»»»» Our bike tour, the Beautiful Alentejo Beaches, was outstanding, and the second we arrived our tour guides informative demeanor made this trip very comfortable. Beginning with port wine and raspberry cake at reception we immediately hit it off with our riding mates. The charming hotels with champagne breakfast started every day off on the right track. On each days ride our guides encompassing insights of Portuguese culture bound with historical references absorbed our spirit. The lunch stops with fresh farmers cheese and fruits ensured us that one more hill wasn't so bad and the afternoon beer stops motivated everyone of us to never stop smiling. Each nights hotel welcomed the end of a days ride as the beginning of a wonderful evening. The restaurants were a delightful mix of local food, wine and culture including a private tour of a port wine cellar. Starting out each day without expectations Jose and Christina exceeded them all. We would love to do this trip again. Thank You Very Much.

»»»» I just want to thank you for the best cycling tours I have ever done. It is an adventure I will remember for a life time. I don't know what I enjoyed more the beautiful scenery, awesome cycling, delicious food or the great guide and wonderful hostess. You are truly a top notch cycling tour Company. I recommend anyone that wants to see the best countryside that Portugal has to offer to do it with your Company. It far exceeded my expectations and was worth every cent. Thanks Again for a Wonderful Cycling Vacation! = Jerry LeVault – Age: 47 (Addison, ILLinois – U.S.A.), 2009 =
»»»» First and foremost, let me thank you once again for a wonderful vacation along The Beautiful Alentejo Beaches. As you are aware, I have travelled with several bicycle tour companies throughout Europe. I found PortugalBike to exceed the more expensive companies in personality, equipment, and feel for the local culture. The accommodations and food matched that of the more expensive tours. In general, Portugal was a beautiful country with some of the friendliest people I have met throughout Europe. I will enthusiastically recommend both this trip and your company.

»»»» Many thanks for a wonderful trip. Although the cycling was challenging at times, the coastal views made it all worthwhile! I felt truly pampered by the accommodations and there was certainly no excuse to lack energy for the next day’s ride when we ate such wonderful meals! You and Jose seem to have thought of everything to make this a very special trip: excellent bicycles, well-designed handlebar bags, bicycle pedals of our choice, snack bars, plenty of water, and a comfortable sag wagon! With Jose as our enthusiastic guide, we did, indeed, discover Portugal. What a beautiful and friendly country! I look forward to my next trip.

»»»» Thank you again for a wonderful adventure! You two did everything possible to make the bike tour a terrific experience and you have spoiled me. I have taken several other bike tours and now I know just what a really excellent tour should be like. The bikes, van, accommodations (I never expected the 4 star hotels), food, and all your extra services were first class. The scenery on the trip with the cliffs, beaches, long coastal views, and villages in a natural park setting was truly memorable. I was very comfortable and happy throughout the tour. I hope to return soon to join you on another tour. I am afraid that another company would disappoint me.

»»»» We have recently returned from a memorable bicycle tour of the Alentejo arranged by PortugalBike Tours. The west coast of Portugal is extraordinarily beautiful and unspoiled. PortugalBike Tours knows the area intimately and gave huge advantages over "outside tours". Owner and guide Jose and his charming wife Cristina are the ultimate hosts. They know the best local inns, restaurants, picnic spots, secluded beaches and scenic views. Their stated goal is to give the best possible holiday and they "deliver" to the highest standard.

»»»» Just have to thank you both for setting up the bike trip of a lifetime. The equipment was excellent, the route & GPS took us to places we could NEVER have found ourselves and of course Jose was like an angel, gently guiding and always there to catch us when we fell. We will highly recommend your company to anyone interested in discovering the heart of Portugal. = Mary Pat, Age: 54 (Toronto, Ontario – Canada), 2008 =
