” Biking through Normandy ”
Hugo took us on an amazing bike journey through Normandy. For three days he lead us on a bike trip through incredible back roads of the Normandy countryside seeing all the important historic WWII sites and more. In addition to the "standard tourist" sites, Hugo took us to many places that were off the beaten path to give us a unique perspective of both History and the French countryside. He worked with our local bike shop to get all our measurements so when we arrived in France the bikes he provided were perfect.
Hugo's knowledge and professionalism was outstanding. Truly a once in a lifetime experience. Thanks Hugo

”Cycling Paris - Le Mont Saint Michel”
Hugo was an excellent host and we couldn’t have asked for better. We part cycled and part drove from Paris to Le Mont St Michel and Hugo always made sure we were comfortable. He also made loading and offloading our five bikes look effortless. Laid back, great sense of humour and pleasure to chat to. 100 per cent recommend!

3 Days in Normandy
Hugo was a terrific host for our 3 day bike tour of the Normandy beaches. He had all the knowledge of a native of Bayeau. We gave him ideas of an itinerary and planned an experience that was much more than we expected. He gave us a through explanation of the D-Day invasion and guarded our bikes as we tours multiple musuems. He also went above the expected to help us find landmarks of our family relatives involved with the D-Day invasion. The bike rides through the backcountry were beautiful. It would have been a mistake to attempt to tour the area on our own. Hugo also picked us up and returned us to the Paris airport which made that part of the trip a breeze.

An amazing bike tour of Normandy
This tour was the best activity that we undertook while on holiday in France. Hugo was an excellent guide, giving history and anecdotes about the area of Bayeux, Normandy and D-Day landing sites. The bikes were very easy to ride, an initial concern as I had not ridden a bike since being 17 years old, and Hugo was very well prepared for the trip, having a snack, water, and safety gear ready for our day. He stopped for us to take pictures and rode at our pace, checking regularly to ensure that we were ok with the ride. We highly recommend this tour, and will do it again on our return to France.

Hugo took us on a terrific bike trip to Omaha beach and the american cemetery - not only a great bicycle tour on its own, accompanied by deep knowledge about the region, the history, and the events that really made the experience come to life. We loved it so much that we are planning to return with our kids for this unforgettable experience. Un grand merci Hugo! Linda & Paolo

“Best way to learn about Normandy, D-Day and Bayeux”
We took a break from Paris to get a taste of the Normandy countryside -BEST DECISION EVER- and found petite Reine shortly after arriving in Bayeux...Our guide Hugo was fantastic and passionate about the region and history -
Although we biked 45k in one day-with the e bikes assisting with hills it felt like nothing difficult at all.
We cannot say enough wonderful things -just consider how absolutely boring and tiring it is to be on a bus or can-when you can feel the breeze and smell the flowers and fields while to travel to alternating and surprising points of interest.
My only regret was to not have known to buy/bring flowers to the American cemetery-while we did I not lose family there it would have been a comfort to leave a respectful bouquet.

“Bike tour of Normandy D-Day Beaches”
Hugo with Petite Reine was our tour guide for the full day bike tour from Bayeux to the Normandy beaches and back. Thiis was a great way to experience the Normandy countryside and to see things and sites that probably would not be included on bus tours. The bikes were new and power assist, which made easy work of the 50 miles covered. Big hill, no problem, just turn up to "turbo"! Hugo had an iPad with historic WWII photos, and sometimes we would stop at that very place they were shot to compare. Some of the bunkers that we got to see were off the tourist paths, found down little dead end roads. Plenty of time was allotted for the beautiful memorial at Omaha Beach.
It should be said that we are avid cyclists in our fifties who are used to several hours of riding. I would say you should be in at least average shape to attempt this tour.

“Charming & interesting”
A very nice way to discover charming Normandy roads biking far from touristic areas. We started from Bayeux to Omaha beach with 4 kids. Electric bikes make it easy and fun. Good explanations along the road up to US veteran cemetery. A symbol for us as a French family accompanied by a young American girl. France is the oldest ally of the United States and in this place you understand what does it mean !
