Ride the Kasbah - Mountain Bike Morocco
By: Charlie Clark, Glasgow
What I most enjoyed - Lots of variety. Great downhill. Good sense of cameraderie. Excellent leadership and support drivers. Suggestions for improvement - None, I would do this trip again.
Bhutan Thunder Dragon Ride
By: Paul Beven, England
The trip was initially advertised as "intermediate" - but was modified to "difficult" - which it was. It was advertised as slick or semi-slick - in fact large parts of the ride were over rubble/sand/mud/water/ice. There were multiple 30km+ climbs which are several hours long and somewhat tiring. It should be emphasised that temperatures at a campsite in the Himalayas 3300m above sea level are going to be minus 10.
Mountain Bike the Annapurna Circuit
By: Paul Taylor, Lancashire, UK
A good trip,not as hard as indicated in the brochure in my opinion. We had a laugh,on the trail and in the evenings , a small group but all had previous experience. I think as the new road develops the trip will certainly become shorter. We finished early afternoon on all days maybe a longer route into mustang would make even better trip with the same time period. I rode 98% of the trail,which was a lot more than advertised
Tour de France Cols of Mont Blanc
By: Les Nicholson, Keswick, Cumbria
Brilliant trip. Can't wait for the next one. I most enjoyed the quiet roads, spectacular scenery and the food. The chalet accommodation was better than expected.
Lhasa to Kathmandu Mountain Bike Traverse
By: Martin Doonan, Den Haag, Philippines
Nothing like I expected; everything I hoped for. While I was surprised by Tibet and Nepal, the whole trip was excellent, smoothly organized and just what I was looking for.
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.
Road Cycle Tour of Toubkal
By: Gareth Frankel, Wiltshire, UK
I chose trip for duration, dates and difficulty level. Morocco itself was a big bonus - I never expected such stunning and varied scenery. Our trip leader had a good balance between authority and fun, encouragement and support. Good leadership style, worked hard to make trip good for everyone.
Tour of Gran Canaria Road Bike
By: Helen Kavanagh, Stockport, UK
The whole holiday was fantastic! Ray & Maria were professional, enthusiastic, supportive & fun. The cycling was superb with great bikes, smooth roads, very few vehicles (& well behaved drivers), & stunning views with a great variety of landscapes. It was challenging but achievable & I feel great to have completed it.
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!
Victoria Falls to Cape Town Mountain Bike Epic
By: Sue Johnston, Scotland
Peter (the guide)was an excellent leader, with a good sense of humour and a lot to do. It required organsiation and energy to ride, fix bikes, load and unload the trailer, shop, cook and camp. Excellent bike mecahanic - quick and efficient and lots of helpful advice for the cycling conditions. Good route knowledge. Great knowledge of the country, the wildlife, culture and people. What I enjoyed the most - A sense of travelling from point A to point B. Chobe river, the safari, camping in Moreami seeing animals in the wild. The group. The scenery. Good mix of cycling and other activities.
