You can certainly do this by yourself. We chose a half day city tour that included the prison and other important landmarks in Hanoi. The benefit was that we had an English speaking guide who was very knowledgeable and made sure we didn’t miss important points or photo opportunities. Also included a great lunch and due to time of year, an air conditioned car which was a blessing.
