One day Hua Lu, Tam Coc and Mia Cave all inclusive tour
We booked this tour via Get Your Guide which was very easy and convenient. Hotel pick up was prompt and we were in a small group of around 12 of us. The mini bus was a little cramped but not too bad. Our guide was very friendly and keen to share lots of information about Vietnam and the history of the sites with us. The scenery in Ninh Binh is absolutely incredible - we did a 40 min bike ride through the foot of the mountains along side the paddy fields in the morning, after visiting the Hua Lu temple, had a quick buffet lunch (mediocre food at best, probably the only negative of the tour), and then went on the boat trip down Tam Coc. The geology and views as you paddle down the river are absolutely stunning, the definite highlight of the trip. Our rower was actually not very pushy at all, contrary to what others have said - the boats halfway down the river selling goods do pressurise you a bit to buy stuff from them, but we gave them a firm no and weren’t hassled too much by them. Our rower actually offered to take a couple of photos for us and even rowed slightly out of the way to pick us some lotus flowers, and she kept joking and laughing with one of the other rowers who were paddling along side us. We finished off the day with a trek up Mua Cave - it had started raining at the point so the steps, which were already very steep and uneven, were slippery and actually quite precarious. The views at the top though are also incredible - worth the extra effort if you can manage it! Overall, a great day out with lots packed in and great value for money - thoroughly recommend!

Tam Coc day tour
We did the day trip from Hanoi which was excellent with the trip up the Mau mountain being a highlight. As others have already said John Snow was a great tour guide with lots of amusing information about Vietnam and a great self-deprecating sense of humour. Even better - I left my wallet at a rest station only discovering this on our return to Hanoi. John went out of his way to find it - calling the rest station repeatedly and left a message to 0720 the next morning to say they had found it. aHe delivered it personally back to the hotel that evening having kept in touch by phone. He was brilliant and I completey endorse previous comments. Asian Discovery Travel are lucky to have such a dedicated guide.

The BEST tour in Hanoi due to our amazing tour guide Jon Snow
We enjoyed our tour till the last minute. Apart from the breathtaking sceneries & amazing landscapes , our tour guide Jon Snow was awesome. Very fluent in english , giving us information about Vietnam's history , and information about the spots we visited making our trip joyful. I would definately recommend this tour. The bus was comfortable with a/c and the whole experience deserves more than 5 stars.

A great trip today with the group. Tâm was a very good guide and ensured that we all knew what the schedule was. She also advised us on tip values at different places and answered all of our questions. We will do a tour with them again.

Ha Long Bay 2 Day cruise and day trip to Tam Coc and Mua caves
We have booked a trip with Tony/Asian discovery and our experience was simply excellent, from pick up at the hotel, to the boat, food and sightseeing activities. The trip to Tam Coc was not different, excellent guides, bus drivers and a simple bit good meal. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Van rental was excellent
We hired a van in Myanmar through this company. The entire experience was excellent. Their driver went above and beyond his duty by giving us travel advice. I was a bit hesitant working with a company that was operating out of Vietnam, but they had great pricing and excellent service and communication was perfect. In fact, my daughter left her camera in their vehicle and they delivered it to our hotel for us.
