The snorkeling tour was a lot of fun. The first island was nice for snorkeling with access to a bat cave, at the second spot we swam through a cave to a nice location (the guides light the way here). The next spot was again for snorkeling. There were a few jellyfish here, but the guides tried very hard not to let them get too close to us. Lunch was on the beach and super tasty. In between there was enough water and even some fruit. The 45 minute pickup window is a bit long (we ended up waiting almost an hour to be picked up). Overall, the guides were very friendly and took great care of the safety of the participants. We would book the tour again!

Amazing places! Bai Dihn is amazing and you will walk a lot! Be prepared!Trang An is beautiful and relaxing! And the last one, Mua Cave requires a lot of you to climb to the top, but ib the end the view is amazing! The tour was on time, the car was ok, the guide always with us and attentive! You will visit a lot of places in 1 day and walk a lot! The food at the lunch is good, but could be better or at least explained what it is or how to eat.

I came on a trip alone. Everything was low and awkward, but I could enjoy the trip thanks to the kind guide. I wanted to enjoy more snorkeling, but I couldn't because of the jellyfish. I was scared because it rained heavily on the way back

Very good tour, we were lucky with the view under water and could see a lot of corals and fish. The crew was also very helpful.

Our guide Sophia was the best, it was a great outing
