Good tour. Son kindly agreed to give the tour on the eve of Chinese New Year. Some places already closed up for the New Year celebrations, but Son found other alternatives so we could still enjoy the experience.
Very well time managed.

An interesting tour with things included we would not have seen on our own. The raising of the flag and ceremony at Ho Chin Min mausoleum was great. The markets were enlightening as well. A well worth while trip, not too long. Our guide was very engaging and knew his stuff. Overall really enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol Blythe, I would like to thank you so much for using my services and it is great to know that you enjoyed the trip with me. I wish you had best Pho and Egg coffee in the town and will enjoy my recommendation list for best things to try in Hanoi by yourself. I hope to see you again and enjoy the trip ahead. Kind regards, Son Vu
Very nice guide with lots of knowledge on history and culture. Took me to places I've never discover by myself. I felt very welcome by Son. Great food places.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ido Laron, I would like to thank you so much for using my services and my pleasure to meet you. I wish you will have a great journey ahead and a memorable trip. I hope we will meet up again soon for your returning and keep in touch ! Kind regards, Son Vu

Son was great. This was my last day in Vietnam and was a great way to end my vacation. Son was knowledgeable and spoke good English. He made me feel safe and comfortable and made sure I had everything I needed. I have problems with stairs and getting on and off the boat, but he was always there to help, he was patience with me and made it all a very special day. I highly recommend using Son. I would definitely use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stanley Phillips, I thank you so much for your lovely words that you spent for me and thanks for using my services as local tour guide in Hanoi. I appreciate very much. It is very pleasant to be your guide in Hanoi capital and Ha Long bay and great to know that you were enjoyed the trip. Thank you and see you again for sure, take care! Kind regards, Son Vu

Carlos AponteUnited States
I just have a full day tour with Son Vu and i can describe how incredible, profesional and knowledgeable he is. First of all he was on time which it is very important, second he was able to manage the time very good so I can cover as much historic places in a day. His English is perfect so it made it easy to communicate. I highly recommend Son as a tour guide. Thank you Son for making my stay in Hanoi a very enjoyable one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carlos Aponte, I would like to thank you very much for taking tours from TBL and much more great to know that you had fantastic time during Hanoi city tour with me today. I hope to have chances to become a part of your trip again in the near future. Stay connected Carlos Aponte !!!
Fitting everything into a day is always going to be busy - but I never felt rushed and was given enough time to look at the things that interested me. Son was able to provide great insight into Hanoi and we really enjoyed ourselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan Reid, I would like to sincere thanks for your great review on TBL. I am so happy to get your 5☆ review and it also encourages me to provide an excellent services to the tourists in the future. I hope to seeing you again soon & showing you more beautiful parts of VN. We do keep in touch. Best wishes, Son
Judy FlynnUnited States
Son was very good as well all support people We had a lovely day but next time would request to skip stops at places Such as pottery and pearl processing and sales.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Judy Flynn, I am so touched to hear from you and thank you so much for your glowing review to my services. I am so happy to be a little ambassador of my home city, which is one of the seven wonder in the world - Ha Long bay. Certainly we will meet again if the travel brings you back Vietnam and I am honored to welcome you heartily and show you the best of Vietnam. Stopping in the places on the way from Hanoi to Ha Long bay and back is well noted with thanks. I wish you all the best and lots of love.
Ronald CrawfordUnited States
Of all the ToursByLocals I took on this trip this was by far the best, our guide Son bent over backwards to please, inform and make us comfortable the whole trip; he is a credit to ToursByLocals and to his country, Vietnam. I gave him a big tip for all his efforts but it probably wasn't enough. Son should be promoted by ToursByLocals as the most highly recommended guide in Hanoi.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ronald Crawford, Thank you so much for your best words to me. It was my great pleasure for being your guide for you two during this short day trip in Vietnam. I wish we can have more time together, so I can show you more of my city. I hope it is a reason for your coming back to visit my city again in the future. I wish you and your family all the best of the luck and see you again. Take care! Kind regards, Son Vu
