Digby Greenhalgh

All motorcycle tours are designed and led by Digby Greenhalgh.

Explore Indochina evolved from the Hanoi Minsk Motorcycle Club, which Digby started in 1998. He was one of the first foreigners to explore north Vietnam.

A passionate historian, Digby is an expert on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. He recently led an expedition to uncover the crash site of a USAF jet that had been piloted by Forest Fenn, the art dealer who became famous for hiding the Fenn Treasure, a cache of gold and jewels, in America’s Rocky Mountains.

Reminiscing about the trip, as I sit here doing work. Wish I was back in Laos on the trail!

I've done quite a bit of trail riding in the UK over 20yrs and this trip was absolutely amazing. The local knowledge and competence of Digby not forgetting the invaluable assistance of our tail end mechanic made this 8 day trip all the more enjoyable.

Our group of 12 did the 14 day Northern Border Loop, just can't find enough superlatives to describe our trip and the wonderful people at Explore Indochina.

Vietnam is a beautiful country and these guys can give you a great, well organised, and safe adventure. Beware of cheaper imitations, you really do get what you pay for.

This is not only a bike tour but a food tour, a cultural tour, a scenic tour—everything you expect and much, much more.

The jungle, local village hospitality, local history, unbelievable sights, many river crossings, ridiculous hill climbs and friendships.

The Explore Team went out of their way to make it all happen extremely well—even catching us with a replacement set of boots after big foot failure on day 2!

It would have to be one of the best things I've ever done . We have done two trips and will be back for a third in the not too distant future . Highly recommended
