Travel through Hoa Lu's scenic countryside, go on a boat cruise in Tam Coc, visit ancient temples and more, all on a day trip from Hanoi
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.
For the price we are playing for day trip,it was great! The biggest operator in Hanoi runs this trip (APT company). There are some issues with the bus back so we have to waited a little bit for the driver to get the bus fixed. Lunch buffet lard right across from the boat deck. Nothing fancy but it's a meal for the countryside. Drinks had to be paid extra which seems fair. The guide Mindy was kind and attentive. She tried to remember where we all came from and names. Good attitude and offer helps when needed by different guests. For frost timer, this is a good choice to start at.
Great comanion and experience. Food was pretty bad though, it was a buffet but the quality was not the best. The experience to ride the boat with locak people was awesome , saw a lot of beuautiful stones and caves. Indeed this is better than Sapa in terms of the attraction but the overall this tour is only ok.
Very beautiful and worth every penny spent on the trip!
Overall the trip is bearable as travel distance is only 1.30hr to 2hr and English-speaking tour guide is very informative and helpful. However, since it needed to cover two places , it can get a little rush at Hoa Lu and for cycling activity as well.
very, very beautiful, highly recommended for anyone visiting vietnam
