Vuong was a great tour guide. The tour bus was comfortable. The bikes we rented were good quality. Vuong catered the tour towards our interests, for example: we enjoy biking so vuong made the bike portion of the trip longer. All the food was great and were preset menus. Some of the places provided too much food and we get a bit bad about being wasteful. Vuong helped us know what was appropriate, for example how much to tip the rowers. Tam Coc region was beautiful. The limestone rocks will always be a fond memory for me.

if you want to see the landscape of the world and the countryside scenery, the rustic local life at the same time then this is the trip you need to do , everything is beyond expectations

Tour was well organized, tour guide was amazing and made our trip memorable (Viet Linh). Definitely recommending if you stay in Hanoi!!!

The landscape, the views, the nature is very beautiful and relaxing.

This was a fantastic tour with a fantastic guide. Highly recommend!
