Your shared or private tour will begin as you are picked up from your hotel or meet us at the suggested place in the Old Town at around 7:30-8:00. This morning, we will start with a scenic drive from Hanoi to Ninh Binh by a comfortable bus. Upon arrival, we stop at Hoa Lu- the ancient capital of Vietnam from 986-1010 where our guide will explain about our first feudal government of Vietnam while we are visiting different parts of the capital. 

Make our way to Tam Coc for a delicious lunch at a local restaurant and some rest. After lunch, discover Tam Coc and its beauty by sailing along the Ngo Dong River through the stunning landscapes of Tam Coc with its jagged karst cliffs, lush rice paddies, and three atmospheric caves.

After the cruising, we will start our scenic bike ride around the surroundings passing rural villages and along the riverside. The day ends beautifully with a sunset party where you can enjoy local tea, and fresh fruits while watching the sun goes down from the horizon over the spectacular landscapes.

A day with full unforgettable experience has come to the end. Goodbye until you see us again.

Founder & Photography Guide

Specialties: Culture, landscape, portrait, hiking, active and adventurous tour

Besides my unlimited passion for traveling, a professional tour guide for over a decade, I have been taking photographs since sitting at Hanoi of the University of Culture in the early 2000s. Photography started as a hobby but it was seriously taken due to my work relations and my significant passion for the beauty of our world, especially in Southeast Asian parts such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar.

Within a few years of taking photographs, my works began to be recognized by many reliable international publications such as AFAR Travel, The Times, and The Daily Telegraph newspaper. In addition, I continuously add to my growing profile by winning numerous major awards: 3rd Position of The Independent Photographer 2018, 1st Position of Amateur Photographer of the year 2018, Grand Prize Winner of the AFAR Travel Photography 2019, and a Gold Award of San Francisco Bay International Photography 2020.

I photograph a wide variety of subjects, from travel to landscapes to street scenes. I enjoy documenting the East’s rich cultural heritage and its land soaked in glorious sunrise or sunset light in remote and secluded spots. And, I am very happy to share my knowledge and experience with you. You can visit Luminousvietnamtour to explore tour!
