First we will enjoy a bike trip on countryside roads to Hoa Lu to visit the Dinh and Le temples, while capturing pictures of the peaceful surroundings. Then we will continue cycling to Tam Coc, passing through the limestone peaks, rice fields and rural villages. After eating lunch in a local restaurant, you will continue your trip in Tam Coc with a romantic boat trip along the Ngo Dong river, as you sail among stunning rice paddies and ranges of limestone mountains. After the boat trip, we will return to Hanoi.

Arrive at the dock around noon, and then embark on a cruise, followed by a delicious lunch while the cruise sails further to the secluded, island-dotted bay.
