Shit, surely there's something in the middle between Jaq's descent into Hades and the Honda dream bitumen stroll?

Wicked Hidden Cambodia Ditt Bike Tours

Greeting for Hidden Cambodia Adventure Tours.
We have a couple of sections - Cultural (Siem Reap, Angkor wat, taxis, tours), Humanitarian ( Hidden Cambodia guests giving back... wells/ waterfilters /schools etc), 4WD & dirt bike tours (day & multi day inclusive tours to remote areas) and Eco-tourism - Tonle Sap Lake.

Dirt biking is what we started with and remains Pauls love and passion. As tour director, he is still very involved and will always be on the experienced riders trips.

We have done nine and 12 days tours but mostly average about between 5 to seven days as most popular . Group sizes are small , between 2 - 6/7. For a group of 7, if you add in support people and vehicles, add another 4/5 people to work including Paul. We prefer smaller groups.. less complaining about waiting for this and that and momentum can be kept going.

We dont do a Rally.. guys say to us that they want to ride and not to spend five day racing everyone else .. so its really a tour, dirt biking being the essence of it but the destinations, the people, the culture and history is important to us and we hope that comes across. Often those riding at the rear never see Paul or anyone else thats riding at the top at all!

We own all our own bikes - we are the only opertor in the country that does that, unless that has changed recently.

Regards routes, need the number of days you weat to and your skills in datail and we propose the magic. Lots depends on time of year, road conditions and what loop is the best. We have all level of rides, beginners to experienced.

Phone signals are now nearly all over Cambodia, using an icom to contact groups has nearly died out but there are a few areas and expecially the tracks and trails that expereinced riders travel, yes .. remote, yes difficult to contact and yes, risky in terms of an accident and getting you out .. but thats the naure of the busines and yes, we dont like to push it as much as other operators - don't ride at night etc. Paul is big on comfortable sleep and good food on tour , as much for himself as much as for the guests. Guys and gals come in to race him and the sweepers, often riding from behind and pushing him them on!!. All fine but always glad when everone is back We have not have any serious incidents.

There's not any good hotels outside the main towns and so we combine jungle camps (usually one night) with mountain camps, homestays, guest houses and rural basic hotels. Trails and tours are tailor made. We also look after the non biking arrangements for our guests and their partners.

Give a shout if any questions
Ride free, Rides safe.. in the Hidden Cambodia
