“Excellent trip in Hanoi's Old Quarter”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We almost enjoyed one day trip around Hanoi, after some attractions nearby, the guide took us back the main streets(old streets) in Hanoi, it was extremely crowded but the guide got the flag on his hand, so we could queue one by one easily. Some streets with first name "hang" like merchant or item those sold buy people, maybe Silver or Coal. We booked our trip with Customized tour Company(customizedtour.com) was best value and would like recommend.

“The Old Quarter”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Great atmosphere. Busy, crowded, noisy, a bit grotty, but that's part of its charm. Crossing the roads is a challenge but it's good practice for when you have to cross the wider streets outside the old quarter. Plenty of shopping but be ready to haggle.
