Two adventure travel bike tour operators, Tourissimo and Ride & Seek, have teamed up to offer a new selection of cycling itineraries called “Plus Tours.”

Tourissimo specializes in active travel in Italy, while Ride & Seek offers epic cycling adventures following historic routes in Europe.  Plus Tours combine these niche specialties to offer itineraries that emphasize cycling, history, and culture. 

The first itineraries will be in Puglia & Matera, in Basilicata and Friuli-Venezia Giulia and SloveniaBoth companies are committed to working with travel agents worldwide.

Beppe Salerno, the Founder of Tourissimo, and Ride & Seek founder Dylan Reynolds go back 20 years to their days as bike tour guides in Italy.

“Our companies specialize in very different things, with Ride & Seek focusing on culturally-focused multi-week tours and Tourissimo more of a soft adventure specialist,” Reynolds said.
