Free Tour to Vietnam anyone?
« on: February 27, 2018, 03:31:59 am »
Hey guys!

Anyone here interested in some off-road biking in the mountainous regions of Northern Vietnam?

 Me and my girlfriend have been driving these routes the past 3 years while working and have finally decided to start an adventure biking company. We would like to invite anyone that is interested to join us on a tour through some of the most beautiful scenery while experiencing an amazing culture at cost price. I'll send anyone that is interested a detailed Itinerary and a breakdown of all costs.

If you are interested you could also check our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OpenRoadToursSEA

 All we ask is for some honest reviews and some word of mouth advertising if the time presents it as we are super passionate about getting our company of the ground.

Thanks for the response!

Lots of caves, waterfalls, mountains, rivers, secluded towns and rice fields to see. We've also got a wide variety of bikes available! But don't stress the Vietnamese are quite short so you will have no problem at all. If you send me your contact details I can email you the Itinerary, range of bikes and all general info regarding the tour!

@corne.l, to be fair, it does say "Free Tour", not free accommodation and transport.

@Tony the Boney Come along - a lost alien in Vietnam will add flavour to my ride report :biggrin:

Hahaha Technically the whole tour is not free no. But I thought it would grab some attention from you guys. Also, Vietnam has some crazy beautiful roads and mountains. I'm willing to do the work if you guys are willing to fly over here. Beer is on me the first night ;)

I don't think so. That being said, I think its safe not to believe a 690 or 1200GS is waiting there for you either

That is a picture of my Lifan 150cc!! I built it myself from spares lying around the garage and then decided to take it up Ta Xua mountain. On the way up my right foot pedal even broke off and I had to weld it on again at the top. Needless to say its a piece of shit. The rental bikes are all 2017 Honda CFR250L's. You dont need any bigger in Vietnam.
