We have had a great trip cycling around Rhode Island. We loved Kalarvarda, nice empty roads, nice restaurants along the beach and a nice little cafe in the market square. The B&B was in a lovely location and w were given a room with a balcony which was a nice touch. In Rhodes, the B&B gave us their best room with private balcony, which was a nice touch, good location and very nice historic setting. (Oct 2020)
We had a lovely week in Scotland last week even though we gave up on the cycling!. The accommodation was all lovely and we had some good meals out too! James is still struggling with his back and is having treatment from the Osteopath – hopefully, we’ll be able to get cycling again soon. (Sep 2020)
All 3 hotels were comfortable and welcoming. The route finding notes were very well laid out and easy to use. Thanks to you and your colleagues for your organization of the holiday, and we would certainly consider your company again for similar holidays. (Jan 2020)
