  • This tour was amazing!

  • This is an excellent tour in terms of how many sights you see in a small amount of time. The Guide Mr T was very friendly and informative. The food at lunch time was tasty and plentiful. Overall my husband and I enjoyed this tour but felt that it was cut a bit short perhaps due to the heat. I also need to inform people that this tour does not include the water puppet show or a cyclo ride as advertised which is slightly disappointing. However, if you want to cover a variety of sights in a short time then this tour is perfect for that.

  • Hanoi is a fascinating city and this is a good way to see the various highlights. We by-passed the Mausoleum as the queues were in excess of 3 hours but we did return later in the day to see the presidential palace and th grounds. Unfortunately our tour group consisted of 14 people so everything took a little longer than planned so afte 9 hours of touring, we decided to forfeit the water puppet show and the cyclo ride. Perhaps a little more organisation would have been helpful.
