    overall experience is good. travelling time is about 2hrs, per way. much shorter than Halong Bay. 3 activities for this trip 1) temple visit 2) boat ride 3) cycling boat ride is fun and took abt 1.5hrs to n fro... nice scenery along the way but after awhile u'll get bored cos it's d same thru-out the journey. padi fields along the way on both side. lunch is included which is buffet style. juz some simple dishes like veg soup, fried fish, chicken, etc... would recommend if it's your 1st visit to Hanoi.

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.

    I can say it was a nice trip. But I was also very disappointed, especially in Hoa Lu. The guide was very cheerful and kind, but she didn’t know the history and meaning of the places and things enough. She skipped many temples and places and instead she gave us long free time. I saw many other tour guides explaining the history and meaning at many places in Hoa Lu. I really wished my tour guide was like them. It was meaningless to visit Hoa Lu if we could not know the history and meaning of things in Hoa Lu and the reason why we book a tour guide is to hear the history. I really enjoyed Tam Coc. In my opinion, Tom Coc is much more attractive and fun than Halong Bay. I loved the boat trip. It was very refreshing and the scenery was beautiful. Cycling around Tam Coc was so much fun! But again, the guide didn’t explain anything about history and meaning of the historical things. Overall, I recommend this tour to the people who would like to enjoyed staying peaceful the countryside but I don’t recommend this tour to the people who wish to know the history, culture and meaning of the things in these places.

    The planned activities were great, and my mother and I enjoyed them very much, especially the boat ride. But there were unnecessary stops at massively overpriced souvenir shops both towards and coming back from the Hua Lu/Tam Coc location which were an unnecessary waste of time.
  • Ronald Vincent 23 Feb 2019
    the tour guide that they provide for this tour is very excellent. Mr. Kimi, has a very good sense of humor and very accommodating and full of energy. i highly recommend you to take their services and enjoy your stay in northern vietnam!
  • Kumuda 18 Feb 2019
    Must do! Everything about the trip was fantastic right from the booking process to drop off. We were promptly picked up from our hotel, the bus was good and so was the itinerary. The temple visit was good despite the hawkers nagging tourists to buy their wares. The boat ride was serene, the cycling tour great.. even the rain couldn't play spoil sport to our spirits. The tour guide was good. There were enough stops for restroom breaks. They cater to vegetarian folks as well. Highly recommend!
  • PARTHA 24 Feb 2019
    Tour was excellent. Guide knowledgeable but rushed for no reason. Need to interact better with the group. TAM COC boat ride was excellent and rower commandable, always tip them.
  • Gavin 20 Mar 2019
    the guide and driver were both excellent but there is a stop both ways at an overpriced shop to use the toilet, this takes 1 hour in total of your trip and is not shown on the itinerary. A much shorter stop is preferred. The bikes are rubbish and poorly maintained but sufficed as just a flat straight road. there is presure to tip the boat man and they are ungrateful if you don't give them 50k. there should be a cheaper option to not include lunch as we don't eat buffet food at all so wasted money for us. it didn't look great either.
  • Yan Pin 11 Mar 2019
