Excellent tour! We were in a group of 2 and both drivers were very attentive, spoke good English and drove well. Ride despite crazy and with many motorbikes, we felt very safe. Delicious food on the stops. The only thing is that we expected there to be more different foods. Of the 6 stops, two were just for walking. And I wish I had taken the opportunity to know some other food. But just a suggestion! Thank you and I will recommend this tour to all my friends who come!!

the tour guide (Long - Honda) was amazing, he was funny, considerate & knowledgeable. even the driver was very good person. van was neat & clean. would recommend to everyone. just confirm with Kim travels regarding the pickup point & timings.

This was an amazing experience and great way to see Vietnam from a local perspective. My guide Anna was so nice! I was nervous about scooter but after a few times I got used to it and she made me really comfortable.

So fun!!!! Lan Unicorn was an amazing guide! Super nice, funny and always smiling! Loved it ! I highly recommend it!!

good experience Daniel was my fmdriver I felt very safe with him
