Who This Tour Is For

  Within about 40-minutes from departure, most clients are already drenched in mud and have gently crashed or dropped their motorbike at least once. No worries, the bikes on this tour are covered by the Tigit Damage Waiver. We’ve set this tour up for maximum fun with minimum worries. You’ll think you’re lost, stranded, and in the middle of nowhere, but not to worry, we know exactly where you are and how you’ll get out of this mess.

    Intermediate drivers will have fun on the entry-level dirt roads and splashing through puddles. Experienced drivers can try and keep up with our guides who twist and turn from roads to fields to ditches, trying their best to get you permanently stuck in the mud.

What We Expect From You

    Skill level is not hugely important, but what we require from you is an adventurous dedicated attitude towards crashing and getting stuck in the mud. 

A complainer? Then this tour is not for you!
A hero? Then this tour is for you!

    Even a skilless goon of a driver has pushing and pulling capabilities and we expect you to get stuck, really stuck, and ask for help to bail you out. Then dig deep to help your buddies and the guides out of other tough situations in the roasting tropical heat of Saigon.  The terrain is variable, things go wrong, guides get stuck, and this should all be considered part of the experience!

 

Saigon Adventure Tours – What It Looks Like

     Tigit Motorbikes convenient location is already outside the city center so riders can quickly escape the busy city and head out onto quiet, open roads. Within 20-minutes of driving, this motorbike tour is already on a ferry and off to the Vietnamese countryside.

     We’ll head out onto gravel tracks and areas of countryside where extreme development is starting to take place. Then we take a quick break to marvel at the contrast of an area this close to central Ho Chi Minh that is still traditional farmland in the quiet countryside. This area will soon disappear to modern development as this and other cities near Ho Chi Minh continue to grow. 

   The tour then winds around country lanes before heading off into forest-like plantations we like to call “Nam’s Forest.” Here in Nam’s Forest is where the game changes and the opportunity to get muddy literally surround you. This tour is an extreme off-road tour at heart, but unlike other routes, drivers have the option and flexibility to skip out on riding through most of the mud if they choose. However, this is likely the only chance you’ll get to ride in the mud where your guide expects you to get stuck and is willing to help. Think of it like a controlled environment to get out of control.
