“Having never really cycled before, the challenge of cycling from London to Paris was HUGE. However, both Jason and Paul did an amazing job in supporting the team of mixed abilities and experience through the 3 day tour. Extremely professional, and a very well organised itinerary. I would seriously recommend ECT for anyone looking for a great adventure with the security of knowing it’ll be well planned and catered for. I’m looking forward to booking my next trip with these guys. Thanks again for all your support, knowledge (and patience)!!! “ – Bryony Harrison-Croft 2018
