TESTIMONIALS

Please read below for some first hand accounts from guests who have cycled their way across Europe with Sierra Sports & Tours. We look forward to meeting and working with our new cycling groups in 2017!

Jodie, Mansfield, VIC (2016): Spring Classics, Belgium & France
This was an amazing trip, thank you Paul. From the rides to the organization. All the attention to the details that make it an awesome trip were there. We look forward to doing another adventure with you in the future. Bravo!

Jenny, Griffith, NSW (2016): Tour de France
We enjoyed everything about the trip, the towns, the hotels we stayed in were great choices, and of course experiencing the different stages of the Tour de France. I think you lads do a great job and handle the different personalities with ease and calm.  We would certainly like to experience another cycling tour with you and will recommend you to anyone who is thinking of doing a cycling holiday.

John, Sydney, NSW (2016): Tour de France
Thanks again Paul.I am already dreaming of what my next trip will be.

Julie, Esperance, WA (2016): La Vuelta, Spain
Can't recommend the tour highly enough! Fabulous cycling, fabulous scenery, fabulous food, fabulous racing.

 

Janet, Perth, WA (2016): Asturias, Spain
Thx Paul for another fantastic tour, we were so well looked after that when we were dropped at the airport we all looked at each other and thought " what do we do now?! Thx to Jorge, Luis and Jens...you make a formidable team.

 

David, Mornington, VIC (2015): La Vuelta, Spain
I did my first serious cycling tour with Sierra in Spain and the experience was fantastic – great scenery and cycle routes that went to places off the beaten track to see the real Spain as well as riding through iconic towns full of culture and history, and we got up close to La Vuelta on the final 5 days for some memorable experiences. The organization was first rate – the van and cycling support, the accommodation, food and wine, and the overall thought that went into making the week not just a cycling event but a great tourist experience. The cycling experience and knowledge of our tour hosts, Paul and Andrea, was my other highlight helping me to learn much more about cycling and myself.

 

Carole, Shepparton, VIC (2015): Austria / Slovenia / Italy
I have travelled with Sierra Sports and Tours to two world championship triathlons, and a Slovenia bike tour, and I would recommend this professional crew with the highest regard. There is not one detail that is missed so you really can relax knowing you are in good hands. As an athlete preparing for a race, or as a tourist enjoying the countryside from two wheels, this is invaluable. Paul's local knowledge and contacts ensured stress free race week preparation, as well as unforgettable riding and dining experiences for the bike tour. Definitely put a Sierra Sports tour or two or three on your bucket list

 

Alan, Mont Albert, VIC (2015): Spanish & French Pyrenees
Sierra really has the European expertise and provides an authentic experience for the Aussie traveller. It was great to see the different parts of Spain and France on bike, enjoy the variety of dining experiences and interact with the locals through PaulŽs contacts. Travelling with Sierra makes it much easier to enjoy the holiday knowing the tour package gives us safety on the road and during our free time as well once we are off the bikes. 

 

Chris, Armatree, NSW (2015): Spanish Pyrenees
I really enjoyed my Spanish cycling trip as Paul and Jorge were both very knowledgeable about the area, the history and the cycling in general. Paul runs a very good show, his Spanish is excellent, not a lot of Spanish have good English so this is important. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Sierra Sports.

 

Michael, Port Melbourne, VIC (2015): Motala, Sweden
From the moment that Paul and his team, met me and my fellow competitors at the airport, everything fell into place. The most compelling reason for me to use Sierra Sports & Tours was to ensure that I did not have to worry about anything in a foreign country so I could enjoy my experience to the highest level. Sierra Sports & Tours managed to exceed my expectations in all respects. Clearly if you want to get away and enjoy your planned break, I would recommend Sierra Sports & Tours as your key partner for a successful trip. Paul and his team are knowledgeable on what they do and very professional.

 

Peter, Griffith, NSW (2014): Giro dŽItalia
When you have 16 crazy cyclistŽs from Australia who want to cycle Europe, Who do you call? Paul from Sierra Sports. Great Giro schedule with no downtime, amazing cycling captured memories which will never be forgotten, incredibly well balanced with fantastic wine, food and companionship. An experience that has us returning for more!

 

Phillip, Melbourne (2014): Pyrenees Challenge
If you want the ride of your life and a challenge the "Pyrenees Challenge" is the tour for you. Sierra provided me with the most fantastic and well organized experience one could hope for. We rode constantly through scenic countryside on very quiet Spanish and French roads. Culminating in a ride to the top of the Tourmalet. Then we relaxed afterwards daily with a drink, and watched the Tour de France live on TV, followed by a great meal. I highly recommend you try "Sierra Sports & Tours" for a hassle free European Holiday.

 

Damian, Melbourne (2014): Spring Classics, Belgium, Holland & France
Thanks Paul & Crew for the bucket list trip of a lifetime! The Ronde & Roubaix sportives were beyond incredible, thanks for the logistics and support, it made me feel ever so slightly pro knowing you & the crew had my back in case of any issues and the dream was alive for a short while! It was a very special trip. Paterberg, Koppenberg, Kwaremont, Cauberg, Bosberg, Arenberg & Carrefour de lŽArbre I never dreamed I would get the chance to ride them, just incredible. What more can I say, I have De Ronde, Paris Roubaix, Amstel, Fleche & Liege all safely on my Foxtel box and watching them brings back incredible memories and a sense of de ja vu! Did it really happen? Thanks again for a truly wonderful time.

 

Leigh, Melbourne (2014): Giro dŽItalia
The Giro itself was a highlight far more than I expected. It was great seeing the riders up close and the amount of access at the track and on the road I found amazing. The group was a lot of fun, the tour was a great experience. The riding, the tour guides, the Giro I can’t wait to come back. 

 

Ian, ACT (2014): Giro dŽItalia
I'm unaware of the other ex-pros you use for your tours, but if they are half as good as Andrea, you are very lucky. He was exceptional, be it with hotel and restaurant staff, planning rides, ushering riders up hills, explaining Italian customs and recalling his pro riding days. He was just great to have around. Adding to our cycling tour experience were evening visits to a spectacular mountain top lake near Canazei and to a secluded Prosecco wine bar another time. I have already recommended you to a couple of mates.


John, Sydney (2013): Pyrenees Challenge, Spain & France
Perfect for the 3 Peaks rider or anyone that wants to experience the famous climbs of the French & Spanish Pyrenees themselves. The scenario was stunning and a real bonus to join up with like minded cyclists from Spain, Columbia and even Poland in a cyclo-sportive style event. Whilst the cycling was challenging there was still plenty of time at the end of the day to celebrate the day's achievements in style and Pamplona during the Running of the Bulls festival was simply incredible. 


Curt, Melbourne (2012): La Vuelta, Spain
Just a quick note to say thanks for all your work on the Vuelta tour. It well and truly lived up to expectations and then some.

Vince, Queensland (2013): World Triathlon Champs, France
I would like to recommend Sierra Sports to anyone who is interested in having an exciting holiday guided by friendly and knowledgeable staff who do everything possible to make your holiday as great as it can be. They are fun individuals who work hard at making your holiday stress free and adventure filled. Go with them. I think they are excellent.


Jos & Judy, Melbourne (2013): Giro dŽItalia, Italy
Hi Paul, We would like to thank you and Andrea for a wonderful Giro dŽItalia. Judy and I couldnŽt have faulted your attention to detail. We were made to feel very welcome and treated to some amazing experiences. Every day is etched into our minds.

John, Sydney (2013): World Triathlon Champs, France
Thank you very much Paul and thanks to Fabrice too! You guys were fantastic guides and support and I really appreciate everything you did for us. We couldnŽt have had such a successful event without you.

Andrew, Melbourne (2013): Tour de France, France
Hi Paul, Thanks for a wonderful experience. ItŽs one Jack and I will never forget and you and your team were fantastic.


Grant, Victoria (2013): Giro dŽItalia, Italy
The experience, enthusiasm and expertise from Sierra Sports was obvious from the moment I was collected in Venice. Sierra Sports is a very professional outfit. The Willier hire bikes to the accommodation and meals were better than I could have asked for. I am so glad I decided to ride the 2013 Giro tour with Sierra Sports & Tours. I do intend riding on your TDF tour next year.

Gary, Queensland (2013), Pyrenees Challenge, Spain/France
Thanks again for the tour. You guys did an amazing job. Had a great time and would do it all again.

Lee-Anne, Perth (2013): World Triathlon Champs, France
Thanks again for the training ride Paul. It made a huge difference to my race!!

Todd, Melbourne (2013): Tour de France, Spain/France
From doing the Peyresourde to the iconic Tourmalet our team was well looked after thanks to our good friends at Sierra Sports & Tours!

Cyrma, Melbourne (2012): World Triathlon Champs, Spain

Thanks to the Sierra guys. It was awesome to be a part of the World Championships but it was made truly extraordinary by the wonderful guys at Sierra. I have made friends and memories that will stay with me forever. Thank you for being the generous and fun guys you are. I hope to come and cycle some mountains with you in the years to come!


Cadeyrn, Melbourne (2011): Altitude Training, Spain

Big thanks Paul for all your hard work organising everything from access to the world class high altitude training centre in the beautiful Sierra Nevada to the many hours spent patiently handing out ice cold drinks from the van window as I rode the course leading up to the Triathlon Titan race. First Class!

Jermone & Sandra  Belgium (2010): Sierra Nevada, Spain

What a pleasure! Paul arranged everything for our 5 day hiking trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains. Sierra Sports has the experience to plan and arrange everything you need. Really I recommend them if you want to enjoy the most awesome trip of your life that's the way to go !!

George, Adelaide (2011): Tour de France, Spain/France

Paul, I would like to thank you and your support team for the great riding days through the tour stages of the Pyrenees. The rolling hills of the Salvagnac region were great as well. It was so good knowing that your English, French & Spanish speaking crew definitely made my stay enjoyable and worry-free. Definitely will do this again.


John, Queensland (2012): World Triathlon Champs, Spain

I would like to thank you again Paul for looking after me on the tri trip. It would not have been the same without your help and organization. Your personal input was fantastic and your staff could not be faulted. I could not recommend your tour company highly enough, and will promote your business with our cycling group here in Central Queensland.


Leisa, New South Wales (2012): World Tri Champs, Spain
Hi Paul, It's a wee bit sad, our last night in Spain! What a great time we have had, many thanks to you. Thanks for the awesome time you provided for all, you have a great business venture, that will be a huge success to you. You have left everyone with great memories of Vitoria.


Jarrod, Victoria (2012): World Triathlon Champs, Spain
Sierra Sports & Tours offers a highly professional service, from initially booking the tour all the way through to its completion. Paul had a fantastic team and everything was taken care of, their knowledge of northern Spain and culture was a key benefit. Paul and his team exceeded my expectations on many occasions and all we had to do was relax and focus on the race.


Henrik Meyer, Denmark (2010): Sierra Nevada, Spain
Paul thanks for putting together our cycling and walking trip to Andalusia. The flexibility to combine the two suited us perfectly. Thanks for all your efforts and please contact us if you ever come to Denmark.
