What our customers say

Congratulations to all the group for completing the route and many thanks to you for organising the whole trip. Graham and Phil were very helpful throughout with the tea stops a highlight of the day (I think Graham slightly edged the table layout).

This was my first cycling trip which I enjoyed so much that I will be looking forward to hearing about the new tours for next year.

David O'Brian, September 2013

The tour was so well organised, I couldn't find any critisism. Thank you for a great tour.

Mike Lee, September 2013

What a great 4 days a great tour and company. Your staff Phil and Graham are indispensable and a great asset to your company. This tour was well organised and a great personal achievement for myself, it also gave me 4 days with my son Elliott priceless father and son time , so once again thanks to everybody concerned and to top it off we raised over £2000 for charity.

Graham & Phil were an inspiration. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always cheerful.

The tour was perfect, even with the slight headwind we experienced.

Sara Cook, September 2013

Beyond Excellent!

Rodney Binley Bespoke Tour July 2013

The route was very enjoyable and I had to stop sometimes to take in the view and the silence. I sometimes found I was speechless which is hard to do!! I have seen parts of the country I have never seen before and I will be making sure I visit these places again.

Fantastic tour which I would love to do again. I am made up I have achieved a massive goal in my life and I can say I did LEJOG.

Craig Boote September 2013

Tony Warne made the trip for me, so helpful and informative and patient and looked after the bike really well. He was kept busy! Would definitely ask for Tony again, in a year or so!

Paul Rebours Bespoke Tour July 2013

I loved all three tour guides Graham, Jonny and James! They all worked hard with their duties of cycling with the group, manning the brew van and fetching and delivering the luggage. Collectively they gave great advice on bike problems, eating , drinking, restaurant choices in town and body niggles!

Teresa Bailey September 2013
