The Old Quarter, with its unique architecture from the French colonial times, is the heart of Hanoi and is home to many city highlights. Observe the Dong Xuan Wholesale Market, Joseph Cathedral Church and the Opera House. Take in the beautiful view from Hoan Kiem Lake for the perfect photographs of the city.

Overall rating

I was looking for a course on tea techniques and was happy to find one in Hanoi. The reviews were also positive. Indeed I highly enjoyed this course on tea&coffee practices. The guide was happy to teach, had a really good sense of humour in english, patient and easily responded to my questions. And I liked knowing more about vietnamese culture, daily life. I highly recommend.

The two day cruise in Halong Bay was one of the best things we did in Vietnam. The boat was very nice. The cabins had dark wood and big windows. We also enjoyed the balcony where we took a lot of photos from. After our kajak tour we went in the hot tup and drank some happy hour drinks. The staff was very friendly without being too much.

It s a great tour. You don t want to miss it. Very nice and friendly guides, good hotel with great food and kind staff. The walk is fantastic as the scenery.

Great friendly guide who speaks very good English. Good food and apart from that lots of useful information about Hanoi and Vietnam. Gladly again

Doan was very friendly and enthusiastic. I enjoyed the conversation as much as the tea and coffee. This was the highlight of my trip to Hanoi!
