"Thanks so much for all you did to make our trek easier! Yes it was breezy and quite a muddy walk at times but we finished! We really enjoyed not having to worry about luggage! Your service was great!" Karen



"Thanks for a great vacation. Tour directions crystal clear. We really liked paths through crop fields, the small villages, the magnificent views. We debated this trip for a long time - it exceeded our expectations. Thanks. The 3 overnight stops were truly great." Mrs Hill- USA

"Excellent, friendly service.  Eager to please.  Very happy holiday! Thank you!" Mr & Mrs H - Germany


"I want to thank you very much for making Wendell's and my (and Belinda's for that matter) cycling trip so memorable. Your exceptional knowledge of seemingly everything to do with the Cotswolds (and England in general) made the trip quite informative in addition to fun. The scenery was magnificent, and the exercise was good for us too. All in all, it was a fantastic trip, and you helped make it that way. I will be happy to refer Compass Holidays to other people I know, and I am quite inclined to use your company again for myself." Mrs S H- USA

"Dear Compass Holidays This is an open letter to anyone considering a cycling vacation with you designed to give the prospective client a hint of the outstanding service that you have provided us and the many wonderful experiences that we have had while vacationing with you. One is immediately impressed with the extensive knowledge of their business and the area that Compass Holidays has. One's trip is carefully planned in advance by a firm that has taken time to determine exactly what your needs and wants are. In our case we wanted small country inns with the amenities that we were use to at home. It's obviously very important after a long day of cycling that the accommodations be pleasant and comfortable. Our overnights included a number of out of the way places that tourists would never find, but once discovered will never be forgotten. The only time we went wrong is when we insisted on following up on a "hot tip" on a hotel from an acquaintance at home, it was definitely not up to the Compass Holidays standard. Obviously, one organises a cycling vacation for the riding and here again Compass Holidays shines. The bikes we rented were new and well tuned. After experimenting, Compass has found that the combination bikes are the best for the wide variety of terrain and surfaces that the touring customer will encounter. We were very impressed with the routes that Compass selected for us. They took us down small country lanes through tiny hamlets where life has not changed for centuries. We had detailed maps and careful instructions that told us every turn to make. If one is apprehensive about the need for the kind of van support and company riders that American touring companies provide, we can assure you that it is unnecessary and could even detract from the quality of your experience. Every crossroad in England is well marked, the English people are anxious to provide directions and if you do experience a problem Compass Holidays is only a phone call away and will be on the spot faster than any travelling van to get you going again. In conclusion, we could not have been more pleased with the quality of our Compass Holidays vacation and heartily recommend it to any one who enjoys cycling and wants to really experience another country." Mr & Mrs H & S H - USA
