I can't say enough about how wonderful this bicycle tour by Aline was, in all aspects from start to finish. Well prepared with top-quality bikes, helmets and gloves all in excellent condition. And always made sure that we stayed hydrated by stopped regularly for water/drinks. Aline was very knowledgeable about Vientianne and the Lao people in general, and very eager to share that with excitement. She was able to answer pretty much every question which we threw at her, and gave us wonderful insight into the people and how they live. She took us to all the right places, and off the beaten track into the villages and neighborhoods rather than just all of the "touristy" places. We were also very fortunate to have a few unexpected but very special encounters with the Lao people which gave us a wonderful inside look at their culture and traditions. Such warm and welcoming people who extended the real privilege of inviting us in to share their lives and experiences with us. We loved every aspect of our Vientianne ByCylce tour and would highly recommend it to everyone. Aline was an extremely courteous host and very knowledgeable host, it was one of the highlights of our trip to Laos!!
