Best thing I did in Vietnam. We rode on quiet roads first over Hai Van pass through rainforest with great coastal views then a van transfer through the busy roads to the next section where we rode on narrow concrete paths past farming and fishing villages. Our guide Tin was friendly and knowledgeable. He could change a flat quickly too. It is a long ride so you need to be fit or a strong rider.

We have just completed a 5 day cycle from Hoi An to Nha Trang. Phat Tire exceeded our expectations on every step of the trip. Tao our cycle guide spoke excellent English and paced the ride incredibly well. Through out the trip he was informative and stopped regularly at just the right times.
The route kept us from main roads and was flat for a good part of the route as we ran along the coastal fringe. Our meals were in local restaurants and accommodation in cities not normally visited by tourists.
Small things like having cold towels to put on the back of our necks and explanations about the Buddhist culture and some of Vietnams recent history were really unexpected but great. Our guides cleaned and prepped our bikes every evening and were up at 5 at the market buying fresh fruit and rolls for the day. Another highlight was Choo our driver he was the safest driver we believe in Vietnam just incredible. It is the only time we have been truly comfortable being driven in Vietnam.
These guys are at the top of their game and they are if you book in advance willing to make changes to accommodation which we did.

Had an amazing day with this tour company. They were very professional and well
Organised. Bikes were in great condition and our guide 'Cung' was supportive and very knowledgeable. I completed the 'Holy Moly' trip and despite being a hot day our guide took the trip at our own pace and we had plenty of rest stops and photo stops. I really loved this trip and it was a highlight of my Vietnam trip. I really recommend this trip if you want something more physically demanding and less 'touristy'. Thanks Cung for a wonderful and memorable day.

Abseiling Marble Mountain was an amazing way to experience such an impressive place. My girlfriend was absolutely terrified and both guides where very supportive and helpful. With their help and support my girlfriend completed all 3. The gear that was used is world class and felt 110% safe and all times.

Had an awesome day with phat tyre Rock climbing tour. Two guides picked up our family of 4 and one other tourist for the day. We created quite attraction for all the other visitors to marble mountain to watch as we were climbing right beside the path in 3 different spots. Viet was our main guide and he gave us lots of history and info and a quick cave tour as well. Both guides were completely reassuring with their technique and safety procedures. Our boys (10 and 12) are experienced climbers and topped all 6 climbs. I have hardly any climbing experience and only topped one and got another after a cheating rest but I was happy with that (and that was enough to have extremely sore forearms the next day!). Lunch was provided and was a very good standard. All in all it was a very memorable and unique experience we are very glad we did it . Thanks phat tyre. Wd love to do a mountain bike tour next time too and the abseiling looked fun and less effort!!
