We spent a week cycling in Girona and had the most amazing experience thanks to BikeCat and our incredible (and VERY local) guide Albert. We rented top quality Canyon bikes from them and we were thrilled with the quality. The bikes were set-up to our specs when we arrived so all we had to do was add our pedals and off we went. We chose a private guide experience which allowed us a lot of flexibility. Albert listened to what was important to us and created a unique experience with great variety for every day. We were a little challenging since we wanted to swim most days in addition to riding. Albert provided an opportunity for us to swim in the Mediterranean or a local lake on all of our rides! I have had friends use BikeCat for organized tours and they were also extremely happy with their experience. Most of their business comes through referrals and repeat business which says a lot about what they do.

We fell in love with Girona while cycling all around the area with guides Jaume and Josep. We rode for 5 days that included some great climbs, gorgeous scenery and the beautiful Costa Brava. The Bikecat shop was located in the historic area of the city, with great staff that were very attentive to customer service. The bikes that were provided were top quality and the latest models. Very comfortable to ride. We will go back again and definitely utilize the services of the Bikecat staff. We highly recommend Bikecat for any cycling adventure!

This was an absolutely incredible tour/trip. It was exceptionally well laid out, with a warm-up ride on Day 0, a relatively light ride on Day 1, and then lots of riding for the rest of the trip, averaging over 1100m of ascents daily. The views, landscape, riding conditions, support, food, etc. were all really fantastic. Jaume, Albert, Bernat and Jordi all took exceptional care of our group of 12 angry men (of varying abilities) to make it enjoyable for all. Paired with Michael Barry from Mariposa in Toronto--who adds a whole other dimension in terms of expertise, knowledge, and interest--it made for a really exceptional week. When I came back, I kept telling people that this was one of the best trips I've ever had. It does not surprise me at all that all 70 prior reviews were 5/5. I would also add that having meals included made it all very predictable. Giving us a couple of excluded meals was totally fine--it allowed us to go on our own if we wanted. A total treasure.

I just completed my first Bikecat tour with 7 pals from Calgary. It was my first bike trip of this kind and I was a little nervous about my ability to keep up. The tour was challenging, but very rewarding and the Bikecat guys (Jaume, Albert ans Bernat) were there to help at all times (including a quick fix when I had a flat tire). The biking experience exceeded all of my expectations. Travelling through towns and countryside dripping with history (and vines) was a thrill. We burned about 4000 calories a day, and we all got stronger as the trip wore on. Truth be told, we all probably would have come home stronger and lighter except that the food and wine were exceptional and we fully indulged :) Our trip included accommodation and most of our meals, so there was minimal extra expense and no ugly surprises. Riding out of multiple town sites made every ride a completely different experience, including vineyards, mountain passes, cliff side villages, monasteries, and beaches. The last night in Barcelona was also a treat! Can’t wait to see the Bikecat guys again. I would do this trip with Family, couples or another guys trip. Regardless of the group, I know we’d be in good hands. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you Bikecat :)

We (group of 8 fun loving riders from Calgary) spent 7 days in the Priorat wine region with Jaume and his team (Albert and Bernat were his other guides). This was our second tour with BikeCat (did Girona 6 years ago). The “wine tour” was a fantastic experience: the riding was epic (Road quality was fantastic, topography was awesome, traffic was minimal and scenery was exceptional). We did about 85K a day with about 1,500M of climbing - demanding but not crushing - and really enjoyed the rides. We rode out of three towns so saw lots of variety - ended the tour with two nights in Sitges on the Mediteranian so enjoyed some beach time as well. We were incredibly well hosted by Jaume, Albert and Bernat - they really know the area and are super nice people (and awsome riders). Bikecat included bfast, lunch and 4 dinners on a 6 day tour - food was exceptional and hotels were very good. We like to enjoy ourselves in the evenings and there was ample opportunity for fun and games after the rides. Can’t say enough good things about Jaume and the BikeCat Crew. We will be back!
