5 stars doesn't seem like enough to express how wonderful an experience this trip was! Everything from the booking experience to collection and drop off was exceptional. The driver Mr Bao and our tour guide Loi were very professional and accommodating. Loi went out of his way to make sure we were happy and comfortable at all times and really went above and beyond to provide a really special experience for us. By the end of the trip he felt like family. The locations we visited were breathtakingly beautiful and full of fun activities and adventure. We have so many great memories that we will treasure forever. Thank you so much! We will be back :)

Our experience in Mr Linh company was excellent thanks to the kidneys of their staff. We had a medical incident and we were lucky enough to have ‘Son’ Mr Linhs homstay on hand who went out of his way to give us a ride to the hospital, staying with us and then giving us a ride back to our homestay on the other side of Ba Be Lake.
We would also like to thank ‘Nam’ for helping us out at the end of out journey with some lost property.
We really appreciate your help and fast action in resolving the matter.

We booked a boat trip in Ba Be lake, a dinner at their homestay and a shuttle bus back to Hanoi.

The good:
Very friendly.
Know good english.
Food was good.
Shuttle bus was clean and new.

The bad:
Everything is overpriced. You can find everything they offer for a third of the price!

They will tell you that there are no other restaurants or homestays besides theirs but its a LIE!!! The whole area is filled with homestays that serve the same food.

If you want a boat trip just ask anyone on the street and they will ask for a much lower price.

When we asked for information about hikes they told us that we need to have a guide otherwise it will be difficult to find the way. That is not true. There is only one road that circles the lake and the hiking trails are clearly marked with signs (you can also find them on a free app called maps.me).

They own the only tourist information center in the area so don’t believe anything they say.

When we booked the shuttle bus to Hanoi they said they will drop us at our hostel but when we asked the driver he refused.
We were told the bus would arrive at 12:00. It arrived at 13:30. Later we found out that the bus is scheduled to arrive at 12:30.

Two poor reviews have appeared, 4 days ago, by Gabriella and Lior_zocho.
These are both written in exactly the same style, by persons with new accounts and with no record of other reviews or history, and these people have certainly not been clients of Mr Linh's Adventures, as we keep records and get feedback from all our customers.
Readers will observe that anyone who has had the good fortune to have stayed with Mr Linh or taken part in any activities has been more than satisfied. We may be a little more expensive, but our service, professionalism and commitment to customer satisfaction are second to none.
TripAdvisor really ought to take note of this kind of review which is evidently not by a true traveller.

All the best,

Mr. Linh

Doing solo private tour to wonder of northern Vietnam with the double long (both guide and driver named long). The trip was a long drive each day but the scenery was spectacular. The drive was fast yet safe. All accommodation; the homestay and 3 star hotel was a pleasant stay with private well equipped room at the Mr Linh's Homestay @ Ba be Lake plus i had a good experience with the owner of homestay @ Nghia Lo, Ha giang and Coa Bang, their hospitality was very warm.

Both Long tries their best to make me comfortable as possible, food are catered to my favor as i opt only for vegetarian food and i so in love with their deep fried spring roll. The food spread was a lot for one person and i feel bad when i cant finish the food but driver long was there to help me clear the food :)..The guide was knowledgeable with decent English, some of his pronunciation was not clear so i will have him spell out for me and he also act as my photographer throughout the whole trip.

The hiking & trekking was easy but muddy.. Daily weather was not favorable, sometimes was heavy rain, drizzle and stormy..

Meeting the local villager was nice especially the hike to one of remote village in Dong van where we did photography with the local villagers..

For day 8 and final day, i didn't really enjoy as i was sick, down with fever after the "force hike at KEO SLIU-AN MA ISLAND" by guide as i get rain during the hike with no great view in the forest, I did ask him do i need to bring the raincoat but he said no need just bring WALLET and it was SHORT HIKE (according to him under 1hr hike) then suddenly a huge pour of rain plus thunderstorm occurred and we got stranded..

But overall it was a great experience for my very first time in Vietnam, thanks to both Long and the tour operator for this awesome adventure where they take your to places that others don't..

We had a three days and two nights trip with them and completely enjoyed the real Vietnam.
We ate in typical places where food was generous and good and we had the opportunity of sleeping in two different Homestay, where the Num and Tay people welcomed us with big smiles and a open heart!
Of course the Vitnamite environment left us breathless and satisfied our needs and beyond: Ba be National park offered a beautiful trip on the 3 lakes, a kayak moment and a funny jump from the rocks of Windows Island. The Waterfalls, at the border between Vietnam and China, where amazing but we also have to mention the outstanding mountains, the hundreds of green rice fields, the incense makers, the knives artisans and the green tea farmers....
In the end we strongly suggest Mr. Linh's Adventure for their professionality.
Loi took care of us as a part of our family.
