Guest Reviews for this trip
Thomson Tours is the ultimate in VIP Spectator Experiences. Their guide, Jacinta, is so knowledgeable and super fun. She took 10 strangers and turned us into friends in a week - all while viewing the biggest cycling race of the year.
The trip to the Tour de France in the Alps in 2017 was one of the top 3 trips that i have taken. The organization was superb and the access to riders and teams was really good. Jacinta our guide made all this happen. We also had a fun time. We were the group that modeled the KISS band and were on the road side 2K from the summit of Galibier. What more can you ask for!
The trip exceeded all expectations. The group was outstanding, staff exceptional & the tour activities were exciting. I was exhilarated & exhausted at the end of most days. I loved how close we got to the cyclists, that Jacinta got us to our destinations ahead of crowds, seeing how the Tour works, being at mountain stages, being at the finish line & enjoying the VIP tents. I am now more than a bit spoiled. I have watched the Tour for more than 20 years & this trip was fabulous.
Jacinta was excellent in everything! She was fun and made the group bonded easily. We were 10 strangers and became friends within hours. Thanks to her for an enjoyable trip!
Thomson Spectator tours are amazing. They bring complete strangers together and make a crazy family together for a week or 10 days. Some of us remain friends for a long time after the Tour is over. Much attention is given to detail. TDF is a moving object many snap decisions need to be made to accommodate. Thomson does this well. Kudos.
Amazing! Could not have been better! Exceeded expectations!
From start to finish the trip was first class.Great group to travel with. Jacinta was unbelievable. She made the trip. Would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to view the tour. Our trip included the novice to a 75 year old that new all teams and riders.
As a Tour de France junkie, this trip let me actually feel the nature of the event. We got to experience the start, the finish, the mountains, the parade of advertisers prior to the riders, the Tour village and even got to meet some of our favorite announcers.
Seeing the TDF was a bucket list item for me and I can truly say I have ticket this off the list in style. The spectator trip was a well thought out and balanced trip that gave us a up front and personal taste of the most important aspects of the TDF. A sprint finish, meeting a team on a rest day, a mountain top finish, a start and the finale on the Champs Elysee on the finish line. Thank you Thomsons and very specifically Jacinta, our guide that went well above and beyond her duties and exceed all our expectations.
Great experience ever and great hostess, nice people
The trip was awesome. Every day exceeded my expectations. Getting in so close to all the action and the personalities brought a new dimension to the Tour De France. Watching it every year on TV will bring back many memories and appreciation for what is happening on the ground. Our tour guide, Jacinta’s passion was contagious and made every day a blast from departing the hotel after breakfast till arriving back many exciting hours later. We were so fortunate to have someone that made all the logistics work ensuring that we got the best experience possible. What seemed like an overkill on logistics and arrangements on day one quickly became a recipe for success ensuring we had front row seats at each vantage point. Thank you for a unforgettable experience Thomson Bike Tours and Jacinta.
I came with high expectations of the entire spectator experience and it was exceeded manyfold in many ways. Thank you!!!!
the whole experiance was fantastic made even more memorable by all the time and effort that Jacinta put in and not forgetting our driver geordia, they made an excellent team
Please feel free to do so. I have signed up for Spectator experience tours on F/b and Twitter, that should definitely help with your future bookings.
Fantastic! You really see how the tour works from the inside.
The spectator tour was fabulous!! Jacinta made sure that all our accommodations, meals and travel were first class. Every minute was packed with information and experiences. There is no other way to experience the Tour except as a VIP through Thomson Travel. I would definitely recommend the spectator tour to anyone wanting to have the trip of a lifetime. I hope to go on another tour soon!
This was so much better than I expected it to be and I had high hopes. Ha into, our guide, made this a standout adventure in a lifetime of great vacations.
Great experience provided by a great guide. Worth repeating and recommending.
Thompson’s TDF Spectators Tour was absolutely amazing from the first minute to the last! Truly a VIP experience! Loads of fun and extremely interesting! We’ve always been huge fans of the Tour de France but we now have an even greater respect for the riders, and the event itself. One that can’t be explained, it must be experienced. Our tour guide, Jacinta, spoiled us for all other tour guides - she’s beyond awesome and made the trip especially fun! It was a one-of-a-kind trip that we’ll never forget!
Fantastic! A trip the combines the excitement of watching TDF on site, opportunity of close look of behind scene events, stunning scenery, and gourmet food all together. A dream come true experience.
very good, worthwhile
Thomson Bike Tours provided us with a once in a lifetime experience that we could NEVER have recreated on our own. We just sat back and let our guide do all the work while we enjoyed being within inches of riders as they sped past us to the finish line. The accommodations were excellent, as were the food and wine. Everything really was spectacular and fun! We will definitely be back! Maybe to ride next time!
Excellent trip, I would recommend it to anyone. Jacinta is so helpful & makes sure everyone is having a great time. Seeing Froome running with his bike right in front of us, is something I will never forget.
Every possible need and concern was addressed. Our comfort and ease of moving around was aways of upmost importance and guaranteed- everything was first rate!!!
