“Already a multiple-explore-trip type, after this I am looking at further cycle trips, so I guess you can consider a fairly satisfied customer.”

“Nguyen Thanh Lan was an excellent guide. We will nominate him for your Leader award. His sensitivity towards ensuring each individual member of the group had a great time was most admirable ”

“This trip was a make or break trip for me with Explore, after a couple of poor quality trips previously. It was a make-I had an amazing time! The bikes were much better quality than on previous trips and were well suited to the trip, which made all the difference. The tour guide Cham was also excellent. The cycling was nice and challenging too, with varied routes and scenery. Overall we did and saw a whole variety of things, so I feel as though I saw a lot of Sri Lanka. Being vegetarian, it was great to be able to find an array of tasty food wherever we went.”
