Katja Stille Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Katja Stille, London, England, UK

Katja Stille from London, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I think the tour was fantastic all around even for someone who normally avoids organised group holidays. I wouldn't have gone with any organisation and redspokes and the personal involvement of Dermot made organised group travel seem appealing. It sets a great example that organised travel is possible without the negatives associated with it. Ken was great! His beaming smile is still one of the major impressions of the trip.. He was also always approachable and willing to explain local customs and details about day-to-day Lao life. Above that he was attentive and helpful in sorting bike problems.

A fantastic support team! Dermot, Eduardo, Barnaby, Alex......what a great job you did. Endless patience, kindness and helpfulness. Outstanding. I thought the people on the tour were great. It was also small enough for us all to gel and be ' a group', that worked well for me. The trip was excellent value for money. There was always plenty to eat (except on the Chicken Feet Soup night!!), I enjoyed the roadside eateries, and the local restaurants. The accommodation was always the best of what was available. The itinerary was good.......the cycling was adventurous, fun and challenging. The scenery was stunning. It was a great way to see Peru, we got to see lots of things you wouldn't see on a usual tour. I think a highlight for me was visiting the local villages up in the mountain on their market day...I found the cycling very tough - the hardest of the whole trip, but it was great to visit these places and a great way to see them.I so enjoyed the trip and that was largely down to you guys who helped get me over those tricky early days. I'm so glad you didn't let me duck out in La Paz!!

The Tibet tour was an experience that will make me smile again and again. We were very lucky on our tour with the weather conditions, but luck wasn't the only thing: the teamwork and flexibility between the tour leader (David) and the Nepalese and Tibetan crew to ensure we all had a fantastic time was unsurpassed.

The food was better than I cook for myself at home and the the camping had a hint of colonial luxury. I cannot recommend redspokes more highly.

During the course of our travels through Laos, as well as experiencing wonderful scenery, good food and amazing cycling, we also managed to touch the Laotian culture. The Laotians have so little but gave so much warmth and encouragement which helped make this trip so special. The Laotian support crew who were driving the van, cooking and acting as local guides as well as Dermot the Tour Leader, did their utmost to make this a holiday to remember. I would recommend this trip to everyone.

This redspokes tour attracted the coolest nicest people (remember summer camp?) and was led by a caring, competent, and cheerful staff who loved sharing their insights. The cycling was a rich combination of ever-changing slopes and surfaces.

The peoples in the Andean settlements were welcoming and very sweet, including the kids who stole our hearts and sometimes -temporarily- our bikes. Cycling into their communities and markets, past their terraced fields of potatoes (4000 kinds!) and quinoa and wheat and corn was heart-warming and enlightening.

I want to say a big thanks to Dermot, Eduardo, Bernaby and Alex who pulled out all the stops to make our tour of Bolivia/Peru a wonderful experience bringing together a fantastic group who made it even more enjoyable with constant good humour and camaradarie, despite some minor setbacks, which as we were the first group to undertake this ride were to be expected.

To top it off were the ad hoc activities, a street party, bull fight and crashing a private party in a Bolivian restaurant were just a few, not to mention the Star Wars bar!!!!! (Cusco) unforgettable. Many thanks again redspokes see you next tour!

Ian Smith from Surry, England, UK  rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

Many people say they'd like to go to India; few do, for fear of what they might see. This trip is a great introduction to a country that never ceases to surprise, delight and occasionally disappoint. In two weeks we experienced so much more than I could possibly have imagined in advance. The wonderful costal scenery, the tea plantations and blue Jacaranda trees, the thrill of an Indian train ride (what an experience), the intenseness of Indian city street life, the relaxing house boats, the delicious food, the smiling people, the ultimate thrill of seeing and hearing wild elephants and, of course, a little bit of cycling too! For me the cycling was incidental; it was what we saw from our saddles that will forever remain in memory. At times the cycling was tough, due mainly to the heat and humidity; coming form the UK's coldest winter for 30 years, it took a while to adjust. The accommodation far exceeded my expectations, even if one hotel did have a lift playing Carpenters songs! You will come home from Kerala with enough stories to bore the neighbours for years, so for that reason alone I recommend this trip.

All in all an absolutely fantastic trip which has opened my eyes to the huge advantages of seeing a country by bike instead of zooming past in a bus from A to B.Both Ken and Dermot were great tour leaders, always ready with a smile and keen to make sure that everyone was getting the most out of the trip, I loved it!Thanks for everything.

This was one of the most spectacular trips I have ever been on! The scenery was varied, awe inspiring, amazing people, very unique culture and environment. The trip was very well organised with a daily routine of: wake up to bowl of hot water, eat yummy cooked breakfast, ride all day with lunch prepared for us : ), eat some more, sleep and do it all again! Just thinking about it brings a huge smile to my face! It was truly a trip of a lifetime! I can very strongly recommend it.

To cycle across the "roof of the world" and experience the mysterious and magical world of Tibet is a dream that I can relive with others for the rest of my life. The highlights for me were to visit base camp where we stood in the face of Everest and then to cycle the world's longest downhill into Nepal.Thanks again to Dermot MacWard of redspokes and my fellow cyclist who were a joy to be with.

Yet another wonderful trip from the folks at redspokes, one that allow's you to see the real essence of the country and it's melting pot of people. The NW of the country is for the most part off the regular tourist trail and better for it, the people are friendly, receptive and not averse to inviting unusually clad, complete strangers into their home for a cup of green tea. Great company with like minded souls who enjoy riding and something a little different in a holiday. Another winner from the team at redspokes.

I want to thank you again for a wonderful wonderful tour in Laos/Thailand. I am totally hooked and recommending redspokes to everyone I meet. I can't think of a better way of doing it.

The group was brilliant and so was the organisation, really stress-free for me. And having Lao guides and translators was fantastic.

On the first night I decided not to make snap judgements about the people in the group and just accept everyone and let them reveal themselves, and it really worked. They were all wonderful.

You have just the right touch - it's organised beautifully and takes away all the worries of doing it on your own, but leaves enough freedom to still make it an adventure. I liked the skillful way you went around and checked on everyone without being overbearing.

I fully expected to be bundled into the back of the truck on the day from Luang Prabang to Kiu Kacham but it was great I was able to complete that challenging day.

Your initial instructions about respect were spot-on. I felt proud of our group and the way we conducted ourselves - I think even our drunken behaviour was within acceptable limits.

Robert Burford from Essex, England, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

For our first cycle trip abroad we decided on Peru and it exceeded all our expectations. The cycling was awesome, the food fantastic and the constantly changing scenery will never be forgotten. Everywhere we went the locals were so welcoming and hospitable.

One of my many highlights was walking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We were so well looked after throughout the trek, with some great home cooking at camp! The diversity of the plants and birds and above all the Inca sites were a mystical experience.

It's "Independence and freedom on 2 wheels" with all the support you need. We will be tagging on for more trips that's for sure.

Karen Smith from Edinburgh, Scotland rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I really loved this trip and had a magic time. It was great to get off the beaten track in the 3rd week - the places we stayed and things we saw were fascinating. The scenery was unbelievable and it was great to see such a variety of terrains and climates in one 3 week trip.

I always felt well looked after and safe, whether cycling or trekking, the guides were fun, friendly and really boosted my confidence and egged me on with the cycling, which was brilliant.

Cycling is such a fantastic way of visiting places like Kerala and Tamil Nadu - allowing you to get closer to the country and its people. This was my third trip with with redspokes so far, so they must be doing something right.

Sandy Hore-Ruthven Cycling on the  tour with redspokes

Sandy Hore-Ruthven from Flax Bourton, UK rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

The trip was amazing. The scenery fantastic. Like being in another world. The distances are fine and once you are over the altitude sickness it was plain sailing. Almost all the roads are well tarmaced and I would suggest a heavy touring bike is a better choice than a mountain bike. I travelled on 35c tyres with no problems at all and much faster and smoother than the mountain bikes.

The scenery was spectacular and the people were a delight. The trip was very well organised. Ian, Raj and the other leaders were fantastic and it seemed as though we had been in India for months rather than months rather than weeks because of how much we saw and did. Our fellow holiday makers were just great people. This was our 3rd redspokes trip which we have thoroughly enjoyed again and we intend to do more. Bring it on Dermot!

Laos/Thailand - Lost In Time: believe everything you read about this tour. Go with high expectations and expect to come back saying every expectation was exceeded. You will be transported to a country where everyone is your friend; where everyone smiles and time has indeed stood still.

Don't expect luxury; expect to muck in a bit, expect it to be uncomfortable at times as it can be hot and sticky; if you can handle this your reward will be an experience that will move you deeply and have you returning home singing the praises of a wonderful country. I promise.

Another fantastic trip. Riding through the first village of the trip with everyone waving and shouting hello was a great feeling which continued on throughout the duration of the tour. This direct personal contact with universally friendly people made my first trip to India a wonderful experience. Can't think of a better way to spend my holidays. Thanks again.

This was a truly fantastic holiday. The cycling was great, the local people so warm and welcoming, scenery amazing and the organisation of the trip was brilliant.

I didn't need to worry about the cycling as the pace was so good, with lots of refreshment stops. It was an experience I will never forget.

Stirling Slingerlan from South Africa rates our  cycling holiday at 5 out of 5

I want to thank you for a great trip, it more than exceeded my expectations. I was a bit concerned that the price of the trip was somewhat cheaper than other companies, but no corners were cut. The food while camping was excellent as was the standard of hotels.Lee was a great guide too and went out of his way to keep everyone happy. 10 out of 10 to him. The local guide, "Sushi" was absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better local guide. Even his English astounded me. Nothing was too much effort for him.The cycling was awesome, some tough days, along with a few easy days. The scenery was something out of this world. The only complaint about the cycling was that we may have had too many sunny days, so one had to apply plenty of sun block.As for another trip, I hadn't even completed this trip and I was thinking about my next cycling holiday. I would definitely be going on another redspokes in the near future.

Belated happy new year to all at redspokes. I'm emailing to thank you and your team for a fantastic holiday Dermot, it was one of (if not the most) interesting and enjoyable experiences of my life to date. The warmth shown to us from the people of Ken's village and the population generally was most humbling. Please convey my thanks and good wishes to Ken and his family, not forgetting Mr Lucky, forkeeping us well fed and watered while we enjoyed ourselves.

I will not fill your inquestionnaire Dermot because for me the trip was better than I expected. OK so the hotels were not up to western standards but I feel that adds to the experience.

Don't change a thing Dermot; it's a bloody marvellous tour!

The trip was a fantastic trip of a lifetime. I have so many fond memories of it and repeatedly look back at the photos to recap all that went on. It was great to meet so many nice people, fellow guests and organisers alike.

I don't know if the experience can be topped but I'm certainly going to give it a go on another location. Thanks again!

What a brilliant holiday.
The company, guiding, bike maintenance, food, accommodation and transport were all excellent. We got to see such a range of different terrains and far more than we would have done by ourselves.
I really recommend this trip.

This trip had a very good combination of cycling and culture. Passing through so many small rural villages and receiving such a warm welcome , was fasinating. Its not easy to find places like these nowadays. It would be good if everyone living in the western countries to do this trip sometime.

Before this trip I was a little woried how I would understand native English (Scottish) speakers but thanks to Dermot and Ken and the whole group it was not a problem.

The places visited, sites seen and area covered over the 3 weeks were fantastic, especially the remoteness of the 3rd week.
A true adventure as this was my first cycle holiday and slightly apprehensive with what to expect. Well at my tender age the cycling was hard but finishing the 100k will be cemented on my mind forever. Also climbing Wanapijchu at the end of the Inca Trail was "breathtaking". I never went hungry as lunch was always following behind my right shoulder.

What a great way to see beautiful Laos and to meet it's friendly and welcoming people. The route is brilliantly conceived. You are taken on a self-propelled roller-coaster of a ride through some of the remotest and least spoilt tropical landscapes imaginable. A completely stress-free holiday.

A cycle adventure tour company who are passionate about the countries they ride through, taking care to positively contribute to the communities encountered along the way. You will come away with a far greater understanding of the people and issues of the region, this is what makes redspokes tours unique.

This was my second redspokes tour and once again it was a wonderful experience. We had a fantastic group of people who contributed to the great time we all had. The tour was well organised with great guide/drivers/helpers. I was thrilled to have experienced the real India and get the opportunity to visit rural villages and interact with the people. I think the trip exceeded my expectations and I have come away with a great insight to Indian life and the chance to see areas that most people never get to see. Well done redspokes and I look forward to the next trip.

The best holiday I've ever had - it's going to take some beating. I've been on organised cycling trips before and this trip blew them all out of the water.

The organisation was faultless, the cycling was awesome, the scenery was stunning, the people were fabulous. The welcome we received in Ban Faen will stay with me for a long time. A truly humbling experience.

Great tour. Probably the most scenic cycling I have ever done. Loved the combination of cycling and the trek (the trek brought a whole new dimension to things).
The way you gradually acclimatized us was really good. This let us achieve a lot more and put us in a very strong position for the trek.

The scenery was incredible. The cycling was enjoyable at not as tough as we'd expected and the group pulled together for the larger wee bumps along the way!

It has all been said in the other testimonials the most vivid memories will always be of the three most important things: the welcoming and friendly people of Laos, great food and interesting and varied terrain for cycling! A wonderful experience, and a privilege to visit such a beautiful country which gives so much to its visitors.

I feel that the organisation of the holiday was extremely good. The transfer arrangements from Lima and to Lima were important and were handled very efficiently. I particularly wanted to visit Machu Picchu and Cusco. Everything else (including the cycling) was an enjoyable extra which perhaps makes me slightly different and untypical of the group as a whole.

I would unreservedly recommend redspokes to anyone interested in a cycling adventure holiday and hope you go from strength to strength.

Lots to see do and take part in. The cycling group was the best. Hope to meet up with a few on future trips.

In short, it was mind blowing - so many things to experience, to see and to savour.I loved Pakistan. From the first day, when we flew in a little plane around the high mountains of the Karakoram range, to the murderous slopes of the Khunjerab, there was always something to wonder at. Mountains, waterfalls, glaciers and icy rivers formed the daily backdrop for our cycling, but most of all, the local people were just so friendly and welcoming. Schoolkids cheered us on, offering high fives as we passed. Our guide, Arman and his team worked well beyond the call of duty to help us on our way.The opportunity to see Raka Poshi up close - that for me was the best moment of the trip. To stand in front of a mountain that rises vertically for almost 6,000 metres in front of you is, quite simply, a never to be forgotten experience. China had beautiful scenery also, especially round Lake Kara Kol, and the descent to this lake was probably the single most enjoyable hour of cycling of the entire trip. Kyrgyzstan was desperately poor economically, but the people were just great.The border crossing was epic and memorable - the cold war revisited. There was enough variety here to keep us all interested, from the yurts of the nomadic horsemen to the home stays in the houses of the locals. The food was also excellent and Bishkek turned out to be an appropriate setting to end the adventure. I would heartily recommend the trip - especially if you like doing something a little different. As the brochure said, "if you are looking for one of the world's great rides, then this is definitely it". I couldn't have put it better myself.

For want of a less clich'd phrase: this was a life-changing experience. I wish I had discovered cycling tours earlier in my life. It's the perfect speed to see a country if walking's too slow for you and buses/trains whisk you past too quickly behind glass. The Laos tour provided a great sense of work and reward for me; the work is the cycling; the reward is seeing such a beautiful place and lovely people more intimately (and not forgetting the odd Beerlao at the end of the day too!). I can't fault the tour leaders, David and Khen, for their continual cheer and encouragement along the way, striking the right balance between supported group travel and personal space . I look forward to my next adventure with redspokes.

Vietnam is truly an unforgettable experience; the tour takes you far off the usual tourist trail where quiet roads wait as well as the colourful friendly mountain tribes who are very welcoming. The Cycling is sometimes challenging but the rewards of the amazing scenery make it more than worth while. The redspokes Vietnam tour is an amazing adventure; I'll be definitely touring with redspokes again.

The tour was wonderful. Ben and Ken were both great; very patient and helpful. I enjoyed all the accommodation and it was good to have a mix of hotels and guest houses. One of the highlights was a hot bucket shower at the stop before Luang Prabang. We had had a very wet day of cycling and it was lovely to be made so welcome at that guest house, a simple place, but definitely one of my favourites.

The food was fantastic too and I was amazed by all the wonderful vegetables and herbs in Laos. As a vegetarian I was catered for at every stop.

Not being a great or experienced cyclist I was a little apprehensive before the trip, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I stayed at the back most of the time chatting with Jenny and Heather (often 3 abreast..... sorry Ben!). We had a fantastic time with lots of laughs.

I was also really impressed with the cycle shop in Chiang Rai. The people working there were very helpful and got my bike sorted for me no problem.

I would give the tour 5/5 and will definitely be looking at another in the futureThanks again, Anna.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Redspokes cycling adventure tours having had an excellent experience riding from Lhasa (Tibet) to Kathmandu (Nepal) along the Friendship Highway, with a detour to Everest Base camp. The flexibility and determination to ensure that we achieved our goals were unparalleled and several circumstances overcome that lesser organisations may have given in to. The itinerary and choice of campsites/hotels gave us every opportunity to acclimatise as well as experience different environments and maximise our chances of completing this 10/10 extreme tour. An adventure experience that I doubt I shall surpass. I would particularly like to commend Gambu Sherpa, our cycle guide who not only rode with us but also managed the whole trip superbly - always a sparkle in his eye, great cycle mechanic and so patient. Brilliant.

The group that I joined was a bit younger than me; in fact at 62 I was older than everyone's father. There were nine of us. I have been on many biking trips but this was luxurious; tents were pitched when you got to camp and taken down for you in the morning. No one expected two inch foam mats that you put your sleeping bags on. The food was excellent, not only healthy but good tasting, there was even a sort of high tea when you got in to camp.The Leaders and support staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There were three support vehicles and no was left out of sight or ran short of water. The scenery was outstanding and the last three days were mostly downhill. A fantastic trip that I have recommended to all my cycling friends.

It is rare and special privilege to cycle through such a unique and truly breathtaking part of the world. It also presents a great, and ultimately rewarding physical challenge, at least to most as there are those blessed with superhuman physiology! The experience is enhanced and the pains are eased by the great support crew and the genuine human touch which has been bought to the super organisation of all aspects of the trip and to the relationships with all the people who are involved in it.
And don't forget, Everest awaits you.

I can't thank you enough - the trip was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Suitably challenging but the great support from Lee, the Nepalese and Tibetan staff and other (rather more experienced) group members made it achievable and a truly remarkable experience. I was concerned that it was considerably cheaper than other trips, some corners may have been cut, but that certainly didn't seem to be the case. Looking forward to next years trip already although I haven't quite decided which one it will be. I will certainly be recommending redspokes to my cycling friends.

I had been looking forward to doing this trip for several years and I had very high expectations. All of them were met. It was magnificent. Due to the apparently unusually strong headwinds and, in parts, extremely rough roads it was a bit tougher than I had anticipated. But nothing could detract from the positive aspects - the camaraderie within the group, the satisfaction felt at the end of each day, the exhilaration of actually "doing it" - cycling across the greatest mountain range on Earth. And towards the end - the thrill of the spectacular descent into Nepal, with the amazing change in environment as we did so. I would not recommend this trip to just anyone; but for those who appreciate a challenge, this is the one for you! Thanks to Giles, Loca and all the crew for making everything run so smoothly.

I loved the whole experience. I met loads of fantastic people and felt that the group gelled together really well; particularly considering the youngest was 19 and oldest was 63. People were really laid back and looked after each other in a quiet sort of way. I was higher maintenance (!) than I would have liked to have been due to illness. It was really reassuring to know that David and the support crew were there and were really supportive and extremely helpful. I would love to do the whole trip again!! Am already looking into my next trip. Thanks for a fantastic experience.

What a wonderful trip, being on a bike, seeing the country and the people that package tourists miss out on. The tour was planned with a really good mix of activities, sights and experiences. From out varied accommodation to the small towns and off-road villages we rode through and the great lake with its floating market, restaurant and school and finally the chaos of the Phnom Penh traffic on a bike. Truly a trip to remember at the ripe old age of 76.

This trip was undoubtedly the best trip I have ever been on. I still find myself comparing other travels and nothing matches the amazing experience of the Laos trip. You step into a new world and interact with your surrounds to a far greater level when touring on your bike. Some of the experiences still seem very surreal. I cherrish a letter written to me by one of the schoolgirl wishing me "lucky when back to your home". I have met some amazing people and will have to organise another trip with some of the group (the two Andy's!!) in pursuit of winning a hill stage!

I've been on two tours with redspokes now - Laos & KKH - Kyrgyzstan. Both were spectacular and also excellent value for the price paid - particularly in comparison with trips I have done with other companies.Organisation and support on both tours has been very good - any hiccups were due entirely to local problems and quickly and adroitly overcome by Dermot (leader on both tours).Red Spokes offer to put you in contact with their clients to obtain an 'unbiased' endorsement of any trip you may be considering. But I fail to understand how any but the most mal-adjusted client could be anything but favourably biased.

This was an adventure for mind and body. Three very different countries and cultures, fascinating and thought provoking. The mountain climbs, especially the Kunjerab pass, tested my physical strength and the achievement gave deep satisfaction. The sheer beauty of the landscapes was awesome and the gentle, welcoming interest of the people we met along the way provided a memorable sense of encounter. Then there was this whole other dimension of the group and the wonderful mix of fun, support, solidarity and space - companionship at its best. Finally there is Dermot. He has an exceptional sense of adventure, a genuine interest in people and endless resourcefulness that dares to push new boundaries brings all this together and provides a unique experience. Go redspokes!

Having toured extensively previously, both with organised groups and independently, my first redspokes trip was a unique and unforgettable experience - a top trip in top company following the road less travelled. It is redspokes' particular combination of adventurous cycling in unexpected destinations and mixing with local people that makes them stand out and makes you feel that you are really on a journey of discovery. And Dermot's unfailing calm and optimism in the face of any logistical difficulties keeps the group's spirits high and the whole show moving on.
