Quality Verified Registered on August 29, 2022

Hello! We are young enthusiasts who love to travel, experience different cultures, taste different cuisines and meet many friends from all over the world. Although we come from many different regions of Vietnam, we all love the capital of Hanoi which has more than 1000 years of history. The name of our club Hanoitismiss, founded by 4 colleagues who can speak Spanish and English, contains many special meanings. Hanoitismiss, with "tis" in the Spanish word "free" means that you will experience a "free" walking tour to explore all the historical places, culture and people. On the other hand, the "miss", an English word, is related to that you will have an unforgettable trip with us and will remember Hanoi forever. When pronouncing the name Hanoitismiss in Vietnamese, it sounds like "Hanoi Tít Mít", translated as traveling and immersing yourself in the journey until you forget the way back home. Our professional and experienced guides will provide you with a meaningful, fun and complete trip. Join us now.
