Excellent tour with the fantastic local guide Danny. Thank You Danny for answering all my questions and giving us all little local stories as well as facts on all the places we visited. Often on these tours you are not given enough time to explore and enjoy the beach and the forest but Danny gave us enough time to swim, walk and explore by ourselves and made sure that we had enough time to walk past the touristy area on the beach to a more serene area. Also, lots of time to kayak....was exhausted when I returned to hotel but in a very good way! Well worth doing and one of the best tours that I have done in Vietnam. Thanks again Danny, so glad that you were our guide!

I thought it was a little expensive compared to other tours. But my impressions are different now. You should definitely do it. I recommend it. The points, cable cars, meals, tour guides, etc. were all wonderful. If you come next year, I would like to ask again ☀️

We couldn't have chosen a more suitable company. Everything was wonderful and perfect. Super super nice and kind guides. And we have seen so many beautiful and interesting things. We go home with lots of good memories. Thank you so much guys.

Well organised trip but be prepared to do a lot in a day. Great value for money.
