Reviews

This tour was a good mix of different types terrain, hills and flats. Some days were harder than others. The scenery and areas we rode through were spectacular. And yes have to say the camp mattress was the most comfortable I've slept on. I was very pleased with this tour. The staff and guide had the highest level of professionalism. there were times when they went beyond their required duties to make our trip richer and more enjoyable. One night our driver entertained us with singing Nepali songs, and another night Soraj took us to have our foreheads stamped with tika since it was part of the Dashain festival the n Nepal while we were there.

This trip was a wonderful way to experience the culture and people of this beautiful country. The scenery was breathtaking and our guide Chandra was very knowledgeable of the geography and history of the country. Chandra's care and attention to our needs was first rate. We were very well looked after. The food was amazing, and our cook Songram made sure my dietary needs were catered for at all main meals. We ate local cuisine and enjoyed the fresh produce bought along the route. Our driver was very professional and drove carefully on some fairly scary roads. We have a life time of incredible memories from out trip and I look forward to the time when I can book another cycle tour in Asia.

Thanks for an amazing experience. I loved all aspects of this tour and will definitely recommend your company to my cycling friends.
