Hai/Dennis was an excellent tour guide. He was flexible enough to meet our individual needs, and he was articulate and knowledgeable about the history and culture of central Vietnam. He was also personable and kind. We greatly enjoyed our day in Da Nang and Hoi An with Dennis.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my Lady for giving me a good choice to guiding you in the beautiful country of Vietnam. May I wish you a good and enjoyable life and journey. I am looking forward to meeting you again and meeting your friends and relatives with your recommendation to make bookings with Toursbylocals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Anne, Thank you so much for your kind support and 5 star review for me. I am looking forward to meeting you again anywhere and anytime. May I wish you and your family a Happy New Year please.
We had an excellent time in Danang,HoiAn with Dennis as our local guide. He took good care of us ( go of 13) and when the extra mile to ensure we fully enjoy the trip. Dennis speak and communicate well and effectively in English. His general knowledge in places we visit is great. He plan the itinerary well and execute them to perfection. I would recommend him and the tourby locals to my friends.

Tour was completely tailored to our requirements and Dennis (and our driver) were great and really looked after us. We had a fabulous day in Da Nang, visiting Marble Mountain, Military Museum, Lady Buddha and a delicious (and exceptionally cheap) local lunch at a street cafe. We were taken back to our cruise ship in good time. Would highly recommend Dennis.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much and I am certainly improving my skills and knowlege to bring a sweet moment touring with my local acitivities.

Although Hoi An is an amazing place, we were underwhelmed by the tour led by Dennis (Hai). It is advertised as an "8-hour" tour, but was actually under 6 hours (and he was a bit late meeting us). Maybe he was bored, but we felt that he was knowledgeable but not enthusiastic about what he was doing. We also wished that he discussed what sites he planned to take us to in Hoi An, as 2 (or 3?) of the 5 stops seemed to be stops for selling souvenirs (albeit good souvenirs). Maybe we have high expectations?

Very responsive to our questions and good knowledge of the area.
We had a nice experience exploring Hoi An. Dennis was kind and helpful, he recommended a very good restaurant along the riverside for lunch and we had coffee after at a rooftop coffee shop. Thank you Dennis!

Dennis is very reliable and friendly and was able to give us some very interesting history about Bana hills, marble mountain and Hoi An. I would certainly recommend him to friends and family.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Denis is a cheerful and knowledgable person who provided us with a great day. His timing was perfect. Cycling all day (at our request) he urged us to stop when the temperature became very high and took us on a boat trip which was refreshing. Afterwards, when the temperature dropped we continued to visit the country side through truly delightful backlanes where no other tourist where to be seen and that in Hoi An.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, thank you so much Lily and Brundt. You are both looking younger than me (in some cases). You made me happy with my job and brought me lots of knowledge of culture, life and skin,... Also, thank you for your great idea, thoughts and wish. I will try my best to work and build my little home to the second floor. Look forward to meeting you again in Vietnam, even I know that you have been to Vietnam many times. Kind regards, Dennis

We were staying at Intercontinental an hour away so Dennis arranged a car to collect us. Had an informative drive through Danang. Walked through the old town, had Vietnamese pancakes for lunch and a boat trip up the river for about 3/4hr which was very relaxing. Dennis showed us to a good tailor on request before lunch and 3 hours later had a fitting. Most were ready! Ordered a couple more things which we picked up the next evening while seeing the lantern festival. Beautiful place if touristy.

Hoi An is a more relaxed, laid back place, rich in culture and our tour guide Hai matched the style of the place perfectly. He was relaxed, and flexible - adding to the conversation appropriately and taking us to a few places beyond the normal tourist path. We had a wonderful day with Hai in Hoi An.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jason. I am looking forward to welcoming you back Vietnam.
