Offroad Vietnam Motorbike Adventures – Riders Age For Off road Motorbike Tours

Group size and riders age for off road motorbike tours are very important if you want to come back in one piece. In fact, Vietnamese traffic is busy and scary. Therefore, every guide only rides with maximum five or six riders. More than six riders we do need a second guide on the trip.

Group Size

The maximum group size for rides in the north is from 5 to 8 people per group (limited to 6 motorcycles), riders or pillion passengers. This will enhance your experience and ensure a high degree of personal attention. Rides down the Ho Chi Minh Trail, however, can accommodate much larger groups because we use a support vehicle at your request (extra fees applied). Small groups enable us to trek into remote areas with minimal intrusion to the local cultures. Riding in a large convoy with all the inherent complications and delays is just not our way.

The best group size is from three to four riders, not too many and not too little. More people means more fun but too big a group means less information the guide can provide as he needs to take care of your safety. Our largest group ever was 17 riders from New Zealand and while riding we divided into four groups with four guides came on the trip plus a support truck. Below is how this group looked like on our September 2013 ride.

You can start a ride and we post an update on our update page to get more people for you. In reality, this type of trip usually has riders with different riding experiences (from novice to competent off-road riders). In case you care about strangers in the group, you’d better book a strictly private tour.

    Hey everybody,
    my Name is Max, I’m 21 years old currently living in Germany and looking forward on my trip to Vietnam from 14th of March until the 9th of April.
    At first I’ll spend some time in Ho-Chi-Minh and Phu Qouc, before I’ m heading to Hanoi on March 26th.
    Now here’s my question:
    I red a lot about two wheel trips through Vietnam, also about the danger that comes with such an experience, but I’d really love to join one of your groups.
    Since my fligh back to Germany goes again from Ho-Chi-Minh I’d like to join a tour from Hanoi to Ho-Chi-Minh. I’m an very open minded guy so I’ve no problem joining a group of friends going the same route.
    Do you have any experience of people joining trips like these on their own? I don’t have any experience driving a motor cycle (only cars) but I’d join the lessons you give.
    Is it even possible to join an existing group?
    Is there a tour from 27th of March until 6th of April from Hanoi to Saigon?
    And if so, how much would it cost (renting and hotel/motel etc.)
    Thanks in advance for your time,

    Max 🙂

      Hello Max. Unfortunately, we are based in Hanoi only (Northern Vietnam) and can’t provide anything form the Southern part of Vietnam. In addition we are booked up for the dates you provided and sadly can’t assist you this time. Good luck with your research.
