What people are saying about Ninh Bình Province

This tour is great if you don't have much time to visit Ninh Binh on your travels. They gave us a short time slot to pick us up from our hotel and they were on time. The bus was comfortable with good air conditioning for our small group of 13. It's an early start but that means that you are on the river boat early, before most of the tour groups arrive which meant that sometimes you felt like the only boat there. Our tour guide, Frankie, was amazing at English and very funny and informative. I would highly recommend this tour.

Great trip to Nin Bihn with a very good and interesting guide! He was in a good mood and took good care of us. We saw beautiful places by cycling a (very small) tour, being sailed through a beautiful valley and climbing a mountain. Huge recommendation! The breakfast was also good

We had a lovely experience and it was an absolutely incredible day! However my partner got sick after eating the shrimp onboard, so it might be a good idea to skip that. Otherwise we were very happy with the day and would do it again!

Must do activity! Our guide Franky was the star of thei trip! Gets sweaty while hiking so an extra tshirt wouldn't hurt in case of change post the hike! Overall an amazing experience ❤️

This was a great day with a packed schedule. The biking was cool and the final hike was hard so very worth it. If you have an extra day, I would definitely recommend this trip.
