    The trip itself was 100% worth the money, it was the best day in our Hanoi stay. The landscape was magical; we had the time of our lives rowing down Tam Coc river, sipping on our ice cold beer (bought from one of the boat ladies) on Christmas Day. The variety of food at the buffet was awesome. The only slightly upsetting incident that happened was when our guide (Sonny) came to pick us up at 8:15am, when on the day before, we were told we would be picked up at 8:20 - 8:35. Got scolded for being 'late' but it was alright since it was a misunderstanding. Communication could have been better!

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.

    Great tour guide and nice tour all in all. We learned a lot. It was a little bit unfortunate for me (in Tam Coc) since I don't know how to ride a bike so I was left just walking around. Lunch was good, too. Definitely would recommend this tour.
  • yukari 14 Jan 2019

    Known as the Halong of Inland...It has much more to offer...From savouring the taste of true country side with bicycle ride to experiencing the nature's delight with peaceful boat ride through tam Coc river....it has almost everything to make your trip worth remembering....

    You really have to experience the small door of the Din’s palace, enjoy the foggy Tam Coc, the fresh air come to ya face while cycling at the village and see how the local boating by leg. Is a awesome trip with my funny tour guide- Kimi Nguyễn.
  • Elaine YeaChing 12 Jan 2019
    The overall tour was alright. The Hoa Lu portion seemed really rushed and it didn't feel like we really got to see it. The Tam Coc portion of the trip was much more enjoyable. The bikes could be in better repair. The highlight of the trip was definitely the boat ride.
  • Cheung 10 Jan 2019
    A very pleasant experience. The journey to Ninh Binh took about 2.5h, with a stopover at a production house for a short break ( the toilets there are very clean). Friendly and approachable tour guide. The tour had a good mix of structure and flexibility - those who do not want to cycle have the option of chilling by the river. The boat ride down Tam Coc river was especially peaceful and rejuvenating.
