We booked 4 day/3 nights package and it was the best part of our trip in Vietnam. The tour was very well organized down to the small details. Our guide for most of the time, made the trip very comfortable, worry-free and full of amazing discoveries. All was left for us to do is to enjoy beautiful nature and learn about local life. Unforgettable trip off the beaten path! Highly recommended for nature lovers who seek authentic experiences.
