Reviews

What a fantastic day! Our guide was amazing experience not only was his knowledgeable + experience with the area by his sense at humor kept us laughing all day. The bikes were a great as we have dance a few cycles around Vietnam.
We all felt very safe on our bikes. It far accepted our expectation. It was fun, interesting, and informative. The countryside was beautiful + insight into local life a treat away far tourist hubs. This was definitely the off the beaten track tour we were rocking. What a fantastic day to spend our last day in Vietnam. Would highly recommend this tour above all other cycles we have done here. 7 July 2018

Toni Colville …

I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful day today with Cong as our guide. The bicycle riding was fun and the sights were so interesting. Cong was extremely informative and friendly. We will leave a 5 star review on Trip Advisor and my husband is going to recommend your company to his friend who is traveling to Vietnam later this year.

Thank you very much for a great day! 18 February 2020
