I went during the winter so it was actually quite cold haha so bring a few more jackets so that you won't catch a cold! In the area, we also visited the Dinh and Le Dynasty temples, and learnt a bit of history about Hanoi,...More
You can make a day trip if you are staying in Hanoi. It's a great experience to enjoy the greenery and quiet waters of Tam Coc. Don't be pressured to add other activities to your boat ride. Payment for the entrance fee and boat ride...More
Visited Tam Coc. Nice place for rich wholesome family activities. The boat trip along the river was refreshing, relaxing and informative. The home visit was entertaining n educational. We enjoyed moving around on motorcyles too. It was fun n it was also a good way...More
It's like Halong Bay where mountains is on land and not in the water. Mountains surrounded by rivers and caves running through the mountains provides an incredible view. It's peaceful and nice to be away from the city life.
Definitely recommend going to the Tam Coc area, as it is a stunning place. I agree, however, with the other reviews: when you do a boat tour don’t buy anything (unless of course you just want to spend money) and give the rower a tip...More

The Tam Coc trip is surely a must do when you are in the area. Spectacular scenery and surprisingly clear and clean water. I do agree with some of the other reviews, The ladies at the turn around point are very pushy and you have...More
We took a day trip to Tam Coc from Hanoi and it was fantastic. It’s like Halong Bay on land and is not to be missed.
The tour included walking to the top of the mountain lookout / a very steep walk but well worth...More
A short drive from Hanoi will take you to this place where you could sit on a small boat with 2 or 3 others and enjoy a tour for over 90 minutes while it is ridden by a man or a women using legs. We...More

Ninh bin was beautiful, would definitely recommend visiting. There are quite a few eating joints around the place. So food won't be an issue. Would suggest carrying some water while going for the boating. Tipping is not mandatory but we tipped because we were really happy with the service. Beware of the floating vendors at the end of the boat journey. Our guide specifically told us to ignore them and glad she gave us the heads up.
