    My cycling vacation was a great experience. Chris and Martha were obviously experienced cyclists and their support team was well organized and helpful. The hotels and restaurants were carefully selected and matched the wellness intentions of the vacation. On our vacation we had people with different cycling abilities and the team served everyone very well, they also have e-bikes available. To consclude, I had a great time with these professional people and highly recommend the trip!

    Incredible scenery and hiden jems that we would not expect existed in Andalusia! It is definitely one of the best organised cycle holidays, everything taken care of including small presents from the guides on our way. The local cafes we stopped at and tapas bars we came across were so different from what could be expected. I didn't know I could learn so much from the people I met. Chris and Paul couldn't have been more helpful whenever I had any technical problems. I would love to go back again!

    This is my 6th cycling holiday in Europe and definitely the best! With 4 guides everyone could go at their own pace and being a relatively slow but steady cyclist that suited me (usually on other trips we had one guide and a driver for up to 16 people). Electric bikes were also available! There was no need of choosing restaurants everyday as we had all inclusive (other trips of mine involved finding a place to eat every night and this was complicated in holiday season). The Caminito del Rey and a guide organised for the Alhambra in Granada was an added bonus as getting tickets for either of these places is difficult. Although I have already been to the Alhambra, the place is attracting you again and again to feel the magic! Bilingual guides are a must - every query was understood. Lastly, having a chance to relax for the day instead of a serious climb made me feel this was a real holiday.
