A wonderful way to see Skåne. In our group, all \ "medium \" were trained and not at all used to long-distance cyclists, but it went very well!

You need to review signs and signage depending on some "sabotage" and vegetation etc. You also need to review the map material so that the road surface appears correctly. No big things but nonetheless important.

Route and service was perfect! Thanks to Sakura tours!

The signage of the trail needs to be improved, e.g. at intersecting cycle paths. It happens that the sign is on the left side in the direction of travel, which may be on the other side of a busy road. Such a placement entails a risk of missing the sign. Furthermore, it would be easier if the marking always contained the direction of travel, especially important in densely populated areas, e.g. Malmo. Overall, a nice bike ride with good support from Sakura tours.

Very good service from Sakura tours. Most hotels and accommodations were very good in service with the exception of the accommodation Our House in Ystad which lowers the rating. Nothing \ "welcome here or the like \" but his first question was whether we have to park the bikes as close as it was outside his hotel .... Even the Clarion Collection in Trelleborg was a bit uninterested and not so welcoming to guests. But otherwise the hotels were good even though not everyone could serve porridge for breakfast. - However, it was hotel öresund in Landskrona that did not have porridge in its usual breakfast range but happily helped to make one for me and asked afterwards if it tasted good. So little is needed to make you feel extra happy.
