Help planning the tour to Hoa Lu and leave it to Sapa ?

We want a 1 day tour at Hoa Lu , lets say we are free from the morning of day X in Hanoi .

Should we come at day X to Ninh Binh spend the night at hotel, then take the tour the day after ?

Also, we have to go to Sapa after this, could we leave to Sapa the same day when finish the tour ?

Is it possible at all the go Sapa from there ?

How many days are reasonable to get this plan done ?

Thanks

We did the Hoa Lu/Tam Coc tour which brought us back to Hanoi for 7pm and then we caught the night train to Lao Cai/Sapa at 9.30. We had a really good sleep on the train and were ready to explore as soon as we reached Sapa. Book your train a few days in advance as sometimes they are booked out.

A day tour to Ninh Binh will take you back to Hanoi around 6 pm when you will still have enough time to take a night train at 10 pm to Lao Cai/Sapa.
