Pyrenees 2019, Atlantic to the Mediterranean

I have been on two other bike trips with other companies and Montefusco Cycling (Claudio) is by far the best. 8 riders, all friends, started in Hondarribia on the Atlantic ending in Tossa de Mar on the Mediterranean, 9 days. Epic climbs including the Tourmalet, great support, great hotels and great meals. Incredible value!! Thank you Claudio and Francios for making the trip a memorable one!

“Custom 7 day tour – Girona into the pyrenees (and back)”

Last July Claudio arranged an amazing 7 day, supported tour for me and 7 members of my Canadian cycling squadra – all avid, competitive cyclists. We began in Girona, and did a big loop north into the Pyrenees including a night in France (aix les thermes) and Andorra.- averaging about 110-120 km per day. A week later we ended our ride at Mar de Tossa, a beauty seaside resort on the Costa Brava near Girona. Claudio worked out all details of our route, meals, hotels etc. while providing support on the road/moving our baggage from town to town. We have previously done several bike tours in pyrenees and alps with other cyclo-tour organizers (including Duck tours, cyclo mondo) but in most respects Claudio was absolutely the best!

Incredibly attentive and kind, but obviously he knows the coolest roads, and nicest off the beaten track hotels in northern Spain.. .esp. Catalonia & Basque regions. For no extra charge he also picked up everyone + our bikes at Barce airport and transported to Girona. Then arranged to get everyone back to Barce to make our various flights when the tour was over . We wouldn’t hesitate to ride w/ Montefusco Tours again and are already thinking about arranging a similar tour w/ Claudio in the basque

“Amazing group tour of Catalan with an incredible tour guide in Claudio”

Claudio put a week tour together for our group of 8. Started in Girona, into the Pyrenees and into France, Andorra and ended on the Costa Brava. 100km plus per day. Great hotels and meals were arranged. The support van was always in the places it was needed. Highly recommended. Thanks Claudio
