Robert T

I wanted to thank you all for the wonderful self-guided bike tour my wife and I did 2 weeks ago. I loved every second of it. The bikes were incredible and the directions were so easy to follow. The routes were great and the hotels were amazing. We look forward to riding with Cicloposse again next year.

Mark and Julie

I would like to thank you for a fantastic trip that you organised for Julie and myself in may last year We have been telling everyone how much fun we had so don’t be surprised if you get a few more Australian enquiries Hope you both have a great year

Kathy and Rick P.

Rick and I just arrived back in the USA and wanted to take a moment to let you know that we had a wonderful Gravel Bike Trip. We thank you for the extraordinary job organizing, responding and planning the tour. The hotels were lovely and everyone was so helpful. Your Bike Trip Handbook was very helpful and will be a treasured souvenir from our trips. We will definitely look into taking another bike tour with your company and have already passed the word on to many of our friends and relatives. Maybe Sardinia! We do not have Instagram but will share our five star rating on sites listed. It was great working with you and I wish you the best with your tours this Summer. Thanks Again.

This was a fabulous experience in every sense – majestic 13th century towns, incredible vistas, wonderful caring guides, amazing farmhouse accomodation, a world class chef, a genuine family with local knowledge and a generous spirit wanting you to feel and live the Tuscan way.
We felt like we had the privilege to be brought into their world and didn’t want to leave. The cycling was outstanding and cooking lessons encouraging and informative – I highly recommend you do this!

Beautiful landscape, unique boutique hotels, great food and wonderful biking, basically describes our experience with Bike Tour Sardinia. We went from Alghero to Oristano, exploring the medieval towns and coast. Mauro arranged a relatively seamless and fabulous self-guided adventure, being consistently available, helpful and responsive. We had both e-bikes and standard, but for me, the e-bike added ease and the ability for further exploration and smiles. I highly recommend Bike Tour Sardinia as a way to explore this beautiful island.

Mauro and his excellent crew provided us a most memorable bicycle tour from Alghero to Gergei. He is truly a veteran and arranged excellent hotels, restaurants, food and wine tastings, cooking classes and a week cycling through back roads of gorgeous land and seascapes through this charming island. Delectable antipasti, the most succulent roast pig you’ll ever eat, seafood, lamb and lots of Vermentino were a gourmand’s dream. The level of professionalism could not have been greater. Beyond this, all three of these men were just exceptional people, sensitive to our needs as a group of 15 and very caring when small problems would occur. I cannot recommend this company more highly. Furthermore, Mauro is more than willing to arrange varios trips including self-guided brief or longer tours through much of Italy and nearby islands. The prices are very fair and the experience unforgettable! E un viaggio favoloso!

Rob Flowers

Thanks Mauro and team. We had an excellent trip. The organisation and attention to detail was beyond expectation. The selection of places we stayed in exceptional. I can highly reccommend Bike Tours Sardinia. Thanks again.

Exceeded expectations, beautiful coastline rides in Sardinia. Good communication from a member of the office staff meant we were confident everything was ready for our trip. Good standard throughout and we enjoyed the accommodation, especially the excellent food! Delicious food throughout at accommodations, lunches provided were superb! Electric bike was brilliant, much more power than the ebike I use at home. Hybrid bike was also good. Our tour leader was lovely; caring, sympathetic, enthusiastic and also a firm and decisive leader. She was very efficient and hard-working and made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. She catered for the differing abilities of the group effortlessly and her knowledge and personality made cycling with her an absolute pleasure.

What an opportunity to see the Tuscan countryside in such an intimate way as cycling / mountain biking. How else could we get a guided tour – the best trails, lodging and meals all figured out for us?

When one guest lacked stamina the first day, Skedaddle got him an e-bike and for the rest of the days he did great. When another guest needed stitches a guide took her to the hospital in the van right away. These are examples of good service.
