Great fun and fascinating. Friendly, knowledgeable guides. We didn’t know what we were going to see next! (Well, they had a list they rattled off at the beginning but we have short memories.) wouldn’t have traded this day for anything.

Really lovely friendly guide and comfortable bike. He was very flexible to adjust the order of stops so that I could ride on the train. All of the stops were really different so it was a great combination of activities.

3 hours drive with breaks to Da Lat. Two very nice men, 1 driver and 1 guide made sure we were fine all the time. Many attractions were visited and the guide provided good information. The trip is recommended.

Did 3 waterfalls, cliff jumping and a zipline. The guides spoke good English and I felt very safe. It was a great adventure. They took tons of photos. The lunch was amazing.

Great Tour! With a cool, friendly and kind guide (his name was: thoại) and his taxi driver! Thanks so much for this experience!
