Classic Adventures Testimonials
I came on this trip because Paul (spouse) wanted me to. I ended up having a wonderful time, thanks to your nice routes, but especially Benton, Sarah, & Vander. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and have fun. We really enjoyed our lodging, and the restaurants. All was fantastic!
Tour was great! Well selected routes and bike paths. Great support. Benton & Sarah are fun, supportive, and knowledgeable. The Chateau Frontenac was an outstanding experience.
Dinner at Dale & Dianne's house was awesome. This added to the intimacy of the trip which I think is Classic Adventures' distinguishing point. ..so was having the Hart kids cycling with us on one day.
Enjoyed the personal touch of going to leaders' home for wine and cheese. It was a good thing we had a light lunch, the amount of food was just right!
Lots of "goods" to thank you for - good biking, good scenery, good food, good group of guests, and especially good guides! Thank you for organizing and leading another terrific Classic Adventure. See you on another one for sure. In the meantime all the best to you and your family.
This was our third tour with Classic Adventures. It couldn't have gone better. Great leaders & support who had great knowledge of the area. Benton, Sarah, & Vander made us feel a part of the family!
Thank you Sarah & Benton for yet again a wonderful adventure. We so appreciate your commitment and friendship.
We really enjoyed the family feel of this trip. Thank you again for opening your home to us and for the cocktails, and the chance to meet your parents and children.
I especially liked riding through rural Quebec and the small towns. Sarah & Benton were perfect guides and made dinners fun.
I liked that each day's cycling was "cycle at your own pace." The dinners and breakfasts were terrific. The select group dinners gave the tour a nice social aspect.
Thank you for such a satisfying and enjoyable vacation! It exceeded all of my expectations, and was worth every cent! It could not have gone better for me. You will see me on a future trip.
