What can I say except that Jimmy was an amazing tour guide! Beyond amazing! Doing the Motorbike trip from Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh with him was one of the best decisions I made in my two month trip in South East Asia. I feel like we got the truest most genuine look at the real Vietnam thanks to him! He and his colleague Tuan are two of the loveliest people I’ve met, always making sure you feel safe and comfortable. There was never a time when I questioned anything or felt unsafe at all. Theres no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have seen even half the stuff I got to see when on this tour with them! They took us to places I hadn’t even heard about and showed us all the places where locals go to eat some delicious Vietnamese meals. Anytime you wanna stop along the way for whatever reason it may be, taking pictures of the beautiful scenery or if your not feeling well they have no problem stopping with you and waiting. Tan told me at one point not to worry about being on the bike as he had my life in his hands and I can honestly say I didn’t have a worry in the world! There is no reason you shouldn’t do this trip! Go for it and you won’t have one regret! Thank you, Jimmy the man and Tuan for an unforgettable experience of a life time!
Thanks to Easy Rider Travel, I got an unforgettable trip in Nha Trang.
We met the best tour guide Jimmy in Nha Trang. We joint the one day bike trip for Chicken BBQ at countryside which is not commonly experienced by tourists. Starting at buying chicken and spices at the local market away from the tourist spot, we experienced the local culture. The view and the jungle with waterfall is fantastic.Remember to bring your swimming suit as you may dive from height at waterfall! Besides, riding motor bike at Nha Trang is comfortable and exciting. The company providing good bike for tourist.
Due to the great experience, we also joint diving trip and another bike trip to go around the city in the other two days.
In short, it is recommended to join tours at the company:
1. All tour guides are friendly and talkative.
2. The company know how to provide best experience for tourists.
3. Valuable price for all tours.
Having dealt with the hustle and bustle of Saigon for a week myself and my partner longed for a more picturesque and scenic experience and off we went to Nah Trang. When we arrived we decided the best way to experience the beautiful landscape would be with a local tour and Jimmy and the Easy Rider Travel team seemed to fit the bill entirely.
Upon discussed with Jimmy of what we wanted to see and do that would fit in with our timescales he suggested his 1 day “Hidden Waterfall Trip” and it was the best decision we had made our whole holiday!
Unfortunately early in to our trip my partner fell from her bike cutting her arms and legs and at this point i can’t thank Jimmy and the locals enough for their support. Jimmyrushed to a local pharmacy to grab supplies whilst the locals did what they could to ensure she was OK. Jimmy cleaned and bandaged her cuts and was extremely professional and caring. This is where local knowledge and a genuine sense of care was required and Jimmy didn’t disappoint!
After she was all patched up and the nerves had settled we carried on to the waterfall stopping in the local towns to see how the traditional reed mats and rice paper are made before finally stopping at a market for Jimmy to pick up our lunch.
Riding up into the mountains the views were breathtaking and after a great ride we stopped for lunch at the first waterfall, a beautiful blue flowing river with giant rocks and a small sandy beach.. it was like paradise. As we cooled off in the water Jimmy cooked us Roast Chicken in a chilli glaze over an open fire. It was perfect.. the food the scenery i just couldn’t find fault in anything.
After lunch it was off on foot across the river to trek into the jungle to the hidden falls. The trekking was harder than anticipated, expect a bit of climbing, crawling, and a lot of sweating (there are no paths here!) but if you enjoy that sort of stuff like we did you will be in your element. We stopped at the first waterfall and jumped into the cool deep blue water to cool off and after a short break carried on to the next which was even more staggering. The Jungle was beautiful and it was an experience we will never forget for all the right reasons.
Jimmy was attentive, entertaining and genuinely passionate about his work. His English and cooking skills are fantastic too! We couldn’t have asked for better scenery, a better guide or a better experience.
Thank you Jimmy and Easy Rider Travel – Day Tours! By far the best experience we had in Vietnam and something we would have never discovered without your knowledge and experience. I can highly recommend Jimmy and his team and actively encourage you to give it a try. If you only have one day to do a trip like we did then do this one! It will not disappoint!
All the best, Andy & Lauren
