Claudio really couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Lending me some leggings for the cold weather and a helmet too... Obviously bike in perfect condition and excellent too! But he went above and beyond what could be expected... and great guide, lovely 60km route, on smaller cycling friendly roads, and taking great care that all was in good order. Highly recommended if you are visiting or new to the area. Gracias :-)

Booked at last minute having checked the weather forecast in UK and Barcelona. Claudio very helpful and interactive in sorting out a suitable itinerary for us. Brought the bikes to our hotel the day before and all set up to our sizes with correct pedals for our shoes. Bikes excellent and nicely maintained.

Getting out of Barcelona a little tricky (but not Claudio's fault of course) - take the guided option if not comfortable with big city traffic. All routes loaded into the Garmin door to door. Once out of Barca the routes were great. Coast from Arenal de Mar onwards stunning and no traffic. Second day we cycled to the hotspring at Caldes and stayed in a stunning old hotel (Hotel Balneari Vichy Catalan with hotspring baths in basement - think Grand Budapest Hotel). Day 3 we had fantastic climbs on empty roads en route to Girona. Claudio very helpful at beginning of day 3 when we were a little unsure about best options re route - clearly he knows the area backwards. Transfer back to airport at end and all luggage transfers very smooth. Day 3 Hotel Nord in Girona again lovely and excellent meal pre-booked in lovely restaurant opposite.

All in all a great holiday, a pleasure meeting with Claudio and definitely planning a return visit!

We have taken two trips with Claudio in 4 days of our stay in Barcelona (The Vineyards and Wineries tour of Penedes and The Hills Around The City tour of Barcelona). Both of them were great! Claudio is very professional and friendly person attentive to all the details. Perfect bikes, beautiful but still challenging routs. It is not only about cycling but also is a wonderful chance to get to know and understand local people through conversations with Claudio who is a proud Catalan. If you go to Barcelona, love cycling and ready for a stunning experience - you shall have no doubts but go for that trips, you will love it!

Claudio is just an awesome person. Before I even showed up in Barcelona I knew I was in good hands. He was easy and clear to communicate with. Even with the Catalonia independence vote going on our ride went great. He was concerned for my safety from the get go, we rescheduled the ride a day later because of the Catalonia independence strike, and when we hit the road he was very clear about how we would ride, and what to expect. Tackling the roads of a major city in a foreign land can be intimidating, but I felt like I was in great hands the entire time. 

As well as being a safe rider, Claudio is also a very strong rider! It was great to be lead so effortlessly around the hills of Barcelona. The route he chose was amazing. Great views, challenging climbs and amazing (I mean amazing!) descents, this was the kind of ride you can't wait to tell everyone about.

If you love cycling and want to get out while around Barcelona, contact Claudio. You will get to spend a day with a wonderful person and you will get to ride some amazing roads. Thank you Claudio!
