It was an amazing holiday. We saw a variety of landscapies and interesting items. The routes were varied and entertaining. I had the option to ride the bus when the road was too steep or too busy.

Savouring a section of India at bike speed

5
It would be foolish to try and get a taste of all of India in two weeks. You would need to spend at least half your time flying and busing from one corner to another. This tour allows you to savour a corner of India at a reasonable pace. We had a chance to experience the moderately sized city Mysore, see the beaches, the hill country, national parks and cycle both in moderate traffic (hint- don't look back) and on quiet back roads.

Fantastic trip

This was a whistle stop tour of southern India with a great variety of scenery, some absolutely amazing food & fantastic accommodation. The cycling was straightforward & the Exodus tour guides were great. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Sensational!

I did this trip with some trepidation as to whether it would live up to a previous cycling trip I had done with Exodus (IndoChina & Angkor) which was brilliant, no worries there, this was an amazing experience in so many ways. Firstly the variety stands out for me, each day offering new unseen before sights, giving another view of India. The organisation was very good, accommodation and eating arrangements all hassle free. Bikes were in excellent condition and easy to ride with their smooth tyres. The trip is classed as 'challenging' but don't be put off by this as only a short ride on first day and the 36 'hairpins' are a challenge. Neither are compulsory and quite a few walked without bikes instead. The rest is fairly flat and downhill and many days are short as you start early to avoid the heat. The roads are mainly quiet with a few busy bits but the drivers in India seemed more accommodating than those in UK! We were a group of nine and the group gelled really well, we had a lot of fun :) one of the group even had a guitar which added to the entertainment! It was very hot in March and it is essential to drink lots of water at every opportunity. One particularly good part about this trip is the very few transfers (on the bus) that is has, some trips have quite a few I have noted. Overall India was a revelation to me, quite different to what I was expecting. The people are friendly and keen to speak to you as they practice their English. I took away so many memories and am so glad I decided to do this trip. In summing up there is nothing not to like about this trip.

Our first Exodus cycling trip and we will definitely be travelling with Exodus on our next adventure. It is a great introduction to India if its your first trip (its relative prosperity makes for less hassle from residents) and it offers a different perspective to the hustle, bustle (and many more tourists) of Rajasthan if you have travelled further north in the country. Beautiful and varied landscapes with an interesting itinerary and most memorable for us for time spent simply chatting with our guides along the way about life in India.

I'd heard so much about Kerala but have to say this tour left me somewhat underwhelmed. I've done other trips with Exodus which have been brilliant. I'm a keen cyclist. I found this trip go be lacking in experiences, sights and very restrictive. Whilst the cycling had its pluses, I actually felt it was very restrictive and meant we had little time to really get to know anywhere. Once the cycle day was over there was little guidance, time or opportunity to really explore, instead sheparded to hotel or tourist restaurants. I wouldn't recommend this trip.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Fiona for her review, although we are sorry for her disappointments. Our local operator is currently working to ensure that our tour leaders are providing regular and comprehensive briefings to our clients, and whilst the bikes we allocate to our clients are in good condition and usually well-received, we have taken Fiona’s comments into consideration. We understand that the tour leader assisted Fiona after her accident and we do hope she felt well supported.
