Totally recommended for those wanna discover Hanoi in an unique way 😍
Me and my friend are recommended to experience this tour and it was completely worth it!! I dont consider myself as a local because Hanoi has many hidden germs i hadnt known tho i’ve been living here for over 20 years. We had chances to get to know more about film photography and took many aesthetic pics in the old quarter. The guides were caring and very helpful, we actually became friends after the trip lol 😂 So if you are bored of common ways to visit a city, this tour would give you an absolutely unique experience 👏👏👏

Amazing Experience with Film & Bus Tour
Jan 2020
I chanced upon their bus tour which I truly enjoyed. It was informative and interesting to see some of the ancient sites and museums along the way. And you can hop on & off for a duration of 24hrs or more, depending on the pass purchased. I've experienced 5 tour ambassadors for the 2 days of hopping on & off, and all of them are extremely pleasant, well-educated, well-trained and passionate about showing and introducing their history and culture throughout the journey. I was so impressed that I joined the film tour after that. It is only one of their many beautiful products available for a good historical experience in Hanoi. Picture taken on film instead of the cellphone turns out so different, with nicer colour & depth to it. And it's so pleasantly & professionally covered on the old quaters route. I just can't praise them enough for the effort the ambassadors has put in, and would highly recommend Bon Bon's lovely tour products to anyone who truly wants to know more of Hanoi, and Vietnam on the whole. Best of luck to their team & looking forward to return someday soon!

Rekindling with Film Photography
This tour is uniquely amazing. I attended it yesterday 20/12/19.
Very fortunate to have Jessica as the guide.
She is friendly, patient, accommodating and generous.
I feel privilege to use her personal camera for the tour.
She was attentive and approachable the whole time.

In depth sharing of history of Hanoi cultural and history, which is important to get the best photographs frame..

Would definitely recommend it.

discovering the hidden gems of Hanoi
Jun 2019 • Solo
Hanoi is over thousand year old city. therefore, there're plenty spots for amazing pictures. That said, film tour offered me a new look of this city. The guide took me to places, i've never seen before. There, i had the best photos i ever probably took. Aside from photo, i got to experience the stories and history of every location. That was an amazing experience.

An amazing film tour experience
May 2019 • Friends
It was an unexpectedly amazing experience for me as a beginner using a film camera.
We had coffee and took film photography simultaneously. After that, we tried different types of egg coffee from the original to the modern, which is a typical drink you cannot miss when you visit Ha Noi and enjoy the story behind that tasty and frothy coffee. Moreover, we also can discover all the little special nooks and crannies with the memories, and history of ancient Ha Noi. Having the chance to use an old film camera to see the beautiful architect and document the stories was an appropriate traditional lens instead of our modern eyes. This tour will change your impression about modern, hectic Ha Noi city life.

A little culture, a little history, a whole lot of insights.
Growing up, I saw my parents used film cameras and it was a pity it became forgotten and labelled 'vintage' as it got replaced with digital cameras. Nonetheless, I signed up with huge anticipation and I was not let down.

I took a short walk to Little Plan Café with my tour guide, Son. I was then introduced to the film camera and how to use it and got some practice at taking some shots of the interior of the café.

After which I was brought around the streets and introduced about the history of how the streets got its name and also tidbits about how people used to live. It was a very light-hearted tour.

What impressed me most was the opportunity to visit the old mansion and current living spaces of 2 homes. They were hidden gems that one would actually simply pass by because the alleys were so unassuming. I got an extended tour by the owner of the homes themselves (was really blessed that the owners were home). I got to see how intricate the architecture was and how each stone and feature in the home was for a purpose.

During the tour, I got to try out some local desserts and coffee.

Son (my tour guide) was a promising young chap who is passionate about learning and sharing about preserving the past of Hanoi. I also got to know a little more about his life on the tour and it was certainly impressive that he is able to manage studies, work and maintain social life.

As the tour ended a little early and I had another schedule much later, he offered to bring me to the place where the photo was developed. Days later, he even went to collect the film roll and made arrangements with me to pass it to me. I'm very grateful for the additional help he has given. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide. Son also takes groups on other of the rewind tours, which are also great so you could find him on one of those tours as well.
