Vietnam Group Day Tours (aka Hanoi Kids) is a fabulous idea. You are guided around Hanoi by two university students, and my guides - Hien and Tuyet - were absolutely delightful.
The schedule for the day is pretty much up to you. There are suggested itineraries, but If you want to see something different, just ask. Walk around the Old Quarter, see some usual tourist sights or catch a taxi to something further out if you like... it's very flexible and the guides are most helpful. I asked if I could find a special Ao Dai dress for my daughter, and the girls went right out of their way to help me find it. Even enlisting their family to help me shop!
What you get is a day with real people, not jaded tour guides. What the guides get is a chance to practice their English with a native English-speaker. This is very important to understand - you get the tour for free, because they value greatly the opportunity to practice speaking English with you, so talk a lot with them!
I think Hanoi Kids is a great idea - what's better than discovering the real Hanoi with two charming young locals. Highly recommended.
