Emilia Grodzka-McDowellUnited Kingdom
Alex is an excellent guide. His English is very good. He was flexible at what museums we wanted to see. We decided to choose the Military History Museum over the Ethnology Musuem that we did not regret. He took us for lunch to a charity cafe and helped us to choose dishes. The spring rolls served there were very delicious! I only wished we could see the Imperial Citadel rather than going to the place that sells paintings. This should be communicated well in advance. Overall, I highly recommend Alex.

I had a 2 days Private Tour with Alex. As our time in Hanoi was short- its was great to have Alex plan our holiday .He speaks Eng well and planned a great itinerary , took us for wonderful meals including a visit to the oldest coffee shop for a cup of lovely egg coffee. The second day had cycling through the village and a sampan ride which was fun. Also gave us good recommendations for places for meals and shopping. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again next time I come to Hanoi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Suzette! Thanks again for choosing me in Hanoi and nice review about me. It's alway my great honour to become your local guide. Im really happy that you did enjoy my tour. Hope to have more chance travel with you in Vietnam. Wish you all the best! Alex

We did a tour with Alex in June 18. He tailored the tour to our requirements and we had a terrific day. He arranged a vehicle and driver for the tour as well as taking us to a restaurant for a delicious lunch. It was extremely hot (41 degrees) so we ended the day with a cold drink together. We requested this at the last minute and Alex was happy to oblige �� Alex is very knowledgeable and communication is easy as Alex speaks excellent English. We recommend Alex for your tour.

Harry H.United States
Alex spoke good English, and was personable, knowledgeable, and pleasant. He took us to all of the places on our agreed itinerary. The car was nice. For lunch, he took us to a restaurant, ordered our meal, and left; the bill was $18 for two, which seemed high for Hanoi. Later he took us to a place that was selling paintings. I wonder if he was getting a commission from these two places. At the "Hanoi Hilton," he explained how humanely and well the American POW's had been treated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Harry! Thanks again for using my services in Vietnam and gave me a good review. I think it's misunderstood for lunch and the humanity centre that I introduced. For lunch cost 9 USD/person is very normal in Hanoi, because the living cost here is high. As I intruduced about the disable children and our goverment humanity policy, I just wanted to show how the goverment helping the disable kids, no commission for this. However, Im very glad that you did enjoy my tour in Hanoi. Best regard Alex

Thankyou Alex for a wonderful day. Margaret & I enjoyed your company and the knowledge and information you shared with us on our tour of Hanoi. The sights and scenes were enhanced by your descriptions of the history and culture that we were fortunate to experience with you. Also thanks to the driver you supplied, there was never any waiting around and the pickup operation was like a well oiled machine, which was good for Margaret owing to the fact she had just recently recovered from a knee operation

Alex customised a tour for us, a group of six aged from six to 77. We visited all the places on our wish list within flexible time frames to accommodate all interests. Alex is a knowledgeable guide who relates well to people. He was professional and accommodating. We were especially impressed with the way he chatted to a six year old - he was a hit with us all. We will definitely contact Alex if we return to Hanoi and recommend him to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mrs Jan. Im so glad that your family did enjoyed my country. Thanks again for nice words about me. I do hope to see you and your family in the future. Wish you all the best and HAPPY NEW YEAR. Alex
