Highlights
Visit Bai Dinh Pagoda and UNESCO-listed Trang An in a day from Hanoi
Tour and learn about the sites with a guide
See Bai Dinh and ride a sampan around Trang An’s limestone peaks and caves
Lunch, entry fees, boat, and transport included, plus upgrade to deluxe tour
What to expect
Book your preferred option and depart your Hanoi Old Quarter hotel by air-conditioned vehicle for Ninh Binh. Situated south of Hanoi, this largely rural province is studded with limestone karsts that rise over serene rice paddies and rivers. Arrive at Bai Dinh Pagoda, one of Vietnam’s biggest temple complexes, and ride an electric cart around the ancient and new statue-filled temples to see highlights, including a huge 32-foot (10-meter) image of Buddha. After a restaurant lunch of dishes, such as goat meat with elderberry, continue to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Trang An, where the limestone karsts, interlaced with grottoes and cliffs, are at their most beautiful. Board a shared, hand-rowed sampan for a cruise past emerald-forested cliffs and peaks and through mountain tunnels onto hidden rivers. Don’t forget your camera to capture the scenery. Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off in Hanoi.

The tour of this day trip were fine but lunch was a bad experience in Vietnam. Also I realized I was paying the most comparing to other tourists booked with other sites!
I have made a claim to the price guarantee policy provided by tripadvisor, unfortunately the email they gave bounds back and saying my message could not be delivered!
Please let me know if I will get the different of price guarantee like you guys said. (We're talking d500,000 differences)
If not is fine, I learned my lesson through TripAdvisor and will not book any programs provided by you guys!

The tour guide did not introduce about the tour & destinations. It’s waste time to picking up & drop off clients in Ninh Binh area. Not recommend!

Sep 2019
Lovely tour, there is a lot of walking but it is mostly undercover which does make a difference on hot days. I would make sure that you take a bottle of water in with you. I thought wrongly that the electric cars were something special but it’s just a little bus thing that gets you from point A to point B within the pagoda.

The trang an bay trip is an absolute must. It was breathtaking. We took the 2 hr trip and it was so enjoyable. The scenery is so lush and green. I would recommend this trip.

The lunch is just ok, I wasn’t really fussed but it didn’t take away from this trip.

It’s a fair takes approx 2 1/2 hrs it stops on the way for toilet breaks and our bus was really comfortable with great aircon

Thumbs up for Diep
Cons:
Bai Dinh- too hot and humid
Buffet food- cold and not tasty

Pro:
Wonderful guide Diep- he always helps us with young kids, and ensure that we can follow up with the group. Trying his best to give us the information. He also ensures the boat man is well taken care of. Thumbs up!

Excellent trip with fantastic guide Kimi
We have booked the tour through the hotel travel desk. When we were picked up, I came to know Wati Travel was the tour company.

Tour to Bai Ding was good but boat ride through Trang An lake was fantastic. Please carry umbrella if you are opting for this tour, as many had only hat and it didn't provide any protection from sun. Luckily we had umbrellas.

What made this tour so memorable was our fabulous guide Kimi. He made all the difference, gem of a person, always smiling and joking. People like Kimi makes company like Wati Travel to fly high. He is an asset to Wati Travel.

Thanks Kimi for making the tour a memorable one. Love from India.

Fantastic Tour
May 2019
Even though the weather was raining, this was an excellent tour. The Bai Dinh complex was amazing and incredibly spiritual. The 1,000 steps was worth the effort to reach another beautiful pagoda. Inside the pagoda's resonate with calm and peace and are magnificent. Go to admire carved statues, gold Buddha and landscaped gardens, but be entranced by the spirituality. Then on to Trang An and a boat trip, where you are rowed, around a very scenic waterway system with caves, islands and lovely scenery. The bicycle trip after lunch was cancelled due to the rain, however the tour was still very good and is highly recommended.

Its a Fake!
May 2019
When booking this tour I was under the impression that the Bai Dinh Pagoda had some cultural significance. However to my disgust I discovered it has been built and opened in 2015 by a wealthy Vietnamese individual purely for the commercial dollar, it has never been a functioning religious complex. There are electric cars which again are paid separately are owned by this same entrepreneur [he owns the self built palace you seen on the way to this sham] This same individual also controls the boats at Trang An. This are is certainly a spectacular area but be aware you are in a very small boat for two hours. You are asked to complete a questionnaire regarding the tour 3/4's of the way through which includes a question about the rowers asking for a tip [up to that point they haven't], however just before you dock they hit you up for a tip. This tip was going to be forthcoming however it all felt like a well oiled commercial machine. The lunch was quite generous as you dine with your group and a hundred others, what I would call a 'cafeteria'.
