The whoe trip was thoroughly enjoyable and well organized. Our trip leader was a bastion of calmness and common sense, making sure thta everyone had everything they needed.

The group was of mixed abilities with everyone fully commitiing to the holiday. The cycle was long at the start but soon a rhythm was established. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Angkor Wat was the highlight of the trip for me

As someone passionate about ecology and keeping our planet clean of plastic and waste, I knew exactly which part of the world I was traveling to and was prepared to be shocked. However, this organization proved me wrong - the tour guides were not only extremely friendly and experienced in their field, we also saw them physically picking up any trash and making sure it was contained and brought to a nearby dumpster. I highly recommend their bike tours for people passionate about ecology.

I did the Saigon to Seam Reap tour. This is my opinion, if I were to do it again. I loved the company, and of course the company is the guide(s) as they are your gateway to the country.I would spend longer in the Mekong Delta/stay in Vietnam. The biking and landscape are better than in Cambodia., in my opinion. Cambodia was nice (especially Angor Wat/Seam Reap), but I found Vietnam much ore interesting.A special shout out/thanks to our Vietnam guide, Happiness. He was amazing. Same thing for the driver. The level of service you get in Vietnam is stunning. I was almost embarrassed. I never had to carry my back from the mini-bus to the room! The special trips and places the guides brought us to made the difference as well.Note that the time you are in Cambodia, you will have to change guides in Angor Wat as you need a special license to tour that site. (And Angor Wat is very busy).I would recommend Vietnam Bike tours to friends and family, and would return any time I get a chance.

This was one of the most amazing trips i've done so far! Amazing scenery, people and a great company to do it with. Thank you!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were so many! I loved the small villages we passed through that had such happy children wanting to say hello and high five. I thought the temples in Cambodia were awe inspiring. The home stay was fantastic! The entire trip was amazing!What did you think of your group leader?Are group leader was exactly what is required in a group of are size and willfulness. Authoritive when required, Caring and supportive when neccesary, Fun and amusing, but above all, very informative, social and instructive.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Enjoy the trip rather than thinking of the next destination. Its very easy to think about the next cycle stop and power through until all the cycling for the day is complete, with out actually enjoying the scenery, views, and place to its full extent. The holiday seems to go so quickly when you do this. Just slow down a little when passing through villages and gorgeous scenary and remember you can stop for photographs at anytime.
