Global Cycling With Local Character

There's no better way to take in a country than to be fully immersed in it - the way you can be on a bicycle. There's no wall between you and the life that's lived on each corner, in every village plaza and up on the very next hillside.

We started bicycling the world in 1972 with our first guided cycling tour in Italy.  Today we are still a family run, small business with a passion for the open road. Authentic, experienced, and engaging are our watch words. As one of the oldest international bike tour companies around, we are in a unique position to offer high quality routes, guides and itineraries in multiple destinations. We invite you to browse our bicycle tours and destinations and join us on your next cycling vacation.
