Stefano T.

Tour Guide

Experience

Stefano was born in a small town close to Monte Zoncolan on the border of Slovenia. He first conquered Zoncolan at the age of 11. From then on, along with is father, he knew that he would be spending a lot of time on his bike. Almost going Pro, Stefano was forced to give up his dream after a bad fall which took him 2 years to recover from. By the time he was 100% he had missed his chance, hence took his skills to coaching juniors, supporting para-athletes at Olympic Games and guiding through his local area. Its great to have Stefano as part of the team and expanding our Italian and Slovenian tours
