Having done a "big group" cycling tour previously for the Tour de France, my wife and I were looking for something more customised, that would take in the classic climbs of the Pyrenees, but also some of the less travelled back roads and give us a range of experiences.
After a lot of research on the net, we decided to book a 7-day tour with Jean-Philippe.
The experience was fantastic. In every way his service was faultless.
Jean Philippe is a guy who is genuinely passionate about cycling. He and his wife live in the Pyrenees, so his local knowledge is brilliant. On top of that, he is a very warm and friendly person with a great sense of humour, who immediately made us feel welcome and excited to be riding in such a beautiful part of the world.
Although we love cycling and trained for our trip, we are definitely not elite riders. At all times, Jean-Philippe was very patient with us, keeping at a pace that we were comfortable with and that also allowed us to take in the breathtaking scenery. He also gave me some great tips, which has really helped to improve my riding.
Jean-Philippe customised our itinerary precisely to what we wanted. He was also very flexible and accommodating — giving us a variety of options, depending on the weather or how we were feeling.
If, like me, you've read the many very positive posts on Jean-Philippe's site and wondered whether those people have been overly generous with their praise for his tours, I can tell you they are not.
In a nutshell: extremely professional, reliable, unique. Highly recommended would be an understatement.
