Just returned from another brilliant trip to India with Atul and his crew at A B original tours on the Coconut Tour through Kerala. Like most of the tour riders (and pillions) I’m a repeat customers with Atul, having done a two week Himalayan trip in 2014.

A Royal Enfield is a great way to experience the mayhem, chaos and beaty of India and its people. Atul makes it so easy, all you have to do is get to India and A B original tours look after the rest. Great roads and scenery, safe well maintained bikes, excellent accommodation and food (bugger the diet). Atul makes it a pleasure to share his passion for riding and his country.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending A B original tours for your next riding adventure. Be it a mid-life crisis, special ocassion or just to enjoy the magic of India on a motorbike go with A B original Tours.

Can’t wait to do Rajasthan (or the Himalaya or Kerala again).

We know Atul well now, having been on a three week Rajasthan Tour in 2012 and a three week Himalaya Tour in 2014 so we were very comfortable with the idea of doing his very first Kerala Tour in January 2019. As usual all pre-tour arrangements were clear and precise, what else would you expect from Atul. The tour was a great experience, good motorcycling, more bend swinging than Rajasthan but not as challenging as the Himalaya, with plenty of time off the bike to either relax or join in on Atul's interesting and enjoyable side tours, the choice is yours. The roads were interesting and varied and a little less chaotic than northern India, the whole tour had a more relaxed feel with a wide range of scenery and climate, from cool hill stations at up to 7000ft altitude to warm coastal resorts. A great tour to suit couples with limited holiday time with a good balance of motorcycling, sightseeing and relaxing if required. Accommodation and food were excellent too, some of the hotels were in super locations with amazing views. Thanks Atul for yet another thoroughly enjoyable tour and experience.

In the past, we have participated in the Rajasthan and Himalayan tours organised by AB original Tours. Because we enjoyed these trips so much, it encouraged us to sign up for the new Kerala tour, the first tour to be conducted in the south of India. From start to finish, it was perfect. The accommodation was excellent, the route through varying countryside and topography was well thought out, and the daily mileage for motorcycling was just right. The Royal Enfield Bullets were new or nearly-new, and all in excellent condition, meaning that at no time was there a holdup due to breakdowns. As usual, backup support by Atul’s team was faultless, a great group of guys.
Although this is a motorcycling trip, there are plenty of extra planned highlights which we are not mentioning, so that you will be pleasantly surprised when you do this trip!
All in all, a great way to spend two weeks motorcycling in one of the most interesting and fascinating parts of the world. Many thanks to Atul and his wife Shelja for organising this new trip. Highly recommended, 10/10.

As a pillion rider, I had all the excitement without having to concentrate - apart from taking photos. A brilliant trip which covered a variety of scenery and experiences.

The motorcycle trip we did in January 2019 around Kerala with AB Original Motorcycle Tours was the holiday of a lifetime. After doing a trip with Atul and the team from AB Original in Rajasthan in 2014, we were very excited to be going on another tour, still on the Royal Enfield motorcycles, but this time in the south of India. We were expecting some of the same challenges of riding in the Indian traffic and road conditions we had experienced before, but with completely different scenery, places to visit and things to do and see.

The 2 weeks we spent on this tour was every bit as good as the previous tour. Some of the roads we travelled on up into the mountains of Kerala and Tamil Nadu were quite mind-blowing. The accommodation that Atul arranged was second to none and the food at the hotels and restaurants we visited a constant source of delight. As on the previous trip in Rajasthan, all of the arrangements and logistics went without a hitch and full credit to Atul and the team for making this happen again.

My wife and I rode two-up on the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 and found it more than up to the task over the trip. The riding was very well spread over the 2 weeks, with some long days followed by a rest day in some amazing towns and locations. We found this mix to be very good, allowing for some challenging riding and some relaxation and getting to know the other people on the tour a bit better on the non-riding days. I would happily recommend this tour to all those with a passion for India, Royal Enfields and having a really good time with a great team and group of people.
