  • As a solo traveler, can I join a group tour?

    Of course, yes. You are welcome to join us on this tour. Since this is a group tour, you don’t need to worry about it.

  • Will I get picked up from our hotel?

    Definitely! Our guide will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter. However, if you are staying outside the Old Quarter, you should contact the tour operator to determine the most suitable meeting point

  • Can I join this tour if I don't know how to cycle? And what can I do while the others go cycling?

    Don’t worry. You can take this tour even if you don’t want to go cycling. While the others are engaged in this activity, you could opt to rest at the restaurant or go for a walk and shoot pictures. Then, continue your trip with the next destination once they return to the restaurant.

  • Hang Mua is said to have a stunning high mountain from which I can admire one of the most beautiful parts of Tam Coc, isn't it?

    That’s correct. The most beautiful aspect of Tam Coc and the serene village landscape can be seen from the summit of Hang Mua. Furthermore, Hang Mua’s summit is also a great location for photographing, making your climbing effort worthy.

  • Can I still take this tour if I don’t want to climb?

    You can still participate in the tour as normal. Nonetheless, we recommend that you join the trip with the two destinations listed below to meet your needs:

  • While sitting on a boat tour, do I need to wear a life jacket?

    Definitely, yes. Do it to ensure safety for yourselves.

  • Can I row the boat by myself?

    Of course not. You simply sit on the boat for the whole tour to take in the majestic scenery while the ferryman is in charge of securely rowing the boat. Nonetheless, each boat is equipped with a few little oars so that anyone who wants to attempt rowing a boat can do so.

  • Is it true that some ferrymen in Tam Coc frequently request tips?

    It’s true in some cases, but not in all. Although giving them a tip is not required, it would be appreciated if everyone did so after the boat tour. All of the ferrymen are farmers who are dedicated to work, but their incomes are unstable because they depend on the tourism season. Therefore, after the boat tour, giving them a small tip (1-2 USD) if you are pleased with the trip also makes them happy.

  • Can we join the group tour if we travel with young children?

    Yes, of course. The group tour is appropriate for all ages. You can reserve an additional seat for your children’s comfort while moving. Moreover, we also offer a Ninh Binh private tour for those who want to spend private time together, customize your tour according to your preferences, and are able to afford a higher tour price.

      That’s amazing trip with excellent tour guide- Hien who connected & controlled other fellows from over the world to a family. Bai Dinh pagoda is the biggest pagoda we’ve visited & very well worth a center of Buddhism. The boat trip in Trang An was relaxed & exciting with friendly old man who controlled the sampan boat. And the last top – Mua cave mountain with brilliant views from the top. It’s very well organized & worth every penny!
