My wife and I travelled to Cao Bang region with Vietnam Top Trading and Travel Company. The trip was an excellent blend of scenery, history, and cultural immersion. Regarding the scenery: Most of the travel is through the limestone mountains. They are simply beautiful, particularly when sprinkled with terraced rice farms and the like. Much of the drive is through twisting mountainous road providing a variied landscape around each bend. The waterfall at the border is the 4th largest in the world and has multiple layered drops which are unlike anything I have seen. The Ba Be National Park was traveled across on the last day and is simply beautiful. I took a dip and that alone was worth the price of admission.Regarding the village experience: Both villages were very welcoming and scenically situated. One community, consisting of 40 or so homes, was totally geared to producing incense. The entire product is manufactured here which I found quite interesting. Both homestays were somewhat rustic, but not to the extreme. The food was excellent and sanitation was not a concern. Bathroom facilities were western toilets. The opportunity to stay in an ethnic Vietnamese rural village was quite extraordinary. The history of the border between China and Vietnam has been a flash point for conflict between 1 AD and 1988. The guide took us to some of these sites and explained their historic significance. I came away with a much better understanding of the French and American wars of 1946-1975 as well as the Cambodian and Chinese war of 1978-1979. Our guide, Luan, was excellent- well organized, knowledgeable, sociable, prompt, and reliable. He had a great sense of humor as well. Since a lot of time is spent in the car, it was a great opportunity to chat about life in Vietnam. A word about the driver--- this is a long trip along mountainous winding roads with the usual Vietnamese road rules (none). A bad driver could ruin the trip. Our driver, Trong, was great. I only looked at the road to see the sights and never once got a case of white knuckles. Remarkable. So for us the trip exceeded our high expectations. One caveat however. A lot of time is spent driving to get to these great destinations. It is made enjoyable by the guides banter and the scenery. For those who tend towards car sickness and do not like long trips, this excursion may not be for you.

I and my wife came back to Vietnam with my son in this trip. We met Vietnam Travel Top for Ban Gioc - Ba Be Trip in 3 days 2 nights. It was so good with captivating views of northern Vietnam, experienced different traditions and custom of different ethnic groups. The foods were amazing and delicious! Our guide, David was very helpful and informative! We enjoyed the trip so much thanks to him!

I went with my brother and a friend and it was only us so basically a private tour. Our tourguide Loi was very enthusiastic and helped us with some minor inconveniences for us to adapt to the local lifestyle. If you want to escape the city, you should hop on this tour to enjoy the view and fresh air.

I did this tour with three of my friends.
The places we visited were amazing and the guide (Leon) has always been available to explain us the history of Vietnam and stop the car every time we wanted to take pictures of the landscapes around the mountains.
The home stay we spent our nights are the right place to be if the aim is to live the old and authentic culture of this Country. The food is very good as well.

I did this tour with 2 of my friends. The landscape was beautiful. The tour guide gives you a lot of opportunities to take pictures. Sometimes the car rides to other places are a bit long, but the car is nice and cool and we even got the chance to do kareoke in the car. You have a lot of privacy at the homestays and they are nice and clean. If you’re looking for a tour with beautiful landscapes, a good amount of free time and an involved and friendly tour gide and driver, then you should choose this one.

We booked this tour because we wanted to experience this part of Vietnam when it was still untouched by mass tourism, and that’s exactly what we got! The first day we took the ‘touristic route’ which was absolutely amazing, local villages and landscapes galore. An experience I will certainly never forget, and maybe the most memorable moment of our vacation!

I think the images speak for themselves, and show how pretty this part of Vietnam is!
