What our guests say...

This is my fourth Thomson trip and I can't wait for the next one. Somehow when I think nothing could get better on a trip, the next journey outdoes the last. Peter has perfected logistics - even in the most difficult of destinations - and builds capable, kind and enthusiastic teams to support riders of all capabilities. The routes are always carefully curated and thoughtful; tough and beautiful. Thank you!

TBT demonstrated once again why they are the industry leader in performance cycling vacations. This was my 7th trip and the planning & execution of every detail remains top-notch. Thank you Peter and your staff for a very memorable and rewarding experience. See you in 2015!

My first trip with Thomson, not my last! It was fantastic. There is no substitute for passion and excellence, and I found both in abundance when dealing with everyone from Thomson during my spectacular week in the Pyrenees. The trip exceeded my expectations, from start to finish. I want more!

The Trans Cantabria challenge was an outstanding trip. The scenery, routes, rides support, hotels, and food were absolutely superb. The Angliru is beyond comparison. For more than a decade, I have ridden with Thomson and each trip has been consistently top notch. These trips are amazing!

Jim Cracraft – MA, USA
2014 Trans-Cantabria Challenge

 

I have been on some great trips--this was certainly the best trip in 10 years! Great mix of biking and tour viewing and incredible VIP access to the start, end and during different stages. Way, way beyond expectation. A live band on Hautacam, really? Just incredible!

2014 TDF VIP Pyrenees

 

I cannot say enough about Thompson Bike Tours.We did the Spectator trip and every moment was exciting. Staff, especially Jacinta and Jordi made the whole experience more than memorable. It truly was an "experience", not a tour.
