(John Tu Moran reviews of 8 days on Honda road bike, ~1,000 km)
All in one it was a good time and the sites were beautiful.
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
The tempo wasn’t a problem. In fact for the most part the ride amount was good.
The motorcycles are smaller than advertised on the website, this is not so much a problem, especially in the towns were a bigger bike wouldn’t be as nimble and able to get out of trouble! It was just disappointing at first, if the website were changed this wouldn’t be a problem. (OV: We did have several bike options, the bike you had was a GL Pro 160cc which is our standard bike option, sorry for any misunderstanding here.)
In the hotel at the Gulf of Tonkin my room smelled musty. Other than that the accommodation was good, I enjoyed the Thai stilt house in Mai Chau, as well as the hotel in Hoi An.
The food was good though the website says only alcohol is what you need to pay for but all drinks are a la carte.
The organization – Guide services
Ngoc was an awesome tour guide, I can’t say enough about how great he was, professional, knowledgeable, fun and understanding whatever your paying him is not enough.
The price was reasonable, though I felt what I payed for wasn’t what I got because the website listed a different itinerary, it was disappointing to not get to see Khe Sanh and Hamburger Hill which is what the website lists in its itinerary! (OV: The reason we didn’t see Khe Sanh was we went to Vinh Moc tunnel and needed to get the two Russian riders to Danang for their flight back to Moscow)
How did you know about us?
I found you on the Internet.
