Amazing experience! I did the 3D2N. My easy rider Penh was so kind, sweet and always made sure I was ok, hydrated and had enough to eat haha. Penh was a great driver, I always felt safe. He went above and beyond being mine and the groups photographer 😆. The group wasn’t too big and Penh made sure we got to different view spots early or one that’s less busy. The home stays were comfortable and clean. I found the food got better the second and last day for sure. We ended the night with happy water and karaoke which was super fun. The only downside was at the start boarding the bus to drive up to Ha Giang, it was a very disorganized chaos that ended up working out in the end but myself and a lot of people were waiting an hour after the schedule time of departure. This was an experience I will always remember the stunning views, the people you get to meet in your group and along the way. Shout out to Penh for being so hospitable. This was definitely the best part about my trip to Vietnam!

I loved this 2-day tour in the mountains, the boat trip was also great! on the other hand regarding the night buses, the guy who came to pick me up from my hotel on the way there was frankly super unpleasant, not well organized, our suitcases even fell on the road when we were at the meeting point to pick up the big bus , I had to go see him to tell me if I should get on this bus or no, no communication, no smile. In addition there were mistakes on the bus because there was not enough room for me I had to change twice... our guide on site was very friendly and smiling but he could not give lots of explanations because he didn't speak English well. The group was great and the landscapes were magnificent! My room was fine but I didn't have a window... luckily we went out and had a great Karaoke evening even with the guide! The return by bus, same guy, very unfriendly...

This is a once in a lifetime experience and Chestnut Travel were very informative and easy to reach for all information on the trip. The tour itself was a unforgettable journey and our guide Danny (and our own drivers Mil and Jet) were 10/10 Heroes on driving us around for those days being so friendly and great to be around too. Also blessed with everyone in our group being amazing too. All the food and accommodation was amazing too. I’d highly recommend booking with Chestnut Travel!

Our group had the best time on this tour of the Ha Giang loop! Our host Quyền was so helpful and all our easy riders were friendly, fun, and safe drivers! We felt like this was the perfect mix of riding/stopping off for sightseeing/food breaks. Our group was the perfect size (about 10 of us) and we all had a blast the entire time! Especially after some happy water and karaoke ☺️

Really well organised and great value for money! Probably the best thing I’ve done in Vietnam!
