We had one of the best experience in our whole trip to Vietnam. Our guides Ryan and Chris were super friendly and helpful, they even agreed to do this tour on motobikes upon our request (even though it's not supposed to be a motorbike tour, but my wife was pretty tired and didnt want to walk). We had 5 stops at different places around old quarter of Hanoi and tried different types of food from BBQ to chicken soup to ice cream...The guys were were knowlegable and informative, we learned lots of interesting facts about the city and its people. At the end they even agreed to take us for a ride around West Lake (aka Expat district) even though our time was over. Once again - I higly recommend this tour and these guys. Thank you very much!!!!

We were with Jenny the whole evening and really had a lot of fun! We were picked up from the hotel on time and felt very well cared for in the hustle and bustle of the city. The small hidden corners were definitely worth a visit, the food was just great and also suitable for the European taste. We had a really nice chat and had a very nice and funny evening with very tasty food!

Beyond amazing

Jenny our guide was extraordinary and gave us a great experience of wholesome Vietnamese food. I especially liked one of the places as literally went through a hole in the wall and some of the places I would of never gone too if Jenny hadn't taken us there. I have an allergy to mushrooms and made sure I had food without them even when some dishes had them I had alternatives meals. Can not fault this tour at all. The amazing thing was we booked it at 10am and on same day we were doing the tour at 2pm, so organised and very fast and efficient booking process as well. Highly recommend.
