He tour was amazing such great scenario one of the best tours I’ve been on so far in my South East Asian adventure. The tour guide was great very informative and spoke perfect english very recommended! So glad I was able to have a great guide


Amazing trip out of Hanoi which takes 2hr and gives your breathtaking views from mua cave. Challenging 500 steps... Soaking wet but worth it! After 2 more caves with explanation of its history from Chris (our guide) who was always with us to make sure we don't do something stupid :)))) Small group of 10 ensures we don't feel too crowded. A good advise.... Don't be lazy and skip the cycling tour.... Its amazing! And easy for everyone.


We really enjoy with the trip, with a beautiful views after climbing some steps, just 500, little trip by bike and relaxing boat trip to finish. Diep, our guide, was so nice and worry of we spend an amazing time. I would repeat for another daily tour
