Hanoi is too far from Halong Bay where the ship stops. The journey to Hanoi was well over 4 hours including a tender transfer fro ship to shore. This was unacceptable and not mentioned in the brochure.

Second time we road the cable car and ferris wheel on our own. We then took a taxi to the far side and did the very expensive mall and walked along the water.

Hanoi was a great tour including an electric buggy ride through the crowded old city area, visits to the Hanoi Hilton, and to Uncle Ho's mausoleum and home/office. Trouble was the traffic. We were 2 hours late back and the ship had to delay sailing. Bit unsettling, but that was why we selected a ships tour! Read Less

Long (3.5 hours each way) transfer but we knew that before planning anything. Hanoi was like stepping into a different world - the hustle, bustle, traffic and atmosphere just has to be experienced.

Hanoi is a L-O-N-G way from the Port. A 3 1/2 hour Bus Ride each way with only about 4 hours in Hanoi itself. Interesting but a lot more neglected, run down and dirty than Saigon in the south. The Bus ride is all on a secondary 2 lane road through every little town. Seems the Communist Government can't afford to build a Highway? Read Less

Excellent tour guide who explained much about vietnamese culture. The links to the Vietnam war could not be missed, but were covered in a factual rather than triumphant manner. The old town was an astonishing mix of people and motorbikes - an experience that is not available in the west. Ho Chi Minh memorial was very impressive - but one cannot avoid wondering about the cost to an essentially poor country. It is easy to describe as unspoilt and charming, which it was - but it was also obviously fairly poor and I suspect the people living there might prefer a liitle less charm and a little more prosperity.

Hanoi is a three and a half hour journey from the ship docked in Halong Bay but most people visiting Vietnam would regard Hanoi as a "must see" The journey is broken up by a stop half way at a huge shopping warehouse selling everything from silk to marble statues. The problem was that the coach was there for 45 minutes on the way to Hanoi and 30 minutes on the way back. Comfort breaks were necessary and toilets very clean but these have to be paid for and the souvenir shops provide for this. Hanoi is interesting and to see how Ho Chi Minh lived was enlightening. The City is very clean and lunch in a local restaurant very good. Criticism was that there was not enough time to explore the shops but we were told by our guide that it was because he needed "keep us together" as we could easilly get lost. This was not really true and some of us felt that they wanted us only to see what they were allowed to show us. There is a much stronger feeling of a communist country in Hanoi than Saigon Read Less
