Let me start at the very beginning …. From my very first encounter with Deaton via email and by phone I instantly knew that this would not be your average bike tour, and I also knew there would be lots of laughter, local knowledge gained & amazing attention to detail. Deaton is someone who is passionate about her business, her city, biking & most importantly … People!! Nothing was too much trouble & she asked lots of questions to make sure that our day was amazing & just perfect for us …. and it was!! My girlfriend & I had a blast and were made to feel right at home in Austin because of the huge Texas welcome given to us by Deaton & Victor (the newest member of the TBT team). The scenery and ride were beautiful, the food stops along the way met by a personal chef were so delicious & refreshing and our fellow bikers a joy to be with. Not only did we have a wonderful experience …. the best part is – we have made a friend for life!! I love this lady and the service she provides is one every tour company should model.
