Definitely worth it!
Mar 2020 • Friends
My friend and I decided to book this tour as they offered it at the hostel we were staying at (gecko hostel). Possibly the best day we have had in Vietnam so far, the tour was incredible and Van our tour leader was so helpful and funny making it easy to talk to her as well as everyone else In the group. Visiting paradise cave as well as the dark cave which included a long zip line into the cave with swimming, a mud bath, and then an adventure course in the river as optional, but no extra charge. Overall the tour was amazing, I would definitely recommend it. And a massive shout out to Van for being the best tour guide!

Great Tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
The tour was very nice and interesting, with a mixture of many activities.

Our guide "Chocolate" and all of her coworkers we met on the way were very fun, helpful and informative, sharing entertaining stories and trivia.

The company was nice enough to offer pick-up and drop-off in Dong Hoi, and even helped us a few hours later on the train station after we had some ticket issues.

Amazing day!
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had Cloud as our tour guide and she was amazing. We went to the Botanical Gardens, the Paradise Cave and the Dark Cave. Fab free lunch and the zip lining, kayaking and caving were so fun. Cloud went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed the day - she took pictures throughout so we didn’t need to worry about bringing our phones and sent them all to us.

Great day with Viat!
Our guide Viat was so lovely and fun - he made the trip really easy to follow, gave us loads of information about the caves and the history of Vietnam and made us all feel like a team. The pickup was on time, the day ran to schedule and nothing felt rushed. We spent the perfect amount of time at each place so not to get bored, or feel like we’ve missed out on anything. It was a truly adventurous and tiring day - so much fun, we wish we could do it all over again!!

Super Tour, thanks Viet !
7 friends from Melbourne Australia couldn’t have felt more at home with the lovely service and exceptional work of Phong Nha Discovery.
VIET is a hero, with a great attitude, a wealth of knowledge and looks to kill 😎. Had a ball of a time, great food with vegetarian options available.
Would definitely recommend, big value for money, big fun.

Amazing tour and great fun
Feb 2020 • Couples
Went here at the end of February to do the Dark Cave and Paradise Cave along with all the activities. Our tour guide Cloud was so lovely and took care of everything, the whole day ran smoothly and was so much fun - a bit expensive but with entry to the caves, the activities, lunch and a rum and coke at the end it is well worth doing!

Phong Nha Caves
Had an absolutely lovely day with our tour guide ‘Chocolate’. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone. We saw the gorgeous Paradise Cave and had a lot of fun at the Dark Cave. If you’re looking to see two of the main highlights of Phong Nha in just a day, this is the perfect tour. ‘Chocolate’ spoke perfect English and was able to give lots of information about the caves we visited!

A lot of fun
We were picked up on time and were given water any time we asked. The first cave we visited was the Paradise cave, the guide named Viet gave us a lot of information about the caves and spoke good English. The cave was very big but they gave us enough time to discover it. Then we went to the dark cave where we had a good lucnh. The dark cave includes a zipline and Kayaking but I was a bit disappointed that we don't went that far into the cave. But we still had a good time and a lot of Fun!

What is the rush?
Nov 2019 • Friends
For 60.00 usd I was given a bus ride, water, lunch and admission to the parks. I was picked up late and dropped off early. I could have went to the caves by my self payed the park and had more time, saved a lot of money and had the same experience. Do it your self no tour needed. When you are in the cave it is just you walking around dark cave comes with a guide included it's not the bus company.

Hello Toby, Thank you for taking time to leave your review about us on Tripadvisor. We are sorry for our tour which did not meet your expectation. We checked your review on Tripadvisor seriously. As you know, most of travellers may stay from one day to 3 days to visit Phongnha. They may come here by early morning train in city (1 hour from Phongnha) or leave by night bus from Phongnha. Therefore, group tour will be started in Phongnha at 9:00am and finished around 4:30 pm latest to be sured that they will not be late for their bus or train. But we did not understand that why you said you got late pick-up while you were picked up at 8:50 am. With 60 US, you got free pick-up and drop-off, tranfer cost, English speaking tour guide, lunch, water, all entrance fees. You may do the tour by yourself and make comparison about its quality and price. Our staff tried their best to bring customers the best service and improve our service day after day. We contacted with you through email. Again, we are sorry for this inconvenience. We hope you will enjoy every moment in Vietnam and always welcome you back again in the future. Best regards,
