Thank you Valda for a great trip.

The emphasis on quality service from the team was exceptional. From Stephen’s bike fit, selection of the bikes, assistance and advice on setup of equipment, and the support on the hill from Steve, yourself, Giles and for that one day Claudio it all just fitted together so well. The team’s seamless efforts made it so much easier to enjoy and bask in the magnificent scenery. The subtle efforts of the support cyclists on each day ensured we all achieved our cycling goals and were ready to take on the next day’s challenges.

Again thank you for a fantastic tour which was more a journey of great pleasure with stages that were exacting physically and mentally only to be overwhelmed by the scenery and the comradery at the refuel stops and the end of day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your company’s tours.

I would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful time I had on the trip. You sure did make it a truly special 50th birthday week 😊. And that is exactly what I wanted from this trip, something truly memorable and one I will never forget. From the way you ran and organised the trip and treated your guests was undoubtably professional and a credit to you both.

Simon (Queensland, 2018)

I had great time on tour with you, Valda, Simon and Lee, it was a true joy to experience and share our days out on the bike. I saw amazing places [and] did things 2 weeks ago I wouldn’t have thought possible. Your passion and dedication to planning delivery and outcome is second to none and allowed me to focus just on riding and enjoying the experience. I do hope my enthusiasm for descending didn’t add too many grey hairs, the Storck was a wonderful, predictable, confidence inspiring bicycle probably a lot faster than me.

Andrew (NSW, 2018)

Our thanks to you, Steve and to Gilles for a great trip. We both enjoyed it and had a great time. It was great to attempt the big passes and know that if things did not work out as planned that there was back up in the form of Gilles and the (support) van.

As a bit of feedback the style of the trip suited both of us as it did not involve moving on every day. It was good to be based in one place for a few nights and be able to ride out from there, coming back to the same place in the evening.

We had a really good time.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my repeat visit with you guys - fab group, wonderful itinerary of rides that challenged us all (but not too much) and once again - fantastic care from the all of the VBT team. Can't think of how to thank you enough. Could I give a special shout-out to Gilles for always managing to be in touch with all of us on every climb and yet still managed to be at the top to take my bike and make sure I was in good shape. He is a star.

Thanks again

Peter (New Zealand, 2018)

Thank you for a truly amazing unforgettable experience!

I now understand why Graeme told me that he would not do a bike tour with anyone else...

George (South Australia, 2018)

My husband and I toured in 2017 and this tour was the highlight of our European trip. It was a 5 star tour. We didn't know what to expect but the Team of Steve, Valda, Gilles and Bee were exceptional. The accommodation was amazing, the dinners were wonderful and the riding was better than I had ever expected! If you enjoy cycling this is must! And Steve and Valda make the experience a 10/10!

Thanks guys!

Amy (Queensland, 2017)

Just want to let you know how much we enjoyed touring with you guys, nothing was a problem. I even enjoyed our little sojourn to the supermarket on our first morning for ham and baguettes 😂 Greg and I are keen to do Pyrenees next [year], let us know availability.

“I have ridden my [top brand name bike] today and yesterday and I have realised how good the Storck bike was that I rode in Giro de Velo last week.”

Bruce - Qld (2017)

I was amazed at the high level of service you provide...cleaning and maintaining bikes daily, leadership, planning, accommodation, transfers, rides, massages, meals etc etc. In my experience no other operator offers the same consistently high standard.

I am so pleased that I have booked already for 2 more tours with velobiketours for 2018!
