Customer Testimonials

We are always pleased to get feedback from our customers. Here are a selection of comments we have received over the years:

Probably enjoyed it even more than LEJOG

  • Type of cycling & the road surfaces were superb
  • Scale of challenge – particularly the climbing
  • Scenery
  • Group camaraderie

Ian May August 2018

The pre-comms were great - the detail about right - felt very secure that everything was being well handled - and the start is always a bit of a shaky time so it is great that you give us so much reassurance and information on what to expect, what to do and what not to do.

The route was brilliant - whoever created it is a genius - it just flowed and built to the Ventoux climax - couldn’t have been better

So, all in all - another great Peak Tours experience.

Thanks again for creating such amazing personal life changing experiences - I’ll be back!

Peak Tours picnics became legendary. Very healthy. Very tasty – better sometimes than the evening meals at local restaurants.

Excellent all-round tour organisation.

It would be difficult to image it being any better without paying premium rates for pointless upgrades. Don’t change. You’re the best.

Justine Longmore September 2018

The tour organisation was perfect.

The tour overall was just excellent!

Jon Seed September 2018

The route kept us off busy roads and we got to see some lovely countryside.
We thought LEJOG last year was good, this was better still!

Myles Agar September 2018

The more I reflect on the tour the better the organisation seems. Thanks for providing the experience of a lifetime.

James Mcgee June 2018

Full marks. Fantastic trip.

Rod Matheson August 2018

The route was just fantastic, everything I hoped for.

The tour leader and back up were top notch, could not be bettered.

Every cyclist should do this tour!!!

Steve Jones August 2018

The food provided at brew stops and picnic lunches was ideal for riding, there was enough of it, and it allowed and even encouraged proper refuelling. Set dinners were good too, notably the last night in Nice.

We have done quite a lot of tours, some very good ones too, but this is the best organised of the lot. There is a very evident focus on an enjoyable /memorable experience for all the riders and safety too. Isabelle is an absolute star in her organisation and establishing rapport with hotels and restaurants.

This is an absolutely top quality product, fantastic route and organisation. Customer service is magnificent.

Nigel & Jane Rees August 2018

We loved the variety and quirkiness of some of the accommodation. This all added to the /French experience.

The route had well chosen roads with fantastic scenery.

The pre-planned support was excellent. When there are problems it does rely on a very proactive and hard-working team leader and support, this is exactly what we had.

Martin & Pauline Casey June 2018

I admit I was surprised with the high quality of the accommodation. I also enjoyed the variety. We stayed in amazing hotels and a 300 year old room. Our “worst” room was interestingly odd. I am amazed how you find such interesting places. Plus, what a great value.

Every day I marvelled over the amazing route. Most rides have a fair amount of stupid junk miles to get between the good parts. This had almost none. Amazing! I loved the small quiet roads, the villages, the mountains, the fields. Many times, I thought “this is genius!” You got us to amazing places and hooked them together on a wonderful, interesting way.

Communication was excellent.  I had lots of questions, coming from California was a challenge. All my questions and concerns were answered quickly.

It was a lifetime event for us, I have nothing but praise. Its obvious why you have so much repeat business. The riders on this trip constantly praised your company. Many were return clients.

‘I’ve just mailed my tour evaluation to you. Though I gave you highest marks in every category, it really isn’t enough. I feel compelled to write you to say how amazing and wonderful your tour was.

 

Your web site was grand. It was full of useful and humorous info. It was a huge factor in helping us choose your touring company from distant California.

 

Your leaders were wonderful in so many ways. They were organized, supportive, sensitive, helpful, and just plain fun. I can’t say enough about how they worked together to make it a lifetime experience. If you have special awards for great support staff, they should be crowned.

 

The route was stunning. I don’t know how you did it, but the roads were great, and the traffic was minimal. Someone really worked hard on the route, and it showed every day. I loved every mile but maybe 3 at the most. It was impressive, Well done!

 

The accommodations exceeded my exceptions by a huge factor. We stayed in an amazing high tech over the top hotel one night and a 300 year old room another. The variety was wonderful, and I enjoyed each night.

 

The food… Oh the food. I am in tears. I am in California, a great place to live. But where is my daily French cheese? My fresh bread? And how did you include the meals you did at the price you charge? The last night dinner was particularly amazing.

 

Thanks for a memory that will be relived over and over again. No wonder so many on our tour were repeat customers of Peak.

 

Take care. I wish all of you continues success in your endeavours.’

Curtis Corlew June 2018

Will recommend it to everyone we cycle with.

One thing we really like about Peak Tours, is how easy you make the transportation of our bikes both to the start point and then back home. We really appreciated being able to meet the vans on the motorway to drop off our bikes the evening before the ferry crossing. We find the courier service you organise for returning our bikes very convenient too. Many thanks!

Derek & Jill Ridyard June 2018

I’ve done 3 tours with Peak Tours now – this was easily the best. I loved it!

Mel Johnson June 2018

The changes in scenery day to day were stunning. Ventoux was as tough as I’d been led to believe and the other climbs were also challenging but provided a real sense of satisfaction when you reached the summit!

The whole experience was terrific. From the time I dropped my bike off at Glossop to the time I collected it after the ride, It was a memorable couple of weeks.

Peter Millington June 2018

Fabulous route, so few cars, wonderful scenery, wild flowers everywhere. Well done!

Judy Wrightson June 2018

Really good mix of B&Bs and hotels, fascinated by the old monastery in St. Flour and Le Demeure St. Ours in Loche.

The route was a great experience, from the flatter areas in northern France through to the massive central, the vineyards, the lavender fields and the total change through to the southern med area. Achieved a long standing ambition of cycling up Mont Ventoux and visiting the Tom Simpson memorial.

The tour organisation was first class, well done everyone.

I have already recommended the tour to several friends, rode LEJOG last year – 2017 – and thoroughly enjoyed it, but the C2M was the better by far – a great experience.

Graham Bullass May/June 2018

The route was just brill.

The best organised tour I have been on.

David Blomfield May/June 2018

I honestly don’t know how you could better the tour organisation.

Exceptional!

Professional!

Mary Ahern May/June 2018

The route was amazing, great, excellent. Evan had some great swim stops. Good safe ‘brew’ stops, great lunch stops. Contingency plans for weather conditions.

Renee August 2018

This is my second adventure with Peak Tours and I travel from New Zealand to take up the challenge. I can’t fault the organisation, the communication and the planning of Peak’s Tours. Absolutely nothing is left to chance. I do marvel at the routes that are planned which cover such varied and interesting landscapes, villages,(is there anybody there?), wonderful quiet roads and you really get to see the beauty of this magnificent country.  Each day offers so much variety and as people say every day gets better. How does that happen??
Oh the brew van what a fabulous sight it is. Just where Isabelle said she would be and with so much nourishing food. Picnic lunches were just the best and cafe lunches really good for a little change.
Our hard working French tour leader Isabelle is one out of the box! She really puts her heart and soul into making this trip so memorable. Her passion for France and her love of people makes her the ideal guide for a trip to be cherished.
A special thanks to Paul and Martin who were always there when you needed them and even if you didn’t need them there they were. Nothing was a problem when it came to bike maintenance.
