Testimonials For ISM

​Hi Eira! It is Maite from Spain again! Just a message to tell you that I spent a wonderful week and that both guides (Paolo and Christian) were superb.

Just a quick word of thanks for the course last week. Our guide Tom was excellent and covered a lot of miles to ensure we got the best conditions and great routes in and was always ready with a word or two of advice when needed - please pass my thanks on to him,

What a brilliant week we had! I really enjoyed the fact that the course was very hands on and we were given freedom and responsibility to look after ourselves. I really like the fact that the price was all-inclusive, the the course was excellent value for money!
