The start is early - around 6am on a Sunday morning, however for $1 anything is worth trying. Guide is very helpful, telling us lots of little bits of info about life in Hanoi for the locals and speaks good English. We did about 5km walk through streets of the old quarter and then a lap around the lake. After that we went down a side street for breakfast. Guide gives you a huge choice of food to choose from, but only wants you to choose either beef or chicken pho. It was so hot and humid so we decided to give the breakfast a miss. For $1 it is worth doing, if only to listen to what he tells you about cost of living, education system in Vietnam, lifestyle for the locals. The actual walk you can do yourself at a better time and more leisurely pace. If you do take this tour, try and be generous and give more than the small asking price, if your budget permits.
