Join us for a Classic Minsk Ride to Mai Chau Valley.

Saturday 21-12-13: We leave Hanoi at 8:00 sharp and cruise back roads to Hoa Binh town. From there we will take dirt roads and walking tracks to Mai Chau Valley. Some of the road are impossible for the Jeeps and Land Cruiser so they will take an alternative route and meet further down the road. Lunch will be a picnic in the mountains along route. Arrive in Mai Chau Valley before 18:00 and prepare for the feast and bonfire. Overnight at a homestay in Poom Coong Village.

Sunday 22-12-13: After Breakfast we get back on the bikes and jeeps and head to the Pu Luong Nature reserve where will do some more riding before joining up with the Ho Chi Minh Highway and return to Hanoi. There will be time to stop and take photos have a coffee and enjoy the countryside.

Back home after a long long flight, back to work the day after I got back. The jeep and the tour seem a long way away, the excitement of Hanoi now just a memory. Relaxing by the lake or the wonderful Ha Long bay. The whole trip was a fantastic experience and I really enjoyed seeing just part of your country.

You did a great job looking after us, helped by the boys. If you could have arranged better weather especially in the mountains and around Sa Pa it would have been brilliant but even you cannot perform miracles, or can you???      “No problem” I hear you say!!

I’ve bought 2 money belts similar to the one I had and just want to confirm where you would like me to send them, is it the branch office or head office or your house?

If wish you the very best for your new business and I’m sure as long as you can get people out to Vietnam they will have a great time. If there is anything I can help with over here in England just let me know.

Hi Cuong,
I've been back home for a week now and I'm still recovering from the
I very much enjoyed the bike trip and have been re-living it
a bit, day by day from your video and photo disks, which are very good.
Thank you again for your excellent organisation and that of your team.

May I wish you the best of luck and success with your new venture.
Maybe one day.....?
