Cycle through the charming villages in North Norfolk
The two week cycle tour more than met our expectations. First time in India and would definitely visit again. The two key components being part of a nice group of eight participants whom all got on well (4 couples) and really superb local tour guides led by Safi. India more than met our expectations in terms of being ‘different’ in that it was very busy, noisy, colourful, warm which all added to the sensory experience as well as much of the countryside being delightful to cycle through. The Indian people in all locations were very very friendly with the children particularly keen to wave and acknowledge our presence which was a nice feeling. The first days dive into the very busy and noisy hustle bustle of Mysore with cows wandering down the roads and experience of some poorer areas, then the tour moves more to the countryside where it is quieter. The final week heads down to the coast of Kerala where the cycling is easier and the temperature is hotter and the humidity is higher. There are interesting and varied accommodation types used throughout the tour. Some accommodation is delightful whilst some accommodation is ordinary.
We were a private group of 9 chaps, none of us spring chickens. We went early-March, and the weather was generally warm apart from a couple of very chilly mornings. We were led there by our brilliant leader Mikhled; nothing was too much trouble for him, and he is very knowledgeable. A wonderful country, very friendly. The trip was a good mixture of biking and mini-bus transport. Highlights were Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, and Red Sea/Aqaba. Some steep cycling downhill sections and the odd walk up hills – no great surprise at our age! Accommodation fine and food generally excellent; alcohol is sometimes available, sometimes not, so you need to plan a bit in advance if you like to imbibe, as we do. Overall view – highly recommended. (One tip – we were advised to take US dollars as well as Jordanian dinar; you only need the latter in reality).
