The ride was great, even the days when it rained. Hung did a great job of showing me the everyday lives of the Vietnamese people. We stopped at several local, family run businesses and many points of interest. We did much more than drive down the road from town to town.
The hotels were better than expected, even though one didn't have any hot water in the shower. The food and drinks were always good. Hung knew lots of local places and the prices were good.
The most disappointing aspect of the ride was the motorcycle itself. The Honda Future 120 cc I rode was an under-powered bike that struggled in the hills. It also had three flat tires on the 5 day trek. I could see the bike being a good fit for a beginning rider.
Also, make sure the payment method is settled BEFORE you get started. There was a big mix up with when and how to pay. All the website says is that payment is due when you leave, it doesn't say that they only take cash for that payment. So even though you can use a credit card for the deposit, you cannot use one for the balance owed. Be prepared to pay several million VND or hundreds of USD when you get there. That would have been nice to know before hand.

This trip took us through the countryside, where we experienced small shops run by families, little road-side grass roofed diners, and wonderful views. It felt authentic and wonderful. It was one of the best experienced I have had on vacation.
My bum got numb from riding, but that is not anything you can avoid when you are on a motorcycle for three days. It is part of the trip.

The trip covered a nice part of Vietnam. From mountain roads to the coastline.
The hotel accommodation could be better. Especially the last one. This hotel was rather noisy.

The tour from start to finish was amazing. Hung was a great, funny and knowledgeable tour guide. Unfortunately the battlefields part of the tour was closed by the government so we bypassed it and went to Dalat later in the week instead which was a beautiful last minute addition to the tour and much appreciated. Everyday was filled with enjoyable activities and I learned a lot about all the places we visited and the people. Thoroughly recommend the tour as very well organised.
Nothing to dislike, tour was great.

Very beautiful scenery and off-road riding. Informative guide with excellent English and great knowledge of the Vietnamese History spots
-- not much to say negative, some accomodation could be a 1 star nicer

My Host Nairn Phung was more like a mate. I will keep in touch. Funny, great navigator and extremely social. We took the piss out of a lot of things. We found some great local places to chill, local food interactions and off course hit a few cans ???
If I wasn't happy Nairn found a way to improve. More challenging roads, different spots. We even got a real life interaction with a police roadside patrol.
Some of the tour a bit Touristy, but we changed that.....Found some great sights and a local place to have a swim.
I think we tailored it a bit to what I wanted but that needs to be the real tour..... (no brick factories) haha

Nam and Than were really nice guide during our 2 days trip in Mekong Delta, we learned a lot about Vietnamese people and their culture. No tourists on the road and an amazing night in a homestay with perfect food.

My good mate and myself did a 12 day tour with Nam in 2011 from Nha Trang to Hanoi via the Central Highlands and the HCM Trail. Nam was great to deal with in setting up the destinations we wanted to take in and we left all the arrangements for bikes and accommodation with him. Once we arrived in HCMC I was in contact with Nam thanks to the info he had given me prior to our trip. We flew to Cam Ranh where Nam was waiting to pick us up and finalize our contract. With all that done we where on our big bikes and off on the greatest inspiring adventure ahead of us. Nam was amazing with all his knowledge and electronic gadgets to guide us through some unforgetable scenery, people, food and moments a journey like this can bring. We got more than just a guided tour, we got to meet the real people and see the history of some amazing places that many other westerners we had met on the journey did not get from their guided tours..
Nam has remained a good friend of mine since and I am very thankful to him for inspiring me to do more of these rides when in SE Asia. We caught up again on my last visit to Vietnam in 2013 where Nam gave me some great advice on places to visit while there.
I look forward to catching up with him again this coming April 2017.
In Nam we Trust.

4 friends and I did A 15 day HCMC to Hanoi trip with Nam in 2011, we had an absolute blast, saw some awesome sights and spectacular scenery, I enjoyed it that much I have been back to Vietnam 3 times since then, I Highly recommend Nam and his tour company for any adventure you wish to do in Vietnam , Cambodia or Laos.
This was my third trip with Nam and hopefully not my last. The accomodation is always good and spaced out nicely over the journey. Nam certainly knows his way around Vietnam and you get to see a lot of out of the way places. A great trip all round!
I was a solo female first time rider planning to ride to Hanoi, a friend from my hostel suggested I hire Nam my first couple days of riding ... IM SO HAPPY I DID! Nam is an amazing guide!!! I always felt very safe, I learned a lot about riding and about Vietnam from Nam. He took me to a few 'off the beaten path' spots along the way, which just added to the experience. We became good friends after only two days, my trip in Vietnam was 7 weeks total, Nam kept in contact and made sure I was safe my entire trip. Getting any length tour from Nam is worth every penny!!! I highly recommend Nam!!
