Did this tour in Nov of 2016 and loved it. The guide and driver were marvelous. Very informative and accomadating. Lots of great information about the area that we toured. We got to see a lot of the area and really experience the life and culture of this part of Vietnam. For a day tour we got a lot done. Loved the bike ride through the rice fields and the lazy sail down the river. Bought the hat to get into the experience more. Also found the tour of the art gallery at the end in Hanoi and wonderful final touch to the tour. Could not resist buying some true Vietnamese artwork. Would highly recommend the tour and the tour company!!! I give it a 5.
