Guest Reviews for this trip
Fantastic trip. Great staff and support. Amazing location.
I had a fantastic trip. We are already planning out next holiday.
The Trans Dolomites trip was a truly amazing experience. The rides are stunning and provide a real challenge. Our trip was limited a little bit by closure of some of the high passes (Stelvio and Gavia) though thankfully we had perfect weather all week which certainly made up for that. The support provided by Thomson was impeccable and our guides were great company. The accommodation was superb and the food was tasty and plentiful. I can not recommend this trip highly enough.
So impressed with every aspect of this trip, from the stunning route planning, to the professional level of support, and the well-presented and thorough daily briefings. Staff all had great personalities, and Juan knows how to take advantage of each of their strengths, offering such an amazing riding riding experience.
I didn’t quite know what to expect but the trip really exceeded all my expectations. The rides were phenomenal and the service/staff were excellent. I don’t think route planning could have been done any better. The staff was knowledgable, helpful and most importantly interesting to ride/converse with. We had some weather (heat) related issues and they handled the situation very professionally. I had a fantastic time, thanks for everything.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Trans Dolomite’s Tour. It was a well coordinated trip to ensure the epic climbs were accomplished, customers were challenged while simultaneously taken care of. The evening pre-ride briefs were professionally done, the rides started on time, and it was a well organized trip. I’ll be back for another Thomson Tour in 2020!
This was a truly challenging ride, physically and mentally, which I am so glad to have embarked on. Your wonderful staff, the hotels, food and terrain were exemplary. Highly recommended.
Another in a series of absolutely outstanding Thomson trips. Also, I brought two friends with me this year. They described the trip as exceeding all of their expectations.
Thanks Thomson for delivering a truly bucket-list experience! The riding was iconic; the staff was superb and I am already eagerly looking forward to my next Thomson trip.
The riding was excellent! The food at dinner and breakfast was great. We never had a bad meal. Having done Trek and now Thompson tours, the level of service at Thompson is a step down from Trek and spotty depending on which member of the staff was driving and riding with you. The best service was provided by Rob (driver) and Oriol (ride leader). It was clear that they knew what they were doing and cared about their customers. We were split into three groups—A, B & C. The A group consisted of one rider the whole week. I don’t think that was fair to the rest of us. He got a private guide service, and we paid for it.
I was blown away by the experience. It truly could not have been better. The rides were epic and your staff made it possible. they made a difficult task (herding cats) seem very easy. They were friendly, helpful and encouraging. The food and accommodation was top quality and you obviously pick who can come on your trips very carefully, everyone was brilliant. I told Rob he needed to have a coffee making machine in his van!!
I was the sole member of the A group on all the rides. As a result, I had a different experience than the rest of the riders. I was very fortunate to have my own personal guide on each ride that shared their experiences, information on the ride routes, and love of cycling. Each guide was very friendly, enthusiastic, and in terrific riding shape. How cool is that? Definitely a Dolomite fantasy cycling vacation!
My second trip, this time a Trans tour, and I didn’t think it was possible, but my enjoyment keeps going up and up. Congrats to Thomson on improving an already great product. See you again soon!
Perfect organization. Fantastic routes and scenery. Great support - loved the sag service. Great hotels and food. I can’t wait to go on another Thomson Tour!
I had very high expectations given the number of bucket list climbs and having previously done a Thompson trip in the Pyrenees - and the trip delivered with very challenging climbs, great scenery and enjoyable Italian food and wine.
Thomson delivered another outstanding experience with the Trans Dolomite trip. The route was spectacular with challenging climbs, iconic passes, and unparalleled views every day. The support team did a great job leading the rides, encouraging the riders, and catering to our needs throughout the trip. The Dolomites trip is truly challenging and the Thomson trip formula really works - the routes, pacing, rental bikes, meals, and, most importantly, support and camaraderie enabled everyone to achieve their goals and have a great experience. This is a must do trip that should be on every serious bikers bucket list.
This must be my 6th or 7th with Thomson. What can I say?!
I’ve done bike trips with several companies over the last 23 seasons. This was my first Thomson trip and I’d rate their overall trip and particularly their support as #1.
Fantastic location, great route planning and wonderful support group.
“Thomson hit that sweet spot you want in a cycling trip: amazing and challenging riding, awesome support staff, delicious food, top notch support and great accommodations. After one trip, I would recommend over other tour companies offering similar trips.”
A wonderful experience, with the right balance of challenge, support, and pleasure.
This was the most challenging cycling experience I have ever attempted. No doubt I have done climbs and rides such was the ones we did in the trans-Domolites tour, but to link them back-to-back over a week of riding in the most beautiful setting in the world was a true test of both determination and ability that I will remember fondly forever. Thank You!
Brilliant week doing the signature climbs in the Dolomites. Hard riding (as expected) with first class support, accommodation and food. It was fun to be part of a really good group. The Thomson staff are excellent.
Great trip be back again soon
Trip of a lifetime. Challenging riding amongst spectacular scenery with a great tour company. Can’t imagine any better! Have previously done a Trek Climbs of the Tour trip and triathlon training camp in Boulder, CO.
The Trans-Pyrenees trip was a breeze compared to the Dolomites. Although the Dolomites was extremely challenging, having a good spirited group of ride leaders and trip manager made the trip fun, exciting and a pleasure. The support was second to none. This was my second trip with Thomson and I knew I would not be disappointed. I am already trying to decide my next trip with Thomson. Keep up the good work.
My favourite trip has been improved. I suggest training for Zoncolon
Riding my bike all day in Italy for 7 days without a worry or care to slow me down. How good is that?!
This was a wonderful trip, fully supported by very friendly ride staff, where nothing was a problem for them. The rides were challenging but spectacular. FANTASTIC.
2nd thomsons trip. excellent. you know what you’re coming for & you get it in spades!!!!!
Still not sure about the large number of riders for the trip - 24 compared with the 12 on last years Trans-Alps which was my first trip. Personally I liked the intimacy of a smaller group. Didn’t get a chance to interact with everyone because of the sheer number of guests.
Really great trip. Most fun I’ve had on two wheels since my last Thomson trip.
I would not hesitate to book my next trip with Thompsons and have been telling all my cycling mates back in Sydney the same thing. You guys are very professional and very hard to fault.
the bikes were responsive, stable and fun. the staff was professional, talented and fun, the routes were challenging, unique and fun, and experience simply outstanding!
Had a blast! Thank you! (I am fairly certain my husband started planning next year’s trip before we finished this one!)
A fantastic trip, beautiful mountain views of the Dolomites and Alps. Difficult but manageable climbs. Accommodations, food, support, staff all A++++++
Overloaded with iconic climbs and spectacular scenery, it has to be “cycling heaven”!!! Thanks Toni & Staff, and a great bunch of riders!
The trip was my best bike trip to date and was everything I had hoped.
Trans-Dolomite provided me the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful, stunning mountains in the world and ride some of the hardest, most iconic climbs in the cycling universe! An amazing experience for which I don’t have the words to describe.
It was fantastic.
Another great trip from Thomsons. Great riding, great climbs, great scenery and fantastic support. I am very grateful for the first class support I received from Toni, Gonzalo, Oscar and Lydia. These guys are champions!
Great trip for those who like to climb a lot every day. Not for the feint of heart!
If you want to challenge yourself, and you want to see and ride the biggest mountains the pro peloton tackles, this is the tour for you. And with the outstanding support from Thomson, you’ll be able to concentrate on riding and not worry about whether to bring that heavy jacket of not. An outstanding level of service, served up with passion and compassion!
Fantastic trip to the Dolomites! The organization and attention to detail was flawless. The ride & support team provided excellent expertise, guidance and lots of fun!
The guides really made the trip fantastic They were relaxed and fun and always took care of us.
The most enjoyable bike excursion I have ever had.
Great and spectacular tour! Well supported and organized as well as challenging routes. It shows that Thomson Bike Tours goes the extra mile to provide an unique cycling experience.
Great experience! It could not have been any better. Well, my legs could have been better lol
Epic adventure that fulfilled a bucket list and I would repeat this in a heart beat!
