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.

When I booked through Viator.com I wanted a small group tour. Well that is not what we got, 17 is not a small group. Several tour part were supposed to be included such as How Chi Minh mausoleum, the ho chi Minh museum were not available. I guess we went to the ho chi minh palace we could see it from outside the gate. Well if I would have know I would have cancelled or not booked at all. I personally was not overjoyed will the city tour. We ended up going to a ceramic shop and another selling lacquer painting . This was all to entice tourist to buy. These places were not on the itinary. The guide was good and seemed to know a lot about some of the sites. Oh by the way pick up was supposed to be at our hotel but they forgot and had to send a separate vehicle for us. I would not recommend a tour from this group.

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.

Excellent tour! I only had one day in Hanoi and this tour took me to the best highlights of the city. I saw a lot and loved it all. The lunch, included, was wonderful and a great introduction to the Vietnamese cuisine.

Dear OnAir762430, We are glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. A city break is designed for those who either first came to Hanoi or had tight time in Vietnam. Most of top-rated attractions and landscapes are shown off. Thank you for coming to Hanoi, Vietnam. Thanks a lot for your nice words. There is still room for improvement in our service. Happy to serve kind guests like you. Thank you very much. Jason Nguyen. From Gray Line Halong Cruise with LOVE.

A good tour of the major tourist sites, with a nice lunch included. The morning for us was a drive to the Ho chi Mihn Mausoleum (remind to take t shirt or a scarf to cover your shoulders/legs otherwise no entry) the West Lake and a visit to the Tran Quoc Pagoda, then the French Quarter including the one pillar pagoda and on to the lacquer ware factory shop, then lunch.
The guide (Thry) was knowledgeable although her English wasn't wonderful as her pronunciation on some words required a little effort. She was very friendly and seemed genuine.
Lunch was nice food in a pleasant hotel.
All in all, yes I'd recommend this tour, the guide was knowledgeable and friendly and if as we did, you have this tour on your first full day it gives you an insight into what you want to spend more time on yourself.

This tour is great for people who want to get to know the sights in the city. From the Hi Chi Minh mausoleum to the "Hanoi Hilton", the museum of ethnology, the palace and oldest university and several pagodas. You get to see it all on this tour. Would recommend this to every body.
