Everything you need to know about Hanoi's main landmarks. Guide explained everything about the city and about the Viet culture including a lot of random unrelated wuestion that came from my tour colleagues. The next day even though we wanted to visit any other landmarks by ourselves ..we realised that the tour covered everything important so there were no other objectives left for us to visit which we haven't already seen. The puppet show was a nice finish to the tour and I have considered it some sort of conclusion for all you witnessed and learned during the tour.

We had a great time with Fifi and Alex. They showed us the most interesting places in Hanoi in historical and cultural terms. They didn't rush us, we had time for photos they took of us. Riding a scooter was an interesting experience and at the same time we felt very safe. Historical knowledge was completely sufficient for us and not overloaded. They answered all our additional questions in an interesting way with a smile. Super guides

Very good lunch. Lots of places. The really nice extra is puppet show. We had only one day in Hanoi and it was really good tour to see important buildings.

really fun wandering down dark corridors to find some of the best hidden foods of Vietnam.

Great way to cover most of Hanoi in a day, and see the sights
