We were led on this day trip by tour guide Anh (or Andy), and it was absolutely fantastic. Recommended by a travel agent, we chose the slightly more expensive option and it was without a doubt worth every penny. Great guide, amazing scenery and fabulous experiences.
Would definitely recommend to anyone doing Hanoi in a shorter period of time!!

It was a great trip to go see Ninh Binh. Our tour guide, Tommy, was knowledgeable about the history of all the places we visited and did a fine job getting us around to all the sites. A couple things I think he could have done better was manage the time at each of the stops since we had to wait at least 15 minutes at two places foe people to get back to the bus. Also, at the last stop, he should have sat at the front to help translate for the musicians who spoke in Vietnamese instead of sitting in the back until we asked what they were saying.

I never book tours recommended from hotels, however this case I made an exception because of all the good comments the tour had. And we were not disappointed.
Andy, our tour guide, was really good and had a positive attitude the whole time.
Great lunch, great places, great guide.

Yesterday my partner and I went on this tour and we absolutely loved it. Our guide, Vu was extremely knowledgeable and he spoke very clear English. He was genuine, funny and also personable. When we asked him questions he knew the answers. The tour took us to some lovely places and gave us plenty of time to explore. Highly recommend!!

We booked through our hotel and went on 19-09-2019, last day that Kong Island was opened to the public. Tour guide Nicholas picked us up from our hotel at around 8am in a luxury 7 seater van. The driver was safe and the van had good air con (essential in humid Hanoi). Trang An was stunning and the boat cruise highly enjoyable. Nicholas is a great tour guide. His English was very good and he answered all our questions and gave good insight into Vietnam life. He's very friendly and accommodating, and made the tour fun. It's a long day but a good option for having a taste of Ninh Binh. I recommend drinking lots of water (1 small bottle comes included with the tour) and having notes for tipping the Trang An boat operator, the Vietnamese musicians and your tour guide. You will also need small notes to use the toilets in Trang An.

Highly recommended. We were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi in a luxury bus (comfy chairs, AC adjustable above every seat, charging outlet behind every seat for your phone) to go to Ninh Binh. It was a two hour drive with a 20 min break to use the restroom and buy snacks. Our first attraction was Hoa Luu temple. We then went to Trang An for a two hour boat trip, rowed by a local so make sure you tip them. We picked the third route which takes you through three caves. Afterwards we had lunch which included like 8 courses. Finally we went to Mua Cave where we hiked up 500 steps to a beautiful view of the mountains. The hike up takes on average 30 min but we did it in about 15 min. The tour also included attending some Vietnamese traditional music show but we all opted to skip it. Our guide, Andy, was very friendly and informative!

This was a great tour out of Hanoi. They picked me up at the hostel and our guide Andy was very friendly and knowledgeable. I loved the boat tour through the rivers and caves - the scenery is breathtaking. After a great lunch we were able to hike up a mini mountain to see the scenery we had just been through on the boat. This was a really nice break from the busy crowds in Hanoi - the bus was very comfortable and the tour group was just the right amount of people. Great for solo travelers or groups!

Had a wonderful time visiting the ancient city of Hoa Lu with our friendly guide Andy from Rubicon who recounted the colourful history of the dynasties and enperors to us.
Then had a lovely boat ride in Trang An visiting the caves ,limestones formations and Kong Island
After a delicious lunch featuring local delicacies we had a pleasant bicycle ride to the three pagodas passing by rice fields and quaint villages
It was a very memorable trip
Thanks Andy 🤗
