Nice guide and a lovely tour in the Ninh Binh area. We stopped by a local family for lunch, It was great.
I'd love to have a bigger and faster bike tour.

Wonderful way to see the countryside, Tam Coc and the limestone karsts! Our guide was delightful and shared many interesting facts about his country and region. Bikes were in good condition and the lunch was overwhelming! Take an appetite! Also take bottled water with you! not many vendors there in November.

Really enjoyed this trip, about an hour on a comfortable pushbike and and hour on a row boat through some stunning landscapes. Guide was very helpful and informative.

A great day from start to finish .. our wonderful friendly and funny guide Dong called me the night before to let me know what time he would be picking me up in the morning. His happy face greeted me as I came down the stairs and the smiles and laughter continued through the day as we rode, walked, ate, experienced and floated our way around some of the most beautiful scenery I have seen in Vietnam. No wonder Tam Coc is called Halong Bay on land .. serenely stunning. A great day with a fab guide in a beautiful part of Vietnam.

I chose this instead of a one-day Halong Bay tour, mostly to avoid the 2x4 hour bus rides. I'm so glad I did! The bike ride was incredibly scenic (some gravel roads so be sure you know what you're doing!), the home-cooked lunch was delicious, and the boat ride was spectacular! Small group perfect.

One of the best experiences during our stay in Hanoi. Our guide Tom was great, informative, friendly and helpful. The whole experience was incredible, though the bike part was a bit rocky and tough. Would repeat it anytime !

Thrilling with many silent cave (touch stalactite) and breath taking silent lake surface and amazing view from boat. During bike activity able to meet wild Goat. Tour guide Tom is friendly,professional .

Excellent day out with a highly knowledgeable guide. As there were only two of us we went in a car and the driver was smooth and unhurried and the guide was very informative. Enjoyed the visit to the temple in the ancient capital and the relaxed bike ride. Plenty of chance to stop and take pictures. The ride along the river was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

I took this tour on 1st of January. I absolutely loved it. The guide was always so kind and really looking after us the best he could, and the tour has a bit of everything: sightseeing, bike, boat! The best

Really nice trip. The most enjoyable parts were the boat ride and the first part of biking.

This was a very small group with a fantastic guide and driver. It is possible to do this tour and not have to participate in the bike ride. Instead I wandered around the small town and explored the back streets and alleys however my travel partner really enjoyed the bike ride and believes it was a highlight. There are quite a few tourists riding on the small boats on the river but this did not impact on our enjoyment. Just be prepared for the hard sell for souvenirs and demands for extra money by the person piloting the little boat and stick to your plan (either buy and pay up because it is worth it or politely refuse). Our guide was very helpful with advice in managing these demands. Consider it all part of the fun of travelling. This is a beautiful part of Vietnam.

We had a day of rain, but it only added to the experience that is Vietnam. We loved the cycle as we got the chance to see the rural side of Vietnam, great to get out of the busy city.

Excellent... exactly as advertised, a bit hot (but expected this time of year), plenty of stops if/when needed, definitely got to "see" another side of Hanoi. Highly recommend a bike tour!

Loved the experience of our day tour into the countryside. Saw a good slice of varied picturesque sights which we would not have had the opportunity to see otherwise. The bike ride was fantastic through back streets of small villages, beside rice paddies and Sandstone casts.

Wonderful experience. We wished it would have lasted longer. The countryside was incredibly beautiful. The guide was fluent in English and explained as we cycled. The boating trip was more than we thought it would be. This excursion exceeded our expectations.

This was one of the best tours we took. We had a great guide who took us biking on a beautiful area and then we took a nice trip on a row boat. Amazing experience and great photo opportunities.

A really enjoyable day. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Boar ride in the caves was awesome. The lunch that was arranged in the home of the villagers was scrumptious and they welcomed us with open arms. All-in-all an excellent package. The only word of caution is to be mindful of the weather as it could get a bit uncomfortable during the rainy season. Would definitely recommend!

I quite enjoyed this trip even though my phone got water damage and died... but that's not the tour's fault! My favorite part was the bike ride. You got to get some exercise and see the country side. The bikes are quite old though, and definitely not made for the uneven terrain we rode through. It was still fun. The bike ride was over an hour long, so be prepared to sweat! It was followed by a buffet lunch... not the best food but they have a lot of options to cover vegetarians and stuff. It was raining when we go to the boat ride so it was a little uncomfortable wearing the plastic ponchos while sitting in a tiny boat. But the scenery was great. And I was surprised to see that we were at the site where they filmed Kong: Skull Island. I had just watched the movie so it was really cool. Make sure you tip the boat rowers, it's hard work! I liked this tour better than the one we did at Halong Bay.

Very good tour and guide. Only minor point is that some of the cycle is along the road to complete a loop but otherwise is a good day overall.

A great trip. Our guide, Lucky, was knowledgable and passionate, eager to answer any question we had. The small group idea is a great one. Highly recommended.

Nice tour if you want to get away from Hanoi and the hustle and bustle but be prepared for a long drive 2.5 hrs to get to old capital city and of course temples are offered. We went to one in the old capital.
Nice countryside and guide very knowledgeable and helpful. Cycle ride gentle but fine for us.
Lunch good.
Afternoon boat ride an experience very busy.
Seriously though we enjoyed the day.
