INCLUSIONS & MORE

we go the extra mile

Beautiful Hotels

On this Premiere Inn tour, experience the best of luxury and small boutique hotels at each destination. They are chosen carefully so that you are well rested, get a drift of the local character or an enthralling view from your verandah! Under circumstances of non-availability of hotel, we will put in equivalent or a better hotel. Any extras at hotel are at your expense.

Quality Bikes

When you have a road and the thrill of a journey ahead of you, it’s imperative to have a good bike to enjoy it. Most of our tours in Thailand run on some of the best hybrid bikes in the cycling tour industry. Upright position, good traction and optimal balance between performance and comfort are some of the characteristics.

Outstanding Food

Local food plays an integral part in experiencing the culture of region and we make sure that you get plenty of this. The inclusion of daily meals is highlighted in detailed itinerary. Drinking water and soft drinks such as juice, tea/coffee is included while riding. Plenty of fresh fruits, cookies and water is provided while cycling.

Charming Guides

Our most visible and perhaps most important role is played by a Trip Leader, the folks who make a trip exciting, comfortable, knowledgeable and who are able to steer you towards the real experience! In most of the trips, we have two guides riding with you. One is leading the group of riders and other is closing at the back.

Comfortable Support Van

A Van follows the group of riders throughout the trip and carries all belongings. If at any point riding seems a little hard, the van takes you for as long or as little as you wish it to. It also provides you refreshments along the way and sometimes a chilled beer.

Guaranteed to Depart Tours

We run most of our tours with minimum 2 people traveling and sometimes even with 1 person, without any extra fee. Rest assured, your trip is always guaranteed to depart. If for some reasons you don’t wish to join a tour then you can always transfer to another trip or we’ll give you a credit which you can settle against any future trip.

Entrance Fees & Transportation

Entrance fees to historic sites, museums, temples & other exclusive events and transportation from rendezvous to final drop-off is always included in your tour price. Our tour designers give as much focus on non-cycling activity as on cycling.

Deep Local Knowledge & Presence

Presence of operations in Cambodia, local associations at Thailand and ad-hoc field network allows us to leverage local know-how and deliver on what is promised to you without any culture and communications barrier.

Singles Friendly

It is applicable in cases where you want to opt for a room alone or we don’t find a room partner. In other cases, we will try to club you with another person, preferably of same sex.

REVIEWS

from our friends

An amazing trip, an amazing guide, and an amazing country!

The company allowed us to customize the trip because we were four people traveling together. The bike routes took us on roads that only a local could discover, through villages, fertile farmland, mountain climbs, and breathtaking coastal vistas. We felt that we really saw the country and the people close up, and our guide was very informative in addition to being a calm and competent bike guide. He handled small mishaps, such as a minor collision between one of the bike tour participants and a local on a bicycle, with grace and a steady hand. He was always well organized and worked very well with the driver, who I must say, handled the busy and sometimes arduous roads with great skill. I cannot speak highly enough about our guide, driver, and the company.

We really enjoyed the coastal cycle trip. I found the company online, and they were quick to respond to my emails, and incredibly helpful. Our guide was superb throughout the trip, giving us interesting information, cycling at just the right speed, making sure the trip was tailored to us in terms of the distance, and making sure we always had enough water 🙂 Our driver was also super smiley and helpful. The cycle routes were great, we got out into the countryside which was beautiful and cycling up the national park gives you awesome views.
