Tour de France Tour operators

Postby martc101 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 10:26 pm

Hi, I am investigating possible tour companies for a package tour of the Alps stages of next year’s le Tour.
I have received the information for Healthwise active http://hwactivetravel.com/events/cyclin ... vence-alps
Thomson’s http://www.thomsonbiketours.com/trips/T ... cling.html and
Peloton tours http://www.pelotoncyclingtours.com/index.php?page_id=37
and wondered if anyone has had experience of touring with any of these operators.
I was also looking at some of the local French companies:
Cyclomundo http://www.cyclomundo.com/alps_gfy.html and
Discover France http://tour-de-france-tours.com/
and wondered if anyone has had an experience of using French based operators for the Tour.
Welcome any reviews or suggestions
Cheers.

I just did a tour through the French Alps with Thomson, would recommend them without hesitation. Ran a fantastic tour.

Edit: it wasnt a tdf tour though.

I've just signed up with Thomson's bike tours for next year. Doing both their Pyrenees & Alps Tours. Lucky I have 8 months to get fit!
