Katja Stille Cycling on the Turkey - Kurdistan tour with redspokes

Katja Stille, Berlin, Germany
Turkey - Kurdistan

Katja Stille from Berlin, Germany rates our Turkey - Kurdistan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was the best of the redspokes tours I have been on. Even weeks afterwards the trip the amazing feeling of cycling through this stunning mountain scenery and across wide open planes is undiminished.
The small towns and villages we passed through provided an real insight into day-to-day life as well as the complex history of the area. Above all, the people we met made this tour so special. In the context of the past and current political situation these meeting were similarly humbling and inspiring and the hospitality we experienced was truly wonderful. Thank you Dermot, for inviting me on this trip and give my thanks to Cilem and the drivers for looking after us so well.

Paul Brown Cycling on the Turkey - Kurdistan tour with redspokes

Paul Brown, Cumbernauld, Scotland
Turkey - Kurdistan

Paul Brown from Cumbernauld, Scotland rates our Turkey - Kurdistan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The timing of this trip added to a desire to gain a little understanding of the complexities of the region.
The guide was simply outstanding. She is the embodiment of the Turkish Kurds mindset. She also demonstrates the tolerance of the Kurds and their desire to move forward to a progressive inclusive society within Turkey.
We saw this on many occasions in small villages where locals who had never seen tourists before were keen to welcome us and provide hospitality to us. They provided safety to refugees who told us their heartbreaking personal stories. And they lived in harmony with neighbours of different religions all working together to ensure the peace process is successful.
The landscape was dramatic particularly in the second week. The small communities we visited were curious and welcoming (we were guests at three different weddings).
Thanks Dermot for giving me a small insight into a different culture.

Andy Green Cycling on the Turkey - Kurdistan tour with redspokes

Andy Green, Isle of Wight
Turkey - Kurdistan

Andy Green from Isle of Wight rates our Turkey - Kurdistan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

There are many variables which contribute to an enjoyable cycle tour - the scenery, the people, the local history, the hospitality, the accommodation, the weather, the food, the guides, the roads - to name but a few.
This tour improved day on day until it peaked during the second week; a week where all the variables came together and gave me some of my most memorable and enjoyable days on a bicycle.
The Kurdish people are truly generous hosts and I will always cherish my memories of this part of the world.

Rita Gough from Preston, England rates our Turkey - Kurdistan cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This tour excelled all my expectations, which I should acknowledge were high due to the fabulous redspokes tours I have been on before.
Dermot, Cilem and the drivers were brilliant. Special thanks to Cilem who knew the area inside out, was loads of fun and great company.
The area was magnificent and the people wonderful. The Kurds must surely be the most welcoming and friendliest people. It was humbling to share chi with them and hear about their experiences. There are too many experiences that stand out so it is hard to pick one out from:
Good cycling, lovely people, wonderful landscape and an area few tourists have visited and what a welcome we had!
Thank you

A unique opportunity to explore and experience a part of the world with many layers of ancient history and a strong regional culture which still survives despite the challenges of recent decades.
