Ian James from Cornwall, England rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Having never been on an organised tour before or even on a cycling holiday I found this trip to be very enjoyable. Quite a sociable holiday and I got to see places in Nepal which I would not have got too normally.

Ox the guide with his team were very capable and I felt they could handle any situation thrown at them. Overall a great time and I felt good value for money.

What a wonderful trip! Thanks for supporting us so much for the Thorung La attempt and organizing flights/helicopter, guide, hotels... These were the best mountains I ever did on my bike.

And Ox and the guides were such a fantastic team to explain Nepal and help in every situation (plus teaching us how to eat with hands properly). 11/10 points!

A great tour - varied and value for money.

Ox is a cool guy and looked after the group well - the bike was really good - far better than I expected.

The whole team were good and I would recommend them...

Great opportunity to see Chitwan NP plus the west side of the famed Annupurna circuit trek from the seat of an mtn bike on very challenging terrain and dirt track. Loved the stops for tea and lunch in the villages. Ox was friendly and encouraging.

Our first redspokes tour and we will be back for more. Burma was a revelation as well as an adventure. The organisation was outstanding and our guides were really very good indeed with a wonderful personal touch. The Burmese are quite simply the friendliest people we have ever met. Hurry before it all changes!

It was a privilege and pleasure to tour Colombia's coffee growing district with redspokes. This is a verdant, alluring part of the country, with bright colours and fertile earth, bursting with tropical fruit and veg. The tour stayed well off the tourist hotspots, and it was very gratifying to encounter genuine and very friendly curiosity. I was humbled by the Colombianos friendliness and generosity. My highpoint was our stay at Neira and the overwhelming hospitality from Melva and her lovely family. We cycled through beautiful little towns, each with their characteristic central green squares, overlooked by mostly Spanish-era churches. Being Christmas (v big in Colombia!), there were evening lights, parades, and lots of exciting feliz navidad anticipation, very welcome after a long day's ride.

I still dream of paisa, sanconcho, bunuelos and empanadas (world class at Melva's brother's house), and pine for those mangoes, papaya, and consistently good coffee. We had an excellent tour group, and an outstanding support team. Thank you Dermot, Melva, Stella, Fernando, Camilo, and Diego for the absolutely cracking holiday. Finally, a make-noise, big-up Hackney thank you to Geovanny Aranzazu, our erudite, songful, ever cheerful and helpful guide for Gracias a la vida and Solo le pido a dios.

Another fantastic trip with redspokes. The tour guides Dermot and Rodrigo were very professional and thorough and the support provided by Gustavo with meals, back up van and mechanical support for bikes was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for all three. The opportunity to cycle from Chile to Argentina and back was a real thrill and friends are pretty impressed when you say you cycled from Chile to Argentina over the Andes! The scenery was spectacular and as always with Dermot's tours the opportunity to go off the beaten track gives you an experience and holiday not to be missed. Where next?........ Laos Thanks again

Chile & Argentina was an amazing trip. The daily cycling environments are so diverse it makes each day really exciting and adds the sense of a real adventure. From crossing the Andes at the snowline from the Wild West like scenery when leaving Bariloche the trip has something around every corner to keep your eyes occupied.

Dawn Manning from Calgary, Canada rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The Chile/ Argentina experience was wonderful. The local tour leader, Rodrigo, was exceptionally knowledgeable and informative, as well as being a world-class cyclist, and we had a great mix of 'off the beaten path' locales, as well as some classic cycling routes. The weather was spectacular, as was the scenery. The people that we met were warm and welcoming, and the food and wine were excellent! I wholeheartedly recommend this trip; cycling is the best possible way to get to know this part of the world.

The trip to Chile-Argentina was interesting and challenging. The highlights were climbing the Andes into the snowline (which was a satisfying achievement) and crossing the border between the two countries among the stunning peaks; as well as the challenge of gale-force winds and gravel roads which tested our cycling skills. The hospitality shown to us by the family at our homestay in the Mapucho region in Chile was humbling. Lying in the hot pools after a rewarding climb and eating fresh trout from the stream were both wonderful. We experienced all four seasons of weather in two weeks as well as lakes and volcanoes and rivers of immense beauty. The tour guides Dermot, Rodrigo and Gustavo were brilliant. In total the whole tour: bueno!

We have just had the most amazing time in Myanmar. The organisation was second to none. Bagan was breathtaking and dare we say that the electric bikes were a great way of seeing the pagodas and temples. Myanmar is a very special place and we are so pleased to have seen it at this time. Now looking forward to planning our next redspokes trip.

redspokes puts together an awesome trip. The cycling can be serious, but my friend and I had no shame being the slow man group, bringing up the rear, stopping a lot and chatting up the locals. No one looked down on us for riding the sag bus about 20% of the time. The local crew was wonderful, always super supportive. It's fascinating being on this kind of gritty trip, you're close to the ground and the local population, gathering experiences that the tour bus riders can never access.

"What an incredible journey of spectacular scenery, warm people and delicious cuisine through the green, blue and white of the lakes district of Patagonia! The good amount of riding off road meant that we often had the roads to ourselves to soak in the beauty. Riding 3 segments and taking 3 ferries to cross the Andes from Chile to Argentina was a definite highlight!"

redspokes you did it again! This was my second tour with you and once again, your tour organization from start to finish exceeded any expectations that I could have. I particularly appreciate having local guides on your tours. German, Diego and Marcelo were extraordinary...like family. They guided us in an environment that created a sense of family and community. Their contribution provided much laughter, joy and good fun. Their fantastic leadership was combined with ongoing scenes of snowcapped volcanoes and excellent food and wine, all while getting to ride a mountain bike that is better than mine...who could ask for more?! Thank you again for making another year one that I can reflect on with great happiness...that is due to the thoughtful planning by redspokes. Oh and loved the overnight at Dona Alicia's with her goat-like-dog protecting the front door. Thank you and see you soon, redspokes!

This was my first redspokes trip and it certainly wont be my last. The itinerary was well planned and had the right mix of cycling and other activities. The homestay visit was certainly interesting!
Ken was not only an excellent guide but highly entertaining too! I am sure it can't be easy to get all the logistics of a tour in a country like Laos right but Ken managed it perfectly.

Overall a very interesting holiday and a load of fun !

A fantastic trip in all aspects! As a veteran of ten guided cycling trips so far with several tour companies, I can attest that redspokes certainly has it's act well together. There were rarely any issues or unexpected changes in the trip; and when they did occur on occasion, the guides and staff adjusted accordingly without any problems. The concern and attention for the riders by the staff was always apparent, and the smiles and helpfulness of Mr. Phong were always such a pleasure. Even during the rest days, Mr. Phong was always present to accomodate us with any and every detail. Mr. Trung's bikes were first class as well! The riding was at times very challenging, but the payoff was cycling through incredible scenery and fascinating villages, with a true sense of accomplishment culminating each day. I can heartily recommend this trip to anyone wishing to see rural Vietnam up close on two wheels!

We both had a fantastic time on this trip. Ox & his team are great fun, and are very good at what they do. The rest of the group were a great bunch, and we'll all stay friends for a long time.
A trip full of wonderful memories with fantastic people, and a country so beautifully varied in landscape and cultures..... Not to mention the 'Nepalese Flat' ;)

This was a trip with contrasts. Fly into Hanoi with its c7 million people & 4 million motorbikes, wander around the shops of the old quarter and pluck up courage to try and cross the manic roads! Then go north to the highlands and cycle on fairly quiet roads up big hills (with equally big downhills) through small villages with the women of the various hill-tribes in their colourfull dress. One day we cycled off road (well dirt road) and I got the impression that they hadn't seen many, if any western cyclists before. The scenery was impressive with big peaks and terraced paddy fields climbing up their slopes. A very enjoyable experience.

Northeast Vietnam had it all! The landscape was fantastic with mind blowing views and scenery including killer climbs to make the riding interesting and challenging. Nothing was more spectacular than cycling by the local people as they smiled, waved, and carried on with their daily lives. Let's not forget, meeting other wonderful cyclists from all over the world that were loads of fun that led to much laughter and new friendships. Guides that loved their country and wanted to share it. Another great tour from redspokes and it is clear to me why there are so many repeat clients.

Tour guide Taiel was remarkable and amazing! While he wasn't one for too many words, he always made sure everyone was happy and comfortable with accommodations, cycling, food, etc. He was a great problem solver on many occasions! Very mature and professional and kind and open! We were all amazed to learn that he is only 19 years old. Definitely mature and wise beyond his years! Many thanks and bravo to Taiel! Thanks to Taiel, Gustavo, Rodrigo, and Marcelo for a wonderful journey!

Berta and I commend Dermot, Phong, Mr Trung and the rest of our wonderful support team for yet providing us with another unforgettable adventurre. Vietnam is truly a magical place that overloads one's senses. The awe inspiring scenery is superseded only by the hospitality of the Vietnamese people. We both very much look forward to our next redspokes cycling trip.

This was the toughest tour I have done so far but well worth it. Phong was a great local guide. I learned a lot about the fascinating history - not just about the American war, but the relationship with China and Cambodia too.Witnessing the remote mountain people's simple lives was special. Thanks again Dermot for introducing us to such treasures.

This is a great trip - go now before everyone else gets there! You quickly get away from the towns and into areas where you're a curiosity, greeted by excited children who just want to say hello, not ask for sweets or dollars. It's hilly but worth the climbing for the views. The local team are fantastic, and of course having Dermot there always adds to the experience (but avoid any dice games or snake drinks, and most especially in combination).

I felt it was a real privilege to visit such an unspoilt part of the world. The people in this area of Vietnam live a way of life so different from my own - it puts a whole different perspective on my own life back here in Britain. Overall it was a fantastic experience I'd recommend to anyone.

This was one of the most enjoyable overseas experiences, the tour was just superb Its people were a delight and we would urge others to visit - The formula adopted where local people are used to lead and support the group, works really well. Ken and his team were fantastic and arranged things so that everyone was able to achieve their goals. The opportunity to spend time with local staff and local communities was appreciated. While we don't often use organised tours, this was a beauty and we hope to do another with redspokes. Thanks

This is my 3rd trip with redspokes ( Tibet and Peru previously) and each one has been different but so memorable.
Laos was hotter and more hilly than I expected, but outside the towns, totally unspoilt, with the most beautiful and in places, dramatic scenery. I had heard the people were the friendliest on earth, and I can't disagree. I will have an abiding memory of the children rushing to greet us, laughing and giggling.

Visiting the schools supported by redspokes, the home-stay, the infinity pool overlooking the reservoir at Na Nam, Kayaking on the Nam Song river and visiting COPE charity in Vientiane were all highlights of a varied, well organised, and highly recommended trip.

I have now been on 6 biking trips abroad (2 with redspokes) & the North Thailand/Laos trip is definitely up there with Nepal (RS) & Peru. Laos is a stunningly beautiful country with beautiful, friendly people.

The cycling was really enjoyable & undulating with some challenging climbs in the (hotter than average) heat & incredible scenery to soak up. I will never forget the humbling home-stay experience & hugely enjoyable integration with the villagers. Visiting the schools was a fantastic experience too; hearing the children sing & hearing how the charity money is spent.

The food was delicious & all the guides so happy & helpful. Sign up for this trip!

This excellent trip started in NE Thailand, followed by a boat trip down the Mekong into Laos, where the cycling started in earnest. The next 11 days of cycling ,superbly guided by Dermot and supported by Ken and his wife May and the rest of his team who fed and watered us magnificently was an amazing experience.

Laos is beautiful, great scenery, jungles, interesting towns ,temples, mountains, limestone peaks and best of all the friendliest people I have ever met.

Finally I will never forget the end of each day sitting around with a great bunch of people refueling over a couple of bottles of BeerLao.

We were very lucky with the group that were on this trip. They were great fun and there were plenty of laughs.
The trip, as described, was one of RS's most popular and you can see why. Beautiful country, very friendly people and with various extra curricular activities, like the boat trip and kayaking, it was a very well planned trip. It was great that there were no bus transfers, that is always a bonus.
A wonderful country and this trip made the most of enjoying it's beauty and its people. Most enjoyable holiday

It was a great experience and a marvelous trip through the best scenery ever! The support team was great; all nice guys! Teamleader Ox was very attentive and careful. Our Tibettan guide Migma was a great addition to the team because of his knowledge of culture and history and his drive to share it with us. The cook did his utmost to feed and please us. Hear, hear ! In a way we were lucky that the tour couldn't go as far as Kathmandu, because the Nepal/Chinese border was closed. Because of that, our tour consisted of 25 % unpaved road through a great and desolated countryside. A second advantage was that there were less heavy trucks on the road. We think it is important that your potential clients are aware of the fact that a regular tour is 98 % tarmac with sometimes heavy traffic.

Now that the kids are grown, our dream of getting away on a redspokes tour has finally been realised. We worried that at 54 and 60 we might have left it too late to enjoy 600 kms up and down the Cardamon Hills. Not so, 60 is the new 40 and endurance, stamina and climbing ability comes with age!

We enjoyed our Indian odyssey through Kerala and Tamil Nadu so much that we are already planning our next redspokes trip.

I can hardly imagine a better local team: Omniscient omnipotent Ox - shepherding us (mostly) Nepal neophytes through a diverse voyage of discovery. The ever grinning, ever encouraging Turek - ready for any eventuality. And Lama, always there with great snacks & water, water, water. And, check out his 'stealth' mode: filling our bike bottles without anyone noticing - amazing. 3 of the hardest working guys I have ever seen!

This tour has some of the most spectacular bicycling on the planet interwoven with a broad range of rich cultural experiences. Spent with a great group of open-minded, inquisitive and enthusiastic fellow cyclists, this became a truly life-affirming adventure.

And the Nepalese? The poverty of these people will break your heart but their nobility will lift it up again!

So many thanks redspokes.

Southern China is a fantastic trip. We went through modern cities and under superhighways but spent most of our time in rural backwaters where life has changed little. There is so much to see: paddy fields stretching up the mountains; bamboo forests; wooden villages; and amazing street markets. Everywhere we went the people were welcoming. The food is fantastic, particularly if you like chilli, and quite unlike anything you are likley to get back home. I cannot wait to go back to China!

This was the first organized trip that both my partner and I have made that involved biking in a part of the world we had never been to. Going into the vacation we were excited and also nervous - would we be able to keep up, were we ready, would we enjoy the group and the locations we visited? I am happy to say that we loved every moment of it. The preparation materials and the quick response to our questions and concerns ahead of the trip were tremendously helpful and reassuring. The hotel transfer was perfectly on time and again built our confidence that the trip we were about to embark upon would be well organised and it certainly was. We received able but not intrusive assistance from our 3 fine guides, German, Diego and Marcello. They were able to identify what we required and helped us with what ever our need was. Even when the support bus broke down their plan B plan was executed quickly and well. And of course the scenery and culture we experienced in Chile and Argentina was superb...

A great journey with stunning scenery and sometimes challenging cycling over varied 'undulating' terrain. 

Our leader, Ox, dealt very well with the logistical difficulties thrown up by the late monsoon; flights were rearranged, landslides were bypassed and beer was supplied. I had been to Nepal twice before trekking in the high mountains, but this tour was no less enjoyable for it, staying away from the main tourist areas for days at a time and showing a different side to the country.

Our redspokes trip to Kyrgyzstan exceeded our expectations. The pre-trip communication was efficient and helpful. The trip was well-organized and the itinerary exposed us to different landscapes and aspects of Kyrgyz life.

Our Kyrgyz crew were wonderful and helped us gain an insight into their intriguing and beautiful country. The cycling is challenging due to the roughness of the roads but the rewards far outweigh the difficulties - it is a truly stunning country that is only just starting to be discovered!

We had a wonderful trip in Kyrgyzstan with redspokes. The country is beautiful of course, but the cultural experience was the best part of the trip.

The people are wonderful and happy to see tourists on bikes. The homestays made the experience even better.

"This is one of the few trips that deserve the title a '˜trip of a life time'. Prepare to be challenged mentally and physically and to have preconceived views on culture and society turned on its head. It is one of the few tours I have taken that allows you to interact with local communities in a positive way for both them and you and not just in the usual '˜buy a coca-cola' way."

The KKH trip was everything, and more, that I'd hoped for - although the roads were worse than I'd expected!! The added bonus of traveling with Red Spokes, certainly on this tour, is the opportunity to see first hand some of the work in the local community which is sponsored by Red Spokes' charitable trust. This made the trip so much more than just a cycle tour.

I can't stay away! Once again a trip that I cannot fault, a fantastic group of people, and a truly dramatic route taking in three countries. This trip was both rewarding and spectacular and so much more as well. I just wanted to carry on. The support and organisation of Dermot and the team was as ever unsurpassable, and i think, makes these trips the truly unique experience that they are. Already planning my next adventure, with redspokes of course!

"The trip was an adventure of a life time. Wonderful memories and met some wonderful people. Thank you Red Spokes for all the organisation and preparation that allowed me to get to these places.Thank you also for giving us the opportunity to visit the communities that you have helped and be greeted with the warmth, generosity, pride and love of the people of the GilGet-Balkistan area, a very humbling experience. I hope I will at some point be able to go on another trip, but if not I wish you all the very best for your future adventures.

This is our sixth trip with redspokes. For exciting adventure travel, in out of the way places and few other tourists we haven't found any other company offering such diversity of experience. Yes it can be challenging and difficult at times but that is all part of the journey. As ever the opportunity to meet local people and gain some understanding of their lives was inspiring. To see three very different countries in one trip was amazing. The back up of Dermot and his local teams is always excellent and this time was no exception. The birds are singing and the flowers are dancing when we think about this trip!!

Being "lost in time" was of the most amazing experiences of my life. The cycling was nearly as amazing as the people I shared it with and the team that led us.

It was challenging at times being the wet season but to anyone who is considering this tour, stop considering and just do it! You won't regret it; I am so pleased I took the leap. Ken and the crew will take fantastic care of you and you will have the time of your life! The people of Laos are some of the nicest you will ever meet and your fellow cyclists will become friends for life.

A truly enriching and life-affirming experience.

"Groups can be hit or miss but I think we all hit it off on our 2 day bus journey between Islamabad and Gilgit. In fact this was a great start to the adventure and made me feel that we were truly travelling the Karakorum Highway. Flying this part of it would have felt like cheating. The scenery throughout was incredible and although I have seen many photos of the region the landscape exceeded all my expectations. I particularly remember stopping for some time just south of Passu to take photos of the group with the Passu Cathedrals as a back drop. The view was stunning. After a while we remounted our bikes and set off again, only to be forced to stop again within 100m as we swung round the next bend in the road and the immense Passu Glacier came into view. We were all gobsmacked and whooped with joy and amazement. Another memorable feature of the trip was the wonderful hospitality of the people in Pakistan. Twice we were feted in villages that we visited and even the most hardened of us were moved by the speeches and gestures of welcome. In both Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan our guides were very special people; filled with warmth, energy and a desire to make our trip a success. "

For many years i had wanted to cycle across the Karakorum Highway and this trip exceeded all my expectations! I thought reaching the Khunjarab Pass (which was amazing) would be the highlight of my trip, but my everlasting memories will be of the warmth and friendliness of the people in Chira and the camaraderie and support of the others on the tour especially when cycling/facilities were challenging!

Hi Dermot,

I just wanted to say what a fantastic time I had on the recent Thailand - Laos trip!

From the beginning and booking with Elisabeth and Bryony through to the actual tour itself has been brilliant.

The team in Laos are fantastic! Ken, Mae (and Manniwan), Lid and Ton really made the trip. It was so special travelling with the local team and I wouldn't change a thing about the organization of it. I trusted Ken and Lid 100% when it came to making decisions on roads and when to ride/not to ride. They are true professionals. Lid was also fantastic when it came to the bike maitenance and I know as I had a few dramas! Nothing major, just all the mud etc taking its toll, but every time something did happen I knew Lid was there to fix. Ken and his fabulous sense of humour always kept us laughing! Mae, what a fabulous cook she was and such a delight to have around. Manniwan (their daughter) was also a delight and I thoroughly enjoyed having the chance to spend time with her as well. Ton was so patient and always happy! He did a great job driving the bus and was always there waving "sabaidee" as we got to the bus.

I loved every minute and every kilometre of the journey. Overall, the organization was perfect. The length we rode each day and the towns we stopped in (including the rest day in Luang Prabang) was spot on. Having the local team and their knowledge made the trip!

Thank you to yourself and all of the team involved at redspokes for making this the best trip of my life. I will certainly be doing more redspokes tours in the past and I have (and will continue to) spread the word over here in Melbourne!

Considering that we went in the wet season, were able to see everything we expected and hoped to see. We both felt that it was actually a good time to visit Laos. Everything is really green and lush and it was really good to see people working in the rice fields and to get a good feel for what their lives are really like, much better than just looking at empty scenery.

The home stay was a real highlight and we were both really moved by the sincerity of the villages towards us.

Ken and all of the rest of the support team were absolutely excellent, it definitely wouldn't have been the same without his good humour, he made all the right decisions about when to ride and when not to, his experience on the route is invaluable. We both thought that his obvious love of his wonderful country and its people shone through.

I'd also like to mention Alan too who looked after us in Thailand. He was an excellent bloke, I was staggered by his achievements and modesty. I really hope that all goes well for him with the Northern Thailand tours. I'm sure that all who meet him will be impressed, how couldn't you with a Guinness world record under his belt!

For my son and I this was a wonderful and at times quite magical trip and just so glad that we were able to make it. We are now considering where to go next, we both want more.

Thanks again to you all and we both look forward to many more happy cycling miles.

Another fabulous redspokes tour! The key to their success I think is the involvement of such excellent local people - Ken and his team were fantastic; lots of humour and they offer such an insight into their country that you just wouldn't get with any other tour company.

Laos was an exceptional country and the group was wonderfully diverse and supportive - a great experiece and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to get off the beaken tourist track, give themselves a challenge and experience something a bit different.

I finally found a side of China I liked. Away from the glitzy commercial, polluted cities, back into medieval times. The scenery is stunning with spectacular Dong bridges crossing rivers in every valley, 100m of rice terraces, minority tribes still in traditional dress and the karst cliffs. A fascinating insight into how China used to be, and still is in many areas. Farmer Tang will look after your every need with a ready smile.'

I am back home in Australia now and it's like I have never been away, which is a feeling I am sure everyone suffers from. I would just like to compliment you all on the London to Brighton ride. I found it a most enjoyable day and I am glad the sun came out for all of us. The route taken was fantastic as you would probably never see the beautiful countryside from the inside of a car. It was also nice to get a bunch of like-minded people together from all walks of life, to have a ride as well as a chat. While talking to a group of ladies at the finish about your Laos trip they sold me on the overall experience, I have earmarked some time for next year so I look forward to possibly seeing you all again in the near future.

I can thoroughly recommend the redspokes one-day ride from London to Brighton. Really good fun, stunning route, great backup support and plenty of refreshments. I really enjoyed meeting people - everyone was hugely friendly - and I am now considering a longer ride with redspokes. It's a brilliant way to get up to a bit of distance riding if you are not so used to it. Be prepared for a couple of tough hills. But the rides back down are always worth the effort. And what could be better than a seafront drink at the end of a day. Perfect.

With an occasional high five for good measure. Certainly put a smile on my face on some of the more difficult days. A brilliant way to see the country. Definitely recommended.

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.

Really great trip, every single day had incredible views. Crystal clear lakes and snow capped mountains and met some great people along the way. We couldn't climb the volcano unfortunately for the weather that day (though we had great views most days of volcanoes), but white water rafting was a great alternative. The guides were good fun, and they did a great job at altering the itinerary when needed. One of the best days was having fun locally on some dirt tracks in the hills when we had to spend an extra night in one town. The food and wine, everywhere, was so good. Argentina especially. A steak will never taste the same again!

The redspokes Thai / Laos tour was a rich, diverse experience. More than just 'putting in the kilometers', the tour gave us opportunities to experience Laoation community, culture, language and food. Take the time to share some Lao Lao, join a local Thai Cao new year celebration, and your experience will be kuk li li (very very good)!

The boat trips give you a different view of the country and it's people, and of course the cycling itself is a stunning mix of hills and flats, limestone cliffs and quiet rice paddies. redspokes have an obvious commitment to Laos and it's people, investing in local projects and supporting organisations like COPE. I really applaud that, keep it up. !

If you just want to cycle lots of kms, stay at home. If you want a once in a lifetime experience, get on this tour.

The lost in Laos tour gave us a perfect inroduction to Laos and to cycling tours. The place is facinating and the riding was rewarding. Sharing it with a tour group and an enthusiastic guide team made for great fun, even at the end of the day when the legs were tired and the showers sometimes cold.

I won't easily forget the excitement of the Lao children as we rode by, or the village stay experience

Dermot supported ably by local staff Ken and Daleit literally went the extra mile to ensure we had the trip of a lifetime. I'd chosen redspokes to get away from the Lonely Planet trail and get a bit fitter. I certainly got what I wanted, seeing beautiful Laos from a more native perspective including a homestay in Ban Nalay and shed a stone on the way. Dermot and team's dedication, patience and tireless good cheer made it a super trip.

I have already recommended redspokes to friends and family and am keen to go with Dermot on another cycle adventure.

The staff were great fun joining in on everything, Dermot kept us all laughing, but is also very charitable and helpful to the Laos people.

The local team work exceptionally hard to make sure you have a good time and to accommodate both serious and less serious cyclists. You can cycle at your own pace and stop to take photos or get a drink whenever you wish to, as Dowlete is always cycling patiently at the back sweeping up the stagglers.
