Discover the delights of the French countryside along the same route as the Tour de France race participants, but at a much more human pace. (Try 86 miles over the course of a nine-day cycling holiday, instead of 115 miles a day.) Enjoy vineyards, cherry orchards, Gothic cathedrals, Renaissance squares, and charming villages.

The trip begins in Strasbourg, the capital of the Alsace region of northeastern France, continues to Germany, and then returns to France. The tour costs $1759-$1855 per person, until September 23.
