The Experience

Want to get to Hue, but not miss out on all the amazing things that the road to our Imperial City has to offer? This tour with a private driver and guide has got you covered.


Detailed itinerary

7:00 AM FOR MOTORCYCLE / 8:00 AM FOR PRIVATE CAR AND SHARED MINI VAN

Your adventure starts from the very moment we pick you up at your accommodation. We will head to a local cafe for either Banh Mi (Vietnamese Baguette Sandwich) or Bun Ca/My Quang (Vietnamese Noodles) and a Ca Phe Sua Da (Vietnamese Coffee). This should wake you up and get you ready for the day’s adventure.

After breakfast, we'll head towards the coast of Da Nang. Our first destination will be Nam O Village, where we will learn about how fish sauce is made. Yes, you know you love our fish sauce… and if you’re lucky, you may even be able to take home a bottle or two.

From there, we will begin ascending towards the famous Hai Van Pass that you might have seen on BBC’s Top Gear. Make sure to have your selfie-stick ready! Besides the amazing views, our guides will share with you the history and the strategic military importance of this pass to Vietnam.

Our next stop will be the Lang Co Lagoon, where we can cool off by a beautiful waterfall or a secret beach on sunny days and enjoy a local Vietnamese lunch afterwards. Once everyone is fully fed, it's time to hit the road again towards Hue City.

As eventful as the morning has been, there’s certainly no end yet to all the amazing impressions you’ll receive on this day, as we continue driving you over beautiful unique countryside roads, freely breathing in the fresh air and experiencing the sights of locals growing their various vegetables, stunning rice paddies and surprisingly big cemeteries such as the “City of Ghosts.”

You guessed it, this is a trip where you don’t want to forget your camera, to capture all those great moments and stunning views before we drop you off at your accommodation in Hue between 4:00 - 5:00 PM.


All-inclusive

Breakfast, drinks, and an awesome local lunch are included.


Important

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 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 have had a courageous 6-year old having a blast, 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 done 3 tours with Onetrip to date: secret waterfall with Bryan, My Son adventure with Vinh, and Hoi An to Hue over Hai Van Pass again with Bryan. This review won't really focus on the content of each tour, but the overall experience. Each one of these comes with it's own charm, but the positives can easily be identified across all three. Firstly, how the tour is put together. It starts with local food and drink, which immediately opens the door for some cultural exchange. It also includes a local lunch, which lets you experience Vietnamese home life even further.Secondly, all tours include a visit to local families/workshops that do some traditional craft, like pottery, bronze casting, straw mat or lantern making or traditional fish sauce production. It's not only a great experience, but even more special because you don't visit the tourist traps but actual local people that share their stories. It's also clear that the guides have great relationships with these people, since they are welcomed like the proverbial prodigal son every time.Thirdly, the guides. They are knowledgeable, skilled drivers, speak good English and are good conversationalists, and are accommodating in every way possible. They know their routes, know their host families (for lack of a better word) and make you feel immediately comfortable when they pick you up. As a plus, they also take great pictures for you ;) Maybe I just struck it lucky, but I can truly say I've made friends with them as they are just good people. Lastly, the pace of the tour is dictated by you. Since there's a one to one guide/tourist/bike ratio, you can adapt an mold the plans for they day according to you alone. The guides are happy to extend certain activities or swop some things around based on your request, the weather circumstances, etc. They have enough experience and knowledge of their itineraries that they're still able to fit everything in.Onetrip is an awesome way to experience not just main attractions, but also true local life. It might be more expensive than other companies, but you absolutely get every dong's worth. You won't regret going with them.


After almost 2 months in Vietnam, I've used Onetrip several times and each time I've been amazed at how great their tours and guides are. I needed to get to Hue from Hoi An and so I chose to use Onetrip as a way to get to my destination while having an awesome time during the journey. My guides were Bryan and Phat (I believe that's the correct spelling?). They were both extremely friendly and caring throughout the entire trip. Bryan was a very funny and engaging guide and was obviously an expert at traversing the Hai Van Pass and exploring the surrounding areas. We started early with a great breakfast and coffee in Da Nang. Then we drove toward the pass and stopped along the way for coffee and pictures. The drive is incredibly beautiful and the surrounding scenery is worth exploring for hours by itself if possible. We then headed toward a very secluded waterfall for a refreshing swim. Once the swimming was done we drove around the Oyster farming bay and stopped at a seafood restaurant for a truly delicious lunch. After that, we drove toward "The Land of the Gods" which I won't go into too much detail about but it was equal parts absurd, mind-boggling, and strangely beautiful. We finally ended the ride at my homestay in Hue. This was the perfect way to travel to Hue!I highly recommend this tour if you're heading to Hue and Bryan as a guide!
