The Experience

Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam with over a thousand years of history, is considered as the cradle of Vietnamese culture lying on the right bank of the Red River.

Looking to orient yourself in this city? On our tour, we simply set you up with local university students who are experts at navigating their beloved hometown and you can simply request where you would like to go. This is a great way for the students to gain some experience while sharing their unique culture with people from around the world. It’s like having a new friend to show you around, so why not?

Recommended sites: Temple of Literature, Hanoi Train Street, Old Quarter, Ngoc Son Temple, Ma May Old House (a traditional Vietnamese house) and other hang-out spots.

Detailed itinerary

8:00 AM - 12:00 PM / 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Our student guide(s) will pick you up at your accommodation by scooter, taxi, or on foot. It's up to you to choose your mode of transportation, but we highly recommend hopping on the back of their motorbike for a real Hanoi experience.This can be done in the morning hours from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM, or after lunch from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Our guide(s) will take you to most of the famous tourist spots such as the Temple of Literature and locations around the Old Quarter.

If you have already been to these locations, then simply tell our guides where else you would like to visit or what interests you in Hanoi, and they will work with you to see how you can make the most out of your time.


This is a donation-based tour that benefits the students directly. Guests will directly pay for all expenses during the tour. However...

  1. For the safety of our students, a non-refundable verification charge of USD1 will be required for each booking. All net proceeds will go towards training activities to prepare the students to be tour-ready.

  2. For those choosing the motorbike option, we recommend a minimum donation of USD5 to be given directly to the students at the end of the tour to cover motorbike expenses. It's not an obligation but we would hate to see any students incurring out-of-pocket expenses to provide you with an awesome time.

We had a lovely local tour with Quang. Quang is knowledgeable, energetic and funny. Quang showed us a few interesting places in the city and shared their histories. He also brought us to a hidden cafe which served the best egg coffee I've ever had!Overall it was a wonderful tour and I'd recommend Onetrip to anyone who wants an easy and fun tour around Hanoi.

What an amazing afternoon! I had a great time on this tour. My guide, Quang, braved the cold and rain to give me an insider's perspective on Hanoi and Vietnamese culture. Quang was very knowledgeable about history, as well as a skilled driver. He took me to places I would not have explored on my own. He also treated me to a traditional foure performance, he is an accomplished musician and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour, you will have the time of your life!

The tour was am amazing, since we got the opportunity to get another view of the city. The stories of the one trip guides help us to understand.However we recommend them to be more clear regarding the expenses of the tour regarding cost of entering to museums.The schedule was not al all clear regarding how many minutes do we spend in each place.They were really funny and friendly we had a great time with them :)
