I’ve booked again for next year. I think that says it all!
Phil R – Australia – Mongolia
“Each day was a full-on adrenalin rush and we slept like
babes at night. We enjoyed the diverse experiences of scrambling
down a hill to visit a farming family in their home ~ a yak-hair
tent; entering temples and meeting monks and riding into
the tiny Himalayan villages unchanged for eons. And always
the amazing mountain scenery with its varied colours, textures
and myriad photo opportunities. Thank you for so many magic
moments ~ memories forever!”
June T – New Zealand – High Himalaya
"A blast. Possibly the greatest thrill of my life."
Cathal F – Ireland – India (& Vietnam)
“Like being with old friends on the best adventure anyone
could wish for, notwithstanding the Mongolians who had a
great way to teach the language – learn it or starve. Also
a good place to learn to ride a motorcycle – ride or die
in a singing tussock.”
Heather P – Australia – Mongolia
Awesome, powerful, huge adventure and a 'must do' again
Lorraine L – New Zealand – High Himalaya
“My partner and I have both travelled extensively over the
years and have lived in both first and third world countries. We
thought we had seen most things, but travelling through India
and Bhutan on motorcycles was a novel and exciting experience.”
Martin W – New Zealand – Bhutan (& High Himalaya)
"Maybe next time we could avoid the worst road in India!"
Steve T – USA – India (& Vietnam)
“Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed the
awesome experience of riding through the Himalayan Kingdom
of Bhutan. As you know we have ridden extensively and many
times throughout India and other Asian areas. All with other
tour operators. None of these were of the high calibre that
you create with your trips. We were most impressed with the
organization, number of riding hours, meticulous planning,
input and constant contact time with yourself. Nothing was
too much trouble for you. The bikes were in better condition
than we have ever had before and the backup service was second
to none. We can’t wait to join you on the next trip this
time to Ladakh.”
Lorraine L – New Zealand – Bhutan
“On behalf of Roger, Ken and myself, we thank you for a
well balanced experience with motor bikes in Vietnam. Considering
the difficult enlivenment, cultures, customs and communications
our trip was a great experience. Our tour leader Terry is
the perfect person to conduct such a tour as he is considerate,
organised, and intelligent with a good knowledge of the whole
Ken P – Australia – Vietnam
“The biggest blast in my 40+ year motorcycling history.”
Willy C – New Zealand – Bhutan & High Himalaya
“The most memorable adventure holiday we have ever had ~
‘till next time!”
Monique B – New Zealand – Bhutan (& High Himalaya)
“You certainly get looked after on these trips. I felt like
a ‘works rider’ – while I sat there enjoying a relaxing beer,
the mechanic was out there servicing my bike ready for the
next day’s ride. Perfect!”
Terry J – Australia – Bhutan
“The countryside was more varied than I expected – a bit
of everything, and then some. Great country, great people,
great group, great riding, great photography, great experience.
Hey – what can I say, ‘I had a great time!”
Murray S – Australia – Mongolia (India & Vietnam)
“Bhutan was on my list of “Must Dos” in this life and I
didn’t regret the last-minute decision to go. An amazing
country – very tranquil and spiritual, with some terrific,
well-paced riding. Being back in India also brought back
memories. I renewed old friendships and made others.”
Ian J – Australia – Bhutan (& India)
“The trip was fantastic, the group was wonderful, the support
staff were marvellous and the photographic opportunities
were boundless. And those fabulous skies… I couldn’t believe
the standard of accommodation – fabulous and it was so good
to spend time with local people who ran the ger camps.
The fact Saffron Road coped with a vegetarian in Mongolia
was truly amazing (even if the restaurants were a little
heavy-handed with the gerkins!). But best of all – the Vodka
was only $4 a bottle!”
Prof Carole R – Australia – Mongolia
“As an artist I was blown away by the beauty of the country,
its people, varied topography, flora and fauna. The horses
and horsemen were astounding. The sheer scale of the wilderness
and immense sense of freedom reminded me why I am a nomad!
Also, not a bad place for a novice rider to improve their
Leslie L – UK – Mongolia
“Riding a Russian single-cylinder Planeta through the vastness
of Mongolia is an awesome experience. The land is wide and
beautiful, the Mongolian people are warm and generous.
Best holiday/journey ever. The accommodation in traditional gers was
unexpectedly comfortable, the food excellent and the bikes
quite something else - beats travelling in a bus. I had a
Leonie W – Australia – Mongolia (& Bhutan)
"Trip? Fantastic. Riding? Great. Would I do it again?
Denis O'D – Australia – Vietnam
"An unforgettable holiday. Fabulous scenery, excellent company, hair-raising traffic with lots of colour and movement."
Di McK – Australia – Vietnam
"I enjoyed the challenges and unpredictability each day brought. All in all a very exciting, challenging and memorable experience."
Louise A – Ireland – Vietnam (& India)
"Not just a motorcycle trip, but also a culinary experience."
Dennis B – Australia –Vietnam
"Wow! What else can I say? Let's do it again!"
Adan L – Russia – India
"Sensational. Daunting landscapes dotted with glittering palaces and gorgeous forts."
Murray S – Australia – India (Mongolia & Vietnam)
"On a motorcycle – the only way to really see a country. Fantastic!"
Brenda C – New Zealand – India
"Thanks for the memories. I'll be back!"
Vince McC Ireland – Vietnam

Bob C – Australia – Vietnam
"Can we please keep the bikes as a souvenir?"

Donagh O'N – Ireland – India (& Vietnam)
"Loved being a pillion – I got to see a whole lot and I didn't have to look at the road!"
