Memorable parts? Every day with new discoveries of Costa Rica, beautiful cycling experience, local tour leader Memo and his fantastic crew member Luνs and Ronald, and variety of holiday experience in two weeks made this holiday the best I've ever been.

I had a brilliant time on this holiday and it fulfilled most of what I wanted to get out of the trip. (more)Murray Hendriksen

Cycling holiday in Catalonia, Spain
Great. Would definitely now consider another cycling holiday with this company. We enjoyed the experience of cycling through the countryside and to the beach then stopping off for lunch and a beer. We saw so many lovely places. (more)patricia houston
We all enjoyed it immensely...I think seeing the first medieval village and cycling through the deep countryside were the most satisfying experiences. For others it might have been stopping for the first beer at a village cafι. Or the fantastic burger and chips in Ripli when we were all tired and hungry. (more)John Lowdon
Very good..Cycling through the countryside and to and from the beach. Also the food was fantastic. (more)Wendy McCaffer

Tanzania and Kenya biking holiday
Memorable parts? Biking itself and meeting the locals on the way was fascinating enough, but camping on Masai grounds and talk to the villagers was a bonus on top. I definitely enjoyed the variety of biking tracks and terrains and the game drives were fantastic. Tips? Well, be in good condition, have a bit of biking practise beforehand and go for some uphills.

Brilliant! I have done supported tours in USA, Cuba, Brazil and Europe and this is the gold standard in terms of support, food, attention to detail, professionalism, friendliness etc. etc. I cannot recommend this company too highly. Go have fun! (more)Jane Thurnell-Read
Lots of most memorables... but the ones that really stick in my mind are first spotting of a zebra in the wild,... sitting 150 feet up on the rock outcrop having a supper picnic watching the sun set sipping wine made from the monastery. (more)Suzette Lang

Thailand activity holiday, bike, hike & raft
Memorable parts? The first village stay on the hill tribe trek - we were the first group to stay in this village, and the kids were so excited to see us that I think we became a free babysitting service to the whole village for the entire night! Tips? Be prepared to 'rough it' and bring a sense of adventure with you. Many of the nights accommodation involve some form of shared accommodation with the whole group - think home stays, bamboo huts when trekking, house boats, and sleeper... (more)Hannah Gausden

A great escape from London and have booked again already! (more)Helena Posnett

Burgundy self guided cycling tours, France
Memorable parts? Cycling at our own pace through stunning, varied countryside and finding places that we would have missed in a car. Tips?
