The trek and caving in a group of 8 with our tour guides Bao and Gecko was such a memorable experience. Climbing over boulders, trekking uphill and downhill through jungle, stepping and slipping through mud and swimming through underground rivers was more challenging than expected, but so much fun! We saw three awesome caves, and the challenging trek is more than worth it. Our porters and chefs were fantastic - we were so well fed and the food was absolutely delicious. Every part of the two days was amazing! Thanks Bao and Gecko!

We were a group of 9 people and we chose the 1-day Tu Lan experience that includes hiking through a 9km trail, with very slippery slopes, crossing rivers and exploring 2 amazing caves (one of which - the Rat Cave - was the set of the 2017 Kong: Skull Island movie), where the only light is the one on your helmet.
Our guide (Hero) was very helpful and knowledgeable about the Fauna and Flora, always providing interesting facts about our surroundings.
It was truly an amazing experience that I'd do again in a heartbeat!

We did one day Tu Lan cave trip. Our guide Pham was really good and professional guide. The caving in two different caves was fantastic and you will get to swim out of the latter one. The BBQ lunch is excellent! Can´t say anything else than do this trip (if you only have one day)!

Ok, I'm 2 months into my backpacking honeymoon with my new husband and we've peaked. We did the 3 day wild tu lan and it was incredible. Our guide tuong(?) was the sweetest, most genuine person either of us have come across. He has such a passion for the area and is so knowledgable, funny and kind. We could not imagine the trip without him. Whilst the mountains, caves and jungle we're all the most beautiful things I've seen, it was our lovely guide that really put the icing on the cake.

The porter team were really friendly and cooked amazing food for every meal and catered for the 3 veggies that were on the trip.

I don't have a bad word to say. The highlight of my month in Vietnam. Don't miss it.

My friend and I did the 3 day/2 night tour with Oxalis and it's one of the best things I've done in the 7 years I've lived in Viet Nam.

The guides were great, everything was organized well, and the area is truly stunning. If you aren't really into backpacking/camping it might be a bit much for you but I would strongly recommend it anyway.
