Like many we were inspired to scale Vietnam on bikes after watching Top Gear. We did very little planning and thought we'd do it all on arrival. Flamingo Travel were brilliant. They helped us organise the whole trip and gave details on: routes to take, KM that could be covered, dangerous roads, biking etiquette in Vietnam, rough petrol costs per KM, accommodation costs in towns. They even gave us a sheet of paper with useful phrases we may need on an A4 sheet of paper with the Vietnamese translation below, and told us to phone them if we got stopped by the police and were in a bit of bother.
The bikes themselves were brilliant as well. We took out a Honda Wind, Honda Wave and a Honda Future. Had no problems with any of the bikes on the whole trip other than a couple of unavoidable punctures. Route we took was Ho Chi Min - Mui Ne - Nha Trang - Qui Nhon - Hoi An - Hue and then boarded a sleeper bus from to Hanoi with the bikes as cargo.
Could not recommend Flamingo enough. Vietnam is full of people trying to rip you off in some way, but this company is run by genuinely nice people who want tourists to have a good time!
