Ninh Binh tour was really good : we enjoyed the visit of King temple, Mai Chau hike so exceptional! Lunch was really good and there were so many dishes that it was like a king lunch. Boat on Tam Coc was really beautiful, we had an amazing "driver", really kind. Finally, we got bicycling under rain in paddy fields (a little bit too short). Our driver was very nice and our guide (Hien) was kind and explained us a lot of things about Vietnamese culture.

It is a wonderful trip to admire the landscape and explore the culture. Strongly appreciate our tour guide, he was so enthusiastic in introducing us about the history of Hoa Lu, so surprised that this used to be the kingdom of Vietnam in the past. Tam Coc was so beautiful, we had a cycling and boating trip there, so interesting!

Myself, my husband and two-year-old son booked a private three-day two night tour through maichautours.net for the 15-17th July. We were collected early in the morning from Hanoi and taken to Mai Chau for a biking tour around the village and a trip to a remote cave (1200 steps up into the mountains – beware this is a tough one!). The first night was spent with a family in a stilt house in the village (homestay 19). The food here was amazing and the family were very welcoming. The scenery was gorgeous. The second day we departed to Ninh Binh early in the morning and visited Hoang Long river and Van Long Nature Reserve. We had the local speciality of various goat meats at a local restaurant and then visited Hoa Lu (King Dinh and King Le temples). We stayed at a local hotel which to be honest wasn’t great (and we spent the whole trip staying in homestays and hostels so we weren’t expecting much). On our final day we look a foot-rowed boat around the Tam Coc region which was fantastic and were then driven to HaiPhong to catch the boat to Cat Ba (which we arranged ourselves). Our guide made sure we had our tickets and provided us details for anything else we might need on our trip. I’d recommend all the actives we did (rowers of boats will ask for tips), it was amazing. The cost included all entrance fees, food and water as well as a private, decent AC car with driver and guide. While this was expensive, it was worth it. Our guide (and driver) were fantastic. Cuong was polite, fun and interesting and his English was amazing. He was also really clued up on international politics and we had several great discussions about life in Vietnam and abroad. I would recommend him to anyone and we hope to stay in touch with him!

Amazing trip!!! My friends and I had completed a trip to North Vietnam. After a half-day in Hanoi, we went to Ninh Binh, really expected the surprising things in the trip, and finally it satisfied us all. Both Ninh Binh and Mai Chau were so beautiful, I love the boat trip in Tam Coc, the landscape was so gorgeous. Mai Chau was less tourist than Tam Coc but I really impressed with the peaceful landscape here.

So lucky to book this trip!!! My husband and I went to Ninh Binh and Mai Chau. The trip would not be good like that without the help of staff, especially tour guide and driver. We visited Ninh Binh in an extremely hot day, so we were so tired and sweaty, but the tour guide was so thoughtful and gave us water and umbrellas.
