This is one of the best ways to get a taste of all elements of the Catalan Countryside and Coast. We went on a self guided trip and from start to finish this has been a 5 star, top class, quality service from Mark & Shelley. Picked up in a lovely new VW van, provided with excellent bikes and all of the spares, tools and equipment you need should you run into difficulty. Even at that, you are safe in the knowledge that Mark & Shelley are only a phone call away. The app is very good and the routes were awesome with some really good stop off points for Wineries, Food sampling and Museums. Mark & Shelley were superb hosts and are such naturally nice, genuine friendly people. We had a lovely couple of drinks with them on the last day which was like sitting with 2 old friends. Their resilience to have stuck with the business after starting it up just before the Covid pandemic is a testament to their determination. We wish them all the best in the future and hope that the business flourishes for them in the years to come.

This vacation was planned pre-pandemic and rescheduled three times so my husband and I were thrilled to finally be able to go on our adventure. Mark and Shelley were so understanding with each reschedule, and helped us find a way to make it work. The trip was as magical as we'd hoped. Our bikes were in perfect condition. I rode an e-bike and I highly recommend one for the Mountain to Sea route. The hotels are absolutely top tier. Each one was so special in unique ways, and we looked forward to returning each day. With our luggage taken care of, our hotel accommodations booked, and our routes planned along beautiful cycling paths that largely avoided roadways, we were able to relax and fully enjoy the adventure of exploring a country by bike! If you only visit Catalonia once in your life, this is the trip to go on.

Fantastic trip. We just returned from the "Mountains to Sea" cycle trip and had an absolutely great trip. Mark and Shelly went out of the their way to make sure everything went smooth. We added a few days at the end of our trip and they accommodated all of our requests which made our trip even better. 90+% of the riding was on very well maintained trails with no cars. Navigation App worked great. Accommodations were super and the meals at La Rectoria were outstanding. This is our second bike trip with Cycle Catalan and we will be back for more.

We have just returned form an amazing weeks walking holiday with Cycle Catalan. From start to finish the experience was great. Shelly and Mark go out of there way to ensure all guests have the best experience. Oh and a shout out to Lex for picking us up at the end of a few walks thanks. We saw some amazing countryside, medieval villages. And stunning beaches as we took on 5 beautiful walks. All walks differed in length and challenge with a good mix across our weeks stay. Would highly recommend this holiday.

Well-organised, with a super mix of routes and destinations - mountains, inland villages, beautiful Girona and stunning coastline. It was to great to be mainly on cycle tracks, so could concentrate on enjoying the views - in particular the colourful fields. Warm hospitality and lovely hotels, in especially La Rectoria. Mark was very helpful
