    Good overview of Hanoi. Our guide was accommodating and tried to cater to everyone. The wait for the visit to the musoleum was 90 mins long so we opted out. We could see the queue wrapped around the compound and spill onto the road. Overall, good little history lesson of a colourful determined nation. The highlight for me was the water puppet show at the Lotus theatre. Never seen anything like that before.

What To Expect

Go on a cultural immersion around Vietnam's capital city and discover Hanoi's heritage and traditions on a guided full day tour. Experience a convenient pick up at your hotel within the Old Quarters and head to your first stop of the morning - the Ho Chi Minh Complex. Named after the Vietnamese revolutionary leader and first president of the country, the complex is a significant destination for Vietnamese pilgrims, housing not only the final resting place of Uncle Ho himself, but also containing the Presidential Palace, a museum, and even the iconic One Pillar Pagoda. Your tour guide will fill you in on the legacy left behind by Ho Chi Minh as you make your way around the complex. Your next stop in the tour is right at the One Pillar Pagoda, just a three minute walk from the complex's mausoleum. One of two most famous Buddhist temples in the country, the One Pillar Pagoda stands as a symbol of a thousand years of civilization. Make your way to Tran Quoc Pagoda, the oldest Buddhist temple in Vietnam, dating back as early as the 6th century. Depending on the day you choose to take your tour, your next stop will find you at the Museum Of Ethnology, a museum that highlights the ethnic groups of the country, or the Bat Trang ceramic village, where unique styles of beautiful porcelain are produced. Finally, you will end your tour with an entertaining Water Puppet Show, a unique show where puppeteers immerse themselves in the waters as they use their strong arms to control the puppets and narrate folk stories, legends and more. The tour will conclude with a safe transfer back to your hotel to enjoy the rest of your evening.

    As we have a small group of 7, we convert out tour to a private tour with just paying a little extra. The bus pick us up at the hotel on time. The tour guide is very helpful and make a very smooth itinerary arrangement. We visited Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, follow by the Museum which we learn some history about Vietnam from the tour guide. We have a good and delicious Bun Cha lunch (visited by Obama in 2016) recommended by the tour guide before we heading to visit Temple of literature. Our city day tour ended with a very unique water puppet performance show. Thanks Klook, Thanks Rosa.

    I am a female solo traveler. booking this trip was a wise decision. Everything was amazing. Each itinerary was visited including the ceramic village (Klook usually offers a separate tour for Bat Trang Village which requires a minimum of 2 persons) I befriended the rest of the tourists in the group.

    What a fantastic day, despite the sweltering heat, our guide treated us to the best of Hanoi. We never would have covered so much in one day. A well organised but flexible tour with a small group museum of Ethology and Temple of Literature were real highlights we didn’t expect. Delicious lunch which was more than enough. The water puppets were a fabulous end to the day. Highly recommend.

    The Hanoi City Day tour is good and historical. However, it began to rain during our tour before lunch. The food during lunch is just okay. But I enjoyed their iced coffee with milk. Drinks have additional charges and not included in the payment for the tour. The tour will be enjoyed by people who are interested in the history of Hanoi.

    Get to know Hanoi and Vietnam more in this city tour. Water puppet is good, but just understand what story they are talking. Hopefully the tour lunch can include free flow of water (no drinking water included).

    Interesting Water Puppet Show. Half day city tour was great but guide was not as attentive to the tourists. He kept walking ahead without checking headcount/attendance.

    Tour guide picked us from the pick up point at 8:35, headed towards HCMC mausoleum, but did not stop as it was too crowded. The tour guide mentioned that we will come back after visiting hours to take pictures. Visited pagoda and ethnology. The guide provided an overview, but does not join for the tour of the place. We have to explore the place ourselves. Went back to mausoleum, took pictures. Lunch was fine for the set menu, arranged for vegetarians. Walked around the lake and then the water puppet(not in English, couldn’t understand much, recommend reading the pamphlet before the show).

    Guide did not drop us at the hotel after the water puppet show. We were also brought to tourist trap lacquer places not once but twice during the day. We felt rushed in a lot of the places and it sucks that we spent more than an hour in these tourist traps. I dont know if it is just the guide who did this or it is really part of all their tours. Guide again picked us up 15 mins earlier than the time they said they would arrive so be prepared for that
