@Rafael: “My friend and I booked a motorcycle tour for the last day before leaving Hanoi. Surprisingly, the ladies in the long dress are charming with a smile on their lips. They speak English very well. They are happy to answer whatever we ask. We had Vietnamese coffee, ate delicious food and enjoyed the view of Hanoi city. However, the most amazing thing is the feeling of being crossed by a crowded lanes with a beautiful Vietnamese girl. I will never forget this feeling.”

@LucyG: “This full-day tour in Hanoi was the best way to discover the city ! Linh my guide was very nice, funny and so knowledgeable, she told me a lot about history and culture of Vietnam while exploring HoChiMin Sanctuary, the prison and the West lake, it was so interesting! We tried some delicious street food and coffee and she give me a lot of tips for the rest of my travel, she was perfect. And the team is very reactive and flexible, I had an schedule problem and they answer very fast by mail, it was perfect! Thanks you every one :)”

@TinaL: “After a few very pleasant email exchanges with Kristen from the booking office, we decided to take the street food evening tour. Not the canned version but customised with food items that we want to try. The purchase was hassle free and simple.

Trang appeared at our hotel lobby 10 minutes earlier than our agreed 5.30pm. After a quick discussion on what we want to eat, off we went.

Bun Dao mam tom, banxeo, taophoa, bun oc, bun ca, bun rieu cua were some of the yummy dishes that we had. Not the usual tourist spots but little holes in the wall where locals frequent.

Back to our guide, Trang. Kristen at the booking office was not lying when she said that Trang is a lovely girl with amazing knowledge of food. Throughout the whole evening, Trang captivated us with her pleasant and bubbly personality. She gave us very interesting commentaries on route to each eating spot and when the food came, she taught us how to assemble or fully appreciate the dish better.

We were very well fed and stuffed to the brim when the evening came to an end. Instead of being walked back to the hotel, we had Trang walk us to the night market and we parted ways there. Not before she took pains to point out the direction towards our hotel and graciously presented us with a box of Vietnamese coffee.

The tour was not free, but well worth the price we paid. Thank you Kristen and Trang for the positive experiences. We had a great time.
