This was a really good day. Our guide Phat was really friendly and kept us safe and away from lots of traffic - so don't worry. We learnt and saw many new things and riding through the rice fields and seeing the village markets were special. Learning more about that terrible conflict when visiting the tunnels was sobering. Lunch was excellent . You won't regret this.

Our guide Yen took care of us for a great day of local Vietnamese life, explaining not only all the points along the way like rice paper making, rubber plantations and of course the stories behind the tunnels, but also answered all of our questions about Vietnam and the Vietnamese in an entertaining and informative way. The bikes were great, the riding course just long enough yet not too hard to get a sense of a slower pace of life. The stops along the way gave us a glimpse of local family life. Safe and a lot of fun, we highly recommend this tour!
