Trip of a lifetime!
Lands End to John O'Groats August 2011
I am writing to thank you for an excellent tour from LE to JOG. The tour by far exceeded my expectations. As I mentioned at our celebration dinner, it seems important to you for us to enjoy, not just endure the trip. My favorite places to stay were the aged buildings with creaky floors and narrow stairs (still clean and comfortable with good food and a hot shower). I believe your soft-spoken and patient manner helped secure the sense of camaraderie that made the trip a pleasure.
I thank you also for helping me with my pre-trip questions.
By way of contrast, I would mention what I observed at the pub in Mey where we gathered on the last day. Each time one of our riders came through the door, there was a spontaneous cheer from the group already assembled. It was not planned or forced, but a genuine appreciation for the success of each person. Also in the same pub were the riders of another company. Each time one of their riders came through the door, there was just a glance and shrug of the shoulders. I find this a very telling story.
I thank you and Nick for leading us through the small villages and narrow roads on a very scenic route. It was a great challenge and adventure.
J Jenkins Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
The tour exceeded my expectations. I had planned this as a once in a lifetime opportuntity & now have the memories to cherish. The added bonus was the chance to establish friendhips & to share the daily experiences with other riders.
Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
I was highly impressed with how slick everything was. You were dealing with a lot on a daily basis but never got rattled. Both Steve & Nick were excellent. I felt fully supported at all times.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to other people, in fact I already have. I would also be interested in future tours aswell.
S Moore Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
Just a quick note to say how much I really enjoyed the 2 weeks. I thought the whole group gelled together remarkably well and with lots of laughs and encouragement along the way. All over far too soon.
It’s taken several days to come down from the high of day after day of scenery, camaraderie, eating, riding and witty banter!
A special thanks to you and Nick for making it all so relaxed, friendly and exceptionally well organised. 10 out of 10.
Hope the August tour goes well without you………a very tough act to follow.
Please do let me know as soon as you have more details of your proposed European tour……. I could be the first to sign up!
M Taylor Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
Just wanted to say a further massive thank you to you both for an absolutely fabulous LEJOG holiday/challenge. It was all I hoped it would be and much more, enjoyed the whole ride and really appreciated the fantastic support/organisation and support from yourselves.
Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
The route was fantastic – great mix of rural roads & NCN routes – we did very little cycling on busy roads & where we did it was unavoidable. The route up through Scotland in particular was brilliant.
The lunches were absolutely fantastic – a great choice & just the right type of food. Provided the opportunity to meet up before the afternoon cycling. Breakfasts at both B&B’s & YHA’s were also very good. Never felt hungry for the whole ride.
Both Steve & Nick did their own individual roles to perfection – in addition it was done in such a way as you never felt a nuisance asking for anything, asking advice etc. I thought the ‘atmosphere’ that you generated/fostered within the group was first class!
The tour was everything I hoped it would be & much more. I have never been on any tours before so was a bit apprehensive as to what to expect & whether I’d cope, but I can honestly say that I loved the while experience – even the rainy day out of Slaidburn – a real achievement!
C Ball Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
Steve & Nick were first class – hard working, well informed, constantly thinking forward and so good humoured – the pair of you should give classes.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour – did what it said on the tin. Peak Tours did a sterling job.
D Anderson Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
The tour organisation was excellent, I couldn’t fault it. Also the bike pack & return service was great – bike got back quickly & had been very well packed.
Hats off to both Steve & Nick for unfailing patience, good humour, hard work & stamina in coping with everything we & fate could throw at you and still come up smiling.
N Scott Lands End to John O'Groats July 2011
Highly recommended – would definitely recommend to anyone else thinking about doing this challenge as well as any other challenges. The best organised tour I have been on by a mile!
S Swann Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011
Just had a great time. I think the relaxed way it runs suited me perfectly. If I felt like trying to beat Steve to the destination, that was fine. Other days take it easy and ride at the back, again fine. I saw one group in Keswick who were all dressed in the same firms jackets and were in a very orderly single file, that would have got right up my nose!
J Billingham Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011
Steve's gormet spreads were great. Good variety & quality of food & nice option to have hot drinks, top effort!
The tour was really well run. I would happily recommend to others. A great way to see the UK!.
V Anstiss Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011
I really enjoyed the route - it was a bit of everything & we managed to stay off busy roads which was great.
The lunches & snack stops were sensational - I was amazed & really pleased at the variety of options and it meant that no matter what you felt like there was always something good to eat.
The tour organisation was brilliant. I was really impressed & really enjoyed it - would have happily cycled back to Lands End!
D Irvine Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the great organisation that obviously went into the Lejog tour we have just finished. There was almost nothing that could have been better from the moment we arrived in St Just (I can’t believe that was only 2 weeks ago).
The accommodation was good (and The Crask Inn was just fantastic) the lunches were brilliant, the route was excellent, as were the Route Notes (whenever I felt the need to read them) and the support we received from you and Nick was just superb (especially the support you gave to me after my fall).
If I ever do anything like this again, it will definitely Peak Tours that I turn to first, and I’ll continue to recommend you to anyone who asks.
Thanks again and all the best for now.
J Norman Lands End to John O'Groats April 2011
The route was fantastic and I was really pleased we stayed far enough West to do the Lake District which I thought was a real highlight of the trip. Too many good days to mention but the last day ride as far as Bettyhill was particularly fantastic and I loved the trip up the Welsh border and the long, long downhill to Taunton racecourse was brilliant!
Bags were always available and in the right place, lunch was always where it was expected to be, evening meals were booked – spot on. Left us with nothing to think about other than getting up and riding, which is exactly what we wanted.
It was absolutely brilliant. Couldn’t have hoped for a better two weeks. Only problem is it has given me a taste for it and I am already wondering how I will find enough holidays next year to do it again!!!
J Cashen Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010
Had a fantastic time and wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend to others. A big thank you to both!
Carol P Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010
I loved the route and thought it was very well planned – taking us quickly through built up areas and along mainly quiet cycle-friendly roads. Some of the route was not particularly suitable for a road bike but generally there was an alternative route so that was good.
Really helpful, friendly, warm hearted team.
Best holiday for a very long time!
Carol T Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010
We felt the organisation was overwhelmingly accommodating and friendly and had a great impression that nothing was too much trouble.
Mark, S Lands End to John O'Groats September 2010
Loved every minute, even the rain didn’t seem so bad when in a group. Both yourself & Nick did a cracking job, many thanks.
