The tour was super! However, I am not sure if our guide knew what tour we have booked… we saw multiple Vietnamese villages, a cave and went for lunch but I do not recall seeing a waterfall. Nonetheless the experience while riding a motorbike was amazing. If you book this ride, be sure to be somewhat ready to cruise on some narrow and steep terrain. You will not just drive on the motorway but rather on the local roads. In fact, we did not seemany tourists while on the bike. It was fantastic!

We had a fantastic day visiting the waterfalls, and walking through the countryside and local villages. Our guide Lem was fantastic, very enthusiastic, helpful and charismatic. Great way to get out of Sapa and see how the locals live.

Guide (Lu) was on time and all 3 of us enjoyed her well paced hike She was able to cater to the weakest n was looking out for her while we climb on up to the waterfalls. During hike thru villages she was also helpful.

The tour was nice and very interesting. A little more strenuous than expected, but definitely doable! Delicious lunch and the woman who gave us the tour spoke good English and was very very nice!

The best tour we did in Vietnam. The scenery was beautiful and the guides were incredibly kind and helpful.
