1. From Dalat: Private Countryside and Waterfalls Tour

Enjoy a day trip to Vietnam’s magnificent countryside near Dalat with a guide and driver. Choose from a motorcycle or car vehicle for your day out.  Enjoy the views as you leave the outer limits of Dalat, with beautiful scenery comprising pine forests, flora, and vegetable farms to accompany you to the first stop.  First up is Elephant Waterfall, one of the biggest and most stunning in the province. Even take a peek inside one of the hidden caves and stand behind the waterfall. Then move onto the buddhist temple located next to the waterfall with memorable giant Lady Buddha and Happy Buddha statues. Next up is a visit to a local village that specializes in craft activities such as making rice wine and preparing coffee. See the activities in situ, with demonstrations of what the coffee bean is like, the process of preparing Vietnamese coffee, and enjoying your own cup of it right there in the coffee plantation.  A few last nature stops before you head back to Dalat — Pongour Waterfall, one of the most beautiful in Vietnam, and Paradise Lake.  And just when you thought you couldn’t fit more in, head to “Chicken Village” — a local village with the largest chicken sculpture in Vietnam standing at 4.5 meters.   Sit back and relax with a transfer back to your accommodation in Dalat in the late afternoon after your fun-packed day.

Moly was a terrific motorcycle tour guide! He drove safely and as a passenger I felt comfortable with him. He had a lot of information up his sleeve and was a walking encyclopedia. I had a terrific time on the tour which I would recommend to anyone. And by motorbike with a local you are even closer to the country. Any time!!!

A fun day seeing so many sights it was mind blowing! An and Vu were so attentive to our needs and gave us useful information throughout the day. I would absolutely recommend this trip for both a positive cultural and pleasurable experience.

Our guide Hiep (aka Leo) was fun and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed spending time with him and were wowed by all we saw. We would give him more than 5 stars if we could.

The trip was a lot of fun and very interesting. Many thanks to Eagle and Leo, they were great tour guides!

Must see with this guide! Absolutely worth your time.
