Excellent trip would definitely book with you again. Pick up on time, vehicle clean, guide friendly and knowledgeable and everything described as iteniary. Great day of our holiday.
Another highlight of our trip! The driver and guide are prompt in collecting all the tourists from their hotels and the guide in particular was very informative and friendly. We travelled in a large group but it was a comfortable though long ride from Hanoi. The landscape along the way and ruins in Hoa Lu are truly beautiful. The buffet lunch at the restaurant in Tam Coc is lovely, and a nice break from being on the bus. It was followed by a 90 minute little canoe ride along the river through a series of caves - honestly one of the most picturesque and unique landscapes we've ever seen! Be prepared for a group of women selling drinks and snacks in the river who are linked to the drivers - you will most likely be pressured into purchasing something not for yourself but for your boat paddler! They will also ask for a tip upon arrival back in the bay. From here we were invited to take a self guided bicycle trip through the streets of the city which is a must do! If you are confident enough to veer off the main road you can end up in some beautiful private spots such as cemeteries and rice fields, but even reaching the outskirts of the city from the main road will bring you to some lovely sites. Definitely highly recommend this tour for some cultural experiences and amazing landscapes!
I had a thoroughly enjoyable day both visiting Vietnam,s first capital and during the boat trip in the afternoon. Travel in the bus was comfortable, lunch was enjoyable and the guides were informative. In my opinion the itinerary was well suited to the locations visited and the travel time to and from.
Really good, informative guide, friendly and helpful.
Enjoyed it immensely. Highly recommended.
