It was a rainy day so we walked about in the rain. Tour was good, tour guide Van was very friendly, informative and accomodating, seeing as we had senior citizens and a newborn in the group.It was cold! 10 degrees out and light rain. Trishaw ride was fun. Lunch was superb. A great tour and a great way to see Hanoi!

Tour was excellent. Tour started on time and tour guide, Long, was very knowledgeable. Driver and the included meal were excellent. We did all the visits that were listed but walked through the old quarter our choice so we could keep Long as our guide rather than taking the cyclo ride. Highly recommended tour of Hanoi.

We had the most wonderful tour guide, Trang. She was delightful, very attuned to the things we were interested in and went to great lengths to ensure we had a wonderful day. The Ho Chi Minh precinct was very interesting and Trang introduced us to some scrumptuous Vietnamese treats. The restaurant where we stopped for lunch was great and we enjoyed the Cyclo tour just as much. We would have loved to steal Trang so she could be our guide for our entire Vietnam adventure.
Absolutely fantastic tour! Picked up...

Our tour guide Huy was awesome. He was very punctual in picking us up and making sure we were comfortable. His English was awesome and was a well seasoned experienced guide. We had an awesome day seeing so much wonderful history we may have missed trying to do this ourselves. He took us to a lovely restaurant for lunch. Only negative was that it was supposed to be included with the tour and they had us pay the bill, but it was excellent dining and for less than 20 dollars for 3 people I am not going to complain. Our guide also wanted to know if there was anything special we wanted to see which was away from the tourist areas. He was happy to take us thru the neighborhoods and local market areas where the local people live each day. That was such a highlight for us. I would highly recommended this company and especially our tour guide to anyone visiting Hanoi. If I could give him 10 stars I would....
