The tour was excellent! The marble Mountain is wonderful. Just be careful with the steps as they are a bit slippery. The hike to the top of the cave mountain is challenging but doable. Hai Van pass drive is magnificent gave u the best views! Lang co Beach and its lagoon are just beauty beyond words. Our lady guide is very knowledgeable, smart and friendly. She has potential to go far.

The caves in the Marble Mountains are really worth seeing, as is the drive up to the pass. The food and the stop at Lang-Co Beach are OK and simply necessary to have a point beyond the pass.

There was a quick response to my requests. The local agency was flexible and reachable. Very helpful. The driver was kind and adapt the timings according to our needs.

Was a great tour with simultaneous transfer. Especially our guide (Mr.D) was super friendly & spoke good English so that we could learn a lot along the way.

A lovely way to transfer - you did it at your own pace and got to spend your own amount of time at the stops (within reason)
