Junie put together a great three day package for our time in Hanoi, and my family and I could not have been more pleased. She speaks English very well and is just a really wonderful person - great fun to be with. Took us to some amazing local eateries we would never otherwise have tried and recommended a day trip to see the mountain pagoda, rivers and caves in Ninh Binh which was a highlight of our Vietnam trip. Can't recommend Junie highly enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John, Thanks for your sharing, I am happy that you enjoyed the tour with me. Good luck for your family! Your friend, Junie

We were very satisfied with Junie as our guide and we can highly reccomend her.

picked us up from the airport, were waiting happily and on time. The driver (her fiancé) has a nice Toyota, clean newer model. We did a custom tour (airport to mua caves, tour around area next day and transfer to ha long bay the next. The tour guiding its self was very lack luster, and did not accommodate all requests. We could have done what we did with private driver for 1/3 cost. She brought her fiancé on a boat tour which was fine, he sat behind us and talked on cell the entire time :(. English 5/10

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mitchell, Thanks for your feedback! I am so sorry to hear that you aren't happy with my tour. I did explain for you that we couldn't have enough time to see the tailor as we meet each other nearly 3 pm, and I am happy to take you to the tailor after Ha Long bay as I mentioned Wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New year, Junie

Fantastic walking tour to give us the experience to try lots of difference Vietnamese dishes that we wouldn't otherwise have know about. We could ask lots of questions about how the food was prepared, the ingredients and how the flavors infused with each other. We also got recommendations for other places to try that we went back to on our own on another evening. Street food in Vietnam is so much more tasty and flavorful than restaurant food, not to mention the atmosphere. Just wonderful!

We booked a street food tour last minute and Junie was available. She met us right on time at the hotel and off we went to eat. She took our preferences etc into account and took us to some great spots where we could sample some of Hanoi's typical street food. All was amazing. Junie also took the time to explain things to us so we could get a feel of the culture and food. We learned alot from Junie and I would HIGHLY recommend her. She is friendly and spoke perfect English. Excellent stuff!

Our second all day trip with Junie in 3 days. Once again she was sensational and we have nothing but praise and a strong recommendation for her as an English speaking tour guide for day trips from Hanoi. The temple, boat trip and bike ride were great, buffet lunch was nothing flash but fresh with plenty to eat. For the less mobile this would be a better trip than Perfume Pergoda, both days were great but we preferred Perfume Pergoda. Both days the car was clean and drivers very competent.

We could not have wished for a better tour guide. From the time Junie greeted us at the hotel with a big happy smile until the finish of the trip, she was a delight to be with. Informative, helpful, considerate, she had our best interests at heart and the day was perfect. Apparently this tour is not that popular with western tourists - it should be as the boat ride, cable car and cave temple are well worth the effort. However maybe not suitable for the less mobile. Thanks Junie for a ripper day.

This was a really fun tour, and my friends and I had a very good time. We loved Junie, she was so sweet and informative. I had 2 concerns when I booked. First, I wasn't sure if there'd be enough food to fill us up for lunch. There was more than plenty to eat on the tour, and all the food was wonderful. Secondly, the info on Junie states that she has advanced English knowledge. This should be changed to fluent, since she was able to converse without any problems. Overall great tour!

Junie is an absolutely delightful and terrific guide. We did the street food tour one day and the city tour the next day. I would recommend her absolutely without hesitation. Hanoi is a difficult city to negotiate. Although we are veteran travellors,, we would not have managed it without her. Simply crossing the road here is a stressful venture, and she was superb in guiding us through the maze of motorbikes and cars. She is a lovely person, speaks English fluently and is excellent at communication.

Wow can thoroughly recommend on all levels, the long journey from Ha Long Bay was so worth it! Junie was fun/kind/informative with excellent English, a highlight RECOMMENDED. The 3 hour boat ride was breathtaking, the boat seated x4 + it wasn't busy when we visit. We traversed limestone karsts & network of caves c.250m in length, ducking low in many places as our rower guided us through. The Scenery is unspoilt and you really feel at one with nature, there are two points to hop off & visit the temples.

Tried some things I've never had before like little freshwater eels. Went to a coffee shop with a view that I would never have found. And I learned quite a bit about the culture and perspectives from a native that I would never have gotten from a friend from the states.

As an American citizen traveling abroad, the danger of being kidnapped for extortion is real. Maybe that's arrogant, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Towards the end of the tour, the guide lead me into a dark (no light), narrow alley. There were no witnesses around, and I did not feel safe. My worst thought was that I would be ambushed. I immediately had a loss of confidence with the guide and abruptly ended the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I told you before we visited the old quarter with "tube house".The dark and narrow road is typical Hanoian architecture and there was no danger. I took you through a shortcut, which I also explained to you and mentioned as "Secret road", an area only known by tour guides and local people. All of my tourists are interested in that kind of experience. Besides, I also turned on the light of my phone for you. I am sorry if you did not feel safe.I hope you had a nice trip in Ho Chi Minh city Best regard, Junie

The caves are worth seeing however it is a long day as you spend 6 hours on the road and only 4 hours in the Bay if you're coming from Hanoi. This is mainlly a sightseeing tour with not much else to do on the river.

We never met Junie Vva as he is apparently part of a travel agency. We were met by "Stefan" (part of the same agency) who introduced us to Ngo Xuan Hieu, our actual guide. Hieu turned out to be a wonderful guide who did a good job showing us Hanoi, but had no information about us or about the described itinerary. Although the tour was good, it was not what we expected from "ToursByLocals.com".

Tour: #4160, Trekking Sapa, shopping in local market, Sa Pa, Vietnam    view tour
Date: Dec 2/10

Junie's local knowledge of Sapa and its surroundings was very insightful. She is truly a 'local' guide. The insights of the different cultures of some of the ethnic minorities were very interesting. The various 'trekking' of villages amongst the paddy fields were quite an experience. She was very helpful and took good care of us during the entire visit in Sapa. We spent a really good time in Sapa thanks to her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am happy that you and your family enjoyed the time in Sapa. Wishing you and Mrs. Loong and your angels always have wonderful trips like the holiday in Vietnam :)

Junie is a pleasant and friendly guide. It would be better if she had a clearer pronounciation in English.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to tell me about your experience with my tours. I appreciate your sharing your concerns, and hopefully that you will give me the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Junie

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Junie does have an accent, but her fluency is good. We've asked her to post a movie so that you can judge for yourself.

Junie was an excellent tour guide and made our time in Hanoi really special. We had asked her to bring us to some of the best places for street food and she did not disappoint. She was very informative about the city history and even extended the tour into the evening with no extra charge so that we could see some more amazing sights (and eat some more!) If you visit Hanoi you will get so much more by going on her tours than you would looking yourself. It was the hightlight of our great trip. 10 stars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shay and Brian, Thank for your email and expected pictures from Brian.And I am happy that you did enjoy the tour too :) we keep in touch...

Junie is a very nice and kind young lady. Nevertheless we were disappointed by the way she conducted the tour. The choice of sites did not please us. Although we signaled that the HCM-museum was not a favourite we still went in. Also the comments were often not clear. Her English vocabulary and pronunciation is weak. She could know more about the history; many questions remained unanswered. The intent and nice appearance did not compensate for the lost fun and money. good soup in old town - thanks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Henke, Thank you for taking the time to tell me about your experience. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. On the day we went for tour, we visit around Ho Chi Minh's sites and I asked you and you said “O.K., we come in” so we did go inside. It might be my misunderstood about your signal and your words. I appreciate your sharing your concerns, and hopefully that you will give me the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Junie

We loved Junie's tours and her. She was always prompt and was able to make changes to the itinerary when we asked. The boat rides through the caves were our favorite.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great time with your family in Vietnam. All my best wishes to your family Carol, Liza and Dave...

You could not ask for a better guide the Junie!! She has an enthusiasm and a passion for her country that is absolutely contagious. She arranged a spectacular Halong Bay cruise for me and also gave me a tour of Hanoi. Not only did we visit all the amazing sights of the city, she also made sure I tried all the great food that Hanoi has to offer. This was a foodie's dream come true!! Having Junie as your guide is like visiting a friend who lives in Vietnam. Really wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Peter. 'a visitor - when in Rome, do as Romans do' ^-^ and I was so happy to see you enjoyed a really street food too and took the 'Ao Dai' with your trip back. See you again in next year!!
