What people say...

A few of the things our clients have said about us and our tours. We're picking these at random so if you'd like to see more you can refresh this page.

What a good decision it turned out to be; What a great company Painted Roads was to deal with. From my first general enquiry through to booking the tour, David Walker (Painted Roads) made every step just so easy. Nothing was too much trouble. David’s and his trusty teams easy / professional style and absolute attention to our every need and whim leading up to and during our tour was faultless.

Peter Dearle on Vietnam - Mekong Delta Region

Travelling through no man's land, our tour guide David, and Phong our local guide who handled the local language and interpretation through the many hamlets, gave us total peace of mind where very few tourist would tread.

Michael Papworth on Vietnam - Mekong Delta Region

We thoroughly enjoyed the Yunnan. The local people were really friendly and the scenery was superb. Cathy, the very accomplished cycling guide and the two drivers, both called Li, and our tour guide David of course, made us feel that they could cope with any eventuality. Echo looked after our every need. We also enjoyed the company of our fellow travellers, together with the crew, and had lots of laughs along the way, whilst staying in comfortable, attractive and friendly accommodation. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Pat & Keith Green on China - Yunnan

This is an authentic trip around the Mekong Delta. The sort of trip that is pretty hard to find these days. The route was along narrow tracks beside rivers and canals through the real Mekong. The kids we encountered were very excited as we passed by & the locals in general laughed & waved. I think they thought we were crazy! I suspect that they have not seen mad cyclists since the group rode through a year ago!

Tony Web on Vietnam - Mekong Delta Region

David Walker is an exceptional bicycle tour leader because he does not leave anyone behind ... every person who goes on one of his tours can be confident that he is constantly looking out for their well-being, enjoyment, and safety, from the extreme endurance riders in the front to the slowest, more casual riders in the back

Lisa Valentine - USA on Vietnam - Northeast. The 'Eighteen Special

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 on Vietnam - Northeast

Another feather in Painted Roads’s cap. Would strongly recommend PR to cyclists who want to tour, with David Walker, the best group leader we have experienced in 18 years of cycling tours.

Anne - United Kingdom on Taiwan

Another wonderful trip with Painted Roads, this time the Tri-Nations tour of Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. Great cycling, excellent food, amazing scenery and great travel companions. David Walker and his in-country teams do an amazing job of keeping us focused on the cycling whilst ensuring we have plenty of excellent food at each break, good accommodation and smooth organisation at every stop. I have already signed up for my fourth trip - it's the only way to see Asia.

David Morrison on Tri Nations. Vietnam-Laos-Thailand

If I can think of a negative I will write again.. Bloody fine tour..

Mike Albrecht on Thailand - South

A great way to see the Delta region of rural Vietnam A freewheeling and mostly traffic free tour of the Delta. A great insight into a completely different lifestyle. A fascinating tour through rural Vietnam, not to be missed. An ideal tour for those who don’t do hills!
