In fact, they are provided “as is” and we don’t alter anything at all. A detailed FAQs page is the first thing you can check before sending an inquiry to save your time and ours. Support Offroad Vietnam provides riding lesson for riders who want to flow with Vietnamese traffic for 30 USD per person. After one to two hours, most of our customers handle the crazy traffic well. The most important things are confidence and the passion to ride! This lesson is only available for guided tour clients. For independent riders, we provide rental services at reasonable prices. We also provide free broadband Internet access and photo burning on CDs or DVDs to our clients. All the photos will be backed up on our hard disk and you can get them back anytime if you lose your camera or your memory card is lost or damaged.
