    Really professional guide with a good sense of humour! We had to wait for a replacement bus, but Tan took good care of the group and by the time we reached Halong Bay we had all forgotten about it. Great boat trip and lunch and fun kayaking experience. Definitely recommended!

    Excellent hike, somewhat adventurous
    We were in a group of four with guide Tom and a helper. The most strenuous part was the hike along five lakes.
