A nice tour around the northern island. There, among other things, a bee farm was visited. Cute girl who guided around, very interesting. Also bought honey there. Other stops included kayaking, pepper farm and starfish beach. Exciting to see all the red starfish but the bathing water was nothing special, shallow. Our guide was very nice and had lots of fun during the drive, it heightened the mood.

Excellent tour with the fantastic local guide Danny. Thank You Danny for answering all my questions and giving us all little local stories as well as facts on all the places we visited. Often on these tours you are not given enough time to explore and enjoy the beach and the forest but Danny gave us enough time to swim, walk and explore by ourselves and made sure that we had enough time to walk past the touristy area on the beach to a more serene area. Also, lots of time to kayak....was exhausted when I returned to hotel but in a very good way! Well worth doing and one of the best tours that I have done in Vietnam. Thanks again Danny, so glad that you were our guide!

In the beginning of the tour commercially 'mandatory' stops, but afterwards had a nice day, very extensive lunch and a nice guide, comfortable bus, small group. Price / performance is highly recommended.
