Tour description


Cam Kim is a scenic rural island that is almost entirely free of tourists. This pleasant ride gives the cyclist a fantastic sampling of the countryside of Vietnam, meandering through stunning rural scenes, rice paddies, villages, fields of water buffalo, and local life. Cam Kim Bicycle Tour aims to provide unusual tours that create memories that will remain with you forever. Our tour experiences are heightened by the absence of souvenir sellers along the route so that all you see are the REAL friendly Vietnamese faces. It is truly local culture exploration.

So fun, we went to a place I would have never visited on my own and although I was a bit worried I wouldn't keep up and find the ride too long it was a good length and the instructor will wait for you if you're a bit slower! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the people who do these crafts and it really felt authentic

We had a really good time! Aric was so nice and smiling , he explained intresting stuff and answer all of our questions. The road was nice, all the people we met were great and welcoming. I was a little doubtful that you can see countri side in cycling-distance from Hoi-an, but it did feel like that. Very refreshing from the big city and highly recommend (:

Highly recommended. Lots of fun/informative activities, route takes you through some scenic places. Group size was good. Besides the guide's enthusiasm, I really appreciate that he had a good rapport with the local families we visited. It was nice to see that they were happy to have us visit (and we weren't just another group of tourists disturbing their daily lives).
