Tremendous guide in Prasert (Sert). He had a unique blend of enthusiasm, humor, support, and overwhelming motivation to be sure we were satisfied with all aspects of the trip.

This trip pushed me to the limits of my fitness in the best way. The guide and drivers were kind, friendly and supportive. I saw parts of the country I never could have experienced from a car.

I had a wonderful time, and cannot say enough about the support and guidance received from Sert, Pong and Rong.

Some very tough hills! I expected the climbing to be more like in Europe, where we use switchbacks, but in Thailand, it’s just straight on! 15-20% sections aplenty. Great value for money as the guides, accommodation and food were amazing. I will definitely choose SpiceRoads again.

Our guides Sert & Noom were brilliant - good company, calm and encouraging. Fabulous scenery, great food! The tour had some severe testing climbs at up to 23%!. You really need a minimum of 32t on your rear cassette.

Wonderful tour, led by two fantastic leaders Noom and Sert, always supportive and helpful, and an excellent support team alongside us. Hard cycling, but with the support of the full team, we successfully completed the route. A great route, spectacular scenery and good accommodation, and brilliantly organized.

An outstanding trip – extremely well organized and professionally run by the tour guide leader Noom and his team of ride guides, mechanics and drivers. Beautiful scenery, superb road riding and relentlessly excellent food! Definitely recommended.

Some tips…. Early starts and overnights stays in the high mountains can be cold during winter season, so bring warm kit. Walking around the refreshment points, restaurants and short walks to viewpoints on rough surfaces is hard on your cleats. OK if using SPD type MTB shoes but recommend bringing cleat covers if using road cleats. Also, you may want to walk up some of the climbs. Whilst they are not particularly long, they can be fairly steep (15-20%) in places. And, if bringing your own bike - a compact chainset and at least a 28-tooth cog on the rear cassette should get you up the climbs OK.

Guide Goi who was an excellent tour host and ride guide in all aspects and his enthusiasm and lively personality really helped the tour sparkle. The hotels were very good to excellent.

The ride was very challenging but the food, our fantastic guide Noom was the best we have had! He and Mr. Chien worked so well together. Noom knew so much about all the cycling. It was a challenging tour and he was very encouraging to us and very happy all the time. He took us to see several sights that we were not expecting and we really enjoyed his food expertise. We ate so well!

The North Thailand by Road tour is a very challenging and rewarding experience. All the accommodation was A1 and countryside that we road through was some of the most picturesque that I've had the pleasure of seeing.

Meticulously planned and executed trip around a beautiful and unspoiled part of the world. The riding was challenging and varied, the food excellent and the accommodation chosen to provide fantastic views and experiences of local culture. The guides were unbelievably obliging and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them. I was highly impressed by the quality of the cycling and the trip overall. Noom was quieter but extremely polite, helpful and efficient and both complemented each other.

Noom, Mr Thai and Dom were fantastic guides and support. The riding was incredible and so was the food. The trip was flawless. We really did have the most amazing week - we will be coming back for more Spice Roads tours!

Guides were simply terrific - thorough knowledge of roads and local cuisine.

Truthfully, you've got a good thing going. I'll look to you when I think about a next cycling vacation in Asia (or elsewhere?).

Mr Aum, Mr Sit and the crew were fantastic. With such a big group and such big days they managed to keep everyone smiling and well fed! Mr Aum is a real asset to Spiceroads. This was our second trip with him and his attention to detail and genuine concern for all the riders is amazing.

The food was great, always plenty to go around and Mr Aum is a pro at choosing the best dishes.

The guides and crew were excellent and overall the ride was an amazing experience. I loved the food, the scenery and the quality of the riding.
