    Everything you need to know about Hanoi's main landmarks. Guide explained everything about the city and about the Viet culture including a lot of random unrelated wuestion that came from my tour colleagues. The next day even though we wanted to visit any other landmarks by ourselves ..we realised that the tour covered everything important so there were no other objectives left for us to visit which we haven't already seen. The puppet show was a nice finish to the tour and I have considered it some sort of conclusion for all you witnessed and learned during the tour.

    the guides were very articulate, very fluent in English so that made the tour around the village very understandable. Their service was amazing - especially in terms of their warmth and humour! I really liked how personal the tour was and that the guides made us feel as though we were travelling with familiar friends. The food places they brought us was great too, very glad i could try deserts i haven’t tried before xD Although the tour was a bit pricey, I think it is a pretty good investment for the quality of the service and experience.

Very good lunch. Lots of places. The really nice extra is puppet show. We had only one day in Hanoi and it was really good tour to see important buildings.

Great way to cover most of Hanoi in a day, and see the sights
