“What can I say other than the Monte Carlo or Bust tour was a fabulous success. Although there were only five guests, we had a fabulous time. The weather could have been kinder on the first day – the temperature was 4 deg C until about 2pm when it crept up to a balmy 6 deg C! The hotels we stayed at were all up to Bike Normandy’s high standard. We managed to get to the hotels at a reasonable time giving us time to chill out before our evening meal. We also managed to leave at the appointed time every morning, possibly a first for Bike Normandy! We even managed to ride the Route Napoléon in the dry, an experience not to be missed. Well done BN European Tours. A tour up to your usual high standards.”
Ken Cullern, 15th trip, Triumph Street Triple R, West Sussex

“Just like to say what a great tour this was, staying in lovely hotels, eating fine food and enjoying the company of new friends…. oh and the roads and routes were well chosen and just fab. The scenery was also breathtaking, particularly the views approaching and of the Tarn Gorge and Millau Bridge. The routes through Provance and the Ardeche were also fabulous with stunning views. How you manage to deliver great tours and 1st class service repeatedly time after time is beyond me…. whatever your secret, just keep doing it 😉👍. Look forward to seeing you both on the Swiss Alps Tour. Kind regards”
