        The best way possible to end our visit to Vietnam
        Just before going back home, 3 of us (me and my wife and my son) took Hoa Lu - Tam Coc - Ninh Binh 1 day Private Tour. It was amazing, even made so by Timmy, with his knowledge and explanation of the history that made everything so much exiting. Being a private tour, he also let us go thru everything in our pace (stop for taking picture, time for coffee after lunch etc) so that the trip finished almost 2 hours after the schedule. He even helped my son explore a lot mini marts to find his favorite candy that no longer available back home.

        Great tour saw a lot in a short time great accommodation, guides and service
        we did the vietnam 11 day tour and added on the mekong river tour, tina was very helpful the accommodation was very good hotels well located, we opted for a private tour cost $350 pp extra but was worth it for the flexibility and own driver and guide, thoroughly recommend this company.

        Great value, even better guide!
        Timmy provided me with an amazing experience. It was a solo tour and he explained so much about Hanoi and Vietnam during the drive. All of his information made. E eager to plan a return trip. He is a great photographer and captured phenomenal shots of me. It was 100% a worthwhile experience!

        great experience half day tour in hanoi
        We had a great experience with Viet Unique Tour, only halfday but it was very impressive, our driver was very enthusiastic and helped us take a lot of beautiful pictures, lunch was simple but very delicious, my family was very happy and thanks our tour guide for giving me truly relaxing moments in Hanoi, we would like to recommend this tour to you who have limit time in Hanoi but would like to see the lives of local people and the countryside outside of Hanoi, truly a memorable experience with great photos.

        Great view!
        Great trip in incense village, short trip but very impressive and so good experience, incense stick village was existing about 100 years. we got so many beautiful pictures. we walked around about 1 hour and know more about daily life of local here, mainly their job is making incense for domestic and exporting but now we saw many tourists coming I guess in near future this village will become attractive places for people want to see suburb of Hanoi and limit time to see nice place in half day tour. Highly recommend :)

        We had a really meaningful and wonderful trip. The tour guide Timmy picked up in the old town and took about 1 hour to go to Qang Phu Cau incense village, a village on the out of Hanoi. We were really impressed about the trip, from start to finish the journey was perfect, the tour guide was very professional and friendly, lunch was a bit late but the food was delicious, the car was extremely clean, and especially we had time very meaningful and valuable half day, thank you Timmy for giving us a wonderful experience!

        Ha Noi City tour with a fantastic guide.
        Timmy was our guide and he was amazing. So knowledgeable, professional and fun to be with. We were never rushed and he would take as much time as necessary for us to fully understand things. We wish he could always be our guide.

        Drinking coffee beside the railway in Hanoi is not what the images portrait.
        We were looking forwards to this experience but it turned into a nightmare. A bunch of local women yell, push and herd you like cattle into the cafes they want you to go. You don't get to choose where you sit. I hope more people who have had similar unpleasant experiences will share their stories on the travel platforms and bring to the attention of the Vietnam Tourism Authority to take action.

        We were well looked after
        Thanks Timmy for a great Sapa Tour (2D1N). Thank you also to Mr. Chung the operator in Sapa who's very helpful and accommodating. Thank you especially to our tour guide Sua the Hmong lady. She's great!!! Lunch served at May Sapa Hotel was simple, it's alright. Service was good. We were well looked after. The guides provided clear explanations on itinerary and what to expect. Organised to get us on the cable car ride at Fansipan Legend (must visit this place when in Sapa). I wish the van can be presented better (cleanliness - interior/exterior) as first impression is important. Also, better English for the drivers would be really helpful. Overall, we really enjoyed our 2-day Hanoi-Sapa-Hanoi trip. I would not hesitate to use this company again.

      We booked a private Hanoi City Tour and Puppet Show on 09 July and then another private tour of Hanoi on 10 July. Thuy Nguyen and her uncle were our tour guide and driver from both days; they were both incredible and we highly recommend them both. They were friendly, knowledgeable about everything/everywhere we went and did in Hanoi, and, most importantly, they didn’t seem to mind being peppered with a thousand questions from 5 American tourists who had never been to Vietnam. And they spoke English very well.

      The van they used to drive us around Hanoi was clean, spacious, and had cold a/c - a must this time of year, at least for me…. Being able to get around in the van allowed us to see much more of the city than we would have otherwise been able to see.

      Due to the time of year, the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum was closed but Twee was able to recommend several other locations we could go instead. This was very helpful.

      After the first day’s tour, there were a few other sites we wanted to see in Hanoi so we booked another tour with Twee and her uncle for the next day. Their knowledge of the city again helped out greatly as they were able to suggest places to go and see that we did not know of.

      As an added benefit, they made suggestions for where we could eat for dinner each night.

      Again, both Twee and her uncle were amazing and I strongly recommend booking them for your time in Hanoi.

      It was a great way to see a number of attractions in Hanoi in one day - our guide Twee was very knowledgeable and helpful, taking good care of everyone on an extremely hot day. She is passionate about providing enjoyable tours of Hanoi having dreamt of being a tour guide since she was a child. Thank you Twee!

      We wanted an efficient overview of Hanoi before starting a 3 week tour of several SE Asia countries. This full day tour was perfect. Our guide, Thuy, was knowledgeable and thorough, and put a lot of energy into explaining details to us, like numerology and the Lunar calendar, as one small example. She set expectations well for timing etc. and made everything easy for our group of 11 people. We felt in very good hands. The price was also a good value, about $30 USD pp, including the water puppet show. The puppets were a delightful end to a productive and informative day. Thank you,Thuy!

      We had a wonderful tour guide, she was informative and friendly. The lunch was just okay. The sites were all Hanoi “must-see’s”, and without a tour guide we would not have understood much of the history or meanings.

      An awesome way to see Hanoi and learn about the culture and history in one day. Our tour guide Timmy was awesome, very knowledgeable, patient and funny. He answered any questions we had, and even detoured to the Hotel during the tour on our request. Lunch was delicious as is all food in Hanoi, and the cooking class was so much fun. Highly recommend for first timers to Hanoi. I would happily do this tour again!
