    Our first group guided bike tour was a wonderful way to see Vietnam. The daily distances seem daunting, but the riding routes are “cherry picked”. The cycling minimizes physical effort (terrain is undulating, flat or downhill) and maximizes scenic... Show more

    The Support Team is awesome. Always have nice drinks & snacks waiting for us at the breaks. My water bottle is magically full during the breaks. It is also nice to have a rest day after a long riding day.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Where and when does the tour end?

      The tour ends in Ho Chi Minh City, and after breakfast travellers are free to depart the accommodation at any time. Take the day to tick off some of the suggested optional excursions, or move on to your next destination!

    • Where and when does the tour start?

      The tour starts at the May de ville City Centre 2 Hotel, which is located adjacent to Hanoi's old quarter. At 6pm an important welcome meeting will be held, where you can get to know your guide and tour group. You have the day to explore and settle in, but be sure to arrive back at your accommodation in time for the meeting, the details of which can be found at your hotel reception.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      We are happy to pre-book your departure and arrival transfers, however this is not included in the tour price and will be an extra charge. Please contact our Travel Experts to arrange this once you have a confirmed booking.

      Alternately, metered taxi ranks are situated outside the airport entrance. At exit gates A4 and A5 on level 1, you will find Noi Bai Airport taxis (+84 4 3886 8888) The drivers are identifiable by their yellow uniform shirt. This company charge per trip, and a taxi to your hotel should cost approx. US$18 (VND350000) in total.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course we can! If you wish to arrange additional accommodation then please contact our customer support team once you have a confirmed booking.

    • What is the age range?

      This tour accepts travellers between ages 15 - 99, however the general age range of participants is from early 20's to late 30's.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      Many solo travellers join this trip, and you will be roomed with a member of the same gender for no additional cost. This is an amazing way to bond with your fellow travellers and enrich your travel experience! If you did want a little more privacy then a single supplement can be paid in most cases, and we can arrange you a private room for the duration of the trip. Please contact our travel experts for more information.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date, therefore the tour operator cannot confirm a set hotel list until this time. You will be spending 12 nights in a hotel, 1 night at a homestay and 1 night on an overnight sleeper train. This trip is classed as one of Intrepid's Originals style tours, and the accommodations are selected to provide travellers with an authentic local and cultural experience. Hopefully, this list will give you a better idea of what kind of accommodation you can expect while on tour.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Do you supply the bikes?

      Bike hire is not included in the trip cost. You may choose to bring your own bike or hire one in Hanoi.
      HIRING YOUR BIKE IN HANOI:
      Bike Hire is available from Intrepid's local operator in Hanoi. Please advise your agent at the time of booking your height so that an appropriately sized frame can be organised for you. The cost will be for the whole trip and this includes the relocation of the bike back to Hanoi at the end of the trip. This is to be paid to your Group Leader.

      The bikes available for hire from the local operator are either TREK 4500, Giant Revel or Giant Rincon (for Days 2-5) and then Giant Rincon Disc (Days 6-14). Bikes have aluminium frames, 64cm wheels and off-road tyres. If you wish you can bring your own seat, clips and accessories, based on fitting the above models. Alternatively, your leader can assist if you would like to purchase any accessories locally (extras are not available for hire).

    • Can we leave the tour early?

      You are free to join and leave your group whenever you please, however, as these are pre packaged prices it will not alter the tour cost. You would then need to make plans for your departure transportation independently as well.
