Excellent day, long and ran over the times, but this is not a negative. Lots packed into a day, however could have spent less time in the pottery village.

Whole day we kept driving repeatedly and passed through the same roads over and over again. Poorly planned , exhausting and incredibly a waste. The guide did not say ever which area we were passing through, we wondered. Also felt the same at attractions we stopped at. In the end we were dropped at puppet show and asked to go to our hotel by ourselves. I have injured knee, we went wrong way and had to walk back with limping knee. Others , who did not attended the show were also asked to walk to their hotels and dropped at the same place as us.

I did not like this trip at all.

Started well but the tickets said returned to your hotel, this was not the case, we were left standing outside the Water Puppet show for quite a while when the guide went off with other tourists to help them find their hotel, we did not know this, he then gave us the tickets for the show and said goodbye, we all queried regarding the transfer to the hotel and he said that they do not do that and pointed to the direction of the hotel and said three sets of lights turn right or to go and catch a cab. For old people this is terrible especially as the traffic is very busy in Hanoi.
