Tips & Reviews
Dat is a great guy! He helped me buy my dream motorbike to travel through Vietnam with! He taught me how to drive a manual and added any extras I needed with the bike! Over all an incredible experience, and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!!
My mates and I wanted to savour our limited time in Vietnam and took a motorbike trip with Dat. Cool guy who went up and beyond to cater to what we wanted since we wanted to see specific places in Dalat and Nha Trang (didn't want to see much tourist places, rather we wanted more of Dalat's mountains and Nha Trang's beaches).
Should have booked more trips with Dat around Vietnam, would be great to experience the local perspectives from a professional guide. Thumbs up!
It is our first time in Vietnam and we got tired of travelling with a bus or train (we had a bad experience!), we decided to check TripAdvisor in Dalat for a motorbike tour to Mui Ne. We spend 30 mins online to search and we found Dat's through vietnam motorbike service. Even though it had a few reviews, they had quality and helpful reviews. We wanted to be in the pictures on the site! We booked him the night before and Dat picked us up in our hotel.
We stopped by the paradise lake, pongour waterfalls, enjoyed the mountain, rice field, red sand dunes and dragon fruit farm. Beautiful! You will never see anything like it if you follow the typical tours. If you really want to experience Vietnam, Through Vietnam is worth every penny.
Me and my friends from the NEtherlands booked a tour with through vietnam from Dalat to Hoian. We are 4 guys and we had our own big bikes with Dat as the guide and it was so awesome. 5 days was not enough, we wish we booked another trip from Hoian to Phong Nha national park! If you ever decide to visit Vietnam, Dat's motorbike tours are worth it. We saw some minority villages, ate like locals and learnt a lot about vietnam that you don't read in lonely planet. He organized everything, even brought extra rain coats when it started to rain. Quality service. Really enjoyed it, we'll be back! 😉
My friend and I met Dat from a recommendation and decided to do the countryside day tour since we will be leaving to Mui Ne the next day. We completely enjoyed the tour since Dat spoke really good English and expressed the sites with a lot of information and enthusiasm. Coffee farms, silk factory and waterfalls (which was our favourite). Instead of booking a bus, we decided to take a 2 day Dalat-Muine trip by motorbike. Dat took care of everything and we got to see the local insight on the red sand dunes, fairy stream and fishing village. He knew when the busy times were so we we packaged our tour to make sure that we got the most of the places we visited. Will recommend Dat to my friends from the UK visiting anytime soon!!! Thanks Dat!
I am travelling with my boyfriend and have one month to travel from the South - North Vietnam. We found Dat on Tripadvisor and from the description on his website, we decided to do a 4-day tour from Muine - Dalat - Nhatrang and it was fantastic! High quality tour. I couldn't drive, so my boyfriend rented a dirt bike from Dat and I sat behind. We saw the true beautyy of Vietnam. The price was good considering the fact that we saw plenty of farms, waterfalls, beautiful scenery, san dunes, beaches, mountains, etc. we basically saw everything you need to see from a local perspective. It was definitely a highlight of our month trip since Dat spoke very well and he was very passionate about the places we've been to. It rained a few times, but Dat was prepared with rain coats for us all so it was definitely a quality trip. Hope we can book him for the rest of our trips in Vietnam! Recommend the Muine-Dalat-Nhatrang trip, thumbs up
We started our trip as a 2 day trip from Da Lat to Nha Thrang with Chris and Dat. They showed us some of the highlights from the city and country side and adjusted the road to our wishes. The roads were great and the views were amazing! We were so excited about the tour that we booked an extra 3 day tour from Hoi An to Phong Nha National Park. We had such a great time with these guys while also exploring the country side at the same time. After a bad situation i had before, i was on the back of Dat's motorbike and i had a great time and was feeling safe at all the time. Would definitely recommend it to everyone. Some of our best days in Vietnam, thanks to you guys! Merci beaucoup!
We met Dat at Sunny Dalat Homestay and was immediately impressed with his local knowledge and fluid english. Initially we opted for the city day tour which included a visit to the local weasel poop coffee farm, silk factory, elephant waterfall, crazy house and railway station at a very reasonable price. Encouraged by his enthusiasm we then chose to continue with Dat all the way to Nha Trang; a two day tour encompassing the BEST views in and around Dalat using the best roads through minority villages and local farms which would be impossible to reach using out of date online maps such as maps me etc. I cannot express enough the quality of the local knowledge Dat possesses. The evening was spent at a comfortable homestay in a local village where again we got to eat local dinner/breakfast. The second day we went through many farms including pepper, banana, sugar cane and mango where we got to pick a few and eat them later on at Bai Dai (long beach, a thoroughly beautiful spot 20k outside Nha Trang). I highly recommend this tour to anyone fortunate enough to encounter Dat along their travels!
Also on a side note, Dat is a mechanical engineer and thus can provide any help on any mechanical issues related to motorbikes along the way as well as for future note.
Last minute decision to go to Dalat-Nha Trang so it was really great how Dat replied immediately to what I wanted. We were able to see enough of Dalat on the Saturday before going to a quick tour around Nha Trang. His English is really good and was able to relay info about the roads less travelled and places with less tourist (bonus). The motorbike was surprisingly comfortable and we had a great time (with very spontaneous adventures - eating jack fruit with locals!). Would definitely recommend his service for future trips in Vietnam, thanks Dat!
As I was not adventurous enough to join my partner on the canyoning tour I decided to take a private day trip around da lat with Dat. This was a great experience and very reasonably priced Dat was very friendly and helpful to myself and also other travellers with met throughout the day. I would highly recommend taking a trip with Dat , he also has the best motor bike in Dat Lat!!!! Thanks Dat
