VIETNAM MOTORBIKE TOURS, MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURES, DIRT BIKE RIDES & SCOOTER HOLIDAYS FROM HANOI. GUIDED OR UNGUIDED
This website is part of Offroad Vietnam Motorbike Tours based in Hanoi, Northern Vietnam.
Many people asked us if we only provide Vietnam motorbike tours off-road and the answer is “not just that“. Vietnam Offroad and Offroad Vietnam are our registered trade names and they don’t mean we only offer dirt biking. In fact, we ride on a variety of roads, from rough roads, gravel roads, single tracks, goat tracks to sealed roads. We use dual enduro and sport touring motorbikes, no motocross so extreme dirt biking is not available. Roads in Vietnam have been upgrading and the quality is getting better and better. We still ride on many hidden roads, back roads and local goat tracks many people don’t know. Let us show you a another Vietnam that most tourists to Vietnam never see.
Motorcycling is by far the best way to explore Vietnam, but it’s not for the faint of heart
We take every detail seriously, considering like we are in your position. With us you have a choice from the widest range of motorbike adventures in Hanoi. This also means our prices work with a very wide budget range (15$US – 249$US/day) depending on the types of bikes and tours you would like to book. Our goal is to offer the best quality of services and show YOU a REAL VIETNAM. Below are three different motorbike tour packages we provide, all run by the professional staff and guides. We can provide a trip regardless of how experienced you are, a riding lesson is a must if you don’t ride a motorbike before or just ride one for a few hours before you come to Vietnam.
1. Fully guided Vietnam motorcycle adventures for riders who just pay everything in advance, leave everything behind to us and enjoy the trip. You simply experience Vietnam your way while we work. We select the best food where we ride and comfortable places to stay.
You can have some ideas about our spending at this link.
2. Semi-guided Vietnam motorbike tours (bikes & a guide) through Vietnam. You have freedom of eating whatever you want, staying wherever you like and set your own pace. Everything will be easy when you have a guide, no worry about information, directions and bike problems etc.
From our experience people tend to save when they pay spending on the road. This is not worth it. See the link above about our spending on fully guided motorbike trips that we pay in order to have fresh and delicious food (not chemically frozen!), comfortable places to stay and a great trip. You get what you pay for. Naturally, people likely eat more when they are paid by us and save when they pay by themselves.
3. Self-guided Vietnam motorbike tours will be your new adventure away from the norm, a journey rather than a trip! If you are on a budget and can handle anything thrown at you, consider an independent self-guided motorbike (125-250cc) and motor-scooter vacation (bike rentals).
We provide basic and helpful information plus advice and tips, not just hiring the bikes.
4. Scooter rentals for short-term and long-term expat stays in Hanoi.
We have been providing near new or latest model of scooters in Hanoi. Only genuine Honda products, no other brands or Chinese fakes. Please take these details into account when you decide which bike to hire, ask about bike model and year of manufacturing don’t just look at prices. Our rates are competitive and the quality is best.
If you need more reference about our business, then check out what the professionals said. Our services were highly recommended in the Lonely Planet 2009, 2012 and 2014 edition as well as many international magazines, newspapers and travel books about motorcycling in Asia. Please follow this link for more details.
Last but not least, we support local business and communities through guided and semi-guided motorcycle excursions by bringing groups to local finest restaurants, hotels and homestays. This contributes directly your Dollars to aid poor families, eating delicacies and hotels to improve life of local people in remote areas where few tourism activities exist. Come and give a supporting hand together with us. Our professional Vietnam motorbike tours focus on safety, quality of services and customers’ experience and satisfaction. We don’t provide cheap backpacker logistics because it’s hard to wake up fresh and healthy after a riding day if you try to save some money and have low quality services.
Road/ Sport Touring Motorcycles & Semi-automatic or Fully automatic Scooters
All small off-road motorbikes, road touring motorcycles and scooters (110-125cc) are 2013-2015 latest Japanese Honda models for our Vietnam motorbike tours and rentals in Hanoi. We discontinued all older 110-125cc motorbikes that many shops in Hanoi still use. Scooters are only for long term rentals in Hanoi as a commuter. These models are very reliable. We in fact encourage our customers to choose these bikes because they are just fine for Vietnamese traffic.
All 250cc off-road dual enduro bikes are Japanese Honda XR250’s and XR250 Bajas, were made between 1998 and 2005, owned and serviced by ourselves. They are among the best dual enduro bikes you can find in Hanoi. Due to age, these bikes are recommended for people who know mechanic repairs, if you just know how to ride it’s not enough. In fact, we mainly provide 250cc bikes when our guides come on your motorbike tours.
Note: None of our bikes is ideal for riding two up because small bikes have small and skinny seat. As you probably know for large foreigners, entry bike is from 650cc so don’t expect much from a bike under 250cc. If you choose to ride two up, expect some discomfort and stop very often or buy extra cushion. We are honest about bike conditions and if you want freedom of mind, book a guided tour and our guide takes care of the bikes.
