Full description
Tour Hanoi in a vintage GAZ-69, the classic Army jeep from the 50s and 60s during the Soviet Era. Go on a journey through the city’s many neighborhoods and get to know the Hanoi of the past and of today with a private or shared guide. Start off with pickup at your hotel or at a meeting point in Hanoi Old Quarter. Get a safety briefing from your guide before driving off on an adventure. Begin by diving straight into the labyrinth of backstreets and tiny alleyways to find out what everyday life in Hanoi is really like. Get an honest and authentic insight into the good, the bad, and the weird sides of the city. Next, drive past and visit the must-see sights, including Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, the centuries-old Buddhist and Taoist temples of Tran Quoc, the Temple of Literature, the historical train-street, the enchanting French Quarter, the Old Quarter, the romantic West Lake and Hoan Kiem Lake, Hanoi Opera House and the famous Long Bien Bridge. On the final part of your Hanoi Jeep tour, escape the bustling city to the peaceful and alluring villages around West Lake and Truc Bach Lake. Experience first-hand how such contrasting lifestyles can co-exist between the city center and the outskirts. Find hidden tranquil spots beyond the thousands of skyscrapers. Along the way, stop at local restaurants, eateries and food stalls to savor the tastiest dishes Hanoi has to offer. Sample authentic dishes with secret recipes that have been passed down through generations.

The tour guide Mai, did an excellent job in showing us the hidden and touristy part of Hanoi. Not only she made us feel welcomed, she also had an extensive knowledge in the history of the area. It was a great experience for everyone, as the activities was fun and exciting.

Our tour guide was Chris aka Hoang, and our driver was Hoan. They had another small girl assist in the tour. They all worked in synchrony to make the Jeep tour so fun! Great, safe driver. Chris had a lot of interesting information about the history of Hanoi, very well versed. Chris and small girl I forgot her name, both made sure we got a ton of pictures of our tour. I recommend it! We got a full meal at Hidden Gem Cafe and also ice cream and coffee.
