    The tour was awesome! We went with APT tour company. The tour guide Theng was fluent in english and was very informative! The 726steps to the pagoda is no joke! The steps are not even and the road all the way is rocky as well, so prepare yourself! I went during non peak season,so it was nice as it was not crowded. Apparently on peak season(feb-apr),it can hit up to 60k visitors per day! So plan your trip wel! No regrets taking this tour! Awesome stuff! Thank you APT tour and Klook!

What To Expect

Make your way to one of Vietnam's most significant Buddhist sites on a guided day trip from Hanoi. Start your morning with a convenient pick up at your hotel located within the Old Quarters, or meet up with your guide at the designated point before you're whisked off to the Huong Son District, where you'll officially begin the day's activities. Board a row boat and take a relaxing ride along the Yen Stream, where you'll pass scenic landscapes and enjoy the natural poetic beauty of the surroundings. You'll then arrive at the Thien Tru Harbor, where you'll begin your trek up to the Huong Tich cave and finally arrive at the famed Perfume Pagoda, one of the largest and most unique religious sites in Northern Vietnam. The area is comprised of a complex of pagodas where huge numbers of pilgrims flock to to pray for happiness and prosperity in the coming year. Take in the intricate and natural designs within the caves and snap a few photos to take home before heading back to enjoy a delicious local lunch. As the sun sets, you'll be transported safely back to your hotel.

    It was fun and informative. Perfum Pagoda was really breathtaking if you're into historical places in nature. It was really hot so taking the cable car is recommended.

    Fun and informative tour! The tour bus/car picked all the passengers one by one for every hotel/hostel and the tour guide did their 30 minute spiel. We were also given one bottle of water each. After this, we had a boat ride to a pagoda, and then we had lunch. After this, they asked us if we wanted to ride the cable car. I bought the two-way ticket for VND 160,000 because it was very hot but some people in our group only bought one way. They arrived just a few minutes after we did on the way down so it's not that much of a hike. We then went into the cave and explored for a bit before going back to the restaurant and back to the bus on the rowboat. Hero was an excellent tour guide! Very funny and kind.

    It would be great if visit perfume pagoda during spring. The guide doesn't share much with us information and the lunch was below my expectation. The actual itinerary I had was slightly different. It was really a bad idea to trekking after meal.

    Perfume Pagoda is a amazing place. Specially the cable car ride and the view was spectacular. The operator and quide from APT travels were knowledgable and good. Vehicle was clean and good.
  • Bernadette 23 Jul 2018
    I feel like this tour is not worth $30. We did the boat ride, temple visit, cable car (which we paid ourselves) and another cave temple visit. Lunch was alright, nothing especial. The entire tour was not fun because there were less than 20 tourists in Perfume pagoda and I felt the entire tour was boring and dull. Hoa Lu - Tam Coc tour is much worth it and fun. For the same price, we got a lunch buffet and bycicle tour.

    it was good. There's a lot of climbing stairs but well worth it when you get to the cave.
  • Joy 30 Jun 2018
    We went there on a very hot day, at first we rented a boat without the umbrella so we asked our guide if we can rent a boat which has a cover over our heads which is possible for paying an extra 200k vnd roundtrip for the whole boat. The cable car is 160k vnd roundtrip. The food is ok. The drinks are not included so you have to pay for it. Softdrinks costs 20k vnd.

    what an adventure! good thing that the tour operator offered to upgrade us into a private tour (but had to pay an additional charge). it's an excursion to one of vietnam's proudest pagodas. though if i may suggest, if the tour is private, let us decide the food for lunch. there's already a served set menu but i hoped the group had to select which food to eat. also, the photographers during the boat ride was heckling with us; i hope it would be controlled in the future.
