(Scott Fletcher reviews of 7 days Honda XR250, ~1,500 km)
I would like to personally thank you Anh, for helping us out when my father lost his passport. Your help was greatly appreciated and I will be telling everyone I meet about you. If there is anything I can do to help you, say like with the website, which is what I do for work. Don’t hesitate to contact me.
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
Perfect! The standard trip on the website had a few days that were too short a ride. Thon changed the 2nd Day to miss a stop and continue straight to Ba Be, which made that day and the next day the best of the tour.
Bikes and equipment
Great. Obviously, the bike is perfect or brand new. But they did the job and were ready to take on anywhere the tour took us.
The guest houses in the villages were awesome. I preferred them over the hotel stays at Cao Bang and Lang Son. Even though the guest houses weren’t as good as the hotels, it gave the tour a more local feel.
The food was awesome. The tour started with normal Asian western style food. But by the 3rd day, it gets boring. Then we asked Thon to give us a more traditional breakfast and dinner, and it was a refreshing change.
Guide and organisation
Thon was an awesome guide and his knowledge of Vietnam was much better than other guides we met. The organisation was perfect, even when we changed the tour to be customised to us, it ran without any problem.
Very good. Even though you could do it cheaper if I organised it myself. I was happy to pay that little bit more, for you to organise the whole thing and all I need to do was turn up.
How did you know about us?
Cycle Torque Magazine (http://www.cycletorque.com.au). They did a featured article on Offroad Vietnam, and one of the tours. I was hooked and had to do it.
