XO tours??

Posted by Emma23 on 3/6/2013 at 05:27

Hey there!

Has anyone done a motrobike tour with this company?
It looks like fun but I am not sure that going on the back of a morotbike in Vietnam is wise?
I guess it's like everything though - if you don't take the risk oyu'll never know.

No need to book a tour. Any XO driver will take you around. Agree on price for an hour so so beforehand. It looks dangerous but the traffic moves quite slowly. I am a 63 year old male and I loved it.

Hi Emma. I've heard of them but not taken a tour. I've heard very good things about them and am sure they drive carefully and you will be provided with a helmet. I tried to book one for clients but they were fully booked on the day, so book ahead.

I just tried it and it worked out great. No danger at all. Average speed on Vietnam roads is just around 30-40km/hr. Enjoy the wind and the conversation with the girl while looking at night life. I think there are a few similar services.

No idea about XO tours.

Whatever you do, make sure your travel insurance covers you when you are on the back of a motorbike. Not all do.

"No danger at all" above isn't strictly true.

That being said, Vietnam is best viewed from a motorbike or boat :-)
