Great experience overall. Booking was quick and responsive, and driver arrived early to pick us up. No time wasted to pick up other group travellers.

Our local guide Thao, was excellent and took good care of us. She communicated well in english and shared with us local tibits and history info.

Highly recommended day trip.

Thank Daniel L

We booked a day tour for Hoa Lu and Trang An with buffet lunch included for my wife and myself for a Saturday via Viator.

The programme seemed to be good for us from what was advertised as my wife wasnt confident in cycling and we did not want to go to Bai Dinh (which was the popular itinerary). It was a 10-20 SGD premium for this package from the usual Bai Dinh and Trang An tour.

Trang An was a beautiful place - the boat ride, the pit stop halfway along the boat ride and the system of river caves was stunning and beautiful. Hoa Lu offered us a glimpse into the dynastic era of Vietnam under the Dinh and Le kings. The buffet lunch was surprisingly sumptuous with a good variety of western and Vietnam cuisine.

However, the logistical arrangement is a nightmare. Firstly, even after booking and receiving our booking confirmation, we had to email the company before we know that we have to proceed to the tour agency as hotel pickup wasnt available.

When we finally got on the bus, it was a cramped bus with hardly any leg room and poor airconditioning. Everyone was sweating in the sweltering summer heat and the tour guide told us that the air conditioning of the bus didnt work at the strongest. What made us disappointed was that the Hoa Lu Trang An tour from Hanoi Explore Travel was outsourced to Daily Vietnam Tours. To add on to the surprise, we were on a “special tour package” so we will be transferred to another tour group taking the Hoa Lu - Tam Coc tour and then transferred back to the Bai Dinh Trang An tour group again. And by the way.... you will have to wait 1 hour to rejoin the Trang An leg - absolute waste of time. The cycling around the Trang An landscape wasn’t at all exciting so don’t expect much.

If you’re looking to explore Hoa Lu and Trang An and want the kind of comfort for your legs, this might not be a good option. If you do go with this, just make sure u be proactive and contact Hanoi Explore Travel beforehand and be prepared to move about and make sure u know who ur tour leader is at each point

Linh is an excellent tour guide. We tried different variety of vietnamese food - from rice rolls to egg coffee. The tour was flexible and Linh was kind enough not to let me finish all the food since I was already full. I also had a nice exchange of cultural information with Linh. Would definitely recommend this tour.
