Thank you very much to our guide Mike for this wonderful experience! We really enjoyed the bike tour, that gave us the opportunity to explore the beautiful landscape and get an impression on the daily life of the locals. The ride was relaxed, with two breaks in very nice local cafes. Of corse My Son was also impressive and it was good to have the guide with us who explained everything and took very nice photos of us :) This tour is a really good alternative to the bus tours, in case you don't want to see only the highlights but the country itself as well. Don't be scared by the distance, the ride is not difficult.

The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a lovely day and learnt a lot about the beautiful city of Hoi An. It was an excellent experience.

A great tour - you get a good impression of how they live outside of the tourist centers in Vietnam, are well looked after and equipped with good bikes!

Beautiful bike ride through the countryside, delicious food and very educational tour of the ruins. Loved the tour and Lyna was a wonderful guide!
