Hanoi Arrival

When you arrive at the Noi Bai International airport you'll be met at the baggage claim by our friendly guide. Just look for the sign with our Asia Tour Advisor logo and your name. We'll get you to your hotel and see that you're comfortable, plus we'll give you an introduction to the city at the same time. Then the rest of the day is yours to settle in, relax, and explore the area.

Hanoi has many great restaurants with French, Vietnamese and international cuisines available. Ask your guide for personal recommendations.

Hanoi is Vietnam’s capital city and home to seven million people. Traditional and refined with French colonial architecture, tree-lined boulevards, scenic lakes and a bustling Old Quarter, Hanoi has a sophisticated charm. Observe locals practicing Tai Chi by the lake, with barbers and food vendors plying their sidewalk trade.

Hanoi city tour full day

You'll have your breakfast at the hotel and then the local tour guide will pick you up to take you into the capital city of Vietnam. Hanoi is over 1,000 years old and during your day tour you'll get to explore many of its fascinating cultural and historical sites. You'll visit the imposing Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum where the preserved body of “Uncle Ho” has been laid to rest, the delicate One Pillar Pagoda, Tran Quoc Temple and the Quan Thanh Pagoda.

After lunch you can go to the Temple of Literature where you'll get to see ancient Vietnamese relics, then take a cyclo tour in 1 hour through the bustling and exciting Old Quarter to explore marketplace shops and foods. You'll end your day with a show at the water puppet theater - a beautifully unique cultural performance from northern Vietnam.

Hanoi – Halong Bay

We'll pick you up in Hanoi by 8:00am and drive through the verdant Red River Delta to make our way to the famous UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay. You'll board a luxury junk ship for an overnight cruise-- while you relax on-board you can marvel at the incredible limestone karsts that jut out of the sea and the thousands of jungle-covered islands that seem to float on the waves. The turquoise waters of the Gulf of Tonkin swirl around hidden grottoes and ancient caves to create an enchanting, timeless world.

We'll serve you a fresh seafood lunch while you sit back and relax as you enjoy the incredible view with a drink in your hand. We'll take you to a traditional fishing village where the locals have created an entire town on the decks of their boats, then you can explore Tien Ong Cave before returning to the cruise for cocktails, canapés, and a spectacular sunset. End your day with a romantic, candlelit dinner.

Halong Bay -  Hanoi –  Hue

Begin the day with a Tai Chi class on deck in the early morning mist or just admire the beautiful scenery as the sun rises over the azure waters. Choose between an excursion to a secluded island with a sandy beach for a swim or join the chef for a cooking demonstration to learn more about Vietnamese cuisine. Enjoy a leisurely brunch while your junk cruises Halong Bay, passing islets and caves as you make your way back to the dock.

Your driver will meet you when you disembark and transfer you to Noi Bai airport for your flight to Hue. When you arrive in Hue we'll pick you up and transfer you to your hotel.

Hue served as an imperial capital to the Nguyen Lords, a feudal dynasty which reigned from the 17th to the 19th century. Despite heavy bombing during the Vietnam-American war, many historic monuments from this period remain, and even though Imperial rule ended more than six decades ago, Hue still bears the marks of its royal past. The city retains its royal charm with its emperors’ tombs, ancient pagodas and the remains of the Citadel.

Hue city tour

You'll begin your day in Hue with a visit to the ruins of the Imperial Citadel, the capital of the Nguyen Dynasty from 1802 to 1945. Then take a bicycle trip through the Old City to Tinh Tam Lake, the ancient gardens of the emperors. In the afternoon you can head to the Mu Pagoda, overlooking the emerald Perfume River. Your last stop will be to explore Khai Dinh's Tomb, a traditional Vietnamese temple with a European touch, making it a particularly unique tomb among the ancestral ruins of ancient Hue. In the evening you can explore the city and its marketplaces on your own.

Hue – Danang - Hoian Tour

You'll have breakfast in your hotel, then have some free time to shop, explore, or just relax. In the afternoon one of our guides will pick you up and take you to Hoi An. On your way you can stop to visit Lang Co Beach, a picturesque fishing village, then drive through the Pass of Ocean Clouds for a stunning panoramic view of the mountains and sea, and make a quick visit to the Cham Museum.
After you arrive in Hoi An you will check into your hotel then have the afternoon to soak up the sun at Cua Dai beach.

Hoi An was a prosperous port from the 16th to 19th centuries trading with merchants from China, Japan, India, Indonesia and Europe who came to buy silk, spices and porcelain. Hoi An’s UNESCO World Heritage Old Quarter is beautifully preserved with ornate pagodas, antique trading houses and old tile-roofed shops. It is a rich architectural fusion of Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and European styles. Many of the historic buildings lining the canals and pedestrian streets have been converted into art galleries, boutique restaurants, bars and cafes. Hoi An is surrounded by attractive countryside with traditional farming and fishing, and by sandy beaches with modern seaside resorts.

Hoian Tour

Breakfast will be served at the hotel and afterwards you'll explore the enchanting time-capsule town of Old Hoi An on a walking tour with your guide. Hoi An was a major sea port in Asia and it resulted in a fusion of style and culture that has been perfectly preserved. Wander traditional Chinese shops, luxurious French homes, and an ancient Japanese bridge. The town is home to silk markets, Vietnamese food stalls, and talented street performers-- all of which are sure to charm you. Then spend the afternoon further exploring the town on your own or head down to Cua Dai Beach to relax.

Hoian Free time

You have the day in Hoian to spend as you choose-- you can head to the beach for a day by the sea or to take part in water sports, or explore the markets.

Asia Tour Advisor is very helpful in emergencies
Reviewed On: Oct 03, 2019 Bernadette Asia Tour Advisor is very helpful in emergenciesUnited Kingdom

Always get your Vietnam tourist VISA letter BEFORE checking in to your flight, or else you will NOT be able to board your flight to Vietnam! This almost happened to my colleague who for some reason did not yet have her letter authorizing her to pickup a VISA on arrival. Just 4 hours before her flight on Friday Saptember 28, I urgently called Ms. Xoa Nguyen of Asia Tour Advisor in Ha Noi for help. Together with her assistance my colleague successfully got her VISA letter emailed to her just minutes before her time to board. Please make sure you get your VISA letter for VISA pickup before your flight. For emergency arrangements, don’t hesitate to call Ms. Xoa 24/7 +84 983 987 883. I myself have used ATA for all my travels to Vietnam (I travel there frequently for business). ATA truly takes care of visitors to Vietnam.

Marvellous Trip

If you think about going to Halong Bay and haven’t chosen a company yet, make sure you choose Asia Tour Advisor! The service is excellent (for visa arrangement as well as for tours) and the staff if very helpful and friendly. They arranged a two day/one night trip to Halong Bay for us and it was worth every dollar! The boat we stayed on was awesome, clean, spacious and the staff there very friendly, attentive and kind! The food, especially the multi course evening dinner, was excellent! We were fully satisfied and therefore I can highly recommend booking with them 🙂

This had been our first trip to Vietnam and from the moment I made contact with Asia Tour Advisor until the moment my family and I were dropped off at the airport for the trip home, our experience with Asia Tour Advisor was excellent. The initial booking and subsequent arrangements organised via email were professionally and efficiently handled by Ms. Huyen and her recommendation for our accommodation was excellent. Our guide, Mr. Tung, was outstanding. At no time, as a family, we were ever dissappointed. The children had a fantastic time, so much so they have asked to go back to Vietnam again. The holiday was a great experience with many wonderful memories. I would have no hesitation in recommending Asia Tour Advisor to any family thinking about organising a holiday to Vietnam.

I love Hoian
Reviewed On: Aug 20, 2016 Samuel Da Costa I love HoianUnited States

As part of my summer vacation I booked a tour in Vietnam. I wanted some free time but also some structure, so I decided to take a 9 day tour, then do my own thing after that. I worked out pretty good. This is a good tour run by Asia Tour Advisor, it was just what I needed. It seems like every destination has to begin with the letter H on this tour. Hanoi, Halong bay, Hue, and Hoian. I had so much fun in Hoian, that was my favourite. I hired a motorbike and went off on my own on my free day. That was just the best. The departure from Danang at the end came round too fast. I really enjoyed my time in Vietnam.

We only used Asia Tour Advisor – and Risa specifically – to book a night on Halong Bay, flight to Danang and a day Hanoi Street Food tour. All were excellent. Risa stayed in contact, replied promptly, was flexible with changes and was generally AMAZING in every interaction we had with her. Really excellent service. Thanks Risa you really helped make our trip as fabulous as it was.


This trip had a little of everything
Reviewed On: Nov 05, 2014 Steve Calker This trip had a little of everythingUnited States

Anyone looking for a really great tour that combines culture and R&R then this is the one for you. It was fascinating to visit Hanoi and take in the sights. The Ho Chin Minh Mausoleum was a strange and thought provoking place. To see the most famous of all Vietnamese people lying in state was unusual to say the least. Halong Bay was restful and beautiful, Hué was full of culture and Hoi An was possible the sweetest little town I’ve ever been to. Credit to the Tour company and their amazing guides.
