You have to go!

This trip has so many positives it is hard to list them all but here goes; Organisation from Exodus pre-travel was excellent as was the slight changes I made to my trip to accommodate onward travel to Hanoi. The guide was amazing and her humour and attention to detail made it all run really smoothly. This type of holiday allows you to see at first hand real people and observe their sometimes simple and challenging lives, you would never see this in a coach or car. The bikes were were good quality and sized accordingly. Roads and tracks were easy going really, some shallow inclines and easy off-road. The issue i guess is the heat when cycling rather than the distance. This is compensated for by regular pre-planned stops and plenty of fluid and nutritional snacks, provided by the kitty. The support crews were the unsung heroes really, they made it all work so easily and despite most of them not speaking any English they were always happy to help. It was this whole package that made the trip work so well. The hotels we stayed in were o0n the whole very good and the food was good too. We chose as a group to eat together each night which was a good way to unwind from the exertions of the day! A group holiday required a bit of give and take and that means being a bit laid back, group dynamic is everything to a successful trip. Our group was great ans we all got on really well and helped each other when required. The trip itself offers quite a variety of experiences such as remote farming and fishing communities, temples (plenty of those!), some 'nightlife' such as Pub Street in Siem Reap and equally tranquil moments in really remote places. The variety is there too as each country is different in many ways and it is this that you will remember most.

cycle Indochina & Angkor

I thought the whole of the trip was excellent and very well organised. Nee and all of the staff in the 3 countries visited gave a very good service with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble. Nee made the trip memorable.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Kevin and his travelling companions (below reviews) for their reviews. We were pleased to read that they really enjoyed their trip and found Sutinee to be a great leader, and we can fully understand their shock in learning that she will no longer be leading trips for Exodus. Sutinee has been leading our trips for a number of years and we have received excellent feedback about her so the decision that has been made was not taken lightly. Whilst we are confident that it is the right decision in the circumstances, this is a hugely disappointing situation for everyone involved.

Cycle Indochina & Angkor

An absolutely superb trip, so much to see in each country - the scenery, landscape, people and culture. Visiting Angkor was amazing as was staying with a local family in the Mekong Delta.

Cycle indochina and Angkor

My first visit to the Far East , loads of new experiences nearly all positive . The first 3days cycling were quite demanding but once into Cambodia there was a lot more to see and do . Cycling in Siem Reap city was not for the faint hearted. The Mekong Delta was just packed with people . Saigon was full of life and great fun as long as you didn't want to cross the road, there are 6 million motor cycles all driving straight at you.

Great trip

This was a fantastic trip which offered a really good mixture of cycling & sightseeing (countryside, cities, historical monuments & wonders of the world). I especially loved the cycling in Thailand, which is where most of the riding is done (the trip notes are not up to date so the mileage each day is a bit different in reality). The Thai cycling team are absolutely fantastic so you can go as fast or as slow as you like & I loved going for it. The feeling of freedom cycling along long rural roads in the sun passing, among other things, paddy fields, water buffalo & rubber tree plantations is amazing. In Cambodia it is more about the sights - Angkor Wat, killing fields etc so there is less cycling & what there is is a bit slower & the group has to stay together due to the roads being very busy. I would recommend reading up a little in advance of the trip so you can make the most & really understand what you're going to see as the local guides cant possibly tell you everything. In Vietnam again the cycling is quite easy but it's a really amazing place. The people of Vietnam are so welcoming with the homestay & Saigon being two of my favourite parts of the whole trip. The optional visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels is also a must.

Fantastic trip that changes with each country

A great trip that differs in style in each country. Thailand you are on very quiet roads and complete long (80-90km) rides each day. Very relaxing and you can go at any pace. Staying in small towns with a few bus transfers to avoid the busy roads. Cambodia is mainly in the tourist areas and you cycle around Angkor wat and the surrounding area. This tended to be slower and with the group. Vietnam was through small villages and towns and you spend most your time waving at the locals. Great fun and loads to see and do.
