Ho Chi Minh's Hanoi Small-Group Adventure Tour
Seeing the highlights of Hanoi without a guide means you may miss hidden details and the story of Ho Chi Minh, the communist leader who led Vietnam to independence. Visit the sights, uncover their past, and hear Ho Chi Minh’s story from a guide on this small-group, half-day tour. Explore St. Joseph’s Cathedral, Hoa Lo Prison, and more, with lunch, air-conditioned minivan transport, and entrance fees all included.
What to Expect
Greet your guide in central Hanoi and ride an air-conditioned minivan into the bustling streets. En route, listen as your guide talks about Hanoi’s history and Ho Chi Minh, the communist leader who was Vietnam’s president from 1945 to 1969.

Visit the Temple of Literature, founded in 1070 and once the site of a university. Then, continue to a teahouse to sample green teas with snacks, such as green bean cakes, and learn about tea’s role in Vietnamese culture.

Explore Hoa Lo Prison, dubbed the “Hanoi Hilton” by US pilots in the Vietnam War. Hear how prisoners were confined here and tour the cells and exhibitions to learn about their fates.

View 19th-century St. Joseph’s Cathedral, and stroll around Hoan Kiem Lake to see the Huc Bridge and Ngoc Son Temple. Finally, enjoy a local lunch before leaving to continue exploring independently.
