You should know mechanic basics and can manage things on the road. The costs of bike hire are between 15$US and 35$US per day and per bike.

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 for 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 world-wide! 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 specialties. 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.

Travel Documents

Licensing Issues

First, none of 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) 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.

Insurance

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 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.

Contact

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.

    Hello,

    I will be in Hanoi on April 4. I would like to travel from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh with the bike (partly through Cambodscha) is it possible to buy one of the bikes? I would sell it in Ho Chi Minh again.

    Or is there even a possibility to return it? (If you have a shop there as well)

    Thanks for your answer and best regards.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Andres. How long would you want to rent a bike for? Currently only a Honda XR125 or CGL125 is available. If you pay full amount for a bike then we can deduct rental money and refund in HCMC. Cash can be done in VND. Sadly, we have no shop down there.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Arie. Sadly, your duration of touring is too short while the number of riders too many. We are not able to offer anything for such a large group and short time.

    Hi Anh Wu

    We are trying to rice up our Ho Chi Minh 9 day trail, in your lists of what is not included in the price
    Bike shipping and tour guide’s travel back to Hanoi (for Ho Chi Minh trail/road trips or tours that don’t end in Hanoi); How much is this please?

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Pip. You asked us about bike hire before and if you ride one-way then sadly we don’t rent bikes this way. If you do a guided trip the prices include this travel back to base. Based on a group of three, an all-inclusive trip starts from 159$US/day/person.

  4. Ant Reply

    Hey there. We’re four and interested in taking 2 full day trips semi or fully guided the last week end of October. 2 of us are experienced and two begginers (no biking license). Is there availability? And would that be an issue?
    Thank you

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Ant. You could book a private 2-day tour to Mai Chau. There are about 27 people die on the roads in Vietnam everyday on average and most are motorcyclists. Vietnam is NOT a place to learn how to ride a motorbike and we suggest you ride two up, beginners should ride pillion. The dates work for us and the cost is from 130$US/day to 170$US/day for 4 people (bike and guide hire). You pay things on the road for four of you, our guide and the bikes. If this looks good we will send you more options of bikes and trip details.

  5. Montie Ho Sing Reply

    I am arriving in Hanoi on Sun Apr 19 and want to do a fully guided tour for 6 -10 days – the areas typical of Ha Giang is of interest.
    I have extensive 20year+ off road riding experience and also road riding in Africa and Asian countries.
    I am mechanically competent at maintaining motorcycles and can also replace/ repair tyres tubes.
    I am 1.73 m tall and 90kg aged 59 but fit and healthy. I am still riding my road and off road motorcycles.
    I am travelling alone and do not understand your pricing structure – If I join other riders in your tour do I still get charged at the single rate? Also the guide costs are split into portions of the size of the group determined at the time of departure?
    Since I have almost 3 weeks – I can wait for a departure date after 20th April to allow you to get a group together.
    Is there a maximum size of group? Ideally I would want to travel in a group of 5-8 including guide.

  8. Mari Fleri Reply

    Hi,
    I’ll be in Hanoi about mid Nov. I’m interested in joining a 5 day motorbike tour, but have NO experience and may be safer for me to ride on the back of one (I weigh 50kg). Do you cater for this, or does everyone ride their own bike?

    Mari

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Mari,

      Unfortunately, we are booked out through November and have no availability for your dates. In addition, we target riders who could ride a manual clucth motorbike and have experience before they ride with us. Therefore, we are not able to assist this time.

      Please let us know if we could assist you in any other way.

      Offroad Vietnam team.

  9. John Carter Reply

    Do you have a guided tour in early January, I will be on my own but wish to join a group.

    • Anh Wu Reply

    Hello,
    I would like to rent a bike for 5 days (1-6 October). I plan to make a self guided loop tour from Hanoi and would appreciate if you could recommend a nice itinerary. I know we want to have a 2 days HaLong bay cruise and also visit mountainous views and hill tribes villages.
    Could you please recommend a tour?

    thanks

    Guy

    • Anh Wu Reply
