Fantastic day tour

Tom was a fantastic guide. You witness a lot in a single day. The tour was fantastic! We knew a little Vietnamese, which was helpful while partaking in activities and mingling with the locals, so we're expecting that the guides will be able to accompany us on the activities and explain things to people who don't know the language.

Amazing landscape in northen Vietnam

Wonderful landscape! Finishing the day by Mua Cave is a better idea than starting at this place cause we can catch up in the lovely late afternoon. Trang An is incredible, as well as the big Bai Dinh temple.
