– My husband and I organised this trip with Claudio via email. We are reasonably experienced bike tourers, but were fitting this trip in between other travel so wanted to be able to hire bikes and have our luggage transferred between hotels.Everything about our communication with him was helpful, accurate and easy.Claudio organised our bikes (which were great) and guided us out of Barcelona. The routes were as described as was the accommodation and they were fantastic.Along the way, he kept in touch with us and gave us extra ideas of things we may want to see or do.Claudio was great company as he guided us out of Barcelona and transferred us back and we learned quite a bit about local history and culture along the way.I highly recommend this trip and Claudio to you.It was a highlight of our trip to Spain!
– 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
We did a 5 day self-guided bike tour from Girona, down the Costa Brava, and ended in Barcelona. Claudio created a fantastic route on scenic, backcountry roads. He recommend great places to stay and lunch stops along the way. The trip was just perfect, and we highly recommend using Claudio for your next bike tour!
“Excellent support on a multi-day cycling trip for a couple.” Claudio planned our routes, booked accommodations, shuttled our luggage and rented bicycles for a six day trip from Barcelona to Girona via many Catalonian cycling highlights. All this for two people! Most outfits wouldn’t even talk to us.Claudio is an enthusiastic guide with an incredible amount of knowledge about the area. The routes were suited to our ability and the equipment was excellent. Each day had a highlight: Tibidabo, Costa Brava, the Spa at Balneari Vichy Catalan, the hill out of Tamariu and on to Begur, the climb to Sant Pere de Rodes, the farm stays in Perelada and Joanetes (plus Collada des Bracons bonus climb), capped off by the view at el Far and riding into Girona.
I’d heartily recommend any trip with Claudio and would love to go back. Unforgettable.
– Wir, 2 Personen, haben die „Self Guided“ Tour Barcelona – Girona bei Claudio gebucht. Es fing schon gut an! Beim Start der Tour in Barcelona regnete es in Strömen! Aber kein Problem, Claudio hat uns einfach per VW Bus incl. Fahrräder und Gepäck zum nächsten Hotel gebracht. Hier haben wir dann vereinbart, dass wir am nächsten Morgen, per WhatsApp entscheiden, wie es weitergeht. Es war kalt und regnete wieder so dass wir die Variante VW Bus wählten. Die Woche war wettermäßig insgesamt unbeständig, so dass wir Tag für Tag morgens entschieden haben, ob Fahrrad oder VW Bus! Insgesamt, so eine Superlösung, gerade wenn man nicht im Regen und bei niedrigen Temperaturen Rad fahren möchte. In allen Hotels fühlte man sich wohl und es gab immer Möglichkeiten neben dem Radfahren (Sauna, Thermalbad, Wandern, Stadtbummel, Museum, nett sitzen) alle Hotels hatten das „gewisse Etwas“!
Alle Touren, die wir fahren konnten, waren superschön, ohne viel Verkehr, landschaftlich ein Genuss.
Man kann Claudio nur weiterempfehlen! Entspanntes, genussvolles Radeln und Reisen ist garantiert!
– “My wife and I were planning a two week bike ride through the North of Spain and South Western France. We generally do our own thing, not being tour oriented. We discovered Claudio online. His communication was extremely professional and timely. His pricing was a good value…”
