    Pojechalismy na wspaniala wycieczke z Wujkiem 9 - pokazal nam prawdziwy Vietnam, lokalne wisoki i pyszne jedzenie. Wujek ma prawdziwa pasje dla swojego zawodu i w dodatku jest wspanialym i smiesznym czlowiekiem - goroco polecam kazdemu kto jest gotow na przygode! Nie ma lepszego sposobu zeby zobaczyc piekne widoki, poznac lokalne zwyczaje i stworzyc niezaponiane wspomnienia.

    Wiujek 9 policzyl tylko €70 za dzien - naprawde warto! Dziekujemy za piekne wspomnienia!

    Si lo que buscas es salir del ajetreo de la ciudad y vivir una experiencia auténtica adentrándote en la Vietnam profunda lejos de los circuitos turísticos prefabricados, es un tour muy recomendable. Uncle Nine conoce todo sobre la zona y estuvo muy pendiente de nosotras en todo momento. Es una persona muy afable y divertida, lo pasamos genial y aprendimos mucho sobre la jungla y las minorías de la zona. 100% recomendable!!

    Danang - Hoi An

    We did a 2 day tour around Danang ending up in Hoi An, where we went up Monkey mountain, on Hai Van Pass, to Prau, My Son heritage sanctuary, and Ho Chi Minh road, as well as visiting a local minority village. Uncle Nine was so well informed on everything and everywhere we went to so we got to really understand everything we were seeing. He let us decide what things we wanted to see, as well as adding in his own recommendations, so the trip was really catered to what we wanted. We got to see so much more than we would have from an average trip - alongside plenty of photo-opportunity stops to help us remember where we went. The hotel that was included in the trip was so nice. Uncle Nine made sure that everywhere we went we weren't rushed, and told lots of funny jokes to keep us entertained when we were on the bikes - which felt so much safer than I expected as someone who has never been on a motorbike before!. We had such a great time and feel like we saw so much more of the "real" Danang by going on this trip! It was so much easier to get around as well on the bikes - and as uncle Nine was driving it meant that you could see so much more of the beautiful scenery around you - including a variation of exotic plantations as well as all the mountains. He was really flexible on what we did - originally we had arranged to go somewhere else but he had no problem with us swapping to Monkey Mountain. It was such a great trip and I highly recommend you book with Uncle Nine!! Thanks for a great trip! :)

    I met Uncle 9 at Da Nang station and he helped me to plan an itinerary of what to see during my stay. I booked 2 days with him and it was the best value for money I spent during my whole time in Vietnam. He is a safe driver, his English is excellent and he is very, very funny. I had such an amazing experience and have recommended booking a tour with him to everybody I’ve met since. There’s no doubt that he is the best easy rider in Da Nang!

    Hoihoi Belgen,

    Ik heb gisteren een dag doorgebracht achterop de moto met Duong en ik heb ervan genoten. Ik ben nogal beperkt qua reizen en sightseeing omdat ik niet alleen op een moto durf en dan biedt Real Easyriders een perfecte oplossing. Afhankelijk van wat je wil zien neemt hij je mee op trip. In mijn geval zijn we de Hai Van Pass afgereden en nadien het Son Tra Schiereiland aka Monkey Mountain. Wauw! Er was geen kat of mens te zien, wel een paar aapjes en hele mooie rotsformaties along the road. We hebben afgesloten bij The Lady Buddha. Ik kan alvast zeggen dat ik al veel meer van Da Nang gezien heb dan wanneer ik aan het strand of in de stad was gebleven. Uncle 9 is een zeer vriendelijke zorgzame man(hij toverde oogdruppels tevoorschijn toen ik iets in mijn oog had bijvoorbeeld) met humor en bovenal voelde ik mij absoluut veilig. Dus voor allen die Da Nang graag zouden verkennen vanop de moto, als passagier (of hij zou zelfs ook een motto voor je kunnen regelen begreep ik, om mee te rijden) dan is Uncle 9 your man!!
    Dankjewel voor de fijne dag Duong! Tot ziens �

    Uncle 9 est super ! Si vous voulez passer par les sentiers battus et gagner du temps pour les visites, il est clairement votre homme.
    Il vous fera visiter des lieux loin du tourisme de masse et il est hyper attentionné et drôle.
    C'est certes un peu plus cher que d'autre transport mais croyez moi voyagé avec lui n'a pas de prix.
    Une de mes meilleures expériences au Vietnam.
    Merci à uncle 9 et de ses petites attentions envers nous et son immersion au pres des loco
    Je l'ai rencontrer à la gare de nha trang

    I met Uncle 9 at the Da Nang station and he offered to take me for a tour of the region with his bike. Usually I'm not a tour guy, but we had good exchange from start because he open minded. In the end it was a great experience because he is a native of the region and therefore take me to traditional villages and among others mas take to the places I wanted to see for myself. I really saw authentic Vietnam and so my memories are amazing, all the way through places, landscapes and food.
    I am delighted to meet with Uncle 9, and would like to see him again if I come back. I really advise travelers to take some time with him because crossing the mountains with his Honda and rubbing shoulders with people in remote places will make you have no regrets. In addition, the price is very reasonable and we really contribute to Vietnamese who in some places have needs.
    Thank you Uncle 9, a wonderful person that I will not forget.

    We did a two days tour with uncle 9 and Tung. They made it a great experience for us. Uncle 9 knows a lot about the nature ad cultures in Centralvietnam and took us to places we would have missed or just passed by without his instructions. He is a very funny and talkative guy and we could ask any question we wanted. The tour was well planned but individually adapted to our interests and questions. We highly recommend a tour with uncle 9 around the Hoi An/Da Nang area, which is a overwhelmingly beautiful landscape. Cam on, Gesa and Göntje

    Uncle 9! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for showing us the real Vietnam. These past 2 days with you and Suu have created the best memories I could have hoped for.
    I never imagined that we would do a 2 day motorbike tour, especially as I’m a little scared of motorbikes. But you made me feel so safe and my smile never disappeared. We said we wanted to see how Vietnam really lived, and you showed us exactly that. With you, we got to meet the most beautiful welcoming local people, and to experience things we wouldn’t have on our own. Things like eating special dried ginger at a cinnamon farm, seeing minority women weave beautiful bags, make our own rice noodle, explore local food markets, see the most beautiful mountains and of course make new friends.
    We will never forget what we have experienced here, and we can’t believe it has only been 2 days! We have gorgeous photos, souvenirs to take home with us, as well as new jokes, as Uncle 9 has a wicked sense of humour!!
    Thank you for taking such great care of us, we are already planning our next trip with you.

    We usually avoid tour guides and groups as much as possible but have to say that the tour with Uncle9 and Trung was the highlight of our trip.
    This doesn’t feel like a normal tour, it feels like a couple of locals showing you the things that normally get missed.
    We had amazing food, amazing sights, a wealth of knowledge of both present and past and we were entertained every step of the way.
    We only had time for a 2 day, 1 night tour from Da Nang, into the mountains for a night and then back to Hoi-an but wish we could spend more time with these boys, they were just great, chill blokes who love sharing their amazing country with anybody who is interested.
    Getting off the beaten path and learning more about the minorities away from the hustle and bustle of the coast was the ultimate highlight.
    We both felt incredibly safe and comfortable and reckon it was worth every penny.
    Most of all it was just heaps of fun! Definitely recommend.

    Pas d'arnaque, ce type est un champion ! J'ai passé une superbe journée avec lui ce 21 février 2019 entre Hoi An et Hue, au regret de ne pouvoir prolonger le temps passé avec lui. De très bon conseil, il personnalisera votre expérience en fonction de vos envies et grâce à sa connaissance parfaite de la région, ses habitants et leurs coutumes. Un grand monsieur dont je me souviendrai pour longtemps !

    Hallo! Ich und mein Freund Lukas haben zum ersten Mal eine Motorradtour gemacht und waren daher recht aufgeregt und wussten nicht so recht was uns erwartet. Dass wir die Tour mit Uncle 9 gemacht haben war wohl eine der besten Entscheidungen die wir je trafen und ich wünsche jedem, so eine fantastische Erfahrung zu machen! Er und seine Kollegen zeigten uns Vietnam in seiner natürlichsten Form, wir haben wunderbare Menschen getroffen und unglaubliche Landschaften entdeckt. Uncle 9 ist eine tolle Persönlichkeit, wir haben uns zu jedem Zeitpunkt der Reise sehr sicher gefühlt und schätzen alles was er für uns getan hat sehr. Egal woher du kommst, wie groß oder alt du bist, Frau oder Mann, allein oder mit Freunden, wenn du Vietnam von seiner ehrlichen und untouristischen Seite sehen willst, ist diese Tour etwas für dich. Unsere Tour dauerte übrigens zwei Tage von Da Nang nach Prao und zurück, auf dem Weg sahen wir viele kleine Dörfer und besuchten Minderheiten. Vielen Dank an Uncle 9, My und Hong für die unvergessliche Zeit! Lukas und Vera aus Wien, 7. Februar 2019

    My two day tour into the mountains from Hoian to Danang was incredible! As a solo female traveler who is 19, I felt very safe and comfortable with Uncle 9! He is extremely knowledgeable about his country and will stop to explain anything to you. We were constantly stopping on the side of the road so he could demonstrate the remedies of certain plants and of course take many photos with us! He is very funny and made my trip the best it could be. This has been a highlight of my trip in Vietnam and I recommend that anyone, young or old, take a tour with him. His English is also very good and he will re explain things that you don't understand.

    Uncle nine めちゃめちゃ最高でした!初めてのベトナム、初めての海外1人旅で色々行くにも運転怖いし、1人でも参加できるツアーを必死に探してたところ、見つけたUncle nine. Duongさんの写真が載ってるし、安全運転て書いてあったからよし!と思って問い合わせて本当に良かった!私はMy Sonの1 day tourをお願いしましたが、ローカルの気分を満喫したいとか、明日は五行山(Marble mountain)に行きたいとか色々話をしてたら、五行山も行こう!とまさかのアレンジしてくれました。道中はベトナム戦争に関する建物や遺跡から、フルーツの説明やら気になるところをポイントポイントで止まってくれたりしました。田舎の方では、ローカルしか使わない川の向こう岸にわたる船にバイクごと乗って渡ったり、ライスペーパー作ってる人のところで見るだけかと思ったら、ライスペーパー作りをちょっとやらせてもらって出来たてライスペーパーを食べさせてもらったり、楽しいことばかりでした。Da nangに行ったら、彼のツアーは絶対おすすめです!もし英語が心配でも、今までのツアー参加者のコメントブック見せてもらったら、英語が苦手な人でも楽しめたみたいなので、怖がらないで是非参加してみて下さい!

    We met uncle 9 on the trainstation in Da Nang. At first we were a bit sceptic about riding on a motorbike but after his stories we decided to just do it. He brought us to our hostel (that was our main goal) but we liked it so much that we also booked a 2day tour. Early in the morning we left from Hoi An and drove to the mountains. He showed us the most beautifull places and the nicest people: The real Vietnam. We went to little markets where we could taste some local food and meet the people. He also stops when there is a nice view so you can take pictures. The tour was really cool so DO IT if you have the chance! Uncle9 likes to make jokes and knows a lot of cardtricks! (when you are lucky he will teach you one ;)). Dont be afraid to do it, they (uncle 9 and his friend Trung) drive very save! We are happy we met Uncle9 and would really recomend it!

    I arranged a day tour of the Hai Van pass and marble mountains with Uncle 9 as well as a 2 day 1 night ride from Hoi An to Hue, and I couldn't be happier with the service I got! Uncle 9 shared so much great information that I wouldn't have gotten traveling by myself or by bus, and I feel I really got to enjoy the back country roads and villages of a beautiful part of Vietnam.
    He was very attentive to my comfort, was a safe driver, and arranged for great accommodation for our overnight stay in Prao. I will definitely be recommending Uncle 9 tours to my friends and will be contacting him next time I'm in Vietnam!

    Wir hatten sehr, sehr coole 6 Tage mit Uncle Nine und My! Wir erkundeten zusammen den Ho-Chi-Minh-Highway und beide zeigten uns zwischen Da Nẵng, Hue und der Grenze zu Laos das “echte” Vietnam abseits der Touristenzentren. Uncle Nine sprach uns am Bahnhof in Da Nẵng an und wir waren anfangs eher zurueckhaltend (jeder will dort irgendwas von einem). Aber wir fassten schnell Vertrauen (auch wegen der vielen, vielen positiven Bewertungen ueber ihn im Netz) und wir wurden mit 6 faszinierenden Tagen belohnt. Begegnungen mit Dorfbewohnern, Erklaerungen zu Geschichte, Kultur und dem Alltagsleben der Menschen: An ”dieses” Vietnam werden wir uns fuer immer erinnern!
    Danke Uncle Nine, danke My fuer eine tolle Zeit!

    I arrived in Da Nang not knowing what to see or do. At the train station I met Uncle 9 who persuaded me that take a bike tour with him. What a fantastic experience. Uncle 9 speaks English and explains everything as we tour around. He is an amazing tour guide. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

    Kjæresten min og jeg møtte Uncle 9 og hans kompis på togstasjonen i Da Nẵng, etter en 14 timers togtur. Vi skulle til Tam Coc og ble tilbudt skyss på deres motorsykler for $5 per pers. Det hørtes deilig ut med litt vind i luggen, så vi takket ja og de stroppet på de gigantiske sekkene våre. Et par dager senere ble vi med på en to dagers\en natt-tur og det har vært helt fantastisk! Vi har lært masse, fått sett ting og steder vi aldri hadde sett på egenhånd og jeg anbefaler denne måten å reise på på det varmeste! Terningkast 6

    THANK YOU!!!!! For an amazing tour through the northern part of Vietnam. It was an incredible and unforgettable experience to see different parts of Vietnam that we would have never seen otherwise. It was a wonderful tour and we couldn’t thank you enough for taking care of us throughout the entire time. I HIGHLY recommend this tour with Uncle 9 to explore Vietnam and to see different places you wouldn’t normally see on your own or ever. Thank you again

    My mom and I just finished a 2 day trip from Hoi An to Prao then Hai Van Pass and back to Danang. Coundnt day enough great things about our tour and Uncle 9!! His great sense of humor, vast knowledge, and amazing life stories helped make our trip one we will never forget! We hadn’t planned to do the trip originally but when we met Uncle 9 at the train station and he took us for coffee and told us about his tours and showed us other tourists experiences we agreed to do a 2 do tour. Wouldn’t have learned near as much about Vietnam history, culture and way of life if we hadn’t done this tour. Would recommend this tour to anyone!!

    Wir haben die 3 Tages Tour mit Uncle 9 gemacht und es war eines der besten Entscheindungen die wir je getroffen haben.
    Er ist so herzlich und bemüht in dem was er tut und er hat stets gute Laune!
    Seine guten Kartentricks und Witze sollte man sich wirklich merken ;)
    Ich habe die 3 Tage sehr genossen.
    ich würde es auf jeden Fall nochmal machen und ich kann es auch nur empfehlen!!
    (oder wie die Kühe sagen würden:"one moreee" :))

    Thank you so much uncle 9!!

    Ik heb een 2 daagse tour gedaan met uncle nine en het was fantastisch. Hij bracht me naar fantastische plekken waar overduidelijk een stuk minder touristen waren. Tijdens de tour heb ik enorm veel kunnen zien van de omgeving en de cultuur. Hij regelde lekker eten en heeft me op prachtige plekken gebracht. Hij rijdt veilig en was super netjes voorbereid. Ik heb genoten en het was zeker het geld waard.

    Uncle 9 and his collegue Bom picked us up at Da Nang train station. Although we planed to take the bus to Hoi An, we agreed on a motorbike trip and having a coffee with this heartful, funny and nice guy we signed the contract for a 2-days-trip through the mountains near Da Nang. This was the best decision we made and we only regret we are not having more time to learn about the nature, the different ethnics, the agriculture and the food of vietnam. Uncle 9 showed us his country in an unforgettable way!!! We thank you so much for the pleasant time we had! Back in Germany we will start saving money for a longer trip with Uncle 9. See you soon!!

    My gỉlfriend and i met uncle 9 at danang trainstation and offered to take us to hoi an. Not long after meeting uncle 9 we came to know his funny personality. After stoping on the way to hoi an at a roadside cafe we agreed to do a two day tour from hoi an to hue. At first we were hesitant but soon after seeing beautiful scenery in the mountains and uncle 9 great knowledge of his country and it's history we both agreed to extend our trip two more days. We visited minority villages with locals who all greeted us with big smiles, we gained great knowledge of local roadside fruits, veggies and nuts (yum), and took back roads with incredible views. All in all it was a 1000 star tour!! Thank you so much Uncle 9 for teaching and showing us so much of your country! This has truly been the highlight of our 6 month long trip through SE Asia.

    J'ai passé 3 jours avec Uncle 9. Nous sommes partis de Danang pour aller à Hué, puis nous avons traversé les montagnes pour nous rendre à P'Rao et nous avons fini à Hoi Han.

    Au delà du plaisir de voir ces paysages magnifiques à bord d'une moto, passer ces instants avec Uncle 9 été tout bonnement merveilleux. Si comme moi, vous souhaitez découvrir le véritable Vietnam, loin des sentiers touristiques habituels, n'hésitez pas une seconde pour faire appel à ses services.

    Il vous apportera tout le confort d'un voyage organisé et saura se mettre en 4 pour prendre soin de vous. Il connait le pays merveilleusement bien : sa culture, sa végétation, ses habitants et son histoire. A ses côtés, nous avons tout bonnement le sentiment de faire parti de ce magnifique pays.

    We met uncle 9 and his friend Ty at the train station in Da Nang and he helped us to get to our hotel. He told us about easy rider and had many good ideas for travelling. He and and Ty are very sympathic an drive very safe, so we booked a tour with them. It was the best decision we cuold make! We had 3 great days and discovered the beautiful landscape and its people in the highlands. Uncle 9 visited with us friendly minorities an told us a lot about them. He knows very much about agriculture, politics an history - he is a very good guide. And best of all: he likes joking and is always funny. So we had a very nice time. We got to know many interesting things and enjoyed our holiday. In the evening we sat together for a drink and it was also very funny! We can recomand this tour for people, who wants to discover the nice landscape in the mountain - far away from main tourism. It was the highlight of our holidays and we hope, someday we can do this again :-)

    Thank you so much!!!

    Today we went with the uncle 9 tours from danang to hue. Een wonderful experience and definitly a must do when you go to Vietnam!
    We started this morning (7am) in the Pouring rain ( read: typhoon).
    Uncle 9 and his friend had everything for us. A complete rain suit with boots and a helmet.
    All the way to hue it was raining like hell but we had the most fun ever.
    When we arrived in hue the weather cleared and after doing the sites we went back to danang.
    On the motorcycle the vieuws (hai van Pass) were magnificent, instant hapiness.
    We would more then recommend it!

    Thanks uncle nine for a fantastic two days. The greatest thing about uncle nine is his enthusiasm. I think he took more photos than I did and never got impatient or rushed me. The bike was awesome and he's a really safe driver. If anything I wished he'd go faster. It was a really fun way to drink a lot of great coffee, eat good food and see the beautiful mountains

    The following recession is in englisch and german. Die nachfolgende Rezession ist in Englisch und Deutsch.

    English Version:
    Me and my boyfriend met the Easy Rider at the trainstation of Danang. At first sight we only had planned transfer to our hotel in Hoi An. Our large backpacks were simply loaded onto the luggage rack of bikes and so we went to Hoi An. The ride was pleasant refreshing by the wind and you could consider the environment directly, which is more pleasant than just looking through a car window. We made a short stop at a cafe to drink some tea while the Easy Riders were speaking abount the tours they've done so far. It was not that difficult to combine our original plan with a tour with our New frinds. We quickly arranged a tour without having to throw all our planning into disarray. We agreed a 3 day tour. First from Hoi An to My Son on the Ho Chi Minh Road after to the north. One night there, looking at the grave of Tu Duc Hue. On the third day, we went even to Bach-na National Park.
    The tour cost about 9,000,000 for two people and an overnight stay. (The others we paid by ourselves.) The deposit of 4,000,000 is to cover the running costs. The rest will be paid at the end of the tour.
    The tour was definitely great that's for sure. We have seen so much things, especially things we would never have had noticed, if we had been on the road with moped alone. For example sesame grows at the roadside and even tens of other plants and fruit, a rubbertree, villages of Vietnam's minority groups, how to make rice paper and pigeons build their nests in cases of old televisions. It was great that people were not adjusted in the villages to tourists. They even did not try to sell anything. They were only interested in who is just coming but have otherwise made their daily things further. It was like normale and everyday lifestyle.
    But my personal highlight was dinner together with the Easy Riders. Especially Uncle 9 has so much knowledge about the country, its history and also about all kinds of plants that abeles him to talk about all day long if nessessary. And his card tricks are also quiet interesting. ;)
    If we travel to Vietnam again, we will repeat a tour like this in any case again. However, I believe that my butt can't stand more than three days on a motorbike. :P


    Deutsche Version:
    Mein Freund und ich trafen die easyrider am Bahnhof von Danang. Eigentlich wollten wir nur zu unserem Hotel nach Hoi an gebracht werden. Unsere großen Rucksäcke wurden kurzerhand auf die Gepäckträger der Motorräder geladen und so ging es ab Richtung Hoi An. Die Fahrt war angenehm erfrischend durch den Fahrtwind und man konnte die Umgebung mal nicht nur durch ein Autofenster betrachten. Wir machten einen kurzen Stop um einen Tee zu trinken und dabei erzählten uns die easyrider, was sie so für Touren machten. Es war nicht schwierig unsere ursprüngliche Planung und eine Tour aufeinander abzustimmen. Schnell hatten wir gemeinsam eine Tour zusammengestellt, ohne unsere gesamte Planung über den Haufen werfen zu müssen. Wir vereinbarten eine 3 Tagestour. Zuerst von Hoi An über My Son über die Ho chi Minh road Richtung Norden. Eine Übernachtung und dann weiter nach Hue und dort noch das Grab von Tu Duc angeschaut. Am dritten Tag ging es dann noch zum Bach-na Nationalpark.
    Die Tour kostete 9.000.000 für zwei Personen und eine Übernachtung. (Die andere haben wir selbst bezahlt.) Die Anzahlung von 4.000.000 ist zur Deckung der laufenden Kosten. Der Rest wird zum Ende der Tour bezahlt.
    Die Tour hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt. Wir haben so viel gesehen was uns selbst gar nicht aufgefallen wäre, wenn wir allein mit dem Moped unterwegs gewesen wären. Zum Beispiel Sesam der am Straßenrand wächst und noch zig andere Pflanzen und Früchte, einen Kauchukbaum, Dörfer von vietnamesischen Minderheiten, wie man Reispapier herstellt und Tauben die in Fernsehern ihr Nest bauen. Vor allem fand ich es toll, dass die Menschen in den Dörfern nicht auf Touristen eingestellt waren. Uns wurde nichts versucht zu verkaufen, die Menschen waren lediglich interessiert, wer da gerade kommt, aber haben ansonsten ihre täglichen Dinge weiter gemacht. Es war einheimisches Leben haut nah.
    Mein persönliches Highlight war jedoch das gemeinsame Abendessen mit den easyridern. Vor allem uncle 9 hat so viel Wissen über das Land, dessen Geschichte und auch über alle möglichen Pflanzen, dass man immer was zu erzählen hat. Und seine Kartentricks sind auch nicht ohne. ;)
    Wenn wir nochmal nach Vietnam kommen wollen wir auf jeden Fall noch eine Tour machen. Allerdings glaub ich dass mein Hintern mehr als drei Tage am Stück nicht auf dem Motorrad aushält. :P

    Me and five friends rode with Uncle 9 and 5 of his easy riders for 3 days. We had such an amazing time and saw the most beautiful scenery along the Ho Chi Minh road. Uncle 9 stopped at all the best spots for us to take photos and to take it all in! We had so much fun with all the easy riders, they're all super friendly, funny and welcoming. Thank you so much for our trip guys!

    I did a 2 day 1 night tour with uncle 9 from hoi an to hue. He is a great guide, very knowledgeable and caring. I saw gorgeous scenery I wouldn't have otherwise and learned a lot about the culture. I recommend uncle 9 to those looking to do an easy rider tour!

    Vi møtte "uncle 9" på togstasjonen I Danang, som veldig mange andre. Han tilbydde oss skyss til Hoi An for 5$ per person. Prisen er litt stiv, men vi takket heldigvis ja. Halvveis på turen til Hoi An stopper "uncle 9" og kompisen hans "mr. T" for å spandere kaffe på oss og fortelle om de guida turene de driver med. I begynnelsen virket det litt i overkant, men etter å ha fått skreddersydd en tre dager lang tur til Hue, sa vi oss fornøyd med tilbudet. Prisen på 210$ per pers var ganske dyr ettersom hverken mat eller drikke er inkludert. Men det er nok einaste negative vi kan sei om turen. "Uncle 9" er en helt fantastisk person som både er omtenksom og flink til det meste. Flink sjåfør og enormt med kunnskap om området og lokal kultur. Vi hadde også gleden av selskapet til en amerikaner som hadde en lignende tur som oss. Kombinasjonen av en konstant livlig og morsom tone og innsyn og meninger om vietnamesisk kultur gjør at ingen burde gå glipp av denne mannen. Køyringa gjennom fjella er idyllisk og avslappende. Vietnam sin natur er virkelig nydelig. Dei var veldig flinke sjåfører og spør deg heile tida om du har det bra. Anbefales på det sterkaste!

    We found Uncle 9 on tripadvisor and called him to talk about our plans. We decided to do a 3 days/2 nights tour starting in Hoi An trough the highlands to Hue. He and His Buddy My made everything perfect for us. We had a lot of local stops ( e.g. making rice paper, see ethnic minorities...) and a lot of fun! We would totally recommend a tour with these funny guides.

    As most of you we meet uncle 9 outside the trainstation.
    On our ride to our hotel in Hoi an, we stopped in to let him tell about his tours.
    Spontaineosly we booked a Tour 2 days/1 Night to the mountains.
    Which turned out to be our best tour travelling in southeast asia for 5 months.
    Our biggest regret now is we only had time for the 2days/1 night :)

    Nous avons rencontré oncle 9 à la gare qui nous a conduit a notre hotel... Jusque la rien de fou jusqu'à que l'on discute autours d'une bonne bière de ses excursions !
    Nous avons donc tenté l'aventure sur deux jours entre Danang et Hoi an c'était magnifique toutes les deux minutes on était la "waou c'est bôôô" bref une bonne expérience avec une bonne personne qu'est oncle 9! Toujours partant pour rigoler, attentionné, il nous a montré beaucoup du "vrai" Vietnam!
    Merci beaucoup Oncle 9!

    My friend and I met Uncle Nine and Mr. T at the Da Nang train station. We thought we were just getting a motorbike ride to Hoi An, but they quickly pursuaded us to join them on a two day, one night tour of the Vietnam countryside via motorbike. I'm so glad we went for it! We never would have found the gorgeous mountains, small towns, local markets and local craftspeople on our own. It also made such a difference having guides who could answer our questions along the way. They were unfailingly accomodating and kind and also hilarious : ) As two young women traveling alone, we felt completely safe the entire trip. Also, traveling on the back of a motorbike gives you a totally different perspective than in a bus or train. So much fun! Why not?!

    I knew Uncle Nine meant good business when I noticed his Honda at Da Nang station. I'm not easily persuaded when it comes to changing my travel plans but he talked me into his two day bike trip from Hoi An to Hue and it was one of the highlights of my time in Vietnam. His English is great, he's a knowledgeable guide and overall cool guy and he's able to add a personal touch to explaining Vietnamese history and culture. Thank you Uncle Nine!

    We just finished a two day bike trip out of Hoi An with Uncle Nine. What a fantastic experience! The scenery was spectacular and Uncle Nine is the "Wikipedia" of everything Vietnam. He has an incredible amount of energy and truly enjoys spending time with new people. And his card tricks aren't bad either! He has the "extra something" when it comes to being a tour guide - very flexible, thoughtful and always ready to share a joke. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great trip to see the real Vietnam.

    We, like so many others, first met Uncle 9 and Ti at the trainstation at Da Nang. They talked us in to "taxi ride" to Hoi An and a one and a half day trip up to the mountains and rural areas outside. Hoi An. The tours were GREAT! We saw a lot and learned a lot. Uncle 9 is a man with good knowledge about the country and the people of Vietnam. Both Ti and Uncle 9 made us feel safe during the ride, and they were really nice spending time with. This trip has so far been one of the best experience in Southeast Asia. Thank you, Uncle 9 and Ti!

    I got picked up by Uncle 9 at Da Nang trainstation. Without having any plans, he convinced me to do a two day tour through a Vietnam I otherwise would never have had the possibility to visit. After a while talking to him, he brouhgt me to Hoi An and 2 days later I was on this amazing biketrip which left so many impressions, that I can only recommend this tour, but especially him as guide! Uncle 9's English is very good and he knows so much about everything.
    Thank you!!

    I met Uncle Nine when I arrived to Danang by train and he took me to Hoi An. I had not planned a longer motorcycle trip but it sounded like a great way to see Vietnam. So I booked a two days trip with him and I am so happy I did. The journey was just amazing. We visited local people, saw great landscape and had great time. Uncle Nine is very safe driver and good company. He is also happy to share a lot of interesting information about the country, its nature and its people. If you want to see real and beautiful Vietnam, I truly recommend you take Uncle Nine as your guide.

    I was first planning a trip to visit a few places in Vietnam which was inititall A Luoi village P'Rao town and Danang, but Uncle nine suggested a much better plan for me to ensure I get to expereience more of Vietnam, Where in addition I can stop at Hoi An, Lang Co beach and go to Hai Van Pass which I am glad he had suggested it. Throughout my 2 and half days trip with Uncle Nine it has been a great experience travelling on the motorobike, riding through the highest of the montain tops, riding through the villages and being greeted by the friendly locals and school kids and overseeing the most spectacular views of Vietnam. My experience has been something I will always remember and on top of that Uncle Nine has been a very friendly and accomodating. I felt very safe during my journey with him.
