After a memorable week completing the Raid, I have to say I was highly impressed with the service.
Starting with your staff, the professionalism, support and ability to manage a group with varied ability was excellent. Ed and Dave were fantastic guides and top blokes. Ian and Ivan provided great support throughout the week.
The hotels were all clean and comfortable throughout the week, and I felt great value for the overall price of the trip.
In terms of food, I would have like to have liked a bit more variety for dinner. I think we had pork and pasta for three consecutive evenings for example. In the mornings, it would have been nice to have some oats/porridge to get us prepped for the day. I love pastries (especially when in France) but it’s not the best fuel for the day. Lunch was fine.
The route was spectacular and clearly eclipses the official raid route. The only suggestion I would make is regarding the final climb of day 1. It was absolutely savage and put the fear of god into the entire group for the week ahead. We all love a challenge but I think a lot of people burned far too many matches on that climb and was one for many to forget rather then celebrate as an achievement. If you can find another way around that miserable thing, I’m sure many wouldn’t be too disappointed.
Overall – brilliant value, top craic and thoroughly enjoyed the week with Stuart Hall. Would definitely use you guys again.
