“Just finished hosting 13 cycling friends and myself on a 5 day cycling through the Dolomites Tour. I didn’t think ECT could top the the Tour of the Pyrenees they hosted for a group of 13 cycling friends last year. I was wrong. Their tour of the Dolomites exceeded all our expectations from the facilities we stayed in to the cycling routes they designed for each ride. It was amazing and we are looking forward to our next bucket list Cycling tour with ECT.” [Dave Bues]
“I recently travelled from the United States to complete the London to Paris Bike Ride Tour de France edition offered by European Cycling Tours. A number of companies offered similar tours, and I communicated with each of them. The communications I had with Jason and his team left me with the impression that ECT was the company I should be riding with. The experience I had during this ride has confirmed that I made the right decision.
The trip was incredible and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our group consisted of people of varying ages and riding abilities. The ride was led by Jason in a way that challenged the more advanced riders while making sure that the less advanced riders (e.g. myself) were not left behind.
As a tour leader, Jason was exceptional. In addition to being knowledgeable about where we were and where we should be in order to take the perfect picture, he highlighted things we should know about the area. The morning briefings about what lay ahead for the day as well as any advice he had were greatly appreciated.
The ride was fantastic, however when I first arrived in Paris I thought it was no different from any other city around the world until we rounded a corner and I was able to see the Arc de Triomphe. It is a sight I will never forget. It was an amazing experience. After taking photos and selfies of this, Jason recommended another experience I will never forget. In traffic, we rode around the Arc de Triumph 360 degrees. As there are no traffic lanes, the traffic circle resembles 8-10 lanes of traffic in which cars weave in and out of each other to get around. During this ride, we became part of the traffic. As I type this, I am smiling because of how amazing that little excursion was. Next, we are greeted by the Eiffel Tower. We stopped again for the obligatory pictures of the tower, the group, each of us individually, selfies, etc… At that moment I realized – “I DID IT!”, I MADE IT FROM LONDON TO PARIS” – Thank you Jason for this experience!
I will not hesitate to recommend the ECT London to Paris (L2E Edition) bike ride to anyone. I am considering doing it again next year. ECT has also earned my trust and I would not hesitate to participate in any of their tours.” [Todd Rosen]
“Our cycling holiday organised by Jason was amazing from beginning to end.
We had a basic idea of what we wanted to do and Jason put together a bespoke itinerary listening to all our requirements.
The routes each day were stunning and Jason and Giles looked after us perfectly, guiding us and ensuring the support van was always close by with anything we needed and organising lunch and coffee shops en route.
At the end of a long day in the saddle the hotels and accommodation that Jason organised for us just got better and better and were stunning. He greatly exceeded our expectations!
Jason and Giles made our special ride truly memorable and great fun and we look forward to organising our next ride with Jason and European Cycling Tours.” [Fiona Love]
“What an incredible trip, cycling from Alpe d’Huez to Nice over 5 days, a tailor made itinerary brimming with stunning views, wonderful accommodation and the odd challenge or two!!!
Jason’s attention to detail was brilliant and he more than delivered on all our requirements. Giles was our support crew, he was fantastic, there at every turn with fresh water, warm clothes, cheery encouragement, not to mention all the fabulous moments he captured on camera!
Jason and Giles were both professional and relaxed making our trip incredibly enjoyable and truly memorable, Jason we will definitely be in touch in the future, it was an absolute pleasure, thankyou.” [Ruth Gillies]
“Amazing group to work with. Professional service provided for a group of 50 cyclists from Malta doing over 1,200km on two parallel routes for road and mountain bikes all the way from Copenhagen to Warsaw” [Michael Gafa]
“European Cycling Tours pulled out all the stops to help us with our yearly cycling challenge. They successfully organised the logistics for two parallel routes. 1 on road bikes and 1 on MTB, with plenty of off-road for the latter. A great team all around” [Elton Berry]
“Wanna learn more about cycling safety on the road? Plan a trip with European Cycling Tours” [Nick Shembri]
“Great persons and leaders….always safety first and second….well done ECT…. ” [Justin Gauci]
“It was the most physically demanding thing i have done and by far the most enjoyable. If you want team building and comradeship this is perfect. Jason and Will our guides could not have been better, pushing us and encouraging ( mostly by lying) 😀 … I can’t wait for next year Italy… here we come. I have already hired my wattbike for the winter training. I am coming for you Jason get that yellow ready!” [Adrian]
“Thanks Jason for a great trip – next year Stelvio!” [Matt]
“My first trip overseas and i know i’m going to do more. Thankyou Jason and Will, it was a great experience indeed!” [Tony]
“Where are we going next year!” [George]
“Thankyou for a marvelous time Jason, enjoyed every minute of it even if i didn’t make it all the way up to the top. We shall be with you again in the future for sure.” [Cleeves]
“Wonderful time, thankyou Jason and Paul” [Alex]
“Thankyou again Jason for a wonderful trip. I will be in touch with you for another” [Hilary]
“We had a wonderful four days with you and Tori – Many thanks for everything, we look very much forward to booking with you again” [Jeela]
“Jason and Paul did an absolutely fantastic job of guiding our successful cycle challenge from London to Paris. From beginning to end, the ride, route, food, accomodation and logistics were professionally planned with precision. Guiding 13 riders of mixed ability I am sure is no easy task, but it certainly looked it! The route was one that could only be planned by people who had ridden them roads before. The surface’s were great, the traffic was minimal and the scenery
was beautiful. At no time did we take a wrong turn, and the support Van met us on all the places we needed it. Even mechanical’s didn’t stop us, as the teams intrinsic knowledge of cycling mechanics had them fix an otherwise critical mechanical on the route. If you want a challenge without the hassle of planning, and want an inclusive ride, European Cycling Tours are the folks to help you achieve it.” [Stephen Pammenter]
