We loved our tour with Yohan! He was very knowledgeable about the area and knew his way around. He was very accommodating and took us on a stop off at a local winery we were curious seeing. The three chateaux we saw were well worth the visit. And the bike ride through the cute villages and pristine country and woods were gorgeous. This was one of our favorite memories from our time so far in France. Highly recommend!

it was so amazing. The guides genuinely cared about our interests and gave us a great day. The bikes were phenomenal and the guide had a lot of advice to offer. The homemade lunch was delicious and perfect. We were able to ride 76 KM and see 2 Chateaus. The day couldn't have been better. Must do tour.

My family had a great time with Yohan. We had a lot of fun seeing the Chenin countryside on e-bikes. We had a lovely picnic lunch and then visited a few vineyards. Yohan has great knowledge of the region and wine. I’m glad we went on this tour.

Excellent treat from Yohan. Great host and very friendly. We had great lunch and wine with beautiful spots as well. Very recommended
