Highlights

"Last week an auction sale took place at the National Museum of Vietnamese History in Hanoi. Among other items an old lot dating back from the Indochinese period was sold.

The pile of documents used to belong to a French archaeologist named Jean Caro, who lived in Hanoi until his death in 1951. He was a member of the Archaeological Society of Indochina. The pile of documents has little interest except for one letter that Jean Caro seems to have written the day prior to his death and which clearly mentions the Seal of Emperor Lý Thái Tổ, a mythical artifact that local people hold in high regard…"

A combination of a life-sized investigation, an original city-tour and a treasure hunt, this tour invites you to follow in the footsteps of a colonial archaeologist in search of a lost imperial seal.

This half-day excursion has been specially designed for independent travelers keen to discover the city by themselves. The scenario will lead visitors to some of Hanoi best-kept secrets: century-old temples and pagodas, traditional shops and hidden lanes.

This tour is also a great opportunity to meet locals who will interact with you all along this scripted walking tour to bring you additional clues and help you solve the mystery of the Seal of the Emperor.
