“Great trek, great company”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We did a lot of trips around Vietnam and Phat Tire was our best experience (we later did another trip with them).
They were both professional, spoke English well, nice, and made sure we had a good time and got our money's worth.
We did the Tiger Trek and the Canyoning with them and enjoyed them both, they were exactly what we had been looking for.

“Dalat to Nha Trang on a bike”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

An excellent day out with Phat Tires as always, we left at about 7.30 from our hotel and were in Nha Trang by 4pm. We cycled from Dalat to Nha Trang (approx 70km). The first 40km is rolling terrain and if (like me) you find the hills a bit steep there is always a support vehicle waiting to pick you up and give you a lift.
Lovely picnic lunch by a waterfall near the top then 28km downhill all the way!
Very safe and professional service from Mr Minh (our guide) and Mr Bo (our driver), excellent quality equipment, lots of water and a good lunch!
I would highly recommend this to all!

“Exciting and great day out”
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!”
Reviewed October 4, 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”
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, ...
