10 - 17 May - Cycling and Chianti including time at the gorgeous San Gimignano and Montalcino on this popular Italian road cycling holiday.
Another wonderful trip superbly organised by Skedaddle...
Massimo & Nicola were superb at keeping us all together en route and always utterly cheerful! Excellent riding companions and majority were Skedaddle regulars which goes to show that you just keep doing what you‘re doing. It’s very good and we’ll keep coming back.
The secret is your wonderful cheerful guides that make each one of us feel comfortable and important to them. Always willing to go to extraordinary lengths to help us with unforeseen mechanical problems – very grateful and very happy!
The guides make all the difference...
Massimo is the best there is! I keep coming back because of him. Great cyclist, great person, great work ethic!

Overall, a very enjoyable trip...
The office staff and staff on the trip were excellent from start to finish! Naomi was a fantastic guide and took everybody’s opinions / wishes into consideration. We saw some fantastic countryside and did some wonderful cycling.
We stopped in some lovely towns so it wasn’t all hard work! We stayed in some wonderful ‘rustic’ / authentic Italian accommodations – they were classy and not your average accommodations. Very well researched! So good value for money.
The food was excellent and at a good price, as was the wine. In fact, there was too much food on occasions but not complaining! It was our first trip with Skedaddle but I don’t feel it will be the last.

He was absolutely charming and such an amusing man – very attentive. The food prepared by Massimo and Vanessa was outstanding!
I think all the food was excellent (evidenced by the fact I didn’t lose any weight during the week, despite the kilometres cycled every day). I really appreciated the efforts and the personal touch put into the spread provided for us. Dinner – absolutely fantastic, I’ll be reminiscing and dreaming about each meal for years to come. Refreshments – the ice cold, sweet juice and the fruit and nuts were my saviours, they absolutely hit the spot. And the gelati stops were absolute gold!
Naomi was superb – very professional, accommodating and friendly. She showed genuine care, concern and interest in every single person on the trip, and made sure everyone was comfortable and happy. It was wonderful not to feel judged, pressured or rushed; to still be able to enjoy the trip.
Yes – I think the dynamic of our particular group played a big part in how much I enjoyed the trip, and how likely I would be to participate in another Skedaddle trip. I feel we were lucky to have such a great group of people who got along so well – hopefully every Skedaddle tour attracts the same quality of clientele. I was very happy with the tour – thank you very much for the wonderful experience!
Excellent – it was clear that a great deal of thought and care had been taken with the accomodation choices and I was often suprised with the quality which was often far better than I expected!
Pre holiday information was very detailed and gave a good account of what to expect from the trip.

The quality of accommodation was really very good and so worth the extra cost. The evening meal did cost more than we had anticipated as we hadn’t realised in advance that we had no venue choice due to remote locations; the meals did represent good value but we would have preferred to know they would cost around 25 – 30 per meal (which as vegetarians is more than we had expected). However I must add that we really did enjoy the meals, and the experience of eating together in these locations was fantastic so please don’t change it!

I must confess that I was initially sceptical about the holiday cost but on reflection; whilst not cheap, it was indeed a very good trip. I hope you are able to achieve this high standard accross all your holidays.
