1, People - The people of Vietnam make it a great place to ride a bike. We must have said Hello to 1000 people as we rode along the Mekong. The staff that Vietnam Bike Tours are excellent without exception. Special mention to our South Vietnam Guide- Tiger for his huge local knowledge, welcoming nature and great sense of humor. Also to Thang (our guide in the Sapa region) a very humble and decent guy who went out of his way adding little sections to the itinerary to ensure the tour was perfect for our ability and interest.
2, Organisation - Everything ran like clockwork, it as simple as that. We could enjoy the riding stress free knowing that every detail was looked after. At one point I got a little ahead on a climb then took a wrong turn 2 minutes later the support van found me and pointed me in the right direction.
3,Scenery- Fantastic not only is the landscape stunning but at almost every turn something unexpected will surprise and delight.
4, Safety - The bikes were in top order, the drivers were very skilled and safe, we even had our own chef to ensure the quality of food in remote areas.
5,Food- We had some fantastic meals on these tours and at the end of a great day on the bike with a cold beer to wash it down, what more could you want in holiday?!!
