Chamonix to Zermatt Mountain Biking
By: Glenn Rowley, Director KE,
I have now Skied, walked and biked from Chamonix to Zermatt, what a fantastic journey whatever way you do this trip. The climbs were not the hardest and we used cable cars where we could. The views, villages and single track descents were the highlights for me, as well as the wine, cheese and just being on my bike in the Alps!
Cycling Tour of Rajasthan - India
By: Stephania Scerri, Luxembourg
It was a great holiday indeed and I enjoyed every minute of it. Everything was very well organised and there was a good mixture of cycling and sightseeing.
Our guide Promod couldn't have been a better leader. He took care of keeping us happy throughout the whole holiday and he always knew just when to stop for some Chai tea when the going got tough. He was not only a bike leader but also a cultural and nature guide.
I enjoyed cycling through the villages and meeting the friendly locals who always surrounded us and our bikes on every stop we had. The food was also delicious.
The cycling in itself was challenging but very enjoyable. It went better than I had expected. This was my first organised cycling holiday and I had some apprehension before but everything went smoothly and I was not only satisfied but very pleased with the running of the holiday. I look forward to opt for more cycling holidays in the near future.
Tour of Gran Canaria Road Bike
By: Alasdair McGregor, Widnes, UK
Excellent holiday, highly recommended. Already considering doing it again! Ray helped make the holiday, good leader on and off bike.
Most enjoyed - The cycling! Island was far more beautiful than expected. All accommodation was good and varied.
Bangkok to Phuket Road Cycling Tour
By: Aluisio Rosa Faria, Uberlandia, Brazil
KE standards were very good, as always. Please keep it! The hotel accomodation was much more than expected. Very good! The food was superb, especially the super prawns and squids, availabe in great amounts and, in reference to this, I should not forget to say thanks to the vegetarians friends... That is another trip that could be sold also as a gourmet trip of real delicious food. And I should no forget to mention the marvellous fruits we had in the rest stops during the day trip, that made a real difference in that overhot climate. By the way, the little ice cold towels the crew offered us every stop were an unforgetable refreshing experience, a real pleasure. The performance of the support crew was excellent, especially their good humour and the smile always in their faces. Special thanks to the great idea of changing the wheels when we got a flat tire, so you're not miles away from your friends, having to catch up. The trek leader was very good. You have just to be alert with him when the super prawns arrived..., what a speed!!! I think my comments above showed what I particularly enjoyed in this trip: the accomodation, the food, the care of the support crew and specially, of course, the good biking days.
In 93 I was in Bhutan, at the Chomolari base camp, with Exodus and we happen to share the hut with a KE group lead by Glenn. Karakoram Experience was the name on their bags. I was hooked by that name and all the adventures it suggests. I understand why it had to be changed, but never forget the Karakoram Experience spirit!
Tour of Corsica - Road Cycling
By: Ruth Marsden , Sheffield
Slick from start to finish enjoyed all the cols, especially the two mountain days. May was a great time to visit Corsica, not too busy and the weather perfect for road biking. Thios trip will be hard to beat in terms of variety and stunning scenery. Where next?
Bhutan Thunder Dragon Ride
By: Sara Pryce, Worcestershire, UK
What a fantastic country!Bhutan is indeed 'shangri la' - soaring mountain views, deep valleys, fertile lands and crystal clear air. The people are gentle and very obliging. We had such a wonderful cycling trip which was both challenging and rewarding and extremely well organised. It was a real adventure especially at the end when we had to cross the border into India at 3am!
Our Bhutanese guide, back up team, mess team who cooked us s ome delicious meals, and the boys who put the tents up were always cheerful and professional and only too pleased to help. Although it was a challenging trip, with some quite difficult road surfaces on occasion,it was all very do able. I wouldn't have missed it for the world and look forward to my next KE Adventure cycle holiday.
Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu Mountain Bike Tour
By: Maggie Doron, Cumbria, UK
I thought the trip provided a really good balance between the biking, culture, sight seeing and free time. The organisation and attention to detail was fantastic.
The route of the Conquistadores - Bike Guatemala
By: Suzanne Duke, Sheffield, UK
The trip completely exceeded my expectations in all of the above, which I would put down to the hard work and dedication of the local support crew and guides.
Our trip leader and the other guides were all of the above - excellent. In addition, it felt like they were part of the holiday itself - their enthusiasm was infectious, they made every effort to showcase the very best of Guatemala to us - both the biking and the places. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The service provided was excellent. The trip leader and support crew were amazing.
The incredible memories of the trip will stay with me for some time to come and I would happily recommend the trip to experienced and technically capable mountain bikers!
Most enjoyed, everything! The biking, the company of the group, the accomodation, the variety of the places we saw and stayed at. I loved the biking routes and their variety - from big climbs and descents to single track and techy descents. The guides were amazing and the service and company they provided ultimately made the trip.
Jordan End 2 End - Road Bike Tour
By: David Freeman, Melbourne, AUS
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and did not expect much in accommodation and food. I was not disappointed.. Meals outside of the hotels were generally higher standard.
Anas, Samir and Sohaib could not be faulted. A great crew.As a small group we all bonded quickly and I enjoyed the company of fellow riders and the crew. The itinerary is terrific. To see Jordan from end to end by bike was a great experience.
Turkish Mountain Bike Delight
By: Maggie Wardle, Tadley, Hampshire
Mehmet was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgable about the history and culture of the area and broke the day down into a great mix of cycling and site seeing. He went out of his way to make sure all the group's needs were catered for. We both had a great holiday even though we felt that the grading was rather low. We are regular road cyclists and have done some off road cycling but we found it quite tough and even the more experienced group members thought it should have been graded higher. Everything was fantastic. Fascinating area to visit and the mix of cycling and cultural visits was excellent. The opportunity to do an early morning balloon flight was well worth the extra money- a magical experience. The food was so plentiful, fresh and tasty that I'm glad we were cycling to burn off the calories! The company and camaraderie made the whole experience more enjoyable.
