What an experience!

Our guide and driver went above and beyond. Biking was fun and challenging, scenery amazing, food plentiful and diverse, bikes were solid. First tour with this operator, definitely not the last.

First trip as great as anticipated

My first visit to Vietnam and my first trip with this operator lived up to my high hopes: adventurous cycling, on good roads, while exploring the rural countryside from Hanoi to Hue along the well-paved Ho Chi Minh Highway, coupled with reviewing the history of the region.

Epic ride with a personal connection

(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

An epic ride into a country that played an important role in my life as I watched the Vietnam War on television every evening and wondered if my lottery number would be called. The scenery is fantastic, the people are friendly and curious, and the food is fabulous.

Terrific tour could be even better

Lori Lee
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

The bike route was great and the tour guide (Binh) was very helpful and fun. The meals were excellent but perhaps there could have been more snacks – I tend to eat a lot when I bike – and healthy drinks like coconut water. With respect to the bikes, the operator might want to consider the woman-specific models that Giant offers in the same price range. These are just constructive suggestions for improvement. Overall the trip was great!

On the two rides that I have now done with this tour operator the mix of equipment, food and accommodation has been the best available for the relevant locations.
