|Here's what some of our recent guests had to say. To get in on the fun call
1-877-362-0045. We'll be happy to answer all your questions.
Thank you for the best vacation I have had. I have already told many of my friends in DC about your
company and so I hope you will get some new clients. Someone (can’t remember whom) said toward the end
of the trip that it will be really hard to tell our friends about it. That is true. You can’t get the whole picture –
but I have given it a pretty good try! Please count us in FOR SURE for the Loire Valley next August. You
really worked hard and we just benefited from all the planning, the fun and the organization. I really can’t
say enough great things about the whole trip.
Stupendous trip. The camaraderie was super. The combination of hotels, sightseeing visits, and bike
routes fit together amazingly well.
Trip was awesome- so glad we did it
Personal touch unsurpassed.
Can't beat the price for value
Can't beat the management team!
Bill and Beth Foster
We loved the bike trip.
Joe and Carol Dowley
The Ballenbergers and the tour group were so great that it really made for a memorable experience.
Loved the history and beauty of Normandy. The trip exceeded our expectations, which were
already high! Thank you so much. You guys are cool and very flexible. You always make it a great
John and Dottie Rountree
We had such a great time with everyone- another trip is very inviting
Overall evalutation- “beyond great”. This trip far exceeded our expectations. You guys did a super job
organizing and conducting the Normandy tour.
I had a great time and enjoyed meeting you all.
this is a tribute to the incredible job you all did in Normandy and we can't wait for the next one
It is hard to believe that it has been a month since we returned from such a wonderful vacation in France.
Thanks for such a great time, very enjoyable fellowship, and wonderful memories.
Hope we can stay in touch
Steve and Cindy Guthrie
We really enjoyed the time spent getting to know the three of you, and we thank-you for all the hard work
you did before, during, and after our vacation to make it all happen. A quote from Patty when walking back to
the van after watching George win the Pla d'Adet stage at the bar: "This is the coolest thing we have
Walt, Linda, and Jay, It was a fabulous time and as memorable as the first trip.
It was so great getting to know everyone and share in such a cool event. Thanks again to
everyone for so much fun!
We met in DC yesterday and continuously talked about the trip. Can't wait for the next one.
Corrine and Dave Hofstetter
Thanks for some great memories Walt.
Thanks and kudos to the Ballenbergers for doing such a superb job of making us "real" bikers in doing so
in such an enjoyable fashion. I know Jay was secretly glad to see us ride off on the TGV (those bag drops!),
but he and his Mom and Dad made the experience (our first) something we won't ever forget. It was many
laughs, great meals, emotional at times, and above all, so much fun.
Joe and Carol Dowley
-we had such a great time with y'all -
never forget -
"I am listening to the sound tract from 'Chocolat' and dreaming of Beynac and foie gras! Lovely memories
from a perfect trip. I can't wait for the next one."
"Beaux Voyages far exceeded our expectations in giving us an experience we will never forget. We
truly enjoyed the warm friendly atmosphere of the Beaux Voyages' personnel and the staff at all three
wonderful Chateaux hotels. Biking through the French countryside was breathtaking and the mixture of
riding, sightseeing, canoeing, shopping and relaxing was perfect. We highly recommend this trip to anyone
looking for the "Perfect Vacation".
"The trip was exceptional, one which we will remember fondly for a long time to come."
Chuck and Jane
The small size of your tour (10 people) made for flexibility in terms of the itinerary and an intimate
group with which to share the experience of the TdF.
"Phenomenal hosts who we enjoyed traveling with. Informative and fun. Balanced recreation with exercise
with premium meals and lodging. Perfect! Though we lived in France for two years, we had never
experienced it like this. Very grateful for the experience."
Jeff and Deb
"The Ballenberger family is the best! Good people, great planning and tons of fun!"
"I could not have had a better time than I did on this trip. I appreciated your flexibility and the variety of
things we did. From the caves, to the charming medieval villages, to the cuisine, all was a perfect mix." Holly
"As professional as any guides we've ever had- but more fun!" Karen and Al
"We have lived and traveled extensively in Europe and have never experienced such an enjoyable
vacation there. The Ballenberger family planned and executed a superb itinerary, always with an eye toward
adjustments that would add both flexibility and enhancements based on the personal preferences of their
clients. We are already making plans for our next visit to France with Beaux Voyages."
