Why we are different

All of our guided motorbike tours include an English speaking guide out front and a mechanic acting as a sweeper in the back. On the road if you want to stop to take photos, enjoy the scenery or meet people along the way, no problem. You don’t have to worry about keeping up with the group or missing a turn, you can travel at your own pace. We travel this way to keep the group safe and be there in-case of anything goes wrong. We don’t cut corners on our bikes, your safety, your food or accommodations. With a group of 8 or more riders we include a support vehicle no extra charge. Find our more about international licensing, comprehensive damage insurance and personal insurance options. Contact us for group tour discount.

We take the overnight train for the following reasons:

We want to spend the most time on tour driving through Vietnam’ mountains instead of spending the last day of your ride on the flat, busy highway back to Hanoi.

The roads closer to Hanoi and its suburbs’ are busy and dangerous. Trucks, buses, cars and other motorbikes make the entry back in to Hanoi during rush hour a nerve racking experience.

At the Lao Cai Train station, we have a guest house to take a shower, eat a nice meal and have a few beers with your friends to decompress after the ride, the train compartments are 4 berth soft sleepers with A/C. The train departs Lao Cai at 8:30pm and arrives in Hanoi at 6:30am.

You save money because you don’t have to pay for a hotel room in Hanoi on the last day of the ride.

We put the motorbikes in the baggage car of the train and make our way back to Hanoi. When we arrive in Hanoi we collect the bikes from the train and drive through the quiet streets of Hanoi as the city wakes up to our garage (approx. 15 min.). There we park the bikes and transfer you to hotel or arrange airport transfer (garage is aprox. 40min to Airport).
