Ken Dunwoodie on Vietnam - Mekong Delta Region

The overwhelming hospitality of the Mongolians was matched by David, Echo and the local team and considering the remote locations of our camps the food was incredible. This being my second trip with Painted Roads my expectations were high and both Mongolia and the guys more than exceeded them.

Keith - UK on Mongolia Khangai Mountains

We too are missing our daily dose of pedaling, of Tom Yam and fried rice, of swimming on nice beaches, and of your good company. (and beers and gin tonics !) We truly enjoyed these few days – even Eva, which is certainly the utmost compliment we can make. As I told you, I have particularly appreciated your personal involvement to make everyone feel comfortable, and to share what you like with enthusiasm. It is so different from a traditional guide, who simply does his job. We will definitely call you for another cycling experience. But for now, back to work …

Jean-Daniel, Anne, Vincent, Eva on Thailand Bespoke. QQ23/1

I thought this was a superb tour through a fascinating region, brilliantly led by David and Phong. Both clearly love what they do and this translates into an exceptional level of service. The tour itself is full of surprises, diverse ethnic villages, the awesome rocky plateau and the beauty of the rice terraces. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and would recommend it to anyone who thinks they have “done” South East Asia.

Chris Parson on Vietnam - Northeast

The tour was everything the brochure said, possibly even better. The tour leader and his assistant were always available for any assistance, giving answers to any queries one might have. The support vehicles and drivers were also very helpful, nothing was a trouble. Would definitely recommend this tou

Thanks again to David, Echo and Lee for looking after us so well. Clean comfortable hotels with friendly staff, lots of unique beautiful scenery. I especially enjoyed the off the beaten track routes through the small friendly villages.

Pat Green - UK on China - South

The tour lived up to every expectation that we had. It was a fantastic mix of stress-free cycling on smooth, quiet roads, lush scenery, wonderful seascapes and company that we could only have dreamed about. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this tour – the quality and thoroughness of the planning, the helpfulness of the tour staff but overall the quiet, unassuming role of the leader who ensured that every last detail was taken care of

Eve & Dave Jones on Thailand Bespoke. QQ23/1

NE Vietnam, following North Thailand and Yunnan, was my third trip with Painted Roads this year. Once again the trip exceeded my expectations with both the challenging but achievable and rewarding climbs together with the fantastic scenery probably resulting in it being the memorable tour to date

Arthur Brittenden - UK on Vietnam - Northeast. The 'Eighteen Special

David Walker and his local support teams were top notch in all ways. Painted Roads is truly a high class outfit
