Thào collected me from my hotel on her scooter and we went for salted coffee before setting out on our adventure. We went to some fabulous places and Thào was so knowledgable about the best, out of the way, places to go. We visited temples, shrines, local villages, an abandoned water park and more. We took some great photographs and although not a photographer herself, Thào knew some great spots to get the best out of what was quite an overcast day I really enjoyed myself, Thào was such good fun to. E with and I highly recommend this tour.

This was a real highlight of our time in Vietnam. We are vegetarians so our guides adapted the tour and took us to 5 fantastic local veggie restaurants, real hidden gems we would never have discovered ourselves. The guides (3 local students) were so friendly and fun. It was a brilliant evening learning about food and culture.

It is true that there are a lot of bus routes but it is very interesting and the tunnels are impressive, that's to do!

My driver was great, very friendly and personable. We joined another group since I was solo and met very nice people.

The tour was very good. The guide had sense of humor. The lunch was delicious.
