What Others Say

Customer feedback about our cycling and walking holidays is very important to us. Byways Breaks consistently get scores of 4s and 5s out of 5 for overall holiday experience and we get many customers returning to book cycling and walking holidays with us. In 2008 we were proud to be awarded for 'Best Holiday Experience'. Some of the comments we have received from our customers include:

 

"Everything worked out well. It was easier to be vegetarian than I expected. The path was beautiful, the weather better than expected and the B & Bs were magnificent. Now we know how well you organise holidays we will return if we plan another holiday in the UK.."

"We finished the Offa's Dyke Path yesterday and had a wonderful time. It was challenging at times but we thoroughly enjoyed it. I think you must have ordered perfect walking weather for us along with everything else!"

"I would like to thank you for your help with our walk on Offa's Dyke. As you know, your company was the only one that arranged bag transfer for those who had booked their own places to stay. Everything worked out perfectly. You were very kind, helpful and responded in a clear and direct way. I wanted to say that I always felt like I was in touch with a "real person" as opposed to a corporation. I would highly recommend your company. "

"My friend and I decided, at short notice, to walk Offa's Dyke Path. I contacted four organisations to see if they could help with arrangements: two claimed that they had insufficient notice to arrange accommodation. Carolyn, from Byways Breaks, responded to say she could help and gave us a competitive indicative budget. Within the space of a week she had made 'last minute' bookings of 11 night's accommodation and provided us with a detailed itinerary and luggage tags to enable our main packs to be transferred daily. Each of the B&Bs, pubs and farmhouses in which we stayed was superb and either provided an evening meal or recommended good places to eat. They also offered packed lunches, each of which was excellent. The luggage transfer worked without a hitch and when we finally picked up our main packs in Prestatyn we were very pleased that we had entrusted the organisation of our walk to Carolyn. I have made my own arrangements on previous long distance walks but would have no hesitation in using Byways Breaks again as it allowed us better to enjoy the tremendous countryside knowing that we had a decent meal and a comfortable bed at the end of each day and did not have to further damage our ageing knees by carrying a heavy pack for 180 miles!

"Thank you for making my walking holiday so enjoyable. All rooms were great and the luggage was always there waiting for me. Everyone was helpful and friendly and I reccomended you to many walkers along the way! I hope to do a Byways Break in the future. "
