(John Meehan reviews of 10 days Honda XR 250cc ride, ~1,300 km)
It seems like the best pictures of Vietnam: country, people, culture were chosen + the tour built around that.
A faster + more reliable bike for the guide is well worth considering as soon as profitability allows.
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
Pretty much stop-over. Very good.
Bikes and equipment
The XR250 is perfect for this tour.
Very good mix + quality. The homestays have been well chosen + add a lot of authenticity to the trips. In some places the mattresses are too hard (firm) for us soft westerners.
Always very good to excellent, especially some of the homestays. In one or two occasions it may have been westernised too much e.g. French fries. I preferred the more local approach.
Guide and organisation
Excellent. Shows a lot of planning has gone into this. Quynh was very understanding of our Aussie foibles + happy to go exploring unknown tracks with us. These are some of the best memories.
Good value. The all inclusive packaging (excluding alcohol + water) is a good approach. Keeps it simple.
