Bat Trang Pottery Village, great tour with fabulous tour guide, Anna

My tour was so nice with Anna - tour guide in Bat Trang ancient - pottery village! So amazing!!! Bat trang is the Ceramic Village in Hanoi which attract me with their own products is made by themselves' hand. This is the most interesting place that people preoccupied with their works. There are a lot of making ceramic places which gave me unforgettable memory that I could make and paint by myself. It's the feeling I am as a ceramic maker. I loved an ancient place which every house and families have many many handicrafts and paintings, which is the most imposing and interesting drawings and products. This is the pride of that villagers who have to do hard works. I've been in ceramic market which really impressed me with the incredible styles, beautiful and colorful ceramics. Highly recommend the tour and Anna!

the guides were very articulate, very fluent in English so that made the tour around the village very understandable. Their service was amazing - especially in terms of their warmth and humour! I really liked how personal the tour was and that the guides made us feel as though we were travelling with familiar friends. The food places they brought us was great too, very glad i could try deserts i haven’t tried before xD Although the tour was a bit pricey, I think it is a pretty good investment for the quality of the service and experience.

Highly recommended

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) had a great time. Sam, Anna, Lara and Hazel were very helpful in explaining to us various aspects of Vietnamese tradition and history in ceremic making as well as some of the sights along the way and at the village. We really had an enjoyable time and lunch was just perfect! Certainly recommend this trip if you have some time to spare.

The guide was brilliant from start to finish. he was informative and helpful but most of all he was entertaining. We had a great time with him, learned a lot but most of all had a brilliant time with him and the local people.

Was a Great Trip! Not many tourists and the guide as well as the driver were so nice!!! Really recommend this trip!
