I was welcomed to Hanoi, the morning after arriving in this wonderful City, by Thuy who is a university student studying English. Thuy’s command of the English language was excellent and we took a walking Tour for a few hours to some of the main attractions of Hanoi. Her in-depth knowledge was impressive and opened my eyes to a lot of the history of Vietnam. I was particularly absorbed by the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Museum. Thuy took me to a very historical Café for an egg coffee, which I highly recommend. Thank you so much Thuy for your wonderful welcome to your great city.
I had beautiful time with Ngoc! She was very friendly and she brought to some of the popular spots in Hanoi. She first brought me to Kem Tràng Tiền where I’ve tasted one of the best coconut ice creams in Hanoi! She also brought me to Cafe Đinh to try Vietnam’s famous egg coffee. We strolled around Hoàn Kiếm Lake and Ngoc accompanied me to buy souvenirs and helped me with bargaining. 🙂 We capped off the night by drinking Nước Mía (sugarcane juice). Even in a short period of time together, Ngoc showed me how beautiful Hanoi is even at night.
My friend and I did 2 tours with Hanoi eBuddies. Both of the tours were great!
First, we did the streetfoodtour. We met 2 lovely students Huyen and Linh at our hostel. Then we went to the old quarter where we ended up in a lot of street food restaurants. Nice places and a lot of great food!!! It was so nice to do the tour with these students, their English was really good and they were so friendly! We loved this tour and we would really recommend it! The next day, we met 2 other students, Tung and Thuy, they were also very friendly and they told us a lot about the mausoleum and the temples of literature!!! It was a wonderfull day, and in the end we had lunch in the old quarter. We would really recommend these tours because you get to know the local people, you have the chance to talk to students, and they all know a lot about Hanoi and their English is really good!!! A must do when you are in Hanoi.
My husband , daughter and myself were so lucky to have Phuong Thao give us a wonderful day and tour around Hanoi . We honestly couldn’t ask for more . This day we will never forget Thao was so kind friendly informative and just a pleasure to show us around such a fascinating place. Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts Thao we hope we meet again one day we highly recommend anyone thinking of booking a tour with this company as it was the highlight of our time in Hanoi .
