Why Choose Us

Over 30 years’ experience says it all…

Oro Tours brings you several decades’ experience planning and running family cycling tours to destinations such as Bavaria, Austria’s Enn Valley, Italy’s South Tyrol, Croatia’s Istrian peninsula and the beautiful countryside between Slovenia’s Julian Alps and Ljubljana.

Oro Tours should be your first choice of cycling holiday for the following reasons:

  • Our long experience is second to none. Over more than 30 years, our founder Stephen Bent has been responsible for taking thousands, if not tens of thousands, of cyclists away for amazing cycling holidays in Europe. Anyone can say your cycling holiday was designed by experts. Ours really are!
  • We do the hard work so you don’t have to – from planning your travel and holiday documentation, to detailed route planning and arranging wonderful superior accommodation. All you have to do is travel, at your pace, and enjoy the experience…
  • We know our destinations, our routes, the local culture and your accommodation inside out. We’ve ridden your holiday route several times, so we’re ideally positioned to guide you along it. What’s more, a network of trusted local representatives on the ground has unbeatable experience of making our cycling holidays run smoothly as a well-oiled chainset…
  • Everything about our holidays is flexible, from the duration to being able to add on holiday time before or after your tour. Even the daily stages of our holidays are remarkably flexible. Think ‘your cycling holiday, your way’ (but with our help).
  • We put massive effort into choosing and testing our bikes and cycling equipment for your safety, comfort and holiday pleasure.
  • We’re a small but professional family business that can relate to what you want from a solo, couples or family cycling holiday.
