Hanoi City Tour

Visit Hanoi's highlights

Our full day tour of Hanoi includes some of the city's most famous sights.

Start with a morning visit to the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum (closed on Monday, Friday and during the months of September and October) and his former residence (closed on Monday and Friday) followed by the unique One-Pillar Pagoda and the Temple of Literature, known as the first university of Vietnam and built more than 1,000 years ago. 

As you continue your tour you will have the opportunity to visit one of the following museums, the Fine Arts Museum, Vietnam National Museum of History, War Museum, Museum of Ethnology or Hoa Lo Prison Museum.

After lunch, enjoy a leisurely one-hour cyclo tour through Hanoi where you can visit the beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake and Ngoc Son Temple.

Hoan Kiem Lake was already considered the most beautiful lake in Hanoi when Ngoc Son Temple was built on an island in the 19th century.

Initially, the temple was called Ngoc Son Pagoda and was later renamed Ngoc Son Temple, since temples are dedicated to saints. Saint Van Xuong, considered to be one of the brightest stars in Vietnam's literary and intellectual circles, was worshipped there along with other National heroes.
