Hanoi Kids/Hanoi Free Local Tours (21 Replies)
I tried booking on the Hanoi Kids site, not sure if I made an error; got a response from Hanoi Free Local Tours. They expect $9. per person at the end of the tour, not a lot, just wanted to make sure it is the Hanoi Kids, as the guide. Advise please

"...got a response from Hanoi Free Local Tours. They expect $9. per person at the end of the tour..." This is the thing that really annoys me about that particular 'business'. Have no problem with the payment, but their name is misleading. I would avoid them until they change their name. Use Tofu's link. Scott

Hanoi Kids walking tour (3 Replies)
Hi. I think I've made enquiries to do a walking tour with Hanoi Kids and have received an email confirming our arrangements which asks for a payment if $6 per person donation. Now I have absolutely no issue making this payment - as long as I am making arrangements with the genuine Hanoi Kids. The email comes from Hanoi Free Local Tours. Am I booking with the wrong group? Cheers nzers

Hi! From what I understand, there is NO fee or donation involved when you go with HanoiKids. I went with them in 2016 and the only things you have to pay for on the tour are any entrance fees, food, drinks, or transportation costs incurred during the tour (for everyone, including the members of HanoiKids). The email address that I was in contact with previously is hanoikidsvn@gmail.com. If not they have a form to fill out on their website as well. Hope this helps!
