 1  Gethin Jones / Thanks for ll the advice
I just wanted to say thank you for an excellent holiday, great guiding and marvelous humor - it felt like staying with friends rather than just staying somewhere on holiday.

 2  Dave and Gill Warner / Re Holiday February 2008
Many thanks for a super week mountain biking on the beautiful island of Cyprus. This holiday ticked all the right boxes for interesting and exciting riding plus first class accommodation, food and hospitality.

I would recommend your holidays to anyone of any age who enjoys this kind of holiday in the full knowledge they will not be disappointed.

 3  Graham Hooker / Thanks for great day out
Hi Helen and Alistair,

Just to repeat our thanks for a really great day out last Saturday. We all enjoyed it immensely. Such fun, speed and scenery. A superb idea for the uplift and the all round planning. Hope to make it again for a
repeat next year; and another route in addition perhaps.

 4  Steve Wainwright / Trip feedback
A brilliant mountain bike destination and holiday, I went for 2 weeks last October and returned for another 2 in May. I will go there again, for sure. The area is beautiful, there are dozens of different cycle routes some tough and some easy, and the guides (Helen & Alistair) do everything they can to make sure everyone has a fantastic holiday. And everyone did!

 5  Phil Cheek / Thanks
Just a quick note to say thanks again for your hospitality & attention to making our week so enjoyable.

 6  Sarah Christmas / Thanks
Thanks for an absolutely brilliant time, it really feels like we've been away for ages and I maintain that's a measure of holiday time well-spent.

 7  Yvonne Behar / Thank you so much
Thank you both so much for a brilliant mountain biking holiday. You
tailermade the holiday to suit us both
perfectly, organising some testing runs for Laurie and brilliant downhills
for me and even managing to find a 5 star beach so I could waterski ! .
Thanks for taking us to see the places we would never have found on our
own, the scenery was breathtaking and the long lingering delicious lunches
were legendary. Especially memorable was the the Tulou stew at Andreas
Kouppas stone ... view more castle Tavern !! Heaven.!
Thoroughly professional in every respect we loved the bikes and we enjoyed
your company enormously.

I'm back in the UK now (it's still hot here!) and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks once again for the bike ride.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day and the route was superb.
I'll come back one day to tackle the singletrack!
