My wife and I had a great time riding again with the very professional and skilled Michael. Also had the very friendly Pierre safely guiding us all. This is truly the best of America bike tour. The tour delivered more than expected: Every National park we visited offered amazingly different landscapes. And the tour was well balanced in terms of time, distance and mix of winding roads and straight ones. We are very happy for having done it!
