We just finished a 4 night 5 day trip from Hoi An to Phong Nha with Dung and Hung. An amazing adventure and certainly a highlight of our Vietnam holiday. Being in our sixties we were a bit nervous about how we would manage a 5 day trip but it was fantastic and so glad we did it. Dung and Hung are competent riders, caring individuals and made us feel safe, comfortable, and well cared for the entire trip. We requested hotel upgrades which they arranged seamlessly.
Over and above the scheduled itinerary stops, we got off the bikes far more than expected and were shown things we never would have on our own. Things like green tea plantations, the variety of coffee trees, how shrimp is dried on the road side, vegetable villages, minority villages, duck farms, all about harvesting rubber tree sap, roadside in honeybee hives, pepper vines, sugar cane fields, peanut plants, cinnamon trees, and of course rice paddies. We climbed waterfalls, jumped into waterfalls, trekked through the jungles, and even visited a temple special to Dung’s family. A visit to the Citadel in Hue was added for us as well which was nice. Thanks!
Their knowledge about the Vietnam/American War was appreciated. They shared numerous stories, some personal, about the war and it’s impact on the people and the country.
Lunches and dinners were amazing, they would order an array of delicious different dishes we would never attempt on our own. We had some good laughs, their humour is contagious.
They gave us good travel advice and helped us book our transportation out of Phong Nha. So helpful!!!
Dung and Hung are passionate about their country, love their jobs, care about their clients, and it shows every minute of the trip. Thanks for everything and thanks for making us feel special.
