Tourists are having beautiful memories in Hanoi

Travelled to the Old House, which displayed the ancient architecture of the Vietnamese house. Then moved to a local shopping mall, where you can literally find anything. On the evening, wandered around Hoan Kiem Lake, Temple of the Jade Mountain and St. Joseph’s Cathedral.

Overall the tour was really informative and full of insights. Whats more interesting was how both of my guides were interactive and made sure that I got all the information regarding those places.

They were university students and engaging in volunteering work to help tourists understand the history of Hanoi and its landmarks. Appreciate their selfless act and devoting their valuable time to others so that tourists can understand more about the historic significance.

I would recommend HFLT to all the people out there, I bet you will definitely enjoy. Great work guys enjoy.

Minh and Hanan-the two students who took us to a tour in Hanoi made a difference about what we think about Vietnam in generally. We fill that the days we spent in Hanoi before were a waist of time.

They took us to real special hidden places and some local special food and quarters.
we find them very amusing , very interesting , educating, very polite, very nice and very communicated.
We had the best time, truly! We recommend with all our hurts having free tour with students in Hanoi.

Thank you
