A memorable tour

Clement Kim — 2015
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

First, this was my first trip to Europe and a first bike tour. And the tour operator made it a memorable, hard but enjoyable and well organised experience. Couldn't have asked for anything more...I attempted many hard, beautiful climbs in the Alps...minus the heat, I think I would have fared much better. But the overall experience was awesome and Aigars Paegle and Janis Musins "Coach" were awesome hosts. Took care of you when it was needed. Left you alone when it was warranted. They were very accommodating and generous. Felt like many "Sunday"rides with a handful of your buddies. If you are thinking of some serious riding in Europe, consider the tour operator to even accommodating your custom tour. The routes they select are awesome and breathtaking. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Prepared food are delicious!!! I wish I can do a Tour with them several times a year.... Thank you Aigars and Janis for the experience and memories.

Cycling dream

Michael Lysyk — 2015
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

2015 will forever live in my memories as the vacation that allowed me to learn what it means to “climb” as well as view the races of the Tour de France. An avid “crit” racer who lives in Florida, my previous climbing experiences have been little or non-existent when compared to the 39,000 ft. I tackled on this journey. With the aid of them leader Aigars Paegle and coach Janis Musins, I received the personal attention necessary to allow me to achieve my goal of climbing the mountains of the Tour de France. The tour operator specializes in catering to small groups that are hard core cyclists so you will never find a excursion like this, that will be allow you to fulfill your cyclling needs and special viewing set-up complete with satellite dish and gas grill.
Thank you Aigars and Janis for fulfilling the dream of a lifetime!

Enjoyable bike tour

Harold Conter — 2015
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

Overall really enjoyed the bike tour. The tour was well organised for the whole tour and in particular for the days we watched the Tour de France. The locations for viewing of Le Tour were great and the amenities provided were awesome. The itinerary for the tour covered all the major Cols in the region with options that helped eliminate “junk” miles. In addition, as sometimes happens on holiday, forces beyond your control change the plan. The tour operator was well prepared with alternate options that were equal to my expectations of the original route. I thought the tour was a little pricey compared to other tours, but it can be hard to compare value without actually going on all the tours. I was disappointed that none of the guides on the tour spoke French. I had communicated that as an expectation prior to the tour. Luckily no emergencies came up, but based on my previous experience it helps enhance the experience of being in a foreign land when you have guides that know the language.

Pros & Cons
  • Nice route covering all the major cols
  • Well organised
  • Excellent support
  • A little pricey
  • No French speaking guide
