We are a free tour operator providing the best free tour experience in Hanoi. Our tour guides are trained and experienced students, they are humorous, friendly and always try to do the best things for our guests, they love what they are doing and would love to show you around Hanoi city! As travel companions, volunteers are non-profit members helping tourists to explore Hanoi, and giving them the chance to experience the natural local life. We want you to understand Vietnam through the eye of locals, avoiding some risks such as getting overcharged. While our goal is to provide you information, and that you gain insights into Vietnamese people, culture, customs and lifestyle, which greatly contribute to the development of Vietnamese tourism; we also look that our guides actively explore and preserve the values of Vietnam, improve their English and professional skills by having the opportunity to experience multicultural environments in Hanoi, thus creating great training opportunities for them before working in an international workplace. Each tour occurs in a full day or a half day, visiting attractions such as Temper of Literature, Hanoi Old Quarter, Bát Tràng pottery village, Vạn Phúc silk village and so on.

Great tour. My guide Đạt was awesome. Not only he told me a lot about the places, but we also exchanged thoughts on life in our countries. The residence of Ho Shi Min and the Temple of Literature are very beautiful and peaceful places, must visit. Thank you!

Really great tour, I loved that it was really casual, like hanging out with a friend. Sarah (Yen) was really nice and we talked about a lot of different things not only about Hanoi history but about they're way of living. Thanks so much!
