REVIEWS

from our friends

We really enjoyed the Hue to Hoi An cycle trip. I found the company online, and they were quick to respond to my emails, and incredibly helpful. Our guide Tony was superb throughout the trip, giving us interesting information, cycling at just the right speed, making sure the trip was tailored to us in terms of the distance, and making sure we always had enough water :) Our driver Chot was also super smiley and helpful. The cycle routes were great, we got out into the countryside which was beautiful and cycling up the Hai Van pass gives you awesome views. Overall, I would highly recommend this trip.
