It was a great day touring the major sites. Our guide was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Our 6 year old also loved it.
Great day in Hanoi countryside

Great day trip in a very comfortable bus. Our guide 'Stan' was very good, spoke good English, and gave us lots of info along the way. Lunch was a buffet and included lots of different good - also good! A great day, if only the weather had cooperated!
Beautiful country

Air conditioned transports and prearranged meals are standard for group tours - even small group tours like this one. What made this tour great we’re the extras: the information about who to tip and how much, about what not to buy from whom, and the overall efficiency and professionalism that our guide Alex displayed on this trip.

The scenery was simply breathtaking. We chose this over Halong Bay and I don’t regret it one bit! The drive was not as long and the rock formations were similar. The Sampan ride through Tam Coc was just amazing!

Mua Caves ... well, it’s more like a mountain, actually! Climb to the top and you are rewarded with a wonderful view of Ninh Binh province! It’s quite a climb, but I’m 46 years old and the only shape I’m in is “round” and I made it! Take your time, but realize there isn’t much in the way of handrails and sometimes the thing between you and a 1500’ drop is just your balance!

This trip was a full day and it was busy, so be prepared!
