What to expect
  • Hanoi's Historic Sites! Your private English speaking guide will be waiting for you at Cai Lan (Halong) Port or Hai Phong Port with a welcome sign and warm greeting before transferring to an air-conditioned vehicle for an exciting exploration of this fascinating region. Our first stop is to  Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, where we will learn about revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh. There will be an opportunity to take pictures of this historic site! Then, we move to B52 Ho Huu Tiep Lake.  The lake is an eerie reminder of the Vietnam War, where a B-52 bomber was shot down just before the war ended. The wreckage in the middle of this otherwise tranquil lake is a powerful reminder of the human cost of conflict. Traditional Lunch & Sightseeing Vietnam’s capital is renowned for its historical architecture, and South-East Asian, French and Chinese influences can be felt here. A perfect example of this historical architecture is the  perfectly preserved Temple of Literature, which was Vietnam’s first national university.Built in 1070, the Temple of Literature is often considered one of Hanoi’s most attractive landmarks. This building is a perfect example of traditional Vietnamese architecture. Next, we will enjoy a local North Vietnamese lunch before heading to Hoa Lo Museum, also known as Hanoi Hilton. This former prison, used by French colonists for prisoners of war, is one of Hanoi’s most historically significant sites. Explore The Old Quarter Hanoi’s Old Quarter, dating back to the 13th century, is a lively hub with countless stores selling every item imaginable, temples, religious landmarks and hundreds of motorbikes! This exciting, and sometimes overwhelming, labyrinth of ancient streets is a must-see for tourists who want to get a sense of the cultural and historical importance of this fascinating city. To escape the hustle and bustle of the Old Quarter’s madness, we’ll head to Hoan Kiem Lake. This tranquil lake surrounds Ngoc Son Temple which lies majestically on a small island in the centre of the lake. If you would like to explore on your own terms, simply decide a meet up time with your guide and  they will return you to your cruise in plenty of time! Remember, this tour is completely customisable, so you can craft your ideal Hanoi adventure!
