    What to Expect
    Start the day with a morning pickup from your Hanoi hotel. You’ll transfer from there to Ba Dinh Square, the location of the mausoleum for 20th-century Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh.

    Take a peek inside the bare-bones cottage where Ho Chi Minh lived, and learn about the life and work of this famous Vietnamese figure during a visit to the Ho Chi Minh Museum. Depending on daily opening times you’ll also get to take a look inside the granite mausoleum of this iconic individual.

    Continue your trip by exploring the charming architecture of the Vietnamese capital, stopping to admire the French colonial style former Governor’s Residence. You’ll also stop by the One Pillar Pagoda, a religious structure that dates back to the 11th century. Learn about the founding of this famous Hanoi building by Emperor Ly Thanh Tong, and discover its role in Vietnamese education of the country’s aristocracy.

    Take a break mid-day for an included lunch, before continuing to the Hanoi Old Quarter. Explore the bustling streets of this historic neighborhood aboard a rickshaw, learning about the streets dedicated to specific trades like Sugar Street, Paper Street, and Tin Street. As you ride, you’ll also encounter a charming collection of ancient temples and colonial-era homes scattered among the area’s historic blocks.

    End the day by enjoying a performance of a traditional Vietnamese water puppet show, offering a chance to learn about the rituals and customs of the country’s rural residents. When the show ends, receive a ride back to your Hanoi hotel.
