Great way to see Nha Trang’s countryside

Thank you to Stephen who showed us around the Nha Trang country side. Starting in the city we cycled out to some areas that we would not have had the opportunity to see otherwise. It was a great ride, much better to do it this way than in a car. Highlights included visiting two sisters making traditional grass mats, we had the chance to try it ourselves and also learn about the art of doing this, it’s hard works and they work nonstop all day long, we picked up a couple of mats for ourselves. The fresh food market was great, looking at all of the locally grown produce, we also stopped by a rice field and then for coffee and tea - also nice highlights. Stephen was a gracious host, he knew we wanted to get some of the coffee filters to take home so he showed us to a local shopping centre where we could get some. We found this way of exploring Nha Trang very fulfilling!

Really enjoyed this trip, our guide was very charming, good knowledge of Vietnam’s history and of the sites visited, his English was excellent. The trip was advertised as lasting 6 hrs, but we were returned to our hotel after only 4 hrs, also we did not visit the paddy fields or stop for lunch, I would have liked more time in the country side. The tour seemed a bit rushed.

Our cyclo drivers Man and Mr Tung were right on time for our pick up and then our English speaking guide So, arrived as well. We had a fabulous morning with them, visiting several places we wouldn’t normally have seen. So was very knowledgeable and his English was easily understood. It was a great way to see Nha Trang city. Thank you so much we had a fun time

The company was very easy to deal with. David our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.

Great tour was really well run, had an amazing time
