    It is important to understand in advance just how physically gruelling this trip is. I cycle 500-600 km per month but only managed to cycle up 2 of the 6 passes without assistance, and had to sit out one day completely due to a combination of altitude, heat... Read more

  • James12th May 2018
    I was able to sort through the various trips until I found a couple I wanted to take. After I booked I misjudged the travel time between when one tour ended and when I had to get to the next one (I didn't realize there were no evening flights where I was). TourRadar was great in connecting me with the tour operator and they were in turn great with helping me change the itinerary so I could do both trips without any extra hassle.
