We had a great time travelling with Tri and Long from Hue to Hoi An, even though it started off chucking it down with rain we had waterproofs that kept us warm and dry! We made lots of stops along the way learning about local culture and history, as well as some stunning views. My favourite stops were Marble Mountains for the detailed carvings (plus it had stopped raining) and Lang Co Beach where we had a delicious lunch and the locals were so friendly, if it wasn’t raining the beach would have been lush to walk along too!

This is our first time riding an electric scooter. It was so fun and exciting as this would probably be our once in a lifetime experience, since we don’t have a motorcycle license and never intended to get one. We had a quick 30 min lesson on how to ride the scooter in a compound before head on the street. The whole ride tour were well taken care with several escorts surrounding us. It is a must try activity in Hoi An. Highly recommend

After a bit of confusion about the booking at the start everything went well. Sherlock my guide was friendly and knowledgeable and could answer any questions I had along the way. The bike I had was good and handles well even the few times it rained. All up it was a good day.

Great tour all round with amazing enthusiastic tour guide, can highly recommend if you want to see the top sights around Da Nang

We had an amazing time! Thanh is a great guide, very friendly and knowledgeable about local history.
