“It started so good...”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

The first Tour we booked with them was a local tour of Da Lat´s surrounding attractions such as a Coffee-plantation, the Waterfalls, a Minority Village and a Silk Farm.
The price was reasonable and the guide did a good job - this made us book a second tour with the same guide.
This time it was an overnight-trip to the National Park of Cat Tien with lots of promising attractions - costing us 280.- USD for 2 PAX and one child.
The outcome of this trip was a closed Bear-Sanctuary, a closed Museum, a paved trekking-road and no animals except a few birds in great distance due to poaching.
Our guide knew all these things beforehand and did not hesitate to sell us the tour and turned out to be very sarcastic when we got there.
National Park Cat Tien is not worth a trip as long as poaching is still possible due to corrupt Rangers.
Please be aware that Green Adventure Tours is primarily interested in your money and will take disappointments into account.
This seems to be for trips where the customer like us does not return to Da Lat.

“Avoid, Beware. Dodgy Equipment & Poor Instruction and Command of English”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Please don't go here. We went Canyoning and it was a nightmare. The equipment was shoddy - the life jackets used cord to tie them up, the harnesses were old and tatty, and the rope should have been condemned years ago. It was worn, fraying and unfit for the arduous tasks required of it.

The guides have a poor command of English and their actual instruction, when given was sparse and not adequte for the task at hand.

Their rope skills were ok, but some knots were questionable especially when you saw other groups, the set up paled and you wished there was better supporting ropes and clips.

Parts were quite fun, jumping off the sides and floating down the river and finishing the trip

lunch was sparse and we ran out of water, even though it was provided - there was only 3L for 8 of us.

“Great guides, dodgy equipment”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We had a really fun day out with Green Adventours on their canyoning trip- but bear in mind that this trip is not for the faint of heart and we came out with a few bruises. Our guides were really nice, knowledgable in their knot-tying, spoke English well, and were helpful with even the most nervous in our group. We have experience with rock climbing, and could see that they were skilled with their knots and used good backup belays. The rope, however, had seen better days and seemed to be patched with electrical tape in a few places. Our life jackets didn't fasten properly: where clips used to be there were just shoelaces or bits of rope to tie the jackets on. The helmets given to us were good. We went as part of a group of 11. It was fun to be part of a group, but this was a bit too big as we ended up waiting a bit at some spots. It also meant that at the big waterfall rappel our guides set up 2 ropes where the other tours had only used one- one rope was out in the middle of the current and every single person who went down this rope ended up falling down some section of it, whereas nobody from the tours we watched before ours had fallen. Nobody was hurt, but at this and a couple of other points in our day it seemed like someone could have easily been. Lunch was great. Tour had us waiting for 30 min and one couple waited for an hour.

“Loved it”
Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

I'm surprised to read all these negative reviews as we were nothing but happy with green adventours after our 2 trips with them (mountain biking and canyoning). Canyoning was so much fun, even though I am a massive scaredy cat. I felt safe and the guides spoke good English and were lots of fun. Mountain biking brought us many spectacular views but my physical fitness was not up to the mark so I struggled a lot!
Not only were our tours great with the but there service to us afterwards continued to impress us. Our hostel wouldn't let us leave our bags there whilst we did our last tour (we were getting the night bus that evening) so not only do they let us leave our bags at their office, they also stayed open until our pick up arrived.
Highly recommend these guys!

“Brilliant for Canyoning - Okay for Mountain Biking - Good Prices and Service”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

For Canyoning they were very Excellent. We were just 2 people in our group and had 2 guides - both guides had excellent English (it's Important when abseiling into waterfalls to understand what's going to happen - a friends group who went elsewhere had 8 people so lots of queuing and their guides had little English!). The activity was well run, standard lunch was provided and tasty, and they took many photos for us during the activity.
Mountain Biking - I did this twice with them - On both occassions the staff were friendly and tailroed the route as requested by our group. The only downside was the brakes - they were a little loose and this could cause havoc on the downhills.
Summary: I really like this operator and would Happily recommend. Just check your bike brakes first haha :)
