(Mike Driggers reviews of 8 days on Honda dirt bike 250cc adventure, ~1,300 km)
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
For this group the tempo was perfect, this is to say fairly fast for the road conditions and traffic but safe for the groups riding skills. It was brisk enough for everyone but still allowed time for enjoying the sites and people.
Bikes and equipment
I had the largest bike offered by Off Road Vietnam and for me, it was the best choice. In fact, I am about 6’2” and weigh around 300 pounds, so I needed the extra power and suspension offered on the 250. I had no issues other than a flat about 22 kilometers out of Hanoi on our last day. The guides repaired the flat in record time and we rolled on into town.
All of the accommodations were good to excellent but the home stays were the best for me. I did like our first home stay the best it was in a stilt home with a wonderful family that I will never forget (How May Do). An inside joke!
The food was wonderful everything exceeded my expectations with a lot of variety.
Guide and organisation
Our guides were excellent. Their personalities and style truly added to the experience, I cannot say enough about Thoi and Luan, when I get a chance to go back I will certainly request their services again.
Given today’s economy, this was an excellent value.
