Crawley, West Sussex
- I was amazed at how much we did during this tour - out of 16 people, 14 hadn't booked with Explore before - surprisingly, we all got along really well. Although we arrived in Vietnam during their Lunar New Year our tour guide, Binh managed exceedingly well to arrange all our group dinners. He was so knowledgeable and made his country so interesting. The cycling was, indeed, easy and nobody minded when I got in last because I'd wanted to take photos! There were so many highlights - our first cycle ride through Hanoi! Coping with the organised mayhem that is the traffic system was a major boost to our moral. Cycling through the small villages and have children run after you and shout "hello", spectacular scenery! We loved the fact we went into people's houses and saw how they lived and ate and were so welcoming.
