Tour de France • VIP access

Pyrenees Spectator

July 2nd – July 7th, 2020 • non-cycling

Our packages with VIP access let you live the greatest races in cycling from the inside. Imagine riding across the finish line on closed roads with crowds cheering you on, climbing the official podium or taking a selfie with your favorite rider! You've dreamed of a trip to the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia or the Vuelta a España; we can help you make it happen in the comfort of VIP venues!

This is a non-cycling trip that focuses on the mountains of the Pyrenees. We will enjoy VIP access to the race at the start, along the course and at a stage finish. In addition to the viewing of the race, on stage 7, we will be able to get pictures on the podium before viewing the finish of the stage from the Izoard VIP area close to the finish line. A highlight of the trip will be visiting team hotels on the rest day. This allows you to see the riders in a more relaxed environment as they leave or return from their practice ride. If we’re lucky, we may get a water bottle or a mechanic tour from the team.

In addition to the mountains of the Pyrenees, we will end the trip in Bordeaux, home to some of the most prestigious vineyards in the world. We will enjoy a wine tour and tasting at one of the many vineyards.

Welcome to France

Our hotel is located on the outskirts of town and an easy drive from the Airbus factory.

The welcome dinner will give us time to get acquainted with our fellow group members and the guides will review the plan for the coming days. Each guest will receive a gift from le Tour and from Custom Getaways. You will also receive a discount card for 25% off official le Tour merchandise and the ever popular official road book.

The group will have some free time in the morning before making our way to the town of Lavaur where today’s stage will finish. You will have the VIP opportunity to experience walking across the finish line as well as standing on the official podium and getting pictures.

After pictures, we will enter the Izoard VIP venue, located near the finish line. The venue offers snacks, drinks, beer, TVs, air conditioning and private restrooms. It is a great way to see the race as the pros pass right in front of you!

Day 03

We begin the day at the start village near Toulouse. Our start village VIP pass will allow us access to the sponsor area with food and coffee, preferred access to the sign-in stage and “behind the ropes” access to the team bus area. This is your best chance to see riders up close and get pictures!

After lunch, we will transfer to our hotel in the city of Lourdes. You will have time to stroll around the city before we meet for a group dinner.

Day 04

VIP viewing in Relais Etape

Date Sunday, July 5 Hotel Location Lourdes

Today we drive into the Pyrenees to view the race along the course in a VIP venue called Relais Etape. We will be served a 4-course meal with wine and other beverages. The caravan/parade will pass about an hour before the racers pass and will throw out prizes to build the energy. This venue also has private restrooms, a gift from le Tour and TV’s to view the action until the racers pass directly in front of us.

After the end of the stage, we will head back to our hotel in the heart of Lourdes. Tonight you’re on your own to explore the town and grab dinner with some new friends.

Day 05

Visit team hotels and wine tour in Bordeaux

Date Monday, July 6 Hotel Location Bordeaux

Today we drive out of the Pyrenees and toward Bordeaux.  On the way, we will stop at a few team hotels and see the racers leave on their practice ride. This is a great opportunity to see the riders in a more relaxed environment. If we’re lucky, the team mechanics might even give out official team water bottles.

After the team hotel, we will drive north to a winery for a tour and tasting. The wines from the Bordeaux region are recognized as the best in the world. Learn why these wines can last over 50 years.

We will stay the night in Bordeaux and enjoy a farewell dinner with our new friends.
