We had a great bike tour with Uncle Tom's Trail. I've never ridden a motorbike before and the only experience I had, were 3 rides with a semi-automatic scooter. Tom is a great teacher and explained in steps how to ride a real motorbike. Within 30 minutes I was ready to ride the cross motor and I felt so great. I never thought it was going to be so easy. Tom makes you feel at ease and confident. He really knows what he's talking about. Moreover he's a fun and charismatic guy to hang out with. We went for a beautiful ride on mountain roads around the lake and off-road through jungle. Some tracks I was surprised I could do since I didn't have any experience at all. It was exhilarating, exciting and challenging. I'm going for a motor license when I'm back home in Holland and I'm sure Tom's lessons will give me an advantage. My husband on the other hand got his license 9 years ago but hasn't ridden since. Tom gave him a bike, a few instructions and he was free to go. Once you know how to ride a motorbike apparently you never forget. Although Tom paid most attention to me because I had to learn how to ride and therefor we had to slow down sometimes on difficult and challenging paths, my husband had a great time too. The scenic and adventurous tour we made is also nice for experienced riders. Tom manages to mix teaching beginners and guiding more experienced riders so it's fun for everybody. If you have the time in Vang Vieng and you want to try riding a motorbike be sure to go to Uncle Tom's Trail. He's located 20 km outside of Vang Vieng at the Blue Lagoon Resort, a beautiful and relaxing place on the road to Vientiane. You can also book a bungalow at the resort. It's not expensive and the surroundings are breathtaking. By the way, if you know how to ride a bike (off-road) you can also talk to Tom about making a fun and scenic tour. Thank you Tom for a great day, beautiful tour and teaching me how to ride a motorbike! We loved every minute of it.
