BURMA BY BIKE

I can't imagine a better way to experience Myanmar/Burma than cycling with other cyclists, and our excellent team of guides and supporters. On the bike you see, feel, smell and absorb this interesting country and it's people. We learnt so much from Myo, our leader, about Burma's history whilst cycling around wonderful countryside, visiting historic sights and resting in tea shops en route. Myo chose places for us to see that he believed would interest us all, and he got it right. His team could not have been more kind and helpful, and fun. They got our sense of humour! I just loved it all.

This is a great trip, providing an excellent overview of Burma. The guide is very knowledgeable and overall it was a very enjoyable experience. On some days I would have liked more cycling but overall it was good and I loved Burma!

BURMA BY BIKE

I was completely enchanted with Burma and travelling by bike was an excellent way to see it.  Despite its recent turbulent history, it was a very calm and peaceful place to visit with amazing sights around every corner.

BURMA BY BIKE

If you are reading this review you must be considering going to Burma - our advice is go ahead and book. It is a beautiful country with surprises around every corner, friendly and welcoming people and cycling is a great way to see the country. If you are lucky to have the same tour leader and a good group as we did, you will have no regrets.

BURMA BY BIKE

Of all the cycling trips I've done this ranks as my favourite. The cycling is quite varied (the food less so...) and there is a mix of hills and flatter bits. There's plenty of opportunities to visit sites of interest along the way and to really take in the Burmese culture. The attitude of the Burmese people was really humbling and has left its mark. This was the first trip so I am sure that as Exodus tweak it things will only get even better.

BURMA BY BIKE

On balance this was a good trip, a balance of an excellent main part (cycling in central Burma), marred by a series of cock-ups at teither end of the trip in Yangon.A number of perfectly avoidable organisational errors in Yangon at either end of the trip caused disappointment and a loss of confidence in the organisation of the trip, but the main part of the trip, the cycling, was very well organised (in particular, the cycling leader, Myo, was excellent), and biking is definitely a great way to see the country. I think that the balance of temperature,  terrain and distances intended (which were excessive for our group on the longer days, and therefore cut back by the local tour leader (on one day from 95km to 60km!) have been underplayed in the 'moderate' rating. On poor roads, and in warm temperatures, the loger journeys are challenging, and are not well suited to occasional weekend riders (as suggested in the brochure).I also feel that the group size of 18 is somewhat excessive for the logistics available; the mix of abilities within the group meant that the group became very strung out, and the passenger vehicles were bursting at the seams for the transit sections, which is not ideal considering there are some longish (up to 6 hrs) journeys.      If these issues could be sorted out, and the communication between Exodus and their subontractors improved, this trip has the potential to be very good indeed. I have been delighted with Exodus' trips in the past, and just hope this is a one off blip rather than evidence of taking their eye off the ball.

A nice way of seeing the sights and countryside of Burma - as long as you are keen to cycle up a lot of hills in the blazing sun every day.
