This was my 4th trip with redspokes and again I have been blown away. The trip design was excellent (as usual)- the back roads, small villages, cultural experiences, and amazing vistas of rice fields and agrarian life was so fantastic and so interesting. I would never be able to organise this trip outside of redspokes because of the critical use of local knowledge and researched planning and cycle routes away for any usual tourist routes. Outside of the two cities we saw no other foreign travellers.

Forrest our guide was excellent. He could not do enough for us, he looked after us in every way, always wanting to do more. I loved his kindness, humour, and integrity. The food was excellent, Forrest got to know what we all liked and each meal was delicious. Mr Bi our driver was also great. Our coffee stops were great and Mr Bi is an exception cycling mechanic, he is also very funny - the bikes we used were put together by Mr Bi and were excellent. My fellow cyclists also made this trip very special, thank you, I loved being with you. So thank you, thank you, thank you redspokes, Forrest and Mr Bi, hmm where shall I go next!

It was a fantastic tour with plenty of scenic back road cycling through rice fields, tea plant plantations making a juggle between keeping those peddles turning and takings photos an issue. Evenings spent both in small villages seeping in culture and jaw dropping sky high towns embellished by an enthusiastic guide to help understand it all, relax into it and help with some fun language skills to make you more welcomed by the locals. Definitely a tour that will revitalise those senses and make you want to get out there more to open up your mind. We did hit some wet weather, but even so the only down side for me was coming home!

Everything from the bike hire to the food was excellent. A really good time to visit this fast changing country where I was able to cycle through the mountainside tea and rice plantations as well as modern towns. Every step of the way was enjoyable and I felt that I really have visited off the beaten track.

I fell in love with China on this trip. The scenery was stunning; lush and green with rice terraces spreading as far as you could see. Everywhere people were friendly; we were invited to eat with people and spent a wonderful evening watching a DVD of Beijing opera in a Dong village drum tower with all the old people of the village. The cycling was great; particularly along the river from Diman, through villages it felt few non-Chinese people had visited and up the road we were told no-one had ridden on a bike before.

I really didn't know what to expect on a cycle trip in China, as I've never been on anything like this before. Well, it's safe to say, I'm hooked. Every day was a new adventure, you never have 2 days the same. We rode on everything from brand new paved roads to red clay trails, and everything in between. I loved the fact that we knew there were alternate routes on better (busier) roads or highways, but we always seemed to be taking the longer, more scenic, and quieter path. Our guide, was always there to answer any questions , but never once did he rush anyone like there was a time limit, we just got there when we got there. Our support driver was never too far away with water, treats, and of course the coffee stops. Riding thru dozens and dozens of villages, I learned real quick that you should have your camera ready at all times, as southern China really is a photographers dream. If you want to experience the real hidden China, I highly recommend the redspokes trip.

I had one of the best holidays ever thanks to a great route and a great bunch of fellow cyclists. This was a brilliant trip through a country that's changing before our eyes. It takes you to areas of China that are hardly ever visited by tourists and are still largely unchanged. They won't stay like this for long, do it before its too late.

I would definitely book another tour with redspokes, everything was very well organized, the way it was run was responsible, professional and at the same time flexible to all of us. The route was unbelievable, breathtaking sceneries we had and Aidan and Bobby (Our tour guides) guided us extremely well making us feel each day alive, active and with a huge ambition and doubt what to expect each day of the tour. My personal opinion in a cycling tour or any other tour depend in 60% or even more in the chemistry of the people you are sharing it getting along with each other, the rest would be how the tour is run and how well is organized, however, in this case, we had a great group, very friendly making us feel be part of it as a nice family for two weeks, moreover the organization was simply excellent. It was pretty challenging due to several hard uphills but at the same time riding with everyone made it more interesting, fun, and of course challenging.

Another really enjoyable redspokes trip. It was great to get to such out-of-the-way places, well off the tourist routes and get a unique experience of China. The contrast between the cities, "tourist towns" and the rural areas was very marked and a highlight of the trip.

The redspokes trip to China was an amazing experience. Two weeks felt like two months. The guides were fantastic and we visited rural areas of China which are rarely visited by Chinese tourists let alone foreigners. The scenery was truly spectacular and I felt that we were able to have an genuine insight into the minority people of China. The Chinese people were so welcoming and hospitable, I would highly recommend this trip.

If you want to know how life really looks in the remote and adventurous countryside of foreign exotic destinations, you definitely should join a MTB tour with redspokes. They take full care of the organisation, with experienced guides, while you concentrate on your cycling adventure and meeting local people and culture. My MTB tour in China was a great experience, for my body and soul. Thanks Dermot!

See and feel (!) the back roads of Southern China on this tour. Always interesting and some amazing scenery. The food was surprisingly good, sometimes an uncomfortably close relationship with where your food comes from! But that`s China.

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!

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.'
