Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Burma - Mountains, Beaches & Stupas cycling holidays...
Jonathan Pearce, Marrickville, NSW, Australia
redspokes has given me the opportunity to enjoy challenging cycling in beautiful parts of the world with great companions whilst also supporting worthy local causes. Chapeau to Dermot!
Niamh Collins, Cavan, Ireland
Fantastic trip with great travel companions and a fantastic support crew. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would unreservedly recommend it. Thank you.
Kathryn Mayne, Boulmer, England
I was very impressed with local crew who were keen to make our visit as smooth and interesting as possible. Visiting a variety of areas of Myanmar, the city, the hills, the valleys, and the beach all added to the overall experience of trip.
Kay Thompson, Christchurch, New Zealand
The bike trip was fantastic and well organised. The food varied throughout the trip which was great, the snacks along the way brilliant. The locals were extremely friendly and always wanting to help. I felt very safe as the trip was well supported.
Mike and Berta Glodowski, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Overall our experience rendered out as we expected. The tour provided us with a memorable opportunity to see and come in contact with a beautiful country and its people, certainly before it becomes commercialized and further developed. As we cycled deeper into rural areas the dress, appearance and demeanor of the people became much more interesting. As with new tours or those that push the boundaries into less developed areas there were a few unforeseen challenges presented to our group and the local crew, though these challenges were certainly worth the overall experience and I expect logistics will continue to improve as the tour evolves. Nevertheless the support crew attempted to the very best of there ability to ensure all riders were provided for. Special thanks to the crew for decorating the restaurant and gifts to my wife and I as we celebrated our 30 year wedding anniversary on beautiful Ngapali Beach thus making it the most memorable anniversary yet.
Alf Glover, Chorley, England
A happy returning redspokes customer, I would certainly recommend this trip. Go before the country changes, lovely country and lovely people. Looking forward to next redspokes adventure!
Cheryl Hyslop and Mike Burgener, Ottawa, Canada
We've already recommended this trip to our friends! The tour made it easy for us to see aspects of Burma that we never would have uncovered on our own. It was very well organized and the local support team was amazing ! They could not have been more accommodating and helpful.
Kristina Isberg, California, USA
Burma is an incredible place to cycle, and I'm so glad I did the redspokes inaugural tour! The people are so friendly and curious about visitors. The food was wonderful. There is a rich Buddhist culture and it was incredible to visit Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, the temples of Bagan and all the local stupas. While the poverty was obvious, as well as the lack of quality roads, I still learned a lot and felt I was providing money into the country. As Burma opens to tourism, I was glad to be there to experience this amazing country!
Karl Nicholls, Rugby, England
Some real highs and lows and I'm not just talking about the hills. An incredible trip with some breathtaking experiences on and off the bike. The sunrise over Bagan is worth the journey on its own but add to that the fun of the day on 'local bikes' and the beauty of Nagpali beach and this is a 'must do' adventure. And it wouldn't be the same without the challenges of the long days in the mountains completed with Dermot's special accomodation. Oh how we can look back and laugh!
Great country, great people and great fun.
Louise Ryan, Pearl Beach, Australia
I loved this tour! Kalayar's caring and thoughtful leadership added significant value .... She ensured that her cyclists were not only healthy and happy, but that we were learning and experiencing the culture of here beloved Myanmar.
