David Rice Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

David Rice from Carlisle, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 4 out of 5

Cycling to Everest Basecamp is an amazing adventure and climbing up to almost 17000ft on a bicycle is an exhilarating experience. The views are all the more rewarding given the hard work it has taken to get them! The culture in Tibet is very colourful and there are many monasteries to look round. One of the highlights for me was going to the city town in Lhasa and seeing the many Pilgrims walk round the Monastery praying. However the best part of the holiday was obviously reaching Rongbuk and seeing Everest. The guides looked after us well and cooked a wide variety of very tasty food.

Another amazing redspokes trip, this time to Albania with our wonderful guide Arjan who was very knowledgeable about the country and history of Albania.

Scenery was beautiful including mountains/lakes and Albanian coast. It really gave you a insign into the country and the people along with delicious meditterean food and challenging cycling.

I can highly recommend the redspokes Nepal bike tour.It offered a good overview of Nepal with the Kathmandu Valley region,the Chitwan and of course the Annapurna region.Tour guide "Ox" is the hardest working person I have ever met. He is a great guide and seems to know every person we met in the small villages.I enjoyed our visits as we climbed from the back of the pack-he is also the first person to call me "Canada" for two weeks.

An outstanding trip into the high mountains. The cycling was challenging enough, but not too tough for average cyclists. The support crew and guide were absolutely first-rate - helpful, professional and good-natured throughout. Just pack plenty of warm kit for the nights whilst you're camping!

Bob Harrison from Weymouth, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was an extraordinarily tough trip but well organised and utterly rewarding. Furthermore, as a committed solo cyclist I would recommend anyone to consider doing this route with Red Spokes in preference to pushing a heavily laden tour bike through kilometer after kilometer of deep sand and rock.

If you enjoy off-road adventure cycling, I don't know how this trip could be bettered. The terrain was varied, challenging and often exhilarating. The range of scenery and weather in such a short period was amazing - from fertile, populated valleys of 35C+ to bleak Tibet-like uplands, below 0, and as undeveloped in terms of infrastructure as anywhere I have ever been. Obviously, this had its challenges, but for me the feeling of being in some truly untravelled wilderness areas, with lovely welcoming people made it well worth the hardships.

Paul Emms Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Paul Emms, Harrogate

Paul Emms from Harrogate rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This was a sensational trip in a world class stunning location. The organisation was faultless, the itinerary was great, the route beautiful and the whole trip was so much fun. I loved the fact that the location had virtually no western influence and we saw very few other “tourists”. The local people everywhere were lovely. All the accommodation was spot on with big clean comfortable rooms and the local food was continually delightful. The cycling was spectacular, exhilarating and tough with some huge demanding climbs and speedy exciting descents so thank you for choosing such a great route and providing such a great bike which made it all possible.

Finally everything above was made magical by our wonderful guide and friend Phong. He was fun, caring, knowledgable, fixed any problems (of which there were few) and always ordered brilliant food wherever we ate, and lots of it! And when there were no places to eat on the route during to day he always prepared a great picnic supplemented by coffee & snack breaks. He made sure I tried lots of new fruit & vegetables and the yummy rice cake! Mr Ming our driver also did a great job transporting all our gear and helping Phong wherever possible. I very much hope that I will have another opportunity to go cycling with Phong and experience his lovely company & sense of humour! Thank you everyone at  redspokes & I look forward to joining you again!

We have just returned from our wonderful Sri Lanka Classic cycle tour. As we are middle aged and not particularly fit we decided to take the e-bikes. Although these did help us, they did not stop us from getting a lot fitter by the end of the tour. Our guide Chamara and driver Janika were extremely experienced and benevolent. We learnt so much about this beautiful country from the spices and teas that are grown there, to the gems that are mined. We visited Buddhist temples and world heritage sites. The lunches were varied delicious and memorable as were the snacks, black tea and fresh coconut stops.

It was an opportunity to see parts of Sri Lanka that very few others can or do. The people are incredibly friendly and the children run down the road after you for a ‘high five’. I don’t think that there was one moment where I didn’t have a smile on my face. Thank you “redspokes” for a wonderful tour.

Kathryn Phillips from New Zealand rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

What an incredible experience. The scenery was so dramatic, so stunning and changed so dramatically across our journey. The altitude made the journey challenging, but also resulted in a wonderful camaraderie emerging between all the members of the group as we battled to the top of each pass.The trip was superbly run and the support offered by our guides was brilliant. The final challenge of tackling Khardung La on the final day was the perfect end to an incredible journey. If you're up for a challenge, willing to give things a go and have the experience of a lifetime - do this trip.

Kasun and Lasantha (our driver) were excellent and went out of their way to ensure everything was okay for us, and nothing ever seemed too much trouble.

The outstanding highlights for me were the three lunches we had in local people's homes.

Our guide, Mr Sampath made this holiday. His knowledge was vast, the country side, plantations, routes, animals and birds was a joy to talk with him. he gauged our wishes well, managed to find great cycleways, tracks/roads that were fascinating, noting the animals, birds and reptiles plus the visits to the spice garden, gem museum, botanical gardens and several ancient cities we enjoyed a lot.

The driver, Diane, he was very good at looking after the bikes, local provisions and such a careful driver, this made all the difference to a well supported and relaxing holiday and travel in the support vehicle.

Thanks Dermot for helping me discover and appreciate new countries with cyclists who share the distinctive design of the redspokes experience.

Lots of cycling, adventurous tours that attract adventurous people. I've had two redspokes tours and they were both fabulous.

Our tour was a dream come true. The picturesque landscapes and well-planned route made for an unforgettable adventure. What stood out even more was Anna's incredible support.

Cycling through Argentina was an absolute thrill, and the experience was elevated to new heights thanks Taiel and Marcello, our guides, were the heart and soul of the adventure. Their passion for cycling and in-depth knowledge of Argentina's culture and geography added a rich layer to our journey.

From charming local villages to picturesque vineyards, every pedal stroke felt like a discovery. Cycling in Argentina is not just a physical adventure; it's a cultural and sensory delight. Highly recommend it to anyone seeking an active and immersive travel experience!

What a wonderful trip. A combination of camaraderie from others on the tour and welcome from the local peoples in an astounding geographical area less travelled made the whole experience truly memorable. 

Organisation was good but not intrusive allowing for flexibility and time to stop and meet the local people along the way. My photos really don't do it justice. Looking forward to another trip with redspokes in another part of the world... just can't decide where.

An excellent and memorable trip. As many others have commented Phong our guide is just great. Friendly, encouraging, knowledgeable and rightly proud of his country.

We all really enjoyed the whole trip, great views, lovely people, enough of a challenge without being impossible and a feeling of really being in Vietnam and not viewing it from within a tourist bubble. We loved it.

Judith Evans from York, England rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

This trip was such an adventure for us. Vietnam is an amazing and interesting place. The people have had to deal with so much recent history of battles and wars yet they are not resentful -they are friendly, lively, fun,positive, forward thinking and proud of their country. The scenery and countryside was varied and spectacular- made so much more interesting by Phong our guide who seemed to be able to answer all our many questions be it flora,fauna,history geography economics etc.-his command of English even allowed him to joke and tease- quite remarkable when it is not your first language.

The cycling lived up to expectations- and for me was quite a challenge but I'm proud to say I completed it without having to resort to the support van -even the 26km climb. The downhills and stunning views were well worth the hard toil up hill. I would certainly recommend this holiday to anyone who cycles-a fabulous introduction to Vietnam.

Louise Ryan Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Louise Ryan from  Umina Beach, NSW, Australia rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I loved everything about this trip! We were lucky that our small group size allowed for highly personalized attention from our guides. In fact, our tour leader, Phong, felt more like a knowledgeable friend and travelling companion than a paid guide. His outstanding command of English allowed for lots of fun banter as well as meaningful discussions, especially about Vietnamese history and culture.

I learned so much. I found the cycling challenging in a positive and often exhilarating way. I'll be coming back again to do the North East Vietnam trip with Phong for sure!

Jonathan Pearce Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Jonathan Pearce from Marrickville, NSW, Australia rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

North Vietnam is a beautiful part of the world and excellent for mountain biking! The hills were challenging- the views were worth it and the downhills exhilarating. Culturally, we were lucky enough to have our trip coincide with the 60th commemoration of Dien Bien Phu, meeting interesting groups of veterans en route in local hotels. Their interest and generosity was touching- plenty of shared rice wine!

Phong and his crew were first rate: helpful, patient and always available to help us experience interactions with the local culture and people. hotels and food were great.

Paula Dyche Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Paula Dyche, London, England, UK

Paula Dyche from London, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

One of the great aspects of the trip was that you are on the bike all the time which allowed you to experience the contrasting landscapes - rice fields, mountains, villages and towns. You get a real taste of daily life - you happen upon events - stop to admire someone's pig, watch rice pickers, sample some local food. 

Some of the days I found tough but Dermot and his crew were there to keep me moving and there were carefully planned 'strategic' stops where you can see the table with refreshments up the hill/mountain that you need to get to. Going on a redspokes holiday (this was my second one) is like going away with friends on an adventure!

This was my first guided cycling adventure and I was in this tour with my daughter. We had great time cycling in beautiful Vietnamese country side. The support team did a good job and we could really just focus on enjoying the ride and had no worry about the arrangements. We got also enough information about the local culture and had a chance to work at the rice field also. As we enjoyed this tour a lot we look forward to next adventures.

What a great part of Vietnam to cycle, empty roads, stunning scenery and great craig with a nice bunch of people. For me the essence of travelling is getting on roads less travelled and meeting different cultures and experiencing their warmth and hospitality, well done for helping me achive this.

What a great place for a cycling holiday. A mesmerizing hidden corner of Vietnam, totally unspoilt, notraffic, no tourists and undoubtedly the most spectacular scenery in the whole country. Cycling among the different hill tribe people, seeing close up, how little their lives had changed over the generations, was truly a fascinating experience. For me that's what cycling adventure holidays are all about. Well done redspokes.

This trip was a brilliant way to see Vietnam in an active way. The group was friendly and good company and I felt privileged to witness the rural communities in the north that very few tourists will see. The cycling was mountainous but enjoyable and the scenery spectacular. Thoroughly recommended.

Family Mulligan-Bennett from Bellingen, Australia rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Our private tour of the North of Vietnam with our 14 year old daughter was so much more than we were expecting. Every day was interesting to the degree that it was hard to know what to look at: mountain people in traditional dress, a couple ploughing with a buffalo on a scarily steep slope, the school children trying out their English and easily keeping up with us on their vintage bikes, and beautiful scenery of mountains and rice fields. Our daughter managed extremely well with the help of our tour team and we only used the van on some of the steepest climbs. A totally brilliant trip.

I had a fantastic experience and the trip had some really good cycling - the rest days were a real bonus, with a lovely hotel and the beach hotel was perfect (would have happily stayed there longer). The country and the local people were a real treat and in my opinion made the holiday.

This is an excellent trip - The guide was probably one of the best I have ever had on any tour, nothing was too small or too much to be achieved. The quality of food and accommodation is very good, I was particularly impressed with the range of vegetarian food available. I loved staying with the local families and in the yurts. All the people involved were highly welcoming and hugely enhanced the enjoyment of the trip.

The riding is challenging, but not overly so - the scenery is spectacular and the route has been well-considered to offer sufficient challenges without being tortuous! The bikes available for rent are perfectly adequate for the job and the support is highly professional, competent and reassuring.

Myanmar is certainly a magical place and I feel lucky to have been able to cycle around the country in its modern day infancy as it gradually opens up to tourism. It's rich in history and culture (Bagan was simply breathtaking), and the people we met along the way are some of the friendliest and most welcoming in the world. There was a real spectrum of cycling terrain, from comfortable flats via stunning valleys to some testing ascents over rough surfaces. It really hit home what years of military rule can do to infrastructure and the economy, but you forget about any pain when the kids in the villages run out from their homes to greet you as you pass by. The support crew treated us all like their own family, working tirelessly to make sure we had a fab Christmas and New Years (including making sure the food I got throughout the trip was vegetarian!), not to forget Julian who was a first rate tour leader.

This is a great trip! It is extremely well run! The bike provided was excellent. So was the bike service. The team worked hard every day to clean and service everyone's bike before the next day's ride. I also loved that drinking water was provided daily. This was not done a previous trip we took in Croatia. The fruits and snacks provided at the rest stops were a welcome relief as well. The guides and support team work tirelessly to ensure you have a great experience.

As someone who did not prepare for this trip, I found the riding to be challenging; especially on Day 1 & Day 2. Then, I found that I got stronger throughout the trip. The experiences from the perch of the bicycle were incredible. I loved how so many people came to greet us as we rode by. We were complete Martians to most of the people we passed! I especially loved the visit to the school and was thrilled to have been a part of the celebration. I feel so fortunate to have been a part of such a special group! Thank you for making it all possible.

An amazing trip; quite tough with a lot of climbing but the rewards are many.

The views, the birds and butterflies and the exotic fruits and plants. The small towns along the route are bustling with life and activity and a delicious coffee is never far away. The opportunity to explore two fascinating cities at the beginning and end of the trip in Medellin and Bogota is a real bonus. (We tried running in Bogota and forgot that it is at 2,640m! - Mui Durita.)

This was my first organized cycling tour and I was not sure what to expect - either of redspokes or myself! I was so pleased to find this tour extremely well organized.

Mr. Sampath did an excellent job of evaluating our group's cycling abilities and speeds and adjusting our pace accordingly. He is an excellent bike tour leader, who effortlessly led us through side streets, canal-side paths and through busy towns! The tour would have not been such a success without Mr. Waruna! His patience in answering client questions was endless, and his passion for and knowledge of the history, culture and wildlife of Sri Lanka were infectious. I learned so much more about the country than I ever expected I would on a cycling tour. The rest of the crew were always helpful, professional, and friendly. Kasoon is an excellent driver in often very difficult, tight conditions! Nuwan always had the truck where it was needed, and Kumar was ready to help in an instant. We loved being pampered with fresh fruit, local sweets and water at every stop! What a great team!

My mountain bike was excellent! I was not sure what to expect, but brought my own cage pedals, which the team installed for me. I also brought a gel seat cover, which I think helped save my butt! Loved the disc brakes on my bike! They gave me confidence on the downhills!

This was my first cycling holiday. There were parts that were harder than I had anticipated. However I made it and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would do it again. It was a great way to see the country and the way of life and interact with the locals. The organisation, accommodation, food, guides and bikes were of a high standard. I am glad to have done the trip with the beach extension as this gave another insight into life in the country and the ability to keep cycling or not. I would recommend it to anyone.

I truly enjoyed the Patagonia Chile-Argentina redspokes trip. The mountain and lake scenery was spectacular. The arrangements spot on and the accommodations very comfortable. I liked cycling on a combination of gravel and paved roads with a few days of truly memorable rides. Staff was outstanding --Tolke, Diego and Bosco were terrific in everyway. They were competent well organized and helped make even the challenging days fun.

I loved experiencing Burma at handlebar level. It's a great way to see the country and to meet the locals. The riding is varied with flat sections, challenging climbs and some challenging road surfaces. I was very happy with the bike I hired from redspokes and Jules and Phoe Aung ensured that it fitted me and was expertly maintained over the trip. The food is delicious and there is plenty to eat. I have celiac disease and had no problems eating gluten free.I loved my time at Ngapali Beach “swimming, body surfing and with my cabin right on the beach front.

Our local staff was awesome“ ensuring that we had everything we needed and more. They had a great sense of humour and we shared many laughs. In summary, redspokes organized a great tour of Myanmar at a great price and I can't wait to tour with redspokes again.

Our Sri Lankan guide's intimate knowledge of the roads and byways granted access to areas that no coach or van could ever visit and we were rewarded with sights and sensations that were sometimes the same, but never repeated. For every photo there were a thousand more I wished I had taken.

The variety of flora and fauna is quite remarkable. Sampath's advice allowed us to eat and drink produce from the side of the road, creating interactions with local people, who were always pleased to see us.

Fresh coconut water was a particular favourite. The cycling is comfortable and the few climbs rewarded with corresponding descents.

Our guide Phea and driver Nal were both extremely helpful and informative. As well as scheduled stops Phea also showed us many interesting things varying from wedding ceremonies to traditional racing boats and riding in an oxcart! In addition they were also willing to share many personal tales and anecdotes from their lives in Cambodia and Mr Nal's life under the Khmer Rouge. There was never any shortage of refreshments and our well-being was always a priority. We sampled many local fruits, produce and culinary delights. All in all, a trip to remember!

I cannot think of anything negative to say about cycling around south Thailand. It never felt like we were in a rush or being pushed from A-B. There were varying levels of fitness, but never any feeling of competition or one up manship. The food was good, the group atmosphere was fantastic. I will definitely use redspokes again.

I had a very good trip to Laos with Redspokes. It was a fantastic way to explore a country which I did not know much about before. If I should mention one thing that impressed me it will be the people - they are very welcoming no matter where we were. The scenery was also very beautiful and I enjoyed the bike cycling. All in all I am very happy for this tour!

The Thailand cycle tour was exactly as it was promoted - a perfect balance of activity and relaxation. The cycling was enjoyable rather than extreme, covering. 670km along quiet back roads and coastal routes.

We also had plenty of oppurtunites to swim in the sea, with the highlight of the trip for me when we all went for a dip during a coffee stop on an unspolit small bay on the way to Ban Krut! Quite frankly I loved every minute of the tour and I think it will be a hard one to beat!

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.

This was an amazing experience and a really worthwhile tour. We rode on every kind of surface possible from smooth roads to almost impassable rutted stony tracks. Ox was a great leader with very good local knowledge and everywhere we went people knew and admired him. The scenery was often just so spectacular and quite unforgettable.

The Nepalese people seem blessed with the happiness gene, and were friendly everywhere, no matter how poor (and there is a lot of poverty). Any mechanical issues were sorted out on the road by the support crew - no problem. Thanks redspokes!

This was an unforgettable trip. The cycling was challenging over different surfaces, inclines and traffic conditions. Each day brought a new experience and was unique in its own way. Ox is a legend. Supported by Milan and Marmalay, he did so much to make sure we got to know the real Nepal, as best we could in two weeks, and that we got the most from our visit.

I had a great time on the Nepal tour, it was an amazing experience and I hope to cherish the memories for some time.

Nepal is hard to put in to words, the people are friendly and the scenery of is outstanding, including many of the ordinary houses and buildings. One of the enduring images is the smiling happy children that love to wave and say 'Namaste', 'Hello', or 'Bye Bye' as you cycle past, many of them wanting to run to keep up with you or try to beat you!

redspokes is a well organised outfit, all the logistics were handled really well and all our group of 8 people really enjoyed our time spent on and off the bike. I would definitely recommend a trip with redspokes to Nepal. It's highly likely I will be choosing another trip next year. - Robert Armitage (NEP 9)

Each day was challenging and interesting. Suresh, our leader, managed to cater for all our cycling abilities by using the other guides wisely. Even the rest days were packed full of fun. Ambir the driver could sing and dance Nepali style very well and with the good voices of the 4 guides we received great entertainment around the camp fire.

Deepak the cook and his helpers gave us more variety than we had expected. They never failed to amaze us with the type of meals and the quantities they could turn out from inside a tent. Loca kept the logistics running smoothly so all we had to do was cycle eat and sleep. All in all it was a great tour and we will find it difficult to top it.

Another great trip with redspokes with fantastic scenary & a great group of people with good support from Ox & his crew.

This is challenging tour with at least half of trip more associated with technical mountain biking than road biking as tarmac to rough rocky roads is about 50/50 with tough climbs.

Nepal is a fabulous place and Ox and his team go out of their way to show you everything the country has to offer. They want you to experience all of their culture, if you want something they haven't thought of they will try and get it for you but don't be too harsh if it is not the Nepalese way it is what will bring us back again and again. Enjoy the Nepalese Flat!

This was an absolutely amazing trip! It was the perfect blend of cycling, amazing scenery and fantastic sites. Jah, the guide, was personable and knowledgable and we were do well looked after throughout. We felt like we got a real insight into some minority groups in China, history and the impact of modern times. The food was particularly good both daytime and evening. Memories of Tiger Leaping Gorge, the Yangtze and cycling through snow capped mountains won't fade quickly. Thanks for another great tour!

The trip was amazing. Problems when visiting countries is that you do not get to see anything that is not a tourist attraction. On this trip, while we visited some major tourist attractions, we also were able to roll through some very small towns and meet some of the locals, mostly children who were more than happy to say hello and race you by foot. Ox and the other support guides go beyond to help.

Over the trip several of us had bike issues and they would hardly let us help, jumping straight into the problem and fixing it for us, even if it was our personal bikes that were breaking down. The ride itself was at times quite difficult and I was glad that I spend most of my riding on a mountain bike, dealing with uneven and difficult terrain. I would suggest that you are a confident with rock and dust downhill riding. I cannot recommend this trip enough, the people, the food, the sights and the culture was absolutely amazing.

I had high expectations of biking in Hunza and the trip exceeded my expectations on nearly every level. Our local guide, Aman, made every effort to provide us with experiences of the local culture and to make our trip a special experience. Julian, our cycling guide, was always available providing mechanical assistance, encouragement or just good conversation. The scenery was incredible with every turn in the road providing a new photographic opportunity or presenting a sense of centuries of history.

The climbs up into the side valleys were challenging and the descents stimulating. All of the redspokes team and my riding companions contributed to making the trip very enjoyable and memorable. The ride was not just a biking tour but an adventure.

We completed the redspokes Nepal Trip in Nov 2019 and can highly recommend it. There were 6 of us in the group with two guides and a driver. November was a perfect time to go, dry and warm but cold right at the highest point. The road surface was a mixture of tarmac, gravel and dried mud. Rough but not too technical. We hired bikes, through redspokes, which was the right thing to do. They were new standard Trek mountain bikes and did the job well. We normally take our own bikes abroad but with no spare parts available in Nepal and the punishment the bikes take, renting is the best option. The trip is a challenge but most fit people who can cycle 50 miles in a day would be able to do it. If you're not a cyclist, try something easier before attempting this particular trip. Some roads in the towns are busy, but we were mainly on quiet, unsurfaced roads. The views were incredible. Accommodation and food were better than we expected, several good hotels and simple guest houses in the hills. Food was good in most places and we kept well for the fortnight. You do have to be strict about hygiene (take hand sanitiser/wipes). Bring a water bottle with a cap for the mouthpiece as it gets dirty while cycling. Pollution and smog is bad in the towns, there is a fine dust everywhere. Not to put you off but it may not be suitable for asthmatics or people with other lung conditions.

The tour was led by OX, an experienced and capable guide. He sorted out all the logistics and ensured smooth running of everything. He and his team went the extra mile for us. Overall we had a great adventure, good company, excellent back up and would recommend you go.

Al, our guide, so knowledgable and Tao, our driver, mechanic, snack provider, cold drinks of every sort at our request.

We couldnt give one highlight of the trip - just loved it all. Al & Tao gave us a lovely experience - a trip to remember.

This was simply a wonderful tour. There were two singles with us who seemed to have a very good time, but for the rest of us, all couples in our fifties and sixties, it was just a sublime opportunity to share the experience of this amazing country with remarkably compatible companions.

Every day was a delight. Our guides, Phea and Sokom are extraordinary people who do redspokes proud. They made a great team; nothing was too much for them, no problem one that they would not solve. Their infectious laughter and jokes, good and bad, kept us constantly entertained. We cannot praise them enough. Chakriya and Mr Na similarly daily put a cheerful effort to keep us fed, watered and on the road. It was simply a wonderful holiday, certainly the best short cycle tour we have taken.

I had a fantastic time,saw some wonderful places, met lots of interesting and interested people and came back much the richer for the experience. This felt much more like it offered opportunities to do holiday stuff(houseboat cruise,visits to temples,tea plantation)and wasn't as challenging in terms of the rigour of the cycling (some fantastic descents so we did climb quite high) compared with previous trip, so important to read the itinerary and make sure it is what you want/expect. Excellent organisation from the redspokes team.

More than a guide, simple a man who never stopped from making sure we had a great time putting the customer first time and time again truly a diamond of a asset to Dermot and redspokes.

This was my third redspokes trip. The first of its kind to NE Vietnam was the attraction for me. This must be one of the very few areas of the world where tourists and tourism have not yet had an impact, changing the people and the experience of how life is.

Cycling through remote villages along tracks and roads devoid of traffic with wonderful vista around very bend was truly bliss. However, hurry up if you want to experience this as it won't be long before it's gone for ever! As on the previous trips redspokes organisation and care were excellent. I have no hesitation as before in recommending this trip and redspokes to whom I extend by grateful thanks for another great tour.

Most of the towns seem to be hanging onto the side of a mountain with practically vertical streets! Our guides Geovanny, Alex, Adrian and John were great and the group were really friendly and lots of fun and we will miss everyone.

A trip which certainly deserved its 10 out of 10 rating, but worth all the effort and training. Some days were challenging but the rewards were awsome ...magnificent, breath taking scenery goes without saying, and it was different, so very different each and every day. Watching the Tibetans make mud bricks, collect the harvest, thresh the grain, plough the fields with their wonderful yaks, move everything from horses to food to children in their magnificent tiny tractors was a privilege.

Their smiles lit up their faces and their waves of encouragement as we passed helped the legs keep going.The magnificence of the Himalayas will stay in my mind forever ...but the faces of the people and their deep affinity with their surrounding will lift my spirit and make me burst into a very very big smile
