Q. Do you run the tours all year round?
A. We generally run tours through Spring, Summer and early Autumn. Winter is by prior arrangement. Each season has its own very special qualities, further enhancing your tour experience.

Q. Do we need to wear helmets?
A. Yes, whilst helmets are not required by law on a trike in the United Kingdom our insurance requires us to supply helmets on all tours. Also, its great to be able to talk through the intercoms.
Q. What happens if its raining?
A. If it looks like the weather will be unsuitable we will re-schedule your tour with you over the telephone with no fuss, and move to a date which is convenient for both parties. In all honesty it doesn’t rain as much as people like to believe. If time is a constraint we will issue you a gift voucher valid for use within the next 6 months. We suggest if you are on holiday it is probably best to book your tour on the first days of your holiday, giving us more freedom to re-schedule if neccesary while you are still in the area. We will always endeavour to do our best to suit you. We always have waterproofs on board (if needed)
