The routes were beautiful and at the end of day five neither of us wanted to get off our bikes. The food was extraordinary – who could have imagined that we would be served gourmet food in remote Himalayas. The stays in village houses was incredible and we had excellent Himalayan views on all days. You went above and beyond in making sure our tour included as much interaction with local people e as possible. Perhaps that what we enjoy the most… experiencing India up close and personal.

What an amazing trip! It was spectacular! The guide and the driver were totally fabulous. They were fun to be with, knowledgeable, kind, and on top of all the details. We ate at several small, local shops (dhabas) while cycling which we were really apprehensive about initially but went with the guide's suggestions and what a great experience that was. It was just perfect. You run a great team. The hotel in Jaipur could have been better though.

What an amazing time me and my friends had during our cycling tour in Rajasthan. We were very impressed by your prompt and informative responses during the communication which gave us the confidence to go with your tour company. The itinerary was great (just what we wanted) and the guide was helpful and great company. Will surely come again to cycle in South India.

All arrangements were respectively honored by staff and agents. Sandeep was helpful in Delhi, Davindra (Devendra) was always there when we needed him and Avdesh Sharma was a brilliant tour guide for Taj Mahal (as well as a dab hand at photography. We loved Ramathra and could easily have stayed longer in this gentle country location (also dramatic when we experienced lightning and storms). Ranthambore was OK, but not a quiet hotel. Diggi Palace and Shalabh Kumar were brilliant in Jaipur.

Baba was a perfect bike coach and we had a pleasant time and wish we had more time for cycling. We had an unforgettable holiday, thank you.

I booked a trip with India on Bicycle (IOB) for myself and 3 friends and it ended up surpassing our expectations in every way!

When I was researching the trip I sent details of what we were looking for to a number of different companies and the response I got from Nutan at IOB really stood out. We wanted to do two separate cycling trips - one in Rajasthan one in Kerala - and had quite specific requirements about where we wanted to go, the kind of things we did and didn't want, the amount of cycling we had in mind, at what pace, etc. The way in which Nutan responded really impressed me - it showed she had really understood our requirements and was committed to giving us the trip we wanted. Communication throughout the booking process was excellent and overall we just got the impression of a very experienced and professional outfit. The IOB quote wasn't the cheapest but Nutan was really open when challenged on this and we all feel the trip we had was exceptional value for money.

For the cycling itself our main guide was Depi and again, I can't speak highly enough of the experience we had. Having trekked and cycled all over India, we felt really lucky to be cycling with someone with so much knowledge of the areas we visited. We all feel that, especially in Rajasthan, we just wouldn't have seen some of the places we did if we hadn't been with Depi. Relaxed, enthusiastic and good fun - we really enjoyed travelling with him and feel like we've gained a friend. We also found that Depi and the other guides we spent time with were really flexible with the schedule, ensuring that on a daily basis the focus was on us having a good time - not rigidly sticking to a plan. This was especially true with food - we were really keen to try as much local food as possible and Depi really went the extra mile in this respect. There is no doubt we wouldn't have got to try some of the things we did if it wasn't for Depi taking an interest in our interest in food!

All in all we had a very very special trip and are in no doubt a large part of that was due to the service we got from IOB. We are currently planning our next trip and as soon as we are ready to flesh out the specifics we'll be going straight back to Nutan and Depi! If anyone is reading this and would like to speak to me directly about the trip we did, I'm more than happy for you to get in touch through IOB

Last 2 days of cycling were very similar, maybe small change is needed for route. Overall a fantastic week, we both really enjoyed it.

We had a very good trip, and were most impressed by it all. Monu, our driver was lovely and V (known as that as none of us could pronounce his proper name vaibaih? (Vaibhav) was excellent guide. Many thanks for organising it all.

We had such a great time on the Kumaon village tour. Pahrata was such a great tour guide and the staff at all the guest houses were beyond excellent. We will give you a great review on Trip Advisor. We also shot a video of Denny the cook, making some of his delicious Indian dishes. His cooking and dishes were what would be expected out of a 5 star restaurant. Enjoy the photos and join my Facebook page to see more.

We have had a wonderful trip in India and your itinerary and organisation was first class. All our drivers were excellent but we would like to make a special mention for Santhosh Kumar who was very helpful and an excellent guide in respect of the area and roads for safe cycling.

We enjoyed Vaibhav's company over the five weeks and we are glad that we were able to retain him as our cycling guide for the full trip - he was excellent, attentive in sorting out the smallest problem (not that we had many) and good company.

We have such wonderful memories and we are already chatting and planning our next trip, probably September October next year to the Himalayas in the north east.

Thank you once again and we will have no hesitation in recommending your company when we get home.

We had such a lovely time on the tour and cannot thank you enough for all the red carpet that has been graciously rolled out to us. The cycling was incredible and we were sad when it ended yesterday. We appreciate the quality of guides you have provided for us. Outstanding!! We truly had the trip of our lifetime!!
