5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

This tour turned out to be one of the most awesome experiences of our two weeks stay in Vietnam, also due to our great tour guide Ms. Linda. From the beginning, she created a very comfortable and friendly atmosphere, and stayed in constant dialogue with the group to make sure that the half day trip is spent in a way that is the most enjoyable for every participant.
This led also to a stop at a local house at which Ms. Linda and the residents demonstrated rice paper and rubber production. As this visit was originally not mentioned in the tour, it was a very welcome addition to the booked package.
The time at the tunnels was well spent, with really good explanations by Ms. Linda, and enough time to discover the underground world of the tunnels.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Just the right amount of time to get out and experience a little of Vietnam history from a Vietnam perspective. Lynda was a fantastic guide and ensured the tour was a great experience for all. Coach was very comfortable. The visit to a local rice paper producer was very interesting also. The return to our hotel after the tour was very welcome as the heat of the day can be a little draining. Would highly recommend this half day experience.
