My professional driver takes us to south into the Ninh Binh Province, then we set sail along the Ngo Dong River and cruise through the stunning landscapes of Tam Coc, with its lush rice paddies, jagged karst cliffs, and atmospheric caves, often called the ‘Ha Long Bay of the interior.’

Next, we drive on to the must-see place Bich Dong pagoda – a series of atmospheric caves filled with ancient shrines. It’s fascinating to contemplate the work that went into carving these monuments into the mountain.

Ninh Binh Trang An – Hoa Lu Private Tour

Ninh Binh is a rising star in the list of tourist experiences when coming to Vietnam. The place possesses a breathtaking ancient beauty with serene landscapes and magnificent temples.

Most of us probably have one thing in common: we’re all pretty busy. Every day is another checklist to tick off. And we’ve forgotten how important it is to slow down, rediscover how beautiful our home planet is and share those special moments with our loved ones. 

So we’re here to tell you to drop everything and visit Ninh Binh.

Our Ninh Binh private tour starts at your hotel lobby, and in our modern air-conditioned vehicle. My professional driver takes us to visit Hoa Lu Ancient Capital – a relic complex in the North of Vietnam and the capital of three ancient dynasties. This place tells you the story of a thousand-year history of Vietnam.

hoa lu gate

We love this town. Really. Truly. It’s the perfect place to relax, contemplate and be at one with nature. The water here is so clear you can see the fish swimming around. The only sounds you hear are from nature: birds chirping, water splashing against your boat as it slowly makes its way around the mountains, gorges and inside the Trang An cave complex.

This is the image description

Optional: if you like hiking we can also visit Mua Cave – the model of “miniature Great Wall” in China with nearly 500 steps up to mountains to conquer. It is a hard trek up with many of its uneven limestone steps ( especially at the top point) but worth your conquering efforts for an impressive panoramic view of Tam Coc, Trang & Ninh Binh city when you reach the top point of Ngoa Long mountain.

A trip to Ninh Binh does wonders for allowing yourself to reacquaint with mother nature, thank the air that surrounds you with every breath you take and find yourself in the appreciation of life.

During your private Ninh Binh tour, you will be offered a choice of beautiful Vietnamese food and drink at excellent local restaurants if required, and at the end of your memorable day you will be returned safely to your hotel

Hanoi City Private Sightseeing Tour

Hanoi (Hà Nội) is an interesting mix of the East and the West with noticeable traces of the communist influence as well as the French invasion. This tour is designed to immerse you in the historical monuments, the lively life of the residents, and the excellent street cuisine, cafés, and restaurants in one of the most charming cities in the world.

A suggested itinerary begins with Ha Noi egg coffee – a Hanoi speciality. A creamy soft, meringue-like egg white foam is perched on dense Vietnamese coffee. Next, we make the journey to Ho Chi Minh (Uncle Ho’s) Mausoleum complex, Uncle Ho is the symbol of Vietnamese liberation and the father of many motto’s, and his most famous one is the first thing you meet inside: “Nothing is more important than freedom and independence.”

With difficulty, we must leave the Mausoleum and its intriguing history to our next visit, the First University In Vietnam “Quốc Tử Giám”. From the onset, you can’t help feeling a sense of awe that 1,000 years ago, before some countries were even discovered, Vietnam was building its first university. The Temple of Literature in Hanoi was constructed in 1070 and is one of Vietnam’s most significant historic sites with stone steles relics recognised by UNESCO.

You have the opportunity to enjoy delicious northern Vietnamese food at one of Ha Noi’s many local eateries

Any visit to Hanoi will inevitably discuss the effects of almost 100 years of French Colonialism and the later Vietnam War, so the next visit is the sobering Hoa Lo Prison Museum (The ‘Hanoi Hilton’). Thankfully, much of the prison built by the French has been demolished, and what you see now is the original gatehouse transformed into an informative museum.  I will be interested to hear your views on the portrayal of the Vietnam War period.

Entering Hanoi’s Old Quarter with the sense of time standing still for centuries, we start our walking tour visiting Hoang Kiem lake – the “Lake of the Returned Sword”; this scenic beauty offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. We walk over the red bridge to visit the 17th century Ngoc Son Temple.

And at the end of your memorable day, you will be returned safely to your hotel.

What’s included:

  • a full 8 hour private guided tour in English
  • all entry fees
  • cold, bottled mineral water
  • moist towelettes
  • use of a modern air
  • conditioned vehicle & my professional driver.

What’s excluded:

  • meals & drinks etc taken during the tour (bottled water is free of charge)
