The Mai Chau day trek is a great way to disconnect with urban life and spend a day in the lap of nature. Our trek guide picked us up on time from our hotel and our trek route crossed through some gorgeous terrain. Our guide introduced us to locals and knew a lot about the area. We ate home-cooked meals on our trek and the food was delicious. All in all, a great day well spent.

The Mai Chau trek was recommended to us by a few friends who had been earlier and we booked through the same company. This 1 day trip was one of the highlights of our Hanoi trip. They picked us up at 8 am as promised and within 3 hours we were in idyllic Mai Chau. After a short trek we had lunch, made my really sweet locals. Our guide was very friendly and helped us connect with the locals and get an insight into their culture. The homestay arranged was most comfortable and the food tasted so good & fresh!! This part of the trip was where we got to be with beautiful nature and spend the day at a relaxed pace. Perfect!

We booked an overnight trip to Mai Chau from Hanoi online via their website and got near-immediate e-mail confirmation from them confirming everything. Pickup was on time (10 minutes early, in fact!) and we set off on a 3 hour trip to Mai Chau, with a bathroom break and then a breathtaking photo stop before we went down into the valley and arrived at the Mai Chau Riverside Resort. The homestay was great - friendly staff and great food. We went on an afternoon bicycle tour, stopped in a village with several handicraft shops. After dinner was traditional dancing and trying the homemade rice wine. In the morning we toured the local market and then hiked up the Cave of 1000 steps - a workout but well worth it! Our tour guide was great too (forgot his name) - there were about 10 people in our group including us, Australian, German, British, and American (us). Incredible scenery, peaceful trip.

We did a full day tour of Mai Chau with them. The tour was a mix of nature and culture, and was excellent use of our time. We were picked up in the morning from our Hotel, and reached Mai Chau by mid-day. After a lovely traditional lunch moved on to a bicycle ride. we then got to mingle with the lovely Vietnamese locals for a while, before leaving back for Hanoi. In hindsight, we probably would've taken a 2 or 3 day tour, but given our shortage of time, this was an excellent option!
