Sammy is an excellent guide. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed her walking tour of the Old and French Quarters of Hanoi very much. She shared information about the city's history and culture. She took us to temples, pagodas, markets and other sites. She also recommended restaurants; helped us get photos made for our Cambodia visas; and helped us locate an ATM with cash. It was not easy to get the photos made, or to access a working cash machine, because it was during Tet.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sylvia Kochler and husband, I am so touched to get such glowing review. It was my great pleasure to welcome you during our Tet holiday. It was a beautiful day for me as well. I am so happy that I can help you somehow in my home city. I sincerely trust you were having a wonderful holiday with group in Vietnam. Hopefully one day I do have precious chance to welcome you back for more adventure. I sincerely wish you all the best & lots of love, Sammy

Sammy (Dang) made Hanoi one of our best excursions. Sammy is bright, informative, humorous and kind. The tour was planned with skill and Sammy was always attentive to details even taking us on a walk through a "dark street". Lunch was superb in the old quarter. In summary, excellent tour, excellent guide. I would strongly recommend Sammy and ToursByLocals.

Dang H (Sammy) met us (8 in our group) at the pier gate after a miscommunication of where to meet. She was a very pleasant and friendly young lady and spoke fluent English. The van was a 12-seated van with AC and comfortable. She took us to various places in town according to our wishes before going to a private boat for a fantastic seafood lunch cruise in Halong Bay. She was very helpful in every way. We had an enjoyable excursion despite the cloudy and light rain that day. Highly recommended.

That's why I am always ready before the starting time to support customers if needed. It was a wonderful day to me to welcome you in Vietnam and take you to best places in Halong bay, one of seven natural wonders in the world. I sincerely wish your return to Vietnam for longer trip and I can welcome you heartily again. With my sincere, Sammy
