(Mr. Thomas Mowery reviews of 7 days Central North, Honda XL250, ~1,200 km)
I could not have had a better experience with Offroad Vietnam, as they guided me through a 7-day motorbike trip through rural North Vietnam. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
The riding was at a slow pace, which was ideal for my skill level. The first couple days of biking were a bit longer than I preferred, but I suppose you have to put miles between you and Hanoi somehow.
Bikes and equipment
I was very pleased with the condition of the bike and equipment.
Accommodations were great, with the exception of the first 2 nights – they were OK. I especially enjoyed the hotel in Sapa and the homestays. I would have preferred to have done more home stays, if possible.
I felt the food was great throughout the trip – I especially appreciated Lee ensuring that I didn’t eat any crazy food that would make me sick.
Guide and organisation
The trip was very well organized with perhaps the exception of the very long day of riding on Day 2, but perhaps this can’t be avoided. Overall Lee was great – I really appreciated his expertise and his company. My only complaint about the guide was that, at times.
