From Hanoi: Bai Dinh, Trang An, and Mua Cave Full-Day Tour
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 1 day
Well planned tour. Our tour guide ‘PeterPan’ was just ok, he mentioned that he is doing the guide job during uni vacations. PeterPan had to be reminded to be with the group, being in his 20s PeterPan was way ahead of the group, lost a lot of info that he was giving to the couple of youngsters that kept pace with him. The atmosphere of the pagoda was peaceful and calm, the sceneries from the boat ride felt like exploring a lost world, and the panoramic view on of Mua cave left us speechless. (The boat ride is about 1hr 30min. Enjoyed the cycling. The tour requires a lot of walking/steps (big/high solid foundation) in the Pagoda and climbing up the 500 (big/high but unstable footings have to be very very careful going up and down) steps in Mau Cave, so be sure to get a good rest the night before the tour.
My significant other and really enjoyed this trip. It was a quick turn around for a day trip as there was a lot packed into one day so I would suggest being prepared for a longer day. That being said Hotel pick Up from Hanoi was on time and convenient our tour guide was excellent, provided lunch was solid and arrangements came together without a hitch. Its a trip packed with other tourist for sure but gives you the ability to see a lot in a short period of time. Very worthwhile one day excursion from Hanoi especially with limited time to see these sites.
This is a must if you are visiting Vietnam! It was quite a long drive from Hanoi but well worth it. The views are amazing and the boat ride through the longest cave was impressive. Although we have been a little concerned about the corona virus, our guide said we were quite lucky it was so slow. Usually there is over an hour wait for the boats. We must have seen only a dozen or so on the water. Also, February is quite cool so pack a rain coat and warm jacket (think an average day in San Francisco 50s 60s F).
Thoroughly recommend, especially if you can go on a day with good visibility. Our guide, Giang, was very friendly, which made the trip even better. Lunch wasn't particularly good - standard tour group buffet restaurant - but I'd already built that into my expectations...
Wonderful experience, from the communication through WhatsApp when we first arranged the trip, to the final drop off back at our hotel, we felt is safe and very competent hands. A wonderful trip exploring some of Vietnam’s highlights
