I’ve done two cross country bike trips with Luke, both absolutely stunning life experiences. I can’t wait to go back for the next adventure! Both trips started in Hanoi, the first heading west up to the Mountains around Sapa over 5 days, the second headed north towards the Chinese border over 8 days. Immaculately organized and zero hassle from our hotel pick up to hotel drop off. Just pure riding pleasure… You could never find these roads, tracks, villages and home stay locations without local knowledge. The mountain scenes I’d never seen anything the likes of and a bike is the best way to experience it. We covered about 180km a day and the scenery changes so much you can feel like riding through forest on Pandora from Avatar in the morning and a few hours later snaking your way across a rocky lunar landscape. Vietnam is a beautiful and breathtaking country. The traffic in Hanoi is pretty busy but quickly thins out to quiet peaceful mountain twisty roads shared only with friendly kids on their way to school and when passing through villages, with a few cows, pigs, dogs and chickens. Luke was an excellent lead rider keeping this safe and teaching us Vietnam road craft. The 125cc and 250cc bikes were probably the best I saw on the road during both trips and ideal for the riding conditions. We were self-sufficient and carried all our stuff strapped to the bike. I had it all well waterproofed but the weather was great both times and I only spent about an hour with my rain gear on in total. Home stay is definitely the way to go in rural Vietnam. Living, eating and drinking rice wine with local families. Fabulous authentic and plentiful fresh food, no worries for fussy eaters. Accommodation was in traditional buildings and had a simple authentic feel, adding to the experience but was comfortable with hot showers and clean beds etc. If you love riding and are looking for an adventure off the beaten track, get yourself signed up.

I did the tour earlier this year with my brother and cannot speak highly enough of the experience, being an ex biker I have never lost the urge to get on the bike and I am so glad I did it. This is a "bucket list" thing to do and I will definitely be going back to see more of Vietnam. With Luke guiding us we saw parts of Vietnam reserved to the locals. I must say that being a bloke I am not the first to notice scenery but it is simply breathtaking and seeing it on a bike is the only way to do it. I especially enjoyed the mountains as these presented us with vistas unlike anything you will see in your lifetime. We mixed up our accommodation staying one night in what’s called a “home-stay” with the next night in a hotel, the home-stay part puts you in a farm setting which is very often remote but with all of the comforts you would expect; all of the families you stay with prepare the meals and you sit with them having your evening meal as part of the family. If you are going you will need to consider that you carry your own kit on the back of the bike; we had 250cc bikes which were great for the roads and were big enough to lug a fair bit of luggage as well. I had packed waterproofs but only needed them on the first afternoon of an eight day trip and be sure to take your camera as you will want to take pictures of the beautiful countryside. Sturdy footwear is a must but be aware that in the evenings you will need a change of clothes to go to the local hostelry or two when staying in the towns and villages. Luke is an excellent host, guide and now friend – without him to guide us we would have barely scratched the surface of this enchanting country.
