Private Half Day Hanoi City Tour

This half-day private tour takes in a selection of Hanoi highlights, including the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Museum, while leaving you plenty of spare time to explore further on your own.

If your time in Hanoi is limited then this private half-day tour for just you and your party is a perfect way of seeing a selection of the city's top highlights.

Your day starts by visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Museum to explore the architectural and historical aspects of Uncle Ho’s final resting-place before moving on to the One Pillar Pagoda (Mot Cot).

According to legend, the pagoda’s shape was inspired by the lotus flower and the structure has become an important symbol for the people of Hanoi.

Continue to the Temple of Literature, Quoc Tu Giam, which was Vietnam’s first university and boasts charming gardens and well-preserved architecture before stopping at The Opera House.

Home to the wonderful Hoan Kiem Lake, take a walk across the famous red wooden bridge to visit Ngoc Son Temple which is set on a tiny island - a great place for a memorable photo to finish the tour in style!
