Really enjoyed the tour, was provided with a very good hire bike, plenty of gears (needed them all!), comfortable saddle & roomy pannier with tools & spare inner tubes provided, which I thankfully didn’t need.
Routes were mostly quiet roads and some off road tracks, scenery was spectacular, and hotels were all of a very good standard. The detailed step by step route guides and maps that were provided for each day were easy to follow, although needed to be studied carefully as there were a few tricky bits.
Support from Mel was excellent, he was available all day on the phone, and there was no problem with the transfer of luggage between hotels. Would definitely recommend this trip to any cyclist of a reasonable standard.
