This tour was amazing for taking nice photos. Anyways, it was also super interesting to see how incense sticks are locally produced. We saw the train on the train street and our guides were really patient in taking pictures for everybody with nice picture suggestions. Can recommend this experience!

It was amazing! Our guide Minh was fantastic! Best part was him singing Vietnamese songs while we were going down the river. And he told the story of his people and the pagoda, cave and the emperors daughter deep from the heart.

Minh was very knowledgeable about the surroundings. He explained the history about the complex. The trip was well planned.

Great service by the tour company , kind and attentive

I had a lot of fun! Great guide and beautiful place :)
