As seen in the Press...
Experienced cycling-tour company Skedaddle runs plenty of mountain bike holidays, many in the UK. One of the stand-out trips, however, is a nine-day, vehicle-supported tour across the stunning Jebel Sirwa mountain range in Morocco, sleeping under the stars in the Sahara and camping with nomads in the mountains. The trip will take bikers past ancient kasbahs and traditional villages, with pit stops for mint teas and in the odd oasis to cool off in.

An absolutely wonderful trip.
A great bunch of like minded people and terrific guides. Saaid is a great leader and knows plenty about the area and history. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for an unforgettable cycling holiday!
It may not be the cheapest holiday available but the value here is worth it. The accommodation and food was great.
It could not have been any better. Fantastic!
Everyday was fantastic. Riding up on to the plateau possibly the favourite. When the trip was first booked we thought it was a little expensive. However, after experiencing such a great trip I think it was very good value for money. The service was first class from beginning to end.
I really didn't want to come home!
A fantastic holiday – one I will remember for a very long time. Fantastic riding, stunning scenery and excellent guides and support team.
Saaid was outstanding – everything you would wish for – knowledgable, professional, a good sense of humour and always smiling! Nothing was too much trouble. He led the support team professionally and has obviously fostered a great team spirit amongst them as they were all friendly, helpful, professional and worked well as a team. I was very impressed.

We were all looked after extremely well...
Saiid is a gem, and couldn’t be more helpful, more cheery, more accommodating or more flexible. We were all looked after extremely well. Mohammed, Omar and the team were great fun, patient, kind, trustworthy and hard working under tough conditions. Safe driving, great food, great fun.
Skedaddle surpassed my high expectations...
I took my own bike and on returning to the hotel in Marrakech I found my bike had been cleaned for me! Cannot ask for more than that! Saaid (Tour Guide) was in control from start to finish. Where changes needed to be made, he made them without fuss. He was always there to answer questions and did so with enthusiasm and a smile. A great ambassador for Skedaddle.
Unquestionably I would recommend Saddle Skedaddle to my friends. In fact I have.
Yes, I had fun with a good group of people and an excellent leader – bicycle mender and water wallah. Morocco is a really interesting place and this was one of the best cycling holidays i’ve had!
This was a fantastic trip and I got to see some amazing countryside that changed dramatically each day.
I did think before I went that it was a bit expensive but now I have had the holiday I thought it was very good value. I found Saaid to be a very good leader. He maid sure we where looed after by the rest of the team and always took time to talk to us on a one to one basis. I thought the whole holiday was great and I am looking forward to booking my next trip with Skedaddle.
An excellent week – could not have been looked after better! Very professional, entertaining, charismatic, well organised! The best!
The service overall was excellent!
Saaid was a great guide who worked hard to ensure we all had a good time!
Saaid (tour leader) was a genius, always helpful, joking and encouraging. Omar the cook was outstanding at producing wonders at nothing.
The crew maintained the hire bikes to the highest standard. Excellent service.
