How to rock and roll from Hanoi to Luang Prabang by bike
I cannot enough express how happy we are with our biking with Vietnam Backroads Bicycle Tours
Everything was very well organized and our guide took us to parts of the country that we would never have seen otherwise
The one thing that would have made the trip even better is if we were provided some kind of detailed map to follow along with!

It was a great trip, a great way to see Vietnam, experience the culture and learn about its history. We saw so many things we would not have seen driving by car. The trails and back roads we took helped us to see so much of the way of life of the people of Vietnam. We enjoyed the food so much, got to try many new things and specialties of the country. Loc was an excellent guide, took great care of us, his English was excellent and he was very knowledgeable the history of the country. Cuong was an excellent driver in the crazy traffic of Vietnam. He was also very helpful with bike set up and helping us with picnics.
Great tour, great itinerary with lots of diversity. Everyday was an adventure! 01 - 14 April, 2016
We really appreciated the extremely well organized tour. Everything from 1st contact to the last day of our tour was perfectly organized and we felt in very good hands at all times. The bikes have been in good condition and have been adjusted individually to each one of us.
The layout of the tour has been well chosen. We enjoyed crossing rice fields and riding through backroads of beautiful Vietnam as much as climbing mountains within the rainforest. The variety of each single day of the tour gave a great taste of how diverse the country really is. Supplies throughout the tour have been perfect. Whenever a break was needed, everything was there: drinks, snacks, fresh fruits, warm lunch and even for us Germans, plenty of cold beer to enjoy after each stage of the tour!!!
Accommodation on the tour was also well organized. Outside the main cities options have been rather limited and therefore basic but we always found a place to have a shower and bed to sleep. Van and Tho always did a fantastic job by selecting places and food for lunch and/or dinner. The variety and taste have been amazing.
Besides the tour itself, Backroads also did a great job by choosing “must-see” stops in Vietnam like the Amazing Cave, Khe Sanh, Da Krong Bridge, Imperial City or My Son. Our guide Tho was always well prepared to give us huge background information on all the sites. This has been a great chance for all of us to learn more about the history of Vietnam.
Thank you very very much Tho for the tour and the extra time and effort you took to keep us happy at all times.
Van, thank you for the overall organization and support. We can clearly recommend to use Backroads for any tour in Vietnam. Great job! From February 23, 2015
Ps: We also hope to see (and get) all the pictures that have been taken on the tour!!
Many hotel were excellent, but some were just okay. I will send an email specifies. We LOVED our cycling trip! Phuc was a helpful, fun and knowledgeable guide. He helped with everything & made the experience exciting and fun. Mr My was a conscientious and skilled driver( cooking lessons in Hoi An, clothing tailor, squid rolls on the beach, barbecued goat in the mountains, coconuts of the tree!) He ever help us get a resort room for after the trip ended. The best…! 23 Dec 2012 - 05 Jan 2013

Fantastic way for us to see North to South Vietnam and good as we are Vietnamese we got to see the non tourist sites and more local life. The staff – tour guide & and driver are very friendly and professional. We will definitely do more with the tours and recommend to our friends to try.
Thanks you very much for a great experience. 17 - 30 Dec 2012
I will blog about this tour on Vietnam Backroads Bike Tours

Trip was fantastic! Tour guides and staff were excellent. Hotel Happy Light in Nha Trang was below expectation due to poor bath rooms and room maintenance faucets.
No pressure to buy anything (tourist staff) was good. 17 - 30 Dec 2012
Thank you so much for the best holiday. The food was fantastic, probably a little too much at times I haven't lost any weight after cycling 700 kms. The accommodation was above the standard I expected especially for the one night stays.
The organisational side of things was excellent running like clockwork. The staff you employed went out of their way to help and make sure we had water, food, were comfortable on our bikes, we were very spoilt.
Our truck driver was there all the time filling water bottles getting us food. Our bus driver (Hi - not sure how to spell it) was running after us making sure we had everything we needed and his driving was exceptional. Ican't praise Bobby and Nghi enough they made the trip a wonderful experience, it was hard to leave we felt they were part of our group. 11 - 24 Nov 2012
*FOR NEXT YEAR*
I would like to organise another trip for 2013, doing the Mekong Delta/ Phu Quoc Island area because that would be completely different to what we have seen. Just a couple of questions - what month do you think we should do the Mekong Delta - I will aim to get about 12 people again and we would look at flying in on the Saturday to Ho Chi Min and starting the trip on the Sunday - then flying out 14 days later on the Saturday Night, I think that was a great way to see everything and the flights were easy from Sydney to Ho Chi Minh.
On this trip we wouldn't do the guided tours of temples etc and would be looking more at country side and villages. Any help and advice you can give me would be great. Not sure if anyone found a bike seat left in the bus, not a problem if they haven't but Debbie thinks she left it behind. Thanks again and please thank your wonderful guides and drivers for us - maybe they can all do the next trip with us, that would be good.
