Our guide was punctual and funny! We had a great time exploring Ho Chi Minh’s house and connecting with a local student. I was skeptical of a free tour but would highly recommend this experience!

Amazed of the tour service this group offers at no cost. Nguyen and Bach our guides, brought us around the Old Quarters, made us try authentic food and immersed us in the Hanoi culture. They explained very well the country's history and monument. Highly recommended!
