A tour operator in the niche

In view of the increasing mergers of large tourism groups into even larger organizations, the fact that a significant proportion of German tourism is still organized by a large number of small and medium-sized tour operators is fading into the background in the public eye.

frankfurtBIKEtour and terranova in Frankfurt Sachsenhausen is one such example of an owner-operated, small company that is very successful as a tour operator in a market niche. terranova was founded in 1978 and is one of the pioneers of sophisticated cycle touring. For a long time now, the company's repertoire has also included city tours in Frankfurt and incentives. These are carried out under the brand frankfurtBiketour.com. A team specialized in Frankfurt and the surrounding area organizes all details around your cycling wishes in the Rhine-Main area.

The guests who are on the road with us,

The success of frankfurtBIKEtour.com and terranova is mainly based on the high-quality design of all tours and trips. Their characteristic is based on the concept of making quality, not primarily price, the central object of the offer. We avoid all echoes of mass tourism elements. It is particularly important to us to equip all tours with experiential content that conveys an emotional travel experience. This is how frankfurtBIKEtour.com and terranova consciously set themselves apart from most other tour companies.


The care taken in planning is unusually comprehensive

frankfurtBIKEtour.com uses around 400 of its own high-quality bicycles, which are maintained by the company's own workshop and by its own expert technicians. Bicycle transport trailers, specially designed for frankfurtBIKEtour.com and terranova, are available for transporting the bicycles on the trips. Each company excursion is accompanied by a Mercedes minibus with such a transport trailer if desired.

For the support of its guests one employs with frankfurtBIKEtour.com Guides, who are submitted to a careful selection procedure and prepared by the enterprise by training courses for the routes. In the course of a tour year approximately 45 to 55 coworkers accompany as Guides and tour leaders the city routes and journeys.

Differently than most German tour operator - enterprises, frankfurtBIKEtour.com and terranova do not operate in the corporate form of the GmbH., but as Kommanditgesellschaft. Thus the owner of the company Julian Zimmermann is personally and unrestrictedly liable. This corresponds to the personal commitment of the managing director, who occasionally also experiences practical customer proximity as a tour guide and who can thus also judge his trips from his own experience.
