Dear LP,Mr HULME Simon

A short note to recommend the motorcycle tours run by the company Voyage Vietnam, based in Hanoi.

Please feel free to use this recommendation or any part of it as part of the Lonely Planet guide.

Here’s a concise version:
Motorcycle touring with Voyage Vietnam was an excellent way to really see Vietnam and to meet its people, including many of its ethnic minorities, with an excellent guide, tough little bikes and a company whose organisation was second to none.

Here’s a long-assed version:
I did a ten day tour of the north-west of Vietnam with a small group and a guide, all of us on tough little Minsk motorcycles provided by the company.
Our Vietnamese guide was excellent, extremely experienced and knowledgeable and able to translate for us to anyone we encountered, including the many ethnic minority peoples we met.
The bikes were perfect for the job, able to tackle all we threw at them.
We also had several homestays as part of our tour, where our hosts always made us more than welcome.
Voyage Vietnam’s organisation was second to none in all my dealings with them, both before and after the trip.
For experiencing the ‘real’ Vietnam, meeting its people and (perhaps most of all, for me) for being a real part of that unbelievably beautiful scenery day after day, this was an unbeatable trip.

Once again, please feel free to use this recommendation or any part of it as part of the Lonely Planet guide.

Best regards,

Simon Hulme
