A Recent Review of this tour

Rose was a wonderful guide. She made an extra effort to pass on interesting information about her country, culture, etc in addition to just the sights we were seeing. We did two all day tours with Rose including Tran Am/Dang Caves and the Perfume Pagoda. To accommodate our 'Free Time" schedule with our tour company (OAT), she arranged to start our tour several hours early and got us back on time for our planned events. Highly recommend Rose!
