- There was a tremendous amount of variety and different experiences packed into two weeks. The tour leader luong Gia was excellent and kept us entertained and organised! Highlights were history: the cu chi tunnels and my lai , cycling: going through the rural back roads and cycling down hill fast, the Mekong area, and Halong bay boat trip. Overall a great trip.
Some things not so good: there is a lot of coastal development between north and south and we spent a lot of time peddling on dual carriageways (albeit pretty empty) going on forever it felt. We also stopped at tourist supermarkets a lot where we could be doing something else. The advert should warn people that there is a lot of coach riding which might not suit those who might get car sick. The halong bay cave trip had maybe 200 people queuing to get in- it wasn't worth it.
