Very amazing experience, guide was friendly and knowledgable. Might have been the most comfy and luxuary bus I ever been on and in Vietnam usually you don't get the nicest ride on tours. We forgot some suveniers on bus and they delivered them to our hotel next day. I would say it is underpriced. 10/10
you need a friver to get there anyway. the guide was friendly but didnt tell us more than the signs said. if you can get there you could do this place alone and not really loose out.
guide was fun and knowledgeable. request Hung if he is available
