The riders' opinions

Karl
A once in a lifetime experience!

“Made the 14 day Rajasthan rumble and it has been an amazing ride. We had breathtaking moments, crossing small villages and having chai teas with locals. Amazing hotels and sightseeing. If you a bike enthusiast and like exotic travels, you should do this trip. The guide and local staff managed it, not being a touristic thing.”

Mark
Absolute adventure

“This trip is managed from start to finish to provide the participant with a stress free experience. The bikes were amazing and the crew was even better making a trouble free journey. Vintage Rides gives you the opportunity of a life time with a guide who provides guided autonomy. Thank you Vintage Rides for an experience I will never forget for all the right reasons.”

Johnny, Newbury (UK)
Excellent organisation

“Excellent organisation. I found everybody that I dealt with to be very professional and most helpful, both at the planning stage and during the trip. I'd definitely recommend Vintage, and will undoubtedly use them for any future trips I'm able to undertake.”
