USD 39.00
2 travellers
Visit Hoa Lu and Tam Coc and learn more about the northern Vietnamese countryside, history, and culture on a full-day tour. Hoa Lu is an ancient capital, and Tam Coc, which means “3 caves,” features karst formations and caves you’ll explore by boat.
  • Visit two key components of the Trang An UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Explore the 1,000-year-old temples of Hoa Lu, Vietnam’s ancient capital
  • Pedal through rural villages and ride a sampan boat through Tam Coc caves
  • Relax with a Vietnamese buffet lunch and hotel pickup and drop-off
What to Expect
Your guide will collect you from your hotel or guesthouse in Hanoi’s Old Quarter for the climate-controlled journey to Ninh Binh and Hoa Lu, Vietnam’s ancient capital. Discover two of the most classic temples, King Dinh and King Le, before you set off for Tam Coc. Enjoy a buffet lunch by the waterfront amid the UNESCO-listed landscapes before you board your sampan boat to ride the river through karst and caves. After a short break at the wharf, hop aboard a bike for a leisurely cycle trip through some of Ninh Binh’s charming villages, before your shuttle drops you back to your accommodation.
