We did a one day trip with this Agency to Tam Coc and it was very nice. Our tour guide Tom steered us through day with passion and a lot of humor. We definitely felt to be in good hands and could enjoy the day fully. First we visited two temples which was ok and after that we headed to our lunch place. The food was average but nothing to complain. After lunch we started the cycling activity which was amazing. We separated us from the group and explored the rice fields and the little town by our own. It was lovely! If I could choose again I would try to get a longer bike ride. Beautiful landscape!! After the bike tour we did the boat trip which was pretty touristic but still lovely and very relaxing. I would definitely recommend to stay another night in this area to enjoy and explore the this beautiful landscape. Thanks Tom Cruise for the lovely trip :)

Great boat trip

We had a great day out. It was only a couple of hours from Hanoi, with a little break half way. On arrival we had the option of seeing the temples or climbing to the top of a mountain...we opted for the mountain climb. Due to the cloudy weather, we didn’t see much which was disappointing but no one can help the weather After this, we stopped off for our buffet style lunch, which I must say was pretty good. We then did the boat ride which was a great time to relax and take in the beauty scenery. After the boat we could do the bike ride but chose not to due to numb bums from the boat! I would highly recommend this trip to see Vietnam at its best.
