It’s the best tour we have made! Not only for what we have seen (I think the morning tour is the most complete) but expecially for our guide! A young girl, I think her name is Anna but I’m not sure, it seemed to visit the city, not with a guide but with a friend. Very acknowledge! Highly reccomended

Our tour guide Anna was very informative, she was a pleasure to be around and was very helpful during the day. This tour is only half a day but feels like you see more than most full day tours we have been on. Very interesting sights in an amazing beautiful city.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2017

Our guide Anna was excellent. The tour was very informative. Our favorite part was the green tram ride through Old Hanoi.

Booked this tour last minute before travelling to Hanoi as with only 2 full days in Hanoi thought it best to get the most of it with some local knowledge. Anna the tour guide was excellent and we learned a lot in the half day tour not only about the sites we visited but about general day to day need to know in Hanoi / Vietnam.
Not on the tour or many tours is the Hanoi Hilton nickname given to the old jail by American GI's for this interested in the history of Vietnam worth a visit.

A really great way to learn about the city of Hanoi in an afternoon. Our guide, Lein, was very informative, friendly and fun.

Excellent guide and well organized afternoon. The tour was moderate paced and keyed toward first time visitors to Hanoi. I would recommend a visit to one of the military museums be added to the itinerary given the day started with the trip to the History Museum but stopped with the early 1800s. Much of Vietnam's modern history is tied to the French colonial period and the war that ended in 1975.

Booked a half day hanoi city tour during our short 4d3n stay in hanoi. Meet up with our tour guide elly and the intern girl in the afternoon. Elly is very accomodating, knowledgeable, friendly and nice. Gets to know more about vietnam's culture and history from her and pick up a few Vietnamese language from her. Highly recommended!

The tour guide was very friendly and reasonably knowledgeable but we didn't visit as many places as expected during in the half day tour in my opinion.

It was expensive for what it was... compared to other tours we have done in Vietnam. Felt we could have/should have easily added in a few other sights to this tour
