Is cheaper to buy the 2 day tour in Hanoi on the street?

Hi. Just want to know if the online prices are similar to prices offer at hotels and tour kiosks in Hanoi. Can I get like a last minute deal if I look the day before? Thanks

Booking online costs more than doing it locally.

For example, I did a full day cruise around Lan Ha bay, and a trek in the national park on Cat Ba island. Booked through my hotel and paid half of what they are advertised online.

Is it possible to book a few days before for a party of 8 people. Or is it better to book in advance?

We booked our cruise a couple of days before after talking to many agencies in the Old Quarter. Yes, it is cheaper but be careful and check out what it includes. We were quoted a price which included $20 for transport by bus to H Bay and back again. It was easy to get the agency to discount the $20

The transport by bus was already included in the trip. They wanted to see if they could hustle an extra $20!
