What a super day!!!!! Even though downhill bikes weren't due to open for their season. They very kindly ran a half day tour for us yesterday. Without a doubt the highlight of our week. Very well organised. If you have any nerves or feel rusty on a bike , they will put you at complete ease with a prep run... More

We had the most amazing day. Started off being fitted to a bike that suits you and then you drive up through the vineyards. You only cycle downhill so fitness levels are never an issue!! As well as the amazing scenery and laughs along the way you will stop at an olive oil production site that sells the most delicious... More

Neither myself or my partner had been on a bike in years but we were quickly brought up to speed with the training session before being taken to the hills for the downhill ride, this experience was thrilling, beautiful scenery, great background information and patience for the slow ones like me. I would recommend anyone and everyone to do this.... More

Visited this in the summer, it does what it says on the tin. An easy downhill bikeride that helps you to appreciate Catalonia for what it really is. Our Dutch tour guide gave us a very interesting talk on the tension between Catelonia and the State and included this to El Clasico which I found interesting. I haven't forgotten what... More

We then had some practice and instruction in how to use the mountain bikes.After this we were driven up in to the hills of Salou and given our bikes. There... More

Only regret we had was that we could only make the half day rather than the full. Great way to get out from the tourists areas and see the hills around Salou. Enjoyed it as experienced cyclists but they really do cater for all abilities. Rob is a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. If you are in Salou this is a... More

Did the half day bike ride, not only did we cover 20+ KM on the bike, but we covered years of history. Rob + Jelle were not only a great laugh and kept us entertained but demonstrated a great passion for the area which was demonstrated through a huge knowledge of the area. Its a great activity for all ages,... More
