    The Hanoi Explorer Photo Tour was the highlight of my four-day trip to Hanoi this September. I took two other tours during my trip and this one was the best!

    Boris was a fantastic tour guide. He pickup me up from my hotel on time, safely drove me through the streets of Hanoi by motorbike and patiently explained camera settings and photography techniques. The scheduled route is full of iconic street scenes. It is hard not to take at least one or two awesome shots. While the tour requires some walking, it is not strenuous, especially if the weather is nice. Toward the end of my tour, Boris gave me the option of ending with a local breakfast or taking a quick juice break instead to allow more time to shoot. I went for the juice break, which was at a café where Boris is a regular, the juice is delicious and the service super friendly.

    Also, Boris keeps you nice company as you explore. He answers small, but important questions like, Can I take pictures of this place or person, or would it be rude or anger someone? He also watches your back, so you can focus on taking shots in the very hectic Hanoi streets.

    I really cannot say enough about this tour. I highly recommend it!
