We are a group of 9 people booked the Bai Dinh Trang An Tour with AZ Local Trip. The guide Eric (Nam) was excellent and passionate even though ours was only his fourth tour for this company. He was knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer our questions about the Pagoda and the everything about Buddhism of which we were very curious about. We actually did a lot of walking in Bai Dinh Pagoda since the area is so large, which was a little bit exhausting. However, the delicious lunch cured it all :D. Everything else on the trip was great. They even gave us free sim card which was very useful during our stay in Vietnam. Thanks Daisy, Eric for making our trip completed!

"Really great experience! I went on this trip alone and it was amazing. The temple was a really cool experience and not as many steps as I thought it would be. There was one part of steep stairs but that was about it. The caves were really cool, although the person rowing aren't exactly the most pleasant person but that has nothing to do with this company so I'm not knocking them for it. It was a really beautiful area. The bus we ride in was nice and had A/C which is always welcomed. But the real reason I recommend this place is because of the guides. Our main guide was Kimmy who was a goof ball in the best way and was really fun to be around. There was an intern Lihng who was sweet as well. Between the both of them it made the experience very enjoyable"
