This was one of my most memorable traveling experiences to date. I loved Ninh Binh and our tour guide, Thuy! She was so lovely and gave us a very personal experience of Vietnam. I cannot say enough great things. Thank you.

This should be a required tour if you are ever in the Hanoi area. The river scenery was world class. The Hoa Lu Temples were the best temple tour we experienced in Vietnam thus far. Our guide was absolutely outstanding. Even though we took this tour in January and the rice fields were brown and dry, the mountain scenery along the river trip was breathtaking. Highly recommend.

We took a private tour to Ninh Binh from Hanoi in April 2017. Our tour guide was Thai. The day was one of the most enjoyable things we did in Hanoi. Thai was a wonderful guide with great local knowledge and a wonderful sense of humour. We went for a bike ride through local villages, enjoyed a local lunch and a fabulous trip down the Ngo Dong River to the limestone caves. The final adventure for the day was a visit to Hoa Lu's royal palace. We were picked up and dropped off at our Hotel by our very competent driver. It was a truly memorable day!!

Did this tour in Nov of 2016 and loved it. The guide and driver were marvelous. Very informative and accomadating. Lots of great information about the area that we toured. We got to see a lot of the area and really experience the life and culture of this part of Vietnam. For a day tour we got a lot done. Loved the bike ride through the rice fields and the lazy sail down the river. Bought the hat to get into the experience more. Also found the tour of the art gallery at the end in Hanoi and wonderful final touch to the tour. Could not resist buying some true Vietnamese artwork. Would highly recommend the tour and the tour company!!! I give it a 5.

Ninh binh and the temples were a great exprience. Jackie our tourguide gave us a lot of insight on the interesting history of the temples and the vietnamese culture. The lovely landscape of ninh binh is breathtaking, best viewed on the short tour with the bicycles.
