In my humble opinion this is a better attraction than a visit to Ha Long Bay. It might sound blasphemous but I find the Tam Coc river ride more charming. Yes, Hoa Lu is a... read more

The beauty of Tam Coc was described by many reviewers - totally ok with them. You probably stop at the not so spectacular 2 temple complex of Hoa Lu, have a reasonable lunch in a tourist restaurant afterwards and then proceed to Tam Coc: Your tour probably includes the 90 min boat trip. When on the boat avoid looking at... More

In my humble opinion this is a better attraction than a visit to Ha Long Bay. It might sound blasphemous but I find the Tam Coc river ride more charming. Yes, Hoa Lu is a history lesson and is not that interesting to me but when paired with a visit to Tam Coc, then it's worth both the cost and... More

Make sure to book a day trip to Hoa lu - Tam Coc when in Hanoi. Usually you get a delicious buffet lunch at a local restaurant and then you´re given bicycles in Tam Coc village. The village is very small, full of locals who invited us for lunch in their home with huge smiles :) After we got a... More

My Hubby and I took this tour through Classy Travel. Was so much more than we expected. Our tour Guide " Tuk" was great! Loved the bike ride on a dirt path along some traditional areas... saw a woman selling her butchered pig on the side of the road. The 2.5 hrs spent on the river floating along was breathtaking....

We booked this trip from Viator. It was around $35 per person. Then they charged us an extra $4 per person to pick us up from our hotel as we were not staying in the Old Quarter. The down side to this was we spent almost an hour driving around the Old Quarter on a bus picking up all the... More

I booked this tour through Sinh Cafe Tourist along Hang Trong St., Hoan Kiem. I chose the De Luxe option for US$ 31 which included a ride in a coaster and buffet lunch with a group of 15 people. Our tour guide, Duc, spoke English well. It's a 2.5-hour ride from the city. First stop was the King Dinh Temple... More

A tour of the historic capital of Vietnam followed by long boat trip, hard seats and extremely fit ladies doing the rowing, followed by cycle ride to ease the muscles.A worthwhile experience

Toured the Hoa Lu ancient palace, which was a good cultural experience to learn about the ancient history of Vietnam. Followed by buffet lunch at the restaurant, which was quite sumptuous, by Vietnam standard. We enjoyed the boat ride at Tam Coc. It was very scenic. There was this photo vendor who followed us around, offering to take photos at... More

We booked our tour through our hotel. It's always good to learn the history of the place you're visiting which the tour of Hoa Lu provided. Toilets are generally clean and the sitting variety (very important!) Vendors here were are not very pushy but maybe that's because our tour guide was with us and told them to leave us alone....
