  • 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.

    An excellent service by our friendly local tour guide Thomas Lee, and very helpful too, especially up the Mua Mountain to see the fantastic view of the Trang An valley, brought us to a local restaurant for tasty Vietnamese food (goat meat) before river cave tour. Lee service was very good and I would truly recommend Nanoi Explore Travel to all visiting Hanoi.

      Great Tour with perfect landscape!

      This was an incredible day trip with a safe driver and very happy and accomodating tour guide, his name was Happy! My husband and I had a fantastic day, it did not feel too long even though it was, we were too busy learning and having the best time. Highly recommend using this company! It turned out to be the best tour we did in Vietnam 🙂 Also price of tour is well justified.
      Would recommend everbody

      100% recommended !

      Great tour, despite the sweltering heat! Knowledgeable, enthusiastic tour guide (Mr Trung) introduced us to some stunning sights. Lunch was a very large spread of options, in a dining hall shared with other tour groups. The 500 steps at the end of the tour are well worth the effort for the views!
      100% recommended.

      Great day trip from Hanoi !

      Very enjoyable day trip from Hanoi to Ninh Binh. Transfer pick up was slightly delayed but the journey was comfortable and our guide Tommy was enthusiastic and happy to answer any questions. Highlights included the bike ride which took in some lovely scenery and climb at the last stop which had a fantastic view (although was quite steep!). The best part of the day however was the boat ride. Although filled with many tourists, the scenery was amazing and so peaceful. Overall, a good day out and would recommend as a day trip.

      Thao was the best guide! Tour Hoa Lu - Trang An boat - Mua cave

      My friend and I came to escape the hustle and bustle of Hanoi and were not disappointed. Thao was the best guide. We even got to experience a home cooked meal with her family and it was one of the best meals I had in Vietnam! The boat ride was great and she goes out of her to way to make you feel comfortable. If you’re over the traffic in Hanoi, I highly recommend heading to Ninh Binh and getting Thao as your guide!

      Exceptional Trip!

      Booked my tour via Hanoi explore travel and it was a pleasant experience. Both the driver and the local guide (Thao) were very helpful and friendly! The landscapes in Trang An was amazing and Thao provided us with good explanation of the various sceneries.

      Very good value for money!

      We enjoyed our trip a lot! The group was fairly small and the bus luxurious. Tommy’s English is pretty good and he was extremely friendly. The scenery was stunning even though we got rained on a bit. I would definitely do this tour again.

      So fun -- our guide, Phong, was great!

      Loved this day trip so much! Our guide, Phong, was exceptional — his English was great, his knowledge of Hanoi / Ninh Binh was comprehensive, and he was fun and caring.
      As for the sites — the boat ride through Trang An was relaxing and beautiful. Also loved the views from the top of Mua Cave. The bike ride wasn’t anything special, but it was nice to ride around the flat roads. As for the lunch — it also wasn’t that great so load up on breakfast before you go.
      Overall, an amazing experience and would definitely recommend this tour (especially Phong as your guide)!

      An amazing guide + Great Trang An Mua Cave Tour!

      Wow! What a great day with Long as our guide – he made us laugh and showed us so many amazing things! I completely recommend him and the tour. A long day but a great day seeing some stunning scenery and meeting some great people. The guide looked after everyone so kindly and our driver Mr Thang was very careful and safe.

      Great Trip !!!

      We enjoyed our day trip with Thanh and the rest of the group. We were picked up early from our hotel and had a short stop after about 1h30 min of driving, before the adventure begun. Our first visit was at Moa Cave. The view from the top of the mountain is breathtaking and we were very lucky that it was not very clouded. Climbing the 500 stairs is totally worth it. We also saw some goats climbing on the mountains. The second stop was at a restaurant where we started cycling for about 45 minutes(cycling is optional). After this we had lunch (not bad, not very good, it was ok overall). Next stop was at Trang An boat pier where we boarded a small boat for an 1h:30min trip along the river, visiting 4 interesting caves(the largest one was 300 m long) and 3 pagodas. At a point, we also started rowing along with the vietnamese lady. The views were again amazing. Last stop – Hoa Lu, where Tommy explained us the history of the place in his very unique style.
      I totally recommend this trip. Having Tommy as a guide definitely makes this already great trip even better.
