What to Expect

After early morning pickup in Hanoi, head to Ninh Binh province, a scenic drive that takes about one hour. Start by visiting the ancient capital’s Hoa Lu temples, built for the Dinh and Le dynasties. Then go to Tam Coc wharf where you enjoy a buffet lunch of Vietnamese cuisine. Next, step into your sampan boat and relax as your guide rows you to the caves, a ride of 90 minutes. When you return to the dock, take a short break before hopping on the provided bicycle for a leisurely 45-minute ride through picturesque rural villages to Bich Dong. In the late afternoon, return to the city where your tour ends with drop-off at your accommodation in Hanoi’s Old Quarter.
