Old & French Quarter Private Walking Tour (Half Day)

Pick-up Our tour guide will pick you up at your hotel and start the walking tour to discover the charm of the Old & French Quarter.
Heritage House To get a better idea of the layout of tube-houses, pop into the beautifully restored Heritage House (sometimes called “Memorial House”). There’s usually a volunteer on hand to show you through the various rooms and courtyards, who will point out the elegant carvings on the doors and balustrades, as well as examples of traditional fine arts and handicrafts such as ceramics and silk paintings on display. You might also see a calligrapher practicing his art in a corner or a seamstress working on an embroidered painting. Some items are on sale, and might make a distinctive souvenir.
Bach Ma Temple The Bach Ma Temple, built during the reign of Emperor Ly Thai To in the 11th Century, is the oldest of its kind and an important structure to Vietnamese religion. Visiting the temple is possible, appropriate clothing is required to offer respect to the monks residing in the temple.
House No.48 Hang Ngang Street In late August 1945, inside the house No 48 Hang Ngang street, Hanoi, President Ho Chi Minh drafted the Declaration of Independence giving birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. Historical objects and evidence associated with President Ho Chi Minh remain intact.
Dong Xuan market If you’re looking for a market, look no further than Dong Xuan Market. This is Hanoi’s answer to the Ben Thanh market in Saigon, and it is the oldest traditional market in the capital. Like most markets in Southeast Asia, the ground floor hosts a wet market selling mostly meat, fish and flowers. Upstairs is where you’ll find any number of products – from t-shirts and handbags to electronic goods and handicrafts – and you can get great value wholesale prices.
Hoan Kiem Lake & Ngoc Son Temple Located right in the center of the Old Quarter, Hoan Kiem is one of Vietnam’s most iconic lakes. Its calming waters and natural beauty surround Turtle Tower, which sits elegantly in the middle of the lake. Towards the side is Ngoc Son Temple, an 18th-century pagoda accessible by Huc bridge, a beautiful red and wooden footbridge. The temple is dedicated to military leader Tran Hung Dao, who fought off the mighty Mongol invaders in the 13th century. Take a stroll around the lake and find yourself a cafe where you can sit and watch the lake’s beautiful colours and street performances. This is best enjoyed on weekends from 7 pm Friday to 12 pm Sunday when vehicles are banned, leaving pedestrians with the rare opportunity to rule the streets. Hoan Kiem lake, also known as the ‘restored sword’ lake, is famed amongst Vietnamese people. Legend has it that a turtle gave Le Loi, an ancient warlord, a magical sword that he used to defeat the invading Chinese Ming dynasty, before returning it to its rightful owner, the dragon king.
