Compliment: Offroad Vietnam
My friend and I took an 11-day tour of Ha Giang with Offroad Vietnam in January 2012 along with 3 others (an Aussie couple and German gent). I can honestly say it was totally fantastic and exceeded my exceptions. The company is very well run and prior to booking, they answered all questions very quickly and professionally. The trip was well organised and paced very well to get lots of riding through this magnificent country without being too much. But it is an adventure holiday so expect to be tired and a little sore at the end of every day but happy and looking forward to the next days riding.
The best thing about the holiday was to get off the beaten track and see the real Vietnam, very few tourists, fantastic landscape, very warm people who were always happy to see us and some great roads with very little traffic so you can really enjoy the riding. As we kept riding after the first couple of wet days every day seemed to get better and better and at the end didn’t want to go back to Hanoi!
We went in Winter so it was cooler than I expected and we had some rain for the first 3 days so bring wet gear (boots and gloves particularly) and some warm riding gear and you’ll be sweet.
I will hopefully be back again in the future in Autumn time to see the rice paddies in flower. Five Stars from me.
