“Very professional and dedicated guides.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We had an interesting day with 2 of our guides who brought us around the old quarters of Hanoi. They brought us to an authentic coffee house to try egg nog viet coffee as well as figure a good place to buy coffee powder. Not only were they dedicated, they were helpful in sharing their knowledge with us. They were adamant not to receive single cent from us. Definitely recommend anyone visiting Hanoi to engage Hanoi Kids for their tour services.

“Best day in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Booking a Day with Hanoi kids was the best thing I did. My two teenage daughters and I had a great day walking around Hanoi and finding out about the sights and the lifestyles of the locals. We really enjoyed just talking to the students and finding out about life in Vietnam and answering their questions about Australia. Cong and Duyen were great hosts and we defiantly recommend anyone traveling to Hanoi to book a day with Hanoi Kids. The tour was free you just pay for any transportation costs, entrance fees and food for both you and the students, which really isn't much, the day was worth a lot more. If you take them a gift from your country they do appreciate it, as they won't except tips. We booked a month or more ahead just to make sure and the correspondence was great.

“Simply the best!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

HanoiKids Tour : How the kids amazing!! they returned quickly a real experience for us, this is non-profit group, they just walk around the Lake & around to help foreigners & some people who need help.They even don't need our Tips but we gave them some local hats those we bought in Sapa. everything you could give some question like:
+ How to move?- Move slowly but quickly if a vehicle come next to you.
+ Where to buy?- Could showed some interest shops, Hang Bong, Hang Gai
+ Where to eat?- Hang Bac, Ma My, Cam Try
+ Halong Bay Trip: A Class Opera Cruise, Halong Violet Cruise, Paradise Cruise
+ Hanoi Trip: SIng cafe
Hotel: many & many
The kids: sort out of their efforts to help us & other travelers. I would defenitely recommend "these teenager kids"...

“Great Way to Start”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Our guide was a lovely young girl who spent the day helping us find our feet in this busy city. Such a good way to begin in a new town, being shown the ropes by someone who lives there. Her English was miles better than our Vietnamese too!

Highly recommended.

“Short notice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We were lucky to book the Hanoi Kids at short notice and get Nougat the Vice Present as our guide.To start with her English was near perfect,she always seemed to have a smile and was willing to help us with anything.The Tour included a trip to The Temple of Literature,The"Hilton Hotel" prison,and to the Old Quarter to find a silver shop and egg coffee.Even though it was a hot day we enjoyed her company and were sad to say goodbye.If you come to Hanoi its a must to book a tour with the Hanoi Kids and if your lucky you will get Nougat.
