Surpeb sightseeing tour

Best tour I have been on in years! Thank you Minh for such an amazing morning to top off our holiday in Hanoi. The food was amazing, our safety was always considered and the best part was seeing all the sights we wouldn’t normally have access to in tour cars. I highly recommend this tour if you are in Hanoi.

Excellent tour operator

I highly recommend the tour which is within a day. Although the weather was hot, our tour guide made us feel worth the while as his explanation and tour around the lake, temple of literature,Ba Đinh Square,Temple of the Jade Mountain and water puppet show were precise and really meaningful. Would love to come back again soon

Lovely half day tour in Hanoi

Hanoi is really beautiful and we loved the city with its cultural places to visit and also local food. Exploring the old town and tasting local dishes was great fun. A nice day with our guide as he was very friendly and helped us a lot during the days we stayed in Hanoi.
