Für mich war die 2-Tage Tour eine aufgeblähte 1-Tagestour Tour. Am ersten Tag war sie um 14:30 Uhr beendet. Am zweiten Tag durfte ich häufig warten. Schlechte Organisation.

De eerste dag was super mooi, alles word goed geregeld. Tegen het eind van de dag werd mij pas verteld dat ik de enige van de hele groep was die zou blijven slapen daar. Dus de volgende dag moest ik bij een andere groep aansluiten, eerst een uur ergens langs de weg zitten wachten. Om vervolgens ongeveer dezelfde boottocht en fietstocht en 1 andere tempel te bekijken de tweede dag. Beetje jammer ik had net zo goed 1 dag kunnen boeken maar in de beschrijving stond een hele andere planning dan ik heb gehad.

Die Tour war im Großen und Ganzen wie beschrieben. Allerdings muss man wissen, dass es im Prinzip zwei Eintagestouren waren. Wir wurden in Tam Coc ausgesetzt am Ende des ersten Tages (Mittags um 2). Tag 2 war fast das Gleiche wie Tag 1 (inkl Einkehr im selben Restaurant zum Lunch mit dem selben mittelmäßigen Essen). Die Zweitagestour lohnt sich finde ich eher nicht. Was man sehen sollte: Bootstour ab Trang An, Bich Dong Pagode, Mua Cave mit Aussichtspunkt. Die Guide waren alle super nett und fürsorglich, das ist dickes Plus.
