The trip was fabulous, drawing together a friendly, kind eclectic group of people all with teenagers in tow. The organisation was fantastic and the personalised service made it very special. The activities from riding through gorgeous village areas to kayaking in Ha Long Bay - were my daughter's fave parts while for me the camaraderie, and time out to relax was perfect.

Overall our trip was amazing and our tour group got along extremely well for the majority of the time. Although at times the bike riding and/or kayaking was a bit strenuous but everyone pulled together and helped each other get through. Given this the sights seen while bike riding and kayaking were stunning and unable to be appreciated any other way. The food was mostly very enjoyable if your ready for an adventure and we found that the itinerary was a flexible in allowing little extra breaks here and there. Accomodation was clean and convienient and house boat was a highlight.

What an amazing tour! It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into the planning of the tour - the organisation was excellent and the activities and day to day of the tour really flowed. It really felt like a trip of adventure, discovery and exploration. People on the tour were so friendly. Each family at the home stays were ready to welcome you into their home, sit around the table to feast and share a shot or two of rice wine! Excellent tour, highly recommend.

Halong Bay is an incredible geological masterpiece. A bit touristy but worth the trip. The bay was always calm and peaceful. Halong bay is really the gem of Vietnam. The trip to the vegetable village was great too. We love the part wen we got to water the plants.
