GUESTS’ REVIEW

So, for the real tales, twists and turns of the trip with Hanoikids, look no further than the comments extracted from our previous travellers’s reviews on Tripadvisor.

I was a bit reluctant at first when my friends suggested that we roped in the HanoiKids as our tour guide, preferring to explore on our on to avoid the hassle and time restraints of having to follow a tour schedule. But I was wrong. The HanoiKids tour are innovative and informative, fun, very flexible and a great way to interact and compare cultures especially if you are coming from another country in the South East Asia. The young guides that we got, Mim and Trang speaks fluent English and are both credits to their society.
If you wish to book their tour, i would advice that you book early as their tour guides are quite popular (did i mention that it’s free?).. :) Also i was advice that tourists should book from their official website http://hanoikids.org/ to avoid being conned by fake tour agency that used their popularity to sell their own tours.

When we prebooked our tour, giving a list of things we would like to do, we were not entirely sure what to expect. But it was absolutely fabulous. We had Ha and Tien and they were just wonderful. Were at our hotel on time, their knowledge excellent and the whole tour went smoothly and was very enjoyable. It was not just about the sights, loved the egg coffee. Wonderful organisation, we have another half day tour booked on our return to Hanoi and are very much looking forward to repeating the experience. Just a note be sure you get the correct the website as there are apparently some fake ones around.

I have no idea why this kind of organization hasn’t sprung up all over the world – perhaps it has but I’ve not come across it before! For us, a group of four, the day we spent with our two ambassadors was a highlight of our trip. As a teacher of English I am used to talking to students on a daily basis and perhaps that made the whole experience more comfortable for me, but my husband and friends were equally charmed by our guides. They were knowledgeable and fun to be with. Their English was good and they were extremely helpful. The best part was asking them to find us a good restaurant and order us the food they thought we should taste. We ended up sharing facebook details and becoming firm friends.

At first we were not sure if this was our type of thing so were not too disappointed whe reply said they were booked out. A last minute vacancy however allowed us to experience a unique and very pleasant morning. First morning in Hanoi after a late night arrival we had a taste of pho,fresh beer,learnt the art of crossing the road as well as visiting some interesting Hanoi landmarks all with the help of a couple of friendly locals, Sunny and Mama (Hanoi kiids nicknames) whospoke great english. Will definitely do again if we come back to Hanoi.

  1. Good day to all of you in ‘HANOI KIDS’….my family and i would like to express our appreciation to your esteem organisation especially to miss Hao and miss Olivia who were our tour guides on our first day in Hanoi…we are very thankful to them who brought us around n were very informative about the places we visited…kudos and congrats to your Hanoi Kids organisation….keep it up. Will definetely spread the word around in regards to your wonderful organisation. Will also definetely enlist your members when we have a chance to visit Hanoi again.

  2. Our Hanoi Kids tour was fantastic! My husband and I were met at our hotel by our two guides. They were friendly and very knowledgeable, but for us the best part was having a chance to really engage with Vietnamese university students. They shared their interests, ideas and opinions on all sorts of topics so we had a fun cultural interchange in addition to a great tour. If you are an English speaker coming to Hanoi, you should definitely book a tour with Hanoi Kids!

  3. Hi there!

    My group would like to say a BIG “Thank you” to Trung & Tung for taking the time to bring us around for a half day tour. Both of them were very helpful. We had much fun sharing information and jokes with them. Special thanks to Trung who had spent the day with us although he had to study for his exams after the tour. The seafood that Tung recommended was great too! Thank you so much!!! :)

    • Hello Irene!

      First of all, thank you very much for trusting Hanoikids to accompany you in your trip in Hanoi. And we are very glad to know that you and your friends did enjoy the time with Hanoikids members, we are sure our two guys had a wonderful time together too! We would deliver your thank-you to the two guys and they will be flattered haha.

      Hope this is one of the things making you never forget Vietnam and Hanoi. All the best for you!

      Regards
      Hanoikids.

  4. Hi Hanoikids,
    Thank you so much for accommodating my last minute request and having Bach to take us on half day tour, despite him having an exam the next day! We had an interesting afternoon with Bach who took us to the Temple of Literature and to the Old Quarters for some local coffee and dessert. He spoke very good English, and we enjoyed learning more about the local culture of Hanoi. I would highly recommend Hanoikids to anyone visting Hanoi, who really want to experience the ‘real’ Hanoi.
    Thank you Bach and Hanoikids!

  5. My boyfriend and parents booked a tour with Hanoi Kids after seeing their tour was number one on trip advisor and reading the excellent reviews. It was fabulous. Our guides Hoa and Mai were so easy to talk to and wonderful to listen to. We had already visited a lot of the ‘touristy’ sights in the City so instead we visited a local wet market, a beautiful local temple and popped in to a lovely little coffee shop (which we never would have found on our own!) for an egg coffee- delicious!! We also visited the old house in the old quarter. The girls were very informative in a fun way, and happy to answer all of our questions (they were also great at hearding us clumsy Brits across the insanely busy roads!). Thank you so much Hanoi Kids- great job! We hope to keep in touch with Mai and Hoa and repay the favour if they ever travel to England!
