Our experience was amazing! Loi our guide made the whole 10 day adventure fun informative and inspiring. Our driver Long made the long trips by bus seem short and helped us feel safe on the very crazy roads.
Loi brought us to many places we never could have gone on our own and showed us many amazing out of the way places and people.
As a professional guide myself back home I really appreciated the level of care and true love Loi displays for both showing this amazing place to his guests but also his genuine love for these place and people himself.
The food on the trip was amazing we both gained a few pounds as we couldn’t stop eating all the great things Loi and long turned us on to. And when we didn’t like something he was quick to bring something we did love. The homestays and hotels where all very clean and comfortable.
All in all an incredible trip. Thanks to Loi Long and Hellen back at the office. You guys are truly great at what you do.

Hi Brian,

Thank you so much for this great review! We appreciate your support very much and are so glad you enjoyed every bit of the trip. Loi is indeed very passionate, it is always a pleasure to work with him. As for Long, the roads definitely have no secrets for him now. Helen enjoyed working on your tour, she will be delighted to hear the good news.

Hope the few pounds gained were worth it!

Our 8 days off beat trekking from village of valleys and mountains is truly fascinating and accompanied by Loi, the humorous, caring and attentive guide accompanied by safe driving driver Swee. .they have such patience too
Our trek and homestays are basis but very comfortable and always well fed with good meals especially efforts for the deliciously hotpot dinner and birthday treat celebration by entertainer Loi
We will and plan to organise a coming year for the golden harvest on October for the golden harvest to North East Hanoi with Linh Adventure
Much interesting are interacting with the tribes and their custom and lifestyle which we learns much to treasure especially the classroom of happy children and teachers in local school
Yes, we recommend Mr Linh's Adventures and Guide Loi,who is expert on sweet potato dish

Hi Venture152719. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It is a pleasure to hear that your experience in Northern Vietnam and Mr Linh’s Adventures was a success. Loi is indeed a great cook! It is very important to us that the local communities in this remote area are being known as well, and share the benefits of sharing time and knowledge with passing travellers.

We look forward to seeing you again soon then!

Sincere regards,
Linh.

Did the tour from Hanoi to Ba Be Lake & Ban Gioc Waterfall and it was one of the most amazing nature tours I've ever gone on! The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and he always seemed to take the greatest care to make sure everyone was happy and didn't need anything. The homestay in Ba Be was also great, and it was really nice talking to Linh and the rest of the family for a bit.

Would recommend for anyone who's looking for a guided tour of some truly amazing sights accompanied by friendly people.

We went to ba be national park with mr linh and did the boattour. The bus was already expensive and took way longer than promised. The boattour was even more overpriced. 35 dollars for a 3 hour tour which is not that special.

Dear M9648.

I’m very sorry to hear that our tour was not up to your expectations. We do our best to break down the price of our services at the time of booking to showcase how most of our revenue ends up in the hands of the local people and communities that we work closely with.
We are the only company running a shuttle bus service between Hanoi and Ba Be National Park, and as it is still a remote and rarely-visited area. This relatively low demand means that transportation services cost a bit more than elsewhere in our country. If you research the prices for the local bus running the same route, you will discover that the price is the same as ours, but with more than double the travel time (up to 12 hours instead of around 4,5) and without the pick-up and drop-off services we offer.
We also offer this shuttle service completely free of charge to local people and students from Ba Be, allowing them to visit and study Hanoi, something they have been unable to do in the past. Thus, the price you pay for the ticket provides significant value to the local population in Ba Be, something we focus on, while still giving you a value you can’t get from the local bus. Had you informed me in advance about your thoughts on the pricing, I would’ve been more than happy to assist you with booking a local bus instead.
Regarding the tour, I am very sorry to hear you didn’t think it was worth it. We believe that 35 US Dollars is a very reasonable price for this tour as the maximum size of the group is 8 people, and even when there are fewer people the local boatman and English speaking guide still needs to be compensated for their labour.
Once again I’m very sorry to hear you were not happy with our services, and should you ever return to Vietnam I would love the chance to change your mind.

Sincere Regards,

Linh.

We absolutely recommend Mr Linh's Adventure. We had unforgettable impressions on our tour. Away from tourism, we were able to discover the real life of the various hill tribes and great landscapes. Cau, our guide and Bao, our driver, took great care of us and showed us a lot. We were excited.

Thank you Peter for taking the time to leave us such a generous review. Cau and Bao were both very excited to tell me about the wonderful time they had with you and we’re glad you got to see a more remote and authentic part of Vietnam, which is what we strive to present to our valued guests.
I hope we get to serve you again one day!

Sincere regards,

Linh.
