I cannot rate Explore Indochina highly enough. From the planning stage they were incredibly helpful and offered help with visas, airport transfers and accommodation before and after the tour. Our guide, Tony was incredible. He is full of enthusiasm, great fun and very knowledgeable. He really did everything possible to make our holiday an adventure. The riding was hard at times (I am a total off road novice and some of the "roads" are pretty gnarly) but the route was perfectly tailored to our abilities offering just the right level of challenges. I fell in love with my bike on day one (Minsk 125) and it didn't let me down. They are properly tough machines and just take everything you throw at them. Having our ninja mechanic, Vy along certainly helped too as he kept the bikes running. No one ever saw him work on the bikes but smashed mirrors magically became whole again and minor niggles disappeared overnight! The accommodation was fantastic especially at the homestays which were comfortable and authentic with fantastic food and always well stocked with beer (and occasionally zio)! We really felt like we were off the tourist trail and got to see real Vietnamese life. We packed so much in to 5 days (Karst Away Tour) but we still left wanting more so we will be back to do a much longer tour of the south as soon as the bank balance allows!
