"The rental Royal Enfield Desert Storm from Daniel went without any problem. I can really recommend this company. The bike was ready for collection as arranged and was as new. I am sure I will be returning to Daniel & Niaz in the future for a second tour of South India.
Make sure you reserve the bike from Daniel well in advance. I went for electric start, left hand gear change and disc brake and the bike was perfect. So much fun to ride on Indian roads - fulfilled a dream.

Just to say thank you for everything – Moty performed faultlessly and allowed me to concentrate on the scenery or more importantly, the homicidal traffic. I had a fabulous time and will come back again. My poor brother is deeply envious....

Hi, Just wanted to say thank you. We had a great time, Niaz was very helpful, informative and it was nice to know he would have been there if we needed him. Bikes were very well maintained, a credit to your mechanics, they went a treat and were good ole beasts (I wished I were a stone or 2 heavier for the initial kick start in a morning occassionally, but that was my failing!). Their horns were great too....and didn't wear out! All in all we had a great time, amazed that nothing went wrong, and it all couldn't have gone better. I'm going to write a little article for Horizons Unlimited's web site so will copy you that when I've got round to it.

Hope all is well.
We made it safely home and got back into the routine of work last week.
Thanks again for a superb trip. A life experience in every way.

We've just arrived back in Kochi.
Totally amazing journey and everything is good.
Thanks again for all your help.
It was definitely a trip which has started my love of India and we will be back very soon.

Everything is going very well and motorbike is great.
Thank you again for your help

I'm planning to drop the bike off about 6pm tomorrow evening. Is that okay? All went well, had a great time, bike ran perfectly.

Just a quick note to say thanks for the good service & the top notch bike you sent down. Niaz was very helpful aswell.
Apart from a few mishaps hitting the gears instead of brakes, with the old 350cc having it on the opposite side & some problems getting up & down the gears sometimes, the old girl didnt miss a beat. She was a joy to ride & people definately heard her coming. Great roar.
I covered a fair few Km's in 8 days & the bike responded great, was well looked after.
thanks again & i will recommend you & hopefully use your bikes again on my next trip to India.

Very good, Daniel. We'll connect with him tomorrow.
Thanks for your excellent service.
Date : Sat 21/01/2017 12:18
Yeah, it was awesome. Bike rode like a dream and after an initial day of bus-driver-induced fear, I settled into a happy, comfortable rhythm.
Thanks for arranging,
Hope your last trip went well. I bet it wasn't a patch on the one you did for us. As soon as we can afford it we would love to do another - life has never seemed the same since we got back. Have an excellent Christmas and give our best wishes to Naiaz.
Love from Val & Mark.

Having recently surfaced from the rigours of the return flight, I felt I could not resume 'normal' life without writing to you in appreciation of a really great holiday. The organisation was faultless, the accommodation ranged from superb to fantastic, the riding great fun Daniel, Niaz and the indomitable Ramesh all contributed to the best holiday I have had for a long time. Would you please convey my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to them all?
In short, a great experience, not just a holiday

On behalf of Beryl, Mohan and myself we would like to also express our appreciation of the trip, Phil said it all.
Love to Danny
It was so nice to meet you and I think I can speak for everyone on the trip that we all had a fantastic time. Please do thank Danny, Niez and Ramesh for making the holiday so perfect in every way. We have emailed H-C travel with our thanks and compliments. There is nothing about the trip I would have changed and it was above my expectations (even the bike seat!!). Hope your projects go well.
Love to Danny, Niez, Ramesh and yourself.
Daniel and his brilliant team looked after our group extremely well nothing was too much trouble - all we had to do was enjoy the ride, the fantastic scenery, the wonderful hotels and the great company!
I think that all of us in the group feel that this will be a hard
holiday to beat ..... we have been recommending it!
Thanks so much to you all

Just to let you know the DVD worked fine and we will watch it when we are feeling particularly miserable. Now back at work stuck in an office watching the rain through the window. You don't know how lucky you are! Thanks again for a wonderful holiday and enjoy your visit to England.

Thank you, and Robert and Prem, for a wonderful holiday. I'm sending the first 2 pictures now - those of you, the bike and the elephant. I'll sort everything else once my brain is back in gear, if it ever makes it that far

Just an email to say "Thank you" for a really good
holiday. Would definately like to do it again, when we save enough money. Now back to reality - work, and cold England.
Well thanks again - take care, hopefully we will all see you again. Love to Niaze and Ramesh.

OK my life has dulled down to a dull roar now and I have found time to sort through some pics that may be of interest to you and the lads. I know I said it to you a few times, but I would like to say once more. I had a fantastic time with you all and felt well and truly looked after.
You and the Lads were great, the bikes were great and obviously loved, the accom was great. The whole two weeks was just a fantastic adventure. You have opened my eyes to India and I would feel happy next year to hire a bike (our Janet) from you for a month, just ride off and see what happens. It will be the (Fuck the itinerary) sort of trip (Jan or Feb)
So Stay well and cheers for all the effort you put in mate.

Just to say that I had a fantastic time in Kerala. Everything was brilliant - hotels, locations, route - and all topped off by Daniel himself, ever ready to help and entertain - great guide, great guy. Wonderful holiday. Thanks.
Best wishes, Mel

Thanks very much for your help when we needed it Daniel, it was much appreciated and I think it would certainly be worthwhile coming back and tagging along on one of your tours through Kerala.
We had a fantastic experience overall, some days were more challenging than others! The bikes went very well, I was particulary impressed with how reliable they were as I have an old Triumph Bonneville, which while not ridden as often, is nowhere near as dependable as the two Enfields!

Thanks for the suggested routes, we will definitely use one of them - most likely the new road until I can get my hands on a new tube and perhaps a spanner or two.
Also, we might give you a call as to whether you may know of good places to stay if the trusty Lonely Planet comes up short.
Will talk to you soon, thanks again.

Thanks for your advice this morning, the puncture is fixed and looks to be a reasonable repair - he didn't have a new inner tube.
Also, I understood exactly what you were talking about with the notches/washers on the rear spindle, so you explained it well! Pretty simple yet effective set-up.
After talking with you about a route from Goa back to Kochi which includes some wildlife reserves and better roads than the coast option, Chris and I both thought that would be a great idea, as other than the mad traffic, our only major trouble has been estimating how long it will take to get from place to place with consideration of where we can stay.
I was wondering whether you might also be able to suggest a suitable route from Pondicherry to Goa, perhaps excluding Bangalore as it seems a fairly big ask to navigate through there. (Although I think perhaps paying a tuk tuk driver to lead us through may be a good option)
Any accommodation options you are aware of along the way would be a great help too.
Thanks again, I look forward to hearing from you. Talk soon.

hello Daniel, just a quick mail to say how much we appreciated the Royal Enfield 500s that we hired from you , We thoroughly enjoyed every minute we spent riding them and the hero worship from the locals when we rode into town , we felt proper Ewen Mc Greger & Charlie Borman !!!!! , The Bikes went wonderfully and never missed a beat , and so new we couldn't have wished for better , we were both glad to have the bikes for that extra week and felt quite deprived when we had to go back to auto rick shaws and other means of transport,. we had been quite spoilt , the riding was awesome as usual , just diving in and riding like an indian was great , as were some of the roads you advised us to ride, Naiz was very helpful indeed , and is a mine of information

Just to say a big thank you for showing us round Kerala and Tamil Nadu. We both had a wonderful time and a big thank you to your fantastic team Niaz and Ramesh. The trip was well beyond our expectations in terms of the scenery, wonderful people, lovely hotels and excellent food. We would certainly love to visit India again.
