FAQ

Here are some 'frequently asked questions' from users of Cycle Tours Global.

What do the levels (Easy through to Challenging) used for the filters actually mean? Are there standard definitions?
The level is usually determined by the tour operator so many vary slightly between tours. However the reason behind this filter is to give cyclists a general idea - using this filter is optional.
What is the difference between the different types of support?
This is defined by the individual operators but generally guided means a guide (and usually support vehicle) will accompany the riders throughout the tour, self guided means there is usually no guide but there is support (e.g. transport of luggage) to and from pre-booked accommodation - unsupported means the rider is responsible for carrying their own luggage or equipment.
Why do I have to register to post a review?
Cycle Tours Global needs to ensure as far as possible that reviews are genuine with no spam or loading of reviews or artificial inflation of ratings by unscrupulous parties. The registration process is pretty simple - we only ask for minimal details to confirm you are a real person!
How do I book a tour?
Bookings need to be made directly with the tour operator and you can either contact them directly from the tour listing page or click through to their website.
What sort of tours are classed under 'Sports'?
These are tours that are built around events in which you either participate (e.g.a Cyclesportive or Gran Fondo) or watch the professionals (e.g. Tour de France, Giro, Vuelta, TDU, spring classics etc.). The latter usually include rides in the local area, or even on the course.
