I thought that the entire trip was extremely well organised at every stage. I really felt that maximum experience was packed into to allotted time, with no compromise on experience. The cycling was well planned and safely managed. The support of the CEO and the mechanics, local guides and drivers was excellent. As the slowest member of the group, I always had support with me and encouragement to keep going. The cycling was well balanced with local culture experiences. The knowledge of all the guides was second to none. The provision of water and snacks throughout made a huge difference. Overall, the trip exceeded my expectations. In addition, the accommodation was of a very high standard. August 2015

Well planned and managed. Good focus on group interaction without overdoing it. Good value taking into account the guide and cycling support, inclusion of many activities, high standard of equipment used and also the accommodation and transport. I genuinely could not fault anybody involved.

These trips succeed largely, in my opinion, based on the quality of the CEO and the compatibility of the group members who hail from different countries. Next is the quality of the lodgings and dining experiences, within the context of the trip's comfort level. Also, the pace of the trip and the flexibility in the agenda are important. This trip met all of these factors. I think that the nature of the G Adventures trips tends to attract experienced "adventure" travelers from around the world who are comfortable going with the flow, which is not always smooth. The unexpected is a big part of what you remember about these trips.

Itinerary

Day 1 Ho Chi Minh City

Welcome to bustling Ho Chi Minh City, one of Vietnam's most thriving cities. There are no activities planned, but there will be a scheduled group meeting in the evening around 6pm. After the meeting, opt to head out for an optional dinner to get to know the CEO and fellow group members. Until the meeting, enjoy free time to relax and explore the city. Why not take the chance to visit Thien Hau and Giac Vien pagodas, Ben Than Market, Reunification Palace or the War Remnants Museum? Additional Notes: Please check at the reception desk or look for a G Adventures notice board with details of the actual meeting time. At this meeting the CEO will ask to see your travel insurance, double check your Vietnam visa, and complete some other paper work. Please note that most nationalities require a visa to enter Vietnam. Please double check this with your travel agent or local Vietnamese Embassy. Included Activities: Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting

Day 2 Ho Chi Minh City/Bến Tre (1B)

In the morning, visit the Cu Chi Tunnels and learn about the Vietnam-American War. The Cu Chi Tunnels are a complex network of tunnels that Viet Cong forces lived in to protect themselves from the opposing forces. They stored ammunition, had underground hospitals and served as a hidden base to attack the allied forces. If you are not claustrophobic, you may want to crawl through some of the tunnel network to get a feel for what it must have been like during the war. Approximate cycling distance: 25km (15 mi) Included Activities: Củ Chi Cycling Cu Chi Tunnels Guided Tour Transport: Load up the support vehicle with bikes in the morning and head out towards Cu Chi. Private Vehicle Drive from Cu Chi into the Mekong Delta. Private Vehicle Take the ferry across the Mekong to Ben Tre. Ferry

Day 3 Bến Tre/Trà Ôn (1B, 1D)

Start the day by exploring the breakfast options at both the hotel and the local market.Then take a boat ride to explore the surrounding area. There are a number of islands situated in the river which are sometimes not connected to the mainland other than by a small ferry. It's then time for some cycling. Take an easy, flat ride through the shady canal paths and back roads, stopping along the way to try the fresh fruit and to have a tasty lunch. In the late afternoon, arrive at the home of our hosts. Enjoy some time to relax and, perhaps, help a little with dinner. Included Activities: Cycling Bến Tre to Trà Ôn Transport: Boat

Day 4 Trà Ôn/Châu Đốc (1B)

Upon waking, you will be wishing your time in the Delta won't end, but there is still time to see the floating markets for which this area has become quite well known. As most people will head to the chaotic main market near Can Tho, the hosts will take us to a real, local floating market where vegetables are tossed from craft to craft and a little coffee vendor boat bounces in and out of the gaps, serving strong iced coffee to both vendors and customers. After taking some time to experience this explosion of colour and activity, return to the mainland. Take to the bikes again to explore some more of those lovely canal paths where the only traffic is an occasional motor scooter or pedestrian. End up with an hour transfer to the hotel in Chau Doc city. Included Activities: Floating Market Visit Cycling Trà Ôn to Chau Doc Transport: Drive from Long Xuyen to Chau Doc. Private Vehicle

Day 5 Châu Đốc/Phnom Penh (1B)

Our Cambodian driver welcomes the group on the Cambodian side and takes us to Phnom Penh. Visit the Choeung Ek Genocidal Centre on the way back to Phnom Penh. Learn about one of the darkest points in the history of Cambodia during the Khmer Rough Regime. Arrive in Phnom Penh early in the afternoon. Phnom Penh has had a turbulent history. When the French colonialists arrived, it was little more than a collection of wooden shacks by the river, but they soon changed that and in doing so created what was once considered a very beautiful city. When the Khmer Rouge evacuated the city in 1975, they started it on its way to decay and decline, a theme that had carried through until only fairly recently when the country's economic development accelerated rapidly. Included Activities: Border Crossing (Vietnam - Cambodia) Transport: Drive from Chau Doc across the border into Cambodia and on to Phnom Penh. Private Vehicle

Day 6 Phnom Penh (1B)

Cycle the Oudong Trail, starting along railway tracks before passing through the countryside to Oudong Mountain. Included Activities: Oudong Trail Cycling Transport: Return to Phnom Penh from Oudong Mountain. Private Vehicle

Day 7 Phnom Penh/Siem Reap (1B)

Enjoy this highlight ride and gain a unique perspective of Phnom Penh and its surrounds. Transport: Private Vehicle

Day 8 Siem Reap (1B)

As first light dawns and the roosters begin to crow, the day begins at the most important religious monument in the country, looking at the triple towers of Angkor Wat across a reflecting pool. After the sun rises as a giant orange ball behind the towers, the crowds will thin out as most people return to bed. Instead, make use of the cool temperatures and soft morning light to explore Angkor Wat. Monkeys and a handful of other travellers are the only others at the site. A delicious breakfast spread awaits just a short pedal away. After filling up, continue to explore the iconic Angkor temples and some hidden treasures of the Angkor area. Ride through some lovely back trails and even ride atop the wall of Angkor Thom, overlooking the moat on the way back to Siem Reap. Included Activities: Angkor Wat Guided Tour Angkor Wat Cycling

Day 9 Siem Reap (1B)

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: Minimum age of 18 years for this trip.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. Please note that all passengers traveling to Antarctica are required to fill out this questionnaire. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
