Why ride with Dream Riders

For Ladakh Tour ?

Excellent Service Record

You deserve nothing less than the best of the adventure of life. We have a history of excellent service ratings in 13 years of journey. Since 2009, we have been constantly rated well across various platforms - TripAdvisor (5-star), Facebook (5-Star) and Google (4.9-star) with over 600 reviews. Why and how? Do check all the reviews and find out yourself.

Itinerary beyond Just Bucket List

With us, you travel to hidden gems beyond the reach of regular tourists due to lack of limelight or infrastructure or any such reason. We design dynamic plans offering new destination/ experience every year which stands out in the crowd. We make sure that repeat clients find newness on the same tour by adding new experiences.

The X Factor

In the tours we conduct, nearly 30% of clients are either repeat clients coming for the second or third tour or are the clients who were referred by a friend/family who had travelled with Dream Riders. Why? X factor, indescribable in words. It can be warm hospitality, a friendly team or an extra mile effort to keep you safe etc. It is different for each individual. It is different for each individual. Travel with us once & uncover it yourself.

Valuable pre-tour nurturing

The tours we conduct are not an everyday affair for travellers. We evaluate an adventure lover and nurture you for the extremes. By setting the right expectation, we lay the foundation of the tour. As the second step, we assist them through phone and email in shopping, packing and getting ready for the sudden shift to adventure. Lastly, we create an ice-breaking platform for the group before the tour.

Ethics more than anything

The terrain and locations we serve are harsh and remote. Roads and weather uncertainty challenge us every day turning basic amenities into luxury services. In such places, ethics make the core of our company culture. We believe in a transparent sales approach, no false commitments, and hence, we have learned to say no. We say 'no' to any service we can't provide on the terrain.

Hospitality Experience at Hotels/ Camps

Riding on the Himalayas is tough. What's tougher is finding the right host with the right hospitality on such altitudes. The stays are handpicked over the year who offer not only good infrastructure but excellent service too. So, after a tough day of the ride, you will relax and rejuvenate at these cosy stays.

Expert Assistance and on Terrain service

We don't like the concept of outsourcing. Our team consists of highly experienced riders and seasoned travellers. The Road Captain cum Tour manager has seasoned on different expeditions over years. He/ she will suggest the best ways to tackle different kinds of terrain. No need to worry about the quick Medical kit & Oxygen cylinder.
