Hoa Lu, the former capital of Vietnam, is the first stop on the tour. Here, you can discover the ruins of the area’s former splendour while immersing yourself in its rich past. Travelling from Hoa Lu brings you to the Mua Cave, where the mountain offers you visions of the surrounding countryside.

The tour then includes a peaceful boat ride through the caves of Tam Coc. You can enjoy the breathtaking limestone karsts and unspoiled beauty that Ninh Binh is renowned for while floating down the river during this experience. 

Cycling enthusiasts will love the trip to the cave temples of Bich Dong Pagoda through lush fields. This portion of the tour leads to a spiritual sanctuary tucked away within the caves in addition to offering a closer look at the rural landscape. With lush greenery as a backdrop, the pagodas provide a peaceful moment for introspection.

The tour includes a delicious restaurant lunch that will allow you to sample some of the local fare. You can unwind and enjoy the trip hassle-free with the small-group transfers by limousine minivan, which guarantees a personalised and comfortable experience.
