This full-day Tam Coc tour takes in the area’s top sights and experiences, giving you a great introduction to beautiful Ninh Binh.

Before lunch, swap your boat for a bicycle and take a ride through the charming village and farmland surrounding Tam Coc.

After a buffet lunch of local specialities, transfer to Hoa Lu ancient capital of Viet Nam. Visit the 10th century Ding king temple and Le king temple, finding out the heroic histories of these two kings during the Chinese Wars.

Over the past 1,5 years I have spent a couple of months in Hanoi and have done a few trips through Lily. Each time I came back, she knows who I am and enthusiastically waves at me. She is incredibly kind and provides excellent services… The trips I organized through her were unforgettable and well organized. I am looking forward to my next trip to Hanoi and to stay at her new hostel! Daisy D
