      Wonderful Hanoi Tour with Mr. Lee
      I joined one day day trip to Halong Bay and one day Ninh Binh trip with Mr. Lee. I must say Mr.Lee is very approachable, informative and helpful. He knows his domain well. He explained us many details of the the places we visited that made the experience memorable. He also knows a lot about Hanoi. He helped us understanding many visitors places, hotels , shopping places and he explained us significance of many of these places. Mr. Lee is very cordial and takes care of everyone from the group. We learnt some Vietnamese language words with him. I would definitely recommend tour with him. I look forward for my next visit to Hanoi !!

      Must see experience in Vietnam.
      Magical experience and the cloudy, damp weather made the setting all the more mystical. Mr. Lee is a very capable and knowledgable guide. Had a few laughs also. Would definitely recommend. thank you, David

      My first adventure in Vietnam: Discovering Ninh Binh
      The trip was both engaging and entertaining. Our tour guide, Lee, made sure to tell us more about the places on our itinerary. We gain information about the vietnamese culture, language, history and the creation of the country. The trip started of with a hike to the Mua caves, the view from the top of the 500 stairs was simply breathtaking. Our second stop was at the temple of the country's first two kings where the ancient capital of Hoa Lu was located. The surroundings tell us about how the history of the royals at that time and also why the capital was later moved to Hanoi. Our guide offered a detailed description of the story and also of different symbols and traditions. My favourites were the vietnamese unicorn and the royal family's special red tree chopsticks that were able to detect poisons. After a filling lunch at a buffet restaurant where we could try out the local speciality: goat meat, but also vegetarian options for the individuals with a special diet we went on a boat trip. We spent 1h45min on an amazing boat trip in pairs, where our 66yo lady sailor brought us on a relaxing journey among lotus buds, local house and further away into the arms of the nature and underneath caves between the mountains. Overall, I would wholeheartedly recommend this experience as it offers a great introduction to Vietnam and its beauty. It is not physically straining as participants can choose the routes they want to discover in accordance to their preferences, if hiking is sounds to exhausting walking around in the caves was also possible therefore offering options for all ages and prederences. I hope that I will see our guide again in other trips in the future.

      Nin Binh Tour
      It’s a great experience we had in Nin Ninh district with the tour guide Mr.Lee, he explained us the area and the history behind it. His English was excellent and understandable. I strongly recommend to take this tour if you want to have fun+ enjoy the sightseens. Don’t worry about the transportation it’s air-conditioned, comfortable, and they can pick you up at you staying.

    I enjoy the sailing with this cruise. The guide shensen ( i don't know how to spell 😂) is very polite and humble. He had waited me to the cruise when I am late because my leg was pain.

    Over all is nice. They serve many delicious foods and fresh. Very good.

    But I hope the cruise have to inform the tourist that drink in the cruise is exclude from the package. Because I feel it like a scam. They were place the drink when the food had served in the table. At the last sailing the crew ask the payment of the drinks. Dissapointing for this.

    We’ve been in Vietnam for about 8 days now and have gone on numerous tours with different tour companies throughout our trip. My family and I all agree that Tony was our favorite guide. His English is very good and he is so knowledgeable about the area and is really funny too. You can tell that he cares about his group a lot, always putting us first.

    Doing this tour in December, we didn’t get sunny blue skies, but the weather was still awesome, not too hot, not too cold and perfect for the small little hikes we did. Highly recommend.

    My friend and I booked this tour during our short stay in Hanoi. Overall the tour exceeded my expectations! Our tour guide, Toan, was super funny, knowledgeable, and he was very invested in making sure that our group had a good experience. We appreciated his candidness and overall enjoyed the kayaking and boating experience. If you have a day to kill I'd highly recommend this tour.

    We were picked up from our hotel in Old Quarter in a bus and everything was well taken care of. We visited the Pearl farm on the way where you have the option to buy pearl jewellery. Everything was smooth without any waiting in line. Our guide TONY was very friendly and helpful. He made sure we were getting to back to the boat everytime we went out for any activities. Activities included kayaking, cave exploring and hiking up the titop island. We had lunch in the boat which was a delicious variety of vietmese dishes and after all the activities we also had fresh fruits and tea. There is also option to buy drinks and snacks on the boat. This day trip is perfect if you have only one day to explore halong Bay and return to Hanoi City.

    We went on the tour without any expectations and the experience was amazing! Pick up from our hotel was smooth, the 2h+ ride to the harbor did not feel as long because of our entertaining and funny tour guide, Toan, that made all of us feel welcomed. We went on the cruise and was served with a delicious lunch with a great view. It was really fun to kayak around as well. Overall, everything went smoothly. Thanks Toan for making our trip memorable and enjoyable!

    Had a great time on the trip led by Tony who was energetic and very friendly. He gave a lot of interesting information about the sites that we visited and was incredibly helpful throughout the whole journey. The trip took the entire day but we spent just the right amount of time with each activity. Not too much waiting around but I also didn’t feel rushed while enjoying the view.

    Our tour with Max to Halong Bay was fantastic. He's got great sense of humour and knowledge of everything about tourism and places of Vietnam.
    He even taught us a bit if Vietnamese language.

    The tour was very nice and boring at all.
    They stopped the bus for about 10 minutes and it was good to stretch our legs. Bus ride about 2 hours and 40 minutes.

    Amazing caves, boat ride and even the seafood lunch was quite nice. Drinks are not expensive.

    Highly recommended for everyone.

    Although I was aware that drinks are not included, I think water should at least be. The amount of money we payed, we should have unlimited damn water. But other than that, I did enjoy the experience. The views of the islands of stuff were nice. I also enjoyed the kayaking. The vegetarian/vegan option lacked though. They can do something more creative. A pho, texturized vegetable protein, something with more flavor than just rice, peanuts, noodles and onions, and 4 spring rolls haha.

    But again, I reccommend.
