We booked a morning tour of the Old Quarter about 2 weeks before we left Australia. We thought we were booking a tour with Hanoi Kids as it was their website that directed me to Vietnam Group Day Tours. Our guide, Tung was a little late arriving, due to having spent the weekend with his family some 3-4 hours drive north of Hanoi. He had left their place at 4.00am so that he could make his appointment with us, but he was caught in peak hour traffic. He was not involved with Hanoi Kids but he still provided a free walking tour of his city. He was a very pleasant young man and made a huge effort to show us around the Old Quarter. He was knowledgeable and friendly and we spent a very pleasant morning with him. He not only answered questions about the local area but gave us a broad perspective on life in Vietnam in general. He was interested in our lifestyle and communicated well with our 20yr old daughter who is also studying at University. He walked us around the Old Quarter, showing us landmarks and suggesting shops that we may wish to revisit. He also suggested several restaurants in Hanoi where we could try authentic Vietnamese cuisine. All in all, a good experience and would recommend to anyone wanting an orientation of Hanoi.
