Overall, the tour was quite well organized, although the collection of guests from the various hotels has taken over 1.5 hours (unfortunately I was the first - but I felt for several "free" tours through the old town of Hanoi experience). To the sights sufficient (also entertaining) information was given. The guides (Papaya and Linh) have made a lot of effort. The food was surprisingly good for a mass (5 coaches at the same time) (fried spring rolls, Vietnamese spring rolls, roast or grilled pork, chicken and goat meat (Ninj binh is known for goat!) With salad, noodles, rice and div. Fruit).
A great day with plenty to see. The small coach was comfortable and the journey went smoothly. Our guide was great and gave us lots of information about Vietnam. The combination of sights was ideal. The bike ride was on the main road on the way but went on a back road on the return which was very scenic. However, I stopped several times to take photos and got separated from the group. It would be good for the guide to actually stop occasionally so that people can take photos.
very good value for money, beautiful temples and pagodas, great boat tour, nice guides (Rose and Linh), only we had bad luck with the weather today ... very gray with drizzle ... otherwise everything ok !!
very pleasant visit; top guide, awesome temple tour, superb boat ride 6kms return and bike in the countryside !! I highly recommend this visit
