My husband and I chose the 5:30pm - 8:30pm option. The night before they kindly advised us due to festivities of Tet, they recommended an earlier time due to many things closing at 5pm. It was a great tip bc it would have been a bummer to go and things were closed.
Tam (Nick) was our guide. He was really nice, kind and always had a smile. I really admire his passion for his country. I learned a lot about Ha Noi and it’s history. He was on time and really took his time. We never felt rushed. His English was well spoken. The value of this tour is that you get to learn the history behind what you were looking at and it was personalized! We could have done the same walking tour on our own but we would not have known any of the information Tam (Nick) shared. This was the first thing we did when we got to HaNoi. I really recommend this. Plus it’s a great way to give back by letting college kids practice their English! Thanks again Tam! We really appreciate your hospitality.
