Linh speaks English fluently. His historical knowledge of the dynasties is impressive and he imparts information in an interactive way that is very engaging. The Citadel is a vast site, about 400 acres, sitting inside a 12,500-acre walled enclosure. So it’s not easy to decide what to omit and what to emphasize on a 3-hour tour, but Linh mapped out an itinerary with a thematic through line that made sense and left us wanting to see and know more. I could have easily gone another 3 hours with Linh. Highly recommend!
