Capsule It Up Contest FR2014
Writer: Le Minh Trang - Group 1
“Empathy is not something that can be taught or forced on to a person. It is something that comes from the heart, and you delivered it to me.” Those were the words from my guest of my second trial tour, Mr. Liam (Billy) Fitzpatrick, who further on wrote in my ‘tour diary’ stating that I was a ‘super-guide!!’, before we parted ways.

Tour with Congressional Delegation from U.S. House of Representatives

On Jun 3 and 4, 2014, Hanoikids had the honor to arrange tours for CODEL (Congressional Delegation) from U.S. House of Representatives to visit Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts and Hoa Lo Prison ("Hanoi Hilton").
During the tour, Hanoikids members in charge provided members of U.S. Congress with the general information about these popular tourist attractions in Hanoi and answer their questions in Vietnamese tradition and culture reflected in each exhibit. Besides, our members helped the delegation understand more about Vietnam youth through their sharing about students' life and expectation.

Trial tour – First lesson of listening and sharing

S’s second trial tour with Buddy Duc- unforgettable memories :)
My Buddy called it his "most special tour" and to me, it couldn’t be more fantastic!
Samuel and Ferly were so kind and friendly. They are a gay couple. Yeah, this should be not at all normal to many people. But if they have a chance to meet and talk with Sam and Ferly, it is possible that they will change their mind. Maybe the way that the outsiders usually see LGBT people is just like the way I felt about Ferly.

We were supposed to start our tour at 11 am that day, but due to the heavy and persistent rain, we decided to phone our guests and ask if they want to delay it until later. I mentioned the rain, but Mrs.

19/06/13 | An inspiring day with Harvard students

"Haiti used to be a French colony also, so there are lots of similarities.” Today’s the end of my end-term exams, so all the reason more to grasp a tour and have fun. I didn’t really put it in mind that I’d be accompanying 2 awesome Harvard students.
Then I just realized Miss Ha Anh on the spot. If you wanna have a definition for a Dream Girl, then she would be it: she’s not only intelligent, but also really outgoing and pretty and adorable. Her dad picked us up and drove us all the way to Bat Trang.

It was a marvellous tour on the way to become a kid. Receiving email 2 days before the tour, I knew that the guests this time would be nice like the way they wrote - so carefully and politely. But they were even more awesome than I thought.
This was the first time I had been to a pretty hotel like that, it was small enough for me to feel warm but also luxurious enough to admire. Wating for both buddy and guests, my heart was dancing and just wanted to jump out of the chest.
