Dan the tour guide made it! He was funny and gave lots of extra information about Hanoi & it's history. First stop was for Banh mi - a bread roll/baguette filled with bbq chicken and vegetables - very tasty Then on to a local restaurant through a back alley - you would not know this place exists, but back there is a lovely home/restaurant serving spring rolls (fresh & fried) along with meatballs, noodles and other local food! All served in what feels like someone's dining room at home! After the 2 courses there it's off to the next venue for dessert. We had a lovely sticky rice & ice cream! After that it was of to the home of the famous Egg coffee! Very tasty. Soft drinks, vietnamese coffee and tea were also available, but egg coffee is worth a try! A great way to learn about the food, culture and go to places you didn't even know existed!
the tour was excellent, the boat trip was particularly incredible. Nghia was an excellent guide, he spoke English very well and was extremely helpful, responsible and friendly. Some reviews comment on not having much time but that is the nature of a one day trip that is 100km out of a busy city. Definitely worth it if you have day to spare :)
Enjoyed the biking and the steep hike (view was worth it)! The boat ride, not so much - around 1.30hrs sitting under the sun. It was pretty hot so make sure you bring a hat and sunblock. Overall, it was good. Our tour guide Zuy (Frank) was knowledgable and fun. He adjusted the itinerary that fit to our liking :)
This is a must do activity when in Hanoi! Do not miss it! The view after climbing 500 steps is just unparalleled and beautiful!! The 1 hour boat ride though the green fields surrounding by hills is just splendid! Highly highly recommended activity!! Our guide Mr Kay (Mr K?) is just awesome!
The overall experience was great but the fact several people didnt care about punctuality compromised to enjoy with better time each location. We felt the guide was afraid to call attention to everybody as he worried the lack of tourism due to Covid-19 in the past few months.
