Frequently Asked QuestionsExpand/Close
All our tours are open for others to join in, unless you have booked a private tour.
The minimum size for us to be able to organize a tour is 2 people. We generally like to keep the groups to about 12 motorcycles/riders. This is a comfortable number of men and machines for a tour leader to handle and to ensure each person gets the attention they deserve. Safety is our main concern and as you can imagine bikes can start to get strung out over quite a large distance if there are too many, reducing the tour leader’s ability to keep everyone in his or her field of vision.
Vietnam Moto Tours can/has and will gladly organize tours for larger groups if necessary.
Of course it is! One of the great things about any tour of this kind are the friendships you will form with not only the tour leader, but also the other adventurous souls out there with you. When possible, we try to link individuals together. The more advance warning, the better.
We organize our motorcycle tours all over Vietnam, so we can start at/from any destination we listed in our website.
The minimum age required to operate a motorcycle by Vietnam Moto Tours (or Vietnam Government) is 18 but no one is too young or old for the adventure.
