As an "Official Tour Operator" of the Giro d'Italia, Grand Tours Project is in a special position to deliver the ultimate experience for passionate cyclists. Our 2019 tours are now open for early bookings. We are the experts in guiding passionate cyclists in riding every kilometre of this amazing race, on the same day as the event, just a few hours ahead of the pros. We're also experts in guiding a more relaxed tour in each week of the race (70-100km each stage). Join us for a cycling holiday of a lifetime at "the toughest race in the world’s most beautiful place – Italy"

With our "Ride Every Km" tours, we're offering the opportunity to ride the entire route - every, single kilometre. You can choose to ride 3, 6, 9 or all 21 stages. You will need to be a strong cyclist to achieve this challenge, but you don't need to be an elite athlete ... ours is a journey, not a race, and we'll leave enough time on each day to enjoy our lunch breaks and photo stops. Once we cross the finish line each day, we'll sit back and watch the race as the "fight for pink" takes place only a couple of hours after us.

If this tour is a bit too challenging for you, then join us on one of our more relaxed "Experience" tours, as we ride 70-100km on each of the 6-9 stages of the race. You will have more time to watch the race at the finish line, visit the VIP zones, enjoy poolside drinks at the hotel, and explore the village we're staying in each evening.

There are very limited spaces on these tours - with a maximum of 14 riders on each tour, supported by 2 expert guides and 2 drivers / mechanics. This small group will ride together and will always have the support van close by – with drinks, snacks and dry clothing. 
Riding on the race course just a few hours before the pros, with the support of the crowds and our team, makes this an unforgettable experience.
