Our guide was brilliant in every way. He made the holiday for us!
Our guides Nuno and Carlos were outstanding and an absolute delight to be with. They were both very relaxed, extremely knowledgeable and interacted extremely well with the both the adults and children alike. The island of Sao Miguel is a treasure and took our breath away with its beauty. The week exceeded expectations and was the best family holiday we have experienced. Thank you to everyone at Skeddadle for making such a memorable trip possible.
The highlight for me was actually one of the non-riding days when we went dolphin watching. It was an exhilarating and wonderful sight to see these beautiful creatures playing under and around the boat. What a privilege!
Excellent, faultless organisation
First day of cycling was best due to the magnificent scenery.
Nuno is a tremendous guide. Warm, engaging and informative. He really made the holiday for us all. What a lovely man.
Any dealings with the company were pleasant. All staff were pleasant and helpful.
The whole holiday was excellent.
So many amazing experiences! Highlights include: The mix and quality of the activities – Cycling, Kayaking, Hiking – Sea and Thermal Pool swimming/bathing and Whale watching. The warm friendly and informative guide Nuno – (Who told us lots abut the Geology, Flora/Fauna, History and Politics etc of San Miguel), the great hotels with great facilities. ( Especially the Terra Nostra in Furnas – most amazing place in a remarkable setting with a evocative history.) The food provided was part of our package was excellent. Having the lunch Cozido das Furnas was a special experience. It may well be the best family holiday we have ever had!
The accommodation and it’s facilities were excellent – Terra Nostra was very special, given it’s setting in the botanic gardens with the thermal spa. The Park Hotel was a a high standard too, with good facilities and extremely convenient for central Delgada.
Saddle Skedaddle were great in getting us set for the holiday and the representative operating for them in San Miguel were polite, informed and went out of their way to be helpful and ensure we had an excellent experience.
Our whole family loved this trip
A holiday which included so many highlights: cycling round the rim of a volcano, swimming in a hot waterfall, whale watching and many more. The guides were extremely knowledgable and very friendly, and the team at Skedaddle were really helpful in planning our trip. Thank you!
Graded as mellow, this holiday is designed for families who are looking for adventure and other things to see and do alongside cycling, with hiking, whale watching and a jeep safari all included. The trip is guided, so it’s great for families with younger children who are new to cycling or for those wanting a little more support. It’s great for families who are used to day rides but who want to keep the daily distances relatively low. The trip is two centre based, so you won’t have to keep changing accommodation along the way. There are plenty of other activities to look out for during the day’s cycle, with places of interest to take a break and keep the children entertained.
