A fantastic experience especially the Tam Coc river, what a natural experience, the most powerful experience in Northern Vietnam. (More beautiful than Ha Long) has not been to SaPa! The bike ride was the least enjoyable, as my bike barely worked and there were only rice fields in central Ninh Bình.

Brilliant full-day trip! The panoramic view of Tam Coc from the Mua Caves was breathtaking. However, the steep hike up the steps to reach the summit isn't for the fainthearted! The highlight of the day was the Ngo Dong river boat ride. It was a beautiful, five-star experience.

A completely fantastic experience. Very well organized and a super good guide. It was a very beautiful trip and we saw a lot of interesting places. So that trip can definitely be recommended.

The tour guide changed our itinerary order so we could visit tam coc & Mua cave due to convid19 as area was closing at lunch time. It was a fantastic choice and thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

I enjoyed the contents of the tour, but I had some really good memories because of the interaction with other tourists.
