This was my top favourite experience in Vietnam. Toa was a fantastic guide, with very good English and a fine sense of humour. He was very easy to chat to on a variety of topics i.e culture, traditions, education, tourism, employment, agriculture.
We visited 2 waterfalls, zipping through the backroads through rice paddy’s, tea plantations, valleys, alongside rivers and villages. The weather was perfect, with slight drizzle occasionally. It was lovely to see the kids coming out of school break, big smiles and waves from many, buffalo being moved along at a slow amble along the roadside. You could have reached out and touched them (I declined)!
The scenery was out of this world. Just breathtaking.
Travelling solo, I was a little disappointed at first there were no others in the group, however this proved to be a bonus as you can set your own pace, which was a little slow walking to the waterfalls, after coming off a trek the day before. I am average in fitness, so if you are keen to do both motorbike riding and trekking, I would recommend this tour first.
I loved every minute of this experience. I loved the off-road challenge and riding through the mountain pass (main road).
Thanks again Toa and Sapa Full Day Motorbike Tours, for a truly memorable day!
