I really liked this tour. The guide was great. the bus was ok. The sights were great. the river caves were very interesting. I recommend this tour to all visiting Hanoi.
The tour was really well organized. After 2 hours bus tour we arrived at the temples. And then continued to the lunch place and the board trip. The lunch was so so. One reason for only 4 stars. The board trip was great. The bike trip was also great but would be better to stop one or the other time.
Picked up by our guide late. His English was so so. What did I like? Hoa Lu was great and Tam Coc was very interesting indeed. Well worth the trip. But we often had no idea where we were or the names of places we were at. Had to go and find signs.
The drive there and back is long but the scenery was good, however it would have been a lot more productive if we had been given notes about where we were going and what we would see and if the guide would have given some commentary along the way. The biking was very ordinary-the bikes were terrible and the time was only about 20 minutes. The worst part of the trip was the lunch-poor standard and not a good advertisement for Vietnamese cuisine. Unrepresentative swill basically. I can recommend this for the scenery and Tam Coc only. It needs some real work.
