Review for another Bamba tour
“We spent an amazing experience. My friend and I are always looking for adventure and this trip really matched with our expectations. We loved the city tour by bicycle and we learnt a lot about the places thanks to the guides. The trip to Halong Bay was amazing, one of the most beautiful place we ever seen! Truly recommend Bamba. ”

Review for another Bamba tour
“The trek was very well organized from the beginning to end. I was quite nervous to do it but the team was very motivating and attentive, which I really appreciated. The guide was very informative and the food was great.”

Make your own way to the meeting point. Enjoy a snack and coffee (not included) in a nearby coffee shop before starting your adventure exploring fascinating caves in the jungle. Before entering the majestic caves, we will provide you with all the necessary equipment and your expert guide will give an introduction on the cave, on the safety guidelines, and will explain how to get in and out of the subterranean caves by following the signal system. The caves are not tight or narrow, so there will be no need to swim underwater (no scuba gear required).
As soon as we get inside the cave, you will admire amazing limestone formations. We will be underground for about 2 or 3 hours. During this time you will see stalagmites, stalactites, sinkholes and incredible limestone columns. Be amazed by fascinating turquoise cenotes and underground labyrinths. Reach pathways that open into larger caves, where you will have some free time to swim, relax, and enjoy the sunlight. Go back to dry land where you'll find some facilities to dry yourself off. Breathe fresh jungle air and enjoy the view while you taste a snack. After this amazing adventure, we will head back to the meeting point where this amazing subterranean adventure will come to an end.
