Customer Testimonials

We are always pleased to get feedback from our customers. Here are a selection of comments we have received over the years:

Loved cycling the route – from what I can remember I think it has improved – although I know this is the 10 day version.

Good roads, fabulous scenery and a good balance of the days so tougher days were shorter mileage. There was lots of climbing and, I have to say, I was glad I warmed up on the Cols trip.

Brew stops were good as usual, I like the way we get things from bakeries! Lots of fruit, but it’s the Haribo that keeps me going 😉 Nigel makes a great picnic which allows you to eat what you feel like; however, the lunches were also good.

Another great tour – really enjoyed it. Up to Peak Tours usual standards. I never hesitate to recommend you because you consistently deliver excellent cycling trips.

Always ended the day looking forward to another day in the saddle.

One very happy customer 😊

Helen Evans Sept 2018

It’s a great route, generally simple, attractive initial days then really excelling through the Ardeche, Ventoux and Gorge du Verdon days – spectacular.

The food provided was generally good, I preferred the wonderful picnics. Good brew stops run by Nigel & Matt.

As long as there is a route I find attractive, i.e. one with a similar degree of interest and challenge, then I won’t look beyond Peak Tours. (This is my first organised multi-day bike trip).

Simon Ringham Sept 2018

We had brilliant accommodation, couldn’t fault any place.

The route was very well planned as we did not have to cycle through many built up areas or on many busy roads, obviously this couldn’t be helped in some places. I felt that the planning notes warned us of the hills so thankfully I managed them … I may even go as far as saying hills don’t daunt me anymore!

This was my first Peak Tour ride, but it certainly won’t be my last, the organisation was/is excellent. There was always a relaxed feeling and of being part of a family.

I can’t wait to do my next one … thought there are too many to choose from!

Denise Aitken June 2018

I’d be surprised if there was a better cycling tour company out there.

The tour was fantastic, it met all my expectations. I will be back next year (probably on the France tour)

Angus Bantock June 2018

I guess Peak Tours has a good relationship with all the landlords of the accommodations as we received excellent service throughout – well done to Peak Tours!

I thoroughly enjoyed the route, and although D2D was ‘billed’ by Peak Tours as more difficult than LEJOG, I am not convinced, i.e. I still think LEJOG is more challenging than D2D.

I think the group size of 21 riders (plus one spouse) worked well, and having been on three rides with Peak Tours, I tend to think 20-25 is about the right number.

It was an excellent group that jelled, and so that enhanced the holiday!

We received excellent support from the office for which I am very grateful. You have a superb personalised and efficient approach – with good humour, and I think that is a winning combination!

Philip Brodie June 2018

I have have great admiration for Peak Tours - the attention to detail is excellent but the staff really make it. Always helpful, professional and cheerful. I am recommending PT to all my friends.

Worth mentioning in particular Tina and Daryl on this trip as they had to contend with a number of challenges - and being a guide short for 3 days.

Jack Goodhew June 2018

Dear All, I can't praise Peak Tours enough for the wonderful D2D I have just enjoyed. Very well crafted and imaginative route, great Guides (Tina, Daryl, Tony, Johnny) and superb, very professional organisation - especially when the weather intervened at Settle. (Those of us within striking distance are going back to fill that section in). I think one of the keys to a great success is The Brew Wagon, which splits long, challenging days up into four manageable sections and ensures we all take on calories and fluids to defeat The Bonk. The personalities of The Guides is not second in importance; they work so hard and are full of encouragement and cheerfulness. I renamed the D2D as Dawn 2 Dusk and Tina, Daryl, Tony and Johnny were grafting from D2D in both senses. I learned such a lot about the country I was brought up in - especially in the South - and the nostalgia on re-visiting the far Northwest brought tears to my eyes. I could say a lot more but I mustn't go on...

Accommodation varied but all very good to excellent.

Adrian Long May 2018

Very happy with the route – challenging but scenic

Had a lovely holiday, away from the stresses of life, getting wet with likeminded people.

Ann-Marie Latham & Helen Cassady July 2018

I don’t think the route can be improved. Wonderful scenery.

One of the best, if not THE best cycling tour I have been on.

Martin Harvey June 2018

This tour exceeded expectations. Of course we had exceptional weather but apart from that the whole tour was well organised, well supported and covered roads that you’d find hard to beat for spectacular scenery. Thanks to you all especially Nigel, Steve & Martin.

Roger Turner June 2018

Brilliant route. Every day was spectacular. Not too challenging so there was time to appreciate the scenery.

Marion Kinshuck June 2018

Another wonderful experience with Peak Tours. Not to be missed.

Henry Slater May 2018

I thought the route was excellent with some great little roads which kept you away from traffic as much as possible and allowed best enjoyment of the beautiful scenery (the great weather we had helped of course).

The group size was good and the way the trip was run meant that there was no problem going at whatever pace you wanted.  Some people liked to go faster, I like stopping to take photos and admire the scenery.

The tour was well thought out and I think that Peak Tours have hit on a winning formula for a cycling tour.

Even when problems arose such as the second ferry not running an effective work around was devised which worked very well.

I will certainly look at the other trips that are on offer for a holiday next year.

Nigel was excellent particularly considering Bob and Emma had been co-opted in to support him at short notice.  Nigel worked tirelessly to make sure we enjoyed the trip – his efforts were much appreciated.

Richard Christie May 2018

The accommodations were actually better than I expected and definitely better than I usually book for myself. Even the B&Bs were charming but still very comfortable and updated.

Rebecca Miller May 2018

The route was wonderful – could not be topped – my favourite cycling and such a mixture of environments. Fabulous views and weather. Inspired to go back and explore further.

Loved the food van and thought the breakfasts were wonderful – the Bayview in Glengarriff was exceptional. Never thought I could manage another Irish breakfast but I’m missing them already. I liked the freedom to choose in the evenings.

So impressed with the hard working guides. Nigel was fantastic, and I loved Bob and Emma. Different skill set with each and as a team offered great strength. Indebted to each of them for their hard work and patience. Everything worked like clockwork, even when the ferry issues caused a minor detour, it was handled with calm and speed. I always knew where I was going, how to get there and my stuff was in place when I arrived. What more could you want?

The tour overall could not be topped. Imagine all that sunshine, fabulous countryside, swimming too. Will go back to experience more of Ireland. We were so lucky but even without the fab weather I would have loved it.

Sue Olliver May 2018

All the B&Bs were of a high standard and all very different.

The magic van is perfect for food.  Always a good selection, Emma brought local treats – which was a nice touch.

I was very impressed with the whole tour. Your hard work paid off to give us a good holiday.

Fiona Roberts May 2018

Accommodation was really good, everywhere we stayed the hospitality was excellent. So friendly and accommodating.

I loved the route, well done guys. This was well researched and easy to follow.

I could write a book about the tour guides. So nice, polite, so helpful and couldn’t do enough for you. You really are lucky to have such great tour guides! Please convey my sincere appreciation back to them for making my holiday a special memory

Alan Irwin May 2018

All in all I think Peak Tours are fantastic and it was a fantastic holiday!

Colin Sherrard May 2018

The route was just brilliant!

Unbelievable tea stops and lunches! There is no need for anyone to take any food supplies with them. The table decorations were great too!

I can’t give enough good comments on the tour organisation other than outstanding and exceeded expectations!

Just continue doing what you do so well!
