The team did a fantastic job!
David is simply one of the best tour guides, always on hand to answer any questions or sort anything out for you. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He ensured everybody was ok with riding etc and looking after each capability and safety whilst ensuring we all enjoyed each ride. The guys looked after each and every one of us – Emilio is a great mechanic and sorted out all the bikes ensuring they were in perfect working order (we certainly needed those good brakes on the descents), they were cleaned and serviced for us ready to ride each day; both he & Mau did a brilliant job whether that was working late or getting up early to cater for certain needs. Saul picked us up when it got too much in the heat and ensured we were comfortable, he was always on hand to drive us wherever we needed him to. The team did a fantastic job!! Too many favourite days to choose from. Really enjoyed the ride from San Ramon to La Fortuna, the optional ride from La Fortuna and then onto Canas, fantastic ride with a cracking beer at the end of the day!!
Hoping to get on another Skedaddle holiday soon!
Lots of great days – the ride around Turrialba on xmas day, the killer downhill toward Canas, and many more.
David was great. On top of everything, unflappable, and always in good humor. Would ride with him again in a heartbeat.
This was not a cheap trip and we hesitated about booking it in part for that reason. However, it was totally worth it. The leader and guides were great, the rest of the riders were interesting and fun, and the riding was terrific and challenging.
High standards met all round!
Care and service, attention to detail, as always excellent; genuine interest in the clients – all good!! Communication before and during the trip was both professional and timely.
Our tour guide David was sociable, knowledgeable, responsible, and took care of clients with a good touch of personal interest – fit and capable, and a great sense of humour (you need it to deal with some of us!)
Love your cycling holidays...
All of the rides were scenic and challenging. As my fitness wasn’t great to begin with a big achievement for me was the first full day I did then once my fitness was up the cycle outside san jose was awesome.
Costa Rica is an ideal cycling destination...
It was great to spend Christmas/New year somewhere different and hot. The area has a lot to offer; friendly people, varied terrain, great food, interesting wildlife, quality hotels. We were well looked after by all the guides with plenty of water, snacks, vehicle support and well organised transfers.
David went above and beyond to accommodate everyone’s diverse needs and skill set. All the days had their unique experiences. But at the margin, New Year’s Eve day stands out, short but sharp ride in the morning, followed by a free afternoon at Carrillo beach surfing waves, and then spectacular fireworks with good company for New Year’s.

Great route through a fascinating country! Our guide, Mau, was a very pleaseant person.
A well organised trip...
The hotel’s locations were exceptionally beautiful!
Loved the fresh fruit, Rony was always around and responsive when needed for water/snacks ….and motivational words
I think the management of entire holiday was very fluid (hotel check ins, transfers, food stops, rides, dinners) and considerate of everyone’s needs. Very attentive, friendly and genuine personality.
