Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Private Tour: Hanoi City Full-Day Tour including Cyclo Ride. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Tour was very good, especially the Cyclo ride. The only problem was that the guide's English was not up to standard.
Good trip, knowledgeable guide but hard to understand sometimes. Cost a fortune in tips though (you don't have to pay all drivers just the cycle rider but feel you must). The mouseleum was really emotional.
A nice tour and good way to see around Hanoi. Our guide was a great guy.
Like a lot of Vietnam tours booked before arrival, this seems very expensive for what it was. Uncle Ho's mausoleum was shut, we saw his house (worth seeing) and a few temples. Nice lunch included but really not that interesting or value for money.
Was a little draining for our liking should only be a half day tour, lunch was superb, guide a little hard to understand
The overall tour was adequate. However, waiting one hour after lunch for the missing driver was unacceptable.
The cyclo ride is the worst way of getting around Hanoi. Awful pollution, with exhaust fumes in your face, and so awfully hot without much shade.
The tour guide was very friendly although did not have the best command of English. She started out by taking us to the Ho Chi Minh complex which was indeed a very interesting site. However she could not give us any further information or answer even the most basic questions so there was really no point of a guide - we could just have hired a driver to drop us off. The tour continued to the Museum of Ethnology which was closed. I suspected it was closed as the Viator page says museums are closed Mondays and Fridays and I wrote to the tour company and said I'd be happy to do something else instead. Obviously they did not inform the tour guide who was surprised that the museum was closed. The lunch was a nice multi-course Vietnamese food and nicely presented and next the cyclo ride in the old quarter was interesting to see.
The tour seemed to be put together without thought. With a taxi and a map I am sure I could have done this tour myself. Not worth the price paid.
