Excellent tour with the fantastic local guide Danny. Thank You Danny for answering all my questions and giving us all little local stories as well as facts on all the places we visited. Often on these tours you are not given enough time to explore and enjoy the beach and the forest but Danny gave us enough time to swim, walk and explore by ourselves and made sure that we had enough time to walk past the touristy area on the beach to a more serene area. Also, lots of time to kayak....was exhausted when I returned to hotel but in a very good way! Well worth doing and one of the best tours that I have done in Vietnam. Thanks again Danny, so glad that you were our guide!

Really lovely trip. And the guide was awesome! Would recommend this trip to anyone
