We researched many tours for Ba Be Lake and Ban Gioc waterfalls and decided to go with Ama Journey, because we liked their program. Most tours were 3 days, which seemed a bit rushed to us, but this one is 4 days.
Contact with Hoang was very smooth, his English is very good and he was willing to make a small adjustment in our tour. On the day of the tour Hoang and our tour guide showed up at the hotel. Hoang brought us a nice gift, we paid the balance and off we went on our tour.
First day we drove to Ba Be Lake and went for a bikeride to a cave.
Second day we spend most of our time on a boat on the lake and the river, visiting a pagoda and a waterfall. Scenery was beautiful.
Third day we went to the Ban Gioc waterfalls and the Pagoda. Again beautiful scenery. In the afternoon we visited the tiger cave.
Last day we worked our way back to Hanoi making several stops on the way in the Lang son area.
We were very satisfied with this tour. We liked the driver and our tour guide mr. Phong who took good care of us, was very knowledgable and as a bonus also a good photographer.
