Owner description: Uncle Toms is a dirt bike tour operator offering tours and riding tuition (for total beginners) in the Vang Vieng region of Laos PDR. All bikes are under one year old, 125cc four stroke trail bikes. British operator. The bikes can carry two people. Always best to book in advance due to limited places each day. Training is limited to two persons at one time and open to anyone over 5 feet 5 inches(165cm)on the full sized bikes,but we have one smaller bike for anyone who is a bit smaller. Due to the rapid changes recently in Vang Vieng town,we have moved location, now we are based in the amazing 'Blue Lagoon Resort' which is 20 kilometers south of Vang Vieng town, offering lakeside activities, jetski's, kite and windsurfing etc,on a lake which is 52 kilometers long.How to get here: Situated 23kms South of Vang Vieng in the village of Ban Tha Heua & our entrance is opposite the gas station(only one in the village). please book in advance. Thank you.

“So much fun - highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

I booked this tour a few days ago after reading all the positive comments on this site and can now say that I completely agree with the other reviews! Tom is a great guy who makes you feel immediately at ease, my boyfriend and I had never ridden before and were a bit nervous but Tom talked us through everything and didn't let us on the road until we were fully ready which we really appreciated. I was a bit rubbish and took ages to get it right but Tom was really encouraging and never rushed me - and I got there in the end! The bike ride itself was so much fun and definitely the highlight of our trip so far, would definitely recommend this tour!

“Sore arms sore bum and I couldn't be happier.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Tom is one of those people you have immediate respect for as soon as you meet them. I was fortunate enough to have previous experience on a bike which enable us to get on the road quickly and cover more ground then normal. Tom has a lot of passion for the town and it's people which is great to see first hand and be a part of it.

“Great Trip! Great Sights! Great Man!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Absolutely brilliant trip! My girlfriend got taught while I went and had some fun on the trails. She is very small but he adjusted the bike for her and taught her to ride. She was up and going in no time thanks to Tom. She decided to go on the back so we could do a more difficult route and Tom charged nothing for the training! Was a brilliant morning and the sights were breathtaking. It's a must for anyone going through Vang Vieng! Tom is really friendly and takes you to great spots!
