Most of our bookings are the result of referrals by riders who have been on one of our tours or they are repeat customers. We have clients who have now ridden all of our tours!
We do not advertise other than our Facebook posts.
So what our clients think about our tours is very important to us.
‘How do I begin to describe the best cycling experience I have ever had.
Geneva to Nice through the Alps with 4 days watching the Tour de France and the daily challenges of some of the most iconic climbs a cyclist can do (Joux Plane, Colombiere, Aravis, Cormet de Roseland, Madeleine, Galibier and so many more including the legendary Alpe d’Huez and finishing outside Nice with the Madone).
Then there are the people you ride with, the DCT team (Anthony, Rob, Peter) making it a first class experience and my fellow riders where simply great company off and on the bike.
What sticks in my mind was the scenery – over every climb and through every valley – it takes your breath away or maybe that was the climbing.
Then there are those special moments like deviating into Italy just to enjoy Italian coffee, the lunches every day consisting of the finest local produce, the walks around the villages we stayed at every day and the post dinner search for gelato’s.
Scenery, food, company, riding and the climbs – it doesn’t get any better than the DCT experience. I’m back next year for more of the same’. Greg
‘Hi Antony, Rob
I can’t believe it’s only 5 days since I was in Canazei. So cold here in Canberra and already working my butt off. Looking back I’m thinking Stelvio was THE day of the year for me. It had everything and it is such a spectacular brutal climb and we did it twice! Not to mention the sweep thru Switzerland before lunch.
I wanted to say how much I enjoyed the trip again this year. You guys do such a great job and your tours are fantastic. Each day was superb and only let down by the weather at times. Thanks so much for running the show in such a low key but professional and friendly manner. Thanks for helping me out so quickly re the broken bike. It made a pretty unfortunate problem trivial in the end. I’d love to try those Italian cols again before I’m too decrepit on a really light bike though.
This is what Evan said about his Tour Dolomiti:
‘Had an absolutely awesome time in the Dolomites. If you have not been yet you want to give these guys a call. Small groups, great people and epic riding. Thanks Rob, Tony, Peter and Henda’.
This is what Patrick had to say about his TDU tour:
These guys were well organised and knew their way around. They also know how to handle a bike. On one of the days, some of us rode over 200 km. It was a tough day, but Tony was there to help me get through it. Thanks mate 🙂
Thanks for a great trip and I’ll see you next year.
Jeremy did back to back tours and had this to say:
‘As a belated 40th present to myself, I rode through the breathtaking French Alps last July with Diamond Cycle Tours and I still haven’t wiped the smile off my face. The riding was simply sublime. And to be able to just ride on crazy smooth hot mix roads through amazing scenery, up iconic climbs and down WOOHOOOOO descents without having to think about anything else was all down to the fantastic organisation and support from DCT. All I had to do was wake up, devour fresh baked croissant and blueberry infused salami (OK there was cheese in there too!), take my bag to the truck, pick up my garmin with pre-loaded DCT route for the day and then ride…all day…just ear-to-ear enjoy the ride! The sun shone, the grass grew, the brooks babbled beside the road, the snow beckoned off the mountains, the birds sang and the cow bells rang. And what’s not to love about being cheered up the Alpe d’Huez by the adoring French spectators!!? The group was small, flexible, and a damn fine bunch of riders that bonded within the first 20k. Stories, occasional trash talking and belly laughs quickly followed. Lots of coffee moments in idyllic mountain villages and afternoons sharing a panache whilst enjoying the TdF on the telly. For any cyclist, it doesn’t get any better. A massive, massive thank you and well done to Tony, Rob and Pete. The whole thing could not have gone any smoother, your efforts made my experience effortless which just allowed me to soak it all up, the culinary delights were beyond imagination, and the spectacular memories will be forever. Chapeau!!’ Jeremy
