Not having been to Vietnam before, we were looking for a cycling tour that would take us off the beaten track and show us the less touristy side of the country. We booked a 4 day trip that we found on the website, starting at Nha Trang and finishing in Hoi An. Staff were helpful, professional and efficient when organising the trip, and able to assist us with any queries. Trips leave every day, so it was easy to book this only 2 weeks prior – it was however non-peak season.
Our tour was fantastic and well beyond expectations. It turned out that there were just the two of us, along with our guide and driver (and minibus) for the whole trip. They both went above and beyond to make sure we were safe, happy and comfortable. Our guide Tan was outstanding, and totally made the trip. His knowledge of the area and ability to take us through the remote areas allowed us to see things we never could have seen on our own. Tan would regularly stop to talk to locals and show us how things were done in the countryside. He also made sure we had a constant supply of local food and drink that was tasty and safe for us to eat. This was very reassuring, as you do not want to have an upset stomach on a cycling tour!
We would highly recommend this tour/company, and in particular our guide and now friend Tan. We hope to be able to visit Vietnam and travel with Vietnam Bike Tours and Tan again in the future. Thank you for such a great experience!
