Loved the experience! We went as a family - the trek was a little challenging for my mom, but our guide held my mom during the steeper sections, and my mom never felt that it was more than she could handle at any point. The waterfalls were awesome, and we loved the village and the trek as well. Our guide spoke wonderful English and showed us so much about the village, the people and the plants on our trek. It was also less touristy than other treks. Lunch was also great! We would recommend this tour to everyone

I have done the 3 days trekking, sleeping in family houses. my guide was Zo Zo: she lead me to beautiful trekkings, hosted me in her house with her family, cooking for me delicious food and always being available for any necessity. I suggest you to perform the trekking with her.

The trip was very well organised. We really enjoyed our trekking, the homestay, and the guide was great - very informative, helpful, nice and friendly personality. Thank you!

Very comfy seats and we had a very friendly driver. Great way to get to Ha long bay

Absolutely Amazing experience. Our tour guide was a local and she was Great.
