What can I expect to pay?

To estimate your cost:
$2500 NZD for your airfare return, visa application and overnight in Singapore on route to Hanoi. This amount can vary depending on which airline and how you decide to get there or you may decide to book your own flights to and from Hanoi. Our price is based on ex Christchurch or Auckland with Singapore Airlines. They have flight times that we find work the best to line-up with the tours.

For days not on the ride allow
$80 per day and $80 (50USD visa on entry)
$250 per day for a ride using a Minsk and $330 per day on a 650cc Ural. Pillion rate is $250 per day. (Remember includes EVERYTHING except your alcohol while on the ride).

Rides down the Ho Chi Minh Trail are more expensive due to the higher grade of hotels used and associated costs like getting the bikes and guides back to Hanoi. Hotels in Hanoi and transfers to the airport are not included in this guide. 

Pillions, whether on a Minsk or Ural, pay the same as if they were riding a Minsk.
