    4.5 - Excellent

    I am reluctant to give an excellent award as I think it is overused by reviewers. However, in this case I have no hesitation. What makes it excellent is the level of organisation that goes on beforehand and during the tour. On a cycling tour much depends on the back-up team of the truck driver (for the bikes) the bus driver (for the riders) the mechanic who rides behind and most of all the tour guide who leads. I have met many tour guides in my time but none have come close to Dahn. Needless to say he lectures in tourism and has won an award for his tour guiding. It was his ability to deal with everything from tired bikers to chefs and waiters in local restaurants that make him special. But most of all it was his ability to bind a number of strangers into a cohesive group with his personality and sense of humour that made the tour wonderful. The standard of the bikes was very good as was the level of comfort of the hotels and the overall quality of the food. What is best of all is the backroads taken through rural landscapes, villages and small towns where most tourists do not get to see. There have been discussions about the level of fitness to enjoy the tour; the average pace was about 20-22k and if you can keep that up for an hour or two you will be fine. We were told emphatically that we had to bring our own helmets which we did at some inconvenience and loss – we donated them at the end. Others on the tour did not and they were supplied.

    Great tour well led by our leader Tiet. Disappointing to miss out on the rainforest section advertised. Program changed after booking. Highlights were home stay, Hoi An, Dalat. Food and hotel in Nimbinh were below the otherwise high standard. Tiet made the trip for us all. His personal approach, sense of humour and attention to detail was excellent. The support crew were always on hand and did an excellent job of looking after us. Biggest reccomendation cut out Nimbinh and reinstate the rainforest. A couple of rest days are a good idea especially in places like HoiAn. Loved it!

    I really enjoyed this tour. Cycling really gave me the chance to see the real Vietnam, not just the parts designed for tourists. my only complaint about the trip is that we didnt get enough time at some destinations due to getting in so late. it would have been great to have an extra day in Hue, Hoi An, Quy Nhon, Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh to allow us to explore the city's at a more relaxed rate. it would also breaak up the riding allowing us to recover a bit more before hitting the saddle again making the riding that bit more enjoyable.

    I loved the trip. Vietnam is a beautiful resilient country and Huy went to a great deal of effort to ensure we got to see it at its best.

    Overall had a great time. Trip exceeded my expectations. Leader made the trip for me though. I don`t where Vu gets his energy, but he has lots of it and made the trip a lot of fun.
