I recently visited gerona on a cycling trip and came across this new company! They were excellent from the start and made my trip such a pleasure! It was a one stop shop for everything I wanted on this trip and nothing was too much hassle! Brian was my guide, he has a great knowledge of the area & knows the hidden gems of gerona of which there are many! I will make this an annual trip and would definitely recommend! The bikes are top notch too!Sean CThanks guys for a great trip
