In the cities we use tourist class hotels, all of a good standard and in central locations. Some cities charge a tourist tax. These taxes are not included in the sale price of the tour and must be paid directly by the customer at check in or check-out at the hotels. This fee varies depending on the hotel category, the season and number of days of stay. It is usually between 2 and 4 euros per person per night.

Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. B-grade off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances on road trips rarely exceed 70 kms (43 miles) per day.
