Great guide, scenery - very disappointing food experience

Hoa (Bruce Lee), our guide was exceptionally good and discreet. He's very knowledgeable, prompt, on time and does the activities with you. E.g. he doesn't wait at the foot of the hill to wait for you to come down. He was also very accommodating to our requests. We were lucky enough to be the only couple on this tour. The disappointment was the uncomfortable transportation (lacking leg space, plastic cover), the so called "home cooked meals", tasteless, adapted to tourists palate without drinks, a payable add-on. I have been in and out of Vietnam for the past 8 years and dare say I can differentiate good from less good Vietnamese food. The last lunch meal was among the worst I ever had during my stays. The trip itself is definitely worth it, but not at the cost this tour is offered. the USD 30.00 bungalow is nice, Bruce Lee is exceptionally good, but the transportation and the meal organization (venues) and it's quality is far below what I would expect at this price level.

Beautiful day out! Definitely recommend.

Picked up from hostel on time with no problems. The van/bus actually looked like the pictures for once which was great! Very very spacious-loads of leg room and very comfortable. Our guide was so great. Really funny friendly and very informative. Although we were supplied with water bottles it wasn’t enough, definitely recommend bringing one or two big bottles with you or just buy on the way round. Visited some temples in the morning before a little bike ride which was fun. Lunch was a bit disappointing (although we only ate vegetarian foods so can’t speak for the meat/fish). Tam coc boat ride was stunning. So beautiful-bring suncream though! You get given traditional conical vietnames hats which you can take home with you which is great! The people who take you on the boat stop you off before you come back and try and make you buy food / drinks for them and are quite pushy.. 500 steps up Mua Cave is very tough..but worth it for the unbelievable views. Definitely recommend.

Terrific guide services, adequate food experience.

My wife & I were celebrating her birthday with a quick 1-day road trip. The scenery was gorgeous. Our guide Lan (who referred to himself by Unicorn) was charismatic & extremely helpful, & knowledgeable. Terrific 2-hour boat river-ride despite the scorching heat. Wonderful, quick biking tour the river with stunning views. Everything was perfect except for the food. I'm a foodie, so I value good food & I'm always looking for gasto-delightful experiences. The buffet was subpar, to say the least. Restaurant staff were picking up fruit, with their bare hands, and replacing it in the serving dishes if it happened to fall off onto the buffet tables. Flies were everywhere; the fried peanuts & several pasta dishes lacked flavor & tasted like vegetable oil. The restaurant has, by design, no windows to provide the patrons with an open-air feel. That's lovely during the cooler seasons, but not in the summer. No air conditioning and people were clustering around the ceiling.

Delightful Day, activity packed and easy

Our tour guide was the loveliest chick with excellent English and a savvy sense of humour. The bus ride was comfortable and the small group of people that accompanied us all nice and friendly. The day is action packed and really informative. The only unsavoury part, which isn't the guide's fault was the boat ladies manner and demeanour in trying to get $ out of us for snacks and tipping. We travel a lot so we are used to this, but it seemed rude and under-handed which leaves an unpleasant taint on that part of the day.

Really good expérience for a one day trip !!

The guide pick you up at your hotel so it's really comfortable. The day before, Maya from GoAsia Travel sens you some message to prépare the departure and see if everything is working well. Then the activités during the day are really Nice with the visit of 2 temples in the morning. Then, the part we prefer was the 'cruise' on the river !! It was really beautiful ! And then we also enjoyed biking to go to see a Pagoda ! So we enjoyed a lot this day and have a lot of fun !
