Full Itinerary

Hanoi Full Day City Tour
Visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (closed on Monday, Friday and during the months of September and October) and his former residence (closed on Monday and Friday), One-Pillar Pagoda and the Temple of Literature, known as the first university of Vietnam and built more than 1,000 years ago.

Continue the city tour to Museum of Ethnology.

After lunch (on your own account), enjoy a leisurely one-hour cyclo tour through Hanoi. Visit the beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake and Ngoc Son Temple then a walking tour into the hidden alleys of Hanoi Old Quarter.

The best way to really experience Hanoi's Old Quarter is on foot. As you explore the route below, stop for coffee at a local cafe or a storefront geared to tourists in the backpacker area of the quarter (your own expend). Stop for a chat; folks are busy but friendly if you take the time to connect. Sitting in a small coffee shop in the sidewalks, sipping your iced coffee and see Hanoi’s streets is nothing as wonderful as it is. For many people, a cup of coffee is simply a crutch for the sleep-deprived but Vietnamese coffee, on the other hand, can teach you the feeling of linger. Hanoi’s coffee culture calls on coffee addicts from every corner of the globe!

Overall, average satisfactory for Hanoi day tour.

Lots of places were closed on the day. So we are unable to visit some places as planned. Chinese speaking tour guide is not so fluent in Mandarin (despite we can understand him).

Peter gave a great tour of Hanoi considering my difficulty walking and being flexible. He was wonderful. The rest of the tour was interesting and informative

I would suggest adding a bit of information and showing of different examples of your finest architecture , Vietnamese, Chinese, French and newestablished designs with the history

Lunch was good, guide came early and was very accommodating.

we have our tour on monday, thus many places were closed. Moreover, many of the other attraction was closed due to ambassador visit. A pity that we didn't get to see too much of Hanoi attraction.
