On the Trek Press Camp this july, Hermosa Tours guided all four rides for about thirty members of the media and of the company. I got to experience their work as they designed four rides that would give us a good taste of the area as well as test the two new bikes in Trek/Fisher line up.
Hermosa Tours is a high-end, all-inclusive bike guide outfit that will pick you up at the airport, put you up at a hotel, shuttle, guide and feed you. Their objective is to take care of everything so all you have to do is pedal and enjoy what the area has to offer.
Logistically, our group was a nightmare. There were 20+ journalists arriving at different times from all corners of the globe and they had to be shuttled to and from four different hotels. There were four rides in four days and everyone had to be set up with equipment and fed.
I am happy to report that the rides went off without a hitch. Our crew rode and rode and experienced some of the best Durango had to offer. The Hermosa crew Nate, Matt, Pete and Mike were constantly on the phone and on the radio. They ensured everyone was accounted for and had a good time.
Hermosa specializes in 5 days Tours like the Durango High Country Tour for $1895. They pick you up at the airport and take care of everything. Someday soon, I hope to try out this tour and document the whole affair. But seeing their work in the press tour of Trek gives me confidence that they can handle anything with a smile.

Nate always kept the group informed and kept in constant contact with his crew to ensure everyone was having a great time
