We book all our excursions in Vietnam with Tonkin Travel(Ha Long Bay, Tam Coc....). Our contact in agency was Phuong and tourist guide Bell. Most professional tourist agency I ever work with. Thank you for everything!!! Sanjin

We were picked up in the small bad suspension bus and headed to the back seat so scott had some sort of leg room side woods, his 6 foot body doesn’t really fit into Asian transport.We headed south of Hanoi seeing the bustling suburbs again showing the massive building in concrete and bamboo scaffolding that is going on everywhere and...

I might even get to the point of saying i preferre it to halong bay! renting a bike and stopping in awe ath this landscape was just priceless... and the boat ride takes you in another calm, slow world. Highly recommend it,travelguides don't give it proper coverage!

In short, better to go to Trang An if you can. It may be a bit more expensive but more beautiful than Tam Coc.

... and rent a scooter for discovering the nice surroundings! It's a beautiful village near Ninh Binh. I was happy to stay there and not in this busy town itself.

Again, another cave system that takes you under limestone karsts through beautiful surrounds but fewer caves than Trang An.

We took the boat tour at about half 10/11 in the morning, which was perfect timing in terms of getting on the river when it was quiet - not many other boats around and not many sellers. The guy that rowed us was great, we didn't get the same hassle that other people have mentioned at all. The scenery was... More

We wanted to visite the Tam Coc cave but it was overpriced! Just the entrancefee not including the boat is 120'000 Dong/person and for the boat 150'000 Dong (2 people) is extra and don't forget the tip at the end... You should visit Vallee du soleil by boat. It only cost 90'000 Dong for 2 people including the boat. The... More

I really loved the nature of Tam Coc (even more than Halong Bay) but from the moment you set out in the boat, there are people taking pictures or trying to sell you something. At the turn-around point there are women who put the pressure on by trying to get you to buy their snacks or drinks. If you won't... More

Enjoyment of every attraction in Vietnam is tempered by the hawkers and nuisances and this is no exception. From the minute you arrive here you will have folk wanting to take your photo, "One dollar! One dollar!" Maybe the first is what you want, after that its a nuisance. The solution is to not make eye contact and wave them... More
