The new tours, which were launched on Wednesday, take foreign and domestic tourists along 28 streets in the Old Quarter, visiting historical sites, vestiges and old architecture to give participants an insight into local history and culture and the life of people in the area.
The new tours also visit traditional handicraft artisans, travel along the Old Quarter's traditional trade streets and highlight the cuisine and cultural life of the area.
Electric cars have been used for tours in the Old Quarter since 2010. They have served many tourists, with 30 per cent of tour participants being foreigners, according to Do Xuan Thuy, director of the Dong Xuan Company, which operates Old Quarter tours and services.
