Despite torrential rain, our tour was worthwhile to see the majestic lime stone outcrops and caves. Undoubtedly even better in the dry!

For me this place kind of beat Halong Bay in terms of beauty. We cycled around 10k from Nihn Bihn town to get here, a bit arduous in the heat but nice to have the exercise. We were rowed around by a lady who could row using her feet. The scenery was so magical!! Would recommend wearing a hat. The... More

Its been great relaxing after long way from Dong Hoi, we've paid 140,000 dongs per person and it definitely worth it. Caves are interesting, specially the last one. You should visit another cave with good view which is nearby, but prepare for 400+ steps

Thoroughly surprised by how beautiful this was. It definitely looks like an inland ha long bay. The caves were stunning with hundreds of cute little bats flying around. So peaceful. Not too many tourists around. You are on the lake for about an hour. One tip - the people who row you along the lake demand a tip at the... More

This is the first review I have written on trip advisor I am so angry. I have been traveling for 3 months in SEA and so far have not seen so many scams in one place. First a guy took my picture and followed me up the road after the boat trip until I paid him. At the turning point... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 90 minute tour in a small boat through the caves and waterway. My suggestion is to visit either very early in the morning or later in the day - as the will be less tourists around at these times. I am still in awe of how these people can row the boats with their feet, allowing... More

My trip (half day) to this place from Hanoi cost 29 USD from AB Vietnam Tours. It included food, transport and one bottle of water. Sinh Tourist sells this trip for 35 USD. The scenery was beautiful (similar to that of Halong Bay). If you join the tour, you can cycle for an hour for free after that. The boat... More

This experience is very similar to the Trang An Grottos. You will see more foreign tourists at this site and the surrounding areas are more built up. There is a Lotteria nearby where you can eat. The difference between Tam Coc and Trang An is that Tam Coc has more fields underneath the limestone peaks. If you are looking at... More
