Skite Book

The active gourmet travel has a trusty Skite Book of comments. Here are some of our favourites to whet your appetite for one of our adventures - you'll soon see many people come back for more...

"Active and gourmet are true descriptors - wonderful walks/bike rides thru' some of the most amazing sights (and sites!) Les Baux's chateau to the superb market in St Remy... and the opportunity to sample true French cuisine and wines... with like-minded souls. We thank you" - Liz Dawson & Colin Oldfield

To cycle through Brittany has been an experience of a lifetime. The weather has with small exceptions been superb - the coutntryside delightful and the cuisine, wine and companionship fantastic - Sharyn

"Coastal Normandy and Brittany are really exceptional. Normandy beaches, Bayeux, Mt St Michel, St Malo and Divian are sights to remember. Apparently mid June 1944 produced a storm of a lifetime, we must have pushed it quite close and managed to experience an outdoor rush across the Mt St Michel Bay as the storm came in. Fruits de Mer are rightly famous and we have sampled quite a lot. All in all a romantic interlude" - Colin

C'est Rochelle! Cycling through Brittany and Normandy has given me a lifetime of wonderful memories! Most "sobering time"? the 10,000 crosses on Normandy beach head at Omaha - Rochelle McLaren

"Great food, drink fun (despite cuts and bruises!). Further examples for us of French countryside - learnt more about the cuisine (Yes! Including the stay at Minerve!). Next time more experience please of the white water days out" - Tim & Collette Large

Thanks for a wonderful introduction to a Trapp Tour! Great company, great food and superb organisation. Can we come again? Phil & Di

"What an Escapade! Chere Gail - merci bien! This has been a very special trip and I've enjoyed it immensely. Toujours Provence - looking forward to the next visit. Bises" - Collette

Another great trip - many thanks for the carefully selected experiences which have enriched our lives - indebted! - Roger & Tina Fisher

"Many thanks for another wonderful trip. Each one seems to build on the previous. We have loved the company and the experience" - Brian & Christine

Thank you for your patience and caring and teaching me a new skill - cycling. I really enjoyed the food and was inspired by Kent. What a great experience and one of my childhood dreams has come to be - The Aussie Jenny

"Thank you for organising an amazing honeymoon for us. We have seen and done so many things in such a short time and have enjoyed every minute. The expectation bar has now been raised for us from the fantastic standard and range of accommodation we've stayed in. The itinerary was superbly detailed, we just had the right amount of time in each place with lots of good suggestions of things to do. What a way to start our married life! Thank you so much" - Lucy & Mike Chettleburgh

The combination of food and exercise is a real winner. Hard not to enjoy yourself with such an excellent group of people. Wow factors included wine tasting in Saumur, gypsy night, Wyn's luncheon, candlelit dinners in the Loire and cycling from Le Baux to St Remy. See you on the Rail Trail! Tres bien. Lisa & Colin Strang

"Many highlights on this trip but I was amazed at the professional excellence of the world's perfect hosts. Thierry and Yolane at the Chateau Verriere in Saumur. They were par excellence! Magnifique and tres bon! I discovered personally that cycling can be fun so we will be back again to give it another go. All the crew were great" - Steve & Pam Clews

You really have something special here!! We have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the sojourn through Provence - the food, accommodation, wine and company - Many thanks Frank Solway

"Had a wonderful time - thinking about sending an outline of the "happenings" on our trip to Hollywood so they can make a movie. Thank you so much for such a great experience" - Sue Spurway
