Private Trips offer you the opportunity to create your very own trip, all you need is at least six people.
The only rules to creating a Private Trip is that there are pretty much no rules. You can convert any of our scheduled departures into your own, suggest your own destination or multiple destinations. You can even mix road and gravel! We will then help you craft the details – difficulty level, distance, budget level. Everything.
Whether you want to ride for 50km or 200km, if you want 5 star luxury hotels or simply the best routes for less. All we ask is that you are a group of at least six people. Simple!
Private Trips are truly a blank canvas, they can be whatever you want them to be. Maybe you have something in mind already or have half an idea that just needs the detail added.
The trip can be any length, feature road, gravel or both and be as hard or easy as you want. We're here to help, just get in touch with our expert team with a few simple details and we can take it from there.

Maybe you already like one our existing trips, but you just want to ride with your friends or club. You can make any existing trip private, you can join two together, make it harder, shorter, higher... whatever you want!

I have just finished my first dedicated supported bicycle trip. Thomson Tours provided the ultimate support. We had small manageable groups, each supported by a support van and a guide. Everyone of the crew was an accomplished cyclist and they knew when to teach and when to leave us to the climb, which was of course frequent. Although the rides were planned and ridden in advance, they were also amenable to ideas and equanimous under pressure. The food and accommodations were five star, knowing just what to provide and when. The rental Canyon bikes were excellent especially with the electronic ...

Trip leaders with some encouragement arranged alternative last dayriding into Siena along Strada Bianche race route. Then we had lunch in Campo plaza in Siena. That ride was amazing: road, gravel, Siena views then 20% climb into Campo. We appreciate the extra effort to allow for world class finish to trip

This was an outstanding trip. Radda was a great choice of a location as it is small, intimate and picturesque yet had shops, restaurants etc. The hotel was first class, great location and clean. The dining setting was sublime with its view of the valley and outdoor atmosphere. Food great, meals took a while but I understand, it's Italy! The riding was fantastic, great roads, minimal traffic and quite challenging terrain. I underestimated it a bit as there were no huge climbs but the continuous nature of the up and down was quite a workout. And of course the scenery ...
