“Fantastic Trip!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

I signed up for the Trek and Kayak trip. Nhat did an incredible job of accommodating us last minute, and he was a marvelous guide. It's evident that he and the company truly value a positive customer experience. We loved the trek, and were impressed with the picnic lunch. Best of all, Nhat taught us a card game at the end of the day! I'd highly recommend taking a tour with these guys.

“Lovely hike with a nice, friendly guy.”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We went for the "Hike and Kayak" with a guide called Biet (I might be spelling that wrong).

Biet was extremely friendly and patient. Often guides on some trips seem to be sick of their jobs and just rush ahead but Biet was always chatting and was greta company.

The trip itself was very nice. We hiked up a big hill, through the jungle, had a big lunch and went Kayaking. Our guide never tried to rush us and was very chilled.

Phat Tire seems to have a lot of friendly guys working there as we saw when we dropped by and had a beer with them.

Recommended!

“Fantastic experience, would love to do it again”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

We just finished the 70km Dalat to Jha Trang ride and could not be happier. Our guide Yang arrived promptly at our hotel to pick us up and we were on our bikes within an hour.

The bikes and helmets were in good condition - one of the bikes had squeaky front brakes but we swapped with our guide at his suggestion as soon as he noticed the issue.

Lunch was great - basically a big spread where you can assemble your own banh mi (as many as you'd like - we each wolfed down two since we were quite hungry), plus fresh fruit and plenty of water.

Views were spectacular. Our guide took many pictures of us and would borrow our cameras and ride ahead to get good action shots as we crossed the bridges and reached the finish. Afterwards was a short and comfy thirty minute drive to our hotel.

The ride is definitely challenging if you are not an experienced cyclist and the downhill sections can be scary but if you enjoy long bike rides I cannot recommend this enough. Definitely a great way to get from Dalat to Nha Trang!

“So good! The best of the lot!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We went canyoning today and two of our friends went mountain biking the day before. They also joined us on the canyoning. They had one of the best times they've had mountain biking and the canyoning was exceptional. We always felt safe and you know they knew what they were doing while being safe. I never once felt like I couldn't get through the course. One gal was feeling like she couldn't do it but made it all the way through and thanked the guides for being awesome and getting her through it. You can get in your head but they have your back and it is nothing but amazing. Afterward we came back and socialized with all of the guides and they are nothing but awesome. Yang was so professional but extremely friendly. Ling took us out to some local cuisine afterward and it really made our trip. I couldn't recommend them higher. We had a picnic after all of the adventure and it was so good!
