A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent tour and guide! Anh customized the tour for a few places we wanted to visit. He was quite knowledgeable about Vietnam, Hanoi, and its history. It was a very interesting and informative tour. And the place he took us for lunch was amazing! Thank you, Anh for a great day!
