Pokhara to Kathmandu - Nepal Mountain Bike
By: Jon Meeton, Glasgow, UK
I really enjoyed the variety experienced throughout the trip. The biking was excellent - but you also got to see and experience Nepal in a manner which it is difficult to imagine you could achieve in any other way. The pace / route turned out to be excellent. Day in Pokhara was good for assessing the group; other days were all varied and interesting. Our trip leader, Pramod, was difficult to fault - so I won't! The camping days were excellent - good locations, excellent support crew and well cooked (and varied) food.
Lhasa to Kathmandu Mountain Bike Traverse
By: Peter Rowe, London
It will be a very tough cycle trip to beat. Some of the highlights were the amazing descents from high passes with snow covered peaks all around.
The support crew and kitchen crew were excellent.
The office were particularly responsive to emails and helpful in answering questions.
Cycling Tour of Rajasthan - India
By: Gillian Williams, Yorkshire, UK
The trip was outstanding and behond my expectations. One of the best organised holidays I have been on, a little more free time would have been nice but not possible with the itinery. The crew were absolutly fantastic and could not do enough for you. Krishna was a well informed guide and nothing was too much trouble for him he went out of his way to please everyone in the group and give us the cultural experience of a lifetime. I enjoyed everything; the places we visited the local village the countryside.
Possible give people an option on some of the trips and extend trip by a day for a little more chilltime we did not get chance to swim or relax due to the full itinery.
Tour of Corsica - Road Cycling
By: Glenn Rowley , Director of KE Adventure Travel
I cycled this route in 2013, just before the Tour de France landed in Corsica. I usually bike in the Alps and was blown away by the diversity of the riding. The wind caught me out going around the top of cap Corse but the ride down the coast to Porto was some of the best coastal riding I have done. Little detours inland through quiet Corsican villages was a treat and made me appreciate the chilled Corsican way of life.
On the third day, we headed inland and over the cols, specially prepared for the tour, and guess what, all the speed bumps had been removed through the villages and there was plenty of new tarmac. Heading back up the east coast was the first straight road of the trip but we were soon going back in time through the chestnut forests of Castagniccia before arriving back in Bastia.
Enjoyed the food, the beer and wine and the sheer diversity in just a week. Count me in for the first trip in 2014!
Bhutan Thunder Dragon Ride
By: David Rowe, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England
I have travelled with KE now on 5 trips. This was the best. Extremely well organised as ever. Close attention to avoiding health problems. Varied accommodation, adding to the cultural experience, with excellent group and excellent team leader and Bhutanese guide and drivers and camp teams. Our trip leader Chez, was outstanding. She was very professional (and had to put up with some awkward, challenging situations). She kept the group together on all levels. She made us all feel valued for our various contributions to the trip/team effort. Very friendly and approachable at all times.
Turkish Mountain Bike Delight
By: Louise McEvoy, Canada
I can't say enough GREAT things about Mehmet and Kadir. I've been on 6 guided trips like this and they were - by far - the best guides I've ever had. They were personable, fun, friendly and most of all - they treated us as friends. Mehmet was the best organized guide I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and Kadir was a fantastic biking guide, he amazed me every time we rode with him. We were in good hands with both of them! I would highly recommend this trip for anyone interested in a great biking holiday. Turkey has amazing history, architecture, food, people and the biking trails were great too. Overall, a great trip! Most enjoyed Mehmet and Kadir, our guides made the trip for me and my husband. The trip was rated easy/moderate but it should be rated a little higher (maybe moderate) given that some of the trails are very sandy, there are some long days, we had a lot of windy rides and there were some long climbs. There were a few people in the group who struggled with the rides so the more experienced riders would stop and wait for them.
Victoria Falls to Cape Town Mountain Bike Epic
By: Nicole Richter, London, UK
The customer service prior the trip and the speed of reply was very good (via email and phone). The KE service team was fully informed about the trip. The trip information were also excellent and covered everything needed. All in all very good service, which I will use again.
Tallis Wessels excelled at his job, especially at such a risky wilderness and extensive trip. He is by far the best group leader I had on trips so far. He was at all times in full control & in charge of the trip, organisation, safety procedures, knowledge about local wildlife and countries, cycling, bicycles, health. Yet he was very respectful and understanding of us clients. We quickly respected and liked throughout the group. What stood out was his is calm and professional approach which for an extreme trip through wilderness is extremely important as it gives you confidence and reassurance. He was always approachable a nd very tactful. He also has a very good memory, being around 10 clients 24hrs he remembers very well each individual's needs and what needs to be done for each client. He is also very good at timing and organising departures in a way that the daily schedule is met. This incl especially the cycling part. He had a good instinct how well each client was on the bike and how he would manage the timing and group of cycling.
This is was excellent and very memorable holiday. I would welcome more trips of this length and challenge level.
Tour of Gran Canaria Road Bike
By: Clement Rouleau, Etterbeek, Belgium
First class! I can't find anything negative to say about the local agent/trip leader. Ray and Maria looked after the group extremely well and responded to the individual needs of the each of the riders in the group. Ray knows the Island very well and was able to ensure the group had wonderful experience from start to finish. I really felt that the group was in solid hands.
Most enjoyed - Not having to worry about all the logistics required to support such a trip (hotels, restaurants, stops, routes, etc) and knowing that someone in the group (trip leader) knew the area very well.
Bangkok to Phuket Road Cycling Tour
By: Bruce Whiteside, Yarm, UK
One of the best holidays I've ever had, that goes for my partner as well. Everything was perfect and would not hesitate in using KE Adventure again. The holiday overall was excellent. The route was superb, weather was very kind to us, although it was extremely warm. I cannot praise our support team highly enough - Ant, Krit & Rin were excellent. Always there when you needed them. Rin kept us well hydrated with lots of water and energy drinks. A big thanks to them!!! Thailand was better than I expected. Very green, lovely people and very good food.
Jordan Mountain Biking - Dead 2 Red
By: Linda Hamilton, Shropshire, UK
The itinerary and sight-seeing/cycling mix was perfect. The day in Petra was excellent, the tunnel into Shobrack castle was good and the night in Wadi Rum was unmissable.
