    The Vietnam cycling adventure was amazing. I wasn't expecting the level of care and accomodations that Exodus Travel provided and our guide, Tung, and crew were excellent. And a great group of participants! Trip of a lifetime, thanks.

    I thought it was great! The cycling was more difficult than expected, but I kept up! I didn’t need the long sleeves and pants as much as was recommended, or the warm clothes for the Northern part Hanoi or Halong Bay. I liked it very much!
