We chose Echelon for our very first cycle tour and what a good choice it was. We cycled through some of the most wonderful countryside in Alentejo, at a pace that suited us; middle-aged, rather unfit and without a huge amount of cycling experience. Those that wanted to go faster or cycle for longer were able to thanks to Echelon’s wonderful team of guides who somehow managed to cater to all the group’s needs. The hotels were amazing and welcome havens after a day in the saddle, with all our requests met by charming staff. We hope to be able to return for another Echelon experience in the near future.
