Rosa es una gran guía, lleva poco tiempo estudiando español pero se explica perfectamente, nos hizo un tour de más de 3h por el centro de la ciudad visitando lugares importantes y haciendo recomendaciones sobre lugares donde comer o comprar. Fue muy agradable, acabamos probando café con huevo, café típico de Hanoi. Repetiríamos el tour sin duda

Emma was such a fun and knowledgeable guide. She walked us through the city exploring the art, history, temples, markets, the train station and ended our day by giving us food suggestions. I have a better understanding of Vietnam’s history because of her. Thank you! 🙏
