    This tour was well planned - the boat trip was great however keep in mind that you have to return via the same boat so prepare to have a sore bottom.
    The food was a little under par and you are left to try and figure out what it is you are eating this may have just been our tour guide
    There is allot of steps and walking I suggest you use the cable cart as the walk is the same thing over and over.
    many thanks.
    was a little disgusted that the boat lady at the end of the trip walked around asking for tips / money from everyone. we were prepared to do it anyway but asking was a little rude.

    We took this tour during the week of Tet. If you are not Vietnamese, I would suggest taking this tour at any other time of year besides February and March. There were thousands of rural Vietnamese making their annual pilgrimage to Perfume Pagoda when we went.
    Our group was a mix of local people from the countryside and 6 of us from other countries. The guide spoke basic English but it was difficult for us as there was much more emphasis on the local group. Our guide left us to ourselves for three hours in the afternoon telling us to meet at a central point at 4 pm- so we did not get much information/history, etc. The lunch that was served was in a large dining room, serving dishes put out on the table but no plates so we were not exactly sure how to eat it. I am certain that the time of year was very instrumental in this experience. Seeing the cave where those making the pilgrimage with gifts was very neat so I have very mixed emotions about this experience.

    Great tour! Our guide Hien was really nice and very informative! One note for women bring a wrap or skirt or else you cannot enter the temple.
