Highlights & Hidden Gems of Barcelona

My three sisters and I met Laura on a brilliant walking tour through Las Rambles, Il Born and the Gothic sections of the city. We communicated for several days before as my sisters all had different interests and needs. She was truly excellent, charming and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her walking tour. We saw and learned so many things we would have never experienced on our own. Thank you so much Laura.

Mari Tuyen

The True Essence of Hanoi: Highlights & Hidden Gems

We booked a private day tour of Hanoi with Tuyen, since we had a 16 hour transit between flights. Got our visas online, had no trouble getting out through immigration. Tuyen was waiting for us at the airport. We caught a bus with him to city. Did a walking tour of the old city, including the markets and a few temples. The tour included a one hour cyclo rickshaw tour, lunch, coffee and a visit to the prison museum. Our three teenage sons loved the rickshaw ride and the visit to the prison. Considering how tired we all were after an all night flight from Europe, the tour was a perfect way to see the highlights of Hanoi in one day, with the flexibility of us being able to say what we wanted to see and do. Tuyen was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to our family's needs. He took us back to the airport in the end. All done as agreed beforehand, and all included in the price quoted. Highly recommended!
