This is a must if you are visiting Vietnam! It was quite a long drive from Hanoi but well worth it. The views are amazing and the boat ride through the longest cave was impressive. Although we have been a little concerned about the corona virus, our guide said we were quite lucky it was so slow. Usually there is over an hour wait for the boats. We must have seen only a dozen or so on the water. Also, February is quite cool so pack a rain coat and warm jacket (think an average day in San Francisco 50s 60s F).

Great tour to see the wonderful landscape Vietnam offers combined with a professional guide who was always very supportive and funny too. Organization/communication was really good (they were even prepared when it started to rain). This tour started with a few minor "warm up" destinations (bike tour to see a few mountains) where you can a good lunch buffet. The following boat trip is one of its kind. The landscape reminds me of the wonderful Halong Bay, but on land. There are temples surrounded by mountains which looks astonishing and luckily there were not so many tourists around. After that we arrived at our final destination, a mountain that we climbed up. An incredible view from the top - a never forgetting moment.

The pick up from Hanoi Opera was badly sign posted and not very well organised so pick up was difficult. The tour guide was good and knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant stop for lick was good but I did not appreciate being told where to sit. We had 18 people on our bus in total. Air con on the bus on the way back was terrible the driver kept on turning it on and off all the time. The sights we good be aware high season so 100’s of people, if you don’t like crowds then perhaps choose the off season .
