Can't get enough!
Great biking for the whole trip! If you are looking for a challenging cross-country place-to-place trip across Spain then this one is for sure going to be hard to beat!! Second week for me was more enjoyable as it had more technical ups and downs. I took my own bike, but had I known the quality of hire bikes would have hired one.
All the guides were great. Nothing too much trouble, Steve is a really nice lad, Alan did great job and Sabine couldn’t do enough for everybody. Great cook and always happy.
Looking forward to doing the Sierra Nevada next and maybe even venturing to Peru too… can’t get enough!!

If I had a bucket list, I would put this one back in to do it again!
Dan is an excellent tour leader and once you are out on the trails it is like just riding out with friends. It would be a pleasure to do another ride with them. The best meals on the trip were the lunches. Skedaddle have maintained their reputation!
The fact that 6 people, most whom have never met, can be together in a relativly isolated group and still get on is testament to both Skedaddle holidays, the guides and the people that choose to ride with you. If I had a bucket list, I would put this one back in to do it again!

One of the best holidays ever!
Good trip good company, good food. Brilliant but hard work. The last day, the agony was over, drinks in the plaza one of the best holidays ever but completely knackered.

An excellent adventure...
Andy was good company and an excellent Tour Leader. Steve, Al, and Sabine were good company and provided an excellent service. Sabine’s lunches were particularly good.
