Full description
Start the tour while posing at St. Joseph's Cathedral and wandering around the central spots of the Old Quarter. Your professional guide will not only take special and cool shots for you, but also make your picture spectacular and unique. Next to the cathedral, you also can capture a nice shot at the Hanoi House Cafe with its ancient features surrounding you.  After that head on to Hanoi Big Opera House built by the French for 10 years, located near August Revolution Square. And we can't miss out on the Sword Lake with the Temple of Jade Mountain too. The next stop will be the Ceramic Mosaic Mural, the longest and the most colorful street which was built to celebrate 1,000 years of civilization in Hanoi. Keep moving to Long Bien Bridge with its old rustic beauty. Your next scenic spot will be West Lake with the panoramic view of the biggest lake in the city combined with oldest Buddhist temple, the Tran Quoc Pagoda. After that, you will pass by Ho Chi Minh Complex with the noble, sacred mausoleum and the ancient One Pillar Pagoda. Last stop will be the Train street with the train track and coffee shops along the two sides. You can capture some ashtonishing photos here. Some destinations may change or close due to particular reason (weather, holiday,...), but we assure to give you the best photos.

Our guide HA was very kind and was with us all the time taking pictures and explaining the different places we visited. Finally we opted for the car service ($10 supplement for the two of us) and it was recommended. Many places in a short time but well seen! 100% recommended!!!

LOVED my guide and LOVED the motorbike experience. Train Street was a total highlight and guide timed our arrival perfectly for the pass-by of the train! What was a little off was the actual tour compared to the description. There was LOTS of time spent making us walk around the attractions especially Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, Pagoda, Cathedral and Temple. It’s supposed to be an Instagram-type overview tour but soooo much time was spent parking and walking through every little inch of each site. It just wasn’t necessary to spend sooo much time on each location, and many more sites could have been covered in the 3-1/2 hours. Overall though a good value just not exactly as described.
