We enjoyed our trip very much! Our guide Phil was kind, personable, patient and helpful. He shared info about the pagoda and surrounds, but also gave us space to enjoy it on our own. It was a small group of great folks, and we had plenty of time to explore. Lunch was fabulous! Served family style. The Perfume Pagoda is a wonderful day trip from Hanoi! Bring your sun screen and hat and be prepared to tip your rower.

Enjoyable, interesting, ample tasty lunch selection, enthusiastic tour guide, small group meshed well - an experience not to be missed and would recommend. However, the tin/bamboo boat seating most uncomfortable especially for the elderly given time spent paddling - a little cushioning might be considered?
