My daughter and I had a great 4 days of adventure, cycling from Villavociosa to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Xavier did a great job handling two very different riders! My daughter, a young experienced athlete and myself a cycling novice. The hotels and locations he selected were wonderful! Xavier customized our trip to our needs.I would truly recommend BikeBasque to anyone wanting to bike in Europe. I hope to be back.

We did a three day trip to check L'etape do Tour two weeks before the race. Xavier found time to fit us into his schedule and was a great guide and support. Looking forward for a cycling camp with Bike Basque.

Super experience on the Classic Cols tour, small group but very friendly and flexible routes, Xavier did a superb job looking after us - which was important as I brought along my son, Nick, the youngest ever guest of Bike Basque. Easily best value trip I found in alps or Pyrenees but still in nice hotels. Highly recommended, my son already wants to come back!

Just back from Ben's 40th Bike Basque tour. Hossegor to San Seb to Lekeitio to Bilboa. Amazing riding country, Xavier built the route around our desire to blend some good cycling with the odd cerveca in the evening...All in all a fantastic few days, we will be back next year, and I would thoroughly recommend Xavier and BikeBasque to any cyclist of any standard. Thanks again Xavier!

Completed a fantastic 3 day ride organised by Xavier at Bike Basque. Completely organised everything around what we wanted to do, and where we wanted to be on saturday night....the answer is always San Sebastian in case you're wondering. The route included some great but not too killer climbs, the best days riding i have ever had along the Euskadi coast, and seeing some great places on the way like Gernika. If you want to discover a fantastic part of the world, and do some awesome riding spend some time with Xavier....
