“Exciting and great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Went Canyoning with Phat Tire Ventures today, and it was amazing. Although I'm weary of heights, I felt safe the entire time with our guides and found myself going around for a second time whenever we had the chance.
Really had a great time and I cannot say enough about the guides.
Thank you PTV

“Oh My Gosh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We signed up for a rappelling adventure with Phat Tire and we got way more than we ever expected. We are having a hard time describing our experience with them. No one would ever believe what we did as words can not describe the adventure, excitement, and adrenaline rush we experienced as we trekked thru the jungles jumping, sliding, rappelling, down and over rocks and cliffs, bobbing around in the water, walking along tree roots hanging onto the side of a rock cliff, rappelling down a waterfall and jumping down into the water when the rope ended!! I could go on and on! This was an excellent adventure, but not for the faint at heart. Highly recommend this one if you like excitement!

The mountain bike ride was great as well. We rode through minority villages, coffee bean plantations, rice fields, and saw dragon fruit growing along the way. Kids were going home from school carrying their books, kicking tin cans down the road, men were walking their goats and cows in the streets, there was a little bit of uphill on our bikes, but mostly it was downhill, flat and had some rollers. In both excursions, the guides were OUTSTANDING and very professional. The food was good,and transportation was good.
I would recommend any of their trips simply because the guys were so good at what they do, that they made it fun for us.
I look forward to another trip with Phat Tire!
THANKS

“Don't save up on safety”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went canyoning with Phat Tire and it was a great experience. The staff of the hotel we stayed in recommended this organisation because it is a safe one. There are plenty of organisations in Da Lat who offers the same activities, but are less capable of doing it (less safe, less experience, acitivity in big group to make it even more cheap).
All guides of this company are certified and very able to this sort of adventure sports. We had a great time! They ' re very patient in explaining what you have to do. They also explain it well in good english.
Phat Tire offers a good service, they are kind, they picked us up, we got a fabulous lunch, ...

“mountain biking fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Ngoc and Von, the two guides that accompanied us on a 25+km 'skid marks' ride were extremely helpful and friendly. We are 59 and 61 years old and both pretty fit and although we have had done a fair bit of on-road riding, this was our first experience at mountain biking. Both guys were patient and encouraging, and the bikes were excellent. The views were extraordinary, through forests and farm lands, and lunch was simple but appetising.
At the end of 3 - 4 hours we were tired but very happy.

“Flexible, and patient - a good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The staff at Phat Tire exactly met our needs - a 1 day trip that included cycling and kayaking. They did not have the exact trip we wanted, so they modified their trips to suit what we wanted. After cycling for about an hour to the lake, we then kayaked for an hour of so, had lunch, then cycled back into Dalat. A great experience for someone not so fit, and the guides were very patient with how slow I was.
Overall, a great trip, the lunch was fantastic.
The guides had excellent language skills for conversation regarding the specific journey, the means of transport etc. However, for broader conversation, their english was limited. However, I expect most people book this trip for the adventure, not for conversation.
