What to expect
Your guide will meet you at 8:30am to drive about 100 kilometers south to Hoa Lu the ancient capital of the Dinh and Le dynasties which date back to the 11th century. Little of the capital remains but fortunately some of its ruins and tombs have survived for a millennium. The scenery is spectacular and more than make up for the lack of ruins. Those who want to discover the local countryside can enjoy a 40 minute cycle ride along the country lanes surrounded by beautiful scenery and lush paddy fields. We finish the ride at Tam Coc in time for a buffet lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch you will continue to nearby Tam Coc or Three Caves in Vietnamese, an area of natural beauty that is often referred to as "Halong Bay on land". Board a small boat and meander lazily down the river to the ancient caves. See limestone karsts jetting skywards out of electric green rice paddies - you won’t be able to stop taking photos! Returning back to the pier your vehicle will be waiting to take you back to Hanoi arriving late afternoon.

Great tour, outstanding tour guide
Dec 2019 • Family
The organisors have packed so much into this tour you wont be twiddling your thumbs for a minute and we loved all of it. Mua Cave was a highlight and the bicycle ride. Lynch was delicious and well catered for vegetarian. Our tour guide was Phong and he was outstanding, organised, detailed, Enthusiastic, funny and well versed in history. On his oWn he looks after us and never stopped smiling for almost 12 hours. He went out of his way to commUnicate with non english speakers and his english was amazing. He made this tour evEn more spectacular, thanks Phong.

A must do for nature lovers
Aug 2019
We were picked up from Old Quarter in a good vehicle. Went to Hoa lu, the ancient capital. Nice historic place. Enjoyed it even though the climate was super hot. A sumptuous buffet lunch made as filled and relaxed. We headed to Tam Coc for a 90 minute boat ride through a pristine river. Passed under three caves. A wonderful experience! Finished the tour with a 5km cycling through the village. Special thanks to our tour guide Key.

Wonderfully places - as beautiful as on pictures
Aug 2019 • Family
We are French and we booked this tour. The bus trip is around 2,5 hours. We were pick up at 8am in our hotel in old quarter and we had a lunch around 12:30 am. We had again a short 20 mn trip and arrived to the boat station.
We took a tiny boat plus rawer for a wonderful cruise. The landscape (mostly mountains) were so green and the place so quit even if there were many little boats. I took some wonderful pictures.
Right after, we took a bike for a 40mn tour on the little roads of the village. Note : some people left our tour and overnight inside this village. This is maybe a good idea.
So, we enjoyed this tour and we really recommend it.

Absolutely Amazing !
The tour up the River Tam Coc in a rowing boat with it‘s 3 caves is an experience of absolute beauty ! You take about 2 hours on the slowly moving rowing boat and the landscapes that this tour offers are amazing! 2 hours drive up from Hanoi and 2 additionnal hours for returning to Hanoi are FULLY justified by the 2 hours that you spend on the Tam Coc River (= „the river of the three caves“). The caves are, in fact, nothing leaving you wordless - but interestingly cut up and entertain during that rowing boat trip through amazing natural beauty. Don‘t forget to tipp the people who are rowing the boats - it must be a hard job...! Back to the departing point of the boats, numerous (good quality and cheap) restaurants give you the possibility to regain forces for the trip back to Hanoi... In our opinion, Tam Coc River counted among the most appreciated highlights (with SO MANY OTHERS) in Vietnam !
