The guides were great, always helpful and thoughtful to our needs. Very professional. Dan knew the place comprehensively and devised some fantastic routes that seemed superbly researched. He had just the right approach of being informal, professional and friendly at the appropriate times.
An absolutely rip-snortingly briliant holiday, thank you! An excellent standard of accommodation throughout the trip, with the exception of one night spent in a mountain refuge – an unmissable experience, nonetheless!
The cycling was technically and physically demanding level of mountain biking in spectacular scenery. Interesting and varied trails, with optional routes provided for the more adventurous. With my relatively limited experience of mountain biking but reasonable fitness levels, I found the cycling very challenging but deeply satisfying. I had occasional moments of self-doubt when facing a steep and rocky downhill, but coped with the (many) climbs.
I was one of the weaker riders in the group so Dan’s enthusiasm, relaxed style and encouragment really helped me enjoy the cycling. Everything seemed to run so seamlessly, the organisation, logistics, food etc although I also appreciate how much work must go in to running something so efficiently. I can only imagine the level of responsibility the leader must carry to allow people like me to go on holidays like this – thank you.
A massive pleasure of the holiday was not having to think about any logistics and just to relax and enjoy the riding and scenery.
Best lunches ever! Better than any trip I have been on, huge thanks to Dan, Andy and Steve for top-notch catering. This is my second trip where Dan has guided and he’s relaxed and laid back yet he has all problems in hand.
The guides made a great team! Dan was an attentive, caring and enthusiastic leader while Steve and Andy covered all other bases seamlessly.
Our guide Dan was a great leader, with an excellent sense of humour and bags of patience. He was able to set the right tone and was supportive to every member of the group. His relaxed manner really aided the holiday. All the guides were capable, very friendly and good company!
