Jenny Nicoll, Sussex, England, UK
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed last Christmas/New Year in Laos. Know my comments are a little late but I've not long been back in the UK. Do you remember that the tour was part of my round the world travels and it was the first time I had ever been on a cycle tour as well as travelling on my own. I had an amazing time travelling, visiting over 10 countries in just 6mths. Now I'm back, friends often ask where was my favourite place. Of course that is difficult to answer as I've had a great time nearly everywhere I went experiencing many cultures and doing some amazing things. However, I must say that the cycle tour comes right up at the top of my list for an overall adventure. I loved Laos, the people the country and the actual challenge of the cycling, which I did find tough at times.Ben and Ken were both great and very supportive and I thought the tour was very well organized. I was so glad that I decided to include this as part of my travels and would love to do another one sometime.
Piero Tassinari, Meldola, Italy
Well, it has been the second time I've bike toured with redspokes and again I must say I've been really happy with this Laos esperience. The scenery has been stunning, the contact with the locals wonderful, the cycling pretty challenging; I dare saying ... don't try this tour if you aren't well trained and very determined to face some very tough days!
The home stay in the village has been an unforgettable chance of witnessing the daily life of the rural people .... absolutely anthropologically interesting! We visited the local school supported by redspokes ... having been a primary school teacher all my life this too has been a very moving moment! The cycling group has been a fun enjoyable crew; I would say choosing redspokes has proved a guarantee of a well assorted bunch of cyclists. Thank you redspokes!
Lien De Brouckere, Washington, USA
My first adventure cycling tour -- better than I could have imagined! Stunning scenery in Pakistan, which we enjoyed on bumpy off-roads through hospitable villages and on the pristine tarmac of the KKH. Next some cold days in China, and then warm greetings, gorgeous horses and more mountains in Kyrgyzstan. I was nervous in the beginning as a newbie to mountain biking, but thanks to the supportive and fun group, I came away a much better rider at the end!
Michael Burgener, Ottawa, Canada
This was an excellent tour with many great memories. I particularly liked the rides to/from Chirah and Shimshal. Ideally we would have ridden up to Shimshal instead of just down (no loss for me since I had an injured hand that day and would not have been able to ride up). I realize it would be a fairly challenging climb up. Giles is a very competent guide and a saint. He managed difficult situations with great skill, applied first aid, as was needed from time to time (I was a beneficiary) and handled changes in itinerary well, keeping us up to date. I'd be happy to go on any tour led by Giles.
Marie Sadler, Dunstable, England, UK
This is my fourth tour with redspokes. The whole trip from start to finish was well organised with a terriffic support team, nothing was too much trouble. The cycling was fantastic in a dramatic and spectacular part of the world. Awe inspiring scenery. redspokes never fail to give you a true sense of the country its culture and people. It is also a privilege to travel with a wonderful group of cyclists. The hardest thing to do now is decide which trip to do next!
David Grist, Leeds, England
Brilliant trip! The accommodation was a lot better than expected for the areas we visited. Would have rated the redspokes guide Giles along with the Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan guides higher if there was a category above excellent, thanks for a great trip. Its difficult to select the highlights, so many but would probably pick the Hunza valley for the mountain scenery and the lake crossing, pity the tunnel will be finished next year and rob the pleasure for future travellers, thanks again!
Pat and Keith Green, Dudley, England
We thoroughly enjoyed the KKH Tour. Our guide Giles was excellent and did very well sorting out unforeseen problems, Our local guides in Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan were also very pleasant and helpful, as were the local people.
The scenery in all three countries was spectacular and the cycling was very varied. Rough rocky tracks on narrow cliff roads leading to local villages, to straight, wide tarmac roads with little or no traffic. We cycled with a great group of people and stayed in some comfortable places, especially the homes stays in Kyrgyzstan.
Ros Lawson, Edinburgh, Scotland
Another outstanding trip with redspokes and another trip that begins with lovely accommodation that deteriorates the more rural you get! This is however, part of a personal challenge & one that really can't be avoided if you want to visit parts of Burma (Myanmar) that are as yet un-Westernised.
It is an incredibly beautiful country with lovely welcoming people & an abundance of temples! Highlights of the trip were Bagan & Ngapali Beach. I would have happily had an extra day at the beach & extended the trip slightly, (I'm sure others would agree).
Richard Kitson, Brighouse, West Yorks, England
Great to see Burma/Myanmar before it might get spoilt by tourism. Good cycling despite the poor surfaces in some places, but it's obvious that that is being addressed month by month. Accommodation in general was very good, considering, but where there was no tourism the places were basic, but that didn't come as a surprise.
It was great that we ate at genuine local venues each day for the main meals and the ride stops and this only enhances the trip. Burma was such a friendly and safe place and the bike support staff were first class.
Kate Cheesman, London, England
Excellent trip. Dermot and local staff wonderful. Bikes excellent and superbly maintained by those overnight "elves" who oiled, cleaned and polished them and sometimes even left flowers on them! - Wonderful "invisible" beings!!
Beautiful countryside & amazing people. Go now before it turns into Thailand
