Our Vietnam motorbike tours prices for each itinerary might be very different from the others. In general, the number of people in the group, means of transportation or type of bike and your specific expectations are the deciding factors.
Offroad Vietnam offers three types of motorbike adventures. From fully guided, semi-guided to self-guided that cater for any budget from 15$US/person/day to 219$US/person/day. In case you want to enjoy Vietnam in a different way and have a total freedom of mind, book a fully guided trip. However, if you travel on a budget then consider a semi-guided tour or just bike hire on a self-guided adventure.
Our professional guides make a very big difference and with him, you will see a REAL VIETNAM off the tourist trails!
We don’t offer the cheapest Vietnam motorbike tours prices in Hanoi, but we guarantee to deliver the best balance of cost/quality. If you still hesitate, check out how satisfied our customers felt after the rides.

Semi-guided Vietnam Motorbike Tours Prices
[ tour details ]
In addition the bike rental above, you will have a professional guide. He’s also a handy mechanic, a leader and a translator which adds much more value to the whole experience. Many of our unguided tour customers regretted not hiring a guide. People in the countryside didn’t speak much English or they didn’t understand what the people said. In addition, their traditions and customs were different. In some cases, they even had to deal with some dishonest mechanics.
The guide rides the same type of bike as you and his salary + his bike is 100$US per day and per group of up to five riders. For example, if you are two people wanting to hire two Honda XR125’s and a guide then you pay 150$US per day for two people plus spending on the tour.
While on the road, just pay everything for yourselves and the guide plus fuel for the bikes. In the end, it’s usually not much cheaper than a fully guided tour below. But some people want flexibility on their trips and this is the way to go.
Including: Bike(s), a professional English-speaking tour guide, a small map of North Vietnam, tool-kit and important spare parts (~3kg), flat tire fix and bike maintenance, advice and tips based on your rough itinerary.

Food & Accommodation
Vietnamese food is famous worldwide! Pho is the first thing you learn about. Fresh ingredients, subtle spices and exciting menus highlight the perfect time to wind down after a great day’s riding or driving.
We are familiar with all the regional specialities. When you ride with us, we will order the most delicious and fresh local food for you. However, you pay extra if you want Western food. You ride in Vietnam, so there is no reason to order Western food here.
Any tour will involve a wide variety of accommodation and will include a mixture of hotels, motels, guest-houses and private home stays. As we tour through remote areas of a developing country, accommodation is not five-star. Nevertheless, everywhere we stay is clean, comfortable and with the best standard available. You are in Vietnam not for luxury, but for a different experience.
First, none of the foreign licenses is valid in Vietnam, including your country license. There are conflicting reports about this but the reality is unfortunately not a good news.
However, the good news is IDP (international driving permit issued under 1968 Convention) is now valid in Vietnam from August 1st 2016 with the 46/2016/ND-CP decree. You can purchase an insurance policy easily when you have an IDP. Please also bring your home country driving license with motorbike endorsement.
In case you have no IDP or Vietnamese driving license, the police rarely stop you to check license unless you do something wrong. It’s more to do with personal medical insurance that we cover below.
This is another very important thing for planning your Vietnam motorbike tours.
We don’t require any sort of license to book a trip but it’s more about insurance. Most of the insurance companies don’t provide a policy that covers a motorbike tour accident if you don’t have a Vietnamese driving license. Sadly, it’s impossible to get a Vietnamese license with a tourist visa. You need a business visa of at least three months, a work permit, a sponsor company and a valid passport. All these documents should be translated into Vietnamese at a notary office and a license will be issued after 7 or 10 days. It’s just too complicated and time-consuming. With just a normal personal medical insurance you will still be covered about 19 hours a day when not riding because we only ride about 5 hours a day on average. Some companies like CHI Insurance, World Nomads and Allianz didn’t require a local driving license and covered larger displacements.
Even Vietnam doesn’t recognize any foreign license (except IDP) but take it easy you will be ok. We don’t require a license to join our tours or hire our bikes. More details are at this link.
Passport & Visa
You must carry your passport with you at all times during the ride. Also, you must have a visa for Vietnam valid for the duration of the tour. When checking in hotels, we need to register with local police every night.
Please contact us for more extensive terms and conditions. We accept no responsibility for any accident or injury, lost or damaged baggage occurring during the tour.
