Les & Pauls review

Dear Cris and Andy,Just wanted to thank you both again very muchly for organising such a memorable cycling holiday through the beautiful countryside of France. Paul and I had such a great time enjoying the scenery, the fine food,the beer, the local wine and of course your company as well

On Saturday in Toulouse we toured the Airbus A380 factory (this time in English) and visited the adjacent recently opened awesome Air Museum.
Not only that but next door is an open air display of vintage aircraft.A plane enthusiast's dream come true.
On Sunday we visited the Space Museum.Attractions we would heartily recommend.
In Bordeaux we also thoroughly enjoyed the open top city bus tour and the wonderful Cite du Vin.
