Guide is so enthusiastic

I visited Ninh Binh alone. But my guide is so friendly. We soon become close friends. Especially, Mua cave is more beautiful than photos on the internet

Great service with so so friendly local guide Linh

Love Mua Mountain with the fantastic view of the Tam Coc valley and the boat ride in Trang An. And the local restaurant served tasty Vietnamese food, especially goat meat. I would truly recommend this Trang An Mua Cave tour

Amazing tour with amazing guide!

I knew about AZ Local Trip through a friend and now I know why she loves their tours so much. They are very professional, especially Jenny, who gave us a lot of useful advice on our trip. At first, we planned to include Hoa Lu and Tam Coc in our one-day itinerary, but Jenny said that we should sort them out and keep Trang An and Mua Cave so that we could have more time to relax. And it turned out that her customized itinerary fits us so well. We not only explored the best destinations in Ninh Binh but also had leisure time to walk around talk with locals to learn more about their lifestyles. Vietnamese people are so friendly!

Great tour with a local guide!

We did a day-tour from Hanoi to Hoa Lu and Tam Coc with AZ Local Trip Our guide came from this area so knew it intimately and proved to be a wonderful guide. While it is only superficially comparable to Ha Long Bay (same limestone cliffs) it deserves recognition in its own right. The scenery was great and our bike ride through the rice harvesting paddi's was epic. The boat trip of 90 minutes was amazing - our lady rower earned her tip. I was intrigued with their method of rowing. They only use their feet! My kids love the biking part and they insist going back to Tam Coc next year! Thank Jenny for supporting us! This is the first time I ate Com Chay

The tour exceeds my expectation!

The tour guide is awesome! His English is good and the way he engaged us in the stories of Hoa Lu and Tam Coc is very interesting. Also, he is very patient and didn't rush us when we couldn't set off on time due to my sister's personal problem. His sense of humor gave him a plus. In regard of the tour itinerary, I have to say that it's suitable for us. We didn't need to rush and had a chance to explore the villages on 2 wheels, which was great! Compared to Halong Bay, Tam Coc is mediocre but it has its unique charm. Highly recommend this tour!
