REVIEWED BY francis duckworth on Jul 22, 2016

I recently did the Patagonia/Lake Bicycle tour with Red Spokes Co. It was my first with them and my last. The pre-departure information was spotty at best and down right wrong at worst. While the local guides were very good, nothing else was. It had been (and is) advertised at 40% off road when in fact we NEVER got off road. We were told to expect meals not included to cost around 10 pounds, but on more than 1 occasion, we were put up in isolated hotels? where we had no choice but to eat in and at a cost of 40 punds per person. (no alcohol). At review time, I furnished this information to the company and they compensated me by saying: "Thanks for your opinion." Beware.

Red Spokes Adventure Tours

I have done several tours with Red Spokes Adventure Tours. What i really like about them is that they allow you to see parts of the country you are visiting that is off the beaten track. You get a real sense of the people and the culture. The information provided on the tours is helpful and gives an accurate description of what can be expected. The tours are well supported with local guides and back up transport. I have found all the guides to be friendly and they look after you well. The tours are very reasonably priced and I think are good value for money. Red Spokes is an ethical company which believes strongly in supporting the local economy and has supported and built a number of schools in countries such as Laos. There are always opportunities to visit these local projects and this adds an extra something to the holiday. I can't wait to plan my next trip with them!

Red Spokes

I've been on several trips with Red Spokes and always found them really helpful (especially the time I lost my passport 3 days before the end of a trip and I still managed to leave on schedule!) They must have it right as a lot of the people of their trips also keep coming back! Cycling is a really good way to meet the locals and Red Spokes ethical stance really helps you get "under the skin" of the country as well as contributing to the local economy where possible. I can't really comment on bike quality as to date I've always take my own, but the ones I've seen have looked pretty good. I'm currently booked on their new Burma trip later this year and can't wait!
