About
Since 1973, the Marais Poitevin has been discovered by means of a boat and a boatman equipped with a pigouille. Without removing the traditional side, I created our company in 2017 in order to offer a new activity in the Marais Poitevin, its discovery by bike. Even today in 2023, I remain the only bike guide to offer these off-the-beaten-track outings, accessible to everyone. During this getaway, we will make different discovery stages around the history of the construction of the second largest marsh in France, its fauna, its flora and its heritage.

      Bike tour of La Presqu’ile
      Nice tour along the littoral in a beautiful scenery. Damien is so knowledgeable about his country’s history and geography you sense he cares heartfully and passionately about its environment. The visit at the oyster farm is a must. Too bad we did not stay long enough to go for the day tour… hopefully next time with pleasure. The whole family enjoyed it very much. I encourage and recommend this super way of discovering the country and its diversity and richness. Thank you Damien

    Bonjour Gérard, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accompagner lors de l'Escapade vélo de la Venise Verte.

    Great orienteering on the occasion of a day of team cohesion. The search for places to photograph, the visit to the Brewery, the meal and the return trip won over all collaborators. Thanks again Damien!

    Bonjour Camille, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir d'essayer cette nouveauté 2024 avec vous avec cette course d'orientation avec 4 équipes, 4 parcours et 4 photos différentes à faire par équipe. Original Vélo Tour accompagne les entreprises depuis des années autour d'énigmes, de jeux, de rallyes vélo et bien d'autres. Je suis heureux que vous ayez passé un agréable moment. Pour preuve, la danse de la brioche pendant le pique nique a montré la bonne ambiance du groupe. Au plaisir de vous revoir peut être lors d'une sortie à titre individuel. Damien d'Original Vélo Tour

    Bonjour Guillaume, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir lors de cette Escapade vélo de la Venise Verte autour du village du Mazeau. Etre loin des grands flux permet d'écouter les oiseaux et de les voir de près comme les cigognes blanches que vous avez pu prendre en photos. Cette sortie est vraiment agréable et en grande partie abritée du soleil, ce qui permet de garder une certaine fraicheur. Je suis heureux que vous soyez parti avec une nouvelle connaissance du Marais poitevin, ayant passé une partie de votre enfance du côté de Luçon. Au plaisir d'une prochaine sortie avec Original Vélo Tour, Damien d'Original Vélo Tour

    Very pleasant stroll without difficulty along the canals and the Sèvre Niortaise. The friendly guide taught us lots of things about the past and present of this atypical region. and to charm us, pretty little “maraichine” cows, oxpeckers, and a large bird that we usually see in another region of France. The place is off the beaten track and worth the detour.

    Bonjour Isabelle, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accompagner lors de l'Escapade vélo de la Venise Verte. Vous avez profité d'un moment où tout le monde repartait après un grand pont de l'Ascension. Vous aviez donc le Marais poitevin rien qu'à vous et vous avez pu profiter du silence pour écouter les oiseaux, dont ce grand oiseau noir et blanc. Je suis heureux que vous ayez passé un moment hors du temps, Au plaisir, Damien d'Original Vélo Tour

    Bonjour Valérie, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accompagner lors de l'Escapade vélo de la Venise verte. Nous étions un bon petit groupe d'une douzaine de personnes à la découverte d'une Nature préservée des grands flux touristiques. Maintenant, vous connaissez les secrets du Marais poitevin et vous avez même vu de jolies cigognes. Au plaisir, Damien d'Original Vélo Tour

    Bonjour Marie, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accompagner lors de l'Escapade vélo de la Venise Verte en famille. Nantes n'étant pas loin, vous êtes venus en excursion pour découvrir un lieu proche mais pourtant inconnu. Vous avez donc découvert un lieu unique et accessible en peu de temps. Au plaisir de vous retrouver lors d'une prochaine venue, pourquoi pas sur ma sortie cyclo oenotouristique dans les coteaux de Pissotte, Damien d'Original Vélo Tour

    Bonjour Elise, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous recevoir sur l'Escapade vélo de la Venise Verte, au coeur d'un Marais Poitevin au calme. Venir découvrir le marais un dimanche matin d'octobre, c'est profiter d'un moment reposant, au calme, sans personne à croiser à la découverte de chevreuils, d'oiseaux, de paysages préservés. Au plaisir de vous retrouver lors d'un prochain séjour, Damien d'Original Vélo Tour

    Bonjour Philippe, Merci pour votre avis. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir avec votre groupe de 19 personnes autour de l'Escapade vélo de la Venise Verte. En cette fin de journée, vous avez choisi l'option apéritif après la sortie vélo. Il était donc important de vous proposer des produits locaux comme : - le Kiki vendéen de Vix, - le jus de pommes de Ferrières avec sirop d'Angélique, - et dégustation d'Angélique confite de Niort. Ainsi, vous avez découvert un autre visage du Sud Vendée. Au plaisir d'une prochaine fois, Damien d'Original Vélo Tour
