You can book with confidence
When you book a trip with us we want you to be confident in what will happen to your money, and how you will be treated should everything not go exactly to plan. As a responsible tour operator we work in partnership with two organisations to help protect you in the event of our insolvency, or should you have a complaint about the way we have looked after your booking. The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust (ABTOT) provide financial protection to our customers should we not be able to provide your trip due to insolvency. We are also members of ABTA, the UK's travel trade organisation, who provide a code of conduct and are able to help should you not be happy with elements of our service.
We're also often featured in the press with the likes of CNN having endorsed our cycling tours in their travel round ups and holiday reviews. But of course, the biggest indicator that our tours offer you the best experience, is our customers. With 96% saying they would return for more, we're fairly confident our tours hit the right marks and will inspire and impress you too.

We support sustainable travel
We understand that to travel is a privilege and must be done sustainably. That's why each tour in our range has been carefully crafted to ensure it benefits the local people and places you visit, and why we choose to travel by bike and in small groups, to help minimize the disruption to these local communities.
Alongside ensuring our tours operate in a sustainable, positive way, we are also proud sponsors of the UK-based charity, Sustrans, who maintain the extensive cycle network infrastructure here in the UK. For every mile cycled along the National Cycle Network during one of our cycle tours, we donate 5p to Sustrans. Since introducing these initiatives in 2010 we have raised over £22,000 which goes toward maintaining essential cycle infrastructure in the UK.
