Cycling through the Centuries
A Portuguese company founded by an American woman, now being run by her Brazilian-born daughter .... You've got to love it!. They provide a great variety of small, personalised guided trips through Portugal, Spain and France. There is also a self-guided option through www.cycling-rentals.com. CTTC gets high grades from us for the following: 1. they provide transportation to and from the starting point of each tour, 2. wine at dinners is included in the price, 3. a percentage of profits is used for helping to create more cycle routes or restoration on historic monuments where they tour. Their prices are very reasonable, but they stay in 4 & 5 star accommodations similar to those that the large US-based companies use. In addition, they have a dedicated environmental policy ... something we woud like to see from more companies.
