(Mitch Andrew reviews of 10 days on Honda XR250 adventure, ~1,500 km)
Fantastic trip, everyone is very welcoming and the beer is cheap.
Tempo of the tour and the stop-over
Very good, riding 150 – 200 km a day, we saw so much of North West Vietnam whilst frequently stopping for photos and drinks, still arriving at our Hotel or Home stay mid afternoon for a refreshing beer.
Bikes and equipment
Very glad we took the XR 250 bikes as it enabled us to take routes other bikes couldn’t. Had the expected break down like a flat tyre but were back on the road within 10 minutes.
Mix of home stays and Hotels was good. We weren’t fussy when it came to sleeping but if you like your comforts, you’d probably find some of the mattresses hard. Mr. Boi from our last home stay was our favorite host, making sure we had plenty of rice wine and taking us out on his boat for the afternoon.
The best Asian food I’ve had, always plenty of food for us “buffet” style on the table and very rarely any left as it was so good. If there’s anything you like or dislike, simply tell the guide.
Guide and organisation
Anh is very professional always answering my emails within an hour of sending them. We couldn’t have asked for better from our guide. He was just like one of the mates from the first day. Everyone spoke very good English which makes it easy.
I found it very reasonable when you consider the amount of inclusions. ie. food, accommodation, petrol.
