Phung Van Hai,, was born in 1984. He studied at Hanoi Open University-Faculty of Tourism from 2002 to 2007.

Hanoi Open University is regarded to be one of the best Universities to study tourism in Vietnam.

This experience has placed him in high regard by his peers, as being one of the most knowledgeable motorcycle tour guides in Vietnam.

He loves to introduce this beauty to others from around the world, especially the remote areas of the highland that showcases spectacular mountains, challenging roads, and traditional customs of various ethnic groups. The most simple, but also most effective way to discover this beauty, is to travel via a motorcycle, and that is how We Ride Vietnam Tours was born.

We never stop searching for new experiences, destinations, roads, and new regions in order to create a unique travel option for our clients. We pride ourselves on being different to other tour groups, always striving to bring new and real experiences to you.

Our Guides: All our guides are Vietnamese people who were born and have grown up in Vietnam. We speak fluent English and are competent riders who are able to give you the best experience about the history, culture, customs and habits of Vietnamese people. Over several years we have gained extensive knowledge of hundreds of tracks, trails, and back roads throughout Vietnam. Moreover our guides also act as your mechanic, translator, mentor, problem solver and party organizer.

Our Service: Once on tour we cover all costs except for alcohol, so you don’t need to spend any money on the road. We want you to just relax and enjoy the experience of riding with us whether it be a small or large group.

The options featured on our web site are just a sample of what we have to offer. All of our tours can be fully customized to meet your needs and desires. Please don’t hesitate to ask us about custom tours.

Our Tours Are Private: Personalized tours or custom tours will often be a little more expensive than scheduled or “join in” group tours. These tours however, will be more flexible, private, and exclusive to only you, your family and friends. Let your individual wishes drive you holiday, rather than those of a group.

Our Promise Of Safety: Safety is paramount, not only for our clients but also for our tour guide.

Which season is the best time to ride in Vietnam ?

Every season in Vietnam has its own beauty and unique colour. Spring is from February to April and you will see different shades of green everywhere in the north. This is usually the best time to ride.

Summer lasts for approximately 5 months through to the end of November. It is also the rainy season.

The scenery in the mountains is both colourful and diverse and that is when the rice harvest takes place. September and October you will see stunning views of the rice terraces where the whole landscape turns yellow. The experience is amazing.

Winter starts from mid November and lasts until early February.

How can I meet you in Hanoi or somewhere else ?

You should book your own hotel in Hanoi , you can try websites like * they have competitive prices with what you can book in person. We will meet you and take you to our office where you will be briefed on the tour schedule.

Can you book me a hotel in Hanoi?

We can book you any hotel in Hanoi or in any other city that you request. We recommend a standard hotel (2-3) stars in order to save costs. The rates are usually $30-$50 USD per night.

We can also arrange airport welcome pickup and farewell departure to and from hotel, at your request.

How much money should I bring on tour ?

Our Tours are All inclusive, that means we pay for everything on tour except alcohol and personal purchases that you make.

Just as a rule of thumb our experience has shown that you should carry approximately $100 to $200 US or equivalent in Vietnam Dong. However this depends entirely on the length of the ride and is used mainly for your own personal souvenir shopping and alcoholic beverages.

What should I bring for riding in Vietnam ?

We will send you a list of tips that can be useful for your motorbike journey through Vietnam.

Do I need insurance for riding motorbike in Vietnam?

It is strongly recommended that you obtain travel insurance in your own country and include cover for the riding of motorcycles up to 650cc. Make sure it includes health and emergency evacuation coverage.

How far and how long should we ride each day ?

That depends on where you want to go. In the northern mountains a distance of approximately 150-200 kms or 5-6 hours of riding is normal for trip lengths of 2 to 12 days. This also includes trip lengths of 14 days to explore the Northeast and Northwest combined.

Meanwhile the Ho Chi Minh trail tour provides longer distances of 200-300kms or 6-8 hours per day of riding with trip lengths of 10 to 14 days.(depending whether tour ends in Hoi An or Ho Chi Minh city.)

The roads in Vietnam are narrow, busy and very twisty, average speeds are 40-60kmh.  350km is a LONG day in Vietnam, we schedule our rides to be safe and take time to enjoy the people and places along the way.

How can I keep in touch with family and friends while on the ride?

Nowadays in Vietnam, Internet and WiFi coverage is everywhere, even in the deepest valleys and highest hills. You can also buy a SIM card for $5 USD and easily communicate with family and friends.

How do I pay for the tour ?

We will ask you to place a deposit in advance of $300 USD for each person to confirm your booking.

We will provide the bank account details for you to easily transfer the deposit.

I can not ride but still want to join the tour riding ?

Do not worry about that. We will arrange this for you and find a local rider with a wealth of experience and you can sit behind as a pillion passenger. However an additional cost with have to be paid for this person.

Do you accept children on the tour ?

Yes. We can arrange the tour to accommodate the family either in a 16 seat minibus or 4 seat vehicle depending on the number. However you will have to pay extra for car rental.
