The best lunches that I've ever had on a holiday like this.
The service was friendly and helpful, with good information sent. The lunches were all excellent. Really good variety of delicious food and really good cakes and puddings. These are the best lunches that I’ve ever had on a holiday like this.My favourite day was the last day from Sintra along the coast. The views were fabulous and there was a good mix of singletrack with some swoopy and some technical in the mix. Really good fun. Our tour leader was extremely well organised and everything ran like clockwork. The other guides were cheerful and friendly and generally good.
Best organized trip I have ever taken!
This trip to Portugal has been the best-organized trip I have taken. The level of details and care from Antonio and his team I have never experienced before. Antonio had printed out the routes, contact details and some Portuguese phrases. It was excellent! It provided me with all relevant information about the trip.
Each day was better than the one before!
Each day was better than the one before! The final day had fantastic views of the coast and some great trails. Each day had its own great moments. Berta’s lunches were absolutely incredible. Delicious homemade and super healthy salads and desserts. Such a highlight of the trip.
Antonio was superb. Efficient, organised, caring and with attention to every detail. Pedro was a great tour guide too. Good sense of humour and always cheerful and fun. Very professional and caring.

Excellent – As usual a fantastic holiday – great guides, food and company and cycling that challenged me.
As usual every detail of the holiday had been meticulously planned so that everything ran like clockwork. I always know that I’m going to get a great holiday with Skedaddle. Amazing service from Antonio and his team. Berta and Mila provided the best Skedaddle lunches that I have ever had. Lots of home baking. Rui was great at being there with his van full of snacks. Every day was good. Especially liked days four and five. Everyone in a varied group had fun within their comfort zone.
I am contemplating another tour ASAP!
Antonio and his team were excellent and attention to detail was very much appreciated. Pedro made this a wonderful holiday for those of us who cycled with him most days. He allowed us to forge ahead when appropriate and had a great sense of humour. Pedro is the reason I am contemplating another tour asap.
A wonderful way to see Portugal
Really enjoyed all the cycling through the forest. The day along the coast was memorable – mainly for the epic weather and vast amounts of mud! A great holiday, the vineyard and castle hotels for the first 3 nights were amazing and a real luxury treat after a day in the saddle. Despite a week of mainly rain I still had a wonderful holiday, the lunches were outstanding and the support team worked so hard to look after us all.
Antonio, Berta and Rui provided an excellent service. Rui went the extra mile to ensure things were done quietly without fuss. A comprehensive bound guide book was provided which was really useful, as were the Garmin devices with the maps. Top notch guide and excellent mountain biker encouraging us to do more in terms of single track and technical descents. “Undulating” should be redefined in the Portuguese dictionary.
Great variety of riding
Favourite day was the trails around Sintra, good choice of single track, some rocky and some smooth, and easier trails in the forest. Nice to have rides with different characteristics on different days rather than five with the same character. The three guides worked well and accommodated the different speeds within the group. Picnic lunches were fantastic.
Phillip & Wendy, West Yorkshire
All the guides and drivers were fantastic. They all had a great level of expertise, their English skills were very good and they were a very friendly bunch. They made the whole holiday really enjoyable. Tour Leader Antonio was a great guide, friendly, very patient and encouraging and happy to take those less confident on an alternative route. Favourite bit – both days in Sintra.
