Reviews for Terceira cycling holiday in the Azores


review 9 Sep 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Terceira is a lovely varied island. The cycle routes combined lots of different terrains. Itís quite hilly but there are some amazing down hill slopes to enjoy ! There are some excelllent places to swim too.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We felt pretty prepared - we were given a GPS but I like to have a map to get the bigger picture. A pannier would be a good idea too as the bikes had racks. We didnít have one with us and used rucksacks instead. On some routes you go quite away without any refreshment stops so snacks, water bottles are essential......most of the hotels had no kettle. I would definitely take a travel kettle next time for a cup of tea in hotel room !

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, locally employed people. Our guide Tiago was very informative of the island , places to eat, swim, visit and he really knew the routes too.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It was excellent, highly recommended. Lovely rural scenery, quiet lanes for cycling.
