Mondo Bike Tours specializes in designing customized trips for private groups. Let us put together a personalized tour for you and your family or friends.
There are many advantages to a custom trip as it allows you to go where you want, when you want, and with whom you want. Cost is also an important consideration. With a customized trip you can have Europe’s finest hotels and cuisine or choose a mix of more affordable hotels and B&Bs. Want to cover a lot of ground, or take your time and savour each destination? It’s your trip, so you set the pace.
We help you develop a trip around your schedule and according to your wishes. You may book one of our regularly scheduled departures or choose dates that better fit your schedule, or we can create a trip to suit your private group. You decide the type of accommodations, the difficulty level of the rides, and of course where and when you would like to travel. We do everything else for you so you don’t have to worry, before and during your trip.
We can customize a trip to incorporate special events such as cooking classes, winery tours and tastings, visits to local artisans and artists, and guided visits of historical towns, villas and chateaux.
FOOD AND WINE: Great food and wine are an integral part of European life, so they naturally play a starring role in all of our trips. We go to great lengths to ensure that you experience authentic local cuisine as well as the best dishes that a particular chef has to offer. Sometimes tasting the food and wine is not enough! You maybe curious to know the history and background of regional dishes and wines and may even want to recreate these wonderful meals at home. This is why we organize cooking lessons both with professional chefs and local grandmothers so you can learn their secrets. Wine also has a fascination for many, so tours and tastings at famous wineries and local wine bars are part of every trip.
