My husband rented a Suzuki DRZ400 from Flamingo Travel for 5 days in November, and we had a great adventure on our own riding around Hanoi and the outskirts, and overnight to Ninh Binh to visit Tam Coc and Phat Diem Cathedral. It was very easy to rent the motorcycle on the internet from Flamingo, and correspondence was easily handled by e-mail. They were very helpful answering our questions before we arrived. The rental process itself was very smooth and professional and picking up the bike was easy. The mechanic provided a bag of spare parts and went over what was provided and what might need to be repaired. We rode around Hanoi, and outside into the surrounding area (Bat Trang village to the east, Chua Thay pagoda to the SW) and had a great time being part of the mayhem that is Hanoi traffic. The bike was excellent on the ride down to Ninh Binh, as QL1 disintegrates into dirt road and off-road conditions in a number of places between Hanoi and Ninh Binh. The big bike attracted a lot of attention, and it was great fun talking to people about it and our gear. The motorcycle, while an older model, was very well maintained and ran great, no need for the spare parts. This was our third trip to Vietnam (4th for my husband) and truly the best experience yet. Returning the bike was very easy, all the paperwork was in order and our deposit returned with no problems. We would definately rent again from Flamingo Travel, they are a great resource.

Amazing motorcycle trip on Ho Chi Minh trail Vietnam. 12 days tour from Hanoi to Saigon.
Unbelievable experience thanks for Flamingo Travel motorcycle tour operator for great organization. Especially huge Thanks for our guide Mr. Pinkie being our Papa and Mama :-) during all our trip. Best selection of the places to eat and sleep done by him made our trip very relaxed :-) Very friendly guy and have a best sense of humor Vietnamese can get :-)
If somebody have a plan to hit Vietnam roads ( offloads) by motorbike I honestly recommend to get in touch with Flamingo Travel !!!

we did one tour with them last year, afterwards we rent the bike from them and do it ourselves.

It may by the best shop with best service in town. Bike are good and service is good.
Do biking is the best way to explore the vietnamese country side.
Do not forget the tow cable since you might need it on the way.

I did the 3 day Hanoi-Tam Coc-Cuc Phoung tour which included the motorbike training school all for a very reasonable price. The bikes and guides (Pinky & Huy) were really nice and the accommodation and food were all spot on. This is a great way to see a different part of Vietnam and when I return to Hanoi I will definitely book another tour with Flamingo hopefully up north this time.

I wasn't an experienced motorbike driver but the guides were very patient and attentive, saw some great scenery although the weather wasn't great. And considering I was on a strict backpackers budget it was very affordable. Thanks alot guys

I've been traveling in Vietnam from South to North for 1.5 month and motorcycle trip to Sapa was a biggest highlight of it.
I rented Minsk motorcycle from Flamingo Travels (actually it's new SYM motor bike, much better than Minsk) and we took Route 6 up North to Sapa. Road can be very demanding for driver and especially for Motorcycle. Everyday I wrote in my journal gratitudes to guys over flamingo for keeping motorbikes in perfect order, didn't have any problem with mine even after 8 days of mountain riding. On top of them they helped me to plan our trip, put it on the map and gave us list of places where we could stay overnight, you don't have to follow, but it's a good safety net.
Anyway, I wanted to travel by motorcycle for a long time and finally my dream came thru thanxxx to Flamingo!
