Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Mr Hung, Pinky and the boys have done it again. And girls sorry!
Can't really add more to what has already been said, but if every travel company conducted themselves with the same proffesionalism and attitude there would be a lot less whinging going on out there!

“Off the beaten path, Hanoi to Saigon, by Tim Hughes, UK”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Awaiting Chris McBride's arrival to provide me with info & discuss my plans I was told he was an "expert" here we go I thought!!
Well let me tell you now. Not only is Chris extremely knowledgable on biking throughout the whole of Vietnam, he is an absolute Gent & went out his way to answer any questions I had, sorted me out with a map & helped me plan out my route, giving me contacts for accommodation along the way (that he knows personally) sorted me out with a Vietnamese Sim card making sure my data was up & running so I had Gps (an absolute necessaty as far as im concerned) after which we had breakfast together & swaped numbers so we could keep in touch along the way. Chris being true to his word called me regularly to see how everything was going. Now how's that for personal service!?
As for the trip itself, guys do it, you'll see & experience things not in the guide book, and it will make your time in Vietnam a very personal one. But take my advice do it with Flamingo Travel. They also have a sister branch in HCMC with a great team ready to welcome you from your trip or gear you up to head north in the other direction.
5* outfit for sure!!

“Ride the Wave, baby”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

My girlfriend and I were interested in a 3 day, 2 night guided motorbike trip and Flamingo delivered beautifully. From the orientation on the bikes to allowing my girlfriend to ride on the back with the guide (I don't blame here, getting in and out of Hanoi is a bit like riding in a pinball machine), to taking us well off the beaten path, the experience was amazing.

Hue, our guide, was incredible. Trying to drive (dodge & weave) and follow a map would've been too much for us. Besides, Hue took us down mountain trails that were on no map giving us an opportunity to see some breathtaking scenery. Hue's personal story combined with his local knowledge and fun-loving nature (though always making safety a priority) won us over.

I'll definitely be back to do another trip, this time on a larger CC bike. That said, the 110 cc Honda Waves we rode were more than up to the task at hand.

“The place to go for a bike tour...”
Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

Incredibly friendly staff, who were super helpful. We wanted a custom trip, sans guide, and they mapped out the whole 10 days for us. Had an incredible time touring N.Vietnam. Bike was reliable, plus they give a bunch of the most common spares and tools.

Check this place out if you are considering any sort of motorbike trip through Vietnam. Prices were very reasonable.

“Unforgettable experience”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Fantastic tour, with the team from Flamingo. My Aussie friends and i had a terrific day out with the guys, taken off the beaten track. We wanted to go out of the comfort zone. Shared lunch & had a few beers . I would highly recommend this company , great value for money, made ever lasting friendships. A special thank you goes out to Hue , whose riding skills are exceptional. Who was always concerned that i was ok and hanging on!!! So glad that they were recommened to us, I wasn't real keen on bikes but after spending the day with Hue, I'm now hooked and will be back for a longer and new adventure. And hi to Chris who is also one of the crew.
Cheers guys!
