The final day when we were riding by the coast was stunning, as was the first day. I also enjoyed the variety of being inland for a day or two, and seeing the villages and farmland. Arriving into Bosa on the first night was beautiful – it was a really nice town.
Nicola was a fabulous guide – nothing was too much trouble and he was always so cheerful. He very kindly took me out on the first evening for a practice ride to get used to the bike. He was also really knowledgeable about Sardinia and it was great to hear what he had to say about the island, its history and people.
The guides did an amazing job with lunch and snacks! Fabulous picnics were conjured out of the back of the van – really great!
Some of the accommodation was superb, in particular the hotel in Santu Lussurgiu, My room there was beautiful and the evening meal that they provided was amazing. I only wish I hadn’t been so tired and then I could have enjoyed it even more! This was far above my expectations.
The riding was excellent every day
Sergio, Nicola and Danilo were excellent guides. Every day had its merits, (even the day we got wet!) however, the last day was simply stunning. A beautiful day, fabulous views, clear roads, lunch on the beach and then dinner in Pula – an excellent end to the holiday.
Memorable holiday and wonderful cycling
The guides (two of whom – Nicola and Sergio – I knew from previous trips) were wonderful. Informative, friendly and helpful. I’m so glad, after all Sergio’s prompting, I did one of the Sardinian trips. It lived up to all my expectations. I will do one of the training weeks next Spring either in Ronda or Tenerife. After that I’m open to suggestions!
This was the first time we had taken a road cycling holiday. Everyone was really friendly and the guides were patient, supportive without being pushy and practical allowing us to have a really enjoyable week and feeling as though we had achieved something good on the bikes. Many thanks.
Route was spectacular and our guide Renato was excellent. Great sense of humour, very professional, good mechanic, courteous, well organised, fair to the group. Antonio – driver and lunch maker also so was excellent. They were a very good team.
I had a fabulous holiday!
I cycled further than I thought possible, ate delicious food & relaxed in stunning scenery with excellent company. What more could I wish for to celebrate my 60th birthday!
Loved the variety of accommodation & they were places i would never have found myself. Helped make it a very special experience! Lieven was very conscientious, everything was very well planned & ran very smoothly. He always made us aware of what lay ahead & what to expect the terrain would be like. He made the each day very enjoyable & had a great sense of humour.
I would certainly hope to join another Skedaddle Holiday in the future. I had an amazing time & a great experience which I would love to repeat.
Thanks very much!
All in all a brilliant holiday, Leivan, Renato and Danillo were brilliant, the food and accommodation were excellent, the group got on really well.
All the 3 guides were fantastic. They couldn't have been more helpful.
The guides were friendly, very approachable and very helpful. The group was friendly, outgoing and sociable. Good mix of ages and very fit (and competitive) fellow cyclists. Accommodation each evening was of a comfortable and good standard. Restaurants chosen were excellent. The itinerary for the cycling was very well organised and we passed some spectacular scenery and managed to swim in the sea on two occasions. I’ve never cycled 300 miles in 6 days, so quite an achievement.
This was an expensive holiday, but considering all the transfers and staff costs it was worth every penny.
I cannot imagine another company providing a better service...
The Sardinia Coastal Explorer holiday was brilliant. The effort the guides put into the lunches was great. After half a days guiding they all made sure the food was presented well and filled us with energy for the afternoon ride.
Every day was my favourite day.
Already planning my next Skedaddle holiday...
It was my first time to Sardinia, and I must say all the cycling was fantastic, beautiful coastline cycling as well as the inland rides.
The guides were very organised, good plan, good humour, good lunches – could not be better!
So much more than a holiday!
One of our group commented that she wasn’t going on a holiday, not doing an achievement. That sums it up really – a fantastic challenge.
Some beautiful scenery with great guides and group members. We all left Sardinia with a lot more than we arrived with.
The tour guides made a great team, they inspired the group coping well with differing abilities of the group. They were a credit to your company!
Each day just got better...
Excellent! A challenge, fantastic scenery, brilliant places to stay and total confidence in being looked after everywhere we stayed. This more than fulfilled any expectations, thank you!
Each holiday I have done with you I have thoroughly enjoyed. I cannot describe how well the guides work together to ensure the trip runs as smoothly as it did!
It was everything we expected and more!
We spoke to a number of different staff beforehand and they dealt with all our queries very well. All the hotels were of a much higher standard than we expected.
Our hire bikes were superb and one of the main reasons why we chose Skedaddle! The guides were great too – Massimo was a fantastic leader and Sergio was outstanding. All the guides seemed very knowledgeable and passionate about Sardinia and this was reflected in everything they did.
The holiday exceeded our expectations!
The lunches made by the tour guide were of an extremely high standard and very welcome after a long morning in the saddle!
The guides are a credit to Saddle Skedaddle and should be congratulated on their professionalism, knowledge and integrity. Their efforts made a good holiday into an exceptional holiday.

I am a complete convert to Skedaddle!
Massimo was knowledgeable, positive without being unctuous, and hugely good company. He led me out one morning which was a thrilling experience for me. Only one suggestion – I learned how to ride ‘in and off’ into a headwind with a small group from another person on the holiday – Massimo offered very helpful suggestions about safe descending, but could have done just a bit more teaching about how to tackle ascents and ride into wind.
I felt the holiday was extraordinarily well-organised and thought-through without at any point being bossy!
The guides were excellent and did everything they could to make the holiday enjoyable and a success. We also appreciated the pre-holiday phone call to see if we had any last minute questions.
I felt Gionata was perfect for the group. He had a very good sense of humor, dealt with everything in a positive manner and was excellent when he rode with the group as he gave us all tips on riding difficult sections and was able to give us some history facts as well that I found quite interesting.
Massimo was a very good guide, his skills are different from Gionata’s but the two guides complement each other as leaders. He was able to find some fun stops for us to either cool our feet or feed our tummies, he certainly was able to find some good gelato and cappuccino stops which were always welcome.
I have already talked to friends about this holiday and would happily recommend Skedaddle.
All the days were great in their own ways. Really loved the Giant bike I hired. After a rainy day, the next morning the bikes were all cleaned, degreased, and relubricated. They were running like they were new bikes, and it was really fantastic service.
Massimo has a high degree of professionalism, seriousness, concern for safety, comfort and overall client happiness, and always has a keen eye for ways to continually enhancing the quality and excellence of the trip experience. He encouraged all riders to enjoy the trip at their own pace, and any special requests were addressed rapidly. Enrico was always supportive and friendly, and working diligently to provide his elements of the trip to a very high degree of client satisfaction.
Massimo as with all the guides worked really hard to make sure we all had an enjoyable trip. Nothing was ever forgotten and I was really looked after.
They were great – always checking we were OK and nothing was too much bother!
All the days were brilliant!
Massimo, Renato and Lieven couldn’t have done any more to help, inform and support us, and were super company as well!
It was a really great week – cycling, company, food, accommodation! I can’t think of anything we could have asked that wasn’t already provided.
Massimo and Renato have the perfect demeanour for their roles. A pure joy to follow!
Lots of variety, great roads and wonderful views!
Hard to imagine better guides for the trip, a fantastic mix of personalities and experience that made a brilliant team. They had fantastic knowledge of the area and also a great sense of humour.
Martin, West Yorkshire
Overall, the quality, hospitality and customer service of the hotels was fantastic and memorable.
This was our second trip with Massimo – and he really is exceptional! He tries very hard to make sure that everyone in the group is getting the absolute maximum out of the trip. He is prepared to go the extra mile and nothing is too much trouble for him!
