I have about 4 other bicycle tour companies to compare with, and Pedaltours is the perfect fit for me. They somehow find the right combination of authenticity and luxury. All guides were Vietnamese and the main one spoke perfect English. He was committed to making everyone's experience trouble free. He was also lots of fun and responsive to our group's requests.
The hotel and restaurant choices were great. As a solo traveler I appreciated that most meals were group. Though the kind of people attracted to PT are also the type who would make sure you didn't have to eat alone. Great tour, great country!
