Fantastic tour of this wonderful city - full of ancient history. Our tour guide was very informative as we toured the pagodas and other sights of the city. Highly recommend this tour!

I'm really glad I did this tour. You see many of the main sights that would have taken too long to have walked (Hanoi can be overwhelming!) and the tour guide Ele was really great. Super informative and knowledgeable, she made the trip worthwhile.

An absolute must to kickstart the Hanoi experience. I was fortunate enough to be in quite a small group of 7 and our tour guide - Thuy - was amazing; very informative, funny and utterly adorable, really gave it that edge. Loved it.

Response from Gray_Line_Cruise, Manager at Full-Day Hanoi City Tour
Responded Sep 6, 2019
Dear Liliosaandres, We really feel sorry for what happened to you. It seems to be that most things went against your expectation. However, a group of 17 passengers for a city break was small enough to feel comfortable, especially with a joint tour. You and we have different definitions of how many people a small group would be. Sincerely sorry for that. We were not alone. Other tour operators had to give out alternatives in that day, because some attractions were in maintenance time. After all, you felt uncomfortable. We deeply apologize for that. Thank you for using our service. Jason Nguyen. From Gray Line Halong Cruise with LOVE.
