Good afternoon Khanh Ly,

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had cycling through the Mekong Delta, and how much we enjoyed having Mr. Trong as our guide.

Thank you so much for accommodating us, and for being flexible as we figured out how to pay our bill!

My parents have cycled many miles through many countries, and both agreed that this was their favorite trip. When we get settled back home I will be sure to write a proper review of our experience with Vietnam Bike Tours. 

Thank you again, and we hope to ride with you again some day.

Annie, Matthew, Sam and Louisa

Hey Tom,
Were just about over our jet lag so I thought Id send some feedback on our trip from Luang prabang to Hanoi.
First of all, I'd like to say It was a great adventure. We definitely got off the tourist track and saw the country and the people from a different angle.

I think the first leg, in Laos was my favorite. The combination of backroads, wonderful people, good foods and great guides made the long dusty days enjoyable, Mr Xee Xong was super caring and attentive to our needs and desires. he kept great track of everyone and made sure we got good lodging, arranged dinners and explained the routes to us as best he could.

Whoever worked out the boat ride/shuttle/boa tride on the Nam Ou was genius because none of us relished the alternative.
Mr So did a good job as backup guide and mechanic. As you know, these are not top of the line bikes, so keeping the derailleurs operating in the dusty conditions was a challenge. The drivers were a great support in many ways..

Once we got into Vietnam we had to adjust to the new guide and driver. It was difficult to go from 2 guides and 2 drivers to one guide and one driver. Mr Quinn took some getting used to as well. I appreciate his knowledge of the many bike routes along the way. They took us off the main track through some wonderful country. One trouble, however was his inability or unwillingness to communicate the intended route for the day. Since we were familiar with the itinerary we could let him know what we felt up for that day. When he changed the route for the day without explanation, which was most days, we felt a bit at his mercy. This bothered some more than others. I do think that on a tour like this, a brief description of the day ahead is important information for the client to have.

The lodging was mostly good to great, but some of those mega resorts like in Dien Bien Foo and Cuc Phong were a little much. It was nice to have the last few days to just relax on the cruise in Halong Bay.

So, I think this tour was wonderful. We would have enjoyed knowing ahead that the itinerary is subject to change and that Mileages and elevations may differ from those on the itinerary.

Choosing guides, like Mr Xee that can communicate the plan and the options available to us would be much more professional. Also, a page on the website with info on visas, changing money, suggested immunizations, etc would simplify preparation.

You said that you don't get much feed back, so here you go. I hope it is useful. We'd love to return someday for another tour.

subject:Review of our trip March, 2019

Please forward this review to Li

I just completed a Trip Advisor review, giving an overall rating of 4 for our trip. I thought more complete feedback might be helpful to you.

1. Both of our guides tried very hard to make our trip enjoyable. They were very good at handling my husband's dietary needs; they never balked at our requests for very early morning starts to avoid the heat (once 5:30am, often 6 or 6:30). Suhan fit in a trip to the Golden Bridge which I appreciated and made their day much longer. They both were always agreeable and worked very hard to attend to our needs and interests. Suhan made a point of getting photos of us on our tandem many times - a real treat for us because we usually travel alone with no one able to capture us on our bike. 

2. Tong was a wonderful driver! Excellent driving skills and he really went out of his way to assist my husband... bringing baguettes, avocados and mangos in the mornings once he realized we'd like to have that for breakfasts and dinners,. Preparing our rest stop snacks, always smiling and assisting with whatever needed to be done. Our second driver was also excellent.

3. All of the hotels and homestays, with the exception of the one we wrote you about during the trip, were excellent... probably better than I would have expected. Specifically the hotels in Hanoi, Hoi An and Saigon were really special.

4. The recommended stops along the way - the boat ride and caves, the pottery village, Khe Sanh, My Lai, the coconut/candy stop in the Mekong Delta and the sites in Hue, the Presidential Palace in Ho Chi Minh City... all were excellent. Our itinerary, which you adjusted to include my interest in some American war sites and our general interest to travel as much in small villages, away from the cities, was great. The overnight train ride was surprisingly comfortable ( We were lucky no other passengers joined our cabin,) 

1. The most serious problem was our first guide's limited English. Although he was very attentive as I mentioned above, (and he gave GREAT foot massages!!!), his English skills were really sub par. We were very frustrated by this and stopped asking questions because he either often didn't understand our question or we couldn't understand his responses. We were quite surprised to have a guide with such limited English. Our second guide, Suhan, was fine and we were greatly relieved to be able to converse comfortably with him. 

2. The restaurant that we stopped at in the Mekong Delta was a real tourist trap and had lousy food, expensive prices. They gave free or reduced meals to the guides which I suspect is why we stopped there but it was an unfortunate stop..

3. Our guides couldn't keep up with us... perhaps more effort could be made to match riding ability between guides and riders. I didn't find it a huge problem because both guides were happy to let us go ahead, once they could see that we were accomplished, safe riders, but it did mean we lost riding time because we had to wait for them with the van rider several times. And they made more rest stops than we would have preferred, increasing our van vs riding time. 

1. Teach the drivers to look for shade when stopping! The guides and drivers didn't mind the heat but for us, unaccustomed to 90+ degrees, we really wished they would always stop in the shade!
2. Have bike tools. Chain oil, chain tool, master links. My husband had inquired ahead to ensure they would be able to support what our tandem might need but they didn't even have chain oil or silicone lube (which they purchased for us along the road).
3.For safety purposes alone, the drivers and guide should be able to exchange GPS locations. One time we waited a good 15+ minutes while the guide tried to communicate to the driver where he should meet up with us. Once we had to briefly retrace steps because the driver was in a different place.

I hope you find this helpful. Overall the trip met my desire to get to know, if only too briefly, post-American War Vietnam; to visit the sites known so well to Americans of my generation, enjoy some fabulous bike riding and be immersed in an entirely different culture. I am very glad we made the trip.

Thank you,
Rebecca Hutchinson

Hi Ms Ly,
Chuc mung Nam moi ! 😁

Thanks very much for the New Years email. We are having a fantastic time. We are really enjoying the cycling and the scenery. 

The service we have received so far has also been exceptional! Everyone has been very helpful, friendly and willing to help. We have felt very comfortable everywhere we have stayed. 

In particular Sarane has been fantastic - a really great tour leader! He has always kept us informed and worked hard to accomodate everyone’s needs. Chan has also been a great help driving and very patient. 

We only have a couple of days to go now, we head off to Hue tomorrow. It will be sad to say goodbye to everyone but we have had a really great time.

Thanks for your help organising. 

Justin and Mia 

Lizzie: “Hello, I’m from Australia and I am here with my husband and we are doing an 11 day biking tour from Ho Chi Minh City to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. We have had five wonderful days cycling with our wonderful guide, Tien, and it has been a great experience. We have enjoyed it immensely. Lots of local villages we visited enjoying the food, some off road cycling, cycling through the paddy fields, small villages, it’s been a great experience. For anyone who wants to get off the tourist track and really immerse themselves in the Vietnamese culture.”

Michael: “Hello, I’m Michael, I’m 60 years old and I come from Byron Bay in Australia. I’m here with Lizzie and we are enjoying the cycling trip. It’s very interesting, it’s a very good way to get close to the people and experience their everyday culture. We started off in the Mekong Delta, close to the sea and at a homestay, the homestay was very good, the people are very friendly and they taught us some Vietnamese cooking and now we are heading towards Cambodia, getting close to the border. I’m reasonably fit for 60 years old and this cycling is ok for me. It’s mostly flat, there are some bridges and that’s the only places you have to cycle hard. I use clips on my pedals but I would recommend that you have them very loose if you do this cycling because you don’t know when you are going to get off. You experience everything, like the rice fields, a bit of jungle, a bit of Vietnamese fruit trees everywhere. The local people are so wonderful and so friendly and you see so many children on the road saying hello all the time. It’s a very nice place and it’s about the culture and we love it here. We’re going to Cambodia and we will see how it goes there.

Dear Ly,

I hope this email finds you well. Patrick and I arrived in Hoi An yesterday afternoon at the end of our 3 day cycling trip from Nha Trang. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. So and Mr Chin were amazing. Both were incredibly helpful, attentive and kind. It was obvious how much work So put into the trip. He was able to answer all my questions about things we saw (and I had a lot of questions!) and the roads he took us on were excellent— both well-paved but also through a wide variety of scenery. The restaurants we ate at were also great. A few were local favorites and I’m thrilled we got the chance to try them. The first day we told So we wanted him to order for us because we trusted him to pick out local specialties. I recently posted on Facebook pictures of all the food we ate and many of my friends are jealous. 

I’ll definitely post an excellent review of So, Mr Chin and you (I’ve really appreciated your quick responses to my emails) on TripAdvisor once I’m back to my computer. 

We’re now very much looking forward to our bike trip in the Mekong.

You and Vietnam bike tour came through on every level including our ground transportation hotels and bicycles and super great guides who are willing to work with us to make it a perfect vacation Carmell and I would like to thank you very much for your hard work and patience with us during creating where and what we were going to do. We do plan on returning again before Christmas next year for another holiday with you and your team.

Dear Ly, 

we had a wunderful tour through the Mekong delta. The driver was very good, super punctual and we would like to recommend him for further jobs. 

The bikes were really good and we are very satisfied. Just two little things could be improved. We had no bicycle stands. So at every stop (beaks or photo stops) we had to look for something we could lean the bikes against. And the repair package contained the wrong inner tubes. Luckily there was a repair shop not far away rom us when we needed it. 

Unfortunately I still have the air pump with me. What would you suggest to do with it? Should we send it to the shop with a courier or what would it cost if we pay for it?

Team in Cambodia were great too and they did good job looking after us.
Mostly all hotels you selected for us were good apart from Alicevilla as I had quite a lot of bites from bedbugs overnight.

Dear ms. Ly
We just want to inform you that we had a very nice tour with mr. Tien in the Mekong delta last week. The tour was well organized, with a lot of interesting places to see, small roads/paths with very little traffic and daily stages suitable for "normal trained" persons. The time we spent on the tour (three days, including the boat from Chau Doc to Phnom Penh), we think also was perfect for our travel. Probably will many tourist find two days on the bikes enough to explore the Mekong, and it is a good way to enter into Cambodja.
Thank you for your service and for making this tour possible for us!

Dear Ly,
Everything went as expected and Jackie worked Hard to keep us on schedule. We made it to the hotel by 6 PM, and then enjoyed a traditional meal in old town. He is extremely conscientious guide and pays close attention to safety, particularly in traffic. He has a wonderful personality for a guide, because he is patient and attentive. He did his best to answer all our questions and meet our needs, even when it meant going out at night after dinner to replace a phone charging cable.

We also appreciated our driver who found fresh fruit and delicious snacks and drove calmly in chaotic traffic. 

We would only like recommend that the driver and/ or guide have some additional training on 🚲 mechanics. 

Thank you for all of your help. We had a wonderful trip. I will definitely recommend your services to friends.

Subject: Feedback on tour 13 Jan - 27 Jan, 2018, HCMC to Hanoi
Hi Ly,

Berndt and I are not so good with Facebook and trip advisor stuff. We would prefer to write you an email with the feedback as some of our comments will be constructive criticisms for your business and we would not want that to go on to the public arena.

We have had a fantastic time for the 15 days and you set us up with all necessary info with friendly professionalism - thankyou.

We appreciated very much having a guide and driver the whole way. The cycling guides took us to places we would never have gone to on our own, and gave us opportunities to eat local village food we would never have dared tried - it was all an amazing experience. The overnight cruise to Halong Bay was a relaxing highlight after the cycling effort.

The guides and driver were always prompt with starting times. Their help setting up the bikes etc was really appreciated. Hein, our driver for most of the trip, was superb, as we gained insight into the driving habits of the locals! We felt totally safe under his care.

The guides on the whole were polite and caring. Austin, our first guide sometimes said we were going to do something, for example, see a coffee plantation, and then it didn't happen. This could have been a communication misunderstanding, but it was something I wanted to see. Sometimes we were told itineraries in the morning and then things happened differently. We understand our cycling ability and timing makes planning difficult, but sometimes the plans and timing were way out of kilter.

On that note, we were surprised at how much traveling in the van there was. No problem with this, but we wonder that maybe the travel info could have the Total Distance from A - B stated, and within that, the approximate cycling distances dependent on ability and conditions.

One comment about the last driver plus guide from the Hanoi hotel to the airport. We wondered if this guide was necessary? He seemed to have no interest in us (earplug in his ear, and a hoody over his head), and when we got to the airport he expected to take us to the check-in. We are perfectly capable of doing this ourselves (having already checked in on-line), so we wondered (after we felt obliged to pay him a tip), whether a guide needs to be there at all on the last day. The driver would have been enough.

It would also have been helpful for all guides to have an overall map that we could refer to each day to get our bearings.

One other suggestion for cyclists - to have a small towel handy in the van with a small bag with a change of clothes if you get wet. Sitting in a van for 2 hours drive in wet clothes is not much fun. (We were fine, as we did prepare for this)

Food wise, this was amazing but way too much. This may be the Vietnamese way, but we also don't want to see food wasted. It seemed on some days that we were getting two main large meals, one at lunchtime, and another in the evening.

If you would like any more specific feedback on any part of the tour, please ask.

We will highly recommend your company to others, especially if some of the written daily notes and driving times are updated.

Best wishes for more successful tours,
Christine Archer-Lockwood and Berndt Reiss

Thank you for the tour at the weekend it was great fun and the perfect way to see the countryside on a Saturday morning. Mr Sarane was excellent and I have just left a review on Tripadisor. He did take lots of photos and said he would send them but i haven't received anything yet. Can you check with him, I may have missed something though.

Dear Tran

I want to thank you for all the work you did setting up our cycling adventure. 
All of the guides were great, the bikes and drivers were excellent. The hotels 
were mostly superb (the Chau Pho in Chau Doc was less than superb but still ok for a night). We simply had a wonderful and memorable time.

My only feedback that you might consider in future is we found two emotionally charged tours, The Killing Fields and Prison 21 in one afternoon was too much. We passed on the second. 

Also the lunch we had at the Bopha Titanic Phnom Penh was simply the best meal on the trip.

I'll certainly be posting positive reviews on Trip Advisor in the coming days.

So thanks to everyone at Vietnam Bike Tours

On behalf of the whole family I would like to pass our sincere appreciation of all your efforts before and during our holiday. The planning and communication from your side has been excellent. This has been such an important factor for us to allow us to fully relax and enjoy. Thank you so much for that.

You organised two great guides - both Tien for the first 11 days and then Zang (Giang) in Hanoi. Very likable personalities that took very good care of us, were flexible, knowledgable and fun company. 

The driver for the first 11 days, Ngia (I may have spelt his name wrong) was outstanding. He is a very, very safe driver and he is really service-minded. Make sure to pass our thank you and hugs to him and take good care of him.

Thanks for everything - and we hope to be back again some day. All the best to you and the company.

We had very good drivers, excellent bikes and safety helmets and exactly the trip we wanted. Phuc”s guiding was superb : everything we wanted was catered for and in many cases organised in advance of us. He was very safety conscious and was extremely good company.

I would like to thank all of you and hope you will continue to prosper.

With kindest regards, Robert Webb.
I'd like to let you know how very much Dan and I enjoyed our cycling trip 
on November 24-25 with Thach SaRane as our guide and Khai as our driver. Both were very helpful and made the tour fun. Our driver did an excellent job of getting us and our belongings to and from the homestay - we felt totally safe despite heavy traffic. 
Our guide SaRane was helpful and knowledgeable, sharing his insights about the areas we rode through and looking after everything we needed. He was a delight to share the days with. He was most concerned that we have a good experience and was worried that the heavy rains would spoil it - but that was all part of the trip and the fun. 
Thank you again for your part in putting the trip together for us. 

Best wishes

Hi Tran Thanh

We had a fantastic time on our 5 day cycling holiday, greatly helped by the good organisation, and by our guide TIger, who was superb in providing us with lots of information and leading us to some very interesting locations. The hotels were all of a good standard and we appreciated the drink stops etc. and the support from our driver Kim, making it a very enjoyable experience.

We will definitely recommend your cycling tour to any of our friends coming to Vietnam.

Kind regards

Dear Quang,

Sorry it took me so long to write to you. I was sick for 2 weeks after our return to Germany and things have been a little crazy!

Our bike tour with you was a definite highlight of our trip. We really enjoyed it and appreciated all the special things we experienced with you (especially the singing!) We did just the right amount of cycling – challenging for me, but doable. And I was proud that I didn’t have to take a ride in the van! The roads were off the beaten path and it was wonderful not only seeing so many different things and also learning about them from you. The restaurants you picked for us were great and we had nice stops along the way. The picnic we did for lunch on the third day was really fun.

There is only one thing that I wondered about – we had originally booked a hotel outside of Cat Tien National Park for the first night. Then Vietnam Bike Tours wrote to me to say that because of flooding, it would not be possible to do the night drive to see the animals from outside the park. We would therefore have to book the lodge inside the park for 80 USD more. However, when we got there, everything was completely dry and it seems that there hadn’t been any major rain for weeks. So this did not make sense to me. Maybe you can pass that on to the management.

Thank you so much for a wonderful bike tour (also our thanks to Tuan, the driver). I’ll also write a recommendation on Trip Advisor. Maybe we’ll see each other again some day!

Best wishes,

Caroline and Wolfram

Hello Tran,
Thank you so much for organising our bike tour with Quang. He was an outstanding guide and we were very happy to have him as our guide. Our bus driver Fop was very good also and we were well looked after by both of them. The bike ride was fabulous and we loved meeting a lot of the local people and riding through their villages. It was a fabulous experience for my husband and I. We were very happy also with the accommodation each night, first at the Mekong River Resort and then the Victoria Resort. They were exceptional and very pleasant after a day riding the bikes. The bikes also were of a great standard. Thank you also for arranging to collect us from the Airport after we missed our connecting flight due to delay, that definitely made things easier. Would you please send me a receipt for the USD $35 for the airport pickup. I may be able to claim this on insurance. 
Thank you again and I will definitely recommend your company and also Quang, our guide and Fop, driver.
I will do a comment on trip advisor soon.
Thank you

Dear Ms Kim and Huy,
I just wanted to thank you both for putting together such a great trip to 
Viet Nam for us. We all felt we had a thorough insight into your country, 
culture, people, history, scenery, food and general way of life. And 
we got some exercise to boot! Your arrangements were all first class 
and the hotels were far better than we expected.
But, maybe the most valuable part of our itinerary was having Phuc Le as our guide. From meeting us at the airport in Saigon to dropping us off at the airport in Hanoi he took absolutely great care of us. He quickly and accurately adapted the itinerary to our group and took a personal interest in and became a friend of each of us. He was always prompt, told great and insightful stories and filled our days completely with just the right amount of activity. And let me add that he is quite the witty fellow as well. It was a sad moment when we had to say good-bye to him.
Thanks again for everything. We will highly recommend your company and Phuc to everyone we can. I am not on Facebook and do not have an email address for Phuc, so would you please forward this message to him.

Hello Ly,

How are you?

We have just returned from our 4 day cycling tour of the Mekong Delta with Tien as our guide. We had a wonderful time and we both agree it is the best way to see your terrific country. We thought the tour was very well organised and the destinations were varied and unique to any other experience we've had in Vietnam. We loved the accommodation, particularly our first night in the home stay. It was delightful.

Our driver and guide (Tien). Our driver was so pleasant, always welcoming us with a smile and always on time. And Tien accommodated our needs with ease. He confidently answered our questions about the many fruits, vegetables and the way of life of the Vietnamese people. We also enjoyed getting to know him personally (we look forward to his baby pics on Facebook soon haha).

We met up with another 4 day Mekong tour from Vietnam Bike Tours along the way, led by Jacki (not sure of the spelling). It would have been good to have toured alongside these people to provide more company and fun getting to know others.

A few points for your information. We were overwhelmed by the amount of food. So nice and such wonderful food but we think there could be less so not as much goes to waste, but maybe that's just because we only eat small amounts. We are small people.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and look forward to giving you a good review on trip advisor. Thank-you too Ly for your help in organising our trip.

From Lucy.

Wanted to let you know that we had a good day cycling and really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for organising the tour. Our guide was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. The route was also a nice leisure ride. 

Hope to get the opportunity to visit Vietnam again soon, and perhaps plan for a longer and more adventurous ride!

Hi Kim,

We are back home after a fantastic first cycling trip to Vietnam. Needless 
to add, this will not be the last!

Thank you for organizing the bookings, visa & all other arrangements efficiently. 
We had a lovely experience cycling through the SaPa mountains. 
Ly Lao San made our trip enjoyable with his extensive cycling experience in the mountains, knowledge of the area and Vietnamese life in general.
Tuan gave us a smooth ride in the van when the outside conditions became too cold to handle. All in all, I must compliment you for putting together an
extremely friendly team on the ground all through our trip.

Back in Hanoi there was a small confusion regarding the Hotel we were booked in on 18 Dec. We found it wasn't in Hotel Imperial after we drove up 
there but in Hotel Tirant. However, the stay at Hotel Tirant was indeed very pleasant.

Thanks once again, we definitely hope to return to Vietnam for another cycling tour with you at the earliest opportunity.

We are on our way home to a cold London and we both wanted to thank you for organising such a successful first visit to Vietnam. Let's hope there will be many more! In fact, we are already talking about bringing all of our 4 children back this time next year for a brief visit.

After such a frantic few days with Tiger we have spent a very relaxing break in Phu Quoc where we have had time to contemplate everything. There is very little that we would have changed so you really know what you are talking about! Perhaps the Cat Tien Park visit was not the highlight (the lodge itself seemed rather neglected) but the bike ride there and after we left the park was wonderful. Tiger, who was professionalism personified and extremely knowledgeable, staggered us with his knowledge of Vietnam, including the history and the agriculture. We also appreciate Hein's calmness and would love to have him drive for us again.

We know you are due to have a new arrival imminently and we wanted to add our good wishes and hope that all goes well.

Many, many thanks once again for all your marvellous organisation that went absolutely perfectly.

I wanted to follow up with a note about our trip to the Mekong....thanks so much for changing things around for us and apologies for the confusion. You did a great job accommodating us.

Quang was simply fantastic!!! 

He went out of his way to make sure that we were happy with our trip. He did a great job of explaining where we were, how the locals lived (which is why we wanted to go on a trip like this), and introducing us to life in the delta. He continually made sure the bikes fit and nothing was broken and that we comfortable and not too rushed.  

We had many many questions about Vietnamese history and culture and he did a great job answering in English (not easy). We frequently engaged with locals and he is obviously well regarded and liked. Quite simply, HE made our trip fantastic and and we hope to plan something again.

Thanks again and special hello and good bye to Quang from his two American women friends...we had a great time!

Dear Tien

We have spent the last few days assembling some of our photos from our cycle trip in the Mekong, including the great photos you supplied us!

It was such a wonderful trip! Thank you so much for guiding us so knowledgeably, and for being prepared to adapt where we went and what we did to our family needs. We felt very well looked after by you and our driver, and we loved the parts of the countryside and sights that you took us to.

We really enjoyed the food at the local restaurants you took us to, and the home stays.

We really liked how much you knew about your country and the places we went, it made the whole experience very rich and rewarding, and it certainly had a big impression on our children who got to see people living very differently to how they do in New Zealand with its much cooler climate, and how your country operates and its history.

We will be recommending your company to our friends, and if we return to Vietnam for more cycling in the future we will be getting in touch!

Thank you so much

We both had a great time on the bike tour. The 50 km were a bit harsh due to the heat and humidity, I think it was over 35 degrees and 90% humidity, but the sites were wonderful and the guide was great.

One thing I really liked (and I’ve done this a lot) is that our guide was the one that picked us up at the airport, took us on the trip the next day, and got us to the airport on the third day. The continuity was very nice.

Next question;

Can we do the same thing for Ho Chi Minh on Sept 20th?

Hello Ly,

Good to hear from you! And congratulations on the coming new family member! Hope all is well.

I was meant to write to you about my experience of the trip and give some feedback, but was very busy with work since I got back. I had a few free days in Saigon after the ride, but was tied up with other plans with family. I also was planning to visit your office to meet you, but did not have the opportunity either.

First, I really like and appreciate Van Anh and Hien, the person who was driving the support van. They've done everything to ensure my safety, the trip is enjoyable and were great companions throughout the trip. I learned so much more about Vietnam from them, even though I sort of growing up in the country. I never once felt unsafe during the whole trip. Van Anh is an impressive person and cyclist, I would love to ride with him again.

Here is my thought about the ride:

Except for the trail ride in Cat Tien National Park, a mountain bike is unnecessary. The rest of the ride was on paved road with some hills to climb, so a road bike is much more practical and enjoyable. A heavy mountain bike rides much slower, so increased time out on the road and restricted riding distance. And the hot summer weather could make the ride much less enjoyable for someone who was a cycling novice. My mountain bike fit me ok, except the handle bar was too wide so put a lot of stress on shoulder. I am also used to road bike, have not ridden a mountain bike for years. But I enjoyed the ride regardless, however will bring my road bike next time and only use your mountain bike for the trail ride. With a road bike, we perhaps can ride more if weather permits.

The trail ride could be a bit longer, to 40-60km. I would not mind spending a day riding the trail then rest and continue road riding the next day. I am still kicking myself for forgetting to mount my GoPro camera on the bike for the trail ride. When we were riding, a large monkey ran across the trail right in front of us! That would be an image that I will show off and talk about for years to come!

A note to the tour guide: remind everyone before the ride to set up their video camera on the bike if they have it. They may capture this kind of stunning, unforgettable images.

I guess a majority of your clients are interested in travel tours with bike riding as secondary. But I recommend Vietnam Bike Tours to organize tours that are designed for cyclists and routes with different distance options. A seasoned cyclist would not be interested in only short rides and will look elsewhere for “real” cycling tours. I personally prefer bike tours that are designed more for cyclists, those that involve at least 60-100km a day of riding. There are many cyclists, both Vietnamese and American, in the US who would love to go on this kind of rides and willing to pay for one.

I learned from Facebook that there are many cyclists in Vietnam who are doing just this, self-supported.

Why don’t you plan one and see if there is any interest? Also make sure the ride is in the time of year that the weather is relatively nice, not so hot and humid? :-). Such as in Spring?.

As for next year Saigon-Hoi An ride in March, I of course would love to go on this tour, now that I know what to expect. Two other friends of mine are also interested in the ride. A possible option is if the ride ends at Hoi An, the three of us could extend it to Hue afterward. Please send me the details when you have them (how many people signed up already, route plan and cost, when do I need to sign up).

Last, thanks so much Ly, for setting this up for me! I really enjoyed the ride and will definitely join Vietnam Bike Tours on another future ride.

Best Regards,
Hai, USA

especially Ms Ly for organizing the tour, Mr Nyugen for being 
a terrific guide, Ms Phuong for documenting the trip and of course the driver for always being available (Sorry, I can't remember his name). We really enjoyed the bike ride from Hue to Hoi An. Everything was very well organized. Mr Nyugen was the best and most knowledgeable guide we had during our two-week stay in Vietnam. I would love to do another bike tour, especially in the south since I've heard so many nice things about the Mekong Delta. 

My only recommendation is that although the Merila Hotel in Danang was very nice; it was far from the centre of town. We would have preferred being downtown (i.e., near the beach walkway) so that we could have enjoyed the evening there rather than at the hotel.

Once again, thank you very much.

Dear Ngo Trong Huy
We enjoyed the Cycling Tour with Vietnam Bike Tour a lot. We had the possibility

The mix of sport and culture was perfect. 
There are some points where you can improve. Sometimes the guide put food in 
our plate which we didn't want to eat. I think each guest should decide by himself
 what he want to taste. Also one hotel wasn't very nice. The bathroom was completly

Vietnam/Cambodia Bike Tour 25-31 January 2015
Our overall experience with Vietnam Bike Tours is ★★★★★
From the first e-mail contact with Mrs. Kim Anh, we experienced professional guidance in choosing what, when and how we wanted this adventure. Every step of the way was efficient, easy and in the end a real joy.The choice of hotels and restaurants was varied and more than acceptable. The final hotel in Angkor Wat was a genius stroke…a cut above our standard hotels, it was just what we needed at the end of our 11-day trip.Our only criticism is that the first bicycle for the female in our duo was simply too big. It was new, the seat adjustment was as good as it could be, but it was still too large as getting on and off the bike was always a hassle. She adjusted as well as possible, but were this not a problem, the trip would have been perfect.This problem could be solved by including a smaller model in the inventory of bikes.
Our Vietnam guide for our January 25-31st bicycle trip through Vietnam, Mr. Tien Truong, was professional, personable, knowledgeable and caring. From the first encounter with us at the airport until our leaving at Chau Doc, he was a delight and made us comfortable. His handling of most every detail, from mid-morning snacks to hotel reservations/placement was outstanding. He was patient in finding a solution to a medical problem (which was eventually solved by his own home remedy), concerned about the quality of our food and drink, and tolerant and informative with our many questions. We have made a new friend and will recommend both Tien and the company to others. It was truly a great experience for us. Ruth Higgins

Hello Ms. Ly,
Don and I can’t begin to express how wonderful our experience was. The reviews will reflect that. I also offer to be available should any potential customer wish to contact me for questions or further information. I know that was helpful to me when I was planning our trip.
All of the guides were incredible but we were particular fond of Mr. Tien and Mr. Haun. Having the same guide for the entire Vietnam experience seemed to work better for us. While the guides in Cambodia were good, the fact that we had so many different ones wasn’t preferable. They all did fine but the continuity seemed stronger in Vietnam. I assume this couldn’t be avoided. No complaints; just something of a personal preference.
Mr. Tien is really quite exceptional. You should know that. He quickly understood our needs and seemed to provide us with a customized version of the trip. Not seeing other tourists, taking new routes to accommodate the road construction, choosing fruits that he knew we preferred and even wiping off the chopsticks with fresh limes before we used them… all attention to detail that was above and beyond our expectations. 
He also photographed our riding and sent us dozens of photos. It was so nice to have photos of both of us together. He is a treasure and an asset to your company. 
Thanks again for this amazing vacation. I am telling everyone I know about it and recommending it to all adventure seekers.

Dear Mr Ngo
We had a wonderful bike tour with Tien Feb 26 - March 1. He was an exceptional guide, very responsive to our needs and provided a very personal approach in engaging a number of the local people through the four days. These exchanges really enhanced our experience. We feel we better understand and appreciate Vietnam and her people.

We were pleased with the accommodation, especially the food at our first home stay, and the bikes and the van support.
As an aside, we did find the food portions very much more than we are used to. Although it is included in your notes, we regret we did not appreciate the need for smaller luggage until we were on the journey. Perhaps a note included with your booking emails will help other travellers realize that small is better.

I just wanted to give a little feedback on the 3 day cycling tour we went on last weekend. The trip was wonderful and our guide, Mr. Gia (Jacky), was great. He showed up early to pick us up and was ready to go every morning well before we were done with breakfast. He was always upbeat and energetic as well as friendly and talkative with locals. Jacky made it clear that the schedule was flexible and was able to accommodate our requests. I really appreciated his guidance on this trip.

One suggestion I'd like to make is the addition of a small saddle bag or frame bag to the bicycles. Just something big enough to fit a mobile phone and wallet would be useful.

For your information, my friend, Jane Pek, booked the trip.

To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to take this opportunity to let your company know that we were very pleased with our tour and our guide Mr Kim, who took us on a 4 day 3 night tour of the Mekong at the beginning of January.

 We found him to be very knowledgeable of the area and much of the route that we took was lovely. We found that he listened to our needs after encouraging us to reach our potential. He was a happy and interesting guide who was interested in taking us on an informative tour. 

Both of us will have recommend Mr Kim as a guide along with your tour company. We enjoyed the home stays that we stayed in during our tour and found the people that we dealt with along the way very welcoming. The tour was more diverse than we expected and we were very pleased with the tour and what we did and saw. We have both spoken highly and recommended our tour to others and have referred to it as one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam.

If you have any questions please email me.

Dear Ly,
We have come back from our fun adventure bike tour in the Mekong Delta last week led by bike guide Mr. Hai. I would just like to let you know that Mr. Hai was absolutely fabulous with us. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, vegetation, fruits, people, customs, and of course knew all the back roads like his inside pocket! He was very friendly, patient, and accommodating to our wishes (especially stopping and taking hundreds of pictures). He was/is a fantastic bike tour leader and I will recommend him to anyone who asks. I only have very high praise for his professionalism and skills as a bike tour leader.

Thank you for our wonderful time in the Mekong Delta with Mr. Hai and Vietnam Bike Tours.
Regards, Elisabeth Singh
