Had two days of local tours around danang taking in amazing scenery and local village life. Hai van pass and Hue cemetery that was amazing. Great restaurant stops and scenery spots for photos. Local weavers and fragant oil manufacture. Anything you wanted to look at from roadside vendors to fishing boats was no problem
We cannot rate our experience with King Nguyen Travel highly enough. My boyfriend (an experienced off-road rider) and I (a beginner) shared a comfortable XR 400, and covered more than 500km with King over three days. We had asked for something off the usual tourist trail and King certainly delivered! After getting an idea of our riding ability, King tailored our trip. Over three days we rode though rice paddies and farmlands, across bamboo bridges and through minority villages; we wound up and over mountains, tracked off-road through jungles, swam at a waterfall, experienced river crossings, cruised highways and sped along beaches. We managed a little city riding in Hue and Da Nang, and took in the gorgeous views from Hai Van Pass, and the Ho Chi Minh trail. King alway seemed to know the perfect time to stop for a snack or meal, and kept us well-supplied with water. He happily shared his knowledge of the different places we stopped (including his own favourite off-road trails), and helped us understand some of the cultural and political contexts of the things we were seeing.
All the food, drink and accomodation was included in the very competitive price, and took into account my dietary requirements. The hotel they booked for us to stay in in Hue, was the best of our entire trip, and included an indoor pool, bar and generous buffet. The hotel was in a great location.
King kept his sense of humour when we bent the handle bars of his bike in upon themselves (our fault - not his), and even let us keep the bike for an extra day at no cost. You will be sore and happy if you choose King Nguyen Travel to help guide your next adventure. We won't hesitate to book again. Thanks again King! Jerri and Luke.
What a great way to check out Vietnam. Thanks King for an awesome experience.
King could have not make more for us. If we could have given more of a star rating this would be double. Bucket list definitely ticked off with this ride. Completed the Ho Chi min loop, hoi an to Prao to Hue and then back via the Hai Van pass. King tailored the ride to suit us, off road, thousands of corners and off the beaten track. Perfect in every sense of the word. You won't be disappointed. Better than ever expected.
After looking at a few different tour companies that offered the popular Hoi An to Hue route and seeking advice from our hotel in Hoi An we chose King Nguyen Travel based on their itenery/route which avoids the highways and ventures off the beaten track into rural Vietnam.
We could not have been happier with our decision. King collected us from our hotel and sent our bags on a bus to Hue to be waiting for us at our hotel when we arrived some 9 hours later.
The 9 hours spent riding through scenic paddy fields, small villages and ocean roads was incredible - pictures simply do not do it justice. The route is very well thought out with planned stops along the way for coffee and lunch amongst a number of other attractions/photo opportunities. Clearly a lot of time has been invested to develop the day's itinerary. Both King and the other driver that accompanied us, Hung (I believe), rode exceptionally well, not once doubting their safety on the roads.
I won't go into detail about the itinerary/route as I believe it is best to experience without any preconceptions.
I cannot recommend King Nguyen Travel highly enough! Riding from Hoi An to Hue with King and Hung has been the highlight of our two weeks in Vietnam and we were sad to leave them at the end of the trip. I encourage anyone considering travelling Vietnam to do it with King Nguyen Travel - you won't regret it!
Sit back and take in the views - they will stay with you a lifetime!
