Begin the day with convenient pick-up from your hotel and a relaxing ride to Hoa Lu. Cruise through the bustling streets of the capital and marvel at famous ancient temples of Le and the Dinh Dynasties. You soon make your way to Tam Coc for a flavourful Vietnamese for lunch around midday.
After lunch, step on board a boat and drift peacefully along a scenic river through the lush, green landscape around Tam Coc. Witness the beauty of towering peaks and karst rock formations as your guide rows you gently along, and gaze into deep caves carved into the limestone.
After your boat trip, continue your journey with a bike ride on quiet roads through quaint local villages, rice fields, and rocky outcrops surrounding Tam Coc. Your guide shares stories about the area's history as you pedal along before your tour comes to an end with transport back to your hotel.
