What our customers say:
The accommodation was beautifully renovated with modern facilities. Welcoming hosts and excellent breakfasts.
Appreciate the variety of terrain and points of interest in both days of this walk. Length about right for reasonably fit walkers. Bakewell and delightful overnight stop with good choice of eating places.

This was our first visit to the Peak District. The area itself exceeded our expectations and the tour was an excellent introduction to the area. The walking itself was challenging for us but the reward at the top was worth it.!
A special mention for Stan who was so helpful with extra info about where to eat etc.
A very lovely walking route taking in the best of the area. Beautiful towns and scenery. We would certainly recommend to others. Stan was always a friendly face in the mornings.
C. Roberts 2018
Excellent variety in terms of landscape and terrain. Really good introduction to the area.
Parsons House accommodation and David were great. The quirky décor was fun and the breakfast filling.
Accommodation all very comfortable and excellent breakfasts. Made to feel very welcome by our friendly hosts.
Route very interesting. We enjoyed the variations of scenery with each days walk. The detours in to the villages were very worthwhile. The distances each day were ideal for our pace giving time to look at places of interest if we wanted to without feeling pressured for time, spot on! We appreciated ‘Stan our bag man’ making contact on the first morning which re assured us we would have our bags at our next night accommodation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and can’t really think of any improvements, you seem to have got a good balance. We had amazing weather, so perhaps we were experiencing the walk at its best. However, had the weather been bad, I still think it would have been enjoyable, perhaps faster walking and more time spent in the pubs so conveniently placed along the way!
Back home again following a fabulous 4 days on the Glacial Gorges walk. Yes, it was very hot at times, but with the varied terrane there was often a cooling breeze when up high, trees and water when down in the valleys, so it was not a problem. Villages at points when the water bottles needed filling.
All the accommodation was very comfortable and welcoming with breakfast that set us up for the day.
It was very reassuring to meet Stan on the Sunday morning, so we could set off knowing our bags would be at the B&B that night for us.
We were blown away by the scenery, we both live in stunning parts of the UK - N.Ireland & Shropshire so we are quite spoilt. The Peaks did not disappoint, the walk showed us so much variety up hill & down dale!
Beautiful villages and we appreciated all the historical and local information provided. It was exciting to recognise the picture on the front of the walk booklet when we got there and then to walk in that gorge.
The accommodation provided was very good. Each place was special in tis own way, all were comfortable and convenient. We sure enjoyed the breakfasts and found our hosts at every location friendly and interesting people. And so varied, from the cosy old cottage in Castleton to the relative luxury in Buxton to the faded glory of the Beresford Arms in Ashbourne. The latter reminded us of the Hume Hotel in Nelson, BC, a remnant of the glory days of the late 19th century silver mining boom.
We’ve never done a trip of this type and thoroughly enjoyed it. The scenery is outstanding and varied, the towns are pleasant, the history is interesting. The cycling was close to the far edge of our abilities, but that gave us a sense of accomplishment, daily and at the end.

David was very welcoming, a great host. The accommodation was a bit ‘quirky’, but we liked it a lot.
All the accommodation was brilliant, couldn’t fault any of them.
The food provided was excellent. The sight of the red checked table cloth was something to behold! Was like a banquet’s feats!
The group size was just right. Everyone settled in very quickly and you naturally ride with those with a similar ability.
I honestly cannot fault a single thing. I’m not just ticking ‘excellent’ for easiness, I just loved every minute from start to finish. I have already booked my next tour with you guys next month and I cannot wait!
It was my first tour and I didn’t know what to expect, but it was perfect. Roll on September!!
I honestly don’t have any recommendations or suggestions for improvement, you have thought of everything. Keep doing what you’re doing!
Sue Hallworth July 2018
All 3 hotels were clean, well maintained and comfortable. I was very impressed by the staff at the golf hotel who were very friendly and welcoming.
Scotch Arms Mews is a candidate for one of the best B&Bs I’ve ever used; pleasant, clean, comfortable and with delightful staff – nothing was too much trouble. The continental breakfast buffet was excellent.
The George was equally fine, good breakfast and a lovely setting.
Great choice of route; pleasant quiet roads and come fantastic cycle tracks with amazing and varied scenery.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience. My first ride with Peak Tours but I’ll be booking more soon, certainly for next year and beyond but maybe another this year too. A number of riders in the group had done multiple trips with Peak Tours and I can see why. I’ll certainly be recommending Peak Tours to my local club members.
Everything is so well organised. I don’t think it can be improved. Thank you.
Norman Bateman July 2018
Another well thought out Peak Tour
Nigel Goffin September 2018
First tour we’ve ever done. Having the options for shorter/no-ride days was great for me. Challenges for my husband
Helen Brown September 2018
We felt that each day the route built our cycling strength and anticipation to the climax on day 6. Well done whoever designed that! We did the ‘long option’ on day 6 and the extra bit was majestic – perhaps this was undersold to the group because only 4 of us did it.
The food provided was absolutely top notch! Picnic lunches were great, with healthy choices. Same for brew stop with sliced fruit, nuts & seeds etc. available (we much prefer this to chocolate bars, fizzy drinks etc.) Group evening meals/lunches all had great food.
Nick and Tanja Cooper September 2018
Full marks to the team who overcame a breakdown to one of their vans with no impact on our days. Pickup and drop off to airports and transport on first and last day was smooth and stress free (for us!!)
I booked this tour after experiencing the area on the C2M tour. It is a cycling paradise. This was my 4th Peak Tour.
Alan Thomas September 2018
Nice mix of ‘quirky’ and modern accommodation. Very friendly & helpful staff at most hotels.
As a 9-tour veteran I think this is one of your best trips. Well done!
Stephen Warnock September 2018
A really caring set up.
Thank you, lovely company and a great holiday!
Anne Levitt June 2018
Hotels were good and especially the hotel in Apt (Saint Anne) where the owners were very helpful.
Robin McKenzie June 2018
The picnics in the French countryside are great and usually accompanied by a good spot with views making the most of the scenery.
As we have found the support and organisation offered by Peak Tours is first class and now having done 4 tours and a 5th in August, I am firmly a devoted PT client.
Dave Richards June 2018
Provence is beautiful. No negatives!
Road surfaces so good – even the farm roads/tracks are better than the UK roads!
Pauline and Mick Bedwell June 2018
Having done a number of charity events with other companies, you are head and shoulders above them. The organisation was generally excellent.
Paul McGreary June 2018
Rooms were better quality than expected. Nice touch having bags in our rooms on arrival.
Stunning views and villages, a very nice route.
Graham Watson June 2018
The route was very well signposted.
Beautiful scenery, especially on the second day.
Nice to have lunches included and places were all ready for our arrival.
Virginia Knox September 2018
You have succeeded very well with organising a difficult task.
At the end of July, I shall be 74 and if I can be so positive of the ride at my age, then it shows you have got it right.
Graham Miller May/June 2018
Loved the food and backup snack van. Very well organised and a very welcome sight on route.
The tour organisation was extremely good. Cannot fault anything or anybody.
Maria Beaumont May/June 2018
I enjoyed the route. As an ‘average’ cyclist I appreciated the variety and balance between 2nd ‘steepish’ day and 3rd flatter.
Overall the route was very pretty.
H Matheson May/June 2018
Pre-tour; felt the organisation and assistance was excellent and always felt we could ring and clarify anything we were unsure of.
We really enjoyed the tour and felt the overall organisation both before and during the tour were excellent.
Looking forward to doing another tour with Peak Tours.
The tour, as per the year before, was brilliant and my only comment would be keep doing the same great job.
We would and do keep recommending it to others.
Many thanks to all involved in providing a great cycling holiday.
Mary and Joe Slate
It was the extra touches, the van with food and drink aboard. Finding your luggage in your room was totally unexpected. The champagne at the end, plus the mug and certificate. All add up to a caring company.
Gordon Pells September 2018
All the food provided was great. The snack van was amazing – water, fig rolls, fruit, tea, coffee, nuts, biscuits etc.
All the food at B&Bs and pubs/cafes were great. Was worried about the BBQ stop – however the fish & chips were brilliant.
The group size was good as everyone went in to natural smaller groups. There was great camaraderie amongst everybody – the group was very helpful and supportive towards each other.
The tour organisation was amazing!! It was lovely to receive a certificate and a mug, thank you. Champagne/prosecco reception was very nice too!
