What We Love:

Explore the formative years of Hanoi including the days under French colonial rule and Ho Chi Minh's campaign for independence beginning with a visit to Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum. Next, visit the imperial citadel, the apex of regional political power for more than a millennium which is still being excavated. Enjoy a traditional Vietnamese lunch before visiting the Temple of Literature, a relic from the 11th century built as an homage to Confucius, the Chinese scholar and philosopher. See the iconic Long Bien Bridge, a relic of French colonial rule crossing the Red River. Ride a cyclo and stroll past the heart of Hanoi, the beautiful Old Quarter, a collection of 36 narrow streets that were named for the products sold from their shops - Bamboo and Tin Streets still sell the same wares as they did years before! Get your caffeine fix at the end of the tour with a strong dose of Vietnamese coffee then round off the day with a picture taken with the beautiful downtown skyline as a background.

Wonderful tour! The tour guide was fantastic, and provided a very personal service.


The day trip is a wonderful experience. Only pity is We did not manage to visit the bridge due to rain.
