North Vietnam Family cycling
The northern Family Tour was designed especially for families. It offers shorter daily distances than the usual tour program, due in part to scheduled boat cruise in Halong Bay. Hotels are family friendly, many with pools, and overnight stops are in towns where kids are likely to have lots of diversions – and lots of fun. In addition to the beautiful scenery along the way, the tour also passes by many attractions and activities that kids will love including a grotto , visits to zoos and an national park.
