After a bit of a false-start we had a great trip with the excellent driver Mr. Phu and guide Mr. Giang. My traveling partner and I were not comfortable with our first guide but the company were very responsive and made the trip work for us. Mr Giang was affable, patient, and very knowledgeable. We are not athletes but were game for the trip and Mr Giang found the best routes, added some sight seeing, took us through beautiful farms, jungles, mountains, and rural areas on our 6 day bike ride to Hoi An. My travel companion has food allergies which were accommodated without censure. There were lots of snacks, bottled water, cool cloths when we stopped provided by the ever cheerful Mr. Phu. Highly recommend this outfit for any of their activities - I know they'll work with you to make the trip what you want.

Family of 4. Had a lovely 40k ride to My Son. Thoroughly enjoyable and a great experience. Tinh (Ting Ting) and ‘My’ were excellent guides and very knowledgeable. They looked after us all but were exceptional with my youngest, very patient and attentive. Thanks guys. Took around 4 hours in the saddle, (sore bums quite possible ;-). En-route we passed though lots of villages with regular stops for info. We visited an authentic market (people are wonderful) had a welcome stop for lunch and then arrived at My Son for an interesting history lesson before driving back for hotel drop off. We were lucky to have a small group and super company added to a very pleasurable day! Highly recommended.

I thought the tour was good but not great. The ride to My Son took us through the countryside mainly riding on concrete roads and some highway. We were a group of 4 plus guide. The bikes were reasonable mountain (Giant and Trek) hard tail bikes but could use a bit more maintenance as the gears did not always shift well. The seats were quite hard and there was only 1 padded cover available between the 4 of us as they said they were all out on another tour. Helmets though adjustable lacked sufficient padding. As for the tour itself the route was excellent as we passed through interesting villages and countryside but the pace set made it hard to stop for photos or have the time to appreciate what we were seeing. We all mentioned we would have taken more photos but felt that would hold things up especially after our guide said we were a bit of a slow group. As avid riders we felt the distance was completely doable just a tad hurried. It was nice to stop at a local market and look and try some different fruits. Lunch was nice but was served after we had already ridden for almost five hours. This could have been alleviated with a snack break along the route. Our guide, Ting?, was nice and friendly but even though he had been guiding tours for 12 years did not know more then basic info about-face the Champa civilisation and the My Son ruins. Overall we enjoyed our day and the ride but would recommend that you bring a bike chamois and small day pack to carry essentials like extra water, sunscreen and a hat for when you are not riding. We met the other bike tours that ride to the ruins and we all eat at the same restaurant and Phat tires bikes are the better Mtn bikes. Just felt like we didn't get full value for the cost $65 US per person. With a few minor tweaks this could easily be an excellent tour.

This trip was wonderful!! Tinh & My were our guides and managed to get us all safely though the road traffic! A feat in itself, if you've ever been to Vietnam, you'll know what I mean!! We then cycled through paddy fields, over narrow bridges and through villages to get to My Son (pronounced Mee Sun, not my son, your son our anyone else's son!!). Tinh was very knowledgeable about the area and the My Son ruins. I learned a lot about the kings of the area and that modern day architecture doesn't stand up to what they were doing 1400 years ago!!! We also saw the bomb craters left from the Vietnam War, no idea how the citizens survived those, but they did with their inbuilt resilience. Such lovely people who shout "Hello" to you from their homes that we cycled past. On the downside, the bikes aren't brilliant, so make sure you pack some bike knicks or some sort of padding, 43km isn't that far, but you may end up with a numb bum!!! Thanks to Tinh & My (& the English family we met on the trip). Very enjoyable day!!

If you do no other gentle exercise in vietnam do this. A gentle 40km cycle through countryside and villages on quiet roads and concrete paths. Then you get to My Son which is stunning. Speed of the slowest so no pressure, this is an experience not a bike training ride! Our guide Kae (forgive spelling) was excellent through the ride and at My Son. Food and drink stops excellent, this is your chance to get into the real Vietnam.
