Myself and my 20yr old daughter decided to do the Downhill Bike experience and it was great. We go tpicked up at our hotel then taken to a practice area where we got sized up for our bikes and had a wee cycle just to get the feel of them. We were then taken up into the hills/mountains and basically... More

Our children weren't too keen to leave the hotel pool but we prized them away for this half day tour of the beautiful Catalonian mountains. Firstly, this is a family run business so no pick ups in large coaches and and several hotels with commentary in several languages. Our driver simon picked us up in a small van and took... More

Our family of 3 adults including myself, sister and one of my daughters and three children all aged 12, nephew and twin grandchildren booked this excursion through the First Choice Tour Rep whilst staying at El Paso Hotel and some of the party only came along for the ride! Excuse the pun. However after pick up and getting our bikes,... More

This was such a fantastic experience. What a brilliant idea the boys came up with as a holiday excursion. Totally unique in the beautiful Catalonia mountains. A full history lesson about the local area, with a real taste cycling down through the villages of how the locals live. What a difference to the main area of Salou, this was the... More

What a superb day, or should I say half a day, just wish we had done the full day! Always slightly apprehensive on these sorts of excursion’s but my doubts were put at rest within the first 10-15 minutes. Professionally run & very safety conscious. I think this was the easiest cycling I’ve done in a long time, probably due... More

Was apprehensive as I hadn't been on a bike for 55 years but the pre-ride training was first class. A really friendly and knowledgeable team put us through a pre-ride training and safety session. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely do the full day next year. I would recommend pre-booking this on line as it was fully... More

This was a great way to spend an afternoon whilst on holiday in Salou. There were some magnificent views on the route and we were lucky enough to see an eagle! Rob, Simon and Yella were very thorough, good fun and knew a lot about the area. Would recommend taking a few Euros for the caramelised nuts as they are... More

This is the second time me and my family have done the downhill biking in Salou and it has to be said it was still as exciting and enjoyable as the first year, if not better. We were picked up from our hotel in La Pineda by Simon, who was a warm and friendly person and interested in what you... More

Something different from pools and waterparks. Rob and Simon were great fun and informative about the local area. Great emphasis put on safety with a practice run first and familiarisation of the bikes. Me and my daughter (10 years old) had a great day. Rob was hilarious and never stopped talking!
