Loved every day!
Tour Leader Manuel was responsible and responsive. Really enjoyed his company. Santiago – omg – what an exceptional happy man – always a joy to have around. And Nacho was a special addition to the team. Quiet but fascinating and always ready to help out in any way he could. We had an awesome team and would ride with them again any day!! I just loved every day!

I can't thank you all enough...
I wanted to express my gratitude for your support and encouragement over the past week. Without it I don’t think I could have achieved as much as I did. The Guides unfailing cheerfulness and positivity fooled me into believing I could actually reach the top of those “ridiculous” climbs. Eventually I realised I was even enjoying myself (however grumpy I may have appeared)!
The guides love of the bike routes around Ronda and desire to share them with us was evident. I had a fantastic holiday, and our guides (Dan, Steve & Andy) were integral to that. I can’t thank you all enough.

Dan (our guide) was outstanding!
He is a really relaxed individual but had clearly worked hard and effectively to ensure we all had a great holiday. He was careful to ensure that each member of the group had a good time, irrespective of the varying levels of cycling ability, and succeeded extremely well. He is great company, very positive and this contributed to everybody having a fantastic holiday!

The holiday was wonderful from start to finish.
The organisation each day by Dan and Steve was very meticulous and well thought out and explained on easy to understand maps and graphs each morning. Must pay particular compliments to both Dan and Steve for making this all possible with their people and motivation skills, excellent knowledge of the area, and above all both easily approachable.
Breakfast was plentiful with lots of cereals, breads, cheese, jams and eggs with other energy foods needed for the rides. Lunch was provided by Steve which was a gastro delight after a slog through the mountains providing pasta, salads breads and other hot food slaved away on a stove. Dinner was also very good tasting the local cuisine and I liked the idea of being pampered at the farm house!
Overall package was excellent and would use Skedaddle again!

Dan and Steve were welcoming, friendly, enthusiatic, helpful & adjusted the schedule to circumstances.
Ronda is well suited to a centre based cycing holiday with beautiful national parks in most directions in easy reach, mainly quiet and generally well maintained roads.
The accomodation was very good – a comfortable, clean, large house with pool. The centre based holiday provides a little more time off the bike than a linear holiday, and the house with it’s veranda and living room with wood fire encouraged the group to socialise in the evening!

Couldn't really have asked for more!
Dan was an easy going guy who was very friendly to everyone. Gave a bit of encouragement and made sure people were ok in winds/rain/downhill etc. Dealt with comments/feedback in a very positive way. Changed the routes to suit us (including a decent length route to the smurf village and giving us a shorter day on the saturday so we could go and look around town).
Steve’s cooking just got better throughout the week and all lunches were really nice. On one particularly windy day he gave us roadside support by handing out bits of banana’s as we rode past (made me feel like a proper rider :-)) Both Steve and Dan were really accommodating with any requests, at times it was like being waited on hand and foot, getting blankets when we were cold and getting specific food we asked for!
