What To Expect

Hanoi Free Tour Guides - Private Tours
08 am :  Our car & guide pick you up at your hotel for Hanoi City Tour.

To begin our trip, we visit Ho Chi Minh Complex: Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum, Museum, and his house – on – stilts, pond and garden, and the Presidential palace while learning about his life and revolutionary activities.

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is an important historical attraction of Hanoi, known for honoring the national hero : President Ho Chi Minh. This is the place where visitors can express their admiration and gratitude towards the common father of Vietnamese who has led the country to independence and reunification.

On the way out visit One Pillar Pagoda. One Pillar Pagoda is a historic Buddhist temple in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. As you visit Hanoi, you may come to various other monuments, parks and historical places. Yet, the One-Pillar Pagoda reflects the architectural splendour that the country has grown.

Around 11:00:Arrive at the Temple of Literature - the first Royal National university in Vietnam - to learn more about education in Vietnam since 1000 years ago until recent history.

12:00: Lunch time at local restaurant, enjoy Vietnamese traditional cuisine with a variety of food.

13.00: Continue to visit the interesting Pagoda :Tran Quoc Pagoda is the oldest of its kind in Hanoi, dating back to the 6th century during the reign of Emperor Ly Nam De Dynasty (544 - 548). The Buddhist shrine has undergone several changes throughout the years, particularly its renaming from An Quoc to Tran Quoc (protecting the country) by Emperor Le Huy Tong in the 17th century. 

15:10: Visit Hoan Kiem Lake (Restored Sword lake) and Ngoc Son Temple.

Hoan Kiem Lake is considered the center of Hanoi, not only physically but also symbolically. Hoan Kiem lake is still a pride of all Hanoians and the center for any distance measurement. Nowadays, it’s still a gathering place yet new Hanoians may live too far to count their distance to the lake. Still, as you walk by, you will be able to witness the pace of life in this peculiar city.

Ngoc Son Temple is Hanoi's most visited temple which sits on a small island in the northern part of Hoan Kiem Lake, connected to the lakeshore by an elegant scarlet bridge, constructed in classical Vietnamese style

15:35: Take an 35 to 40 minutes walking  tour around the Old quarter to discover the streets.

16:30: Return to your hotel. Finish your tour!
