Reviews from Travellers on this Tour

Marc F.  

Excellent time riding in Green Spain

20-May-2023

Fantastic support and bikes from Ibero Cycles for a self-guided cycling trip in Green Spain. The routes they provided were excellent with beautiful scenery and roads without much traffic. Luggage transfers all worked as promised without a hitch. The bikes and bike setups were excellent right from the start. The hotels were definitely bike friendly and all were very comfortable and we slept well everywhere we went. I would not hesitate to work with Ibero Cycles again on another trip.

If you don't now how or were to organize your bicycle trip in Spain, we just have the most wonderful e-bike experience for a party of 14 in marvellous Cantabria with Iberocycle.

Paul  

Spectacular riding in Norther Spain.

26-Apr-2023

We had an amazing time riding along the northern coast of Spain. Iberocycle (Simon and our contact person, Ignacio) did everything they could to create a great trip for us. The hotels they booked were excellent, the rides were absolutely spectacular, and any time we contacted them they got back to us within minutes. If you are thinking about booking a cycling trip, it's hard to imagine a better place to do it than in Cantabria and Istria. The landscape is beautiful--beaches, wonderful little towns, fantastic roads. We were even amazed at how respectful and careful the few drivers we saw were, waiting to pass us on twisty mountain roads until it was safe for us. We would definitely recommend Iberocycle, and will likely return with friends to do another trip with them sometime.

Denise Baird  

Great area to explore.

15-Jun-2023

We have done 3 tours with IberoCycle (a self guided trip in Northern Spain, a supported trip in Andalusia, and a customized group tour in the Picos de Europa for a group of our friends) and all have been excellent! Simon’s team does an excellent job - very good routes, bikes and charming hotels. We have done many bike tours in Europe and IberoCycle is one of our favourite companies to work with!
