We booked a 2 days 1 night trekking trip to Ba Be and had a wonderful experience. From booking to the trip this company provided excellent services, accomodating to our needs and tweaking their standard iterinary to meet our requirements. Our guide, was friendly, experienced and handled situations that cropped up with expertise and efficiency. When the cycling turned out to be too strenous, he arranged for bikes speedily for us to pillion ride part of the route, so we could still enjoy the beautiful terrain view in comfort.

The trip was enjoyable - the Nang river is calm and quiet, with lots of mirror image of the hills that lined both sides of the river. There is a Puong cave that has Nang river running through it, and a small waterfall that you can walk to when the boat stop for a break. we stayed at a homestay, The homestay host was very warm and friendly and prepared very scrumptious local meals for us. The room was basic yet clean and tidy. It was a very memorable experience. Highly recommended to those who enjoy nature.
