The riders' opinions

Vintage Rides SrI Lanka

“I was born in Sri Lanka but I was taken to parts I didn't know existed. Excellent knowledge of which routes to take to avoid the sometimes hellish traffic. The bikes were great fun : this is despite me being 125 kilos on a 350 - impressed ! They seem to be constantly reviewing their hotels which can only mean a better experience I would recommend this company to my biking friends”

Bern Lazareff
Great experience in the Himalayas, …

“Great experience in the Himalayas, thanks to our very professional guide, Bernard, who shared his extensive knowledge of the local culture, showed tremendous patience and understanding; although some riders were definitely not quite on the level, he managed to include them without hampering the group's progress, bravo! Thanks to his deep sense of humor and many anecdotes, the evenings also were a delight, and we felt welcome when meeting his many friends. Can't wait to do another tour with our special guide.”

Todd
Best trip. Ever.

“Excellent, almost effortless trip. We were looked after well. The route was a wonderful combination of easy riding and modest challenge. The staff was tolerant beyond any reasonable human's capacity. Lodgings both exotic and comfortable. A better trip can not be imagined.”
