Данияр (Daniyar) and the support crew were great -- not only did I love Kyrgyzstan, I loved the fact that they all did too. They dealt with the inevitable issues that arose smoothly, were always in good spirits (even on the days when we hit wind, rain, hail...and yeah, we had a couple of those), made great food, and were excellent guides into Kyrgyz language and culture. If I ever toyed with the idea of getting into the support van, I knew that Данияр would support that -- but was really hoping we could just keep cycling. Another memorable Redspokes trip.

As experienced cycle tourists, but having never been on an organised group tour , would we do another group tour? - would we use redspokes? -would we recommend Albania? The short answer to all is yes , we would.

We came away with very positive feelings about it all. We are already considering another tour with redspokes next year . We may have been fortunate in that the group was populated with like minded, interesting and capable people and the Guide and driver were first class. The accommodation was better than expected with plenty of idiosyncrasies- this is Albania afterall. They added to the fun rather than caused real inconvenience. The food was a revelation - plentiful , fresh and tasty with a local bias as hoped.  Arjan and Tuani ( sp?) were great ambassadors for their country.

Albania itself was different but not as alien as we may have anticipated and we never felt threatened or particularly uncomfortable and had  a thoroughly enjoyable experience that we are keen to repeat.

How best to sum up my experience in just a few words? Flawless organisation and support throughout; fabulous Albanian hospitality, food and accommodation; a glimpse of a country yet to be "infested" by our takeaway culture - not one McDonalds or Starbucks in sight; fabulous snow-capped mountains and fields full of poppies; and a chance to learn all about the culture and history of this land and its people.
 
I was a month short of 70 when I did the trip and worried about a slightly dodgy knee. No need to have been too concerned, not least because of the friendly and supportive group with whom I rode. If I can make it so can you. Go soon before it gets too busy.

The trip was exhilarating, hard, joyful, fun, exhausting, intriguing, interesting and challenging, a good old fashioned adventure. There was not a day that went by that I was not amazed or surprised by something. Ox our guide has done this trip many times and knows the toll the altitude takes on riders, he checked us out everyday to make sure we were OK, if you were not 100% on any given day, he would recommended spending a day or half day to recuperate in the support van. Its a long ride and wearing yourself out too early means spending the whole trip in the van! His Nepal team were superb, they made sure we had an abundance of food and drinks to keep the wheels turning. Special mention, Jenzen from the Tibetan team, he was so friendly and informative about his culture and country, thoroughly enjoyed his company and knowledge.

Our 4th redspokes tour and one of the best! The landscapes were positively gorgeous - dramatic mountains, brilliant lakes and rivers, colourful wildflowers, lush farmlands and jaw dropping coastlines. The first few days through the Albanian Alps were challenging, but a highlight of our trip and also the rest day at Ohrid was perfectly timed. The food was fresh, tasty, and plentiful at every meal. Our guide Arjan was fun, lively and had deep knowledge of the area and the road conditions. Albania's recent communist history and older Ottoman/Roman influences were fascinating.

We highly recommend this trip!

Arjan was wonderful! Near the top of a 10k climb, at about 12% near the top, he was singing to us as we rode! He was a wellspring of local knowledge and history. My only question about the food is, how did I actually GAIN weight? Seriously, it was fresh, fabulous, and plentiful!

I can't say enough about the support. Tony (sp?) was a tremendous help. Many of us brought our own bikes, which he always kept cleaned, maintained, and safe throughout the trip. My bike arrived home in better shape than when I left! Thank You!

Ox is a strong and caring team leader who leads an extremely supportive group of helpers that made the trip easier and more enjoyable. The food was enjoyable and plentiful. Patrick was always available to fix mechanical issues with the bikes while also dealing with camp setup and tear down. Our local Tibet guide was incredibly knowledgeable and humorous. This is an extremely physical and mentally challenging tour, you will learn and test your limits within a group of very supportive cyclists and crew. Ox was a marvel at keeping track of our mental and physical well being and usually knew when someone was having an bad day before we did. This was my second visit to Nepal and the warmth and friendliness of the locals combined with the stunning scenery make it a must visit destination for world travels.

This was an unusual trip as there were only 3 participants and we were travelling in Sri Lanka at a time of national crisis following the Easter Sunday bombings. In several of the places that we stayed in our group were the only guests and the staff in all the hotels we went to were grateful that we were visiting the country at a time when most tourists had left Sri Lanka and many countries (including the UK) had advised against all non-essential travel. 

I cannot speak highly enough about the cycle guide, Sampath and the driver Gayan. Both were endlessly helpful, patient and conscientious in their work with our group. They were always ready on time and kept the bikes in tip-top working order and they both went out of their way to respond to all kinds of requests from the group. They kept us constantly equipped with cold water even when the outside temperature reached 40 degrees and well supplied with bananas.
