I chose Pine Track Adventures based on its reviews on TripAdvisor and the day exceeded my expectations.

I elected the canyoning trip, which is set in an attractive area not far out of Da Lat. Dinh, Tang, Roy and the rest of the crew were excellent - professional, safety conscious and with a keen sense of fun. They made sure we were all confident with our techniques before we hit the water, and were always within eye shot as we descended, such that we could just enjoy the experience. Which is more than could be said for another company I witnessed in action, which had one customer yelling 'help' as she was freaking out on her descent of a waterfall.

I was invited to have a second go of two of the abseils, which was a real bonus. Making the 10 metre or so jump (which required a run-up) into the water below was a buzz. Lunch was both plentiful and tasty (baguettes with lots of fillings, fruit etc).

The unexpected aspect of the day was the invitation to 'drinks' at the end of the day. This turned out to be a very sociable occasion with the team and fellow customers involving a tasty BBQ and plenty of beer. A great way to finish the day.

Highly recommended.

Xin Chao Matt,
Great to hear that you really enjoyed the canyoning day with us. And we highly appreciate your exellent review here. I always pass out our philosophy to the guides that the true quality our clients receive comes even after the tour. The best way to experience a country is to mingle with the locals and our guides are the ambassadors you can trust. Hope you'll enjoy your time further north as much as here with us.
All the best,

Roughly a 5/6 hour trip canyoning with these guys was fab. Our two guys Ting and Roy were great. The lunch included was also delicious. Id recommend a trip with these guys for sure.

Signed up for canyoning and a bike-and-raft to nhatrang activity with pinetrack adventures. The seemingly dangerous activities were made safe with these expert from pinetrack adventures who know their routes and tracks extremely well! Canyoning is a must try, especially for beginners who would like that extra boost of thrill, and the bike-and-raft to nhatrang, yes do it if you have the time! The 30km downhill through the clouds, on the mountainbike, would certainly put a adrenaline-pumped smile on your face!

If you are lucky, these guys may show you around the city too:) I definitely choose pinetrack adventures again and recommend them to anyone who would like to experience such outdoor adventures in dalat!!

So glad we picked Pine Track Adventures for both our day canyoning and our day mountain biking. Our guides Tim and Roy were excellent. TIm especially speaks amazing English and is very well trained for canyoning. We witnessed some very unsafe practices on the river and were very grateful we had chosen Tim and Pine Track Adventures. They also kindly tailored a mountain bike trip to suit us which consisted of a half day off road and then second half on road to Mui Ne. Tim was a great tour guide telling us about all the places we passed and answering all our many questions about Vietnamese life. And the lunch provided was a feast!

These two trips were some of the best $$ we've ever spent. Highly recommend the trips and Pine Track

We stumbled upon Pine Track almost by accident on our most recent visit to Dalat. We left booking any activities until the morning we wanted to go so we went down to the office bright and early to sign up for a trek initially. Although they had no other bookings for the particular one we wanted to do they were happy to get a guide in for us. As we were chatting we found out there was a group going canyoning already so they suggested we do that activity instead if we were interested (which we were).
We weren't prepared to go canyoning so one of the guides, Thang, took us through town to a place we could buy some inexpensive shoes suitable for the activities. The canyoning was a great days worth of a variety of things all which could be suited to beginners and people more experienced. All the guides were great teachers for those who hadn't abseiled before. They were all proficient in setting up the ropes using fairly new harnesses and we also had safety ropes. Just make sure you're ready to spend most of the day in the water, clothes and shoes that will definitely get wet and maybe use an older pair of socks!
We had such a good day we decided to do another activity through pine track as well - doing the Silk and Elephant mountain biking with Thang as our guide. They sized us up for bikes and helmets the day before and made sure the bikes were working properly before we left. The ride was 33kms total - biking our way out of the city and onto some off road paths (some quite bumpy but no issues if you're cautious, and only a couple of steep hills) through one of the oldest villages in Dalat and through some coffee plantations. Then back onto a sealed road and to a cricket farm - where you can taste if you like, a weasel coffee farm and then to elephant falls and a silk factory after a lunch stop. Thang was very accommodating and is happy to do the tour at your pace stopping for rests where necessary. He also has excellent first aid skills as we discovered as my friend came of her bike on what was possibly the easiest part of the ride!
After our experiences with Pine Track we would recommend them to anyone considering a trip to Dalat or wanting to do something out of the ordinary. All the guides we met had great English, were super friendly and very safe to travel with!
