“Best way to experience Hanoi!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We took many tours with this group, and every single one was amazing. The tour guides were very knowledgable, eager to show us the city, answer our questions, learn about us, and show us something new. All of the guides were great, and we were so thankful we booked through HFTG!

“Awesome time with Quang!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

I had an awesome time exploring Hanoi with my tour guide (and new friend) Quang! My boyfriend was sick and couldn't go out sightseeing, but I had a great day anyway! Quang took me to the Women's Museum and the Temple of Literature. Despite the heat, we had a great time getting to know each other and laughing. It was so wonderful to spend time with a Hanoi local and get to really know him. I loved my tour with Hanoi Free Tour Guides. Thank you, Quang!

“High recommended tour with HFTG”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Booked a tour with HFTG on 2 June for a full day tour for my family and I, and we had a wonderful time! Tour guide was really knowledgeable and friendly. Gave us lots of insights into the history of Hanoi, as well as their culture and everyday life.

Highly recommended!

“Fun, laughter-filled Hanoi cultural tour!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

My friend and I booked for Hanoi Free Tour Guides from bangkok, thailand. and the confirmation emails came very fast. We had two guides for the day, Van Anh and Mick, two lovely Vietnamese girls who we warmed up to very fast. They were both very friendly, active, chatty and fun to talk to. We were lucky we had them take us around with such fun vibes for the day. Both their english were fairly good, good enough to understand the historical backgrounds they gave us in different sites we visited. Going with them on taxis definitely made us safe from taxi scams :) Mick was so chatty she pretty much entertained all the cab drivers for the day too LOL. Van Anh was very patient in explaining different things about Hanoi. Both girls took us out for a tasty local lunch in the French quarter, and ended the day by treating us to Hanoi's classic "Ice Tea" in Hanoi's original Ice Tea shop in old quarter. We tried to offer to give them some tip for their time, but they would not accept. So thank you so much Van Anh and Mick for the best time in Hanoi! Anyone looking to try out this free tour guide, do request for Van Anh and Mick as a team. You'll have lotsa fun!

“Fantastic Service”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

What a great experience we enjoyed with our guide Ms. July. Her English was very good & the local knowledge she brought to the tour was especially interesting & helpful. We caught taxis to the attractions we visited and she took us to the back street markets for a look at the non-tourist areas. She was cheerful & a pleasure to be with and we had to insist on her taking a donation at the end of our tour. Couldn't recommend this service more highly!
