Itinerary
After pickup from your hotel in Hanoi, journey south into Ninh Binh Province by air-conditioned bus, minivan, or private vehicle (depending on tour option selected). Stop in Hoa Lu, the capital of Vietnam in the 10th and 11th centuries, and explore the historic city on a guided tour, admiring its ancient Le and Dinh dynasty temples.

Continue to Tam Coc, where you’ll be welcomed with a delicious buffet lunch of typical Vietnamese cuisine. After lunch, set sail along the Ngo Dong River and cruise through the stunning landscapes of Tam Coc, with its jagged karst cliffs, lush rice paddies, and atmospheric caves. After the cruise, cycle around the surrounding countryside on a bike ride, following a scenic route through rural villages and along the riverside.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Hanoi hotel.

Your hotel or hostel will be able to answer that better. I’m not sure if that’s too late to join for the next day but you can ask. The trip goes from about 7:30am to 6pm.
