    What to Expect
    Begin your day with a 7.30am pickup from your central Hanoi hotel. After meeting your guide and small group of up to 10 people, hop aboard a minivan and soak up the scenery on the around 2-hour drive to Ninh Binh province.

    On arrival, set out on a scenic 4.5-mile (7km) bike ride around the countryside, pedaling past lush rice paddies and farmlands, and enjoying a glimpse of local life in the rural villages. Stop along the way to admire beautiful temples, churches, and communal houses; browse the stalls at the local market; and chat with the locals.

    Next, get hands-on as you help the villagers with daily farm chores, such as fishing, watering plants, or catching crabs, then head to a local family home for lunch. Discover the secrets of traditional Vietnamese cuisine as you help prepare an array of local dishes, then sit down with your hosts to enjoy lunch.

    In the afternoon, set out to explore the idyllic landscapes of the Van Long Nature Reserve. Enjoy a boat cruise through the serene reserve, looking out for wildlife such as the endangered Delacour Langur, and admiring views of the green valleys and distant mountains.

    After a full day in the countryside, return to Hanoi, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
