Faultless service from Saddle Skedaddle from start to finish...
We were kept informed of the progress with our booking and alerted as soon as the trip would definitely going ahead. We were given assistance when booking the flights and a detailed itinerary too. The transport from and to the airport ran impeccably. The guides went the extra mile to ensure they did everything to ensure everybody was smiling all of the time.
The standard of accommodation was incredibly high – each hotel had excellent facilities, a garage for bike storage and a warm welcome.
Hannah was a fantastic tour leader, never without a smile, the ultimate professional but also one of the group. She lead with confidence and that really allowed you to ride with confidence behind her. Hannah always ensured the route was clear to follow and would stop to keep the group in a tight bunch through more difficult sections. In the evenings, Hannah did a fantastic job of keeping everybody happy whilst ordering, and paying for, the evening meal…no easy job!
Alan, West Yorkshire
I expected that this ride would be a challenge for me and it was. But I never felt like I was unable to accomplish it. The guides were very attentive and helpful.
Climbing the Puy Mary was my favourite day. Even though it was difficult for me, I really felt I had accomplished something and the scenery was spectacular. Plus the downhill, cold as it was, was great fun!
Spectacular chosen routes...
I liked our guides – very fun- and I thought that the routes chosen were spectacular. Roads were in good condition, lovely and varied in both scenery and difficulty. Food was generally good.
The first day was great because it was beautiful to see the rolling countryside and chateaus. The second day was great because we moved into completely different territories, and the medieval bridge outside Cahors is fabulous. The third day on the national bike trail was amazing. The fourth day with the climb up Puy St. Mary was exhilarating as well as beautiful. My least favourite day was the last – the scenery wasn’t as interesting, though I did like Domme quite well. And the day was shorter. Bravo for picking so many roads that are in great condition. As we were driving around after our trip was over we realised that the roads chosen were in some of the best shape we had seen.
The three guides interacted smoothly and seamlessly in what could have been a difficult first riding of a new route. They made us “newbies” feel comfortable from the beginning and we are now hopefully going to become Skedaddle regulars like the other members of our group. If our other guides and trips are as satisfying as this one, we will be well pleased!
