Emma "we are keen independent travelers but so like the Social Cycles concept and tour plan that we decided to do the Cambodia /Vietnam tour. If you are into a 5 start boring bus tour then this trip is not for you but if you want adventure, explore local communities and feel alive then these guys are for you. The cycling was through scenic back roads, local communities and mostly rural farm lands. Child..."

    My wife and I completed Brett's Cambodia to Vietnam tour on February 13. I have traveled over much of the world and have had more than a few adventures. This one was excellent in all respects. Brett has a laid back approach but a remarkable attention to detail. The trip went off without a hitch. The tour was amazing and very satisfying. We toured a number of farms and organizations that are doing good for the local people. Very inspiring. Before the trip, my wife and I were concerned that we would not be able to keep up with the bicycling. We are healthy, but not especially fit, and we are a bit older; I am 68 and my wife is 57. It turned out that our worries were misplaced. The cycling was challenging but far from overwhelming and we did just fine. As others have mentioned, this is not a good tour for people looking for five star accommodations. Lodging was clean and comfortable but occasionally a little basic and food was always good. My goal now is to try to convince one of my grown children or one or two of my more adventurous friends to take one of Brett's tours. I know they would not be disappointed.

    Our ride with Brett from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City was one of the most memorable trips I have ever done. It was the perfect balance of physical challenge and authentic exposure to the off road realities in Cambodia and Vietnam. We have cycled in many countries but nothing even vaguely compares with this experience. I was particularly moved by our guide Brett’s commitment to showing us the roads less travelled in these countries and his gentle and non-intrusive encouragement of all of us to see these places as he sees them and to follow him on this physical and social journey while carefully attending to our safety. A real odyssey on so many levels. We are still baking in the afterglow.

    I've been fortunate enough to join Brett on two trips with Social Cycles now, met some awesome like minded people and had some great laughs As you would expect, the accommodation is not 5 star but clean, comfortable and compĺemented with friendly staff. The Reid mountain bicycles are comfortable, well maintained and fit for purpose, the cycling legs each day, although challenging, are achievable with some training. If you want a cycling adventure holiday with purpose via the road less travelled, visiting and learing from local NGOs, with great people and great food.....this is it Brett and his support team are very well organised, professional and great fun to tour with Looking forward to my next trip with Social Cycles.

    This trip was beyond my expectations - Brett was an supportive, well-educated guide whose support personnel (guides, mechanics, drivers, hotels, tours, etc.) were incredibly well organized, going off without a hitch at each location and when we crossed countries from Cambodia to Vietnam. I sustained an injury during the trip and was whisked off to an extremely clean, modern emergency room to be checked to ensure the injury was minimal (which, indeed it was!) This is not a trip for those expecting 5 star accommodations and food. This is for the adventurous and those who want to be truly immersed in the local culture, food, customs and social issues. I was impressed by the ingenuity of the NGOs that we visited and how fellow country folk help each other as one large family, caring for each other to ensure education, food, medical care - the basics for living - are being met. On a regular tour, I would never had the opportunity to meet these amazing folks and understand the needs/resourcefulness that exists within these countries. Brett's commitment to socially responsible travel shines through out this trip, thus making the experience unforgettable and life changing. Our small group of 12 cyclists bonded and watched out for each other, thus adding to why this is one of the best trips I have ever experienced. Now - be warned - the weather is not for the feint of heart. I come from a very dry climate so I purposely chose the "dry season" to visit Vietnam and Cambodia, but the 88+ degree days with 80%+ humidity was very taxing for me. Although my legs didn't fatigue with the cycling speed/distances, even with using electrolytes, fruit and plenty of liquid to sustain me while cycling, to my surprise, the heat did me in, forcing me to rest out a leg every so often during the trip. I didn't expect that type of reaction and no amount of training could have prepared me for my physical reaction to the heat. But - I didn't let that stop me - I still participated to the extent of my comfort level and retreated to the bus when necessary to recuperate. There were times that the off-road cycling took me beyond my comfort zone, yet because the group support was so strong, I made it through and am a better person for it! I felt I got my full money's worth and MORE with this trip. For those with a spirit of adventure in your heart - don't hesitate to participate in one of Brett's trips. You will be changed in your view of yourself and how you see the world. It was one of the best, if not THE BEST travel experience I was able to take! Thank you so much Brett - you are an amazing host and person who shared your love of people and their cultures with us! It was truly a life-changing experience for me.

    Wow Wow Wow!!!! I just returned from the cycle Cambodia to Vietnam trip Dec 2017 I have done many of these types of adventure trips, but none of them even came close to this experience. Brett will make sure that you have an epic, life-changing experience! More importantly, Brett has his HEART AND SOUL into making sure the trip is helping to make a positive impact on a social level in countries that are truly struggling. Visiting the NGO'S was surely a highlight and very eye opening. When you take a tour with Brett... yes, you cycle! but you are also helping to contribute to positive change in countries that REALLY need the help. In addition, Brett was in contact with me personally from the start. He replied to my questions and got back to me on my concerns. Other bigger companies did not do this.I really appreciated the personal communication. It is very comforting especially when traveling solo and visiting such foreign countries. If I had just one last thing to say... I would use the NIKE slogan..."JUST DO IT"

    We have been fortunate to go on a journey of a lifetime from Phonm Penh to Hoi Chi Minh. 500km in total. Brett took us right out of our comfort zones and revealed a world we didnt know existed. We cycled  through a maze of interesting back roads and pathways that revealed a side of Cambodia and Vietnam most Westerners would never see. We enjoyed the cyclying part immensely. It was a challenge at times but so worth the experience. Brett is a wonderful humanitarian who introduced us to 4 NGOs along the way  We will go home and share with others the knowledge we have gained about the NGOs we visited. He is an incredible leader and organiser. Nothing seems to rattle him. We knew we were always in safe hands and felt great confidence in all his directions. All the best for Social Cycles and hopefully oneday we will join you again. Best wishes  Joanna and Steve

The bikes were in good condition and the transport comfortable. The accommodation as comfortable. Ourxsupport crew was great and always there to help.

    Cycling across Cambodia and Vietnam was quite a surreal experience for me. I had travelled to Vietnam twice before, but never on a bicycle. There was definitely an overwhelming sense of freedom when you're peddling along the Mekong Delta and across acres of bright green rice fields (perhaps more so when you see others cramped in a car or riding along on their scooters). I was lucky enough to travel with a great bunch of people on this tour - some of whom we still keep in close contact with today. The NGO visits were eye opening and the conversations that followed allowed us all to be more empathic/responsible travellers. My biggest highlights of this tour were the people, the epic cycling (I'm not sure I'll ever travel again without a bicycle) and the food - definitely the food!

We always felt in safe hands and enjoyed the social project aspect making the trip more meaningful. we would recommend Social Cycles and would love to do another tour in the future
