We have a list of frequently asked questions and answers about our Easy Rider Tours. We strive to give you the best experience possible. Click a question below to view the answer.

Please be informed that our tours are fully inclusive (accommodation, tour guide, motorcycle rental, helmet, gas, protection gears, waterproof bags/raincoat and entry fees), and what you need to pay is just your own food and drinks. So you can completely focus on your holiday, the sense of adventure and freedom. There are no hidden costs or other surprises during the ride with us!

We require you to deposit 20% from the total cost to ensure your days traveling with us, and the balance must be paid when we meet and start the trip from the start point of your choice. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit and debit cards if it is convenient for you.

We recommend you to reserve in advance to avoid the disappointment. Reservations help us determine the number of guides we need to ensure that our groups remain manageable and enjoyable, and they allow us to notify you of changes to the tour due to weather or anything that could disturb the tours. However, you can show up at our our office and if we still have tour guides/ motorcycles available by that time, then we can make the trip happens!

Yes, we organize guided motorcycle tours for individuals or small groups so that the trip can be flexible, tailored and able to meet our guests' expectations. Therefore, please don't hesitate to contact us and book your tour as you could experience more when you are alone. 

However, if you want to join others for the tour, then please provide us the exact date, start point and destination, we will then put you with others.

If you ride pillion on the back of the tour guide's motorbike, then you don't need to have driving license or experience. You can just sit back, relax, enjoy and take million photos! ;)

If you drive the motorbike by yourself, then a valid national driving permit or a valid license with motorbike amendment from your home country. That is all required, because you are on a guided motorbike tour with us.

Our motorbike tours are not in a race. We travel slowly so that you could enjoy the scenic landscape, experiece the rich cultures of ethnic minority groups and make sure you won't miss any photo opportunities during the ride. We usually ride about 120 - 160 kilometers daily. Our goal is to help you to enjoy the motorcycle ride like we do and to take in as much of the local cultures as possible. It’s a trip of a life time, we don’t want you to miss anything!

If you are pillion passenger, then we put your luggage (rucksack) in waterproof bags and strap nicely on the back of our motorcycle. You are able to lean back comfortably when we travel. And if you travel with suitcases and they are too heavy to carry on the bike, then we can send them to our last destination, we then collect them when we arrive.

If you are a group of self riders (more than 4 riders), we will provide a support van to take your luggage, eski for your cold drinks.

We drive on the right-hand side as in United State of America or Canada. All speed limits are in km/h, 30-50 for towns, 50 for suburbs and 70 for major (A) roads and dual carriageways. The way we travel is to get off the bustles of the cities and ride to the countryside or rugged mountains so there are often kids, dogs, buffaloes, chickens, etc., kicking around in the country roads..

Therefore, if you ride by yourself and if you see the tour guide using brake, there’s a good reason, and you should use it, too! Many Vietnamese ignore the typical unwritten rules of road positioning and merging you are used to in the West. So rule number 1 is "follow your tour guide" and rule number 2 is "follow rule number 1"! ;)

We will be riding a Suzuki En Sporty Naked Bike, one of the best motorcycle touring available in Vietnam. 

We also have the Honda XR150L for riding off road as the latest edition to our fleet. The cost to rent one of our motorcycles is included in the price of the tour.

Please note: When you are in a group of riders, motorcycle riding on our tours is arranged in a convoy formation, with a tour guide leader in the front and support vehicle at the rear. No independent riding is allowing during the tour.

 

Our Easy Riders Tours are really flexible, we are able to start and finish the trip anywhere you require, such as: hotel, bus station, railway station, airport or even at a cafe! ;). For the self-ride tours, we need to start from a place where the motorcycles are or a where we can take down our motorcycles from the truck.

Clothing, swimming suits, toilet bag, sturdy shoes, your passport, money, sunscreen and something for the mosquitoes. We recommend you to wear long pants/trousers and shoes (not thongs). Drinking water bottles can be purchased en route.

Food and drinks are pretty cheap in Vietnam, and we don't travel to the big cities but the countryside of Vietnam so it's even cheaper than you expect. You might spend $12 US per person per day, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and soft drinks (not alcohol drinks though! ;))

Easy Riders Vietnam is not liable for any loss or damage caused to users of its travel services in this region. We therefore strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling. You should check any exclusions, and that your policy covers you for the activities you want to undertake.

Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate. The best time to travel in Vietnam is during the dry season, which runs approximately from November to February. And of course you can visit Vietnam outside of these months, only count on high(er) temperatures and the occasional tropical rain shower.

Please note: the dry season does not guarantee clear blue skies. It might still rain and storm heavily. Particularly, in the Central Highlands, the weather is unpredictable! It might shower heavily and then stop in 10 minutes.

Vietnamese people prefer to be paid by cash (in Vietnam Dong). You can check the exchange rate between your country currency and Vietnam Dong HERE. You don't need to exchange your money in advance or bring a lot of cash to Vietnam as you are able to withdraw cash at the ATMs which are available everyday on our tours.
