But don't just take our word for it, here is what our customers have had to say about redspokes and our services...
Martin Hunt, Tounton, England , UK
Just a short note to redspokes to say a large thank you to everyone for providing the framework and support for a most incredible journey travelling from Lhasa to Kathmandu.Having booked with larger companies in the past [and been some what disappointed] I can say that redspokes have got the blend of adventure and personal endeavour balanced perfectly with the ease of organisation and back-up that your team provided, down to a fine art. A most fantastic trip that I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience something quite different. I hope to join you soon on another journey.
Dave Bolton, Monmouth, England , UK
The Manali to Leh trip was fantastic - big skies, big mountains and a real feeling of being "out there". A real challenge and a journey that I'll never forget. It was my fourth redspokes trip and, as ever, Dermot's knowledge of the issues facing the local population and unfailing good humour and enthusiasm made the experience all the more enjoyable.
Rita Gough, Preston, England, UK
I have memories that will last me a life time - Travelling to remote places by bicycle is such a great way of meeting ordinary people and gaining a real understanding of how they live. Despite language barriers this type of travel highlights that humour, kindness and interest in each other are universal features of humanity. It's a good for the soul! This was a fantastic group of travelling companions - everyone looked out for each other & great company of like minded people. I think this must have been a difficult tour to run with all the border crossings but throughout I was confident that we were in safe hands.
Mike Shelton, Cheltenham, England, UK
Really good trip, having spent the previous week cycling on my own in southern Laos/Thailand, it was great to have everything arranged. The big advantage of an organized trip is that you don't have to ride the dull bits and there are interesting extras like the Mekong river trip, the stay in Khens village and the Hmong village visit.
The 15 mile interval between stops is just right. The support crew and all these stops added a lot to the trip.
Tatjana Troll, Berlin, Germany
Fantastic trip: amazing, exhilarating and challenging, hard work though;
I'd happily recommend it to my best friend and to my worst enemy...
Simon Clayton, Norwich, England, UK
Three countries in 3 weeks starting in Pakistan. My expectations were high, and I was not disappointed. Breath taking scenery, unbelievably friendly locals, excellent tour organisation and a great bunch of cyclists to travel with. Dermot was an inspiration to us all. His enthusiasm was contagious, his interest in the local community was inspiring andhis watchful eye always adjusting details to suit our needs. A great tour by a great company.
Lee Trower, Essex, England, UK
I would recomend highly the Red Spokes tour over the South Downs. The guide was excellent as was the organisation of the whole 3 days.The choice of food and accommodation was well thought out and the hospitality top drew. The mix of people and personalities, Dermot and Nick included, made for a very enjoyable weekend that I will be trying again soon.
Clark Schofield, Kent, England, UK
Unforgettable journey though places I would never get the chance to see otherwise. Truly spectacular landscapes and great companionship made this a very special trip.
Cathy Sheehan, Auckland, New Zealand
When I heard the wildest people from the 2005 redspokes Laos tour would be cycling from Karakoram to Kyrgyzstan in 2007, it was impossible to turn down, even though I knew some of the cycling would probably be too tough for me - but that's what the bus is for. Pakistan was a revelation - the hospitality and goodwill were outstanding. The taste of Uighur culture on the edge of China was fascinating, and mysterious mountainous Kyrgyzstan was as spectacular as I imagined. Imagine seeing yaks, camels, ibex and eagles from your bike, but rarely spotting another tourist. An outstanding experience - great crew of guides, drivers and cooks, wonderful company, music and fun - and all with the magic touch of Dermot who pulls the whole thing together and seemingly effortlessly makes sure everyone has a great time.
