed with Tarascon, but received a warm welcome in the hotel. The Mitchellin star food in Saint Remy was divine. Would definitely go on a cycling holiday again."

H Anwen | UK

"Most memorable moments: The cycling - quiet roads, interesting sights, great guide notes.We had a great adventure with UTracks. Everything was well organized, the roads we cycled on had very little traffic, yet interesting scenery and we passed through many beautiful villages. The accommodations seemed quite a bit better than the 2 star rating that was stated."

Loire Valley Castles Tour Review

Discover the castles of the Loire Valley on a centre based cycling trip

"The UTracks cycling in the Loire was totally positive. The hotel and food amazing. The cycle tracks around the rural lanes, flat contour, spring time, we just loved it. The e-bikes were in great order and we had no problems with these. The track markings, coupled with the book of maps provided and our own gps, made navigation work well. We would be very happy to book with UTracks again."

G Watt | NZ

"I will just write you a brief summary of our experience: FABULOUS!!!The inn in Chitenay was very charming, its yard space relaxing, the room quite lovely and comfortable, and meals were very good. Above all, the staff was superb - could not do enough to help, and could not have been more pleasant. At the top of them all was Laure who had a great sense of humor, followed through on what she promised, and made us feel quite at home.We had a wonderful trip, and would definitely use your company in the future or recommend it to others."

Paris to London by Bike: Guided Tour Reviews

Cycling on the Paris to London cycle path

"My trip was a great holiday with a great, energetic and well informed guide who was multi lingual and nothing was a problem to her. The hotels were 1st class as was the food. Information about the tour route was outstanding. The transport of luggage by the back up boys was excellent and they were very helpful in other ways. We were very fortunate to be blessed with fine weather which helped a lot. I would recommend this tour to anybody as they are very professional in what they do."

P Holt | Australia

"Excellent way of exploring around Paris and seeing parts you wouldn't probably go to if by yourself. Biking not difficult, allowing you to take in the scenery. Barge hotel, unpack once, compact and very comfy. Meals excellent, great variety, terrific atmosphere on board and lots of fun. Captain and guide great value. Lovely experience for a week."

Burgundy Highlights Tour Review

Cruising past castles on the Burgundy Cycle |  <i>Pat Kline</i>

"I had a very good time in France. The trip was well organized and the scenery beautiful, we travelled through some wonderfull villages and tasted some great wines. I would certainly consider arranging another trip through UTracks and will suggest using you guys to any friends or colleagues that I can."

T.R. | Canada

"The 4 day Burgundy Highlights self guided cycling tour was the highlight of our 3 week trip to France. We also cycled the Loire Valley but thought the scenery and food of the Burgundy region was better. Cycling through the vineyards and quaint villages was lovely. We highly recommend this trip."

Cycle the Western Front Tour Reviews

Typical landscapes of the Western front

"We were happy with the standard of accommodation, the locations were excellent, especially in Amien, Arras and Bethune, where our hotels overlooked or were next to the town squares. And our bags were always waiting for us. We didn’t experience any problems with the bikes and the route maps were easy to follow. We liked how the routes kept us away from busy main roads unless it was absolutely necessary. Overall it was an excellent tour and we would recommend it. For us, it was a great introduction to cycling in Europe."

R Hollow | Australia

"The tour was very well designed, allowing a variety of options for WW1 cemetery/memorial visits. To get the most out of the route (which contains far more than what you can fit in each day) it is recommended to do some research before the tour. The Australian, Canadian, British and French memorials were incredibly moving. It was all so interesting! The route was varied across farming areas, small villages and well thought out access into the larger towns and cities. The choice of hotels were excellent (and we appreciated our early bookings ensuring we had great rooms and locations). Just make sure you plan to have food in your panniers, as there were very few places to stop for food out in the countryside! We had a fantastic time, and thoroughly enjoyed exploring this important part of Australia's war history, in Europe, at cycle pace."
