I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in a shorter nature hike. Gorgeous views, really fun but mild bouldering and refreshing swims in natural pools & rivers. Our guide Tu did an excellent job! Great english, knowledgable, social and well prepared. Also, my wife is a vegetarian and we forgot to mention that before the tour began. For the provided lunch, Tu re-directed us to the most amazing local Vietnamese Vegetarian restaurant and it was the perfect ending to a great day. Several other pieces of advice. (1) Bring some water as well. Yes the tour provides some but generally tourists need a lot more water than locals around here! (2) Remember your sunscreen. (3) Remember a towel with your change of clothes. There are showers available at the park entrance so you can rinse off before putting on your fresh clothes, but a towel would have been nice. (4) Your shoes need grip, but if you have something without socks, that is best, as you swim a lot!

The three lakes are located in a beautiful environment. We enjoyed hiking through the rocks and the cool down in the water. The guide was attentive, kind and pointed out many interesting details about the plants and animals on the way. an absolutely wonderful experience!

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.

This tour is a great way to get away from the noise of the city for a while. We enjoyed paddeling along the river, seeing Banana and Mango Gardens and Rice Fields. So nice and peaceful!

Great tour was really well run, had an amazing time
