Top Guide Tours

We are very excited to welcome you to our new Top Guide Tour series! Since 1989, Ciclismo Classico has prided itself in the world’s top guides. Many of our Ciclismo Classico tour guides have been leading tours for at least 8 years. This new Top Guide tour series is our way to celebrate what our multi-talented, super passionate and charismatic guides love and do best: design itineraries, share their love of cycling and a deliver world class bicycle travel experience to every Ciclismo Classico guest. In 2014 we have asked several of Ciclismo Classico guides, who are guiding their 100th ++ tour with us to design or lead their Ciclismo Classico dream tour. Each dream tour is a blend of a spectacular destination and a special menu of ingredients that make the tour an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime experience for both the guides and our guests. Before these tours even were released to the “general” public, they were SOLD OUT or nearly sold out. WHY? Because anyone who has been on a tour with Ciclismo Classico guides knows that they put their heart and soul into every tour they lead, everything that they do…and isn’t that what life is all about anyway!

Fall alumni savings are not available on top guide tours.

Bike Across Brittany
with Enrico Pizzorni

Coming soon!
June 25 - July 2, 2016

With its Celtic heritage, tangible in people, landscape, language, food and tradition, Brittany is the less French of French regions; our itinerary unfolds west to east along wild seaside cliffs, romantic lighthouses, glorious, unspoiled nature and character-packed towns. Cycling in Brittany is never boring: the roads are quiet and allow riders to fully appreciate the surroundings, the terrain changes continuously and offers enough challenge to a wide range of intermediate riders.
