a great organization to deal with

We were very excited to ride for two weeks in Vietnam for my 60th birthday. Art of Bicycle Trips seems to have planned a great trip. Then this global health crisis hit and our trip was in limbo. The representative from the company , Shruti was responsive and always working to satisfy my concerns. Initially I wanted them to hold the spot and use the funds for a future trip a few months down the road but as the crisis worsened it became clear that this wasn’t virus going to be so easy to shake. I asked for the balance to be returned. She agreed and without any delay started credit process of about $5400. With other companies, returning funds could have been more of a battle. You never know what or who you are dealing with when you book remotely across oceans. Not in this case.... and that is why I am detailing this transaction. They are more interested in preserving their reputation and doing the right thing. The sigh of a good organization is when things go sideways how do they handle themselves. These guys get an “A” 5 star grade When I rebook , I will use them and will bring along other couples for the trip. I have no doubt they will exceed my expectations. Maybe they will apply part of my non refundable deposit to the next trip ..... who knows. highly recommend.

The Southern Thailand bicycle trip was

The Southern Thailand bicycle trip was an experience that I will never forget. Woody, our guide and Mr. Sit our driver made sure that I journey was insightful and educational. This trip is for those who want to experience the real Thailand, not just from the travel brochures. I highly suggest this bicycle trip, It will definitely change your perspective.

Coastal Vietnam

We had an absolutely fabulous week. Our tour guide Vu couldn't have been more friendly and informative and quickly assessed our cycling capabilities and acted accordingly. We loved each day as it came and went stopping for coffee and local lunch along the way. Hoinan was a particular highlight and 2 nights here was ideal. Huge variety of scenery from paddy fields and subsistence farming to huge swathes of new development right on pristine beaches- go now before they develop too much more !

We loved the trip

We loved the trip! The cycling was fun and beautiful, the guides were very gracious and informative, of course the food was fabulous and our hotels were very nice. Vietnam is a very special place in our hearts as the people are so warm and friendly.

Overall good

Quality of hotels good, Breakfast and lunch fine but dinners not bad in some cases, could improve in others.

Our Guide Happiness and driver mr Ing were excellent.
Disappointing we did not get the shirt that was offered when we booked, not for the shirt but the fact we were asked for sizes which we provided 6 months earlier yet they could not supply.

South India Bike Tour from Kochi to Chennai

We had a great trip, biking from Kochi to Chennai. Our group of 3 made up of one avid young cyclist, and two elderly newbies. The avid biked ahead at twice the speed, so Ajesh, the van driver, followed/led her thru the daily course. Muthu - the guide- and the newbies followed later. Muthu helped shield the crazy Indian traffic from the newbies. We all had a good time. We rode early into sunrises over beautiful countryside, sampled exotic fruits and local cuisine, stayed in historic mansions or local boutique hotels, smelled different Indian spices, visited old majestic temples, and took photo with many warm wishers from villages. There were not many foreign tourists back roads, so we were quite noticeable and welcome. The traffic was just crazy and nerve-racking at times for us newbies coming from the US and riding on the right side of the road (not that it mattered), although Muthu did his best to shield us from the traffic, and re-route the route to less traveled rural roads. Experienced bikers might be more comfortable with traffic though. We would rate the trip higher otherwise. Guide Muthu and driver Ajesh were great: friendly, helpful, professional, timely. We enjoyed their company.

Perfect guides

Perfect guides, great hotels, we loved it. One little recommendation : if it is possible for you to adapt the restaurants/food to the clients it would be great... we would have preferred local food and less tourist food. Apart from that, thank you for a great trip !

Great trip!

Great trip! I enjoyed that the cycling was always in the first half of the day and the culture portion was in the latter part of the day. Our guide Kamal was very knowledgeable and the guides enlisted at each historical site gave us a thorough understanding of all we visited. We really enjoyed cycling through the small villages and interacting with the locals.

Immersive bike ride

The Kochi to Chennai ride is a true immersion in the sights, sounds, and smells of South India. It is suitable for adventurous riders. There’s some tough hills going through the Western Ghats (days 3 & 4), with rest of the ride through Tamil Nadu mostly flat. The guide and driver were friendly and attentive. The lodging and food are good. The historical sites visited, especially the ones in Mahabalipuram, are wonders.

Had a fabulous time cycling through…

Had a fabulous time cycling through Vietnam and Cambodia. Phooc was an exception guide for the Vietnam leg and a shout out to the different community based guides in Cambodia in Phnom Phen and Angor Watt. Yes, we'll be back!

Really accommodating booking team. Well organised. Tour was exactly what we hoped for. Well planned days & rests with good support vehicles allowing flexibility. Meal times showed us the whole range of eating options in Vietnam which was a great experience. There were a couple of communication failures along the way which were easily sorted. The local guides had individual styles and variable local knowledge but all were friendly & keen to help. Accommodation options were sometimes limited and ranged from truly amazing boutique places to somewhat bland chain hotels but all were clean, comfortable & well located. Only thing I would change would be an extra day in Da Lat and maybe one less on the central coast.

The cycle route was excellent.

The cycle route was excellent.

The guide was great. Additional detail in planning to ensure information on and visits to local sites would assist.

Simply Marvelous Experience in Rajasthan with this Group

Four of us with multiple previous bike trips under our belt were very impressed by the professionalism, knowledge and commitment to the client provided by our guide. An Udaipur company with intelligent, highly educated (university degrees) guides and a good itinerary. Third world adventures will throw a few curves but good guiding companies can deal with them. Numerous brief shuttles during the 12 days bypassed the unsuitable biking portions of Rajasthan. Would highly recommend.

Kerala in Style - bike, hike, kayak

Wonderful two week experience of Kerala backwaters and mountains. Biking 40-60km day, couple of days hiking and a day kayaking, with plenty of time to relax and explore. Great for wildlife. Highlights include watching sunrise from Western Ghats, nature walk in Periyar wildlife sanctuary, kayaking through backwaters. Additional visits to spice gardens, tea factory, boat builder and toddy restaurant made it feel more than a holiday and more of an education. Knowledgable guides and good minibus support made the daily routing comfortable. Cycling in Indian traffic does take some getting used to, especially frequent use of horns and buses running to a timetable. Our guide Dibin was very safety conscious and had no problems in traffic.

Well organized trip

Great accommodations and meals! Could have cycled a bit more on some days where route was very flat and easy to put in the kilometres. Guide very knowledgeable! Would use this tour again
