Our tour with Chi Linh Nguyen and Lan Mi, two local students was absolutely fantastic. They both spoke very good English and were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and history of Hanoi. They also helped us out with local tips i.e. where to shop and how to bargain and also things like crossing the road safely. It was a joy to spend the day with young students looking to improve their English conversing skills. Especially as it was free, although I would have paid for the quality of the tour they gave us!

Overall a 10/10 experience.

I took a free local tour with this student run group to learn more about the history of the city and the cultural heritage of Vietnamese people.

I spent around 7 hours with Chi who arrived early to pick me up from where I was staying. I immediately felt welcomed and enlivened by her high energy, enthusiasm, and openness. I was impressed by her knowledge of the prominent landmarks such as the Temple of Literature, Sword Lake, Hoa Lo Prison, and more. Thanks to her expertise, I was able to ask her questions to inform my decisions on the sites I wanted to visit for the tour. Her vocabulary in English is extensive so she was able to provide accurate descriptions of different historic or cultural aspects of each sit and answered complex questions.

The tour can be highly customized since the agenda is controlled by both you and the guide, and whoever else may be on the tour with you. I highly recommend this tour and would like to thank Chi very much for providing me such a wonderful experience in Hanoi.

Our guide ThuTrang was excellent.
The half day trip to Bat Trang and later a walking tour of the Old Quarter was a success mostly due to her energy and friendly character. The kids enjoyed the pottery making at Bat Trang.
The walk in the Old Quarter was made more interesting with the information she provided about the place.

An excellent way to see and learn about Hanoi.
Very highly recommended.
