Private tour to explore Hanoi pick up from Halong Cruise habour

Hanoi is the most ancient history and beautiful places to get by. Mentioning about Hanoi, what comes first to tourists' mind is the ever first historical University of the capital and also the nation - Van Mieu - Quoc Tu Giam. Besides its foremost meaning, Van Mieu is also the place to worship Confucius, setting doctor steles.
Hanoi is more an antique and peaceful city than a modern one. This might be seen quite clearly when you take a walk around the 36 Old Quarter. This is a typical characteristic of Hanoi with small old streets, tube houses which still remain their shape from 15th century.
