    If you look at the negative reviews, they seem to be from people who either weren't interested in seeing the caves in the first place or just seem like people who cannot be pleased. The fact of the matter is that there's really no way to see these caves properly without taking a tour with a guiding company. If you do that, you'll see the remarkable cave system through trekking, climbing, rope-work (basic), and even swimming. We did a 3d/2n trip and considered it to be the most incredible experience of our three-years in Vietnam.

    It's one of the most beautiful landscape in the world. The cave contains some of the tallest known stalagmites in the world, which are up to 70 m tall. Behind the Great Wall of Vietnam were found cave pearls the size of baseballs, an abnormally large size .The cave's interior is so large that it could fit an entire New York block inside, including skyscrapers, or could have a Boeing 747 fly through it without its wings touching either side.

    1st of all the, simply to allow you to guys realize that this's not really a site seeing, it is a spot.
    I biked right here together with the boys on MT bikes through the pinnacle, and also it is truly... oh male cannot explain it. View that is beautiful down towards the Donghoi city from much away, sometime you are going to feel it as if you get lost in a region with the audio of h20 from springtime, wild monkeys choking, birds finding partners, and Eagle flies above you to receive some chics.
    Nevertheless, there is simply no Gas station, local home ,.... once you begin from Paradise cave/Phong Nha via street twenty. Next Should you arrive there by motorbike, make certain you have by now prepared extra tube in case your scooter's flat, sufficient Gas for a whole 60km 2 ways trip such as hills, and naturally water along with a snack.

    I came here alone so nothing much for me except taking photos. Nice places for photos. But price is high. If you take a tour,have to pay more for renting jacket if you wanna swim. Better for group. Come early to have this place for your own.

    My partner Izzy and I just finished a modified 4 day trip with Quynh and Nhàn, and it has been nothing short of amazing... sightseeing, eating, drinking and just having an epic time cruising along the Ho Chi Minh trail.

    Honestly we could not have done this trip without Quynh and his local knowledge of central Vietnam. The Covid-19 virus has unfortunately been spreading this week and local businesses have been closing their doors to be safe. Some quick adjustments to some of our accommodation and original plans and we were back on the road!

    We cannot thank Quynh and Nhàn enough for showing us the incredible beauty of Vietnam- BOOK YOUR TRIP NOW!!!

    We did a 1 day trek with San as our guide. The whole day was fantastic starting with a trip to a wildlife sanctuary that aims to release animals back into the wild that have been pets or injured by hunters. Its good to know that some of what you pay is going to support local causes. The hike was great in the national park and we got a chance to swim in 2 pools under waterfalls where we were the only ones there. The lunch, cooked on coals was fantastic. the last part of the hike is a bit more challenging up the side of the waterfall but its worth it for the views. You also get to see the impact that the war had with craters still visible in the undergrowth. Well worth the effort.

    Just back from finishing the Tiger Cave tour. It was an unbelievable experience. I cannot recommend this tour enough to people with a great love for adventure. Our guide Tai was fantastic. Not alone was he great fun but also took some great photos. The porters were so kind and Tam was a fantastic help with some of the more difficult parts of the trek. A must do in Phong Nha!

    We were a group of few people that didn't know each other, we went for this tour that Maxime offered to show us, and I am so happy we did it.
    The day started around 8.30 am we went to a little hike, and we got to these amazing waterfalls we had a swim and took pictures of the area, then we went to another waterfall, where you could jump and enjoy the nature. Around 12am we had an amazing lunch with tipical spring rolls, everyone enjoyed this meal, it was really good!
    Then we went to have a tour in a new undiscovered cave, we could see stalactites and bats this was amazing! I think that was one the best moments I had in Vietnam
    Merci Maxime!!

    We read reviews here and rented motorbikes at Thang's and all was good. It comes with an option for him to get to you if the bike breaks down (but the bikes were good and nothing broke), and also we got enough fuel to make the full circle around the national park without having to look for gas. Can't remember waht time in the morning the place opens, but it was early enough to get ahead of the tourist buses to the caves, maybe 8 or something like that, we just hang around a bit and saw the guy opening his shop soon enough. He speaks English and shows you how to operatete the motorbike. Heartily recommend.

    A great one day trek adventure! Me and my partner went quite early in the season so had the whole trip to ourselves - the guides were great. We enjoyed hiking in the jungle, swimming and climbing in Phong Nha-Ke Bang jungle.

    The cycling trip was a highlight of our trip in Phong Nha. Lee was our guide and took us on a beautiful ride through the country side with an informative tour about local agriculture, the war, and local culture. Lee was friendly, personable, and professional. We biked about 30km in 6-7 hrs stoping at many local villages. It was such a great and unique experience.

    When we came to phong nha we wanted to do a more adventurous cave tour than the standard tour of the caves with all the big tourist groups. This tour was exactly that. We went far beyond the point in the cave where all the tourist boats stop and we kayaked and trekked through the dark with helmets and headlights. We even went swimming in the underground river at the end of the cave and the tour guides Hieu and Phu organised a great lunch inside the cave. They were also both extremely pleasant and cheerful so they made the tour even better. Highly recommend if you are looking for a 1 day adventorous cave tour.
