Steve (and his driver) took us on a great excursion to Hanoi our second day in Halong Bay. All of our stops were interesting (well except for seeing the whole roasted dogs in the market which were highly disturbing--but that wasn't Steve's fault). Lunch in the Old Quarter was fantastic. Very pleasant day. Highly recommend the tour.
