How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Samu was very helpful and laidback in his attitude towards us and rode with all members of the group irrespective of cycling ability.Recommended some great restaurants for evening meals.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Take or hire a road bike since the bikes provided are like tanks to ride! Females should opt for gents (crossbar) bikes since when going off road downhill(only very occassionally)they offer greater stability.Take your own saddle, I didn't and had the aches and pains as a consequence.
Do you have anything else to add?
It was nice to be based in only two hotels for the duration of the trip so that you weren't living out of a suitcase and moving on to a different hotel/town every night.
