Most of the reviews cover this well, Tom is excellent and a real pro. Tom took us from no manual experience on bikes to crossing small rivers and it was awesome. Some tips: If tom offers you a jacket take it, it gets very dusty....More

I'm not sure what we paid, just hit him up on the facebook page or email through here. I also noticed he has more bikes now than when I went.
Thanks for your great review of Uncle Tom's Trails. So, I am a 57-year-old woman going to Laos alone next January (husband staying home with dog). I don't really want to ride a motorbike or learn, but I would love to have the experience of traveling through Kasi region on a motorbike. Is this the sort of thing Uncle Tom will do? Or do I just go there to learn to ride a bike (which doesn't interest me)? Thanks so much!
