My tour guide was JinLong who was amazing! He navigated the city so well and I felt really safe with him as a solo female traveller. He knew lots of facts and I feel like I learned a lot of interesting things about Vietnam. The rest of the tour guides were great too, all very funny and friendly guys. Definitely the best part of my Vietnam trip!

Best tour . Min and .mi were amazing. My fiend Kim was very nervous that I had booked it, but loved it. It seems much less stressful than takin a taxi. Felt totally safe. Only way to go out and about in this amazing city.

I was taken to places I would have never made it on my own, on foot or with car, narrow alleys, local areas outside the ‘books’, exposed to the stories of the city, buildings, people! Thank you!

Belle was an amazing guide. She was friendly, knowledgeable and patient to answer all the questions I had. I can only recommend the tour and especially Belle as a Tourguide.

really great tour, lots to see and fun to be on a motorbike while exploring the city. Our tour guide was really knowledgeable.
