The riders' opinions

Ken
Excellent tour of Rajasthan

“Excellent tour of Rajasthan. Great bikes and superb accommodation. Anuj was just the best tour guide.”

Matthew
Very professionally run with …

“Very professionally run with experienced guides who, through their local knowledge, can get you to out of the way places the average traveller would not have access to.”

Daphne
Spiti Valley - Absolutely fantastic!

“Absolutely fantastic. The pre-trip organization and communication was stellar. The itinerary and accommodations were well planned and our guide, mechanic, and support driver collectively allowed for a trip where any risk of stress was quickly replaced with nothing but pure delight. I took the Spiti Valley tour ("Gateway to Tibet") which offered otherworldly views and rich cultural exposure. The remote area was particularly enjoyable as even when compared to other Himalayan routes there was very little traffic... truck or otherwise (The last thing I want to do is to go to a remote location to be stuck endlessly maneuvering around slow trucks). I sing the praises of Vintage Rides at every possible opportunity. I've ridden motorcycles all over the world either independently or with a tour group and this trip was tops! I wish I had sooner discovered Vintage Rides and they will certainly be my choice again. Vive la Moto! (If you like to see the video of the trip it is at advmotorbike dot com under "global moto"... it will say in image more than my words can convey!)”
