Hanoi City with new and old friends
Dec. 2019 • Friends
When you travel half way around the world you hoped to be guided by the best and treated like family. Our guide Toan was amazing to say the least. He connected with all the guests. His knowledge was broad and he made us feel safe. Having traveled to South East Asia before I’d recommend our tour company to make your visit to Hanoi special.

Great Hanoi City Tour
Dec. 2019 • Solo
I normally pass on tours and explore on my own but I'm very happy I opted to take this tour. Our guide,Toan, was exceptional in his knowledge and expertise in educating us on the intimate details of Hanoian history, culture and society. His english was perfect and he had great patience and sense of humor that made for a great day. Thank you Toan!

Ethnology Museum was interesting
Oct. 2019
Our tour guide was Toan. Toan was extremely helpful and friendly. He speaks fluent English. We visited several places: Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Temple of Literature, Ethnology Museum, Lacquer shop and Pagado.

We wished we had more time at the Ethnology Museum, we could have spent at least 3 hours there because it was fascinating learning about the different tribes in Vietnam. Lunch was delicious. If we were to visit Hanoi again, we would probably just take a taxi ride to the museum and spend the whole day there by ourselves.

If we were to do this tour again, my partner and I would probably opt for a private tour of 2-4 people. We had around 16 people in our group which meant we had to wait for others and had less time at each place. Nevertheless, we had the opportunity to meet tourists from other countries.

We participated in two other tours whilst we were in Hanoi and hands down, Toan was the best tour guide of them all! Thank you Toan for such an amazing day.

Very good day with Tony
We had a very good day tour with Tony, he was very knowledgeable about everything we visited. Always ready with a background story to give context to the sights we were visiting, providing is with insights not only into traditional Vietnamese culture but also modern day practises. We had been in Hanoi for 5 days before going on the tour, mainly in the old town, but thanks to this tour we got to see a bit more of the modern day Hanoi and learn about the modern history as well. Oh and the food we had for lunch was absolutely delicious.

The most interesting in Hanoi in one day - without stress!
Oct. 2019
This minibus tour is ideal for travellers who can spare only one day to explore Hanoi. Our excellent guide gave us a lot of information, but in a manner that was never made us tired. We had never any feeling of being pushed around, and we experienced a personal care for every member of the group, A very good local lunch was also included in the price, which could not scare anybody away!
