    The description for this company is totally incorrect. There is no staff. Owner (John) and par-time student assistant mechanic.

    I was one of the 19 on the June 2017 Challenge Tour and agree with agree with the poor reviews related to this tour. Right from minute 1, when I entered the shop for my fitting, I was greeted with a cold “can I help you?” by John, given a feeling that I was a bother.

    A number of people received the same cold reception. One was nastily told he was to early (15 min), asked to come back later since he (John) was having a “private meeting”.
    The group was amazing and a lot of fun. The guides were great. Antoine (cook and luggage) was unbelievable and always doing his best to please and making sure we were well fed. Almost as if he felt bad for us about John’s lack of everything and no give s**t attitude now that he has your money.

    One of our riders (an experience and good rider) suffered a fall. No SAG vehicle or support for John. She couldn’t ride and was now on her own. Fortunately she had her husband who naturally accompanied her on the train to the next town. A few days later she had another bad fall on a gravel path and needed some medical assistance. Again, John did not give a rat’s behind and simply suggested they call an ambulance or a cab. Since no SAG van to pick-up bikes, she and husband are both still responsible for their bikes. WOW! Frustrated they told John to take the bikes back and they were done with the tour.

    I can go on about the poor service and John’s poor attitude, but likely you will read posts of a number of people that were extremely disappointed with John & Bike Switzerland.
    Yes! Country is fabulous for both scenery and best I’ve been to for bike friendly roads, paths….. But like others said, it would have been nice to have a little time to enjoy the towns and cities we arrived at, at the end of each day.

    One site suggests Bike Switzerland as the Premier Tour Company of Switzerland. Far isn’t far enough from the truth. Don’t fall for the videos (old), and the write on their site.
    I will go back to cycle other parts of Switzerland. NOT with this company!
