(James Ashton reviews of 4 days motorcycle touring, ~550 km)
The tour showed us things that we’d never have seen otherwise. We met people who had never seen a Westerner before! 2 people in our party got sick, and Offroad Vietnam went well out of their way to accommodate us: sending extra guides out to help those who were ill, and we are very grateful!
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
The tour had a great mix of fantastic riding, whilst still allowing plenty of time to check out the local villages in which we stayed.
Bikes and equipment
The bikes were great fun to ride and not so powerful that you missed out on all of the amazing scenery. By Australian standards, these bikes were nothing special, but by Vietnamese standards they were perfect!
The home stays were an amazing way to learn about traditional Vietnamese lifestyles, and the hosts were very welcoming. The only benefit of the hotel is the hot shower, otherwise I’d much prefer the homestays every night!
The food was absolutely delicious. We ate things that I’d never choose off a menu, and they were all sensational. We ate like kings, and there was always food left over.
Our guide, Ngoc, was absolutely sensational. His local and traditional knowledge was amazing, and he was good at re-explaining Vietnamese traditions and cultures. He told us things we’d never think to ask! He always went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. Well beyond any expectation.
For 4 days accommodation, food and petrol, I thought the price was more than reasonable.
