We honestly had the most incredible two days with Viet and Chilli .They know the country like the back of their hands and shared us parts of the country.We never would have even known about.We felt completely safe,even driving through the crazy roads in the pouring rain,and they went out of their way to help us after we were robbed cell phone in our trip, ( not while we were with them !).Easily the best part of the holing,thanks,so much for an awesome couple of day,i'll be back to do the tour up to HaNoi!
My husband and I booked a four hour tour for approx $25 US each with Mr Chilli and Hung.
it was quite fun and informative.... but if your use to motorbikes you may find it quite tame. Dalat is very beautiful but a lot of the places to visit are fairly lame.
The cafes, market and people are wonderful though.
I would recomend the easyrider tour if you want to kill a few hours..you will look at the website :www.vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com
Signing up for a tour with Easy Riders was one of the best decisions I made while traveling on my own in Vietnam. My guide spoke fluent English and could really tailor the sights toward my interests (more nature, plants (i.e., flowers etc.)
I am a recently retired woman and not one of those super active seniors but riding with the easy riders really made me feel young again! I can always take a day trip in a tour bus, but it's more fun with the easy riders.You will contact at vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com
Thank you so much for a fantastic five days from Dalat to HoiAn,I saw and learnt more than i expected.Although i did not lift a finger i could not keep up with youre energy.
youre English is very good! As well as youre driving.
I felt safe and trusted youre advise.Good food,stunning views,real VietNam and definetely good friends.

We decided to do the tour of Dalat with the Easy Riders as it came highly recommended in our travel guides. You can do the tour on a minibus or in a car but the guys at Easy Riders are very safe and careful drivers. They have big, sturdy motorcycles and whatever the weather they come prepared. We saw some amazing countryside, ate some lovely Vietnamese food, got thoroughly drenched at the bottom of a waterfall and drank very sweet local coffee. Our riders, Viet & Tony, were fantastic the whole day and really gave us a fantastic experience! I would highly recommend to do the day trip whilst in Da Lat...you pay about $10 more for it than the minibus but this is well worth it. If we had the time and money we would certainly do the trip from Da Lat to Hoi An which lasts 5 days! Maybe next time! Thanks so much to the vietnamnamoriginaleasyrider.com for such an amazing day, we will be sure to see you again soon! Easy Rider tour.

Nous avons fait une visite de Dalat avec Viet d'easyrider. Nous voulions visiter cette ville sans etre en groupe, juste en moto pour mieux apprecier le paysage et ne pas etre presse par le temps. Viet a bien compris ce que nous recherchions et nous a presente les cascades, les pagodes, les differentes cultures et paysages autour de Dalat tout en nous apportant des commentaires precis en tres bon francais. Il vous apportera aussi de tres bonnes precisions sur la vie au Vietnam et l'histoire du pays, il etait soldat durant la guerre du Vietnam et aussi gardien de foret durant 15 ans.
C'est un guide honnete, amical et serviable.
Si vous cherchez ce genre de voyage, je vous recommande chaudemement viet.

“ vietnam easyrider we recommend from experience in October 20" Jan 04, 2010 Hi all, We are a couple aged 68 and 70 and the thought of being on a motorbike for 6 days wasn't in our agenda for this trip...until we met Easyrider Viet in the street in Dalat. We went on a day trip with him and his mate, Davis, who also speaks German as well as English, and loved it so much we booked the 6 day trip. This turned out to be probably one of the greatest highlights of all our travels anywhere in the world. Incredibly beautiful and exhilarating way to see parts of the country we would not have seen without these two fantastic guys. Good English made conversation and explanation about where we were going and what we looking at just brilliant. I can't recommend these guys enough. Really pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We went from Dalat through the Highlands and then all the way back to Saigon. A must do! Contact at www.vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com or the office : 34 Co Loa Street, Dalat
When we arrived in Vietnam I had no idea How i was going to experience the real people and their culture. Obviousely we had to had to get away from the tourist traps. When we arrived in DALAT and met Viet & Chilli we were offered the chance to see What i can only imagine most tourists who come hear must miss out on. I was not dissapointed at all. In fact what i sow and the people i met was the experience I was hoping for and more than i expected in 6 short days (not spent crampt in a bus) We learnt alot about Vietnam and the people + culture by the time we reached Hoi An. It was inspiring enough to organise with Viet & Chilli to meet us back in Saigon for the next 4 day leg of our stay hear. If you are here to really experience this country then i can"t recomend a beter way. It was the the best.... I have to agree with everything Rhys said and more. Our 6 day trip was spectacular and we experienced a side of VIET NAM . I am sure not many people are lucky enough to get. We treated like VIP"s and have countless valuable memories. It is hard to put in to words. Thank you . Rhys - Fremantle western Australia. Easy Riders Vietnam Easy Riders
3 day whistlestop tour Chilli met us off the bus at Dalat with his co-rider Chau: we were initially nervous having had a long journey from Ho Chi Minh city and didn't want to be ripped off... in fact they took us to our pre-booked hotel (but could have found us something a lot cheaper in Dalat) and picked us up the next day. We spent the next three days with them (they offer 3, 6 or 9 day trips depending on your perference). We met with locals, found ourselves in good cheap hotels which we would never have found without Chilli. He comes across as a fixer; someone who knows & gets on with everyone and who makes things happen. Certainly worked for us. Sao is quieter; respectful, gentle and very friendly. Together they took us on a whirlwind tour of Dalat city, waterfalls, silk factory, coffee plantations, paddy fields, mushroom farm. One highlight was elephant-back ride on land and through a lake... really a must do experience. Food was excellent and very good value... I never knew soup could taste quite SO good... and lots else besides. If you want to contact Chilli, you can do so through his website www.vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com, Richard from England
Wij zijn door Mr Nho en Mr Tony van Vietnam Easyrider van Hue naar Hoi An gebracht. Om 08:00 vertrokken en, na een heel gave rit, om 16:00 bij het hotel in Hoi An afgezet. De tussenstops bij de Elephant Springs, China Beach en Marble Mountain zijn leuk, maar de rit zelf is eigenlijk het beste. Om je heen halen de Vietnamese weggebuikers de gevaarlijkste toeren uit, maar onze chauffeurs deden erg voorzichtig. Naast het spektakel op de weg is er langs de kant van de weg van alles te zien: marktjes, talloze pagoda's, rijstvelden en - met name vanaf de Hai Van Pass - schitterende uitzichten over de bergen en de kust. We zijn blij dat we niet met de bus zijn gegaan, want dit hadden we allemaal niet willen missen!
Speciale vermelding verdient de lunch in een vissersdorpje. Het eten mag je zelf uitzoeken uit de bakken levende vis en schelpdieren die er staan. Mr Nho kan je overigens heel goed adviseren. De mosselen van de bbq zijn echt fantastisch! De gamba's en noodles met inktvis die volgden waren bijna net zo goed. Als je dit in Nederland (of ieder ander westers land) al zo vers en lekker had kunnen krijgen, dan in ieder geval niet voor de ca. 5 euro p.p. die je hier betaalt
10 day tour from dalat-central highlands-hoian with Viet 10 day trip What started out as a six day trip was extended by an additional 4 days. The first days we're full of visits to small companies and waterfalls. Day 3 was a bit of a traveling day covering quite some distance north. Then followed the Ho Chi Minh Trail. There is still quite a lot of development in the southern end. We extended the trip north of the line of Da Nang. Above this line nature is at its best. There is hardly any development up to Hamburger Hill. From there back to the coast and down through Hue at south along highway 1. A lot of people and heat again after the quiet mountain region. All in all a good trip. Seen many things I would never have discovered on my own In case your interested contact: Viet website:vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com, Regards, Roel from Holland
As a party of three, we took the easy rider tour with Bin, which was hilarious. It's a great alternative to staying in a resort for a few extra days! We saw the beautiful highlands of Vietnam, the cool climate of Dalat, local agriculture which helped us to appreciate the cultural development of Vietnam, and the co-exisiting local minority groups within the Highlands. The people were gorgeous and incredibly friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being able to integrate with the locals and dine with them in their restaurants (with the best food of our travelling trip to date). Thank you Easy Rider for a great experience and especially to "Bin" and "Hai" for being awesome hosts!!

Phillip hat mich schon morgens um 5.00 Uhr auf dem Busbahnhof von Dalat aufgegabelt. War mir ja erst nicht so sicher, weil im Stefan Loose was von blau/schwarzer Uniform stand. Aber obwohl nicht blau/schwarz, kann ich ihn nur empfehlen. Wir sind unterwegs von Dalat nach Nha Trang (3Tage)und der Trip ist wirklich schoen. Da ich es nicht so mit Seidenfabriken etc habe, sondern mehr an Land und Leuten (Natur und Minderheiten) interessiert bin, habe ich gefragt, ob wir die Tour etwas aendern koennen. Hatte bis jetzt (2.Tag) wunderschoene Erlebnisse, weil er mir - im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes - ganz viele Tueren geoeffnet hat. (Und mir abends in muehevoller Kleinarbeit die ganzen Namen der Volksgruppen nochmal buchstabiert hat :) Ueberhaupt kann man ihm tausend Loecher in den Bauch fragen, er weiss immer was zu berichten. Falls jemand Rueckenprobleme oder sonstige Gebrechen hat (ich habe einen Behindertenausweis mit 50%), einfach Bescheid sagen. Er legt dann mehr oder weniger oft einen Stop ein, und wenn es mal kein "Highlight" gibt, tut's auch ein kurzer Spaziergang durch die schoene Landschaft, um alles wieder gerade zu ruecken. Man muss noch nicht mal Bescheid sagen, dass das Kreuz weh tut. Er denkt mit. Zum Fahrstil: habe mich immer sicher gefuehlt, das sagt wohl alles. .... und hat eine nahezu deutsche Puenktlichkeit : )
My friend and i just completed an amazing adventure! In 2 days we went from Dalat to Muine by motorbike.Along the way,we stopped at waterfalls,history sites from American war,flower farms,minority village,dragon-fruits,Cashew farms,peanut farms,Silk factory,the local activities on the road,fishing village,and beautiful views,and a lot...Viet has such good knowledge of the land and history and knows how to have a laugh!He is ' Ga On'!!!For anyone reading this and considering whether or not to do a tour with Viet,i would say go for it!you'll have a great time and don't regret it.you'll be well cared for and get to enjoy Viet's brilliant sense of humour as well as learning a lot about VietNam.
Thanks for everything Viet
Myself and two friends - all early 20's female backpackers - traveled with Mr Binh, his brother-in-law, and Mr. (Happy) Water from Mui Ne to Dalat and on to Nha Trang over two days. It was the best experience of our entire 1 month backpacking trip through Cambodia and Vietnam and cannot recommend it enough. Although it was a bit above our budget, we fell in love with Mr. Binh when we first met him and we knew we had to do it. His English is perfect and he was full of knowledge. We never rode for more than 45 minutes at a time which was just wonderful as we got to stop at so many places and see so many different things that we never would have known about if we had either done the trip ourselves or taken a bus. I cannot recommend it enough to everyone and anyone planning on travelling through Vietnam. We felt safe and comfortable for the entire trip and I will remember this for the rest of my life. If time and money had allowed we all agreed that we would have wanted Mr Binh to come with us for the rest of the trip! We did and saw things that many tourists never do and we really explored off the beaten track. Thank you so much Mr Binh and team for such a wonderful experience!

10 day motorbike tour was fantastic. We were met by our guides Bin and Hai at Mui Ne and travelled up through the central Highlands finishing in Hoi An. Never would have experienced the real Vietnam on our own. Bin and Hai have terrific knowledge of back roads keeping riding on busy roads to a minimum. A fantastic experience..thankyou Bin and Hai...Liz and Mark Price AUSTRALIA
We travelled for a month in Vietnam, and this is still one of the best things we did. So worth spending a bit of money doing this, because you get to see and do things we never would have done on our own. Really took us away from the tourist circuit, met amazing new people, tasted food we never would have ordered on our own and went places we didn't even know existed, like a beautiful waterfall in the middle of the central highlands. Our guides were delightful! Extremely knowledgable and so much fun.
Thanks so much Khuong via vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com
Es ist wirklich so wie es alle Gäste des VietnamoriginalEasyRider beschreiben. Mann kommt geschlacht von einer 10 stündigen Busfahrt in Da Lat an und wird sofort umzingelt von Leuten die einem eine Easy Rider Tour aufschwatze wollen. Zumindestens denkt man das als erstes ;-) ! Mr. Davis batt mich ganz nett seine Empfehlungen zu lesen und dann war mir klar ich würde das Abenteuer meines Leben buche !!! Ich habe ein City Tour sowie eine 3 Tagestour nach Na Tran gamacht und habe dabei so viel über das Land, Essen, Kultur, Sprache,Leutr gelernt wie ich in 1 Monat Urlaub nicht mitbekommen hätte. Mr. Davis hat ein sehr fundiertes Wissen und führt euch zu atemberaubenden Plätzen und zeigt euch das "Real Vietnam" :-D !! Er ist zu dem ein ausgezeichneter sowie sicherer Fahrer. Ich habe Zeit sehr genossen und wünschte ich hätte noch mehr Zeit um dieses Abenteuer fortzusetzte! Ich kann also jedem nur empfehlen auf dem Sitz des Biks vom Mr. Davis "Vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com" platz zu nemen und die Tour zu geniessen. ;-)
We (my boyfriend and I) spontaneously booked Bin and Rocky from Mui Ne to Nha Trang via Dalat. It was great! The guys showed us really great spots where we could take our time and walk around on our own as long as we wanted. When we had enough we would jump on the bikes again and the ride continued. They had a lot of knowledge regarding the country, people and their customs. The accommodation they proposed was in a great location, clean and safe.
We would recommend this to anyone and will definitely book them again for a longer trip!

Wir haben ueber Viet in der Zeitschrift Motorrad Abenteuer Reisen einen Bericht gelesen und haben aus Deutschland per E Mail Kontakt aufgenommen und alles gebucht. Viet hat uns dann in Da Lat empfangen und wir sind 10 Tage mit ihm auf Tour gewesen. Wir hatten zwei Motorraeder gemietet und sind selbst gefahren. Viet war uns eine prime Tourguide und so tief ins vietnameische Leben waeren wir nie eingetaucht. Sein Motto bei den Easy Ridern ist, LOW BUDGET und das kann er wirklich gut, sehr gut. Trotzdem waren alle Unterkuenfte hervorragend, wenn man keine 3 und mehr Sterne braucht. Wer werden diese Tour nicht vergessen und koennen Viet nur weiterempfehlen. Weiterhin gute Fahrt, in diesem fuer uns doch verrueckten Strassenverkehr. Maerz 2010. a d o
As a woman travelling alone wanting to see the country, people and culture I knew it wouldn't happen sitting in tourist spots, on buses or trains, someone made a comment about Easyriders. Went to the website for the original guys, started 1991 www.vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com ,I originally booked 3 days from Saigon to Dalat, 9 days later I'm still on the back of the bike in Hoi An heading for Hue. Davis speaks good English and several other languages, his knowledge is incredible and he has taken me to many different villages, local industries mostly private homes e.g. the making of rice paper, tofu, furniture, tapioca powder, sugar processing, furniture carving, bricks, silk, gone into the jungle to pull of a leaf for me to chew and taste cinnamon and so much more than I ever expected. Davis is a mature, kind, considerate person who is an excellent safe driver and takes a lot of care with my comfort, likes and dislikes, especially regarding food and I have tasted some incredible food along the way. He always tries to find something different but from the local people to try. At first I thought it was an expensive way to travel US$75 per day but when you consider, he had to come from Dalat to Saigon to collect me, he will have to drive back from Hue to Dalat, it includes hotels, entrance fees etc and a way to really get to see the country, meet the people, experience the local foods it has been worth so much more.
We meet Viet in Dalat and we decided to make a tour to Mui Ne with him and his friend Chilli.
Both were very friendly,speaking good english and explained everything well. The whole trip was well organized, we felt very safe and had much fun on the bikes.
We saw a lot of places which we had never expected to see.
Thank you for great two days
Marcel and Nina
After a long 4 week hard travelling through laos we wanted to be taken to all.the off beat places. How to find east rider original s...STOP looking ..forget the rest go with the best. Seriously the 11 days we spent with Chilli and tow were amazing. My husband and I. Aged 65 and 55 never been on a motorbike were picked up in mad saigon by the guys and felt safe and secure from.the first moment. We we were looked after. Accommodation was fine. Food along the way just superb and cheap.We went to all the places we should and many many more unexpected treats. The central highlands are . The 7th wonder of the world. Sorry if we are gushing but do a trip with Chilli and to it will be your highlight. We have just finished halong bay and wish we had stayed with the guys for a few more.days instead. Enjoy .j and k
Hallo an alle, die sich ueberlegen, mit Mr. Viet eine Tour zu machen. Mein Freund und ich trafen wie wohl alle in Da Lat auf ihn. Ich hatte schon einiges ueber die Easy Rider gelesen. Da wir unseren naechsten Stop in Na Thrang machen wollten, fragten wir, ob auch das moeglich waere. Mr. Viet ist in dieser Sache wohl sehr flexibel und so ging es auch schon am naechsten Tag los. Mein Freund fuhr selbst auf dem Moped von Mr. Viet's Sohn. Dazu ist zu sagen, dass es fuer ihn zwar kein Problem war, weil er ein sehr geuebter Fahrer ist (er faehrt seit ueber 15 Jahren), aber fuer unerfahrene bzw. unsichere Fahrer wird die Tour kein Spass. Ich selbst bin bei Mr. Viet mitgefahren. Er faehrt sehr sicher und schaut auch immer nach dem Hintermann (in diesem Fall meinem Freund). Wir machten insgesamt eine Drei-Tages-Tour. Die ersten paar Stops kamen uns noch sehr touristisch vor, aber schon kurz spaeter war klar, dass desto weiter wir fuhren umso weniger Touristen umgaben uns bzw. gar keine mehr. Die Schmerzen im Hintern lohnen sich in jedem Fall. Vor allem die Landschaft, die Infos ueber Land und Leute, ueber den Krieg und ueber die Natur bzw. wie und was die Leute hier alles anbauen. Man lernt also in jedem Fall viel neues kennen, auch wenn man bereits andere Laender Asiens bereist hat. Achja, und auch wenn jemand etwas Bedenken wegen den Unterkuenften hat, diese sind wirklich sehr gepflegt und sauber. Ausserdem kann man die Zimmer immer vorab anschauen. Die ganze Tour ist ebenfalls sehr flexibel. Z.B. wollten wir keine Elefanten reiten (typisch touristisch) oder an anderen Stellen wollten wir anhalten, um etwas anzuschauen... Alles ist moeglich. Also, macht euch auf den Weg nach Da Lat und den Easy Ridern. Es ist wohl die schoenste Art in Vietnam zu reisen. Viel Spass
We (2 young females) decided to take up a 6 day long adventure from Dalat to Hoi An with the lovely Duong and Loi. What a fun filled interesting adventure. Everything was better than we could have wished for and Duong and his informative stories and the report and respect he showed people was second to none. Loi was lots of laughs too.
Trust them on food choices, they know what's good. The accomodation was good and clean, and the real vietnam you see will be something you will never forget. To start with we took a day trip and then Loi talked to us about doing a longer one ... We have no regrets and I hope to one day return and complete the loop to Hanoi. Thank you for such an amazing time.
