It was absolutely amazing! From start to finish we felt nothing but safe! Everything was explained in detail. We got to test drive a couple of times before we headed off. The scenery was unbelievable and the food was lovely. The guide Chris was out on his own! Alex too!

Brilliant tour guide and bikes. The only call out is that you pay per person with the view that you share a bike. If you want to have a bike each and there are 2 of you then you need to pay for 4 people - very strange!

Very good tour! Lots of stops for pictures and history. Alex was great! His English is very good and he’s good a very great sense of humor. I would go again heck yeah
