When I first arrived in Hanoi, I was overwhelmed by the busy traffic and chaotic-ness of Hanoi city. I didn’t dare to do much so I booked a private tour. My guide Anne is superb! I really enjoy the chat and cultural interactions with her. Being a foodie, Anne has recommended me to the local food scene which completely changed my view of the beautiful Hanoi! Would definitely recommend Anne if this is your first time to Hanoi and wants to get a great overview of the old city. Anne is a great ambassador of Hanoi! A small feedback for the tour provider. Would suggest to provide full description of the tour, i.e. walking tour, only covering the old quarter etc. Nonetheless I still have great fun thanks to Anne! Definitely a 5 stars experience for me ;)

Very interesting tour with a very prepared guide, highly recommended!

We had a few hours to spend in Hanoi and we chose this tour to see as many things as possible. The Hoa guide was very good, he accompanied us through the super-busy streets of the old quarter, explaining to us in good English everything we saw and answering all the questions thoroughly. She was also very helpful in helping us with other things that were not about the tour, very good Hoa and absolutely recommended the tour !!

The guide was very friendly and very flexible. We were able to have a good conversation with him in English and learned so much about the country and its people.
