Tonight we were escorted by our lovely guide Sophie to a number of local restaurants in the old quarter to taste some new flavours. Sophie determined what we had previously experienced and selected a number of dishes that were new for us. Sophie was helpful, polite and very informative. We very much enjoyed our evening and would like to thank Sophie and recommend this tour to others.

Little Tea helped with organizing the food tour. She set me up with a guide and we went and ate our way through the Old Quarter! Little Tea is very responsive and delightful to speak with.

Our guide, Tam, was so incredibly engaging, smart, funny and well informed. He gave us access to the best street foods, but more, he helped us negotiate prices from vendors, took us to the wholesale marketplace and educated us about Communist history and influence, including insights about Chinese dominance, French-Vietnamese history and the feeling towards Americans after the Vietnam war. He was so open, culturally insightful and wise, and just a lot of fun to spend time with. While the tour says free, tipping is expected. Hotel told me $20-30 US is appropriate.

Tam (pronounced Tom) stayed with us for four hours although the reservation was just for 2-3 hours. I do not recommend this for people with small children or for those with disabilities...you must be able to cross cobbled, congested streets without traffic lights, sidewalks, or any other form of safety, and to enter massive traffic and not hesitate. Scary but he is a protective guide and taught us how to survive these streets. He was truly an A+ experience! Thank you, Tam!

Thaan our guide was a lovely and accomodating young lady. It was her first English speaking tour. She is still learning English and communication was somewhat difficult. It probably would have been best
to have sent her with another guide first to learn the route and itinerary. All in all we did very much enjoy the tour.

Dear Twilight, Thank you for reaching out about your experience with us. From our heart, we really want to serve tourists as well as possible but your tour was not good as your expectation because of limited source. We are so sorry about that. About your guide, i must to say that our guides are students, not professional guide. We always sent student guide for free tour because It is our mission. Both tourists and students have benefits from that, we can exchange culture, make friends, and learn more,.... Students will be tested before joining the club and have to be trained before take any tour. Thank you so much for your opinion. We have been doing what you said. But at that time, there are so much booking ( more than 20 bookings/day ), and not enough tour guide. So although she have not taken the tour before, we still give this chance for her. I hope that you can sympathy. Surely, you were very disappointed. We can’t fix the past but you have my personal commitment to improve the way our staff serves every customer. Until then, please accept my sincerest apologies on behalf of everyone on the team. We are improving and training our guide better, certainly need more time to do that but not immediately and hope that our service will be much more better. When you come back Vietnam, please give me a chance to arrange a free tour for you, I make sure that you will see the differences from the past. Once again, thank you so much! Warm regards, Hanoi Free Local Tour Team
