Since our groups never have more than 10 travelers, we stay in small, authentic accommodations that can’t take large tour groups. MTB Vietnam offers basic amenities and simple comforts with an emphasis on the character of your destination because it depends on the place you are staying in each destination, home-stay or small hotels. But actually, the hotels in our programs are 2-3 star ones with standard and deluxe rooms with wifi and warm shower. If you choose a basic tour, you will share in a twin-room.
The cost you pay for your trip includes everything related to your tour which we mention in each specific tour on our MTBVietnam.Com webpage!
We have designed a range of tours to suit every kind of cyclist from off road mountain biking in Vietnam and cycling in Laos. All level can join our cycling trips!
Vietnam is a long country with several distinct climatic zones. The best time to take our bike tour is December – March, which is the Vietnamese winter. November is also a good time although you might strike the end of the monsoon season and have one or two wet days.
In the Far North of Vietnam, March – May or October – December are the best times to visit (January and February, which are the height of winter, can be too cold).
The winds from January on will mostly come from the north, so it is best to bike from the north to the south. The wind is not so strong in November/December.
We strongly recommend you take out travel, accident, medical, baggage and cancellation insurance. Medical Evacuation insurance is compulsory in Vietnam and India.
For New Zealand, you can purchase travel insurance from Southern Cross Travel Insurance.
For Australia, you can compare travel insurance policies.
For Vietnam, check your medical policy to see if Medivac type air transport is included in your policy (or Aflac type supplemental policy) first. If not you can buy medical insurance only at Access America or CSA Travel Protection.
A full cancellation policy is the only way to cover yourself for any problem that may happen before the trip.
