QT – YOUR GATEAWAY TO HA GIANG & CAO BANG
ABOUT QT MOTORBIKES & TOURS
QT Motorbikes & Tours was born when Quang Tang, today simply known as QT, invested all he had to start his own business. But that only happened after going through some hard times. QT grew up in Hoa Binh province (south-east of Hanoi) in extreme poverty, and had to drop out of school to do manual labor and support his single-mother. He later became a motorcycle taxi-driver, learnt English and got a job as a motorcycle guide before funding QT Motorbikes & Tours, a small family-run business in stunning Ha Giang, north Vietnam.
Today, the business is way more successful than it’d be in QT’s most ambitious dreams. At QT Motorbikes & Tours, we now organize bike tours and rent motorbikes both in Ha Giang and Cao Bang, with 270+ motorcycles available!
We also run a guesthouse in Ha Giang city and a homestay in Du Gia village, and we work with a partner hostel in Dong Van. And there’s more to come!
Despite this great growth, we keep working with the passion and commitment we have always been known for. Another secret formula? Well, unlike most agencies north of Hanoi, QT Motorbikes & Tours features a dedicated, full-time staff we call the QT family. And being part of this 25+ people team ensures motivation and personal development. What is more, QT is the only agency with a full-time mechanical team that ensures all our motorcycles are receiving the service they need to make your trip as trouble-free as one can promise on these challenging roads.
No.1 on Tripadvisor
Our English-speaking guides are mostly locally recruited young adults, many from the different ethnic minorities. They are a cheerful group, and they know the roads better than anyone. What is more, they’re knowledgeable and feel proud to share aspects of their culture while riding along Ha Giang and Cao Bang stunning lands with you. They are neither geologists nor academic historians – they are homegrown cultural experts to take you safely and joyfully through your lifetime adventure.
Only at QT you find a full- time employed team that ensures that bikes are checked, and completely repaired if needed, after every single ride. Nothing can be guaranteed for out on the roads, of course, but riding bikes that are constantly and professionally cared for should give you some confidence! The mechanics often join the guides when an extra driver is needed on a tour.
The Guest House staff
If you choose to stay and/or enjoy a meal at QT guest house, you’ll feel the warm, welcoming atmosphere our team works so hard for. They’re ready to help you check in and check out at any time. They can give you precious info and tips about the city and surrounding areas. And they’ll be also happy to prepare an awesome breakfast for you to enjoy before hitting the road, or a delicious dinner before a well deserved rest.
Finally, we welcome volunteers from all over the world that bring fresh eyes on what we do. Their skills and assistance have been of great help along these past years, and we’re happy to say they’ve enlarged the QT family, making it international.
We had the most amazing time during the loop. As we both don’t have any experience in motorbikes, we decided to do it with easy riders and booked the all-inclusive-package for three days. It was worth every penny!
Our drivers Brian and Vĩnh were excellent! Not only that we felt very save, but they also showed us many beautiful spots, we had the most amazing food and slept at wonderful places. We visited the markets in Don Van and Meo Vac, went swimming under a waterfall, and and and... it was amazing! We can recommend this tour to everybody! Even if you don’t need easy riders we recommend doing the trip with a guide, as he can give you so many interesting informations about nearly everything you will see and eat during the Loop! They also speak good English, which makes it very easy to communicate!
