“Wonderful Event”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We recently finished a 7 day/6 night bike self guided bike tour in North East Spain organized by CicloTurisme. We had a wonderful time, and thoroughly enjoyed the ride through some great scenery. The staff at Ciclo Turisme were friendly, accommodating, and took our suggestions for improvement to heart. The prices were fair, the bikes were in good shape, and the destinations they chose gave us a good sample of the small towns in the Costa Brava area.

“One week bike trip with young kids along the Vias Verdes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Just back from a very nice experience with CicloTurisme (booked via Belgian agent Belgium Biking).

In 7 days, we, with our 5 and 7-years old boys, crossed a small part of Catalonya on our rented bikes from Olot via Girona to San Feliu de Guixols: during 5 days, we have ridden 20 to 30km a day on safe, green tracks, in a beautiful landscape under blue skies.

Luggage was transported from hotel to hostal to agriturismo to hotel. Transfer of bikes and family to and from Girona Airport were executed by very friendly and helpful Estel from CicloTurisme office in Girona.

A warmly recommended organization!

“Wonderful week long bike tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

We had a wonderful vacation organized through CicloTurisme, from start to finish. Being in California, it was very helpful to have regular email contact with Neus prior to booking the trip. She was very helpful with answering questions, helping us choose an itinerary, and managing the booking. I felt secure working with this company.

We chose the self-guided "Great sights of Girona region (8D-7N)" tour (Giepogi route) which started and ended in Girona, going up the Costa Brava and through Olat. The route was easy to moderate for our family of 5 (ages 48, 49, 20, 16, 12). Our kids liked the parts along the coast the best, and I think we did too. There were some very long uphill sections heading to and through the mountains, but the bikes had very low gears. So it was tedious and slow on the very heavy bikes during the uphills, but something your average fit cyclist could manage. A couple of the hotels on the route were exceptional and a couple not as good. But overall, very good accommodations and not a single mistake with any of our bookings. We did the half board option (dinner) which was perfect after a long day. No searching for a restaurant and we were never disappointed.

The bikes were all in fairly good shape, and we had only minor mechanical issues. They really take a beating on this trip, though, because some of the routes are on dirt roads with lots of holes and rocks. Tons of vibration and sand and dirt. The route maps were good, but there were a few times we really had to stop and figure things out--and do short turn arounds (especially in city centers). But overall, that was reasonable on such a long journey. Most of the roadways felt safe (and were off road or on bikeways)--except for a few short spots. When we returned the bikes, the staff were so happy to talk to us and listen to our feedback and reviews. They were tremendously friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this company!

“Two perfect days from Olot to San Feliu des Guixols”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

It was a good surprise to find such a professional and friendly team when we booked online for a weekend bike tour in Girona. Cicloturisme recommended us to do the tour from Olot to San Feliu des Guixols riding the Vias Verdes!!! We bought from them the whole package, including the renting of the bikes, hotel (two nights in Girona at the URH) and transfers. Everything was perfect!! Although the weather was cloudy and a little cold (the time we had to do the trip was in mid november) we enjoyed a lot. It was our first experience on a bike tour and we felt very secure because the path was easy, the equipment good and everybody we met on the way was very helpful and nice. We did the tour in two days. Day one, from Olot to Girona, and the Day two, from Girona to San Feliu des Guixols. The landscape varies all the way, we begin in the mountains and finish by the sea, exactly the way the staff told us. We definitely recommend Ciclo Turisme and we hope to do another tour with them next year. - Sandra Pecis and Jussara Lerrer

“Great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

My experience with CicloTurisme Girona is great. I visited them and rented Orbea Orca road bike for an triathlon event. It is very easy to book their bike online. Staff was really friendly, very experienced in tourism and bikes. Service is excellent and I felt comfortable on the race. Overall great experience, would definitely recommend!
