Clients feedback

retour-moto-corse Patrice et Catherine 05 July 2011

Here are our impressions of our trip "Tour de Corse motorcycle" from July 4 to 14.

Routes were perfect, the roads very well adapted to motorcycle drive, with stunning scenery, impeccable timing, leaving us time for visits.

The accommodations were great with a plus for Porto with swimming pool (after a day of bike it's very nice), a very large room with balcony and garden. A little less for the hotel in Corte (outdated room). Employers to Burgo super nice (aperitif and digestif offered), excellent and abundant food!

In conclusion, we are very, very pleased with your services, all met our expectations and we will certainly recommend you to our many biker friends.
