An excursion from Halong Bay
With its tree-lined boulevards and lakes, a blend of French, Chinese and Vietnamese architecture, Hanoi is the jewel of Asia. This tour takes you through the charming pagodas and the "36 streets and 36 wares" of the fascinating Old Quarter, as well as the impressive Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the ancient Temple of Literature, the Lake of the Restored Sword, One Pillar Pagoda, Hanoi Opera House, etc.
Interestingly, with lots of things to see and a large variety of food to choose from, you will find it difficult to navigate and choose the best ones. My tour also aims to help visitors unveil the secret of the old town through its various tastes and fascinating tradition. Besides, as we journey through the hustling streets, you will immerse into the crazy traffic and learn the way to cross streets confidently.

Tai was amazing!! He took the time to make the tour authentic and we felt like we were given the opportunity to see Ha Long Bay through the eyes of a native. Tai is knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to be sure you are comfortable and enjoying yourself. Highly recommended!
