What To Expect

Plan a perfect night out in Hanoi with this special guided tour. Start the night by watching Hanoi's famed Water Puppet Show, an impressive showcase originating from Northern Vietnamese villages in the 11th century. The show incorporates puppets, music and dance mimicking the traditional folk tales of Vietnam. Once the show ends, tuck into an authentic Hanoian dinner at a Cha Ca restaurant. This restaurant is known for serving the 200-year-old Vietnamese specialty dish infusing white fish in saffron oils, served with a variety of greens and washed down with a glass of Bia Ha Noi, the local brew. Complete your evening in one of the many street cozy side cafes with a cup of the famous Vietnamese coffee in hand.

    It was a time well-spent. Glad we didn't miss the chance to see the water puppet theater. Wish, our guide was very friendly. The food he introduced us to was very delicious, and the egg coffee tastes so good! Just wished the tour wasn't too short. It was fun hearing stories over coffee and tea.

    This is a great tour that gives you a taste of the culture and food in Hanoi. The tourist guide came to pick us up at the Hotel by car and then took us for a walk around Hoan Kiem Lake before watching the water puppet show. The show was amazing. After that it was dinner at Cha ca restaurant for the specialty food --grilled fish. I wouldn't be able to find the restaurant if I wasn't taken there by the guide. Good food! He took us around the Old District for a walk before settling on a Cafe for the special egg coffee. The egg coffee was good. All in all, we loved the tour and would like to thank our Guide for his work.

    This was really good. Our hotel was in the city only (please mind, if your hotel is far away you won't get the pickup), the guide came before time & spoke really well. He then took us around the streets & gave good inputs on shopping & the culture. He then took us to CHA CA LA VONG restaurant, which is a famous one operating from 1871. The fish there was yummy! Then he took us to a coffee joint & had egg-coffee!! Then the water puppet show was fantastic, but please try to sit in the front otherwise you wont be able to take any video. Post the show we came back on our own. When in Hanoi, definitely take this.

    太貴,收費$374*2(2200K越南盾) ,事後發現原本自行前往的話費用不到400K越南盾,足足貴了1800K越南盾
