“I was thinking weather to go on these type of holiday for couple of year as I am not one these everyday or even weekend cyclists. But I wanted to see Cuba and may I say, I chosen well!
The only first couple of days were bit boring / same scenery / same kind of roads but after that it was marvelous”

“A pleasant and rewarding few days in one of the lesser-visited parts of Italy. Gentle visits to picturesque towns and villages taking in the cuisine and culture were ideal for a group of 11 ranging in age from about 40 into the mid 70s. Travelling in May avoided the blistering heat which followed throughout the summer. There was plenty of free time in which the group could do their own thing. Accommodation was excellent throughout, particularly the Trulli of Alberobello, and caves of Matera.”

“Despite initial concerns about the lack of snow, the whole holiday was so packed with sights and experiences we wondered when we would have found time to do more snowshoeing. The country has a lot to offer whatever the weather.”
