    "We (a group of 5 seniors) found these guys on advert for motorbike tours in vietnam and quickly emailed them for a trip. micheal is truly a speedy man when sending us back a very great proposal matching our needs, time. after some more questions, we rushed into a final deal with them and honestly everything was running smoothly as clock's work. We all were arranged free pickup at the airport upon arrival and 1 night stay at the old quarter's hotel, 100% our bikes are like-new CRFs under very good conditions. our tour guide - Vinh just showed up in a very experienced & professional way when giving us some very useful briefing information prior to the departure. His English is really excellent and explained all things very intensively on tour. Vinh also tried to rotate as much as possible different local foods at places that we traveled by to ensure we all can maximize tasting amazing foods in Vietnam. All accommodations are clean, well equipped with wifi - tv, hot water... we really enjoyed the trip so much and wish to come back again. and indochina motorbike tour is still our choice"
