Duc was an excellent tour guide with a breadth of knowledge on the history of vietnam and Hanoi. We saw some spots which we would never have found on traditional tours such as the ‘Eiffel tower’ and enjoyed dinner at the hidden gem restaurant.

We had a great guide (Tam). The food was delicious. We discovered great places that we would never have found without Tam. It was a great tour!

Superb tour . Knowledgeable guide . Insightful highlights. Great food . Value for money .
