(Susan Wade reviews of 8 days on Honda road bike 160cc adventure, ~1,300 km)
The guides made this trip. They worked hard to keep bikes running well and everyone happy! The whole group finished the ride with big smiles.
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
Tempo worked well for our group. Would have preferred a little earlier starts to avoid getting in in the dark. Guides responded to requests for more picture stops which was great.
Bikes and equipment
My motorcycle ran fine. I would be willing to pay more for newer motorcycles with suspension.
Most accommodation were great. The hotel in Lang Son was not good. I would recommend a better hotel be used in that area. Everyone loved the host family at the first guest-house (Vu Linh).
Food was good. Guides worked hard to order food that would satisfy everyone in the group.
Guide and organisation
Both Thoi and Luan were excellent. They were very knowledgeable, responded immediately to our requests, and handled challenging situations very well. When I was violently ill on the road they found a truck to transport me and made sure I had everything required.
Worth every penny, it was a trip of a lifetime.
