I was there with my parents and we really enjoyed his tour.

It was on our first day in Hanoi. He showed us both local places and famous sightseeing places.

He also negotiated in Vietnamese at night market.

He is really great and nice guide!!!

"A really fantastic tour guide". We booked Mr Daniel Linh a long tour in North Vietnam from Hanoi to remote areas. The tour was wonderful and Daniel deserves all the great reviews. I will undoubtedly recommend our guide, Daniel Linh to friends traveling to Vietnam.He is the real guide we expected to meet in our holiday in Vietnam. Our family was supported by a kind man and always feel that we were taken care with a safe hand everywhere we did travel to...We really enjoyed. Thank you, Daniel.

After a long journey in a strange world it was fantastic to feel to be save. We get a lot of information and "vietnamese secrets". The trip was longer than the 2 hours. He don´t mentioned to get more money. We could feel the passion to present "his" Vietnam. We felt to have a friend beside not a man who works only for money. Thanks Daniel

Tour Guide Comment: I am happy to go with your couple around Vietnam. Thank you so much, Sir. Happy Christmas. Daniel.

5 stars Kamenko B. 25 Apr 2014

I experienced the utmost friendly reception by Daniel. He took me to some unmatched sites in Vietnam. He relieved some insider secrets about his country which no ordinary "tourist" can get. It is his personal history, his personal development, and vast education which made a difference. Learning about Vietnam from that perspective is rare.. Daniel is also humorous, a good photographer and capable of negotiating the best possible tour in the given time which in return appears too short. Thanks!

Tour Guide Comment: Hi Mr Bulic Thank you so much, sir. Hope your family will go back Vietnam next time. All my best wishes to you & your family. Thanks again. Daniel Linh

We had an enjoyable day out from Hanoi to the remote countryside with Daniel. It was a very long day and he took good care of us from the start to the end. He is attentive and capable of managing a trip to less-traveled areas. His interpretation of the nature, culture and life, etc. was indispensable to enhance our experiences. Thanks a lot for your service, Daniel.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for your nice words. I wish to have chance to go Mt Fuji in Japan. Take care & good luck. Daniel.
