Guest Reviews for this trip
Would have loved to purchase tompson shirt / polo. Lack of kit sizes also to purchase. Pre order options would have been great.
Well organized schedule that ran like clockwork Adaptive when things did not go as planned Humble and approachable Heaps of stories and they will tell you anything Would book with these guys again.
Do not take this trip lightly. It is very, very hard even if you are a great cyclist. However, you will get everything you’ve paid for out of it and more. I loved every sweaty mile of it.
My recommendation is to go onto the site and chose a trip that suits you. Just do it, you will have no regrets. The Thomson organisation is very professional, just do it!!
The Ruta Negra was the most challenging and rewarding 14 days of cycling. To ride and see all the iconic mountains in Italian cycling was just surreal and breathtaking. I am now full of cycling memories which will hopefully carry me through to my next Thomson tour. Riding at home will never be the same again !!
Excellent in all respects.
The Ruta Negra Italy included everything I could ask for in 14 days of cycling. Professional guides, challenging cycling and great accommodation. Thank you Thomson bike tours
(I leave this part for the bike riders.)
This was the most fun I have ever had on vacation. It was a tremendous amount of climbing but with the gearing and the fact that it was not a race made it difficult but doable, and not once did I doubt my ability to complete the trip or finish the climb. You do not need mountains at home to train for this trip. Make sure you are in good shape though!
Your tour represents great value for a bike tour. Some days were a little long for the older cyclist. Marc Prat was a standout ambassador for your company.
