Hanoi City tour with Water Puppet Show $55 each

Water puppetry is a tradition that dates back as far as the 11th century when it originated in the villages of the Red River Delta area of northern Vietnam. Today’s Vietnamese water puppetry is a unique variation on the ancient Asian puppet tradition. The puppets are made out of wood and then lacquered.

Hanoi Street food with water puppet show $55

Hanoi City tour with Cyclo $55

Discover the 36 ancient Streets of Hanoi Old Quarter with its ancient buildings and temples, transparent lakes and old cultural features.

Cruising through one of Hanoi’s most engaging, colourful, and lively neighbourhoods.

Get a relaxing look at Hanoi’s old quarter, the home of traditional Vietnamese culture in Hanoi. The old quarter is, unlike what you may think, a very busy center of trade and life in Hanoi. The old quarter is the place to go if you’re interested in getting a look at the real lifestyle of Hanoians. The 36 streets of the old quarter, marked out in labyrinthine fashion, give the whole experience a somewhat zany twinge, one that many find quite welcome after the cut-and-dry, sanitized effect of many Western cities.

This does not include any transport costs except of course the bicycle tour.

“Tony was polite, very friendly, considerate and professional. He was able to take us to places to eat that we never would have found otherwise. He made great suggestions that I didn’t even know about. I would definitely recommend him for anyone coming to Hanoi” –  Micheal, USA.
