GUEST FEEDBACK

Check out more reviews here on our Facebook page.

I have recently returned from the Velo 2017 Pyrenees tour and boy do I miss them already. This was my 4th trip to Europe riding and my 3rd with an escorted tour. I cannot speak highly enough of the team. From the moment we (my brother and I) enquired we were made to feel looked after. But from the moment we arrived we were made to feel like family.  No detail was missed, no request ever too hard and no question too stupid. Kerry and Kim (soon to be fondly called Uncle Kerry and Aunty Kim) led the way from the first handshake and smile at Toulouse Airport, Tim, Asha and Ben are the ultimate support crew. Kerry, Tim and Ben literally supported us up the magical and mythical mountains of the Pyrenees. Kim and Asha in one or other of the two support vans were always encouraging whilst loaded with drinks, gels, bars, chips and sweets.  Our home in Luchon made such a difference. An exclusive home base for Velo where we as a group could chill before and after the carefully planned days ride. Breakfast ready to go when we woke and superb local restaurants offering some amazing local dishes each night for dinner all included in the Velo experience.  This was a bucket list trip for my brother and I. We can so happily tick it off and forever remember the wonderful friends we made not only at Velo but through Velo.  I cannot do them justice or state how highly I would recommend Velo Tours, regardless of the standard of your riding they'll have you covered.  Brilliant in every way.

Thanks so much,

We have just arrived home after doing the Alpes Ventoux Tour. In short, the experience was outstanding! From initial communications to the final celebratory dinner and drop off at the airport we can only but highly recommend Velo Tours to anyone wanting to experience great riding and great company. After doing various other adventure type holidays previously, we had high expectations and set Kerry & Kim the additional request of wanting to take our 12 month old son and Nonna with us on the trip. The guys delivered in spades! Kerry & Kim arranged a bespoke itinerary so that we could join the group when needed, whilst maintaining a holiday as a family, with many small details added so that Nonna and baby Jimmy enjoyed their times as well. Velo Tours are a great group that are small enough to ensure a truely genuine personal touch, but with significant experience and industry contacts; we certainly felt like our time with them mattered. Shout outs also go to the rest of the Velo Tours team - Tim, Asha, Ben & Blair all ensured the Velo Tours experience was a great one and if ever a hurdle got in the way, the team resolved it within a matter of minutes - even swapping a bike when a chain broke (...thanks again Tim). There is nothing more we could of asked for and will definitely use Velo Tours again when we do our next tour, whether at home or abroad! Thanks again Kerry & Kim.

Once upon a time there was a Lady I knew who said and I quote "Go on holidays to France to ride my bike up mountains?? Seriously I would rather poke my eye out with a sharp stick! ". Now this Lady has to eat her words, preferably with good French Vanille Ice Cream - and say what a truly wonderful adventure she has had.  If you enjoy riding your bike then please do yourself a favour and take a trip of a lifetime with Velo Tours. Thank you so much.

Having just finished a wonderfully challenging tour of the Pyrenees I wish it would never have ended. The Velotours staff go above and beyond to ensure each and every one of us left with our bucket lists ticked and a huge smile on our faces. We were all treated like family, not just customers, and relished the opportunity to "live like a local" in Luchon. Au Revoir......until next time

Loved every minute. I don't think I would change anything- the monthly newsletters were good, logistics excellent and flexibly really really good and appreciated - everyone could ride as much as they wanted.

Another smashing tour by the Velo Tours crew! After experiencing the Alpes-Ventoux tour last year I just had to come back to take on the Pyrénées! Kim, Kerry and their fabulous team did not disappoint, nor did the mammoth climbs, spectacular scenery and Tour de France fever! I cannot speak highly enough of the Velo Tours experience - so much so that I'm returning next year to make it 3 years in a row! Thanks again team - stellar performance!

I have just come back from doing the east coast tassie tour with 9 of my cycling buddies. we all had the most amazing time and all of us rated the trip 10/10. what made it so special for us was the way Kerry and Kim looked after us. They really are the most amazing hosts and it was the little extra things they did for us that made it truly memorable. Nothing was a problem even when we wanted to change a few things like going bushwalking or visits to Mona - they ferried us around. When one of our guys complained about his 'snoring' room buddy, they even gave up their room at the hotel so he could have his own room . Would we go with them again? ABSOLUTELY and we're already starting to plan our west coast tassie tour.

I recently rode the East Coast of Tasmania Tour with velotours and I can highly recommend them! The rides were well planned, the scenery was stunning, accomodation and transport organised and on top of that great company. After finishing a ride the days were flexible with opportunities to visit some of the local wineries and sights. The ride up to the top of mount Wellington on the last day topped it all off nicely! Thanks!

My husband and I decided to do the Velotours Alps tour in July and every bit of it was absolutely exceptional. The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful, but what made it even more special were the tour hosts, Kim and Kerry and their dedicated staff. From the moment we arrived they made us feel special. Nothing was a problem. They went out of their way to make sure that individual needs were accommodated and this ranged from adjusting our daily route rides (to suit different riding skills and interests or weather) to dinner menus, etc. Their experience and their customer-centric focus meant they had always anticipated the needs of their participants. I kid you not, these tour hosts are amazing! Riding through the Alps was made even more memorable because of the Velotours hosts.

Can't believe we got to pack so much action into the time with Velo Tours, they really know their stuff! But it's the customer attention and focus on the small things as well that makes them so special!

I was lucky enough to spend some time with Velotours in the Pyrenees this year, absolutely amazing experience. They exceeded all expectations and provided a truly memorable experience . I will certainly be back. 10/10

Most amazing experience!!!!... from beginning to end. Magnificent cycling, great people, incredible scenery! Can’t recommend it highly enough!
 
It was really well organised with heaps of support both before and during the tour .  The monthly newsletters prior where really helpful in preparing and giving an idea of what to expect and the support van on each ride was invaluable. Seeing the Tour de France a couple of times was ace and the magnificent photos of each ride are incredible and now a treasured record of memories of good times and the beginning of great friendships. Can’t wait to do it again with you guys!
 
Very professional outfit by people who love cycling, are experienced and pride themselves in giving their customers a good experience both on and off the bike. If you have ever wanted to do anything like this …then Velotours is your tour company!

Outstanding Alps-Ventoux tour last week that far exceeded my expectations and has me planning my next tour already! Kerry and Kim (and their team) go above and beyond to ensure everyone is well supported and have the experience of a lifetime! Our base in the Alps was stunning and the cycling was exceptional. I've left with a real sense of accomplishment after summiting some world-famous climbs, and I could not recommend Velo Tours highly enough! Keep up the great work Kerry and Kim - you put on an amazing show!!

"I absolutely LOVED every moment of this tour! I didn’t know what to expect and was totally blown away. Everything was expertly well-organised from beginning to end, and the trip was complete luxury! The tour was very professionally run yet Kim and Kerry made everyone feel like they were friends. I can’t imagine trying to do this without being on a tour – with all the inclusions, local knowledge and organisation it would have been a substandard experience. This tour offered incredible value for money, convenience and an amazing life experience I will never forget. Not to mention stunning scenery and making new friends! Can’t wait to explore the Alps with Velo Tours next year!!

Hi Kerry,

I will add my thanks for a great trip. I dropped in to the tour at the last minute and was astounded by the quality of the trip. Outstanding & very personalised service by two fantastic blokes. Your best advertising will be from customers like us. I have already sung your praises to anyone who will listen. Thanks again to the guys for having me along & making me feel like I had been part of the crew for years. Great bunch of blokes.

Cheers
