The Experience

Want to get away? Let's get out of town and head to our secret waterfall for a truly local adventure. This experience includes a ride through the beautiful countryside where you catch a glimpse of the local life in the Quang Nam province and grab a few tasty local bites.

Detailed itinerary

7:30 AM for Motorcycle/ 8:00 AM for Private Car

Our adventure will begin early in the morning so we can enjoy the cool breeze as we make our way through the town on the way to the villages along the river. We will stop by one for a short while and interact with the locals and learn how to make the traditional Hoi An lanterns you see adorning the alleyways. You will get to make one for yourself!

After that we will head to another village that has been around for 500 years, specializing in pottery. After that, along the way to the waterfall, we will stop at a local market to pick up some delicious Vietnamese fruits to prepare for our picnic. We will enjoy these as we swim in the waterfall...

To get to the waterfall, we'll be doing a little bit of hiking so make sure to put on comfy shoes! And of course, don’t forget your swimwear!

After the waterfall, we'll enjoy a scrumptious home-cooked meal at the bottom of the hill prepared by a local family as we enjoy our scenery and chat and laugh.

It's a simple no-frill get-down-adventure and we'll get you back at your accommodation by 4:00 PM.


Breakfast, drinks, and a delicious Vietnamese lunch are included.


Although the private car option is available, we recommend taking the motorcycle option as we think it is the best way to experience our Vietnamese culture. On a bike, we can easily stop whenever and wherever you want. The freedom is incomparable to anything else you've ever experienced.

For those with back problems or family with elderly or young children, then we recommend the private car option. Although, we once had a courageous 6-year old opting for the motorcycle option and ended up having an awesome time and loving every bit of the adventure!

Please note that there is a 30% cancellation fee for any cancellation made less than 24 hours prior to the tour date since we have to book many services in advance. Otherwise, there is a 5% transaction fee for bookings that are canceled 24 hours prior to the departure in order to cover for transaction processing costs.

Me and my girlfriend went on the motorcycle trip to the secret waterfall, outside Hoi An, with "Coco" and "Bach"on Christmas day in 2017 and it was an absolute highlight of our two week visit to Vietnam. From the moment we were picked up, we felt like we were in the company of two good friends, rather than of two tour guides. It was a real pleasure getting to know both, learning about Vietnam and seeing the countryside from the back of a motorcycle. The waterfall is absolutely gorgeous and despite the cooler weather we still dove in for a swim and had a blast.The trip included a visit to the pottery village, lunch with a local family and a hilarious seemingly ad hoc stop along the way where the guys demonstrated how to climb a coconut tree, delivering a delicious coconut treat. The trip is an experience we will never forget. We went on a number of tours during our stay in Vietnam, but this is the one that really stuck with us as it was truly authentic, personalised and engaging, at an affordable price point that also benefits the young Vietnamese students working for Onetrip, as well as local communities.Do yourself a favour and let them take you along for the ride, you will not regret it.

We went on the waterfall tour on the back of motorbikes. It was awesome and our guides Tin-tin and Binh were really great guys - both spoke perfect English and were really fun. The waterfall was completely private for us when we went and it was beautiful. I highly recommended it.

It was our third time in Hoi An, so I and my husband would like to try something different. Therefore we convinced my friends to join this Onetrip Secret Waterfall even It looked like "too dangerous" beacause our group contains 4 adults and 5 young children, the samllest one was my little boy at 8 months old. To be honest I was a little bit nervous on the day before the trip. However with great support from TinTin and Thinh, all members in our two family were so happy during the trip.We started the trip at 8am from Christinas Hoi An by a-16-seats car. The car was modern and clean. Then we stopped at a local market to buy some fruits, veggies and pork. We then went to the Secret Waterfall, TinTin helped us to take care of your children while we were climbing on our own. We all enjoyed the waterfall but it suddenly rained so we went down and had a good lunch in the local restaurant where we had chance to meet very friendly local people. The food was so delicious! We finished our Secret Waterfall trip by making lanterns.When we went back to Hanoi, my daughter often asked about chú Tiến (TinTin's real name).In summary, I highly recommend Onetrip Secret Waterfall for who want to experince the real Hoi An.
