The car was comfortable. Foods were good. Activity was not bad.

I choose a tour which is English guide. But when we take on the boat, other tour group which is Japanese guide is coming. It is okay, no problem. But, English guidance and Japanese guidance are little bit different. I don’t know why. I felt Japanese tourists need to pay more money... one more thing, My attending day was raining. We couldn’t know we can take a boat or not. If the weather was bad whole day, we have to go back the city. If it is so, they should have announced before starting the tour. Otherwise we would lose half day. Our guide who is Mr. Vietnam, he was good guy. Thank you for his guide and care of us.

Tour in itself well arranged but was picked up 1 hour late + sitting long in an uncomfortable bus (absolutely no legroom for non-Asians). Boat trip, however, excellent, good food, beautiful nature and fun attractions.
