Why Choose Us?

Custom Getaways is a small, family-owned business that offers a high level of customer service.  When you email or call Custom Getaways, you usually are communicating directly with Vince or Angie Sellers, the owners of the company.

We are proud to be an Official Tour Operator for the following events:

  • Tour de France: Custom Getaways is the longest running Official Tour Operator for the Tour de France…2025 will be our 23rd year! We are also one of only three premium partners of the Tour which allows us to choose VIP access for our guests on the most demanded stages (beware of imitators and ask specific questions about the Tour operator’s experience).
  • Vuelta a Espana:  Official Tour Operator for the Vuelta a Espana
  • Gran Fondo Etape du Tour:  Official Tour Operator for the Etape du Tour
  • Ride Across Portugal:  Ride from the north of Portugal to the end of the continent on this trip with 6 days of cycling in spectacular landscapes.

When traveling with us you can expect:

  • Manageable group sizes with experienced guides
  • In-depth knowledge of the destinations and cultures from our experienced, bilingual staff members
  • Prompt and personalized service from your first contact with us to the end of your trip

Our cycling trips are second to none and are flexible to accommodate anyone: from the performance cyclist to the more casual riders. We do allow non-cycling partners on our cycling trips. Our spectator trips cater to cycling fans who wish to enjoy VIP access to the race without riding.

Both our cycling and non-cycling trips offer the best VIP access to the race due to our status as a Premium Tour Operator for the Tour de France. Trips range in duration from just a few days to entire events. We offer the largest selection of trips for cyclists and for spectators. We also offer custom trips and the widest selection of One Day VIP experiences.

Our experience with Europe is the best in the industry. Most of our guides live in Europe and the owners, who create the trips, spend months every year traveling there. Our extensive network of local sources and connections to the racing world enables us to accommodate just about any request.
