This has been my favourite excursion so far. This trip covered so much...temples, boat trip through gorgeous mountains and caves, cycling in the countryside, the King Kong island and then the amazing Mua mountain and cave. Truly stunning and amazing trip. Guide brilliant and friendly and the coach was like a private jet with big reclining leather seats. A must!!!!

Our guide was an exceptional guide, very knowledgeable, funny, and fluent in English. The tour is very entertaining: you'll get to experience many beautiful sceneries, from the Trang An river and its caves to the view of the valley from above the 500 steps in Mua Cave (not recommended for elderly people especially if on a sunny day, as the steps are quite tall - anybody with normal mobility will sweat going up but it's definitely worth it). The limo bus is also pretty comfortable

Alex was such a great guide during my time in Ninh Binh. He knew when to go to places to avoid crowds and added a temple we were interested in seeing the last day of the trip. One of the best guides I've had on a trip! It's a beautiful place to visit for sure.

I had an excellent time on the 2 day Ninh Binh tour. Our guide really helped make the trip very memorable for my friends and I. We thought the 2 day duration was perfect and allowed us plenty of time to enjoy the scenery, bike around the Vietnamese countryside, and really get to know Vietnam from a local's perspective; I'm glad we did the two day tour over the one day. During the tour, we had great food at a bungalow, we biked around, took a boat ride down the river, hiked to the top of Mua Cave, visited the Ancient Capital, and a variety of other destinations that are outside of the mainstream. Additionally, the bungalow we stayed at on the river was very nice! Biking through the Vietnamese countryside during sunset is a memory I will always cherish.
