  • Very satisfied with the experience

    4 out of 5

  • Service rating : For the most part it was good but we would have to have received info on train travel to get from London to Strasbourg. The air travel was a disaster bec. we missed a connection. That meant a wait of 6 hr.
    Product : It was very good. But I think we should always have AC when we are paying extra for the Prestige tour.
    Plus the menu should always inc. a 2nd choice. Or at least a vegetarian choice.

    4 out of 5

  • Service rating : Efficient and very easy to deal with
    Product : Beautiful ride mostly on designated paths; excellent accomodation; organisation of tour went like clockwork. Highly recommended!
