    Should add a function in app to let customer revise their contact number after they arrived destination country cause in a lot of cases people will get a local number and their home SIM is off. I thought it's very possible local agent will call me to my home mobile number so I put it back on, guess some people just missed that and wondered why no one called to confirm anything. Overall, the trip is fine and tour guide was doing his job the why it should be. I feel the trip is not really my thing but it has nothing to do with local agent's arrangement.

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.

    It was quite a long trip (the travelling time like around 5 to 6 hrs in total). The 'temple' wasn't so interesting and not worth for a visit. The lunch buffet was acceptable but don't expect too much. The river journey was quite fun but make sure you are well protected from the fierce sun. And need to pay some tips as well. The bike trip was just fine. But no introduction at all. Just follow the guide and have a ride, that's it. If you got plenty of time in Hanoi, it's fine to go this tour, otherwise maybe joining the Ha Long Bay is better(!?)

    The highlight of the trip was the sampan boat ride. Unfortunately it rained so we didn't get to do the cycling activity. Overall it's still a good experience
  • Yan*** 12 May 2017
    Decent trip overall. Weather was good. The cycling segment was very fast and brief, wouldve been better if more time was given to stop at certain spots to take pictures of the scenery. For those going, please check your bicycles properly before heading off on the joyride.

    Our tour guide was great but the tour overall was just average I thought. Ninh Binh was ok, I could have skipped it. Cruising on the river was really nice and the highlight of the tour. The scenery was beautiful but it was super hot! I didn't care much for all the vendors selling us overpriced snacks and drinks at the end. It felt like we had no choice but to buy something from them. It felt like it was mandatory to give a tip to the lady who rowed our boat as well. She literally grabbed my arm until I gave her a tip. I was going to anyway – I already had the money in my hand – I just didn't appreciate how aggressive she was. Not cool.

    This is a very disappointing experience. The travel agency ended up no show after we spent ~3 hours waiting (1 hour for pick-up and 2 hours for calling Klook support and local support (ps. The local operator is not responsive as I called several times and just got 1 call answered). The travel agency claimed it was due to system error and offered us to reschedule to the next day. We have no choice but to cancel it as we are leaving Hanoi on the next day. I believe neither Klook team nor local travel agency intends to make it happen but it obviously that 1) there is still a risk on your trip even after your voucher is confirmed (I even additionally wrote a mail separately beforehand for double-confirm), 2) for people who have set/tight traveling schedule (no flexibility for reschedule), you may want to reconsider before booking. We ended up finding nearby local traveling agency for help and we are on the way now. All I can hope now is to get refund smoothly.

    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.
  • HERN*** 27 Feb 2017
    Very beautiful and worth every penny spent on the trip!
  • Xiao*** 19 Feb 2017
    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.
