Tour: #195627, Shore excursion trip - Hanoi historical city 1 day, Hanoi, Vietnam    view tour
Date: Jan 7/20

My husband and I were seeking a Hanoi tour that was built around the events and history of the Vietnam War, with some of the cultural highlights of the city as well, and Alex did not disappoint. We visited Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the Temple of Literature, the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long ("Kinh Thien") with its hidden underground war bunker built during the Vietnam War. We drove by beautiful Hoan Kiem Lake, and through a huge old quarter market place. How long prison was a highlight too. Alex was great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr & Mrs Blair! Thanks a lot for nice words about me and my services. It's great honour to travel with you to Hanoi. Wish you a Year of Happiness, Healthy and Succession. Best regard! Alex

The care service was also excellent

Alex is a very experienced and professional guide and he speaks very fluent English.

The half day tour to a village outside of Hanoi to look at the making of ceramics and lunch in a 250 year old house was wonderful. It gave us insight into the life of the Vietnamese people.

We highly recommend him as a guide and give him a 5 star rating.

Tour: #195021, Explore Hanoi city on rickshaw, Hanoi, Vietnam    view tour
Date: Oct 21/18

As far as I am concerned this is the best way to see Hanoi. Navigating the roads, paths and traffic in Hanoi is quite an experience, being in the middle of everything but much safer than being on foot. We are a family of four and were in two rickshaws, but at one point we went separate ways, but Alex but us back together.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Andrew! Thanks a lot for nice words about me and my tour in Vietnam. It’s my great honour to be your local guide in Hanoi. I hope to have more chance to see you again in Vietnam. All the best regard! Alex

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Emilia! Thanks a lot for your review and nice words about me. It's my great honour to be your local guide in Hanoi. We did have a great time and Im so glad you enjoyed my services. I hope to have more chance to see you in Hanoi. All the best wishes 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.

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.
