Guided bicycle tours provide the convenience of having everything planned out for you: accommodation, rental bikes, meals, luggage transfers, sightseeing tours and so on. Our guide will choose the best places to eat, comfy places to stay and good services wherever we cycle.
Support and personnel vary by tour, but one guide typically rides with the group, while a driver drives a support van with your luggage. The van also makes it possible to bridge less attractive or more challenging sections of a route. There can be a mechanic when the group size is big or the service is required by the customers.
This is the most popular type of tours we have been providing in Vietnam.
Fully guided bicycle tours
A Vietnam Cycling fully guided bicycle tour is a great choice for the adventure-hungry cyclist who prefers riding with a smaller load — the individual who relishes the freedom of riding unencumbered but still enjoys a cycling challenge.
Besides lightening your load, the presence of the support vehicle adds a degree of security in that you’ll have a ride available in the case of injury, illness, or mechanical breakdown. Meanwhile, our guide can share information about the area you’re cycling through and solve any problems or concerns that may arise.
