There are lots of tourists here, but there is a reason: It's beautiful! And once you are in the boat it does not feel so crowded anymore. We went in the middle of the day, there were less people at that time. When coming back we saw many more people starting the tour. There are three routes to choose from and we chose the one with many caves. The landscape is amazing and going through those caves by boat was a very special experience. We also saw some birds on the way. There is a minimum of 3 people per boat, so we had to wait for another couple before our boat took off. The boat stopped 3 times at temples where we had to wait around. I did not like those stops that much, they were too long. The temples are all newly built ones. But you can gaze at the landscape while waiting. We did also the boat rides at Tam Coc and Van Long, but Trang An was the nicest one. This review is for the boat ride and not some tour operator.

It was amazing trip in ninh binh. The scenery is so beautiful that no words can describe it. You will be sitting on a small boat to visit the cave and the surrounding scenery. This is one of my best experiences.

This was an enjoyable tour. You have an option of 3 tours. The shortest is 2 hours going through 4 caves. There is a 2 1/2 hour tour with more caves, then the 3 hour tour that goes through 9 caves.

We found that once you’ve gone through the 4 caves, the rest would just be repetitive.

We did bring along rain ponchos just in case.

We enjoyed this tour and would recommend it.

This is one of the craziest boat rides I have ever done and I need to appreciate the staff for paddling us three continuous hours through the tour.
Chose the route one with 9 caves and 4 temples.
My very first time to go through caves In a paddleboat and this experience is insane and the place is insanely beautiful throughout.
Never miss this boat ride because it's not a regular one.

Well worth the cost and time. Enjoyed a very relaxing boat ride through amazing landscapes with many stops along the way. Very busy on weekends but we went during the week, much more peaceful. Highly recommend

This trip was impressive! This is absolutely a must when visit Ninh Binh. My family took one boat and we took tour 2 and 3. Some may don't understand why we did both tour on the same day. This route is highly recommend from the local. He told that when we go, take the tour 2, when return tour 3. If so, you can visit 2 longest and most beautiful caves. We went on the afternoon so the weather is perfect. No piece of trash was seen along the trip. You can swim a boat if you want to (there are bonus paddles on the boat) One fact that, the Kong movie actually been filmed at Trang An. You can ask the boatmen where the scenes were set up.

This place is seriously heaven on Earth! It is definitely not expensive, given that the boat tour takes 3 hours and the scenery is breathtaking throughout! We visited in October and took route 1. Going through the caves was great, the guide was super friendly, and the place is INSANELY beautiful. Would visit again in a heartbeat!
