Cycling through the Centuries

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 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.

    I’ve done 2 tours with CTTC – Portugal and Spain. Both were great trips. The service was great and the guides were very knowledgeable about the regions we visited. My experience with CTTC was above and beyond what I expected. And finally, both trips were excellent value for my money – quaint hotels, great meals, excellent bikes, clearly marked routes (in addition to good maps and directions).

    On a scale of 1-10, provided a trip that was an 11. We rode along the coast of Portugal and they did an amazing job of running the trip. It was definitely a trip we won’t forget and look forward to the next one with them!
