Seeking an organized European Bike Tour

Hi All,
My BF and I would like to do a week long bike tour in July of this year. We were thinking France around TdF time and we were looking to do about 30-60 miles a day, maybe catch a tour stage. We were also looking for something all inclusive that included hotel and bike rental. We've never done anything like this so we're kinda not sure where to look for more info on how to find a good tour. We looked at Trek tours and though it seemed nice, it also seemed pretty expensive.

Any suggestions or a link to a good related thread would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!!

Please take a look at https://www.agile-compass.com/le_tour.html for a 1-week TdF special in the Pyrenees July 20-27. It's supported, includes hotel, breakfast plus 1 major meal daily, 2 stage climbs, 1 stage start, plus Col du Tourmalet (not in the Tour this year). Bikes are not included but we can probably rent them locally and pass the rental cost through to you (200-300 Euro/week). Price is $2,400/person.

My wife and I are doing a tour in the Fall. It's fully supported and rated very easy. It's her first tour and the reason we chose this outfit. We are going with Vermont Bike Tours
