Customer Testimonials

"Our four day tour was wonderful. Lanyon picked us up as promised at our end point and drove us to the start so we'd have the car handy at the end of our ride.

The routes were lovely - well planned and easy to follow - and we were given excellent maps too. As for the hills - well we got used to them and I feel very proud for having managed them all.”

Adam Davies and Susan Blackmore, Devon. South Coast tour (5 days and 5 nights)

"We had a fantastic tour. The electric bikes were strong with enough torque allowing us to have fun while traveling the hilly roads."

Jurgen & Reinhild Stamm Stein, Wuppertal - Germany

The Cornish Tour (6 days, 5 nights)


"With electric assist and two batteries "on board", it was much easier to climb the many hills in Cornwall.

Along with the wonderful care from Lanyon and the very helpful step-by-step description, you can enjoy the incredibly beautiful Cornish countryside a little more comfortably with an electric bike."

Kerstin & Falko Kraeusche, Rehfelde, Germany

The Cornish Tour (10 days, 10 nights)


“The landscape was fantastic with a lot of nice scenery, and varied with both coastal paths and inland greenery. Be prepared for hilly roads and narrow tracks, I would recommend the cyclist is fairly fit to enjoy the tour more. My husband and I were very satisfied with our accommodation and our rented bikes. We fell in love with the small towns as we passed.”

Hagersten, Sweden.

Cornish Tour (7 days, 6 nights).


“Our itinerary was fantastic and perfectly organised.

We stayed at 11 wonderful places; really charming B&Bs and lovely inns and hotels. I couldn’t say which was best, because each was special and they were so different. The hosts were really friendly and very helpful. Thank you so much for the best holiday we've had for many years!”

Katja Neuhäußer Schenefeld, Germany. Custom tour (21 days and 21 nights)




“We spent a beautiful summer’s week in Cornwall, it was a pleasant and exciting experience. The landscapes we saw, crossing the hills and plains are still in our hearts and maybe one day we will come back. We have good memories of the warm stay in the inns and the Cornish ales, it was wonderful."

Testimonial from a Penwith Tour (3 days, 2 nights), a cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"We had a fantastic trip. In particular we enjoyed seeing the Cornish countryside at our own pace, as well as being able to explore some of the towns en route."

A testimonial of the 8 day, 7 nights Cornish Tour, a self-guided cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"A cycle tour like this is an excellent opportunity to experience a country you don't know. Even though we had rather mediocre weather conditions we have very good memories of our tour in August 2008. Mapping material and service were excellent and in difficulties (i.e missing the ferry at St. Mawes) Lanyon organised immediately a suitable solution. We really recommend Cornish Cycle Tours to anyone!"

Testimonial of the Penwith Tour (3 days, 2 nights), a cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"We enjoyed every moment of our Cornish Cycle Tour. The spectacular scenery, picturesque villages, traffic-free coastal tracks and quiet country roads were unforgettable. Detailed directions and easy-to-read maps ensured we never lost our way, and the hills meant we worked off those full English breakfasts."

Jodie and Peter Kewley,

Testimonial of the Cornish Tour (4 days, 3 nights), a cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"An excellent tour, well mapped out and organised, all you have to do is decide where to stop to eat or take photographs. The scenery is stunning and the route used roads which were cyclist friendly and saw very little traffic. Whichever option you take will give you a wonderful insight into Cornwall at your own pace and with plenty of optional places to visit."

A testimonial from a Penwith Tour (3 days, 2 nights), a cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"Going on a Cornish Cycling Tour is a fantastic way to spend a long weekend. It was great being out in the fresh air and getting loads of exercise, while seeing the beautiful Cornish countryside, lovely little villages and breathtaking sea views. An added bonus is that the tour makes your trip hassle-free by organising your bikes, bag transfer and maps - all you have to do is turn up!"

Emma McGregor and Maria Kubran,

Penwith Tour (3 days, 2 nights).

Testimonial of the Cornish Tour (8 days, 7 nights), a cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"Starting in Wadebridge we cycled along the coastline and visited many nice villages such as Mousehole and St Ives. We were surprised by the sometimes hilly landscape, but starting every day with a fulll Cornish breakfast gave us the energy. The service of Cornish Cycle Tours was excellent; the bikes were in very good condition; the map with daily routes was very helpful; the accommodation was cosy; and our luggage was always at our room in time. And the weather was fine!"

Cornish Tour (8 days, 7 nights).

Testimonial of the Penwith Tour (3 days, 2 nights) from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"Our tour was designed to show us as much of Cornwall and Scilly as possible. Our wish was granted and we were introduced to some fantastic landscapes. We recommend the Scilly part of the trip to anyone who appreciates undisturbed nature and peace. 

We were there for four days (including the journey) and found this an ideal and stress-free way to get our first impression of the islands."

Thomas & Elisabeth Becker, Rüschegg - Switzerland

Testimonial of the Cornish Tour (6 days, 5 nights), a cycling holiday from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"The trip was well planned with excellent maps - nice roads and paths with little traffic. The bikes worked fine and the lodging was mainly in very genuine old pubs. We took our time during the days, stopped at several places and sights as we passed by and arrived at our daily destinations late afternoon. It's easy for us to recommend Cornish Cycle Tours since it worked so well for us."

Lena and Gustav Tibblin,

Cornish Tour (6 days, 5 nights).

Testimonial of 4 day, 3 night bespoke tour from Cornish Cycle Tours.

"We had a fantastic trip with Cornish Cycle Tours. Right from the start we knew it would be a superb experience -  we arrived at the station to be met by our phenomenally helpful guide, driven to our B&B and shown the tailor-made waterproof route maps for our three day tour of the stunning Cornish area. Throughout our guide was available to assist and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. All in all - a superb well organised trip in an idyllic part of the world."
