Group Traveller

My husband and I have done 3 self guided tours (Cordoba-Granada, Wild Atlantic Way and Mallorca) and we convinced another couple to join us for 2 of them. We’re now planning 3 more. Every trip was perfect beyond expectations – great routes, charming hotels, excellent staff support both before and during the trips. It’s honestly the only time in my life that I feel 100% care free. Riding a bike all day with friends and then ending at a lovely spot where your bags are waiting – there’s nothing like it. That little voice in the back of your head, constantly reminding you of things you have to do, simply stops. If I’m not ON a ride, I’ll be planning the next one.

The cycling tour was better than we had hoped, planned or expected. The hotels were especially a treat and after a ride. A couple of the routes are not well sign posted or detailed – these need updating and we will send some of our notes to the providers in Spain. It was all so good we are considering a cycle in Italy next June. thanks alot for organising it all
