ExperiencePlus! Bicycle Tourslogo

No North American company has been running European cycling tours longer than ExperiencePlus! Bicycle Tours (http://www.experienceplus.com/). Launched in Italy in 1972 the Colorado-based company now offers global cycling tours immersed in local character to 20 countries on five continents. Throughout the years as the business and industry has evolved ExperiencePlus! roots as a family business have remained strong. Authentic, experienced, self-paced and engaging were the ethos of parents Rick and Paola Malpezzi Price which have now been passed down to their daughters and current directors Monica and Maria Elena Price.

Standing behind their beliefs, ExperiencePlus! is the only adventure cycling company that issues a 10-point Customer’s Bill of Rights outlining what clients can and should expect while pedaling on a company tour. Their cultural cycling programs engage tour leaders who are expert cyclists and trained cultural interpreters, guiding guests on innovative routes and immersing them in off-the-beaten-path experiences. Tours in 2011 go to Argentina, Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, France, Greece, Hungary, India, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA and Vietnam.

ExperiencePlus! pays it forward each year with donations to select charities and social initiatives. In 2011 the company will donate a portion of client trip fees to the Adventure Cycling Association for their work on the United States Bicycle Route System and the Federazione Italian Amici dell Bicicletta that influences the Italian government on promoting bicycle safety in Italy.

ExperiencePlus! is a 2010 recipient of National Geographic Traveler magazine’s 50 Tours of a Lifetime for its Cycling the Camino de Santiago: Roncesvalles to Santiago adventure. Recognized for her visionary work within the industry, Monica Price has been named to the Adventure Travel Trade Association Advisory Committee for the 2011 Adventure Travel World Summit to be held October 17-20 in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.

Testimonials (3)

  1. Reviewer: located in Asheville, NC USA
    "I felt I had the best benefits of a group tour - logistics, preplanning, support during the day, luggage handling, meeting new people - and the benefits of independent travel, in that I could ride on my own, at my own pace, and see the towns we stayed at as I saw fit, without being stuck with a group if I did not want to. A hard balance to achieve, but achieved it was."

    "Your system of chalk arrows is by far the very best method that we have ever seen for marking a cycling route. It would have been totally unnerving to try to read directions and be aware of traffic."

Our commitment to sustainable travel

As countries around the world contemplate their sustainability policy and performance plan, we here at ExperiencePlus! are doing the same. Our company culture and policies have always tried to consider the environment and social impact of what we do and we thought we’d share what that means to you, our travelers.  

Our Fort Collins office has been a part of the city’s Climate Wise program since 2007 and through that program we’ve measured and set goals to improve our use of things like: kwatts (from wind powered energy); Mbtus; (and much easier to understand) we reward employees for commuting to work by bike or on foot. In both Italy and Fort Collins we’ve significantly reduced our use of paper; use green cleaning products; Energy Star lighting choices, composting and recycling. Italy takes it further by growing a garden to supplement communal lunches and by telecommuting during the off season.

Our sustainability statement for our tours is as follows:
At ExperiencePlus! we strive to provide travel experiences that increase cultural engagement and support local economies while minimizing the miles traveled in vehicles and maximizing the miles traveled by bicycle.
