Catherine is Polish, as an Erasmus generation she travelled to France and studied at Business School in Chambery (French Alps). She caught the wine bug when living in Dijon, and graduated from Master of Wines.
She was working in marketing department of an advertising company in Nice when she felt that travelling by bike through the beautiful French regions and vineyards is the best way to explore a country, learn about wine, meet local people, and have the experience of a lifetime.
Favorite travel experiences have included Mont Blanc ascent and biking in South Tyrol in Italy with kids.
She considers that unplanned travel experiences are the best of all adventures.
On her bucket list: Nepal, North Pole Chile, and more realistic in close future – the Tour of Mont Blanc, trek that unwinds around the Mont Blanc massif, with kids (hopefully this summer!).
Before joining the ACTIVE TOURS team in 2015, most of 20’s travel experiences revolved discovering mostly France to meet the local, taste the food and the local wine. But also Irland, Italie, Spain, Morroco, Tunisia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos…
Being a bike guide for Active Tours allows Florian to combine his interest in travel with his passion for cycling, being outside, and meet people from different origins.
He caught the exploring bug early in life, thanks to his parents who very early initiated him in mountain experiences!
Florian’s latest trip was in Sardaigna.
Favorite travel experiences have included camping and biking along the Canal du midi with his kids during 1 week.
On his wish list of places to go you can find Patagonia.
He spends his free time cooking with his kids, playing music, having great time with his friends and planning the next fun skiing or mountain biking trip with the one who will follow him!
Born in Beaune, Guillaume likes sport and its region where he practices basketball and mountain biking. Since 2012, he is bike guide in the Burgundy vineyards, and really enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion of the region.
The essentials to spend good holidays? For Guillaume: the need to immerse oneself in the local culture, having good time and some physical exercise, of course.
