It is an ideal setting to get to know each other better, to learn about each other and to strengthen ties and bonds. We can help each other; show our commitment, our tenacity.

Great organisation for our seminar in Bordeaux at the end of June. Comfortable bike ride through vineyards (bike, electric or not depending on individual preference. We had lunch by the banks of the river Gironde and in the afternoon a visit to a Chateau.

The following day an extremely interesting guided tour of Bordeaux. Team building of a kind we will not forget. We won’t hesitate to contact Thibault if ever we need a package of this type again. To repeat – many thanks for everything.

Feedback:

We were looking for an original package for a two-day seminar located within the wider Paris region including some time dedicated to a bike ride. ‘Evasion à Velo’ [EAV] offered us two programmes and one of them suited us perfectly. EAV, through direct talks on the telephone understood our wishes completely along with budget restrictions and as a consequence, saving us a considerable amount of time. (It’s surprising how organising an event, even as simple as this one, can be so time-consuming.) EAV offered us a choice of options, and then provided exactly as promised on the one we chose. Therefore, EAV, is to be recommended!

Feedback:

We were a small group of seven people and decided to have a three-day excursion together in the Drôme Provençale region to reinforce the relationships within the group. Everything was organised by Thibaut, who also accompanied us. He was very attentive to our wishes and succeeded in finding activities that pleased everyone. A visit of discovery in this beautiful region including superb small restaurants, a trip on pedal scooters with a visit to a vineyard and an agreeable day spent cycling with a massage in fields of lavender….and a hot air balloon early one morning over a magical landscape. It was wonderful!
