We had a wonderful experience in this tour. We enjoyed the hike to the beautiful Love waterfalls. Following that we did a quick hike to Silver waterfalls. Our tour guide Trang Trang was excellent. She took us to a beautiful spot where we had lunch. The walk through Sin Chai village was good. Trang gave us lots of useful information about the life of villagers. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Thank you Trang...

Beautiful area where you will not get bored and photographed. Very varied walks to beautiful villages. Villagers walk along with the long walk to the rice fields to help you on the sometimes slippery journey. Halfway they say goodbye with the expectation that you will buy something from them. The guides were very friendly and told a lot about the area. Spoke English well.
