Sehr schöne und kurzweilige Tour. Unser Guide hat uns alles sehr geduldig erklärt und durch das große Areal geführt. Aufgrund des Taifuns wurde die Tour kurzfristig um einen Tag nach vorne verlegt, wir wurden direkt kontaktiert ob das passt. super flexibler Service! Sehr beeindruckende Tour, die mit 4-5h auch nicht zu lange dauert. Keine Kaffeefahrt o.ä. und wirklich eine Reise wert!

We had the pleasure of getting Mr. Tom or (mot) as our guide for Ba Na Hills. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about sites and history of Vietnam but he also did so in a very engaging way. 11/10 would recommend him as a guide!

Tai was a wonderful guide! he was funny and so knowledgeable. We loved learning the history of the caves and all about the surrounding area. we loved seeing the monkeys at Monkey Mountain!

Very comfortable and enjoyable and both the guide and the driver made it all easy even with a small kid that won’t keep quiet and a 3-month old!

Brian our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and made the tour very fun!
