On Tripadvisor, Hoa Lu Tam Coc Mua Cave Tour have received over 1000 reviews “Excellent”  from people all around the world.

Let’s take a look at some of their reviews:

Evenrya from Singapore: Hoa Lu - Tam Coc- Mua Cave Small Group tour 

" We are lucky to have an excellent guide, Thao and good driver! Booking was a breeze and very responsive via whatapp and messenger with all our questions! Peak of Mua Cave has awesome view and the boat trip in Tam Coc was wonderful! Also tried DIY cooking attempt at fried vietnamese spring rolls! Quite a shame that we missed the cycling around paddy field due to the sudden rain! Overall good experience! Highly recommended :) "P/S : Source by Tripadvisor

Hoa lu tam coc mua cave tour


Bernard Lim from Brunei: Mua cave - Trang An - Bai Dinh pagoda

" Booked a private tour to arrange Mua Cave, Trang An and Bai Dinh Pagoda on a day trip from Hanoi.

Lisa was our guide who was very genuine, cheerful, attentive and knowledgeable of those places and even more! Truong was our driver who was excellent. Really skillful and safe driving considering how complicated Vietnam traffic can be.

Besides the main places, they also brought us to a simple cooking class making delicious fried spring rolls, lunch where we tasted the famous mountain goat and also there was a bicycle tour to Bai Dinh which is one of the most picturesque postcard-like scene. Be sure to stop and take a ton of pics!

I believe no trip to Ninh Binh should be without any of the 3 places above. Most group tour only offers 2 of the above. I hence highly recommend this trip, as not only you cover all key areas, you also have the comfort of a private car, and efficient guides to maximize your whole day. 5 stars.

  • 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.

      We booked this tour at short notice and was fortunate to get a place. Were picked up from my hotel promptly at 07.45 am and take us first to Tam Coc area, where we enjoyed relaxing boat trip. Later we went to Pagoda inside the cave, which was special. We had good lunch in local restaurant. After that we go to old capital Hoa Lu. The tour guide was very fluent in English, had knowledge in history and makes us feel very welcome. Definitely coming back!

      Amazing Hoa Lu Tam Coc Boat and Mua Cave Tour

      What an amazing day! Greeted very warmly by Huy at the start who explained what the day entailed. He has amazing enthusiasm and lots of energy that’s infectious which made the day very enjoyable. He clearly loves what he does which makes it very genuine. Our group consisted of Australian Korean, Singaporeans, Vietnamese and Americans. Would highly recommend Tommy’s tour

      Wonderfull Tour in a wonderfull landscape.

      I had Thao as guide. She has been so friendly and profesional. It was one of the most amazing tour I had. Thao know a lot about his job. You can see that she loves what she do and have attention for all details.
      Ninh Bink is the must you have to do in Vietnam. Landscape and view are bluffing.
      I had also a very nice lunch with Thao and a clean place. The food was superb!!
      I highly recommend that tour and Thao as guide.
      Thank you Thao for that amazing, wonderful tour.

      Great tour, would highly recommend, we had such an amazing time. Got to tick off a lot things on my bucket list!

      We had such an amazing time. Overall, I would highly recommend this trip and the tour company. Just a couple of cons I mentioned below so hopefully they can improve!

      1. Tour guide – Our tour guide’s name was Happy – super helpful, knowledgeable, really looked after the group and had such a bubbly personality. We loved chatting with him!
      2. Communication – they send WhatsApp messages the night before your trip informing you of timing. They also message to let you know if they are late, etc
      3. Group size – We were a group of 16 which I think was a good number. I’ve done other tours which had 30 min people and that was just too much.
      4. Limousine bus was comfy enough and had a decent aircon system.
      5. Activities were super fun – cycle through rice fields, riding a bamboo boat through caves and climbing mua cave!
      6. Never asked for a tip! But we gave the tour guide a tip anyway because we just loved his cheerful personality.

      All included wonderful day!

      After being picked up in our hotel, we met our guide; miss Thao. She was really wonderful and pleasant. She took us to a lot of places and made sure we had a great day. We went to the old temple and the new pagode. After that we climbed the high stairs to enjoy the magic view to continue with a 90 minute boot trip. And they’ll finally we had a bike tour to visit the the ancient pagoda’s. All was well organized and the driver and Miss Thao aldus had water for us at hand! A big thank you!

      Amazing Arrangement

      Our guide, Leo was really knowledgeable with history and sharing for our trip in Ninh Bhin. Overall, I would like to thank Cristine for her swift and prompt reply with all the arrangements for my activities in Vietnam from Halong Bay to Ninh Bhin. I contacted her before my trip, and in between to make last minute arrangement including during the independence day period and she replied swiftly and smoothly. Would recommend this travel agency to make any arrangement for your tours in Hanoi!

      Beautiful day in Ninh Binh

      We are just back from a one day tour in Ninh Binh with our guide Tommy.
      The tour was one of the best days of our stay in Vietnam. Booking and communication was easy. Tommy picked us up on time in a comfortable car, we headed to Ninh Binh, we visited the old capital, climbed the mountain for a beautiful view, biked, had lunch, visited 3 pagodas and ended the day with a trip on the river.
      Tommy is knowledgeable about his country and makes sure his guests are well taken care of and have a good time. This day tour is one to put on your list and Tommy is the guide to ask for.
