What our guests say...

Incredible and challenging riding, fantastic experience watching the Tour live, fun and attentive staff, and superbly organized all underscore why Thomson is simply the best out there!

Bo Norris - ME, USA
2013 Tour de France Pyrenees


Excellent trip!! The rides were challenging and the race viewing was outstanding. The logistics for putting this trip together were mind boggling, I am sure, but the results were magnificent. Great job! Great riding experience! Great race viewing! Trip of a lifetime!

Michael Marquardt – TX, USA
2013 Tour de France Alps

 

Another magical experience with Thomson! This was my 4th trip, and it certainly didn't disappoint. Great routes, fabulous hotels, fantastic food, and a fun bunch of fellow riders - but it's the support staff who really make the trip. When the weather turns bad (which it did for a few days) the support crew make all the difference; Glynis was our guardian angel on the Grossglockner!

Belinda Ward – Australia
2013 Trans-Austrian Alps

 

This was an exceptional experience and one which will live long in my memories. Well looked after by Thomson team and we got access to places and people that most mere mortals can only dream about!! Will be back to experience this again!
