" Allan did a great job with the tour. The routes were really nice....stayed mostly on the wonderful small 'white' roads on the Michelin maps. Hotels and food were just perfect too. He picked an awesome new town to stay in on the Mediterranean...what a highlight! And having van support throughout the day was an added bonus...never been on a tour that had everything you needed pretty much at your fingertips all day long."   Jennie Phillips (completed the Trip in 2007)
