I really enjoyed this tour and in large part thanks to the good humor of our guide Hai. Very jovial, very enthusiastic and patient. He shared with us the culture of his country and was able to motivate us despite the effort required for this circuit. If you have physical problems, you will have to think twice about it because it will take a lot of effort but it will be worth it. The bike tour was very good even if I would have liked it to be longer, the bamboo boat tour very peaceful and the view after the 500 steps to Mua Cave breathtaking.

Fantastic little day trip, highlighting the more tropical side of Vietnam compared to the city streets of Hanoi. The schedule was changed a little due to issues at the bigger pagoda but this was balanced out with more time cycling, which I actually preferred as you can get templed out easily in Asia! The boat trip was draw dropping pretty - would definitely recommend. Plenty of vegetarian options in the buffet lunch so you won’t go hungry if you are one like me. Transport was a little cramped but was still a comfortable ride. Very organised and although some bits are a little fast paced, this needed to be the case to squeeze it all in and you still get enough time to reach the summit for “that” temple shot - also the guide has got you covered for your pics as they’ll give you your own little photo session at the best backdrop locations.

The truth is that it is a super complete excursion, starting with the only bad thing is that they took us to eat at a buffet where we arrived first and the food was very hard, it was the food from the day before. The guide was very friendly, the pagoda is impressive even though it is recently built, the boat ride is great and the mua cave is great. We didn't get to do the bike ride although it was contracted but seeing that you would really walk through the same places that we had already seen on the bus and after the tiring climb to mua cave we would not have done the bike ride. Very punctual in the collection and direct return to the hotel. The bus a little small in the back seats. The guide gave us a Vietnamese hat and between that, his kindness and his explanations, he earned a tip. 100% recommendable.
