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.

    Nice tour guide.Comfort bus, nice food. Average good for boat & cycling tour.
  • Wai Leong 16 Oct 2018
    Full of fun and very informative tour guide. The only drawback is the rowing trip where tips were asked and the locals force you to buy drinks. Anyway, good job to tour guide
  • wl 15 Oct 2018
    It was a nice experience to visit Hoa Lu Temples and Tam Coc, enjoyed the bicycle ride very much.
  • Marissa 15 Oct 2018
    It would have been even more beautiful if the weather didn’t feel like 35 degrees on the boat ride. Standard of buffet lunch wasn’t great - food wasn’t really warm. Tour guide spoke good English was was very engaging. The driver was good and navigated is safely in the crazy Vietnam traffic.
  • Theodora 15 Oct 2018
    Beautiful landscapes awaits you at this tour! There are local merchants targeting tourists so just be firm if you are not interested
  • HUI THENG 14 Oct 2018
    Great arrangement of day tour activities.Tour guide is friendly and make sure all of us enjoy the day tour. Well sharing on the history of the temple. Wonderful boat riding experience.
  • Yi Jane 12 Oct 2018
    great experience. recommend to go during cooling season :)
  • Eva 12 Oct 2018
    Pick up and drop off were timely and smooth. Start of the tour was a bit slow, with not much to see. Tour guide tried his best to explain the history of the temple we visited. Lunch was buffet style in a large open dining hall along with all the other tour groups. Great selection but average taste. Afternoon activities were the highlight. 30 min bicycle tour was a bit rushed, would’ve liked to spend more time at the temple at th end of the path. Bicycles were very old but rideable. Boat tour that ended the tour was excellent albeit a bit long. Got to see Ninh Binh as it is photographed. Many tourists around but excellent scenery!
  • Villa 11 Oct 2018
    a must activity. Very relaxing and refreshing.. The tour guide is amazing and great!
  • Tahlia 10 Oct 2018
    An overall enjoyable tour. The boat ride is definitely the highlight of the day, going for a decent amount of time. Your enjoyment of the bike ride seems to be solely dependent on whether you get a comfortable bike (with or without working breaks).
