"Thanks again for creating our wonderful Scotland adventure – it’s a terrific thing you’ve done for all of us. After four amazing trips, I can say with confidence that traveling with you is always a great pleasure, from varied active pursuits to dining, socializing and savoring local flavor. I look forward to the next one, wherever in the world it may be!"
Tony Weida - New York, New York
"I loved this trip and everything about it! The group had a lot of camaraderie, Meghan, our BikeHike tour leader, was “the bomb” (so easy to get along with, accommodating and very aware of all the details. Extremely talented, caring, involved, pro-active and calming to all.) Looking back I would not change anything about this trip. Truly enjoyed all parts of the trip… horseback riding, rafting, meals were quaint, well prepared and special. The bike riding was out of this world gorgeous! All our guides and driver did a great job, kept us safe, were very friendly, and gave us great background and history of Peru, the ruins, people, etc. Really loved being able to go to the school to meet the kids, and see their faces, while having the opportunity to see how they live when the cameras are off. This trip changed me mentally and emotionally in a good way!"
Michelle Houriet - San Antonio, Texas
"The trip to Vietnam was amazing. I had such a blast. We got to see SO much it was pretty brilliant. I feel like I needed six more eyes and twelve more cameras just to take it all in hahaha. I was really impressed with how everything went and how much we got to do. I hope to have some more adventures in the future that are similar. Thanks for everything. You guys have truly made that trip memorable. "
Brian Wilson - Toronto, Ontario
"I’ve recently returned from the amazing Costa Rica Coast to Coast adventure. This makes my 4th BikeHike Trip and I’m already starting to think about the next one. BikeHike offers so many interesting and diverse destinations its always fun trying to decide which (and where) is next. BikeHike takes care of all the details and I just show up ready to cycle, hike or kayak. I've enjoyed my many travels with you and have made some lasting friendships as a result of sharing a kayak, dodging motorbikes in Hanoi or enjoying a fabulous meal while listening to the amazing night sounds of the rainforest. Thanks BikeHike for making adventure travel so easy!"
Denise Martinez - Denver, Colorado
"We had such a great time on our trip to Peru. Bikehike really took care of all the details and the trip was for us to enjoy. Our guides were well informed, bilingual and always attentive. The itinerary was well planned but had room for adjustment. We are all hooked on travel like this."
Brenda Ringdahl - Calgary, Alberta
"Thanks BikeHike for 2 amazing trips (Ecuador and Mexico). They both offered the perfect mix of adventure, comfort, culture, and companionship. I'll highly recommend you to all of my active traveling friends who want to "experience" a destination instead of just visiting it."
Martin Straub - Leavenworth, Washington
'When Stuart and I met on BikeHike Adventures Costa Rica Ultimate Adventure Medley in March 2005, there was an obvious connection; however, he was an Australian living in London, and I was (and still am) in Houston. I didn’t think it could ever develop into anything serious but we got along so well by the end of the trip that we decided to try a long distance romance between Houston and London over the summer. In November, Stuart moved to Houston and we married in February. One of the nice things about an adventure tour versus a regular vacation is that it shows much more of someone’s character: silliness, athleticism, leadership, competitiveness, etc. We learned a lot about each other in ten days, and we’ll continue to learn more—especially teamwork!!'
Laura Borton - Houston, Texas
"As Confucius wrote, 'a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.' For us that 'step' was to call you BikeHike. With your guidance we have become an introspective part of a world of distant lands. Meghan and Trish you've given us the best in enthusiastic, experienced, available and personalized help. We have always felt safe. It was especially fantastic for us that you arranged for a volcano to erupt in the Galapagos while we were there. You guys are awesome!'
The Potters - Calgary, Alberta
"Have I told you lately how well organized and helpful BikeHike is. I can't tell you how comforting it is to know that I don't have to worry about anything once I land in Vietnam. Thank you so much for everything you do. BikeHike rocks!"
Remy Wetherup - Mississauga, Ontario
"What a fabulous time we had on our first adventure with BikeHike! What was the best part? It all was. We had fabulous weather (even in Patagonia), terrific guides, delightful accommodations, fabulous wine, made wonderful new friends and more importantly made my husband's 50th birthday a memorable one! BikeHike did a first rate job putting together an amazing itinerary for us!!"
Paula and Brett Webber - Whitehorse, Yukon
"Six times: six successful adventures. What more can I say? BikeHike as operated by Trish Sare is, for me, the perfect match. From New Zealand to Peru, all of my trips have been every thing I had hoped for. Not for the spectator, these tours involve you in the physical connection with the real people and cultures and geography. Great service and good value keep me coming back."
Francis Duckworth - Dittmer, Missouri
"Thanks so very much for still another amazing trip – this was #8. I really enjoy all the personal touches you add to each and every one of your trips. This is one of the reasons I keep coming back. Over the years I have been truly blessed with all those wonderful things I’ve been able to see and do, thanks to BikeHike. You are an inspiration. I’m so fortunate to have such a great fit as BikeHike in my life. I’ve never been disappointed in any of your trips yet and am always looking forward to the next adventure. You make international traveling a breeze and tons of fun. Thank you!!! Thank you!!!"
Awnhee Hoberecht - Columbia Station, Ohio
"We rode, tumbled and walked our bikes down a steep, narrow path to get to the sacred waterfall of Peguche.(The local shamans come here to purify themselves.) It was tough going but worth every bruise and scratch. What an adventure! What an education! (And this is only day 3.... Can't wait for tomorrow!)"
Mike Guilarte - Linden, New Jersey
"I can´t thank you guys enough for everything you do. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for not only doing what is expected (planning trips, etc.), but always doing the extra little bit to make things perfect. I have not seen or talked to my Ecuadorian family in about 14 years, but thanks to you, I will see them this weekend. Thanks so much. Trish or Meghan or both, whoever helped, I owe you tremendously. Thanks."
Brett Sagel - Huntington Beach, California
"The Best trip Ever...Costa Rica Coast to Coast was my first trip with BikeHike and it was the best trip ever!! Tanzania was the trip of a lifetime, my dream trip, the "new" best trip ever that I didn't think would ever be topped. That is, until I went to New Zealand, and that was definitely, the best trip ever. The guides, the culture, the colors and the adventures have me keep signing up for more."
Freddi Triback - Boston, Massachusetts
"That's great Trish and BikeHike - you deserve all the praise for making 'National Geographic Adventures Best Companies on the Earth.' You have put together a wonderful team with great adventures to amazing places. I'm so glad Susan signed me up for that first trip... I gained a new love for adventure travel, going to places I would have not thought about on my own, and most importantly, gained a friend for life. Congratulations!"
Gabrielle Merritt - Half Moon Bay, California
"Our trip was so much more than we anticipated, in a most fantastic way!!"
Rhetta Vander Ploeg - Tokyo, Japan
"Wow! Guatemala was truly the trip of a lifetime. Filled to the brim with physical activity, cultural richness and much laughter. All done in a way that is so respectful of the local people, their culture and their country. I can't think of a single thing I would change. I will be back."
Janice Wright - Toronto, Ontario
"All of our guides exceeded our expectations. I went into the trip expecting a lot from our guides and they all blew those expectations out of the water. I could not believe their attitude and how up beat they always were. Everything we did Juan Carlos was so excited to do he made us feel like he was having as much fun as we were and his excitement was as if it was the first time he was doing it. Also his knowledge of the local cultures, flora, and fauna was outstanding."
Curtis and Kari Marquardt - Kewaskum, Wisconsin
