Great trip

Everything was great.
As I wrote you over wapp only negative experience was the drive between Ha Long and Ninh Binh.
The driver was always on the phone driving recklessly. A mother of 2 children on board complained with him asking him to focus on driving but he kept using his phone.
Even posting on FB while driving.
