Brief info about the tour:
On this “Motorbiking in Northwest Vietnam” road trip we’ll be riding into the heart of Vietnam’s mysterious mountainous, Northern Highlands. Known as the roof of Indochina, this area is home to spellbinding scenery. From the fertile flood plains of the Red River to the remote ethnic minority villages along the Chinese border, from the soaring peaks of the Tonkinese Alps to the lush fields and wooden stilt homes of the limestone foothills; this is a journey that will linger long in your memory. Covering over 1,000km of twisting tarmac, we’ll be spending a lot of quality time on the saddle watching Vietnam’s glorious landscapes pass by. But don’t worry, there will still be plenty of time to make spontaneous stops by the roadside in order to admire in the views, chat to hospitable locals and dine on the region’s famous fresh food (A shot of rice wine is a must try!). This part of Vietnam is populated by dozens of ethnic minority peoples, many of whom still live off the land, using techniques and traditions unchanged in centuries. Famous for their colourful clothes and bustling markets, we’ll have lots of opportunities to interact with these friendly and fascinating people along the way.
Highlights along the route include
-Explore the History and Nightlife of Hanoi
-Experience the Mai Chau Valley
-Northern Highlands, Remote Villages
-Remote Hill Tribes
-High-altitude Climbs, Terraced Rice Fields

This was my first Trip to Vietnam, no better way to see it, than on a motorbike.
No better way to do it, than with Vietnam Motorbike tours.
Your tour guide Bao and his well organised crew will guide you through some of the best sights in Vietnam.
No camera can capture the true beauty of this amazing country.
Cruising through the Villages with the sun on your face, the smell of smokey seafood bbq in the air, with inquisitive smiles from the locals, lets you know the Vietnamese people welcome you.
From the first nights accomidation to the last was first class, there is an endless supply of refreshments accompanied with daily lunches with generous servings that will not disappoint.
Bao and his crew will guide you at a comfortable pace through a country that needs to be seen and felt through your own eyes.
I have fallen in love with Vietmam and the spirit of the Vietnamese, who are truly beautiful people.
The saddest part is leaving, you will have a life changing experience that will live in your heart forever.
Jason, Benwah and the team are incredible! My husband Paul has toured with them in Vietnam and we both toured with them in Cambodia. To say that our motorcycle tours with this amazing company is what inspired us to subsequently travel the world on motorcycles is an understatement… this is where our introduction to and passion for motorcycle touring began! Nothing was too much trouble for the team and our individual needs were paramount throughout. It was simply the most spectacular way to experience Cambodia and Vietnam! The back-up vehicles and support, medical attention at times of need, great accommodation, food and fun, fun, fun! It was simply superb! We learned a great deal about the local history and were particularly inspired in Cambodia to support Global Village Housing and purchase a home for a family in need. This organization is not just about providing a great motorcycle tour experience but also about empowering the local communities through which you travel and you leave wiser and richer for the experience. I cannot recommend the team highly enough! Thank you for awesome memories guys, you are appreciated.
Great way to see the country, Jason and Ben did a great job trying to give us the best Experience they could . Good accommodation.
