Any experience with Great Explorations?

I am considering a 2006 Tour de France trip with Great Explorations (based in Vancouver B.C.). The information on their website is impressive, leading me to believe that it is an experienced and well-organized outfit that provides quality support. Has anyone done a tour with this group? If so, any opinions/impressions about your experience with this company would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

No experience touring with them, but I spent a day in a hostel in Ireland and on a flight home from there with the owner in 2003. He had just led a week tour in western Ireland. He is genuinely nice guy and very experienced, having trained for a long time with one of the large tour companies before starting Great Explorations. Based on that experience, I think they are likely a very accomodating tour company.
