Know More about this tour

Start your city excursion in historic Hanoi in the afternoon not by foot, but on board a “cyclo”. Equal parts transportation and travel experience, these traditional bicycle rickshaws move at a leisurely pace that’s perfect for photos and slow-moving sightseeing. Sit back and relax while your driver weaves through some of the Old Quarter’s busiest streets, dodging speeding motorbikes and rolling past French colonial houses on the way to your next destination.

Next, hop off your cyclo at The Northern Gate of the ancient citadel, a gargantuan fortress in the heart of the city. Learn a bit about the history of the imposing structure and Cua Bac Church, a beautiful example of French and catholic influence in the city.

Set off to the front of Quan Thanh Temple. This 11th Century Taoist temple is one of the oldest and most culturally significant in the city, and about a ten minute walk from the citadel. We then embark on a lengthier stroll toward West Lake, hearing the story of John McCain and this temple along the way. Heading off along a quieter back road our next stop is at the historic Pho Cuon Restaurant for a quick snack.

Our route takes off to Chau Long Market for a closer look at Hanoian culture in the flurry of a local market. After exploring the street stalls here, set off along Nguyen Truong To Street - famous for its desserts - towards Hang Than Street, the epi-centre of Hanoi’s thriving wedding cake stores. Learn a bit about Vietnam’s unique wedding culture while sampling some wedding cakes. You can then shake off your sugar rush on a stroll to nearby Hang Cot Street for a look at Hanoi’s mat weaving borough before stopping off along Hang Ga Street for a local coffee shop. We end your walking tour with a traditional Vietnamese coffee, and head back to our starting point.

    Really good tour with a super guide. It was just myself and my mum on the tour, so we made good time but were not rushed. Very interesting and a good overview of the city. Fun cyclo ride too!
