We have just completed the 3 Day HCM - Mui Ne Vespa Tour and we loved every exciting minute of it! Our group comprised 3 women and 4 men and from our first meeting with Steve and his team we were made to feel completely at ease as we were given an overview of the bikes and our first lesson on how to enjoy our time on the roads in Vietnam. The men all chose Vintage Vespa’s and the women were more than happy with their choice to ride the alternative automatics. After catching a ferry to Vung Tau, the real fun began. I can quite honestly say that riding a motorbike in Vietnam was the most exhilarating & awesome experience. Day 1 was spent laughing our heads off at ourselves, each other, and the hilarity that is Vietnam roads, all the while pinching ourselves that we were really here doing this. Our guide Walter was a wealth of information and took us to those off the beaten track locations that many tourists don’t have the privilege of visiting. The tour was totally professional from start to finish and our support vehicle was immediately on hand to fix any minor issue that arose. The accommodation and meals on the trip were excellent and set the standard for the remainder of our time in this wonderful country. To any women who are wondering if this trip is really suitable for females, the answer is absolutely! You will not be disappointed and you do not need to have had previous riding experience to enjoy this type of adventure travel. This trip has ignited in us a desire to do more bike travelling in the future and we hope to come back with the kids and do the 7 Day Tour in a couple of years.
