For the most dedicated cycling fans who would join the Tour de France if they only had the skills, Sports Tours International is offering a VIP viewing tour and package that may be the next best thing.

As an official tour operator of the 2018 Tour de France, Sports Tours International is gearing up to bring guests along a 24-day journey to experience the entire race from the Tour’s Grand Depart on July 7, 2018 to its finale in Paris on July 29. Throughout the race, guests of Sports Tours International will have access to 21 stages that will grant them perfect views of the cyclists zooming by, including in some of the most challenging parts of the race through the Alps and the Pyrenees. On several of the viewing stages, guests will also have access to the Izoard hospitality area and the Village Depart area, giving them a chance to meet the athletes and their teams. After watching the pros on their bikes, guests can get their own cycling fix with daily guided bike rides and a Sports Tours International cycling jersey, all included with the package.

Pricing for the full 24-day tour is $5,778 pp dbl and includes 24 nights accommodation with all taxes, daily breakfasts and secure bike storage; seven in-hotel dinners; airport transfers from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport; all transfers to and from the stages; and the official 2018 Tour de France welcome pack and road book.

For enthusiasts who can’t join for the full 24-day experience, Sports Tours International also offers a range of shorter trips that still get close to all the action.
