Bikestyle Tours has been organizing trips to the Tour de France since 1996. In 2013 that will be 17 years of organising trips to the Grand Tours, making us amongst the most experienced Tour Operators at such events.

The enthusiasm of our staff for the Tour and the knowledge and insight provided by our guides means that a Bikestyle Tours trip gives you an unequalled experience. Our staff ratio of 1 staff to every 7-8 clients is one of the best in the business and assures a high level of personal service. You will be looked after by our professional team of on the road cycling guides, mechanics and support van drivers.

The combination of years of experience, good service, attention to detail and value for money has proven to be a winning formula. On our trips we stay in quality 3 star and 4 star hotels chosen for their comfort and location staying as close as possible to the race route, with a mix of traditional and modern hotel styles. In 2012 we will have a group limit of 35 people per trip with some new smaller group trips with 20-25 people per trip.

Importantly all Bikestyle trips are Guaranteed Departures, so we won’t cancel a trip due to insufficient numbers leaving you stranded. Our customers come from all over the world so no matter where you live we can help you with your Tour de France vacation.

Our comfortable fleet of buses are the best in the business and in 2013 will be fitted with French standard digital televisions. Our custom designed enclosed trailers carry your bike safely and this year most will have an outside shower with hot water to freshen up after you ride when we are on the road.

With our Corsica trip we’ve taken the headache out of travel for you and included return ferries to Corsica and for our Spectator Trip a flight from Paris direct to Corsica.

For your comfort we eliminate long bus transfers where possible and instead give you another unique French experience, the high speed TGV train.

We hope to see you on one of our trips in 2013!
