” Had a really fun day with our guide Thi which made a perfect day trip from Hanoi. The area was really beautiful and the scenery is totally unique. Thi was really friendly and couldn’t have been more enthusiastic and informative, would definitely recommend.” – Source on Tripadvisor.com
” We had a great time at Tam Coc with our guide, Tom. Tom was very knowledgeable of the history and the details surrounding Tam Coc and Vietnamese culture. She was very patient and took care of our needs. Apparently, the company did not forward the details of the requests we sent via email to Tom, but she was still able to accommodate them and makenthe last-minute adjustments. We took the boat ride firstbto avoid the volume of people in the afternoon, then 3 of our friends rode the bike to Bich Dong while 2 rode the van, then finally we went up the Lying Dragon Mountain which was tiring but worth the views from the top! “
” What a fantastic tour!! Thi was a brilliant guide, gave us lots of history on Vietnam. The walk to Mua Cave was very hard in the heat but the views at the top are stunning! Thi also helped me up and down as the heat affected me. He’s so kind.
The lunch was delicious in a beautiful setting.
The boat ride on the river was very picturesque and relaxing.
Just be aware there are people in boats half way through who are trying to get you to buy stuff!
I really enjoyed cycling through the rice fields and seeing the cows!
Overall it was a very memorable experience and hugely recommend going!! ”
” Our guide, Thao, was fantastic and the tour was well worth it. We loved the serenity of the boat trip through the caves. No motors on the boats….just the sound of water lapping against the boat. I definitely recommend this trip. Thank you Thao for your enthusiasm, care and knowledge. ”
” This tour was excellent from beginning to end. Mr Linh (Kevin) was such a wonderful guide. He was so friendly, thoughtful, made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the experience. Transfer to and from was excellent as well, timely and very comfortable bus. Highly recommend! “
” Pick up was 8am in central Hanoi with a couple of hours drive to the first site with a short refreshment stop en route. Hoa Lu was the historical part of the tour. Interesting, small but overshadowed by the rest of the day. Mua Cave is really a hilltop of 500 or so steps. Hard work at times but well worth it to look out over the karst scenery. There is a dragon perched on top of the hill though climbing round the jagged rocks for a good photo angle was a bit perilous. Tam Coc followed. A quiet delightful boat ride paddled by one of the local ladies takes you through more great karst scenery with the only sounds from frogs and birds. The route takes you though three cave tunnels before returning the same way. The boat person was very forthright in asking for a tip and stopped mid stream just to force her message. Quite unnecessary. The last part of the day was a short circular bike ride past the rice fields and through a small village to a welcome drink and fresh fruit. The guide was excellent, clear and proactive.”
” Full day of activities & lots of choice for lunch. Great view from the dragon mountain and lovely one hour boat ride – Thi was very informative and enthusiastic. Highly recommend. ” Source from Tripadvisor.com
” I went to the Halongbay Cruise a few days before my day trip to Trang An, Mua Cave, Hoa Lu, and I am still amazed at the beauty of this place. We have an excellent tour guide that gave us plenty of info on Vietnam and kept us well entertain throughout the trip. The hike up Mua Cave was tough during the hot weather but doable, and the view was very much worth it. Although the food quality was a bit disappointing but overall the trip was excellent ” – Source from Tripadvisor.com
