Owner description: Mr Thong is one of the first « Easy Riders » of Hoi An. His passion for motorbikes and his natural curiosity led him to explore Vietnam on motorbike for his personal pleasure, beginning with Hoi An and its surroundings, then the rest of Vietnam. Today, Vietnam and particularly the region of Quang Nam holds no more secrets for Mr Thong. Take one of Mr Thong’s motorbike tours and benefit from his first-hand knowledge of Vietnam, and his experience of traveling throughout the country on motorbike. He will guide you on an adventure through the lesser traveled routes, far away from the regular tourist circuits, where you will discover the stunning, natural beauty of the authentic Vietnam--full of surprises !

“Don't miss traveling with Mr. Thong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 NEW via mobile

Mr. Thong picked up my husband and me from the hotel in Hoi An and drove to his house to pick up the bikes. I road on the back of Mr. Thongs bike and my husband drove his own. We did the Ho Chi Minh Trail and Ethnic Minorities 1 Day Loop. I was nervous about my husband driving in the cities but he got the hang of it quickly. Organized chaos.

One of the best days of our trip. Views were breathtaking...even in the rain and sunshine. We got caught in a rain storm but it only added to the fun. My husband sampled snake wine! We sipped coffee, tasted fresh pineapple. Lunch was pretty tasty. Drove through villages and along a tea plantation.

Mr. Thong was very knowledgable and stopped along the way to teach us about the area and the crops. Loved getting out of the city to experience more Vietnam. We also got great dinner recommendations. Highly recommend!!

“Great ride, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Should you do the Hai Van Pass? Definitely, it was beautiful and one of our fondest memories of Vietnam. However, in contrast to the reviews below, we didn't find that Mr Thong added much to the experience. He rarely stopped, so we just stopped without him to take in the views. For lunch, we were taken to the most expensive restaurant that we ever saw in Vietnam (part of an incomplete holiday resort) and it turned out that we were paying for lunch, contrary to what is written on his website. This soured the mood a little, especially when we asked to go elsewhere and were told that it was the only place in town. After eating, and being charged double for what we ordered, we continued through the town which just so happened to be full of restaurants. Ideally, we would have done this trip independently from Hoi An as a round trip. The last quarter into Hue isn't much fun and could be skipped in favour of biking back to Hoi An.

“Mr Thong is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Mr Thong is amazing! He was always honest to us about what our options were. We wanted to go from hoi an to dalat with him in three days but he said that was not enough time to drive through the mountains. So, we did a one day tour with him and another rider around hoi an. It was really good and fun! We went through really small roads and small villages that you would kever find on your own! We went into houses to learn more about the things they make and mr thong regularly stopped by a field and showed us the different things they grow and even did some harvesting himself, it was really interesting and funny! They also always watch over your things and make sure that they do not het wet. The motorbikes are bood bikes and the riders drove really well!

Then mister thong arranged that other easyriders would pick us up at the airport in nha trang and drive us tot dalat in two days. These drivers (mister ocean and mister hung) were also really great! Funny guys, good drivers and they always looked after us. They always went with us, gave good explenations and helped us when necessary! (We saw everything around dalat that there is to see: waterfalls, the crazy house, flower plantation, silk factory, mushroom plantation, coffee plantation and amazing views!)


Conclusion: both great experiences! It is a good price/quality that you pay and they really show you the local life (that you would not discover by yourself) including great local food!

I highly recommand mr Thong, mr Ocean and mister Hung!!

“Unbelievably good, bucket list material.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

What can I say that hasn't already been said? My fiancee and I asked Mr Thong to provide us a private, 2-day custom itinerary return trip from Hoi An to Hue (including accommodation), with a Hue city tour, and based on his one day Hai Van Pass VIP tour. No problem, no fuss, we agreed a price and everything was arranged. Two days later we were being picked up in the early hours of the morning from our hotel for the most fantastic two days we could have imagined. Even though he was open to any suggestion, we left the choice of route and places to visit to Mr Thong and there was nothing he suggested that did not surpass our expectations. There were plenty of stops to stretch our legs and always with something interesting to see. And travelling over the Hai Van Pass by motorbike ... twice? ... bucket list material! Even at the end of two very long days on the back of a bike, it was completely different, possibly even better, coming from the opposite direction at a different time of day.

“So Much Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

My daughter and I did the two day trip from Hoi An to Hue and back, over the Hai Van Pass with Mr. Thong. It was really fabulous. We rode our own scooters, and Mr.Thong was great about teaching us how to maneouver in Vietnamese traffic. We never felt like we were in danger or out of control. It was so much fun, and an excellent way to see places we would never have seen otherwise. Mr. Thong set us up wonderful photos, and when we got back to Hoi An, rented us a scooter at very reasonable rates. Once we experienced the freedom of scootering, we couldn't give it up! It really was the highlight of our SE Asia trip.
