So much fun to do, and the guides were exemplary, keeping the group together, helping the whole way along and the value for money for what you got was amazing. Couldn't be happier with the experience.

Since there were six of us we knew we would need some activities to keep us occupied and came across the Mount Foia Downhill Cycle Tour. What can I say other than a very well organised, fun and very friendly trip. Just the right amount of work and rest for everyone to really enjoy it. It's taken me a month to write this review so I've forgotten the two guides names (sorry), but they were absolutely first class, very informative regarding their surroundings, and happy and friendly. Thoroughly recommend this

We booked the trip via our B&B in Silves (Tapada do Gramacho; also a wonderful place we can really recommend) and we didn't regret it at all!
Excellent material, wonderful views, good company, a delicious lunch on our way and very important: a guide who learned us a lot about the environment!
We would recommend this downhill cycling tour to all people, visiting the Algarve!
Thank you so much, Simonne & Bruno, Frie & Patrick, Tom & Ilse

By chance on the same tour as previous writer VMCCCC ....great trip, lunch en route. Good route, and excellent bikes. Family group all enjoyed the journey down, from a cloud capped top, to the sunny valley. Recommended. Very friendly and helpful hosts too.

Great team with very good gear.
The 45 km down hill route was a very nice way to see Algarve.
Our family with two boys of 11 and 13 found it exiting and want to come back for thr off road tour.
My wife also much enjoyed the ride. The Owner Frank was most helpful in organising the trip and kept us up-to-date based on the weather; we had to prospone twice because of rain (first rain in four months ) The lunch location / food was very nice too)
Thank you again! Victor

Hi Victor,

glad that in the end we could do the tour despite the weather. The weather is usually all sunny, but cycling all day in the rain on holiday isn´t the best idea.
Hope to see you again for the DH off-road trip soon.
regards, Frank

Such a great day (18 / 9) thanks to Tom and Mark and the rest of the group. Its a great route downhill along quiet roads and tracks. Lots of stops along the way to enjoy the glorious views, nature and lunch! This is a day I would thoroughly recommend and would definitely like to repeat on my next visit to the Algarve.

hi Gill,

Thanks for your kind words, I´ll bring it over to Thomas and Mark.

Yes we truly believe that the Serra de Monchique is a must see on everyones visit to the Algarve. And when you love cycling isn´t a bicycle tour the best way to do that? Especially when it is most of the way downhill :)

We hope to see you when you visit the Algarve again.

Bom Dia!
our famous Downhill Nature Trip interests experience cyclists but also ones that haven´t touched a bike for a long time.

I hope it has inspired you to go cycling more often, as it is the best way to soak in nature, fresh air and get some exercise.

best regards from Thomas and Mark,

Hired two MTB's for 4 days to get some exercise whilst away. Thomas and Frank provided a 15 mile route to tour the coastal roads and avoid the serious hills (we are 57 yrs old). Bikes were in excellent condition and we used them for daily excursions between bar stops. The area has many hidden hills which took their toll. Some great dirt tracks. Frank and Thomas collected the bikes on the last day of the hire which was much appreciated. Whilst maybe not ideal for general touring we will do the downhill on our next visit.

hello,

thanks for choosing us for the bike rental. Glad to see that the Giant 29-ers did a good job on the pub tours and on dirt tracks as well :)
We hope to see you again when you come over.

Best days of the holiday according to our 12 year old and I think the whole family agreed. We booked the sea kayak trip the first week and it was brilliant. Very easy to find and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice to have a support boat following us and ready to tow us back to shore on the way back! We didn't need it as the pace was fine. It does get VERY busy with people doing tours of the coves and grottos on motor boats and this was the only off putting part of the trip. You may be best taking the very early morning tour - I bet it's lovely. The second week we did the downhill mountain biking which was fantastic. The guides, Tomas and Michael, were really friendly and it was very relaxed. There were plenty of stops for water and rest which was much needed as it was hot - even if it was downhill the majority of the way. Amazing views from the highest point and on the way down- well worth going to this part of the Algarve. A lovely lunch was served in a great little village on the way down. Again, there is a support vehicle which follows which unfortunately we did need as our daughter took a nasty tumble off the bike and was badly grazed. Even with this mishap though, she really enjoyed it as we all did. Thanks for a great couple of days.
