Let's try boat trip in Ninh Binh

this is the first time I have ever gone boat trip and it's so cool ! I also like Mua caves, although it is a bit tiring, on the top of the Mua mountain I can capture lots of wonderful pictures. I also satisfy with this tour because of the reasonable price and delicious food!

Tour is cheap but so high- quality

I want to have a tight budget tour so I choose Azlocaltrip. Initially, i a bit worry about the quality. But after the trip, it is so convenient. My car is luxury and clean, guide is freindly. She also help me to buy some stuff with cheaper price. Tam Coc is untouched and splendid. I feel so fresh in pure air!
