Feel the real Vietnam, on two wheels

We booked a 6 day mountain bike trip [tour now amended to a 5 day trip] in North Vietnam with Marcopolo Travel - fully supported, with bikes, guide, back-up van, meals, drinks and accommodation all provided. It was great and good value for such a memorable experience. Our guide, Hil, spoke good English, was knowledgeable and helpful, and ensured our small group was fully prepared for each new challenge - and always stayed safe. The bikes were reasonably high spec alloy frame Giants, with hydraulic brakes. The route was challenging, with some big climbs - up to 2,000m a day, and up to 75km. But it was well planned, so while we are normally road-bikers, not mountain-bikers, and in our 50s... we still made it! The off-road sections allowed us to traverse some truly stunning scenery with mountains, forests and paddy fields well off the beaten track. Most of the on-road sections took quiet rural back-routes that enabled us to get a real feel for the real Vietnam. And people everywhere were friendly and welcoming. The exclusively Vietnamese food was plentiful, along with regular snack and fluid stops. It was hot throughout. We overnighted in a mix of home stays in little villages, a National Park lodge and two star hotels. We have only one quibble with the otherwise highly professional trip. The chain sets on all the bikes were worn and needed replacing and some of the brakes needed a little tightening. That said, Hil was always there with spanner, Allen key etc to tweak the bikes. This trip is not for novices... But if you enjoy your cycling, you'll love it.
