Our family of 4 (my husband & I and our 8 & 9 year old daughters) spent a full day with Miss Anh and Miss Hien. They met us on time at our hotel and we went to the ceramic village via taxi. Both girls were lovely and very interested in us and Australia & they both spoke very good English. Our 8 & 9 yr old daughters were an attraction in Vietnam and as a result our travel mates were told by some local ladies who stopped to look at our daughters to go to see the largest ceramic vase in Vietnam - we ended up in the potter's house drinking tea. He told the girls to take us to see an elderly lady in the village where we spent quite a bit of time drinking tea and watching a dvd about the village which had been a documentary on TV in Vietnam. We felt like family and the lady & her husband even wanted to take photos of us with them. We caught the bus back into town with the locals - quite an experience through road works!
We could never have experienced all of this without the assistance of Hanoi Kids - the girls were very patient and kind and were most appreciative of the gifts we had brought them from Australia (a book about the Great Barrier Reef where we live, and pens, lanyards and bags from our local university). We had a very late lunch at a local restaurant with the girls which was very cheap.
An experience that I would recommend to everyone. The only regret is that we didn't have enough time to do more and spend more time with our travel mates.
