Dalat nach Hoi an - Thursday, 28 August 2008 02:12 - Germany

Wir haben eine 6tägige Motorradreise von Dalat nach Hoi An unternommen. Es war eine abwechslungsreiche und sehr interessante Fahrt entlang des HoChiMin Trails. Durch die beiden Guides wurden uns viele Details näher gebracht und wir haben Einblicke in die Kultur und Traditionen des Landes Vietnam erhalten. So haben wir abends u.a. auch an traditionellen BBQs und mittags in landestypischen kleinen Restaurant/ Imbiss lecker Essen genießen dürfen. Tagsüber waren wir auf den Spuren des HoChiMinPfades unterwegs. Auch die Hotels während der gesamten Fahrt waren sehr gut gewählt. Die Verständigung auf Englisch war überhaupt kein Problem. Das Gepäck war zu jeder Zeit sicher. Hien hat sehr vielfältige Informationen über die Zeit des Vietnam Krieges vermittelt. Alles in allem eine sehr gelungene Tour, auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen!!!!! Jochen & Sabine

A great trip! - Sunday, 15 June 2008 00:58 - A small island

We zijn net aangekomen in Mùi Ne, na een prachtige 2 daagse rit vanaf Dalat. One gidsen waren Viet en Chilli. Viet spreekt vloeiend Engels en stopt overal waar je wilt. Hij Klopt ook aan bij mensen die hij zelf niet kent en dat zorgt voor bijzondere en mooie ontmoetingen. Je komt op plekken waar je zelf nooit terecht zou komen omdat je van de standaard wegen afwijkt. Chilli spreekt een paar woorden Engels maar is evengoed een super gezellige man. De kennis over alle gebieden ligt bij deze mannen erg hoog. Wij geven deze Reis een 10!

Nice experience! - Friday, 23 May 2008 00:45 - Spain

Recorrer las montañas es una pasada y, aunque nuestros guías no hablaban muy bien inglés, daban mucha seguridad conduciendo que teniendo en cuenta como son las carreteras es muy importante. Recomendamos visitar Lak Lake, pero el destino es solo un pretexto para disfrutar en la moto. 
Eso si, hay varias compañías así que podeis cogerlo allí directamente en Dalat porque desde España al final sale más caro al perder casi siempre un dia por los traslados (día que pagas).

Atemberrauben! - Friday, 02 May 2008 02:43

Wir hatten zu zweit eine Zwei tages Tour von Nha Trang nach Dalat. Es war einfach toll und wir konnten so viel sehen und erleben. Herzlichen Dank an Viet und das ganze vietnameasyrider company

Van dalat naar muine met easyriders Viet en Chilli! - Friday, 02 May 2008 02:18 - Ivonne jan

De afgelopen twee dagen zijn we samen met Viet en Chilli op pad geweest en hebben zij ons de binnenlanden van Vietnam laten zien op de route van Dalat naar Mui Ne. We hebben lang getwijfeld of we mee zouden gaan met de easyriders omdat we bang waren een standaard toeristisch programma voorgeschoteld te krijgen voor een behoorlijk pittige prijs. Maar gelukkig hebben we Viet en Chilli duidelijk kunnen maken dat we van de gebaande paden afwilden en het authentieke Vietnam wilden zien. En dat is gebeurd. We zijn letterlijk van de geasfalteerde wegen afgegaan en hebben allerlei bedrijfjes en minderheden bezocht. We zijn zelfs op plekken geweest waar zijzelf nog nooit eerder waren geweest.
We hebben ons de afgelopen twee dagen uitstekend vermaakt en zijn blij dat we hebben kunnen aangeven welke dingen we wel en welke attracties we niet wilden zien. Ze rijden goed en voorzichtig, vertellen veel (met humor en soms Nederlandse woorden), nemen je mee naar restaurantjes met locals en zorgen voor alles. Ook je bagage wordt zorgvuldig opgeborgen en bewaakt. Kortom, we hebben ons goed vermaakt met deze twee mannen. Zeker een aanrader, zorg wel vooraf dat je duidelijk maakt wat je wel en niet wilt. Viet en Chilli, jullie vertellen met trots over jullie land. Bedankt daarvoor!

Trip von DaLat nach MuiNe - Friday, 18 April 2008 09:24

 

Es war wirklich nicht leicht, sich bei dem großen Angebot von easy ridern für einen Anbieter zu entscheiden. Aufgrund von Empfehlungen habe ich mich dann aber zum Glück für Mr.Viet easy rider entschieden. Ich hatte für zwei Tage einen sehr netten guide (Mr.Chilli), der mir alle Fragen beantworten konnte, viele Geschichten parat hatte und sich wirklich bestens mit vietnamesischer Kultur und Geschichte und auch mit Religion auskennt. Ich war alleine unterwegs und habe mich während der gesamten Tour sicher gefühlt. Die Tour war ein einmaliges Erlebnis, das ich nicht missen möchte!

Vietnam du sud au nord - Friday, 11 January 2008 07:41 - France

2 eme voyage avec Mr Viet, on ne s'en lasse pas, ca fait toujours plaisir de retrouver un amis!!!!!!!!!!!
Gros programme encore cette fois-ci, de Dalat a Sa pa, en passant par Hue, Nha trang, Dien bien Phu et j'en passe.........
Les easy rider sont vraiment au top, et c'est, a mon avis le meilleur moyen de decouvrir le Vietnam sous toutes ses coutures. 
pour ceux qui ne veulent pas voyager comme on vite Dysneyland, Viet est l'homme qu'il vous faut!!!!!!!!!!

Pour voyageurs a la recherche d'authenticite! - Wednesday, 09 January 2008 13:45 - France

La decouverte a moto du Vietnam, avec un guide local, permet de tirer le maximum de son voyage, et de mieux comprendre le mode de vie des habitants. Mon guide M.Viet m'a fait decouvrir les nombreux metiers d'artisanats et de transformation des matieres agricoles qui constituent la richesse du Vietnam aujourd'hui. L explication des mode de fabrication a ete tres instructive. De plus, le voyage a moto permet de sortir des zones touristiques et de cotoyer le Vietnam profond et decouvrir la vie reelle des habitants.

A fair absolument! - Wednesday, 09 January 2008 00:41 - France

Cette expérience avec Dalat easy riders fut l'une de mes plus fortes au Vietnam. Ayant toujours évité les tours touristiques accompagnés, cette exception a fait de mon séjour un moment très enrichissant. En plus d'être d'excellents guides, ces motards en savent long sur leur pays et leur région : un bon moyen de découvrir la culture et les faces cachées d'un Vietnam secret et envoûtant. Je vous les recommande avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme.

Deux jours en richissants - Tuesday, 02 October 2007 13:18 - France

J' ai rencontre dans DALAT une jeune fille qui partait avec Easy Rider et qui m' a convaincue de faire de meme. Un appel donne par son chauffeur a fait arriver un charmant monsieur qui parlait tres bien le francais et m' a confirme que je pouvais partir sans risque avec lui.
Je ne suis plus une " petite jeune " et ce voyage de Dalat a Can Muot ? en 2 jours et une nuit au bord du lac de Dak m' a enchantee. Mon chauffeur et guide a pris du temps pour me faire decouvrir divers villages ethniques des plateaux vietnamiens, comme aussi la decouverte des cafeiers et des dejections des animaux mangeurs de graines utilisees pour une qualite appreciee et lorsque nous avions de la route a faire, il s, arretait toutes les 20 mn pour me dire de marcher 5 mn. Je recommande a ceux qui veulent decouvrir cette magnifique region du Vietnam de s' offrir ce type de deplacement. Il est possible d' aller jusqu' a Hoi An.

Hallo,Viet - Sunday, 06 May 2007 08:39 - Germany

Hallo, ich habe die Motorbike Tour mit Viet vpm Dalang nach Na Trang gemacht. Ich kann euch allen nủ án He legen: Wenn Ỉh dá Glueck habt Sao zu treffen, dann fahrt mit ihm zuammmen. Er kann Euch einiges ueber Vietnam und die Menschen eraehlen. Geschichtlich sieht er zwar alles durch die vietnamesische Brille, aber auch das ist sehr interessant. Ich koennte jetzt anfangen aufzuzaehlen, was wir alles gesehen haben, aber das erlebt Ihr besser selber. Viet ist aber auch ein guter Gespraechspartner und zeigt euch beim Essen alle Tricks und Rafinessen, die die vietnamesische Kueche zu bieten hat. Also langer Rede kurzer Sinn... Ihr werdet es nicht bereuhen. Viel Spass

Super Chilli! - Saturday, 21 April 2007 06:17 - Australia

At first I was a bit suspicious doing a tour on a motorbike especially me being a single woman...but I decided to go on a 2 day trip from Dalat to Nha Trang. On the first day I extended my trip to 3 days cause it just was awesome! Chilli from the Dalat Easyriders Club is such a smart and wise guy! He took me to so many places, stopped many times for me to take pictures, brought me to this lovely hill tribe family, explained everything to me about the country and the local people. Chilli is a very safe driver, knows a lot of Vietnam plus its history and was always concerned about my needs and wishes. He showed me the real Vietnam and I really regret it now that I didn't book a tour all the way up to Hoi An. Chilli even made my 27th birthday very special by organizing a small party and introducing me to real Vietnamese food! If you have the chance to go on a tour with the Easyriders, go for it! It was the best experience I've made during my time traveling the world. Thank you very much Chilli for sharing your wisdom and your stories with me! When I come back to Dalat - and I sure will at some stage - I definitely go on a tour again with Chilli! I'm already looking forward to that. Here's the link of the real, vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com and I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I did! Easy Riders Easy Riders Vietnam

Hoogtepunt van onze reis - Wednesday, 18 April 2007 07:53 - Germany

Vier dagen zijn we vanaf Dalat rondgetoerd en hebben zo'n 750 km afgelegd. We hebben diverse watervallen gezien, fabriekjes, Lak Meer, schitterende bergroutes en authentieke dorpjes. De lunches en diners waren prima en we kwamen op plaatsen waar we anders nooit op af waren gestapt. Onze gids/chauffeur was Mr. Viet en hij is een goede rijder, verteller en zeer betrouwbaar. Veel van hem geleerd en we kunnen wel zeggen dat we door deze trip nog meer van Vietnam zijn gaan begrijpen en houden. Hij heeft zelfs onze buskaartjes van Dalat naar Da Nang geregeld en wachtte echt tot alles tot in de puntjes was geregeld. Top service! Boeken dus... 

 

Top ervaring met viet als easyrider! - Sunday, 08 April 2007 13:37 - Holland

In onze vakantie in Vietnam hebben wij een trip gedaan met Viet door het Centrale-Hoogland. En het was een geweldige ervaring. Viet heeft heel veel kennis van de omgeving en haar geschiedenis. De trip past hij aan op je eigen interesses, dus voor ieder wat wils. Als je nog twijfelt om met een van de Easy Riders mee te gaan, dan is Viet degene die je de trip kan bieden die je zelf ook voor ogen hebt. Ben je niet tevreden over de tour? Dan is hij bereid je geld terug te geven. 

Ben je niet alleen geïnteresseerd in de natuur en wil je kennis maken met het echte Vietnam, zoals de cultuur, geschiedenis, Vietnamoorlog, boeddhisme filosofie, neem dan contact 
op met Viet. Zijn website:www.vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com

A nice trip!!! - Monday, 06 November 2006 08:15 - Switzerland

ich hab den 3tages trip von dalat nach nha trang gemacht. zuerst war ich sehr skeptisch, ob ich den trip machen soll, weil ich alleine reise. nun bin ich unendlich froh,dass ich Sinh getroffen habe und er mich überzeugt hat, ich bin seit fast zwei monaten unterwegs und diese 3 tage auf dem motorrad sind definitiv das highlight bis jetzt!! also ob allein reisend oder nicht, wer was anderes sehen will als saufende touris am strand, ist bei einer easy rider tour genau richtig!habe sehr viel über die locals, die natur, die geschichte&bhuddismus gelernt. Ich bin sicher die meisten guides sind gut, aber ich kann Sinh wärmstens empfehlen!! habe mich immer sicher gefühlt&jeden moment genossen! also: do it! do it! do it!

Van dalat naar nhatrang! - Tuesday, 02 May 2006 02:30 - Belgium

k deed een tweedaagse easyriders tour van Dalat naar Nha Trang! En het was een zeer goede ervaring!! Achteraf bekeken was twee dagen eigenlijk te kort. Maar het is nu eenmaal niet zo goedkoop. Toch zou ik het erfinancieel voor over hebben om de volgende keer een driedaagse tour te doen.
Zoals ook in vele andere reviews beschreven werd zie je op deze manier het echte Vietnam. Ik deed de tour met Viet en een stukje met Chilli. Deze mannen weten heel wat en geven veel uitleg. Je bezoekt plaatsen waar je anders nooit zou komen en je hebt unieke ontmoetingen.

Ik kan iedereen die naar Vietnam reist deze tour aanbevelen! En kies je voor deze organisatie, dan ben je ook zeker van kwaliteit!!

Ga er voor!

Awesome Central highlands!!! - Thursday, 20 April 2006 13:42 - Canada

This tour was the BEST thing we did in Vietnam, hands down! It showed us the real Vietnam. We INTERACTED with real Vietnamese - working class people like farmers, furniture makers, silk factories, whiskey makers, noodle and tapioca makers, restaurant owners, market sellers, school kids, teachers, minorities, etc. You will learn how the real Vietnamese live, how they see their own country, how they see the rest of the world. We learned more about the Vietnam War by seeing first hand key battle locations and evidence of the damage that occurred. We saw beautiful scenery - mountains, valleys, waterfalls, jungles, and farmland - all from the back of a motorcycle! Our riders and guides were Mr.Viet and Mr. Chilli. They were kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and most importantly, very careful and safe riders - riding on the back of their motorcycles was very comfortable. They pointed out and stopped in places we would never have seen on our own. Many of our best experiences in and memories of Vietnam are because of these stops. Yes, the price seems high, but three years from now, we will only remember how great the trip was. We started by booking a three day tour from Da Lat to Nha Trang, but after just one day we knew that wasn't going to be enough. We extended by 3 days to see more of the Ho Chi Minh trail and the affects of the war. Then, on day 5, we decided to extend our tour 5 more days to include the DMZ, where so much of the fighting took place. After 11 days on the motorcycle, we were sad to see the trip end. Not only were Mr. Viet and Mr. Chilli professional, they became our friends! If you like Vietnam ONLY because 

Amazing trip from DaLat to HoiAn with Chilli - Friday, 03 February 2006 03:32 - France

We did a  6 day tour from Da Lat to Hoi An in february 2006 with our fantastic guide Chilli. We had seen so many good reviews about Vietnam Easy Rider Tours and they did not disappoint. Since our early correspondence Mr Viet was fantastic at arranging our trip, and was happy to answer the many questions we had about riding in Vietnam. This was important to us as we were riding ourselves, my husband with his Australian motorbike license and me as his passenger. 
Our guide Chilli was fantastic, he gave us an incredible insight into Vietnam, it's people, culture, history, food and unique way of life. We got so much more out of our trip than we expected. Travelling through the rural farm communities, seeing how people lived and meeting many of the minority people made it really special. We saw only a few other Easy Rider groups during our trip, what we experienced was way off the tourist trail and that's why it was so fantastic! Chilli took us to the local eating spots, we ate what the locals did,and paid what they paid which was crazy cheap, fresh, super healthy and delicious! For us this dispelled many of the myths about eating street food - everything was really fresh and amazing. 
The ride itself was challenging to start with, but we quickly got in the groove with it all. You just have to work out how people and animals share the roads safely, and while crazy at times somehow it all works amazingly well. We have come home to Melbourne and now see how our regulated 'order' and car dominated transport system is so inefficient and requires so much massive infrastructure investment... there's gotta be a better way, and we could learn a thing or too from Vietnam. 
Our guide Chilli made the trip really special. His knowledge of the country's history, particularly the many wars over the last century, helped us understand Vietnam and it's people so much better. Given all the adversity it's amazing we were so welcomed... But that's the Vietnamese way, so friendly! 
We absolutely loved our motorbike trip. It was the highlight of our Vietnam trip and we would highly recommend this trip for anyone wanting to really experience Vietnam. 
Thanks Chilli and Viet. We had a great time and will be back!

A nice four day trip!!! - Wednesday, 20 April 2005 13:32 - America

I took a four day trip from Dalat to Saigon, stopping for three nights in both small towns and larger cities. I had Mr. Chilli as a guide. He is experienced in giving tours, speaks very good english, and has so much knowledge about the surrounding areas which we traveled to. Along the way, we tasted delicious foods, saw beautiful scenery, gained insight into the area's history, interacted with local people, among much more. The trip has been my favorite part of traveling through Vietnam so far. If you want to book a tour with Mr Chilli or just have some of your questions answered by him, his number is +84947232172.

 

Awesome - Monday, 18 April 2005 16:15 - Newzealand

Chilli and I arrived in Dalat hoping to connect with Easyrider Tours but not sure where or how. We need not have worried Mr Hung found us. He introduced himself and mad our lives so much easier showing us a glowing collection of recommendations and explaining to us where he would take us for our tour. It was exactly what we were after so we filled out the paper work left a deposit and looked forward to seeing him the next day being New Years Day. At 9am we were collected and taken to a hiking spot which provided wonderful views. Then off again to visit flower farms, weasel coffee farm, waterfalls, temples, time for lunch. Mr hung took us to a street cafe where we ate some traditional foods and showed us the best way to enjoy them. We then took off to the silk farm where we were amazed at how it starts and ends in beautiful fabric. We then made our way back to Dalat stopping in at the Crazy house of which we had never heard. We had the most wonderful day out and Mr Hung was a fantastic guide answering all our questions in his excellent spoken English. We would like to thank Mr Hung for making us feel at home in his country and city we felt very special the way he looked after us. Ad we did share lots of laughs too. A perfect day if we must say. THANKS MR HUNG and Chilli.

Wonderful trip!!! - Monday, 11 April 2005 13:36 - Australia

This is a little late but better late than never. My friend I completed our third trip with Viet and Huy back in October, we have travelled all over Vietnam with these two perfect gentlemen, our first trip was Hue to Vung Tau over 9 days covering some great scenery, then we did an 11 day ride starting again from Hue finishing in Hanoi which was fanatastic,our rides keep getting better and better, then our latest trip we did the North West North East loop starting in Hanoi with the guys. This ride fantastic the scenery in the North has to be seen to be believed. Some of the mountain roads where unreal to ride and once again Huyman kept us amused and entertained and Viet kept us on the straight and narrow. They knew some of the best roads to take, they found nice clean hotels and the food was always good. We even visited a family from the previous years trip and they remembered us which was great. I can't recomend these guys highly enough and we are in the process of booking our 4th trip with them to visit the Mekong area. Thanks again Viet and Huyman for another great trip and I'm looking forward to our next. Chuc Mung Nam Moi to you and your families.

"Hola a todos los aventureros del mundo mundial desde Madrid. Solo recomendaros vivir la experiencia de recorrer el Vietnam profundo con estos expertos y simpáticos moteros. En Agosto de 2004 tuve la oportunidad de conocer a Mr. Viet Mr.Chilli, dos tipos muy enrrollados que nos llevaron de paquete en sus motos a mi chica y a mí durante 1000kms en 5 días desde Dalat a Hoi An. Nos enseñaron cantidad de sitios únicos, visitamos minorías étnicas, fábricas, entramos en casas particulares y nos presentaron a amigos suyos. 
UNA VIVENCIA INOLVIDABLE!!! 
Olvidé deciros que somos Kiko y Mónica."

Good Chilli! - Tuesday, 17 August 2004 05:07 - Netherlands

I was travelling in Vietnam with a friend when we stumbled upon Chilli ,Mr Chilli at the bus station in Da Lat. We were planning on maybe going on a tour with Easy Riders, but did not have any concise plans. After the sales pitch, we decided to go with a three day trip from Da Lat to Nha Trang. We were promised that we would get to see the countryside and the rural areas of Vietnam, and stay away from the usual tourist traps. It has not been an disappointment. The trip has been great. We have seen a lot of astonishing scenery, as well as Vietnamese daily life activities. And we have had a lot of GREAT and affordable meals. If the trip is part of the beginning of your journey, it will be a good introduction to the local cuisine. I drove with Mr Chilli, who is both a funny guy and an experienced driver. He is comfortable to ride with, and seems to know the roads very well. I would absolutely recommend a trip with these guys. It's been an amazing trip, both in terms of experience and enjoyment. If you are considering a journey by motorbike in Vietnam, these are the guys who should take you

Mr Viet's real vietnam - Sunday, 09 May 2004 13:01 - England

If your going to do an easy rider tour, you've got to at least try and track this man down, Mr Viet was the manager of vietnamoriginaleasyrider.com,it was such a great idea/ tour that there are hundreds of copycats now. But if you are lucky enough to find him, or him find you then I'm sure he'll tell you "he's the key to the real Vietnam". We found him by chance.. we pretty quickly realized he was infact the key to seeing the real vietnam as he puts it!!. he takes you to places that others won't, has more facts, has more stories and always has more fun.... he's been doing it long enough that he's got it down to an art.

If you are thinking of going for a ride then go for the original and the best.... you won't regret it
if you want to contact him
