Just wanted to give you my feedback from the bike trip. Overall, this is a great trip. It’s a good itinerary and although we had some long days, everyone hung in there and made it ok. Lee was an excellent guide. He judged distances and times very well and we never felt rushed. Lee also interacted well with the group and knew how to mix with Aussies. He was great. Not sure about his mechanical abilities as he wasn’t too keen to mess with the bikes too much. Hai, the driver, was harder to relate to as because he didn’t speak English. But he was always where he was supposed to be with the truck and did his job well.
The bikes were great for what they were and the job they did. They were pretty reliable although the usual comment was the brakes were pretty worn and so were some of the gear boxes. But overall they were great and got us around the whole trip. We did pull out the spare XL but it wouldn’t idle so we put it straight back. A bit of a waste dragging it around the whole trip.
The accommodation was also quite good and the farm-stay was an excellent last night experience. The Hanoi Boutique Hotel was an excellent place to start and very close by. Their staff were excellent and helped us out getting orientated.
Overall you were excellent to deal with. We got more than we were expecting and it was well organised and executed. You should be well proud of your operation and staff. We personally know the owner of Travel Indochina and he told us he would only recommend 2 bike tour companies – and you were the only one in Hanoi. His recommendation proved worthy. Well done.
That’s about it Anh. Thanks for a great trip and we will certainly recommend you to others. We think we would like to try Burma next.
All the best for the summer season and beyond,
