Brilliant experience not to be missed We didn’t really do any research before booking the 3 day tour. It was such a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed every bit. Tommy our guide was excellent. He adapted to the weather and always checked we were happy with the itinerary. He is such a good tour guide and we can’t recommend him enough. Pu Luong and Trang A were incredible places. The tour gets you off the beaten track , through remote villages and areas. Accommodation is a great, and set in the most beautiful landscapes.

An exceptional experience We enjoyed absolutely everything about this wonderful tour. Communication with the company was faultless ( thank you Christophe) from the outset. Accommodation and food were exceptional. The tour itself was a lovely mix of physical activity (swimming, cycling and trekking), visiting the villages and relaxing at the accommodation. Our guide TK was wonderful- friendly, professional and flexible- and he looked after us so well from pick up to drop off. We particularly appreciated how he facilitated our conversations with the women weavers in the villages as their work was of particular interest to me. The community- based ethos of the company was a factor in our choosing their tour and we saw clear evidence of their commitment many times over the three days. I recommend Eco Travel 100%

Get off the beaten track with this personalised, family friendly tour of Pu Luong and Ninh Binh. Travelling as 2 families with children ages 11 & 13 we were extremely impressed by this tour company (eco green) and the tour. I chose this tour based on a a few reviews at the time and the desire to get off the beaten track and see some something different in north Vietnam. The tour company exceeded our expectations providing a private and memorable experience for both families. We had our own private, spacious bus and knowledgeable guide for the entire trip. The company even helped us expedite our visas when we experienced delays and catered to our dietary needs including any allergies. They were also very accommodating eg after a tiring hike to the villages and caves allowing us to pay and scooter back to the top which the children loved. The food and accommodation was exceptional particularly in Pu Luong. I would highly recommend this tour. Many thanks to Christophe and Hung for the opportunity to create some special memories.

A great way to visit Pu Luong and Mai Chau This was an excellent experience! Our tourguide Hung was very friendly and incredibly knowledgeable on the history of Vietnam and South East Asia in general, so we learned a lot during our trip! We were taken to some beautiful spots, most of these were "on the beaten track", but the benefit of doing this tour is that all the transport is provided and organised for you, which is really helpful in these remote locations where public transport is scarce. The main tourist locations in this region are still less busy than the main rural tourist destinations in the area, such as Sapa. The second accommodation spot in particular is a real highlight and is the nicest place my partner and I have stayed at in Vietnam. The food, atmosphere, staff, room and unexpected entertainment were all amazing and we loved every second. The first accommodation had lovely food, pool and atmosphere, but unfortunately the room was not that clean - there were blood stains on the sheets and the pillowcases were also dirty. They also seemed to have a slight cocroach issue - I was woken up in the night with one crawling on me. We understand that the insects may be out of the hosts control and normally a slightly scuffy room would not bother us, but as this experience is higher on the payment scale for Vietnam, it was slightly disappointing. Just something for the company/you to consider and manage expectations of before you go, as this was just our experience! Overall it was a still a great stay and if these issues could be resolved then we would have no complaints about this location. Overall, we had an excellent time, saw some areas of outstanding beauty and didn't have to worry about any of the logistics, and we were happy to be accompanied by Hung along the way!

An undiscovered treasure We had an amazing time on this trip which we chose as an alternative to visiting Sapa and we are so glad we did.The scenery was stunning and unspoilt and so quiet and peaceful.Our guide TK really was the best.He ensured we took the best paths and roads to see the natural environment and the local people and their way of life.His local knowledge of the area meant he could share insights into the White and Blck Thai people's customs and traditions whilst also knowing the best routes to take.He was careful to ensure the trip encompassed everything we wanted and thoroghly looked after us.He is an asset to the company a real gentleman.The places we stayed were so special too.Mai Chau Rustic House had great local dishes,a lovely swimming pool and we were upgraded to an enormous room whilst Eco Garden Lodge was in the most beautiful setting with fabulous gardens.Their food was delicious and the swimming pool had the most perfect view overlooking the valley and rice paddies.The emphasis on giving back to the local community and looking after the national park made me pleased that I had used this company.I thoroughly recommend it.

Phenomenal tour This was a really fantastic tour. We got to see some great sights including the rice terraces, the Thai minority people and phenomenal landscape. The bamboo boat tour was especially fun, we got to sit with our feet in the water and watch the local children swim and play, while the adults fished and brought the buffalo to the river. Double Đức was our guide and he was great. He was very funny, gave us great facts and information about the area, and clearly loves his job. He made us feel really welcome and spent a lot of time making sure we had some great photos to look back on. He kept us up to date on all the timings for example when the bus would arrive, when lunch was being served etc. He was also very respectful of our space whilst we were at the hotel. Due to the weather conditions, we were unable to make the trek to the bat cave, however we still got to see so much and learn a lot so we don’t feel like we missed out. The accommodation was lovely. The views were incredible, the staff were very friendly and accommodating, and room was clean and comfortable, and finally the food was outstanding (fresh, and big portions). Would absolutely recommend this tour if you want to see a side of Vietnam not well known. If you get Double Đức as your guide, you are in for a treat!

Highly recommend for solo travellers. A great way to see 3 places in a short space of time and meet new friends. Loved the trip. Nat was a great tour leader, really well organised and kept us busy so that we enjoyed every minute. A great combination of activities and wonderful experience. Thank you, Nat!

Beautiful places, great tour Had a great time with my lovely guide, TK, on this tour. I'd assumed I'd be in a tour group so was surprised that it was just me. Luckily, TK quickly became my bestie. The tour was well organized and included a fantastic mix of activities to interesting places, and downtime. The Pu Luong eco-garden is a real treat. I was easily able to add an extra day in Ninh Binh and appreciated the company's flexibility and thoughtfulness (thanks Christophe!).

Visiting mai Chau and puluong has been a life changing experience Mr nat, my tour guide, guided me through a 3 days trip. I got to see the wonderful countryside and lives of Thai people. He speaks excellent English and is very attentive. Can’t wait to come back someday

Wonderful places to visit! Mai Chau et Pu Luong are absolutely beautiful places worth visiting! I highly recommend this company, we stayed at two great locations where we had occasion to explore the life of locals - great experience and delicious food. ;) Our tour guide was Hung who’s a great professional who’s happy to share his knowledge about the places we visited - very kind with great sense of humor. We’ll definitely be back if an occasion occurs!
