This one-way tour turns your boring transit into a full day adventure! The scenic journey from Hoi An to Hue is best experienced on the back of a vintage Vespa - zipping past the beautiful stretch of beach in Da Nang and up the winding roads of the famous Hai Van Pass. Of course, no road trip is complete without a few cultural pitstops to gain insight on famous landmarks, enjoy a cup of coffee with the locals, or simply just take a minute to appreciate the breathtaking surroundings.

Took this tour after a fair bit of research around several on offer. This one stood out for variety and value for money. It was BRILLIANT. We were collected from our hotel and taken to the base cafe where we enjoyed tea while the rest of the tour party were brought in. We then met our guide Ben and our two riders Hao and Chum (sorry if we got those names confused) We then experienced an informative ride through the rural areas outside Hoi An visiting families in their homes and experiencing how many local goods are made and having the opportunity to see it first hand from the craftsmen and women. Ben kept us amused with his stories and jokes and our riders were always careful but also wanting us to experience what it is like to ride in Hoi An’s somewhat crazy traffic. Of the many experiences we had on our short stay in Vietnam, this was a highlight and will be long remembered.

With much uncertainty about the trip due to rain we set off on the vespas from our accommodation to get organised for the day. From the start our senior guide, Onion, was a quick witted and intelligent guide. Neill the branch manager was very receptive and kind and due to the wet weather he bought us Banh Mi's and coffee, thanks Neill. Although the weather hindered some good scenic opportunities the tour was great fun and very educational. We were able to stop regularly for photos and stretch our legs. Lunch was a good mixture of seafood and throughout the day it was like being with old friends. Definitely the way to travel through Hai Van pass and certainly a fun day. Thanks guys
