This tour description does not correspond to the facts. Our tour has been reorganized. 1. Day Tour 3. After 45 minutes we were up. After 1.5 hours back a Micky Mous hike up stairs and paths through a terrible park. No trekking. Tour 2. That was ok. 11 km mostly on paths. At the start, 4 Hmong women joined our group. We were not informed why. But it was fun with them. This could also be called a trekking tour. In the end, the companions had to sell souvenirs. You could hardly say no after 4 hours of escort. Day 3 Tour 1 to the village of Cat Cat almost everything on a busy road. What was waiting for us was folklore at the lowest level. Simply horrible. The best thing was that the guide, who lived in the village, showed us her house. The tour was about 7 km long with no pick up. Positive: bus transfer there and back in the minibus was pleasant. All food was of good quality and the guide ok. Please change tour description
Everything was amazing except that when the driver picked us up at the hotel in Hanoi, he spoke no English at all and we had no idea the tour guide would not be on the bus. We did not know what was going on which is a little unsettling. Thank god there was a girl on the bus that spoke Vietnamese and English and was able to get information for us from the driver. Also the return bus ride took 7 hours instead of 5, and we have no idea why.
Beautiful area where you will not get bored and photographed. Very varied walks to beautiful villages. Villagers walk along with the long walk to the rice fields to help you on the sometimes slippery journey. Halfway they say goodbye with the expectation that you will buy something from them. The guides were very friendly and told a lot about the area. Spoke English well.
Our tour guide Me, was excellent. Spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about the area. Would recommend to all, however some fitness is required.
Organization was well organized. Well informed bij mail with latest changes. Hotel was good and service level very high. The guide was terrific!
