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


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!

We also have a minivan group tour option which can have up to 12 guests for a more social experience.

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.

I’ve had a brilliant time using Onetrip throughout my travels across Vietnam. I first used the company while in Ho Chi Minh City. I booked a Mekong Delta Tour and a daytime student tour. I had a fantastic time with both of my guides. The tours were so personal and well run - you really get what you pay for. I then booked the Secret Waterfall tour while in Hoi An and anther daytime student tour in Hanoi. Again, I cannot fault the services - my guides were brilliant and I really felt well looked after - as a solo traveller I cannot recommend this company enough. Thank you Thao, May, TinTin and Huy for the wonderful memories.

We had Bin and Bryan as our guides who were great! Everything about the trip was a new experience and we had so much fun. Would highly recommend this trip.

My friend and I went on our second tour with OneTrip today after an excellent tour with them just two days ago. We saw our awesome guide Bin again and had a new friend, Harry, with us this time as we sat forth on our Hai Van Pass tour. My favourite bit of the Pass was swerving through the dense jungle, the weather gets a little cooler as we ascend and the rolling clouds add to the awe of the place. It was seriously the coolest thing ever riding a bike on the Pass! Other than the Hai Van Pass, the highlight of the trip was our visit to a secret waterfall where the locals go to for chilling with friends and for swimming to escape the summer heat. The atmosphere was super special. After going for a dip in the water, we sat on straw mats under wooden roofs and enjoyed a delicious lunch. Similar to our last trip, we felt safe again on the back off our motorbikes. Our guides drove carefully especially when the roads started getting wet during an afternoon drizzle. Needless to say, we’ve had another incredible experience with OneTrip team! On top of being organized, professional and enthusiastic, Bin and Harry were also fun and caring. Thanks for the good times and the awesome photos to remember the trip by :)
