Has to be the best way to see the city of Hue at night and really experience the scooter madness. Actually felt very safe at all times and we were taken to places not in the guide book. We started at a family home where they cooked a couple of dishes for us and learnt about traditional Vietnamese family life. We then went to a small family restaurant and were shown how to make rice cakes wrapped in banana leaves. Next stop a small cafe and ate crispy pancakes. All the food was delicious. Last stop a trip to a herbalist's shop which was awe inspiring. Thank you Tu and the Vespa Safari team for a great night.

A wonderful evening with Tu starting with food cooked by his mother, then on to the place of the best Hue cakes, before having delicious crispy Banh khoai. Finished the evening at a traditional herbal medicine place. Tu was a wonderful host for the evening. Highly recommended.

Me and my husband went on the morning Vespa tour with Tu and we were very lucky to have met his family and had a great great time.
We were picked up from our hotel by two beautiful vintage Vespas and started our trip. We went to the local market to get foods for our lunch and we were surprised to be led by Tu and his mother who cooked delicious lunch. We visited his house, his ancestral house and what we liked the most about this tour is we got to see and share with his whole family. His uncle who spoke really good English shared with us the history of their family and we could see how proud he was. We ate a lots of foods. And as i informed them first that I am allergic to shrimps and crabs( actually he checked with me first) so they were flexible enough to make me other things which were also very yummy.
I love his tour, his family and it was hard for us to say goodbye even we spent short time with them.
I promise to come back and see them next time I am in Huế
Thank you for great memories and great work Tu ( and your family).
Good luck and all the best
Highly recommend this tour to everyone!
P/S: If you are a bit afraid of the traffics or being on the bikes, I would say no problem. Because we spend more time with his family and share stories than being on the bikes( and if you like more riding, check with him . I am sure he has other tours that offers more riding). Cheers!

Vespa Safaris offer affordable tailormade trips in and around Hue.
It is up to you what you want to see; the rural villages and rice paddies, the relics from the imperial Vietnam, the urban parts.
Drivers are knowledgable, and speak good English. Take in a combined tour after lunch; going around the villages and the old city, then end Your trip for a sundowner overlooking the Perfume river, With a glass of Sparkling wine.
A must in Hue!
