The hotels were just fantastic!

Hello! :)

Thank you for a fantastic holiday! We absolutely loved it! It was perfectly planned and organized. The route was very "friendly" with very little hills. And the distance was very manageable too. We loved the country lanes and the big roads were practically empty during the mid day too, which was very positive for me, because I don't feel comfortable cycling amongst cars.

I loved that the last day we could spend in the town with the shops. As much as I loved spending whole week away from the people and shops, I thought I will have to buy gifts for my children in airport. :D It just shows your attention to detail planning this trip. :)

The hotels were just fantastic! Every hotel had their wow factor. They were so different, but absolutely beautiful, full of character! It was so lovely to come back from days cycling and arrive to such a beautiful place!

Every person in your company (and hotels too) we spoke to or met were very friendly and supportive. :)

When we were looking for our holidays, we wanted to be away from the crowds and traditional tourist places and, ideally, go cycling. When I found your company online, I saw that as a sign. :D I didn't look much further, because you offered everything we wanted!

The only two things for consideration - the weather can considerably affect the enjoyability of the trip. I think we were very lucky because the temperatures didn't go much above 30 degrees. Just one day was hotter, which made cycling very hard, and no amount of water would help, because it was so warm I could make tea in it. :D

The other thing - be careful where you stop on the road sides. We had punctures three times because of the thorns stuck in the tires. The second puncture was because we didn't realize that thorns can be stuck inside the tire too, not just outside. But everything was alright, my husband repaired both tires (in the middle of a beautiful hotel room :D ) easily.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Mallorca! It was all about nature, countryside and cycling during the day with a touch of luxury in the evenings! :)

Thank you sooo much!!!

Best wishes,

Inese and Gundars, UK.

Hi Inese and Gundars. So glad to see you enjoyed the tour and to see you enjoy the same things we do. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Jaime, AFTC.

A most enjoyable and memorable cycle

Many thanks for having organised a wonderful cycling holiday for us in Mallorca. We have just returned to Dublin having spent the past week cycling from the south to north coast.

The accommodation which you had selected for us was exactly what we needed, small hotels with character.

I had a small problem with my tripometer on day one but the bicycle people sorted it out as soon as possible. A most enjoyable and memorable cycle.

Michael Griffin, Ireland.

We would definitely recommend you

We had the most fantastic time; from the accommodation, the whole route which was well planned, the bikes were fine. We had a replacement from Andrea who was so helpful and pleasant.

Must mention Tony who collected us at the airport, he was wonderful and helped me find a pharmacy for tablets I had left at home. The staff everywhere were helpful and did not mind helping us to torturing the Spanish language.

Maps, routes book was good no feedback on them.

We loved seeing the countryside, especially the windmills and the dry stone walls very similar to where I used to live in England. We just loved the whole cycle trip as we have not been out on a cycle holiday due to different things in our life.

We would definitely recommend you which we do constantly and look forward to do another trip next year if we can. So a big, big thank you to you all.

Jane Hatherall, UK.

Many thanks Jane. So glad you enjoyed your time in Mallorca.

Jaime, AFTC.

the hotels were wonderful

We enjoyed this tour very much. The hotels were wonderful, the scenery spectacular. Sometimes the directions were not so obvious but what a nice place to get lost and find yourself again!

Mallorca is a treasure for all.

Marie Daoust-Foukal, Canada.

Thanks Marie. We have reviewed the roadbooks instrucions since you came in late July and found a couple of ambiguities which we have not corrected. We aim to keep everyone on track!

Jaime, AFTC.

Great cycling holiday

Great cycling holiday on a beautiful island, Mallorca Coast to Coast.

We really were "away from the crowds".

Catherine Roantree, Ireland

the tips email just before we toured was great.

As you will read we did enjoy this ride and thank you to you and your company for organising this tour, which we enjoyed immensely.

Keep doing what you do so well with the communication spot on and the tips email just before we toured was great.

The ride we found much easier than last years, The Green Coast which we were pleased that we hired ebikes. This year we could have easily ridden regular bikes but what we did was to cycle unassisted mostly. It was nice to be able to turn the power on when we needed it, which wasn't often. The ride itself was fabulous .....see my FB comments.

There 2 points we would like to feed back to you re room for improvement-

The Garmin GPS device we hired was outdated and we had trouble seeing the screen and had trouble with the device staying powered on despite changing the batteries twice. If you missed a direction then you couldn't find your way as the route loaded on the GPS was only shown......couldn't expand out to see where you were. We resorted to using the trip daily notes and maps.

Accomodation and breakfasts were mostly fantastic , however with the exception of one Can Calco in Moscari. The accomodation and the breakfasts were great at the hotel but the owners were off site and so when we arrived there was no one to greet us and give us information about the village.

We hope to do another ride next year, so will be in touch.

Susan Harvey, Australia.

Thanks Susan for the feedback. He are looking at using different GPS models now and we no longer use Hotel Can Calco. We have changed to a much better hotel near Moscari. Thanks for helping us improve!

Jaime, AFTC.

we used all the swimmingpools
We have had some marvellous days in Mallorca with your firm.

Everything was succesful, nice and good bicycles, good and straightforwardly maps and informations, very nice hotels with exelent service and food.

Yes we do take a swim in the ocean (port Pollenca and sea in Campos) and we used all the swimmingpools.

We have nothing at all to complain.

We hope to join your tours another time.

Marit and Tom, Norway.
