We were in Hanoi for only one day and this was a good way to see all the sights of Hanoi. Whilst fast paced the tour was still enjoyable. I give only four stars as I feel the tour guide could have had a bit more patience and empathy for other group members.

Our very kind guide came to pick us at our hotel and then we walked around old hanoi with her. We visited an old house, a temple, the lake and the french quarter. Our guide told us about hanoi history but also about the culture of vietnamese people. It was very nice and interesting to discuss with her and learn more about her life here. I would highly recommand !

Great tour to get a good glimpse of the city. Adorable guide who even taught us to cross the streets (which is not necessarily easy here). If you have a choice, choose the museum option. The ceramic village option is really dispensable and feels a little tourist trap ... other than that, great!
