It was peaceful North of Viet Nam countryside, the places we visited in Ninh Binh were really a hidden charm land. Our good guide Minh spoke excellent English, he made us understand more than we expected. Local people lifes hard, but we love them very much because they are very friendly and close. Some of the views we saw were stunning, not to mention the history and culture involved. I'd recommend this trip to anyone who are still thinking about choosing it. Lots to do but in a good way, should stay there (homestay is preferable) and spend your time with local people there to learn about their lives. Thanks Minh for a great day, we'll be back!

The best part is the climbing up on Dragon mountain in Mua Cave (you need to add this to your trip). 500 steps to climb on top to see the beautiful view and to walk along the massive dragon built to top of the hill. The bungalow at the bottom was really nice with a small waterfall where you can have a shower. Tam coc boat trip to 3 caves was nice too ...so as the bike tour around Tam coc. I like people there, just recall the good conversation we had. I will recommend this trip to our friends and people love traveling to Vietnam.

We booked this tour from viator and everything was very good. Tour guide and driver picked us from our hotel about 8:00 a.m (after we had breakfast in hotel, that was great arrangement also). Tour guide's name Tien, he's so good with taking utmost care of his guests, he speaks English fluently, and we believe that we will have a good trip. Ninh Binh is wonderful landscape with many things to see, we visited Hoa Lu then moved to Mua cave and saw all the views of Tam Coc. Standing from the peak of this mountain to look around the admiring panorama, that was perfect, we loved it very much. Went to Tam Coc and we had buffet lunch, most of cuisines were vegetable, Pho, rice...all good & tasty. We liked it very much. We had 45 minutes stretching legs and body, then went biking into some villages around Tam Coc, had impressive time to talk to local people with the translation from Tien, they invited us visit their houses, those hosts were very friendly and made us felt warmly welcome. We returned Tam Coc and visited caves on the local boat, it was really relaxing and closed to natural surrounding. Wonderful time in this area and promised to myself that I will return and stay here for a few more nights if I may. Thanks viator, Tien and driver. Will keep in touch and look forward to next visit to Vietnam.

We had a wonderful time on our recent tour to Hoa Lu - Tam Coc - Mua cave. Prompt and efficient pickup in the morning followed by comfortable, safe drive (90mins..?) to our first destination.Despite the downpour...our every comfort was prioritized as Tien produced polythene rainmacs and brollies as we began the amazing river trip... our punt ably and dexterously manoeuvred by our oarsperson with her feet.!! The traditional lunch in a Vietnamese home was beautifully prepared and presented. Next up... a gentle bike ride through paddy fields....a visit to a family ancestor shrine: Tiens explanations of Vietnamese Traditions and Culture always informative and clear: he spoke with depth and passion.... most especially during the afternoon visits to the Pagodas ...the sheer beauty of these locations was nonetheless apparent....despite the teeming rain! On a personal note... the regular availability of rest rooms throughout the day... was an unusual bonus!

Recommended by some friends, we really wanted to book this day trip, booking was simple and the support was good. Ninh Binh is a place where there are many things to explore. We were picked up promptly in the morning and met awesome new friend, a tour guide, Lien. She is funny and light hearted throughout the day. She made the trip a memorable one. We enjoyed and had a relaxing day at the beautiful ancient temples, feasting at Vietnamese traditional buffet, boating along the stunning deep green river and cycling through the rice paddies. We would both recommend this full day trip to anyone looking for a day trip outside of Hanoi. Thanks Lien, We will return and see you soon!
