  • My Husband and I really enjoyed the tour, The guide was a lovely lady with good english. She enjoyed giving us a short history of Hanoi and silk/silk industry. Van was comfortable, cold water provided. I thought there would be many opportunities for me to buy silk in Hanoi/Ha Long bay, but I didn't get any other than on this tour, so now I wish I had purchased more silk satin fabric around 14-00 per mtr, I thought the price was very good and also purchased some finished items of clothing and soft furnishings. A simple silk scarf I love and a long silk skirt for my daughter among other things. I thought this was a nice easy way to spend a afternoon, but if you are not into fabric, you may not find it worthwhile.

  • Just okay, goods overpriced, educational aspects just satisfactory. Have been on better tours.
