What people are saying about Dong Bang Song Hong

We had one of the best experience in our whole trip to Vietnam. Our guides Ryan and Chris were super friendly and helpful, they even agreed to do this tour on motobikes upon our request (even though it's not supposed to be a motorbike tour, but my wife was pretty tired and didnt want to walk). We had 5 stops at different places around old quarter of Hanoi and tried different types of food from BBQ to chicken soup to ice cream...The guys were were knowlegable and informative, we learned lots of interesting facts about the city and its people. At the end they even agreed to take us for a ride around West Lake (aka Expat district) even though our time was over. Once again - I higly recommend this tour and these guys. Thank you very much!!!!

We were with Jenny the whole evening and really had a lot of fun! We were picked up from the hotel on time and felt very well cared for in the hustle and bustle of the city. The small hidden corners were definitely worth a visit, the food was just great and also suitable for the European taste. We had a really nice chat and had a very nice and funny evening with very tasty food!

We were a group of 5 including our guide Kim and had a good time. Kim showed us really good places to eat. She told us things about the city and history. My favourite was the Chicken NoodIes Soup. I can recommend the tour.
