I had a great time on this tour walking through the old quarter. The tour guide, Mai is a college student and really knew her stuff! Mai was a good reference point for any queries I had and even helped me to buy some local coffee. Recommend this tour if you like taking the back streets and walking around to explore a new place.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

The guide was a student majoring in tourism and was very knowledgeable about the areas included in the tour. He also explained many of the legends and myths associated with the sites. Additionally, he provided insight and information into current Vietnamese culture. Very worthwhile activity!

Our tour guide Quyen was fantastic. She was informative but easy going about sharing her knowledge so it didn't sound like a memorized spiel. We really enjoyed her company.

The overall experience was great too. Booking with Viator was easy and everything worked out very well.

The two guides were excellent and very keen that we should enjoy the tour. We did feel a coffee stop would have been good as it was a long morning without a break.

I had an enjoyable time wandering around the Old Quarter, stopping at a few places though some were closed, sampling a bit of local food and drink.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2016

Tour leaves a lot to be desired..,....,could have just set off ourselves....and had a meal with the money.think walking tours are a rip off...,sorry Ro one too was pretty ordinary .
No plan even when met,just head off yourselves after asking hotel staff.love Viator as a rule and use it always......no more walking tours.
