What people are saying about Ninh Binh

We liked the cruise a lot, in terms of facilities, cleanliness, aesthetics. The room was not very big, but it was comfortable, the beds very good, the bathroom large with a bathtub overlooking the bay and a shower. It also had a small balcony. The food was good, the portions not very big. Drinks are excluded, except for 2 small bottles of water. Everything was perfect. What we liked was the time of the excursion that did not reach 24 hours. We got on the boat around 1 in the afternoon and got off the next day around 10 in the morning. We had to get up very early (6 am) to have breakfast and do the last excursion. Everything was very fast, at 9 they gave us a brunch, which was a lunch, and we already took the smaller boat back. I think this should be improved and at least be on board for 24 hours, or be more specific with the schedules, and not say 2 days, because they really aren't.

Great communication from the start. My partner and I had special travel arrangements that the tour company was very accommodating about. At no point was I unsure about the plan for pickups and drop-offs. The itinerary for the day was well-planned and the crew made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. Special shoutout to our guide, Ken, for being such a wonderful host. He was very informative and very funny

if you want to see the landscape of the world and the countryside scenery, the rustic local life at the same time then this is the trip you need to do , everything is beyond expectations

Amazing views and events. Guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.

Wonderful tour. The guide was excellent and we love it!
