What To Expect

Get a detailed overview of Hanoi's history and sightsee some of the most famous sights. In this tour of Hanoi your experienced tour guide will take you to some of the most historically significant places whilst relating some of the turbulent history of Vietnam. Start the day at Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum to recount the leader's movement for independence from French colonial rule. Ho Chi Minh's body was preserved after his death in 1969 and continues to be visited by thousands of people every year. Afterward, take the chance to stroll through the Presidential Palace grounds and see the one pillar pagoda temple. The Temple of Literature is well worth a stop, this beautiful 11th Century temple is dedicated to Confucious. Recharge your energy as you enjoy a delicious lunch at the Porte D'Annam Restaurant, your last stop for the day! The tour concludes outside of the restaurant, where you are free to either make your way back to your hotel/accommodation or continue exploring the nearby area.

    The tour was only me and my friends, overall the guide was average. It is pretty a fast tour as we finished it before the designated time and yes the guide and driver expected you to give them tips which me and my friend thinks that tips given are based on how well the guide is able to show us and tell us about the places we have visited... the historical knowledge of the guide which wasnt very extensive explained, you need to ask alot of questions to get the info or maybe sometimes not but even so we gave the min tips for both the guide and the driver which well, we caught them giving the unpleased looks when they received it.. which is disappointing on this tour... We dont mind giving more tips for guides who we really feel their sincerity... among all the tours we book... this was the worse for our Hanoi trip... waste of time and money... we went to the prison ourselves since we ended early...

    the tour is nice but the tour guide dont provide any travel to let us back the hotel, we have to go back by our self, we are very disapointed
  • Alexandra 5 Feb 2018
    Really enjoyed it, had a good tour guide. Had the tour to myself so felt personalized and learned a lot.

    Tour guide called our hotel to confirm pick up the next day. The driver and him were really prompt! The bus was in great condition, very clean. The guide was so knowledgeable and earnest. He shared stories of his childhood and it just made our study of Vietnam culture and history so authentic and raw. Guide was friendly and looked out for us. Cyclo riders were also great, gesturing at monuments or special sights we should see and take pictures of. Guide met us back at hotel after cyclo ride, and shared with us restaurants we should visit. Overall, really good experience!

    the tour planned by a private guide was simply well-organised and amazing. Well-spoken n warmth guide took us around the different places with private charter makes a fulfilling morning!
  • Hau Ting 2 Apr 2017
    Nice tour guide and good introduction to places that we'd visited. He speaks very good English.
  • Lucifer 22 May 2016
    Friendly guide, understanding history, full and comfortable and thoughtful, but also provide water to quench their thirst. Guide English dialogue fluent, on time to the hotel shuttle, no sales of local products, no tip. Everything is based on their own performance, by the heart to pay.
