    Nice quiet roads, very good hotels

    Many of the roads were through farm country and there were a lot more cows than cars, which was lovely.
    The hotels were all very nice in all ways, and overall this was a very good cycle tour.
    3 times during the week we stayed in a hotel for 2 nights instead of moving every day, which was nice.
    I would recommend this tour to others. (this was my 8th one week cycle tour in Europe)

    What a wonderful experience seeing Northern Spain!

    This may be our favorite bike trip yet! The routes were beautifully crafted for maximum scenic views, minimal traffic, and wonderful towns. The hotels were all exceptional and unique. I love that we had 2 days in 3 places, so it gave us a little more opportunity to experience those regions. The drivers for pick up and drop off were super friendly, communicative, and prompt. The weather was just a little cooler than we would have liked for our trip, but it absolutely did not hinder us from enjoying every moment.

    Perfect way to experience northern Spain

    This was a great way to be introduced to Northern Spain. The hotel accommodations were all great. The bicycles were in great condition and fit perfectly; they were great for the climbs. We really appreciated having two nights in some of the towns. Gave us time to explore the area after a good night's rest.

    Awesome! Highly Recomend!

    Amazing Service, excellent accommodations, I would highly recommend this tour company for any tour they have. From pick up to the route to the drop off at the airport, it was amazing. Best tour ever. Traveled with several experienced people who had used multiple bike tours and they all said this was the best.

    Gorgeous countryside; great hotels

    The hotels and inns were all top notch and quaint. Bikes were high quality. Scenery was absolutely gorgeous. Staying overnight 2 days in some of the stops gave you options to explore the town. Staff was very courteous and helpful. This is not, however, a level 2 ride. Many hills. Get an e-bike unless you are an experienced and strong biker.

    Beautiful green scenery and rolling hills

    Great discovery of northern Spain. With 2-night layovers in 3 cities, we could ride everyday or take off up to 3 days during the week. Excellent support when needed.
