What our guests say...

 

Once again Peter & his team have had all the aces up their sleeves - brilliant rides, brilliant ride leaders & brilliant viewing points - this is my second time & already planning the Giro with Thomson Tours


Stuart Faulkner – Australia
2012 Tour de France Pyrenees

Overall was a fantastic experience. Getting 1 week to ride in the Pyrenees during the TDF was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and Thomson didn't dissapoint. Very well organised logistics, fun and very friendly staff. I've already started negotiations with my family for another trip.


Mike Haig – AB, Canada
2012 Tour de France Pyrenees

Thomson Bike Tours is the best in the business. The Extreme Alps Trip was the most fun I've had on the bike in 20 years of cycling. The routes are full of amazing views and the staff is top notch. I've already put a deposit down on next years trip and will be bringing more people with me. I can't wait for our next adventure!


Matt Tanner - IN, USA
2012 Tour de France Alps

A sensational trip that has given me lifetime memories. I was impressed at every level, especially the professionalism displayed by all the Thomson crew. I could not recommend it higher for the rider that likes a challenge!
