Hi Ms Chi,
I have completed the trip with your company and I would like to give you an honest feedback.
The itinerary is fantastic. The whole experience in riding thru the country side was very fulfilling. The homestay in Mai Chu was also fantastic. The host was equally good. Food provided by them is also good. The guide was knowledgeable with the journey and overall is a very memorable and wonderful trip .
