This was our first time travelling with Exodus/Headwater but it won't be our last. This was a wonderful holiday taking in magnificent scenery in an area with an interesting history and fantastic hospitality. There's a few difficult climbs (especially the optional ride to Trevi on day 2) but the scenery is so beatiful it's worth the effort. The fitter you are the more you'll enjoy it. The accommodation was of a really good standard, with the hotels in Spello and Speleto being the stand outs for us, the former for its food and the latter for it's location. Friendly, helpful staff at all the places we stayed
Making it to the top of Montefalco in one hit, then enjoying the fantastic views and a wonderful lunch in the town square. There are many others - the beautiful medieval hilltop villages are all spectacular and the local cuisine is an inspiration in itself
John and Donna were always there to help, though fortunately we didn't need their assistance except for the transfers and moving the luggage between hotels. John's phone is on 24 hours a day should you need him which is a great safety net.
There's lots to do and see in Umbria so read up on the area and prioritise what you want to do. In hindsight we would have preferred to have flown to Perugia which is only a 25 minute car ride to Spello and would have saved a day travelling each way from Rome. Also Perugia is worth visiting in it's own right so provides an option to extend your stay. This was a great holiday for us, we would thoroughly recommend it
Some of the trip notes could do with updating. They sometimes referred to signs which weren't there or were overly complicated where a simple "straight on" would have done. That said if you read them carefully there's enough detail to get your where you want to go and the back up of the maps. John had thoughtfully marked the routes on the maps which was helpful on the occasions we strayed off piste.
Easy cycling in beautiful countryside, very quiet roads and excellent food.
The whole trip was brilliant and we were amazed by lack of traffic on this well chosen route. The four accommodations are all individual and difficult to compare. Each of them were of good quality with helpful staff and great dining experiences. Three of the four swimming pools were excellent, the pool at Spello was not so good, as it was smaller and in an area of shade.
The bikes were as new and well maintained.
There are two notable hills on the route, otherwise it is totally flat.
Javier was extremely helpful, a very nice person and our luggage arrived in our rooms before we arrived after the cycle rides.
He gave the most comprehensive and informative briefing. He clearly knows every inch of the route.
Don't hesitate to book this trip, you will enjoy it.
I left the maps on the bike overnight and one of the maps was taken. Even in such a nice hotel it only takes one individual, so don't leave anything on the bikes.
However the route notes are so good, we didn't need the maps.
Then you will need to make your own way to the next hotel by public transport, or pay for a taxi. Please remember you will also have your bikes, which need to be safely transported as well. You can also phone the local taxi company (details in route notes) who transport your luggage, and see if they can give you a lift. Please note this may not always be possible.
Usually by a local representative or a taxi company. You will need to leave your luggage at the hotel reception between 08:00hrs and 10:00hrs on days of hotel change - the route notes you receive with your final documents will confirm the exact time. It must be marked with the luggage labels (provided by Exodus or at the start hotel), CLEARLY VISIBLE, showing your name and the total number of bags that you are having transferred.
No, a quality local hire bike is included in the overall price of this cycling holiday.
If you prefer the familiarity of your own bike, you may of course bring it along. A discount of GBP90 will apply if you do so.
