- A great trip with lots of variety. Highlights were cycling down the high pass in the rain and fog, overnight train to Hanoi and the cruise in spectacular Halong Bay.
I was definitely a step down fitness wise from the rest of the group, but I was never made to feel like I was holding the trip up as I was pottering along at the back way behind everyone else - I got lots of coaching and general cycling assistance of my own due to being the slow poke at the back and now feel a much stronger cyclist and at last properly confident with my gears as a result!
Great reactions and first aid from the tour guides when I inevitably took a tumble at one point!
