I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
It was great. We could do as much as we wanted. We could have made it as hard or easy as we liked. We loved being active. (more)Liz Wood
Biking in the beautiful country of Spain with my husband and good friends was the most memorable part. It was a wonderful experience, great trails, food and memories to last a lifetime. I am planning my next trip now! (more)Mark Edwards
Everything about this holiday was excellent, and exceeded expectations. We have already recommended this holiday to our friends, and would do it again ourselves! (more)Ashling Swirtz
Wonderful holiday for active people who love nature and do not like tourist traps. (more)Dorine van der Vloodt
The most memorable part of the holiday was the 30k mountain bike ride that took in parts of the local scenery that would have remained unseen without the guidance and assistance of our host. (more)Mark Burberry
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
Loved the fact that this worked so well for my husband and I - he's a serious recreational cyclist and I'm an avid cyclist but more casual in my approach. We're '50 something's' and found this all very enjoyable. (more)Beth from Canada
What a fantastic holiday! Cycling each day down a new route, through vineyards, small hamlets, to the beach! A holiday quite different to anything we had both been on before. (more)Claire Hermolle
Best bit: Visiting a new part of Spain. (more)Alan Spencer
Very good...La Rectoria accommodation: comfortable ease, nothing a problem, beautiful rural location, delightful hosts and delicious food. (more)Lorna McCourt
We loved the flexibility of this trip - Alan and Vivian were happy to tailor the trip to our needs and always ready to offer advice or ideas. The trip they planned allowed us to see Catalonia and stay in some fantastic places without the hassle of sorting everything out ourselves. (more)Bennet Summers
The area and the landscape are very fascinating. Also to live locally in a small relaxed village was something I enjoyed a lot. (more)jarmo kaariainen
Go on holiday here. You will not regret it. Brilliant mountain biking, superb food, incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Also the silence in the village and the beautiful scenery! I think this is responsible travel at it's peak. (more)Krystyna Holder
The glorious views and superb weather when we put the bikes in the car and cycled around the sea side.
Make the most of the tracks and trails that you can travel straight from the door and use some of the superb restaurants in the area at siesta time
Yes - John is very careful about using local people and suppliers in all he does.
Excellent very enjoyable rural destination (more)Damian Culshaw
My daughter and I stayed here at the beginning of July. We found the accomodation was amazing and very well kept. Being able to cycle, self guided to some wonderful and challenging locations and experience the local culture was wonderful. Sharing meals with the other guests when we ate was fantastic to be able to meet other like minded people. Gareth and Fiona were always on hand to help us plan routes etc and also take us out to local towns in the evening when the kitchens... (more)sue bound
The last night, when we walked back along the beach from an excellent
restaurant in Santa Antoni. There were live bands, dancing and warm,
happy people everywhere. The perfect end to one of the best holidays
ever. (more)Sarah Slade
Excellent - beautiful accommodation, spotlessly clean and with lovely extra thoughtful touches. The bicycles were perfect - very comfortable and trustworthy. (more)Margaret Steventon
We all had a brilliant time and I can't thank Alan and Vivian enough for the warm welcome we received and the thoughtfulness they demonstrated while we were there. They are super hosts and really did think of everything we might have needed. (more)Jane Edwards
The most memorable part of the holiday was the environment of Andalucia itself. The main thing that contributed to the success of the trip was the group leader, Shaun Allan, who I cannot recommend highly enough.
The cycling was just the right side of challenging but I would warn other travellers to make sure they can cope - a couple within our group struggled.
The group did spend money locally on food, drink etc and I would guess... (more)Chris Povah
