The guides on our cycle tours

At Mercurio Bike Travel you will find nothing but guided cycling holidays. You will receive insights that can't be found in any written tour book. Our guides are bilingual, making it easy for you to get all your questions answered.

Besides guiding you around during the day and joining the group for dinner, they arrange luggage transport to the next hotel and prepare delicious picnics at lunchtime. They offer a seat in our escort van if needed and take care of anything else that may come up.
