Phil and Ruth Dunnell, Surrey, England, UK
Another great trip with redspokes. There was a real sense of adventure on a route spanning three countries. The weather, and the food, got increasingly hot - and the hills increasing steep - as we moved from one country to the next. But all challenges, culinary and cycling were achievable.
So we finished tired but happy. All the crews looked after us well. We are definitely going to be heading back to this region again soon.
Tom Carroll, Bishops Stortford, England, UK
I really loved this trip. I was attracted by the idea of relatively challenging cycling, travelling across three countries where I could observe the cultural and geographic differences . There was dramatic mountain scenery in all three countries with the weather getting warmer as we moved into Laos and Thailand.
As we cycled through rural villages in Vietnam and Laos we always had little children waving and shouting hello to us. Really uplifting after 80km of cycling with usually a substantial climb included. The journey along the Mekong river was a really relaxing day on our own river barge. We even managed a river rescue along the way. The days rest in Luang Prabang was really welcome. It has a very large colourful night market. Durring the day I visited the Kuang Si Waterfall (series of three waterfalls), absolutely spectacular, a bear sanctuary (at the waterfall), an elephant feeding station and a few temples.
The guides in all three countries were really amazing. A very special mention to Phong in Vietnam who was always incredibly friendly informative and professional. Also Sang in Laos was really fantastic and even gave a cookery lesson one evening. The food was amazing in all three countries. Where to next ??
Tanya Zimmer, California, United States
The trip was well organized and the sights were phenomenal. I would use redspokes again. Thank you.
Marcella Loehr, Minnesota, United States
I signed up for a 3 country, Asian bike tour because I wanted to see this part of the world! What a wonderful way to see it! We saw every aspect of the areas we traveled through Vietnam, Laos, and Thailand.
Since the guides were divided into one group from each country and were from these areas we learned first hand from their knowledge about their country. They took us to local spots that we would never had seen on any other tour. The biking was challenging but the guides and van drivers made sure we were all safe and were very well organized.
Eli Baron, Texas, United States
The 3 countries was an outstanding and varied experience. Every day different from the previous one and with exceptionally beautiful scenery.
Bradley Walsh, Perth, Australia
Fantastic and unique. Seeing and experiencing the dramatic changes in language, food, culture and environment as you sweep up through the clouds and down over land boarders was amazing. Being on bikes in this part of he world seems natural, even if the lacals treated us as celebrities or family or both!! I got to drink rice wine and beers with a Sharman in Laos and mixed it with the trendy travelers and locals in Vietnam.
Each different country was accompanied by a local guide and support crew, bringing with them their own unique flair and incites. I was looking for a taste of everything in this slice of Asia and was definitely not disappointed.
Paul Goulding, Birkenhead, England, UK
For me it was my third redspokes tour. I find the tours good value for money and go on the road less traveled. The trip gives a taste of it all, from cycling in the high country and magical scenery with cyclist from far afield that soon become friends, to super downhills, and snacks enjoyed in the shade.
The tour has hills, and more hills, but it also has long stretches of flat passing though remote villages where people's lives can be seen and experienced, cooking, working, and even rice wine distillation in the back shed.
The tour is relaxed, but the attention to detail behind the scenes on this tour makes it all work like clockwork, just turn up, cycle, and have a fabulous time - "I would like to say a big thank you to Dermot, who was the glue that held this tour together, a person who irons out many wee bumps so we can just enjoy the cycling.
Quenon Claude, Nivelles, Belgium
Despite the difficulties to smoothly go through borders crossing I have enjoyed being part of this inaugural tour for various reasons:
- the beauty and diversity of the regions visited
- the warm welcome of local populations
- the true as close as possible contact with a village inhabitants in Laos
- the challenge represented by such demanding route
- the very friendly spirit within the cyclos team
Ian Hadden, Surrey, Canada
It was great to be on tour with a terrific group of riders, the trip just got better and better as each day came and went.
It's amazing how the food, local people , and scenery change so much in each country. I highly recommend it.
Binon André, Beloeil, Belgium
Thank you Dermot …for the adventure with the group and yourself. Third trip with redspokes and still appreciate it.
