Very disappointing. We arranged to meet in the office as we were not staying in Hanoi only passing through . Unfortunately the guide did not turn up as they were unable to communicate with us as we were on an overnight train returning from Sapa we did however check several times with the tour operator before leaving the UK that the arrangements were still ok We would have a least appreciated somebody turning up at the office to communicate this to us rather than us trying to find out where they were

we were on a budget and found this free tour, it was great to have some local showing us around. This is a late review as the visit was on feb 2018 and we had lovely Dau as a guide, she showed us around and explained all the traditions for the upcoming TET, brilliant!

We walked around foe Old Quarter for about 3 hours. Our guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. We ended up in an old house that had a wonderful coffee shop. He also gave us recommendations for good local food restaurants.

This tour was Brilliant. Met by a couple of lovely bubbly students at our hotel - Lucy and Sally if I've remembered correctly. We're shown some places we wouldn't have probably found on our own in the limited time we were in Hanoi. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the city. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommend
