The Way to Ban Gioc
Jul 2020
Getting up into Vietnam's wild northeast is not easy, and Mr. Linh's outfit is a pretty clear best option among relatively few decent operators. The 3-day Ba Be and Ban Gioc trip was as advertised and about what we expected - rural homestays and lots of driving. Seeing Ban Gioc Waterfall on the Viet-Chinese border was worth it, and the 'Tiger Cave' was quite a sight to see, too. On this tour we also hiked along the border with China to Ho Chi Minh's digs upon his return to Vietnam. Long stretches in the back of the van are the key drawback of this tour, but at this point, if you want to see Ban Gioc, there's really no better way.

Amazing trip to Northern parts of Vietnam with Ban Gioc Waterfall and Ba Be Lake
We did the 3d/2n tour to Ban Gioc Waterfall and Ba Be Lake / National Park and loved it. Booked a group tour, but ended up going as a private tour, as we were the only ones for that specific day. Went with a private SUV and toured through the northern parts of Vietnam. Stunning landscapes and friendly local people and tribes. It was the least touristic area we've witnessed so far in Vietnam. Local homestays where amazing as well, as we slept in a little Nung village with Mr. Kim's homestay. Food was always great as well and always too much to eat. :-)
Our guide Mr. Linh was knowledgeable and friendly as well. He took good care of us.
Nature higlights were the Ban Gioc Waterfall and Ba Be Lake for sure.
So we can highly recommend this tour with Mr. Linh's adventure! Maybe it would be better to do this trip longer if you can, as a lot of driving is involved in this tour.

Such an amazing review thank you so much! Hosting curious travelers just like you is a pleasure. We are very pleased to have provided you with so many memories and an unforgettable time in Northeast Vietnam thanks to our team and especially tour guide Mr Linh. Reaching Ban Gioc Waterfall through mountains passes takes some time indeed, we settled for 3 days because visitors mainly want to see the whole of Vietnam and their time is therefore limited. Thanks again for travelling with us! Mr Linh's Adventures Team

North Vietnam a paradise of new knowledge
A most wonderful and interesting experience with the perfect guidance of Nha who showed us all, he really got out of his way to explain the history, the best spots to take pictures, to introduce us to the locals it’s cultures and foods. It was a tour with heart. And all the people we met were just beautiful smiles! Thank you team, also our driver Mr Thanh was marvelous, profesional and careful.

Incredible trip to Ba Be and the ban Gioc waterfalls
Feb 2020 • Couples
We would like to thank Long Long (our guide) and shorty Long (our driver) for their excellent service during our trip to the northern part of the country. It was a terrific experience, we had some good laughs and Long Long has taught us well as to the Vietnamees culture and customs. Shorty Long was the best driver ever. Thank you both.

No Recommendation.
Feb 2020 • Friends
We did the 3d2n tour with Mr.Linhs Adventure with the guide Hue. First of all the transport, accommodation and food was fine. But I cannot recommend the tour at all. The guide was very unprofessionell, he asked the girls very private questions like how many boyfriends they had in the past and was getting very offended, after we wanted to do a little trekking instead of visiting a second cave. Furthermore the tour is just for people which really like to sit in the car and thats it. The price is definitely to high.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Indeed Ban Gioc waterfalls are not close to Hanoi, it is located on the border with China, and you have to drive through mountains passes to access it. 3 days is the minimum we can do to go so far north and return, we cannot cheat the kilometers! Secondly, we would like to address the accusations made against a member of our team. This type of accusations is not taken lightly and we will of course investigate. The easiest would have been for you to come see us as soon as you returned to discuss directly and help us understand. Mr Linh's Adventures Team

Fun trip to Ba Be Lake
We used Mr. Linh,s adventures to organize our trip to Ba Be Lake. Working with Helen in Hanoi was very professional and easy. We wanted to do a trek to a different home stay and spend the night which she was able to arrange for us. Because we didn’t,t do the specific package we had to arrange our own travel to the lake area. We ended up hiring a car to take us both directions because of timing. Mr Linh’s home stay was very comfortable and clean. Food was plentiful and the showers were hot. It is located on a small lake that has access to Ba Be Lake. The weather was cool so we didn’t get to use the kayaks, but if it was warmer it would have been a fun activity. The waterfall is ok, the food at the local restaurant was good and the cave that they tKe you to via boat was spectacular. Bring warm cloths and a rain jacket because you are on the boat for at least 2-3 hours. The trip from Hanoi takes about 4-5 hours and is very curvy, if you are prone to motion sickness then take something ahead of time. All in all worth the trip.

Thank you so much for your review, we are very glad you enjoyed your time in Ba Be. The park and its lake are so special, we are happy to introduce it to travelers. In one area you can find so many characteristics of Vietnam's unique landscape between the karst mountains, the caves and the waterfalls.

The homestays and food are good and the guide knows his Facts in good English.

We enjoyed this tour in the north of Vietnam. Even though the sun wasn't shining the mist provided many atmospheric scenes. It is a lot of time in the bus but you do get to see some sites less visited.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience! We are glad you enjoyed your time in the northeast of Vietnam. Indeed the road can seem rather long as we need to drive on mountain roads, we do try to stop as soon as possible but we cannot cheat the number of kilometers! The scenery of each destination is worth it though as well as the time spent with local ethnic families. We hope to see you again, on a sunny day this time ;) Mr Linh's Adventures Team

Unforgettable experience
Jan 2020 • Solo
The whole itinerary is well planned. Though it was a very long distance but it took regular stops for rest and some historical spots.

Ban Gioc waterfall is excellent and Ba Be Lake is so peaceful.

Not so much trekking and is a comfortable tour on the whole.
