I had a great tour with friendly and knowledgable tour with volunteer Richard. He explained me very detailled about the historic sites and history in the museum. At the end of the tour we had a cool vietnamnese beer on the sides of the train track.
Love the local vibes!

Ha & Shirley were awesome! We were so lucky to witness a big event going on around St Joseph cathedral, which is a first for all of us. They brought us around Hoàn Kiếm Lake, Ngoc Son temple. It was a beautiful Sunday, the road at French quarter was closed & we can walk freely along the road without stress to admire the lake beauty. Ha & Shirley later brought us to Cafe Dinh & the egg coffee was sooo nice! A cafe full of character and history! The best has to be the street food we came across, Banh My, congee and fruits juice, all fresh and tasty! Love the local vibes! 100% recommended!
Amazing tour from Mary
