Anthony met us at our hotel and gave us an introduction for our schedule for the day, but he did not join us for the day. On the bus we met our guide Tung/Jack who was very friendly and knowledgeable on the history of Vietnam and the experiences of the day. He made sure to interact independently with all of the guests (others had joined the same tour) at some point during the day. The schedule was well planned and we stuck to it perfectly. Our only issue was the additional fee for the bus transportation; it would be more convenient if the bus fee was included in the experience price.

fantastic trip. very passionate guide. Bus from hotel to location has to be paid separately. Everything else on the itinerary is included within the pricing. I only wish they serve the rice before they serve the dishes. and I wish that the dishes they serve are more to local flavour.

It was incredible to see a site of such natural beauty and to feel even more immersed by getting to explore by kayak & swimming close by the islands. Would highly recommend this experience, truly stunning!
