We absolutely loved this tour, as it really had a bit of everything.

The views from the top of the peak were well worth the climb, the boat ride was fun if touristy, and it was great to be able to see some of the much quieter local areas on the motorbike tour, which we would never have seen otherwise. The scenery was beautiful and worth visiting for alone, and the tour felt very well organised and safe.

Tommy was very informative, and made it feel more like we were being shown around by a friend, than on an organised tour. We also got the chance to stop by his lovely coffee shop afterwards, which is beautifully decorated with recycled materials and well worth a visit. Make sure to try the Baileys egg coffee!

We would 100% recommended doing this tour if you get the chance, and we will definitely be back for more the next time we’re in Hanoi!

This is a really great and comprehensive tour. Everything was planned very smoothly and we felt well taken care of by our tour guide, Lauren. She even contacted us a day before the tour to confirm all the pickup details. Lauren speaks English well and is very knowledgeable with what is going on around the area. It was also a nice treat that she packed some yummy snacks for us :)

With regards to the tour, the landscapes are breathless, the food was very tasty, and the diverse activities will lead to a fun day, gorgeous pictures, and an amazing experience in Vietnam.

Highly recommended.

Pro tip: It will be a long day so get plenty of sleep the night before!

Our guide, Lauren, made this tour 100 times better! She was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and the local culture. She also happily took over 100 photos of our group while smiling and having fun with us all day! We started the day off with a hike, then went on a motorbike tour around the city, and ended the day with a 2 hour boat ride through caves...it was fantastic and worth every penny!

Our guide, Lauren, was great!!.Her English is perfect so that make it easier on us. Took us to great places for food, a motorcycle ride around Ninh Bin town, and end up with a 2 hour boat ride to visit several temples. She was always making sure we had a great and enjoyable time. Kudos for Lauren!!! 😉👍🤗

Our guide Alex took us on a very nice tour around Ninh Binh. I really enjoyed the scenery and thanks to Alex we experienced the diversity of Ninh Binh on the water and on the scooters. Alex was very informative and attentive, and no question was not answered. Would totally recommend this tour and Alex.

This was our 2nd tour in 2 days with this company & once again it did not disappoint. A full day filled with beautiful scenery and a little adventure - a short hike (500 steep steps) up to a little temple with amazing views of Ninh Binh, an unforgettable boat trip through limestone cliffs & caves, a motorbike ride through scenic country side & green rice fields - if you’re brave enough you can choose to ride yourself! You will not go hungry or thirsty either. This trip was made by our happy, patient & extremely knowledgeable guide Alex (Australian tour guides could learn a lot from Alex). His energy & beautiful manner made this long day trip a joy!!

This is a great trip and a must do. You get to visit the beautiful Ninh Binh countryside, motorbike through rice fields and villages, spend an hour on the water navigating through caves and have an authentic lunch you won’t be able to finish. It’s quite a long day but our guide Alex was incredibly knowledgeable, a pleasure to be around and his enthusiasm was infectious. He made the trip all that much better. I highly recommend

So I didn't know a lot about Ninh Binh before visiting Vietnam, but man it is beautiful! This day trip from Hanoi was full on - including a climb up some steps to breath taking views from a mountain top, a serene boat ride paddled by a local using his feet!, delicious Vietnamese food for lunch, and a moto tour of the countryside. Our guide, Alex, was great!! He was very attentive to our needs, explained what was happening each step of the way, shared personal stories so we could get a better understanding of the locals way of life, and was super friendly. If you have the time, I would definitely recommend this day trip from Hanoi.

Great tour for getting out of the city and seeing all that Ninh Binh has to offer! Our tour guide, Alex was amazing and took us all over the city explaining everything along the way. Be prepared for a 12+ hour tour but it is worth it. Glad I booked it with them!
