(Mr. Randall & Mrs. Elizabeth Haines reviews of 12 days Big North Vietnam venture + Halong Bay, ~2,000 km)
Vietnam and its people are wonderful. The roads varied from smooth tar seal to dirt & mud. Even with all the Internet photos I saw before coming over, the reality is so much more beautiful & exciting.
Well done Offroad Vietnam!!
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
Our 12 day tour was what we had asked for. The tempo was perfect, with some short days & some long days. Plenty of stops with drinks, lunch & resting. We could stop anytime for photos.
Our motorcycle, the Honda 160s simply amazed us. They took us, our gear, water etc. with ease. No breakdown or flats & we travelled some exciting roads. Quynh, our, our guide, kept the bikes in good condition with daily maintenance.
A combination of home stays and hotels was perfect. Hotels were all good, even had air-con. Home stays are the most rewarding way to meet the local people. All our hosts were very kind and fun to stay with.
Too much – too good! We had a huge variety of food. Tried different things for many meals. Spring rolls rule!
The organization – Guide services
Right from our first contact from N.Z. we had great information supplied. The way we were treated from the beginning continued for the whole trip. Anh Wu did a perfect job for us.
Our guide, Quynh, quickly became our friend and it was because of his care that we had such a good time.
Good value. Everything was as it was said to be. No one skimped on anything. Bikes were great with no problems. The scenery was worth a million Dollars.
