If you want to go on a standard Social Cycles tour, but want to keep it a private experience between you and your friends and family, the price varies depending on the size of your friends. If you have a group of eight people, then the price is the same as the standard tour price listed on this website. If you have less than eight, the price will be marginally higher. If you have more than eight, the price will be marginally cheaper. How does my donation work ? We ask for a A$200 minimum commitment from all riders. The money is given directly to the NGOs that are chosen by you. All of it. No bank fees, no commissions. The group from every tour engage in a ‘Donation Debate’ on our last night together. We’ll discuss what impressed us, confused us and inspired us. As a group, we’ll make a decision as to how we’ll divide the total money. It’s your money and your experience. It can, and will, go to whatever NGO touched you the most. What's included in the tour price ? Refer to each itinerary, but generally speaking, each tour will include meals (most breakfasts and dinners, some lunches), all accommodation, bike hire, guides, support vehicle to carry your bags, water and fruit for the ride, entrance to particular local attractions (with specific guide, ie; Angkor Wat, Persepolis), NGO engagement experiences and arrival transfer from the airport. What are the sleeping arrangements ? We’ll always be in an air conditioned room (where possible). If you’re travelling with your partner, you’ll have your own room. Otherwise rates are based on twin share. Single supplement can be arranged from AU$150 to $490 depending on the tour. Do I need a visa & medical vaccinations ? In Iran, you will need a visa and we will help you with this. All other countries you will need to organise your own visa prior to the start of the trip. Cambodia and Laos can be obtained on arrival. Vietnam (if required) needs to be obtained prior to arrival. Few nationalities need a visa for Samoa. See your travel doctor for medical vaccinations and advice. How much is a totally tailored experience? We can do this in one of two ways… we can either tailor make an experience and price accordingly, or you can tell us how much you want to pay and we can work within that. Just tell us your ideal destination, days away and a little bit about yourself, and we’ll put together a package for you. What should I pack? We’ll send more info for each specific tour, but generally… pack light. A few light weight shirts – one or two long sleeve shirts to avoid any unwanted sun burn, sneakers, shorts (it can get pretty muddy), and something a bit fancy for dinner. And when we say fancy, we mean anything outside of your comfortable gym clothes. It’s easy enough to purchase any last minute amenities like toothpaste and moisturisers in the larger cities. You’ll find that it’s handy to carry a small bottle of sunscreen, insect repellent and bandaids. Take a convertible adapter so you can charge your cameras and phones etc. What's NOT included in the tour price ? Not included are your flights, travel insurance, visa fees, guide tips and donation for the NGO. You’ll also need money for some meals, souvenirs and drinks. Beverages are not included with meals. How safe is it ? We won’t facilitate a trip where there is political unrest. The people in the countries we travel are incredibly friendly and crime rates are low. We monitor Smart Traveller from the Australian Government for up to date details and accurate information. We believe all countries we travel to expose our riders to the same or similar risks as Australia, UK or New Zealand. Can I speak to somebody for more info? Of course!
