What To Expect

Back in 968 and until 1009 (under the Dinh Dynasty), Hoa Lu was the capital city of Vietnam. And even though the title was taken by Thăng Long in 1010, the city remains a treasury of historical interest to this day. The Hoa Lu - Tam Coc Day Trip takes you on an exciting adventure through natural and cultural landmarks. After hotel pick up in Hanoi, you start off in Ninh Binh and hop on a boat in Tam Coc. Passing through caves and limestone karst formations, you get to explore Vietnam’s landscape in all its diversity. After lunch at a local restaurant, you go on to visit the temples of Dinh and Le Dynasty before heading back to Hanoi.

    Fun and organized trip, lovely place! Great tour guide.
  • Kristyn 17 Feb 2018
    Great tour! I definitely recommend coming here. It’s beautiful and cheap! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained the history of hua Lu. Then had a buffet lunch which was pretty good. Got to try a bunch of Vietnamese food at once. The boat ride was really beautiful. There are ppl on boats who will take your picture and sell it to you later. You can just make friends on the tour bus and take pictures for each other lol. They require tipping the boat rower about $20,000 per person but another group said the boat rower was demanding $50,000 per person. But our rower was fine. The bike ride is definitely scary and rocky but a lot of ppl ended up walking their bikes in the really rocky part. Other parts is do able. Beautiful place. It’s recommended you come March and September I believe is when the rice is planted and turns yellow.

    It is a fantastic day trip to this ancient city. The pickups were hassle free and everything was on time. The highlight is the 1h 40min boat ride where the locals row you along Tam Coc river.
  • Hui Qing Jaime 5 Feb 2018
    The activity was wonderful. Could be better during the spring period where the paddyfields wont be brown. It was still a beautiful boat ride view around the lake! Breathtaking! The tour guide was very informative but he could be more organised. Service could be slightly improved upon. Overall, still a good trip!

    The scenario is beautiful, the lunch is average, the experience could be better if the bus leg space and seat are slightly bigger!
  • Gunjan Kumar 4 Feb 2018
    Good things: Hotel pickup was timely. Ride was comfortable. Lunch was delicious with lots of options. Best part was around 1hr boat ride! So so things: Temple visit. Tiring bicycle ride and our guide seemed confused. Terrible Coffee at one of the rest stops!
  • Shanice 3 Feb 2018
    Overall trip was really great. The guides were very helpful and tried their best to explain their historic culture to us when we were at the ninh binh temples. Though they could have cut short the boat ride in winter weathers as it might be too cold for the weak to bear 2 hours worth of cold wind while on the boat. Other than that, the trip was informative and insightful! :) Recommended!

    Good trip. Unfortunately went on the wrong season where the fields are yet to be yellow. Food is nothing to shout about but was fine.

    One of my best tour in Hanoi! The buffet lunch were awesome. Plenty of foods and they are delicious! I enjoyed the bicycle ride around the small town in Ninh Binh and the boat cruise along the Tam Coc river (about 1hr 30min ride). Please see my video on IG @chongwei__
