    Tour was good. They conduct us to many different places. Gifts are super expensive at those places. You can buy them at the city with 1/100 the price at tour places. When we meet with local activities, the guide force us to pay a tip for local people. Then, guide pay local people by deducting the tip which we gave to local people. That's how guide himself make a side profit. So, better not to give tips to local people.

    I highly recommend this tour. It was such a wonderful day. The driver Hii was very sweet and Phong the guide looked after me extremely well. He continuously made sure everything was okay, took special photos for/of me and spoke great English. It was really nice to have a more personalised experience with a private tour, as I received ongoing attention/could hear all information well and I saw some hidden gems, which larger groups would miss out on.
