Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Cambodia cycling holidays...
Karen Allworthy, London, United Kingdom
Brilliant trip experiencing the countryside and the lovely people of Cambodia. We were looked after so well by the redspokes team who really went the extra mile to make our bike trip so successful. Phea was a great guide backed up by Mr. Nal and Ramone. Accommodation and food was excellent, the problem was we didn't want the trip to end.
Philippa Mann, North Yorkshire, England, UK
An incredible adventure through the towns and countryside of Cambodia. With Phea and Sekhom as our leaders, we saw the country through their eyes, with their brilliant local knowledge and passion, they showed us so much more than just a country. Every day provided a new and often unexpected introduction! From Kampot Pepper growing to how to milk a Palm tree (!) and meeting local families, school kids, impromptu volley ball games and crazy Karaoke, it was a dazzling assault on all your senses. We laughed every day (and cried at The Killing Fields) and came away feeling like we had made long term friends, with fellow travellers but most of all our guides. I recommend it without reservation. (Oh, and amazing accomodation, pools, views, fab food - but its MUCH more than just that).
Robert Cieri, Vermont, United States
Guides and drivers were excellent. Attended to our every need and couldn’t have been more pleasant. Water stops and snacks were frequent - exactly as needed on hot days. Side trips were fascinating and gave us a real feel for the culture, religion and way of life. Everyone was open and friendly- we always felt safe and at home. We leave Cambodia with a deep sense of affection for the people and how they have endured a tragic history with a positive attitude and great hope for the future. We hope to return soon.
Catherine Hunter, Vermont, United States
Outstanding trip in every way. The staff was exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable. There was a new adventure every day - from varied cycling terrain to eye-opening cultural experiences. As Americans, whose history is so intertwined with Cambodia’s, we found it particularly meaningful and profound. Thank you.
Richard Mann, North Yorkshire, England, UK
This was a great winter holiday and a brilliant way to explore and see the real Cambodia , but with great service, good quality, clean hotels and an enjoyable variety of local food.
Our two guides Phea and Sekhom and our day support van driver really just made the holiday. They were fun, informative and attentive. Our bikes re appeared cleaned and lubed every morning, our overnight bags would be waiting for us in our hotel rooms and every day they arranged an interesting sight seeing visit or informal visits and briefings at nearly every regular rest stop.
They carefully selected a variety of cycling routes for us to experience all aspects of Cambodia, connecting by coach transfers. Their company and exceptional service and support really made the trip so informative and enjoyable.
Regine Gowdy, Ontario, Canada
This was my first organised bike tour and I have to admit that it has exceeded all expectations. Everyday was an adventure, I couldn’t wait to get up in the morning to start the day. Thanks to Phea and Mr Nal I was able to learn so much about this country, it’s culture and traditions. Phea is an outstanding guide, extremely professional, yet warm and welcoming. Mr Nal is always ready to lend a helping hand, no matter what!
This has been an amazing experience for me. I loved every minute of it!
Mark & Jill Moran, Exeter, United Kingdom
Another brilliant trip to beautiful Cambodia with the great company of Phea, Sokhom and Mr. Nal. So well looked after by our guides who were the main reason we booked up to repeat this trip that we first did 2 years ago. The boys love Cambodia and are so keen to share their country with their guests. Nothing is too much for them. It's hot in Cambodia, but if you're OK with that then you can't fail to have a great time on this trip.
Kate Cammidge, Leigh on Sea, Essex
Having never done anything like this before I was quite nervous. Once we met Phea all nerves vanished! We all seemed to gel very quickly and that helped with the cycling. Pea seemed so pleased and proud to take us to all the places we stopped at. Everyone had a story to tell us it was all so much fun and very interesting. I even got the hang of the '˜red top roads' they were something else. The Cambodian people are a brilliant nation, having gone through all that they have and they still smile! I nick-named it the land of a 1000 smiles. The children reminded me of baby peacocks saying '˜hello hello', it was fantastic! I shall never forget Cambodia and a huge thank you to redspokes for such a well organised trip. Everything, Temples, coast, river and all.
Mark Moran, Exeter, England, UK
Had a fabulous time on our second redspokes tour (which is why I graded trip as "the same" as our previous cycle tour because the other was also redspokes and was excellent). Guides were brilliant and couldn't do enough for you; hire bikes better than expected Cannondale 29s which were ideal; accomodation superb with swimming pools in nearly all of the hotels and "guesthouses" indistinguishable from good hotels. For the trip cost, I hadn't expected such quality hotels. Cambodia and it's people in particular are just beautiful. Really sad to have to come home.
Louise Day, Calgary, Canada
Our guide Phea and our driver Mr Tom simply couldn’t have done enough for us. We are a bit older, and turtles on our bikes. Once they realized our level of biking ,they upped the local tours and slowed down the pace.
We had wonderful tours of organic pepper farms, silk weaving, mushroom farms and even a crocodile farm. Everywhere we stopped, we ended up talking to the locals, some of whom had never seen a foreigner.
I feel we had a wonderful opportunity to see the real Cambodia, it’s farms ,villages and people. A total picture that most tourists would never experience. I would highly recommend this tour.
