I really appreciate the students taking time out of their busy schedules, some travelling 45 min by bus to meet total strangers on their day off. I had done a couple of other volunteer tours by now and each experience will depend upon the student. The ones that are working towards a career in tourism will provide more "guide-like" information.... More

We booked in for a tour after seeing the reviews on TA and it definitely didn't disappoint! We were greeted in our hotel lobby by two absolutely lovely students in Hanoi. They took us round the Temple of Literature and were very informative. A really excellent way to see Hanoi and so nice to get to know the people who... More

What a wonderful idea and how well it is executed too. We were greeted by two Hanoi students who studied at the university. They were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and very good company. As I was with my 17 yr old son, we first wanted to know what young people did in Hanoi, where they went etc. So they took us... More

The tour of the Old Quarter was excellent. It was at our pace, with breaks for a drink and lunch at places that we would not have found on our own. We learned something of the history and culture of Vietnam. An excellent mornings tour with a very friendly guide who spoke very good english.

We were wait listed, but like many others, ended up getting a tour at the requested day and time. Brian and Hoang were friendly, knowledgable guides. I was surprised and impressed to learn that all the volunteer tour guides must sit and pass an exam about Hanoi's history and culture (and, I assume, English speaking ability)before they may join the...

We spent four hours touring the Old Quarter with a couple of very cute, interesting girls from Hanoi Kids - April and Dori. They met us on time in the lobby of our hotel and took us on a walking tour. When doing a personalized tour like this there is a lot of shared communication about their life in Hanoi... More

Our family of four (two adults, a 13 year old and a 10 year old) did two half day tours with Hanoi Kids and we can't say enough good things about the experience and about our wonderful hosts - Zung and Tong our first morning in Hanoi, and Tai and Khiem for another half day tour a few days later....

Book this at least a couple of weeks befor you arrive, preferably earlier. The first thing they will tach you is to cross the road - very important. We loved our tour with Tong and Khiem and they just took us where we wanted to go then suggested some other places. Should have booked them for our first day but... More
