Fantastic trip, would recommend to everyone. Beautiful spots, brilliant friendly guides, great adventure. Mildly strenuous trek. Possibly best day I've had in Vietnam. If you are choosing just a 1 day adventure in Phong Ahn then this is the one to choose!

Unbelievable experience not to be missed. Needs to be seen to believe. High quality care, food and experience. Worth every penny and other companies can't actually stay in the cave (only oxalis have a licence) Thank you! Meet local villages, experience nature and all its beauty.

We went with Oxalis to Hang En Cave. Well organized trip in every way. The trip to Hang En was a beautiful walk combined with a spectacular cave. The bots you can borrow are like hiking with converse shoes, but they do the job, especially in the river crossings. We discovered a small hole in our tent and the staff... More

3d2n Wild Tu Lan Cave Explorer - guide was amazing (Quan or Bear as he likes to be called), he showed a genuine interest in the environment around him and was as excited as we were at all stages of the tour. The scenery is stunning, the caves on this tour were completely empty and untouched. They are SO impressive... More

Would definitely recommend Oxalis but would strongly advise caution against the 2 day Jungle Adventure Challenge... We opted for the jungle challenge over the cave tour thinking we'd get more variety with hill top views, waterfalls as well as caves What we didn't anticipate (partly our fault and partly the website failing to set this out clearly)..... 1. 25km of...

Dear Nick, Thanks for leaving us such a detailed and thoughtful review of Tu Lan Jungle Challenge. As being said, this tour is a real challenge for even experienced trekkers. It was harder in hot and humid weather just as much as other tours were. That's why we suggest all customers to check weather condition to have appropriate preparation. While... More

Oxalis has everything to be the best: unique trekking-climbing-caving tours, very good English speaking guides who are knowledgeable of the area, good food served during the tours in very difficult conditions, very high professionalism in the way they organize the tours. If you want to be the next Son Doong explorer, you have to go with Oxalis!

I was most impressed by the easy-going professionalism our guides exuded and simply blown away by the sublime natural beauty of the cave and jungle surrounds. Spending the night on a beach in the world's third-largest cave was something I'll never forget. It was hard work on the knees (trekking downhill) and ankles/calves (going up) and mostly sweaty but always... More

My wife and I joined the 1 day Tu Lan Tour and the 2 day one night Hang En Tour this April. Both were very unique experiences. Tu Lan offered us a chance to swim through a cave, while Hang En was an enormous and breathtaking cave (the third largest in the world). This is definitely a must-do for anyone... More
