Tour: #218607, Half day explore Van Giang village with cooking class, Hanoi, Vietnam    view tour
Date: Nov 20/18

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. Alex (Duc) as a tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and proud of his city, Hanoi. He informed us about Vietnam culture, history and people and answered our many questions. We highly recommend him as a guide and give him a 5 star rating.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr and Mrs Manger! Thanks again for using my services in Vietnam. It was wonderful time to have tour with you. Im so glad to be your local guide and you did enjoy my service. I hope you will have pleasant holiday in our country. All the best. Alex

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.

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

I've used TBL a lot over the last 3 years, this is the first guide that I'm giving a low rating to. Tour was a 12 hour day from Halong Bay port to Hanoi (3 1/2 hour drive each way). First thing Alex said was he wasn't planning to accompany us back to the ship from Hanoi, we requested that he do that, as we hired a guide for the full day. He seemed to have a script and wasn't interested in engaging in conversation. Very aloof. Driver was overly aggressive and had poor driving skills. Car old & dirty.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Wendy! Thanks for giving out your idea and help me to improve my services. There is a bit misunderstood between us. You asked me about my house so I just said if your don't mind, you can leave me at Hanoi, but upon your decision. I didn't plan for this idea. I thinks I had given all explaination about our country, people and culture. I didn't know that you expected more than this. Sorry about that. However, thank you again to give me a chance organize a tour and explain about our country

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals are committed to quality customer experiences and take all feedback seriously. We have taken this feedback on board and will work with Alex to improve these aspects, and the overall tour experience, going forward.

Alex was a very devoted tour guide. Our day in Halong Bay was lots of fun but I was there 8 years ago when it was relatively unspoiled. It is very crowded now and is getting overbuilt and has lost some of it's magical feel. That of course is certainly not Alexs' fault. The boat Alex had reserved for us was very nice and included a wonderful lunch on board. One of our 4 person party took a fall in Hanoi and Alex was called and came to assist us immediately. His attention and kindness were appreciated.

We were very pleased by our day tour with Alex. Setting up the itinerary and schedule before our departure was very easy. He met us at the airport at 7:30 AM (he arranged for a car and driver), drove us to the hotel, helped us with check in and waited for us to freshen up before taking us on our city tour. We saw quite a lot and enjoyed listening to all his stories. He took care of every little detail and made sure that our expectations were met.

Alex is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of Hanoi live - the history, the culture, the food, essentially everything. You can tell that he loves what he does, and enjoys sharing his city. Alex took us to some awesome places I am sure we would not have discovered on our own. It is without hesitation that we recommend Alex as a tour guide for Hanoi.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for all of nice words about me and my tour. It so glad that you and your family had a enjoyed day in Hanoi. All the best wishes for the NEW YEAR and hope to see you again in Vietnam. Best regard! Alex

Alex is an excellent guide very professional! He provided us a good car and driver! We did a day tour to Ninh Binh, but I suggest spend one night in Ninh Binh and have more time to have a calm lunch and more hours to visit very nice places nearby as Hoa Lu and Tom ca caves.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for all of nice words about me and the trip. I'm very glad that you did have enjoyed day in Ninh binh. Our country always welcome back any time. Wish you a new year with all Healthy, Succession and Happiness. Alex

Alex, Is a truly professional,who surpasses every expectation and goes to any length,to ensure,that you are absorbed,by the culture,and obviously takes great pride,in ensuring ,you understand,the tour. Our party enjoyed every minute,including the little personal extras that Alex provided.Hanoi,was a hard long day,but we would not have missed a second of it. The second day Alex,provided,a private boat and seafood lunch,while we sailed Halong bay. A complete contrast and just sooooo relaxing Well done Alex
