Vietnam Bike Tours & Other Unique Trips in Asia

We've crisscrossed the region since the early 1990s (read this Escape Magazine 1994 article on our first Vietnam bike tours). Places change, for better and worse, while there are certainly new fascinating areas opening up, like northern Laos and Myanmar, there are places you should not miss no matter what, including delightful Vietnam by bike.


What to know about our bike trips? Aside from a handful of annual tours, such as our Iron Chef Bicycle Vietnam trip, we organize only private, custom-tailored bicycle and adventure tours, from unique one-off itineraries, shorter tours for those with limited time, classic routes such as Vietnam's central coast, overland to Laos, Japan's sublime Shikoku Island, to our favorite— family trips. All of our private tours are planned to the unique preferences of our travelers. Contact us to plan your trip.
