My guide Hanh was a very experienced rider, he allowed me to change the days itinerary and gave me valuable insight to the areas i visited. He was a super nice guy and had a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend using him as a guide. Also his chopper is badass and very comfortable!

I must admit I was a bit nervous about this activity noting the no of motorbikes on the road. I was immediately at ease & the riders were amazing & very professional. All the places we visited were interesting & our guides very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Really lovely friendly guide and comfortable bike. He was very flexible to adjust the order of stops so that I could ride on the train. All of the stops were really different so it was a great combination of activities.

Great experience and highly recommend to see the real Da Lat and pack a lot of things into limited time.

Bruce Lee is the best driver!! I felt so safe and he is a really nice and kind man!
