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.

Firstly have to say that Han and Leo were the absolute best. So relaxed and happy to share information. We felt safe and in good hands the whole time. Nothing was to much trouble.The waterfall experience didn’t disappoint, it was great to have a little climb up the rocks about 100 metres and take the plunge. Then enjoy the fresh fruit we had bought at a market along the way.A real taste of fresh rural Vietnamese food, waited for us at the bottom of the hill, with a banquet laid out. So much delicious food did not leave us hungry.The visit to the lantern making factory and pottery factory challenged our creativity and was so much fun. Also enjoyed the two coffee/tea stops. Overall 10 out of 10. This expedition exceeded our expectations. Well done One Trip and boys

Our 2nd trip with Onetrip led us to the ‚Secret Waterfalls‘ near Hoi An. Bryan & Hans took us through beautiful rice fields, the ‚Vegetable Village’ and the jungle where we made our way up through the rocks to the waterfall. Once we got there we dove into the fresh water & had our picknick - the fruits we had bought at a local market before.We also stopped at a lantern workshop and a pottery village. I really appreciated that we were not ‘forced’ to or talked into buying something there and that by taking us to those places and the place we had our lunch at, which was very good by the way, Onetrip supports local people.All in all: We had a very nice & relaxing day trip! Thank you!

The adventure to the hidden waterfall with Onetrip was the best day we had in Vietnam! We had the pleasure to drive with Bryan, Chen and Tylor and chose the bikes as a way of transportation. We didnt regret it, since it was comfy, safe and the best way to experience and observe the local life and scenery on the way. Every step on the iternary felt authentic with very little (only in the pottery village) to no signs of tourist at all. The people we met on our way at every spot, like the local market and the villages, were enormously friendly and always smiled and waved at us. The waterfall itself was amazing and we had a beautiful view of the landscape. However, what made this adventure a truly memorable experience was the company we had. With Bryan, Chen and Tylor it didnt feel like a guided tour, but a trip with friends. They were authentic and sympathetic from the very beginning and the iternary didnt feel like a tight schedule. We never rushed through things and they mostly let us decide how much time we like to spend at the different places. They were especially patient with taking pictures at every spot we like. The informations they gave us werent memorized presentations but conversations. And it was just fun hanging out with them.All in all we would always book a tour with Onetrip again. They fullfilled every request we made, are very well organized, take the safety of the customers very seriously and as far as we can tell have an amazing staff!
