Best Ever Bicycle Tour of Hanoi

My family and I had a peasant day with Julie waking around Hanoi visiting places we probably wouldn't have visited if we had been on our own. We opted out of renting bikes as we didnt find Hanoi bike-friendly AT ALL. But everything is witin walking distance so walking is just as fine and much less terrifying. Only thing to improve is to include discounts for multiple people. City waking with 4 people is not much harder than waking with 1 person. I am sure a lot of families and groups would be more willing to use the service if the group discount was in place

Awesome Street Food Tour in Hanoi

Wij gingen op streetfood tour met Alex en deze avond had net Vietnam gewonnen met voetbal. Een en al gekte op straat. Alex heeft ons locale specialiteiten laten proeven en ons veel verteld over de cultuur. Alex spreekt goed engels en is een slimme vent. Wij kunnen deze tour echt aanraden.

Dank je wel Alex.

Hartelijke groet,

Jacqueline en Ron

Farm tour & Cooking in Hanoi with local family

From the moment Manh met us with her beautiful, sweet smile we were captivated by her. Her English was so clear. Her village is as it has been for years and years, untouched by outside influences. We were in fact a few of the first outside visitors. The residents were as curious about us as were about them as we walked through their daily market. The market was surrounded by the locals farmland which we walked through and Manh explained the crop rotation and which plants gathered more money wholesale to the city of Hanoi.
She had shopped prior at 6:30 am, so when we arrived to her home we began chopping and stir frying with her. We had a feast and everything was delicious. We highly recommend for all the adventurous foodies.
