What people are saying about Hanoi
Great way to experience Hanoi in ways most would not on their own
We had a great afternoon with Alex as our guide. We tried food from small outlets we would have never dared to try on our own. We also walked though areas we would otherwise not have discovered. Alex was good at explaining the different foods we tried. Small suggestion for improvement is that we would have appreciated more stories from our guide about Hanoi living and Vietnamese food culture. Explanations were short and factual and in between our guide was a lot on his phone texting. We suspect that part of the challenge is the guide’s limitations expressing himself in English. Overall: if you have the chance, go ahead and book to experience Vietnam Street Food.. just don’t expect a lot of conversation over the hours with your guide.
the guides were very articulate, very fluent in English so that made the tour around the village very understandable. Their service was amazing - especially in terms of their warmth and humour! I really liked how personal the tour was and that the guides made us feel as though we were travelling with familiar friends. The food places they brought us was great too, very glad i could try deserts i haven’t tried before xD Although the tour was a bit pricey, I think it is a pretty good investment for the quality of the service and experience.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had very good English. We were able to try many varieties of street food and learn about the traditional culture and history around them. The puppet show was another great insight into Vietnamese culture, and something very unique we had never experienced before.
“The tour was amazing, our guides, Phoenix and Hoai were great fun, welcoming and very knowledgeable. The whole experience was an absolute, please Would recommend it. Great way to discover some of the hidden gems of Hanoi.”
Van was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and personable. We loved all the food and the restaurant/stall owners were so friendly. The water puppet show was incredible! Such skilled puppeteers and musicians.
