About the People of Lao Adv

Lao Adv Tours was formed by a group of friends in early 2015.  All of us are motorcycle riders with many years in Asia under our belts. Combining our experience, we now offer you a wide range of tours. From the northern mountains to flatter lands of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in the south, on the paved roads and dirt tracks, our tours of Laos offer some great riding. With our many years experience in the touring business, our aim is to run well organised fun tours, showing you the country and its people, while traversing the best trails, roads, and routes that Laos has to offer.

    5 star review  There is some sensational offroad riding in Laos and you won't find anyone who knows it better or loves it better. Tell them what you want - gnarly riding or cruisy touring? historical sites on the Ho Chi Minh trail or just getting dirty in the jungle? - and you will receive. Just as importantly, riding with these guys - Chris, Hue Lee - is just awesome fun. If you're going to be out in the mountains together for days on end, it's pretty important that the people helping you drag your bike through a river in the morning and having a cold beer with you in the afternoon are actually people you want to spend time with. Thanks for putting a smile on my face and keeping it there for weeks on end. Also worth noting is the fact that the bikes are maintained in good condition, which is not something that can always be said about hire bikes. Chris is a man with mechanical sympathy and considerable expertise, and he cares about this. They are mostly CRF250s which are pretty much perfectly suited to the onroad and offroad conditions in this part of the world, they're well looked after, and they go pretty good. I am now completely, hopelessly in love with offroad riding in Laos.

    5 star review  Lao Adv tours have the cleanest and best maintained fleet of rental bikes I have seen in Southeast Asia. When booking a tour this point eases concern as nothing is worse than dodgy, unreliable bikes on a trip. The owner is a true enthusiast and loves riding dirt bikes. His knowledge of the terrain and trails stupendous. Whether you want hard enduro single track or flowing double track trails to historical sites like the secret Air bases used during the Vietnam war, Chris at Lao Adv can provide enough to keep you grinning for days.

    5 star review  Lao Adv Tour is a Class A establishment. Every year I visit Laos and this is my go-to, hassle free, great value, reliable equipment place. Chris has a great stock of bikes, I drive all over this country and haven't had an issue with equipment. The price for the entire trip is less than one days rental in United States. Don't hesitate on using this Adv Tour establishment. Keep up the good work!

Chris Corbett

Owner CEO
Chris and his trusty companion Muttley in Laos.

Chris has lived and worked in Laos for 5 years. Prior to that he spent 5 years riding the Ho Chi Minh Trail, researching and learning about it. Now a seasoned tour operator with a can do attitude and a dab hand with a spanner, Chris started to feel a little shackled working in the tourism sector for others. So now he’s finally broken free from the grind and gathered a group of like minded people together to offer some stunning adventures

Tour Guide
Mr Hulle & his daily driver.

Mr Hulle recently joined us. With over 6 years guiding experience on motorcycle, he knows his way around Laos. His laid back way of doing things is reassuring. There’s nobody better to be with in remote areas of Laos as he is a keen hunter and an excellent mechanic. You’re certainly in safe hands with Mr Hulle.

Virginia Morris

Virginia with Artillery piece

 Virginia has a great sense of adventure. At 13 years old she rowed three miles across a shipping lane to discover the island on the other side. Before she could even drive a car, she had traveled extensively and trained as a pilot.

Her interest in the Vietnam War has spanned decades. She lived in Laos for two years where she walked the Ho Chi Minh Trail in the late 1990s. In Vietnam and American, she has interviewed many veterans of the conflict. The former commander of the trail Lieutenant General Dong Si Nguyen of the Truong Son Army, one of the biggest sections of  the Vietnamese People’s Army, presented Virginia with a campaign medal as a sign of friendship between Britain and Vietnam.

Today Virginia is an author, explorer, and academic researcher specialising in military and political subjects. She is married with two children, both of which accompanied her and her husband down the trail in 2015.
