The riders' opinions

Great staff/tour personnel

“Firstly, the airport experience on arrival was a little disjointed but of no great consequence. From thereon in wonderful people to deal with and our tour leader/support staff were excellent. The bikes were in good mechanical condition and we were fortunate that our group had a good skill set as there were some challenging roads. Notwithstanding though this trip would be suitable for most capable riders. No alcohol in the high altitudes is recommended. A very professional outfit all round.”

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.”

Brian Marris

“This company provides excellent value for many, superb organisation, brilliant bikes and fabulous staff. We could not fault our experience.”
