Our tour guide was Chris aka Hoang, and our driver was Hoan. They had another small girl assist in the tour. They all worked in synchrony to make the Jeep tour so fun! Great, safe driver. Chris had a lot of interesting information about the history of Hanoi, very well versed. Chris and small girl I forgot her name, both made sure we got a ton of pictures of our tour. I recommend it! We got a full meal at Hidden Gem Cafe and also ice cream and coffee.
