Me and my 16-year-old did a half-day climbing session at Water Mountain, with Viet and My as our guides. We didn't visit the caves and temples on this trip as we had been there with the rest of the family the day before. My son is a very good boulderer and I am not. Both Viet and My were excellent guides and coaches, and were clearly very well-trained,competent and experienced climb leaders. The climbing was great, although the rockface is sharp in places and sometimes very hot (they had plasters and first aid for my sensitive hands!). The lunch of banh mi (including a veggie option) and fruit was very really delicious. I can't rate these guys highly enough. I would really recommend Phat Tire Ventures for anyone who wants to do activities slightly off the beaten track. In addition to the trip itself, communication via e-mail and whatsapp with Van in the Hoi An office has been easy and informative.

I highly recommend this activity if you are staying in or near Hoi An! We were picked up by “Ting Ting” and My at our hotel in Hoi An Ancient Town, and taken to Marble Mountain (about 20 min ride). From there, they taught us the basics and made sure we were ready for the real deal! My husband has a fear of heights and although he was nervous at first, after the first rappel, he was totally fine and felt confident! It was a great way to spend a 1/2 day in Hoi An. The Bahn Mi and fresh fruit picnic was a nice touch too. *Side-note* We came in August during the rainy season. It was so hot in Vietnam and we thought we were going to be miserable, but it was actually pretty nice when you get into the park area. Lots of shade, plenty of breezes, and there are bathrooms around as well!

I joined a group of 5 others to do this ride , it was absolutely awesome our guide ting was great there was a 10 year old in the group who did the whole ride but just needed the pace kept down which ting did admirably. I didnt mind the slow pace there is just so much to see on this ride . I would highly recommend this day out if you want to see rural Vietnam

Awesome morning out with Tin and Meh! Super professional and felt safe the whole time! Great chat and good English speaking. Only two of us on the trip so we were able to do another 30 metre descent. Highly recommended and worth the money!
Thanks, Richard & Garth.

Yesterday we went on the Marble Mountain Rappelling tour. Phat Tire is a great outfit and highly recommended, very well run and with new, high quality equipment. Also, our guides Ting and Quong were fantastic, very safety conscious, professional and attentive - the best guides/outfit we've had so far in SE Asia. Ting spoke great English and we really enjoyed learning more about Vietnam life, politics, religion etc as well as the sites we visited.

However, the rappelling was not what we expected. It consisted of three short drops (the two longest ones being 30 meters) basically to the same end point, which was packed with tourists, who we had to climb around to get to the rappelling points etc. It was also baking hot. Marble Mountain is very developed (all paved with vendors etc) and a bit of a tourist zoo with tour guides shouting out etc. We were really hoping that this trip would get us away from the crowds and into some wilderness, but that was not the case. It felt like we were in a theme park the entire trip.

In hindsight, we also felt the tour was too expensive (at $61) for what it offered and the costs for Phat Tire.
