It was absolutely fantastic. We enjoyed every minute of it and Peter (Trong) really made it for us. His knowledge, care, and organising skills were outstanding. One of the best things we have ever done.

Our guide Thuyen was wonderful and I would recommend him to family and friends. His service was excellent, he was extremely patient and friendly and made me feel very comfortable on the trails and in the homestay. He also has a fantastic sense of humour. Overall, we were very happy with the trip.
