One of the most enjoyable holidays!
One of the most enjoyable holidays, probably made more so by the fun loving group! Hotels were extremely good with the scenic swimming pools as an added bonus. Our Tour leader Cristina had just the right combination of safety, when required, and fun. She provided an alternative route for the weaker rider to ensure they had an equally enjoyable experience. It’s a nice touch to be contacted by phone just prior to the beginning of the holiday to ensure all is ok. I have already recommended Skedaddle to my friends on numerous occasions!
Best holiday ever!
Every single day was a favourite – seriously! Really hard to choose a favourite as they were all so varied and filled with stunning scenery. Tuscany had the best views and the hills always offered up great views once accomplished. Lazio’s wheat fields and flatter landscapes were a nice relief later in the week! I did particularly enjoy day 6 which saw us explore the amphitheater park and cycle through Italian canyons.
There was a great variety from modern and quite fancy, to more traditional yet still very comfortable accommodation. One of the highlights of the trip was rocking up to find out where we’d rest our heads of the evening. By far my favourite was the agriturismo which was like a little haven in the Tuscan countryside, i’ll always remember the pool with incredible view and our meal under the giant fig tree.
Totally converted to Skedaddle picnics! So many amazing salad options each day, prepared by our guides and presented wonderfully. The cookie and juice stops were always strategically positioned before or after a big climb too – very well thought out!
I’ve got so many amazing memories from this trip that I am going to cherish forever. A little tough at times, but the scenery, food and company were second to none and made those hills much easier to handle. 100% certain the best way to explore Italy is by bike now! Take me back!
A great combination of beautiful landscapes, quiet off road cycling, superb, off the beaten track accommodation and good company! Everything was sorted before we left with reassuring calls from the office at Skedaddle.
Accommodation was superb. Each one was unique with very welcoming hosts. The electric bike was beyond expectations, extremely powerful. The support vehicle turned up very promptly when there was any problem. Very impressive.
Attention to detail was provided and is the reason I continue to book with Skedaddle!
Excellent in all aspects!
Overall a 9 out of 10. Excellent in all aspects, one of the best cycling trips I have ever been on, very enjoyable and would relive next week if I could.
