Especially for the TdF where access and logistics are so critical to a wonderful experience.
The value you will receive in meals, lodging, equipment, support wagons, events, organization, world class service provided by world class guides will be more than twice what you will spend and will be hard to match anywhere. I am so grateful to all of you at Trek Travel for the privilege of going on this dream trip with the dream team guides that saying thank you feels inadequate.
We still talk about is all the time. Getting to see the race and racers up close, and getting to ride their routes was something I never thought possible. And having everything taken care of - all we had to do was show up. That was incredible.
but usually those trips don’t involve the kind of logistical uncertainty brought about by the fickle Tour logistics the ASO throws at you. From a client’s perspective, the team kept any of the hassles with which they were dealing logistically totally invisible and always gave a client facing image of calm, fun, and helpfulness.
As a veteran of (many other companies trips), I think I am qualified to make an unbiased, objective evaluation. The real distinction was the guides. Individually and collectively, (they) are just very special people.
