I have done two ten day Chinese border crawls with Digby from explore Indochina in the past 18 months and both trips were absolutely excellent. I can thoroughly recommend this operator to anyone with at least some dirt biking experience who wants to see parts of Vietnam seldom visited by locals, let alone westerners. Accommodation on tour is a mix of very good hotels and friendly local homestays, and the Minsk motorbikes are perfectly suited to the conditions. The days are loosely planned so if there's a big night on the beers you can relax and do some easy tarmac riding, or if you're up for it Digby will use his gps and 20 years of local knowledge to go well and truly off the beaten track. Its amazing where the bikes will go and keep on chugging. Don't put it on the bucket list, just bloody do it!
