1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were too many great memories to recall, however, the Cu Chi Tunnels tour was fascinating although I did bail out of the tunnel crawl after 25 metres - even though widened it was very narrow and hot. The cycling through Vietnam on small tracks that passed little villages was amazing as was the hospitality of the Vietnamese. The food was also lovely - I ate like a king and yet lost 6lbs!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you travel in February it is very hot so light clothes and plenty of fluids are the order of the day. Temperatures get up to the mid 30's Centigrade and what would be an easy flat ride in the UK is made quite difficult by the heat.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes the locals benefited - we stopped for lunch at small locally run eateries and of course cycling is the most sustainable form of transport.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. I started the tour with a number of strangers who became good friends after this superb shared experience. The food, the people and the weather were brilliant (ok the weather may have been a little hot for my liking!). The bikes in Vietnam were modern hard tail mountain bikes although the ones in Cambodia could have done with an upgrade. There was however, less cycling in Cambodia but the off road (tracks) cycling trip to Angkor Watt was worth the cost of the tour alone!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Cambodia riding bikes through Angkor Wat and Vietnam riding backroads through villages.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Make sure to bring medical (anti nausiand and diahrea) for food poisoning. Packing list provided should be more specific to exact tour ie/ hiking books were not necessary and were heavy to transport across the world.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not particularily

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

7 out of 10
