“Vietnam Beach Bicycle Backroads Tour 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

It was an absolute privilege to be invited on Wide Eyed Tour's 'Maiden Voyage' of their Beach Bicycle Backroads Tour. Tracey, Mike and Travis run a fantastic tour that is the perfect mix of professionalism, relaxed friendliness and good old fashion fun. A constant source of local knowledge and interesting facts ensured that at no time did you feel alienated or lost. Riding a bicycle was the perfect way to experience Vietnam. It gave the best opportunity to access some more remote areas, at a pace that made it easy to absorb all the wonders of this amazing country. The intensity of the riding element was completely up the the individual. Bus support meant that cold drinks and food was readily available and also gave you the option of riding part or all of the daily distances. Part of the trip incorporated a bicycle donation to a group of underprivileged kids. Each person on the tour personally donated a bicycle to a child, in the knowledge that it would dramatically improve their day to day lives. A BIG 'feel good' moment .If you love cycling, this trip should most definitely be on your 'to do list'! In no way will you be disappointed. For a full review on this trip look out for the November December issue of Bicycling Australia Magazine. (on sale 26th October)

“Excellent service - most enjoyable tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

We booked a 10 day tour with Wide Eyed Tours. We were not disappointed.

We ourselves were recommended this tour by others in our area who had used this firm.

The service and attention to detail were impecable. Our Tour Guides were very attentive to our needs, were very well informed and gave us very personalised attention - in short, they were professionals who took pride in their job and left us with very memorable and pleasant impressions of Vietnam.

We intend to use their services again when other members of our family, we hope, can accompany us back to Vietnam to do more exploring.

We most definitely recommend Wide Eyed Tours to anyone visiting Vietnam looking for quality and value.

“Best motorbike tour ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

Myself and three mates from Oz' are just back from 7 day motorbike tour and 2 days on Halong Bay, all booked through Wide Eyed Tours.
Their service was exemplary - nothing was too much trouble. When a fifth member of our group had to back out at last minute they gave is money back (although they were not obliged to).
The base hotel (Hanoi Club) is first rate. The other hotels were always the best available in town.
The food was always delicious, although you wouldn't want to go if you did not have an adventurous palate).
The bikes (Honda 250's) were a little tired, but did stop, start, and have reasonable tyres.
The scenery was mind blowing - it looks even better than in any photos you've seen.
The people were just so, so friendly, and the children were so neat, tidy and polite.
The cruise boat (Halong Jasmine) was superb - only two years old and must be nearly five star!
Would we go back to Vietnam, yes! Would we use Wide Eyed again, ABSO-BLOOMING-LIKELY :)

Booked through House of Travel in NZ with a custom itenerary. The staff were very helpful throughout our trip-and the emergency contact number was fantastic for sorting out minor problems. Especially enjoyed the motorcycle tour of Hue.
