Excellent Holiday – I don’t bother looking at other tour companies! And now trying to find one that I haven’t done yet!
We had a fabulous fun group of riders and guides on this trip. It was so nice to meet up with Jean Franco who (I don’t think) was our main guide last year. His girlfriend Judita was great company. I was sad that I hadn’t gone on to do the Scotland Highlands Coast to Coast trip immediately afterwards as had such FOMO (fear of missing out) when I got home!

Another magnificent trip!
Another magnificent trip with a big number of participants to deal with. Naomi is superb with her prep. Great food again. Riding into the Vatican is hard to beat. I’ve been on many Skedaddle trips and this is right up there with the best, and the road to Rome is a great one to do with not being the hardest, but still a good test. Looking forward to next year.

As seen in the press...
Follow the last 184 miles (300km) of the old pilgrimage route to Rome through the hills of Tuscany and Lazio, starting at San Gimignano and finishing at St Peter’s, with Siena, Lake Bolsena and many ups, downs, dirt tracks and gelati along the way.
'30 of the best cycling holidays', Sunday Telegraph (2017)
Never anything less than great service. The guides always try to meet everybody’s expectations and in particular, in this case, to amend the last day under pressure. I thought they did a great job.

A Special Trip
Very good route with varied terrain – good group, very well planned and organised. Lovely variety of small hotels and agritourismos, full of character and well chosen. Day 6 was my favourite – we cycled through vineyards, hazel groves, long single track by river, by the Roman Amphitheatre -very special!

Great group dynamic!
Something fun cycling wise every day. Group worked well.
