Tranquil, beautiful, and breathtaking. A must visit for anyone visiting Ninh Binh. Views were spectacular,and although they spoke very little English? The boat staff were very friendly and polite.

I thought trang an was extremely overun with tourists - I was wrong! There were probably about 10-15 boats out total, spread over the site. Our rower was lovely - she didn't speak English but was very friendly and keen to make sure we saw...More

I chose the TrangAn boat ride over the Tam Coc boat ride because of the amazing reviews. I was disappointed because for 200,000 dong per person, I was really expecting something spectacular. It was too touristy for me and after paying so much for your...More

Visited as part of a Stray Tour. 5 of us in one boat, and we had a great time. The scenery is stunning; makes you feel very small as you glide through the cave tunnels and between enormous pillars of rocks and greenery. The pagodas...More

There are a few companies that have English speaking tour guide. You can arrange for a special tour. I think the cost for an English speaking tour guide is $50 USD or less a day in addition to the standard tour fees.
