Welcome to the official homepage of Hidden Vietnam Motorcycle Tours, a professional off-road motorbike tour operator based in Hanoi, Northern Vietnam.

For Vietnam’s Covid-19 updates, you can check at this link. In fact, our team is always available even Vietnam tourism is hard hit by this pandemic.

Many Vietnam motorbike tours between 2020 and 2022 were cancelled or suspended. The good news is the Vietnamese border is officially open from March 15th 2022, so let’s get ready and apply for a visa now!

We currently offer three guided off-road Vietnam motorcycle tours below. These tours work with different budgets, timing, and duration. While riding with us, you will discover a hidden Vietnam that is lesser-known between local riders and tourists to Vietnam.

Challenging Off-road Motorbike Tours

These tours are recommended for riders ưith intermediate and experienced levels. We suggest either Honda XR150L, Honda CRF150L or the larger Honda CRF250L. Ride where you want to see and experience a lesser-known Vietnam away from the tourist trails!

Fantastic Motorcycle Tours Of Vietnam

Tours designed for riders with some riding experience (novice) and intermediate bikers. The best motorbikes are either the manual 150cc Honda XR150L or touring scooter Honda Winner 150cc. A bit off-road riding is possible and you will see Vietnam without meeting many tourists!

Easy Motor-Scooter Tours From Hanoi

Specially designed for beginners and novice riders or those who want to ride like local people and at a slow pace. We suggest using either 110cc semi-automatic or 110/125cc fully automatic scooters. Best for sealed and secondary roads in low mountain areas. There are some 50cc scooters available if you worry about a license. However, the power that a 50cc scooter offers is very low, not enough to ride up any steep hill or mountain road.

Hidden Vietnam Motorbike Tours offers Vietnam motorbike tours, motorcycle tours and scooters rentals, either on or off-road with Hidden Vietnam dirt bike tours.


If you want to join one of our existing Vietnam motorcycle tours with places still available please follow this link. We also offer a motorbike driving (riding) lesson for people who have no or little motorcycle riding skills but want to join us. After this 1-2 hours lesson, you will feel much more confident to flow in the Vietnamese traffic river. The cost is 30$US/person.

We’ve been providing Vietnam motorcycle tours and rentals for years. Over time, we have designed many different motorcycle itineraries that cater to any riding experience and tempo you prefer. You can experience adventures on two wheels on manual bikes, dirt bikes, or even scooters. In fact, there is no need to follow any set itinerary because you will decide with the guide for any better change you think.
