Each day had something different that made it stand out...
The pre-holiday service is one reason why I don’t bother looking at any other cycling holiday company. It always feels like everything is under control. The trip was recommended by a Skedaddle guide that I knew from a previous trip and I trusted his judgement enough to believe the trip was right for the experience that I wanted.
Tour Leader David was amazing, and our other guide Nico was a delight, very helpful and enthusiastic! Favourite day was Day 3 from Calvi to Porto – beautiful sea views most of the way and not too much traffic. Lovely weather too!
This was my fifth holiday with you, and excellent as always.
Excellent from the start, everything went seamlessly with Matt explaining everything from the next day’s route to simple bike checks, the complexities of operational research, the differences between Marmite and Vegemite, and lots more . . .
Overall, it was a fabulous road biking holiday!
Corsica is a beautiful island that has scenic coastal roads, pretty little villages for coffee/ beer stops, mountains, some fabulous descents, great French food and some interesting local wines.
Nothing was too much trouble...
Varied nature of days made them all appealing and perfect for the capability of the group.There was a good balance of challenging routes without being over the top. David was an excellent tour leader. Professional, helpful and very patient. With great skill he got the balance between being Tour Leader and part of the group. Nothing was too much trouble.
The holiday was absolutely brilliant – all the staff were excellent and became friends, the group was fantastic and friends for life have been made! Nothing could be faulted. I have used other cycling touring companies before, but would never go back – Skedaddle already have an excellent reputation and with the support, friendship, banter and amazing routes I would always now travel with Skedaddle. The accomodation was always of a good quality, some locations were simply stunning and others accessible to town centres / restaurants etc.
On balance, it was excellent value for money and I realised that the rates I paid with Skedadlle were really good value compared to other tour operators! I would only ever use Skedaddle after this amazing experience of the ride, accomodation, support, food and of course the guides!
Best holiday I've had in years...
I will remember it for a very long time!
Thanks again for an amazing holiday in Corsica. Planning, organisation, food and hotels, absolutely everything was spot on and you made it a very special break for me. It is very rare that I come back to the lakes after a holiday and want to turn around and go straight back but on this ocassion I could do just that!
The pre-holiday information was brilliant, and I was provided with more than enough info – no room to improve! Given the support and the overral high quality of everything the holiday represented great value for money.
I will be recommending Skedaddle to all my friends and will definately be booking again.

Having never previously done a cycling holiday, we thought that this was a great introduction to cycling holidays, and has certainly enthused us to consider doing more in the future. David, our guide, was very helpful and supportive both before and during the trip. The support provided during the trip was excellent. It was good to be contacted personally by our guide prior to going away, and gave us an ideal opportunity to ask any last minute questions.

Everyday was beautiful and challenging! The long, long descent on the last day was tremendous fun. It seemed like it would go on forever. Sadly, I was wrong. David did a masterful job of taking care of the group and he made it seem easy—which is a mark of true excellence. Although his style ls low-key and lighthearted, it was very clear with that he was absolutely and capably dedicated to our safety, well-being—and fun.
Enjoyed the long climbs much more than I thought I would. Views going up and down amazing and sense of achievement post ride was great. Having never done an organised cycling trip before, I have no yardstick against which to measure David, but I think it would have been difficult for him to have done any more for us all. I’m not trying to flatter him, but he was helpful throughout and very attentive when any of the riders had any problems. The organisation and attention to detail were first class, and on a trip like this, that makes all the difference.
Great Scenery, great weather, challenging uphills and fab downhils. The coastal route on the first day was my favourite but I enjoyed the whole trip as everyday had something different. Very well put together!
