I loved working with Rickshaw Travel to book my 4-day Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu! Ross, the travel expert, was always available and quick to respond to questions, offering great tips and suggestions, and making me feel totally secure in my adventure. The trek was incredible and I cannot wait to book something else with Rickshaw!! Thank you!

We have used Rickshaw many times and their service is first rate. This particular holiday was rearranged at very short notice and the planning, communication and execution of everything was faultless.

This is the second trip we have booked with Rickshaw and the service is unparalleled.

On this occasion, the holiday was delayed 2 years for the reason that everyone's holidays were!

It was no hassle at all from our perspective to re-arrange this as Rickshaw dealt with it all. It was wonderful to always have the same contact too. Miles was awesome.

When the trip finally happened (to Sumatra), all of the arrangements were spot on. The transfers were perfect, the tours amazing and the accommodation great.

Locally there were some issues with services not yet being opened after the pandemic but the local team kept in touch via WhatsApp to resolve these.

We are ready to book our next adventure and Rickshaw is where we will be asking to to organise!

Miles helped us organise a 16 day trip to Borneo which we made at the end of May/beginning of June 2022. The trip was amazing and we had some truly magical wildlife experiences. The trip went really smoothly and all the guides were both freindly and professional, their spotting skills were awesome. We also stayed in great accomodation. We will definitely return to Rickshaw for future travel.

This was our second holiday booked through Rickshaw travel and again this one was amazing. The hotels were excellent , the excursions great and the transfers and flights went like clockwork.

In the planning stage Ross was very helpful and knowledgeable and answered all my queries promptly.

All in all a wonderful and stress free holiday, I’m already saving for my next adventure.
