In order to provide you with an unforgettable experience, we ensure that we have the best equipment at your disposal. Read below to find out more about the types of gear we can offer you during our tours:
Hybrid bikes serve many purposes. They're great for keeping fit, urban commuting, adventure, leisure and more. And each one is designed to provide a comfortable and fun riding experience.
They come equipped with a cyclometer, handlebar case or panniers, lock and water bottle.
An E-Bike (Electric Bicycle) is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which can be used for propulsion. This is perfect for those who want to pedal Portugal from north to south without breaking a sweat!
The road bike we offer is a carbon fibre fitness bike designed for riders who want the speed of an ultralight road bike combined with the comfort and control offered by straight handlebars.
Great for partners of unequal riding ability. You can both ride as hard or easy as you want and nobody has to wait, ever.
*The bikes are supplied with flat pedals. If you prefer, we can fit your own snap-on pedals to the bike you will be using.

Choose your own pace and find your way. You will meet one guide at the beginning and at the end of the tour. Throughout the tour you will have:
- 24h phone support line. In some of our tours, we provide a mobile phone so that you can call us free of charge and receive messages with the weather forecast.
- A Smartphone or GPS so you can follow the route at your own pace.
In all our tours, you will receive detailed information about the itinerary and the country you are visiting and, in cycling tours, route directions. This will not be standard documentation, but carefully revised documents for each individual tour. Even if we have done the tour a million times, all documentation is reviewed and adapted to YOUR unique tour. This is what we consider first class service.
