The 10 days challenging "Trails of Tonkin Alpes Mountain Bike"
It was the best mountain biking tour we have done so far, and we have done quite a few (Nothern Thailand, New Zealand, Bali). The terrain and biking was tough (as advertised on the website), accomodations in the mountains spartan, but rewards enormous: navigating the single track and jeep trails in the mountains of Vietnam's northernmost province, visiting Hmong minority villages, chatting up locals working in the fields, playing a game of chinese chess with a local master in a tea shop. Never saw another tourist for the duration of the trip.
The trip was organized on a high professional level: the guide was enthusiastic, ready to cater to our wishes, with a good command of English language. Quality of mountain bikes we rented was outstanding (brand new double suspension Cannondale). Bikes were cleaned every night and tuned up every morning. Transportation was smooth and safe.
Marco Polo Travel Adventure Company is a small scale outfit and they take care of you well. Unlike some other large scale operators they provide personal service and genuinely seem to care that you have a great time. And you get all of that at 30-40% discount compared to other agencies that offer similar itinerary. Overall highly recommended.
