Those who can face an early start will be rewarded on this walking tour of Hanoi with a trip through the winding alleys of the old quarter and its interesting backstreets. Visit the old town, see the beautiful Saint Joseph’s Cathedral and tour the Hoan Kiem Lake area before enjoying a tasty traditional breakfast.

Meet your experienced local guide early in the morning at about 5.30am for this interesting guided tour. We begin with a stroll through the area known as the Old Town. Here, you will learn about the original 36 streets that make up this vibrant destination

Make good use of the quieter than normal streets this early in the morning when you have them largely to yourself. Following your guide through the little passages and passing traditional homes you begin to get a real sense of the Old Hanoi that existed before the invention of the noisy vehicles that usually crowd the area. Learn about the people who still call this bustling quarter their home, as they live the way their family have for generations.

With the roads still quiet we pass the Cathedral of Saint Joseph which towers over the surrounding area in a quite Parisian style, before enjoying a leisurely stroll around the beautiful lake of Hoan Kiem. Take in the views, listen to the birds and watch those trying to keep fit with traditional exercises. If you’re feeling adventurous why not join in?!

We still have time to catch the tail end of a local market which we will do briefly before we pause for a local breakfast of traditional Vietnamese fare, such as some delicious sticky rice and some green tea. Once complete your tour guide will leave you to your own devices in this vibrant city or help you get back to your hotel for a much needed nap.
