This trip was excellent
The two guides made an excellent team and did all they could to make our trip enjoyable. They constantly adjusted for poor weather etc and ensured everything ran smoothly.They are a credit to Skeddadle. Thank you!
Both tour leaders / guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They were always available.
It was a bit more expensive than my skiing holidays usually are, but the standard of the accommodation was better than I have come to expect on ski holidays, which makes up for it. It was my first cycling holiday, but it won’t be my last, and Skedaddle will definitely be top of my list.
I had a fantastic time in Tuscany
Excellent cycling, beautiful scenery and great company. There were a few cheeky climbs but the rewards were amazing views, great descents and a big sense of achievement. I also enjoyed sampling the local food and wine and with a great bunch of cyclists. The picnic lunches as always were fantastic too!
The team leader did an amazing job looking after everyone. She was always available to help with whatever we needed and always with a smile. This included extra rides for those that wanted it and lessons in speaking italian! An all round great host for our italian cycling adventure.
Our guide Cristina did a great job and made sure that everything went according to plan. Both Leif and Guiseppe were excellent guides too. Guiseppe in particular was very patient with the slower cyclists in the group and made getting up those hills a little more bearable.
..to our Tour Leader Cristina for making our holiday so very enjoyable. She worked hard to ensure everyone was happy, going out of her way to deliver the riding we expected. Our other guides were very good-Leif has a vast wealth of historical and local knowledge and is an excellent and polite host. Guiseppi leads at a perfect pace. Thank you both, you made it fun!
Every day was made very enjoyable due to the people we met. Our tour leader Cristina was fantastic. Always a smile and good sense of humour. Took us on a lovely ride on the rest day. A real people person. She has recommended the Lakes of Lombardy….we well may be tempted!
