Cycle Cilento & the Amalfi Coast

Cycle Cilento & Amalfi Coast

5
I had a such a great time. It was the first time I had been on holiday on my own and I'd been worried about having to meet perfect strangers and spend a week together but I met a group of really lovely people and felt I was amongst friends from the first evening. Paulo, our guide and Rafielle (apologies for the spelling) our mechanic were really helpful and went out of their way to ensure we were all well looked after and had a good time. I would definitely go on another trip.

Great riding, starting on the quiet roads in the south and working up to the Amalfi coast ride. Hilly, but not hard hills. A very attentive and informative guide who gave us lots of cultural and historic information which made the trip more interesting. Interesting side trips.

Cycle Cilento & the Amalfi Coast

Best experience for a solo traveller

5
This was my first experience of travelling solo and my first experience doing an organized cycle tour. So I had a few concerns about whether I would like the group, would the cycling be interesting and challenging enough, would I meet people that I could become long term friends with. Well I should not have worried. The group dynamics were fantastic with a range of ages and professions from all corners of the world and we all got on wonderfully. The cycling was beautiful - I had heard so much about the Amalfi coast so was very surprised that the Cilento coast was even better to cycle with a little less traffic and a lot less touristy. And it was certainly challenging - not ever so much that you think you can't make it but even the fittest of us felt some of the long hills. And we did develop friendships that are enduring - even looking at more trips together. Two thumbs up to Paolo the guide - absolutely brilliant. Accomplishes everything with a smile on his face. He really did an outstanding job keeping us all on track and making sure we were all looked after. But the most pleasant surprise for me was how relaxed you become so quickly. Everything is taken care of for you so the 100 decisions you normally make on holiday such as "where shall we have lunch?" or "what time should we have breakfast or dinner?" are all taken care of for you. In fact by day 3 you didn't have to care about where you slept that night or how far you were going to cycle - you just got on the bike and knew everything would be taken care of. A really relaxing experience!

This sets the bar high...!

My first trip to Italy & my first group holiday; I'm very well travelled but had several reservations about an 'organised group tour' - all my concerns vanished quickly - this is a superb trip with a brilliant guide and I'd have NO reservations about recommending it. Just come prepared for some tough climbs! Hard cycling, views I'll never forget, delicious food particularly the first few days with lovely local suppliers sharing their produce, the insights into the life and culture of the region, stunning medieval villages, and most of all - great variety from the quiet pace of life, empty roads and warm welcome of the local people around gentle Cilento to the hectic & dramatic Amalfi coast - it just has it all!

The food and the views make the tough bits worthwhile!

An amazing trip with some brilliant fellow travellers. Never would have made it up some of those hills without the support of Paulo and the rest of the team. The cycling was tough at times but I think that was partly due to the heat. We had average temps between 30 and 35 degrees. There are some challenging climbs but what goes up must come down and everyone in the group made it through. I would recommend putting some time in on the bike before the holiday. Paulo is a great leader with excellent knowledge about the area as well as knowing all the best places to eat! On the final day we found a tour of the lemon groves in Amalfi which I would hugely recommend. It was advertised in the hotel and we had a great time learning about the history of lemon growing in the area as well as sampling some of the lovely food and drink they create! (www.amalfilemonexperience.it) Accommodation was all nice and the dinners were great-you definitely won't go hungry. Pools at all hotels except the last one but the beach was 2 minutes walk away. Take some insect repellant for the agriturismo.

This was a stunning cycle ride. The scenery was fantastic, the people very friendly and the food was delicious. We had a really friendly and supportive group and Paulo, Sara and Giovanni provided excellent leadership and support throughout. I think the rating as "moderate" was a little off the mark - unless you were fit and had some experience of challenging hills it may pose a tough challenge, particularly in the Italian heat. The accommodation was good throughout (although the farm residence was disappointing at breakfast with limited choice). During our lunch stops the food and value for money were excellent.

Fantastic trip, hard work (do some hill training before going - it will make it all the more enjoyable) but the scenery and food make it so worthwhile. The guide, Paolo is fantastic, great local knowledge, especially when it comes to where to eat! We were told on the first day to forget the words "flat" and "diet"........he was right!
