    The positives of this tour are that it was extreme fun. It was thrilling and adventurous without being risky. The roads are tough to drive. Cycling is also available in this route, but that would be a serious option and more tough that is. This was perfect fun. I enjoyed it, and I made a lot of buddies. I I wish I could do more such biking expeditions soon. I also had a brief stay in Darjeeling. It was awesome place to visit. I loved it all.

    Sikkim – Darjeeling road is the best one to drive through. I always wanted to drive between these spots, but I never had a chance to do that. Once I heard of this trip, I immediately took it. It was fun, thrilling, adventurous, and awesome. I took it with my girlfriend. It was indeed a perfect vacation for us. On the downside, the climate was quite stressful and tiring on us.

    This was a great trip. We had a great time. I would love to do more such trips some time soon again. Since I'm a beginner, biking that long was quite stressful, plus the roads were not exactly that comfortable to drive on to. But kind of like a sense of achievement and great feeling to have gone and completed this journey!

    The trip was amazing. I loved it totally. I am so recommending this trip to all. I am so out of words to explain my happiness. Talking about the trip, the drawback was splurge pricing. The bike was theirs, but still the trip is costly. I wish there were more discounts or some concessions. If that was there then this trip could have been more fruitful.

    Nice trip. Biking trip was something that I want to take for quite sometime now. I had a great affinity for bike rides, but I never happened to be on one serious trip too. When I did finally take this trip, it was a complete awesome experience. I loved it. It was spellbinding. Also, the trip was not costly or expensive. The whole experience was awesome. Darjeeling is a paradise for travellers. I had amazing travel experience to cherish from this place. There are many such biking tours available for bike enthusiasts at nominal price. Definitely planning to take more such trips soon.

    Wow! This was definitely one of the amazing trips to take. I had a great and an amazing time with this tour. The biking plan was fantabulous. While, the raods are indeed complex, they are nevertheless fun. Also, there are a plenty of roadside stores to chill out and have tea. That being said, it was quite an interesting and a fun trip except for the stress of driving.
