TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

 Classic cycling journeys, riding from SaiGon to Hanoi. Along the way we stop to visit the main sites in Dalat, Nha Trang, Hoi An, Hue, and finally Hanoi. What makes this tour special is  our route will far from Highway One, as we ride along quiet or  back roads to discover the real Vietnam.
 With thousands of kilometers of stunning beaches and dramatic coastal roads as well as some of the freshest seafood going this trip is an indulgent experience. We are never far from a beach and stay in comfortable hotels to make this trip our most cushy adventure tour.
