Thào collected me from my hotel on her scooter and we went for salted coffee before setting out on our adventure. We went to some fabulous places and Thào was so knowledgable about the best, out of the way, places to go. We visited temples, shrines, local villages, an abandoned water park and more. We took some great photographs and although not a photographer herself, Thào knew some great spots to get the best out of what was quite an overcast day I really enjoyed myself, Thào was such good fun to. E with and I highly recommend this tour.
Jimmy was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who was keen to make sure he was meeting our expectations the whole time. By travelling by bike with local guides, we were able to see and experience far more of Hue than we'd have been able to alone. Would absolutely recommend.
The tour was amazing, our guide was very knowledgable, friendly and funny. We had some amazing coffee and a lovely seafood lunch. Couple that with the views which are spectacular. Would definitely do again and couldn’t recommend this company enough.
Best thing I did in Vietnam! Amazing! And our motorbike tour guides were awesome, Ben, Sherlock and dr who..total legends!
