Read the reviews - checked out the website - was pretty much hooked on going with these guys - emailed Mr Top and received a very prompt reply - had the loosest of details from my end but was accommodated so so well. Arrived in Hue maybe an hour late - as soon as my girlfriend and I got off the train and exited Tim was there - a flurry of activity and no complaints or comments about our lateness and we were on our way.
All our stuff was wrapped up and looked after and we headed off on the back of the bikes already buzzing about it all. We stopped off on a little lay by where we had some snacks, some coffee and it was clear, just 45mins in, that we were with chatty, friendly and informed locals who cared about what we were doing and we're ready to answer all sorts of questions with a real knowledge that we could appreciate.
Alon the way we could stop regularly, either to take in something or to stretch our legs (or for me, to lose that numb-bum feeling) - I can't praise these guys strongly enough - there should be some ULTIMATE RATING that sets them beyond the parameters of the rating system in place because they provided me and my girlfriend with the best experience of our trip and we are into our last of three months away and have been lucky enough to enjoy some great trips and tours along the way.
I don't normally gush but I can't overstate how great the time was.
Accommodation was lovely, in an area that wouldn't maybe be deemed interesting but due to the company we shared and the info we were given we dandered around and probably felt our most 'connected' with a small Vietnamese village than we could have thought possible. And I make no apologies if that sounds off or a bit OTT.
We packed in a lot but it never felt like we were rushed - a bike affords you that much in terms if hopping on and off and the relaxed approach meant we never felt obliged to stay longer or leave sooner than we might have liked.
We had spells of bad weather - heavy rain, but, no surprises, our guys pulled over and we all suited up in waterproofs and, honestly, it was just so much fun.
Food wise - all good - if you're one of those annoying fussies or vegans etc - unfortunately they will only too happily accommodate you - my girl and I happily left them to it and had some of the nicest food we've had in over 3weeks in Vietnam.
Our trip ended in Hoi An - sadly - Tim and Tan dropped us off at a tailors they recommended - no pressure though - we ended up getting some bits and bobs and befriended the lady - took recommendations for a new hotel (our one on the first night wasn't great) which was just lovely and much cheaper and took more recommendations for food which was awesome too - it was such a great experience and we have the ladies details now as a result and will be in contact in the future.
They dropped us off to the hotel before we said goodbye and we were keen, whilst checking in, to make sure we said goodbye properly and saw them off, still buzzing and a little sad to see them go and , with them, the end of our trip.
Book them - and book them for longer than we did.
