Begin with pickup at your hotel in Hanoi, and travel into the countryside by air-conditioned bus. Enjoy views of rural communities as the city traffic gives way to fields and villages, then disembark at Yen Vi Wharf, where you’ll board a boat on the Yen Vi River. Navigate downstream past rolling green hills and limestone mountains, then return to shore at Duc Wharf. This tour includes round-trip access to the Perfume Pagoda cable car, so you can reach the mountain shrine without climbing the steep, slippery footpath up the mountain. Get high above the river as the cable car approaches the summit, and continue by foot on the light hike to Huong Tich Grotto. Enter the grotto to see Buddhist shrines sheltered by limestone walls, then tour the rest of the Perfume Pagoda, a series of important pilgrimage sites for Vietnamese Buddhists. Pause at a local restaurant for lunch before descending by cable car for the return trip to Hanoi. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
