Colombia Cycling Camp
Absolutely loved riding in Colombia with TBT. Incredible country with good roads, tons of bikers, incredible scenery, and endless climbs. Ride leaders, logistical support, and the Thompson experience from start to finish was flawless. I will be back for as many trips as my legs will allow!

The Gran Canaria trip was some of the most beautiful yet difficult climbs and descents I have ever experienced. Every route was a unique experience offering endless breathtaking views. The Thomson team does a wonderful job with preparation and support and the food (both in hotel and support) was top notch!

Spring Classics
Being cold and wet makes this one of the great cycling experiences of a lifetime. The trip where you want it to be "stay in your hotel" weather. It's the Classics! Up close with the riders on the Paterberg, in the infield at the Roubaix Velodrome, and challenging yourself to sprint to the corner to start a cobbled climb.... the spring classics are the real deal and the measure of every cyclist. Thomson makes them come alive with their access, planning, and support. A trip like no other and a must do for every cyclist!

I could not have imagined just how care free a trip could be. Thomson did it all for me. Race registrations, packet pick ups, transport, race viewing passes, food and nutrition while riding, AND the guides were at the front of the group taking all the wi d everyday and making sure to get some glamour shots of us riding as well. Then, while we were tired out and getting ready for dinner, the tireless crew cleaned and maintained the bikes for the next day. Chapeau!

Such an iconic experience for the Spring Classics. Having viewed and admired these events from afar for my entire cycling life to riding and experiencing them in VIP fashion will be forever remembered. The ease by which such a challenging experience was delivered is a testament to the professionalism of the entire team, from Thomson to the attendees themselves. Great people, great attitudes, great riding, and a true bucket list item achieved. As the Thomson motto suggests, "Let's go again!"

An enormous amount of fun. And grinding hard work, too. Non-Europeans will learn a lot about the different skills needed to do well on European roads, climbs, and descents. And cycling in the Pyrenees is a combination of beautiful, challenging, and ... developmental. My climbing speeds have improved as a consequence because (I think) one finds new thresholds, encouragement from the team, and just watching some of the leaders as they dance up a 11% gradient. It's inspiring. Peter Thomson runs a great operation and he's assembled a first-rate team. There's a positive attitude throughout and never a moment when ...

My trip was not great due to me getting some sort of a flu bug or Giardia which greatly impacted my riding. I was unable to eat during the rides and was very weak, I had to sit out some of the riding which was very hard for me but necessary. The people on the trip were all super fun and easy to get along with. The staff was superb, they obviously all love their jobs and did everything they could to make our experience great. Sardinia was an amazing destination, I would go back there again in a second. ...

Sardinia was a truly an epic adventure in every sense of the way. The roads with little to no traffic. Fantastic climbs and descents. Visually stunning mountains to ride up and over and through.

EPIC Trans Pyrenees
The Epic Trans-Pyrenees is precisely what I want from a guided overseas cycling trip. As someone living in the United States, making the trek across the Atlantic is not something I can do more than once or twice a year, and when doing so I want to be able to focus on what I love: riding up epic Cols! Testing myself on some of the legendary TDF climbs is a dream come true, a dream made logistically simple and stress-free by this guided itinerary. The atmosphere created by the staff on this trip was truly wonderful!

While the climbs are less intense the the classic mountain ranges of Europe the overall distance and cumulative climbing is challenging and there are some epic days like Torre. The roads are quiet and nearly car free. The Thomson team, as always, is the highlight of the trip. They’re extremely attentive to the needs of the riders on the road and for meals. They also engage well with the guests and are entertaining to be around. I strongly recommend this trip for those who want to see a beautiful part ...

Portugal is a magical place for cycling with great tarmac, steep climbs, sweeping descents, and fantastic food. The hotels include converted monasteries where your prayers for good food, wine, and strong legs are answered. The Thomson staff deliver an unforgettable cycling experience in roads even the locals can’t find.

I have been on so many Thompson Trips that I have lost count. Consistently, the staff are bright, fun, responsible, and knowledgeable. When unexpected events occur (which of course always happens to some extent), they are calm and flexible. They also make a great effort to interact individually with the riders. This is a real differentiator, as it would be so much easier for them to just "go through the motions." And this transforms the experience for the riders. Llibert and Clara were among the best ride leaders/staff that I have met at Thompson and were wonderful to spend time ...

"Epic" is overused in today's sporting world - does it mean unique, challenging, memorable, or unmatched in beauty or experience? When I read of Thomson's "Epic Trans Pyrenees" with its 17 categorized climbs, I was convinced it was a worthy trip to celebrate my retirement (just 10 days earlier) after 40 years of professional work. All of my expectations were exceeded in this "epic" ride! Once again (it was my 2nd Thomson trip), the staff made the biggest difference!
