Hanoi traffic = late pickup. A number of highlights mentioned at booking while visited were closed for the season, under reconstruction and simply not approached i.e. Ho Chi Minh Museum. Guide apologetic. Temple of Literature a highlight, well worth the visit. One Column Temple not visited. Lunch to savour Vietnamese delicacies was great. Otherwise, value for money somewhat low - sorry.
