My best tour

I highly recommend visiting this region. Out of all the tours I did in vietnam this was by far my favourite. It was amazing to get a look at what life is like here. We had a guide who rode with us and stopped many times for photo opportunities and in a village shop for a drink. All the locals greeted us. It was fantastic to be out of the hussle and bustle of hanoi and at this fascinating place!

My friend and I did a 3 days tour with I’d already spent quite a bit of time exploring the Mai Chau region- not only did AsiaTourAdvisor take us to places I’d never been, but we went to the village of a minority group I’d never even heard of. Once we were a few kilometres out of town we saw zero other tourists all day – not an easy accomplishment in a region so popular. It was a very comfortably-paced day – we fit in plenty of varied sights without ever feeling hurried, and had some fascinating chats along the way. Apart from having a great day, I was very impressed by the way in which Phuong genuinely care about and support the local villages we visited. From what I’ve seen and heard, many of the other companies organising treks in the Mai Chau region take advantage of the minority groups rather than helping them in any meaningful way.
