To the reader i would like to say Phuong is the best. My self + my friend met him at the bus stop in Dalat after travelling from Ho Chi Minh city. We have had the best time in 8 days of 3 months travelling. I can't explain quickly enough just have good it have been. Please read all of this. We do 1 day around Dalat and after this we decided to do 5 days tour. I think this is the best way to see Vietnam. Forget buses. We have had so much fun, i want to keep going This is my last day with Phuong and his friend Hiep. I am beginning to want to travel to Hanoi with them but it would take another 13 days, days i just don't have or didn't plan for.
I have taken close to 1500 photos, eaten the best food i have ever eaten, laughed more in 8 days than i did in 3 months and my friend feel the exact same.
Phuong is so much fun, smart, helpful and makes this journey feel so safe specially if you are scared of motorbikes.
I can't recommend this enough. Just do it.
I have love my trip hre and i want to see Phuong again to travel from Hoi An to Hanoi to complete my journey by bike not by train which i have to do.
If you have read all of this, thank you. I could't keep going about how good Phuong and Hiep are, but trust me they are brilliant.
Thank you Phuong and Hiep, you have made my holidy and i wish i could have stayed with you longer, always show people your magic tricks and thank you, thank you!

Dalat - Saigon via Central Highlands & Ho Chi Minh trail - 4 days on a bike!
Took a while to decide to take an Easy Rider for this trip as we were getting low on money but i am so glad we did. Phuong & Long were brilliant. The places they have shown us and all the inside information they have given us has been amazing. They have made it a trip i could not recomend enough. We ate with them every night and thay filled us with their culture and friendlyness. Anyone who thinks that it is too expensive should take the bus home and miss the "Real Vietnam"! Thanks you Phuong and Long for your time, kindness and sometimes hairy riding. I would have you at my house anytime. All the best for the future.

Awesome motorbike tours
I guess if you are reading this you are thinking about doing a trip with Phuong. My advice would be go for it, you won't regret it! I met Phuong originally to do a 1 day tour around Dalat and had such a great time i change my mind about going back to the coast and booked a trip to Hoian instead! I can honestly say i have had the best time and only wish i could afford to do a longer trip! Travelling by motorbike is so much more fun than tralling by bus, Phuong takes you off the beaten track - through little villages where the kids all wave + shout "Hello", amazing moutain scenary. Phuong has so much knowledge about the people + the way of life, as well as the military history in the area. He makes it all interesting and has a wicked sense of humour! But prepare to feel like an alien in towns that don't see many western ties children point, teenagers want to pratice their English, adults do a double take and nearly fall off the bikes! And best of all, you will meet so many Vietnamese people and learn how friendly + hospitable they really are. The hotels we stayed in were all clean and comfortable and the food is fantastic! (Even though i wasn't brave enough to try duck embryo!)
Also, if you are like me, travelling alone, a little nervous about leaving the well trodden tourist track and feeling lonely, don't be! I hope this helps you make up your mind and i hope you enjoy it as much as i have!
