    The trip was lots of fun and covered a lot in one day - paper making, pottery, temples, villages, caves, ferry rides across the Mekong, lunch at a family home etc. The only issue was that the tour was described as a leisurely bike ride for all levels. This is really an intense all day mountain bike ride on hilly rough roads - great if you are looking for an adventure but it isn't a leisurely ride so definitely not for all levels. As a late 30s fit person, I found it very challenging. If the mountain bikes were fitted better then I think the ride could have been easier. This is a great day if you know what you are getting into - tons of sites and challenges.
