Couldn’t have been a more perfect introduction to Hanoi. Hoan was sweet and smart and great company. From 6-9 we walked and talked AND ATE great food. I am here for 4 days. I will definitely call on them again

Had a full day tour with a local student tour guide who is quite new, hence, might not be familiar with certain attractions/ locations. Flexible to customise the locations we wanted to go.

Go to their website, hanoifreetourguides to setup an appt. It’s a non-profit group run by students. Although, it’s says free, you should at least make a donation (10-20usd) so they can continue to operate.
