​If you have the chance to do this tour, do it

My girlfriend and I did the French Quarter tour with Steve and it was fantastic. Steve was super nice, motivated and extremely knowledgeable. His English was moreover really good, so it was a pleasure to listen to his stories about Hanoi. We saw the most important sites of the French Quarter, checked out some great local food and had plenty of time to ask questions. Being with a local is undoubtedly the best way to discover and truly understand a foreign place. So if you want to see the French Quarter in Hanoi, I would always recommend to go with Steve. We would go again anytime!

​Highly interesting and authentic food tour

Sarah was a fantastic tour guide. She showed us some delicious food spots, explaining the history behind the dishes and locations at each stop. Some of the spots were really hidden away - down side alleys that I would never have thought to go down without a guide! Sarah also showed us some of the main sightseeing locations in Hanoi and shared insights into Vietnamese life and history. Overall, a great introduction into Hanoi and some insane food! Thank you Sarah :)
