Beginning in Hanoi and journeying further north via an overnight train, the adventure kicks off immediately. Setting out in an easterly direction, you will enter the Ha Giang province, a stunningly beautiful and unspoiled region, and discover the jewel in Vietnam's crown. The Northeast of the country borders China and is home to a vast array of ethnic minorities dotted around the magnificent landscape. The vibrancy of the tour comes in part from the wonderful locals you will meet along the way, staying for a few nights in different villages to experience the culture first-hand. The riding is phenomenal but challenging, and will surely exhilarate, enchant and potentially exhaust in equal measures!

I enjoyed the whole trip.

I have booked several organized roundtrips but I have never felt so comfortable as in this one. The member of our tour were very friendly (participants and guides). I was also impressed about the kindness of the local people.

This trip was brilliant! I thoroughly enjoyed it and loved getting out into the countryside and away from the usual hustle and bustle of Vietnam.

The home stays were excellent in terms of quality of accommodation as well as food.

In summary, the tour exceeded all expectations, especially the scenery and people along the country roads. We really enjoyed the chance to interact with the locals.

The physical challenge of cycling through has been rewarding. Many thanks to Tuan, for the logistics and for the delicious meals he prepared along the road, and the driver, who picked us up with the van wherever we stopped at the end of every cycling day.
