Amazing tour with amazing guide! We had a private tour for three of us to visit Ninh Binh in North Vietnam. Jenny from AZ Local Trip arranged for us. We visited Hoa Lu and Trang An for one day. The boat ride in Trang An was my favorite. The scenery was amazing. It looks wayyyyyyyyyyyyy more stunning than in the movie "Kong: Skull Island". The food was local and ethnic. We thought we wouldn't like goat meat but the way the local restaurants prepared it was delicious. We couldn't tell it was goat meat. Highly recommend this tour!

Interesting and informative! Our tour guide were so good at engaging his customers in his stories. We found the background of Hoa Lu Citadel quite interesting. Trang An is undoubtedly beautiful. Cycling around the village is fun. The food was just acceptable
