Things To Do

Your Hoa Lu Tam Coc 1 Day Tour starts with a pick-up at your hotel at 8 AM.  Then get a 2-hour drive from Hanoi to Hoa Lu through the lush countryside.

Upon arrival, you will visit Hoa Luthe ancient Capital of Vietnam, and the remaining two temples dedicated to King Dinh & King Le. You will learn more about the history of Vietnam dating back to a thousand years ago. It is also the must-do in Ninh Binh.

After lunch in a local restaurant, proceed to Tam Coc where you continue your trip with a relaxing sampan boat. The 1.5 hour boat ride offers you endless photo opportunities. On the rowing boat trip, you will go through the 3 Tam Coc Caves and pass the rice fields. There you get a chance to take the nice photos of nature and local people working on the riverside. This area used to be the shelter for Vietnamese people and national army in 13th century and during American war.

Take a short break after the boat for a fun cycling adventure for approximately 45 minutes along country lanes to enjoy the beautiful scenery of lush paddy fields and discover the real countryside of Vietnam to the fullest.

Great day away from the bustle of Hanoi

Our family of 4 had an amazing day to the countryside of Ninh Binh, which was very relaxing and interesting. The landscape was awesome, and we did have a fun boat ride as well as a bike ride around Tam Coc. The place is worth being called “Inland Halong Bay”.

Geweldige privédagtour naar Ninh Binh, Vietnam

We hebben een privédagtocht gemaakt naar Tam Coc en Hoa Lu met Jack van Conical Travel. Alles verliep vlot en de dag was echt geweldig. Jack was erg aardig, zorgzaam en zeer goed geïnformeerd. Het landschap was ongelooflijk top van de wereld. En we hadden een zeer goede kans om de omgeving per boot en fiets te verkennen. Heel erg bedankt Jack en Conical Travel voor de fantastische dag.

Full of history and nature

We booked a private tour to visit Ninh Binh with Conical Travel. The trip was well organized with a visit to Hoa Lu ancient citadel and Tam Coc river. All the activities were beyond our expectations. We had a really happy day!

Great trip to explore authentic Ninh Binh

The tour was so great and we could explore all the best of Ninh Binh within 1 day. It also gave us the chance to escape from the bustle of Hanoi city and join the peaceful and beautiful nature in there. Our guide Jack was the best guide ever! Thank you so much!

Can't be better

Words alone are not enough to explain how satisfied we are with our 1 day trip to Hoa Lu Tam Coc. All the hidden features of Ninh were revealed with the help of our knowledgeable guide Ivan, and our super driver Tuan Anh. We had an amazing day and unforgettable experiences with you!

Worth “Inland Halong Bay”

The landscape in Ninh Binh was so breathtaking and it well deserves the nickname “Inland Halong Bay”. What we liked most about the trip was the fun boat ride at Tam Coc river. But we loved every moment of the day!

Imprescindible para las amantes de la naturaleza.

El recorrido fue increíble y lleno de naturaleza y paisaje. Tuvimos la sensación de escapar en el campo que no está lejos de Hanoi. Recomiendo encarecidamente el viaje a cualquier amante de la naturaleza.

Organized by Conical Travel. We went as a group of friends of 12 people. The trip was overall beyonds our expectations. Our guide Jack was super with his knowledge and sense of humour. He spoke non-stop on the way to let us know more about Vietnam and Ninh Binh. It is worth it!

Awesome day out!!!

Got to Ninh Binh after a 2-hour drive from Hanoi. Not too far but we had a really relaxing day out of the city. We visited temple, got a boat ride and cycling. We took a lot of great photos of the breath-taking landscape in Ninh Binh with limestone mountains, rivers, paddy fields…etc. Such a day full of amazement and excitement!!!

Wonderful full-day trip to Hoa Lu Tam Coc with Conical Travel. Everything was absolutely beyond our expectations.

It would be a pity for us if we hadn’t done the trip to Ninh Binh. The place was very amazing and top of the world. Our guide Jack was the best who introduced us about Ninh Binh in detail, and took us to a very good local restaurant. We had a chance to try goat meat which is a specialty of Ninh Binh – super delicious!

Passeio de luxo para Hoa Lu Tam Coc 1 dia

Christian Pau

¡Una excelente manera de pasar el día!

¡Qué gran recorrido! ¡Tantos lugares increíbles para visitar y experiencias que fueron muy memorables!

One of the highlights of our Vietnam trip

Our Ninh Binh full-day private tour was one of the best highlights of Vietnam. The destination is well worth being called “Inland Halong Bay”. Actually, we could learn more about the history of Vietnam on this trip and did more interesting activities than visiting Halong Bay. Highly recommend the trip.
