Bill Garnett - Hong Kong Tours : North-East - Lost temples- May 08
Thank you so much for a wonderful time. I spent four days in May 08 riding through remote North Cambodia. Bernard organised everything for me, all I did was turn up and have a fantastic time. My guide was Vut and when I go back I plan to ask for him again as he is a terrific person to ride with. I have rode bikes in Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, 6 states of America including Alaska and 3 provinces of Canada and riding with Red Raid in Cambodia is as good as it gets. It was so good I am hoping to get back there again this year and do some more riding with Vut. If you are into motorbikes and riding off road you will not be disappointed. Great riding, great company.
Moses and Frisco - Germany Tours : Tour of Cambodia (14 days) - Feb 08
Hi Bernard! I write the text for your Guestbook in German so the customers from Germany can read in the motherlanguage. It was really a perfect tour with Vuth and your organsiation. We will come back . Next year we are in Equador with Enduros but 2010 could be that we are in Cambodia. Lieber Bernard! Vielen Dank für die tolle Enduro Tour Februar 2008. Wir hatten mit Vuth einen perfekten Guide der uns langsam aber sicher an das Gelände und das Klima gewöhnt hat. Wir hatten mit den Hondas einfach perfektes Material für jedes Gelände .Bei vollem Tempo durchs Gelände war die Up-Side Down Gabel nicht am Limit und die 250ccm reichen mehr als aus! Die Tour ging durch Sand ; Dschungel ; Wasser ; Berge und am Abend gabs immer eine gute Unterkunft. Wünsche Euch weiterhin alles Gute und wir kommen wieder. MOSES aus Österreich und FRISCO aus Deutschland! Thank you for all!
Romain - France Tours : Around Phnom Penh - August 08
Great! A very nice day. I was not expecting a so good quality of service because I have already been several times disappointed by services with guide. But this time, I must say that Red Raid did great! Everything has been nicely organized: different levels of riding, different kind of roads/ways, different sceneries, ... and some breaks in order to keep going during the whole day. I asked for Enduro and I got Enduro! The XR 250 was perfect for me and I have nothing to claim about. The guides did a very good job! They really adapted the circuit according to my level of riding and, very important, it is very easy to communicate with them.... And they are really cool but don't try to follow them ... I will recommend Red Raid to all my friends and I am already waiting for my next ride with them. Cheers My text in French for french customers: Salut Bernard, Très franchement, je ne m'attendais pas a cette qualité de service ayant été bien souvent déçu par des excursions avec guides auparavant...Red Raid a fait un sans faute!!! Je partais pour faire de l'Enduro et j'ai vraiment fait de l'Enduro. Les guides ont su parfaitement s'adapter à mon niveau et ont vraiment très bien temporisé la journée en alternant des niveaux différents de difficultés et des pauses tout à fait nécessaires afin de vraiment profiter de la journée entière. La 250 XR etait parfaitement adaptée et aucun soucis de ce coté la. Pour finir: Paysages magnifiques et diversifiés, différents niveaux de conduite, très bons guides, aucun probleme technique... comme ecrit ci-dessus: un sans faute!! PS: je pense remettre ca ce Dimanche, est-ce possible de faire le meme genre de circuit avec le(s) meme(s) guide(s)? Si possible, je devrai pouvoir confirmer mercredi ou jeudi... tout depend de mon boulot.
Ian Oakes - Australia Tours : The South - June 08
I recently went on a two day bike ride with Red Raid whilst on a trip to Phnom Penh. My guide Vuth took me through lots of interesting and scenic countryside on our way to Kep. Vuth was good company and is a great rider who really knows his way around the trails that criss cross the country. He showed me many interesting sights and explained the local culture and customs very well. Everywhere we went we were greeted by friendly smiling faces who love the roar of motor bikes, especially the young boys who ran out to wave as we rode through their villages. Cambodia is a fascinating country with wonderful people who always make you feel welcome. The food is great and very cheap and a dirt bike is the best way to see the sights. I recommend that you take this great adventure with the crew from Red Raid.

James and Darren - England Tours : Siem Reap to Phnom Penh Mar 08
Bernard A quick note to thanks very much for the tour – I think’s fair to say this was one trip that is going to stick in the mind a very long time. The country is fantastic and a bike is the ideal way to see it. I can hardly believe we covered so much ground in so little time and got to some fantastic and spectacular places that would have been really difficult to get to by any other means. Vut really made the tour with great riding tips, knowledge of the sights, he clearly knows his way around and is one great rider (keep doing the slides – forget how quickly you get through rear tyres!) – top bloke as well. I’ll be back next year for a tour of the south. To anyone else contemplating a trip with Bernard and his team, we can’t recommend this highly enough. We were both highly inexperienced novice riders but had a great time. The bikes are maintained to a very high standard and are easy to ride. Vut selected a mixture of dirt roads, paths and trails that enabled us to build confidence and yet provided a real challenge enabling us to really improve our riding quickly. You really can do this as a complete novice. Cambodia is just perfect for this kind of trip with plenty so see and an opportunity to get away from the usual tourist places and really get to know the country.

Hi Bernard !
Back to good old France... I met my friends, we all have in mind good memories from our trip with Vut. We watched our pictures and the one you gave me, really that was a fantastic trip, and we are just looking forward to the next one ....we will take vut as a guide for the whole tour: north-east and north-west untill the Lao border... And thanks a lot for all your advices, and to Vut for bringing us around, without him we wouldn't have discovered all these places. I will send you pictures of the trip. All the best
Eric Boynak - Hong Kong Tours : The South - December 2007
Here are some of the photos we took on our tour. I'm definitely coming back to Cambodia to do a tour of the north. As soon as I get enough money saved, Ill contact you for an itinerary. I had the time of my life during our tour. I discovered that Cambodia via motorcycle is magically enchanting and truly unforgettable. The adventure was so amazing that I continue to have dreams in my sleep of riding over those bumpy red dirt roads even now, nearly 1 month after I've returned. I have told all my friends about your company and what you offer. I have been continuously recruiting more riders for the next time I come to Cambodia. I hope you can arrange to provide the same tour guide, Tha, for my next tour. Tha was awesome. Give him my regards and be sure to show him these pictures also. Thanks. Until next time.
Steve Moss - England Tours : Custom Tour - 2007
Just a few lines to say what a great week me and my dad had . The off road riding was the best I have ever done. The country was made for it! Pass on our regards to Vut........ not only a good guide but a great rider . Also thanks to you for organising everything and your hospitality and supplying us with 2 reliable excellent well serviced bikes. Hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
Terry Adam - USA Tours : Custom Tour - 2007
I have just returned home from my Red Raid Adventure and I am still under strong influence of the wide beautiful landscape, the first-class motorcycle roads and the friendly people around there. Moving the xr 250 along those roads was worth every cent. My very special thanks go to Vuth & Bernard for the best organized tour and most excellent guided riding event I have been provided with. Looking pretty much forward to take the next possible chance riding with you again. So to all the guys out there... Get off your couch, get on your gear and come on riding!
Bertrand Dumont - France Tour : Northeast and lost temples adventures - 2007
We really appreciated this 10 days trip around Cambodia. Discovering the country with Vuth was a great pleasure. People are so friendly and generous like our guide. We would strongly recommend anybody looking for a non-classic adventure in Cambodia to take a tour with your organization. Thanks a million and see you very soon.

Norman - Hong Kong Tours : Northeast Adventures - 2006
I trust everything is fine there. I would like to thank you and your staff for a great and memorable trip even though it was just a short one. I would definitely not hesitate recommending your services to anyone planning to do a Cambodian motorbike tour adventure. With a professional service, very well maintained motorcycles, and experienced guides, I can assure anyone that they are in very good hands. I showed the photos of my trip to my colleagues at work, and they are interested in putting together a similar kind of trip late this year. We will keep you posted and I hope to see you again soon.
Alain Chauffage - France Tours : Custom tours - 2005 and 2006
"Our group was very pleased with the itineraries proposed by red raid. The trails mildly difficult to difficult but never impossible. The hotels are correct and the contact with the locals is very warm. We always feel in security"
Khyentse James - Chicago Tours : Lost temples - 2005
My trip with Red Raid was the time of my life. I was blazing through the jungle with my guide Vuth riding on a top of the line motocross bike, past Monks on pilgrimage, lily ponds, houses on stilts in the sunset, and ancient Angkor temples. We even had to use a GPS system to navigate our way through the jungle. Vuth, a native Cambodian, told me historical information about the places we visited, communicated with locals to guide the way and turned me on to the most delicious Cambodian food. I've been riding motocycles for over 13 years and this adventure was like nothing I've ever experienced before. Opportunities like this are exactly why I travel. At any moment, with any person, the direction of your life could change. So pay attention!"

Just wanted to say hello and reiterate what a wonderful experience I had riding with Red Raid. I think you guys ordered up that weather just for me too, didn't you !! Thanks so much for your kindness and your fabulous service. If you have a moment, I would love to receive an email of the photo you snapped. Cheers until next time, Gerry.
Peter - Australia Tours : Temple custom tour - 2004
Experienced off road rider, participated in the Temple Tour: " Cambodia proved to be an unusal and highly interesting place to visit .....and you won't find any better riding ........ Off road bikes proved to be the best way to get around in a developing country. And seeing another country and culture makes up for what you miss out in the pure off road tracks." Concerning the food he added: " Everywhere we travelled the food was well prepared, delicious, plentiful and cheap."
Govert - Holland Tours : Phnom Penh-Battambang - 2003
The tour offered more than I expected : everything worked out very well: the greeting in Phnom Penh, the well mantained motorcycles, the routing, the technical and cultural support, accomodation and food. Both guides - Vut and Francois - did a very professional job. I can really recommend this trip for everyone looking for exitement and adventure.
