This gave us everything that we seek from a cycling holiday: adventure, exercise, companionship, new experiences and challenges, excellent leadership and organisation, value for money.
A very local experience
Vietnam is an amazing place and the tour provides a great way of seeing the country. We were fortunate to have a lovely group of people on our tour. By cycling we were better able to connect with the locals than traveling as regular tourists. Most of our coffee/lunch/dinner stops were in ‘very local’ places that we would never have stopped at if we were traveling on a bus tour. Great memories also of all the school kids calling greetings and giving us high fives as we passed through their villages. Not forgetting the great local tour guide and bus driver, bike mechanic, and truck driver who supported us every step of the way. Big thanks to them especially Anh our leader. The tour is well named as most of it was in the mountains or near the coast. So just be prepared for a bit of climbing and don’t expect the road surfaces to be as smooth as butter; but the Trek rental mountain bikes coped very well and were perfect for this. Thanks Skedaddle for another good trip.
Great fun cycling...
I think our guide was probably the best guide tour leader we have ever had, and we have had some good ones! He was gentle, courteous and such fun to be with. He looked after us so well. We felt confident and safe with him, as well as liking him enormously on a personal level. Already browsing looking for the next holiday.
So much to see!
Best holiday I have ever had – it exceeded my expectations over and over again. An amazing experience!
It was an incredible experience
I loved the rides in the hills and countryside, together with the long descents , this was a magical journey.
The routes were well planned and our guide worked well to understand the group and our aims. Having the mechanic at the back really helped my morale and knowing the support trucks were able to top up water, give lots of smiles and offer support when I was poorly was just fantastic. In my opinion no day could be improved because Young and his team were so supportive and flexible.
I had an incredible time and it was down to our guide Young’s passion for his job and country and also the teamwork between all the guides. He was an exceptional leader! So enthusiastic, kind, fun and interesting.
Everything I could have wished for
The trip was amazing. We made friends along the way with the other riders and all jelled well. The service provided by Skedaddle, from Adam in the office who you could ask questions before to Ollie at the trip, was fantastic. Our guide Trung and Ollie were excellent and not fazed by anything. The hotels were excellent as were the refreshments during the ride, and every day was a favourite!
I'm hooked. The people are always great.
Tony is an exceptional person and an exceptional Tour Leader. I don’t think what I write will do him even half of the justice he deserves but suffice to say he was calm, caring, funny, professional, full of great stories and very encouraging at all times. If I was in a crisis, I would want Tony there! Thank you Tony for such a great experience – I’ll never forget it! Hopefully see you on another Skedaddle trip.
Ticked all the boxes and more!
A truly fantastic holiday. Far better than we expected! Hard to say a favouite day as every day cycling was excellent.
