  • How long is the tour? How many days riding?

    This tour is 3 days long, with 3 riding days.

  • How many riders will be in the group?

    Groups can be from 2 to 16. For groups of 9 or more a second guide joins the tour.

  • Is there a minimum age for this tour?

    There's no minimum age to join the tour.

  • Can I rent a bike for the tour?

    Mountain bikes are already included in the tour. They are well-known makes with lightweight alloy frames, 24 - 27 speed gearing, V-brakes, Shimano components and front suspension.

    Electric bikes or E-bikes are available at an additional cost of USD 75. The bikes are from the brand Giant and are equipped with Shimano 9-speed Alivio, disc brakes and an adjustable suspension fork. Offered in two sizes: S = 155 - 170 cm and M = 171 - 180 cm.

  • What's the tour like?

    The cycling is on a mixture of well-surfaced roads with a few sections of hard packed dirt roads. An air-conditioned bus will travel behind the group to provide support. Participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views as the rest of the group.

    Suitability: The daily distances are not too long and the terrain is gentle so this trip is suitable for most people, but it’s advisable to have a modicum of fitness to enjoy the riding! Hiring an E-Bike also makes the ride easier.

  • Are helmets required?

    A helmet is required to be worn on all biking activities and is non-negotiable. If you do not wear a helmet you won't be allowed to cycle.

  • Am I safe?

    The tour leader is trained in first aid and emergency rescue. But to a large degree, riders must be responsible for their own safety during the tour. It is therefore compulsory that you take out travel insurance that will cover you for a cycling tour.

  • Are helmets included when hiring a bike?

    Yes, if you're hiring a bike from the operator, a complimentary helmet is provided, although you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.

An excellent way to explore the country.

Not your typical tour

(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

A wonderful way to see a country and local life rather than the usual touristy attractions. It was a great combination of cycling and boat trips.

Packed full of activities and great food

The freshest, tastiest seafood with every meal. Loved the pearl culturing facility, and the marble carving and art shop. The trek to Ngu Lam Peak was a highlight.
