The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Charming towns & rural beauty
Even in the midst of economic growth, Vietnam is as quaint and picturesque as the first time we cycled here more than a decade ago. The country is thriving, which means the roads are a bit better (making our bikes a little happier) and even more luxurious hotels pepper the coast. The people, however, remain the same: gracious, warm and infinitely inviting—and we certainly meet a lot of them on our journey. We take in all the highlights—from historic Hue to colourful Hoi An to endless miles of country and coastal roads. (Price is inclusive of $140 internal flights.)

Day by Day
Following breakfast at the hotel, we say farewell to Ho Chi Minh City and head to the stunning land of Can Tho, where we'll ride along the Mekong canals and past local farmers who mostly grow dragon fruit.
Catch the local fishermen and plantation farmers trade their catches and crops at the Cai Rang floating markets on the Hau River. From the market, we set out to discover the back alley paved roads by bike.
This morning we fly north to Da Nang. Our bikes await for a ride through the countryside before we head to the exciting town of Hoi An, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tonight, we'll taste Vietnam’s best fusion cuisine.
Pedal past fish farms, water buffalo and ancestral tombs to a Vietnamese cooking class led by our local host. Tonight is yours to explore the culinary delights of Hoi An’s charming, lantern-lit streets.
Stroll through Hoi An's morning market, taking in the sights and smells of the bustling street vendors. This afternoon, we'll lend a helping hand at a local herb and organic vegetable garden.
We travel by car beneath the spectacular ‘Pass of the Clouds’—those who prefer to pedal over the mountain pass can take on the challenge. Enjoy downtime at our next hotel, and be sure not to miss the spa!
We lunch aboard a private boat as we cruise down the Perfume River to the tomb of Minh Ming. This evening, our friends Mr. and Mrs. Vinh invite us over for a traditional homemade dinner.
We will drive you either 20 minutes to the Hue Airport, or 2.5 hours to the Danang Airport for your departing flight. Safe travels!

Pilgrimage Village, Hue
This luxurious retreat is located in the peaceful countryside, yet still just 4 km (2 mi) from the centre of Hué.

Our guides anticipated our every need in a way that made us feel supported and encouraged. They elevated our trip to the next level with their exuberant, yet professional spirit—often adding in excursions on the fly, such as the tailoring trips, or museums, without a blink.— Susie & Joel Carp
Memorable moments: Sunset over the bay at Six Senses; biking along the trails of Vietnam and seeing the smiling children call out "hello, hello"; soaking up the feel of the countryside and seeing the people in their everyday lives. Guides are spectacular and make the trip outstanding.— Barbara Hill
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
