"Really great experience! I went on this trip alone and it was amazing. The temple was a really cool experience and not as many steps as I thought it would be. There was one part of steep stairs but that was about it. The caves were really cool, although the person rowing aren't exactly the most pleasant person but that has nothing to do with this company so I'm not knocking them for it. It was a really beautiful area. The bus we ride in was nice and had A/C which is always welcomed. But the real reason I recommend this place is because of the guides. Our main guide was Kimmy who was a goof ball in the best way and was really fun to be around. There was an intern Lihng who was sweet as well. Between the both of them it made the experience very enjoyable" Less

We are a group of 9 people booked the Bai Dinh Trang An Tour with AZ Local Trip. The guide Eric (Nam) was excellent and passionate even though ours was only his fourth tour for this company. He was knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer our questions about the Pagoda and the everything about Buddhism of which we were very curious about. We actually did a lot of walking in Bai Dinh Pagoda since the area is so large, which was a little bit exhausting. However, the delicious lunch cured it all :D. Everything else on the trip was great. They even gave us free sim card which was very useful during our stay in Vietnam. Thanks Daisy, Eric for making our trip completed! Less

"Overall Bai Dinh Trang An tour was great value for money Scenery especially around the caves and surrounding hills was nothing short of magnificent. The guy rowing us around had no English but this didn’t matter as he was great fun anyway Interacted with some Korean gents on the water and enjoyed the water leg of the tour enormously. Our tour guide ( Aaron) must have been having a bad day and was quite rude on several occasions. Walked off at one stage whilst I was talking to him shaking his head. Surprising given how friendly the locals had been during the stay. As we got off the bus at the cathedral he refused to show me where we were on the map of Hanoi so very disappointing end to what should have been a great day Still good value for money and would still recommend the tour. Other reviews rave about the guides so I’m guessing we just had a little bad luck." Less

"Bai Dinh & Trang An tour A well organised day trip. Huy was our guide and he was very good, excellent English and happy to help out with anything. A little out of the way but well worth doing. The sampan boat trip was great. Especially the caves, some only half a meter high that you have to lie down flat for. The only reason I gave 4 star mark was due to the long (20mins) toilet stop each way. That stop was very dirty and the snacks very overpriced." Less

"This was one of the best trips we have done in Vietnam. Trang An is effectively Halong Bay but inland. You will take a 2 hour row-boat trip through meandering canals and caves that make up the area. It is beautiful, peaceful, green and just lovely. You will regret it if you dont spend some time here. My only observation is that the boat seat is hard and the stop on Kong Island was very welcome. Bai Dinh is an impressive complex and our guide did well to explain the history and features of this site - FYI it is 2000 dong for the toilets (and they are persistent). Over all a really memorable trip and one I would recommend." Less

"The lake and limestone escarpments are awesome! The highlight was the boat trip around the lake at Trang An and through the limestone tunnels. It was magical and mostly made up for the earlier disappointments. Not so magical was the condition of the bicycles they had us use before the lake excursion. The bicycles were junk! We rode through a scenic and interesting little valley, but the crappy bicycles kept us from enjoying the views. Also the morning tour of Bai Dinh was a disappointment. While it is well done, it was built by a private enterprise as a tourist site only about 15 years ago. There is nothing historic except for the ancient temple up on the hill, which you don't even have time to go see. My expectations were that it was an historic site." Bai Dinh Trang An Tour Less
