1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Not only one thing to choose: the stunning landscape, the bike group with people who have the same passion for biking, the moment we completed the last kilometer, the big variation in taste and food, the very friendly people and children along the route etc, etc.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Try to book some extra days before- and after the trip to do the Halong Bay trip and at the end the Cu Chi tunnels trip.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, a lot of times our guide took us to local restaurants to benefit the local people. We also were more conscious to use less plastic bags ans straws.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good trip, not cheap, but value for money. However it would be very helpful if there was a little bit of communication possible between the attendees before the trip starts. This would help to break the ice a little bit in the beginning. But for so-called privacy reasons this was not permitted. The travel agency should facillitate this so attendees can give their permission or not (by ticking a box or something like that).

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

A combination of small things really. Cycling in Hanoi the first time. Good companionship. Learning where various fruits and herbs originate.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Read these and other comments and glean as much information as possible. ie seat padding. Rather than build up a lot of dirty laundry. Wash each evening and alternate two sets of clothes.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I only have the integrity of the tour operator to go on. Buying fresh fruit and braving Street Cafes is all an individual can do. In Hanoi, next to the lake school teachers ask you if their pupils can practice speaking English with you. I found that inspiring.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Demanding, enjoyable. I will do another elsewhere.
