It truly was biking through heaven. such pretty landscapes and the team made us enjoy through our entire road journey. They are a team of youngsters who know how to travel ethically. They arranged photography workshop for all travelers free of cost and we learned while we were traveling. I have come back home with beautiful memories. Cheers! <3

I went to Tawang Bike trip with my friend. We were driving through heaven. The journey was so mesmerising, felt like a scene from Rockstar movie. It was worth the money we spent and Natasha is doing an amazing job organising trips to such offbeat places. She also gave photography lessons. We went back home with good memories.

I did the Tawang Bike Trip with Awara Feet and these guys are gem in traveling. They made us travel places which were not mentioned in itinerary and was extra. They truly love traveling and if you are looking for young like minded travelers, I highly recommend Awara Feet.

Awara Feet was suggested to me by the hostel I was staying at. I wanted to travel North-East of India and these guys made it possible. We biked through the Sela-Pass and Bombdilla. I enjoyed my journey with them and made good friends along the way. Highly appreciate the fact that these guys are adapting to sustainable ways of traveling which is hard to see in India.

I have been biking across India since many years and North-East was the only part left to cover. I came across the advertisement of Awara Feet and decided to join the tour organised by these guys. The journey was amazing and roads and views were mesmerising. It truly was biking through heaven. We got to experience so much culture and Sela-Pass was always on my bucket list. These guys are doing an amazing job. Hip hip Hurray!
