    "When we decided our travel to Hanoi, I started to find a local travel agency who can organize for as both our planned trips, and the airport transfers. I chose Funny Travel, and was expected their answers for my first e-mail.. that came soon, and we started to discuss the details, the fees. I had got many-many question, but they could answer for all. Their drivers always was in time at the airport or at the Hotel (4 airport transfers were arranged). All the trips were not just well organized, but more that I ever could imagine! Excellent ones! :) We enjoyed them! Mr. Tuk (our tour guide) and Mr. Joe (leader of Funny Travel) are really amazing! I was, and I am so happy to choose them! The only thing I can say is: if somebody plans traveling to Hanoi, and wants good, safety, friendly, tasty (street food), funny, guided trips there, choose Funny Travel! Dear Joe, Tuk... thanks for everything :)"

    "Vicky and Joe were absolutely lovely. They were amazingly helpful and very friendly. We spent a long time just chatting like old friends! We organised a street food tour of Hanoi which was terrific (definitely try the egg coffee!) and then went on a one night Ha Long bay tour with them which was delightful and they made everything so easy! But more than that they were friendly helpful with anything we needed and just happy to spend some time talking and were genuinely interested in our trip. I would highly recommend them to anyone travelling through Hanoi or anywhere in Vietnam. Thanks so much, Vicky and Joe!"

  • Review by a traveler from London, United Kingdom

    "My family and I booked several tours with Joe from Funny Travel. He was very helpful and friendly from the outset. Everything was straightforward and everyone were professional and friendly. We booked a day tour to Ninh Binh and Tam Coc followed by a Hanoi food tour that evening. Our guide was Thanh who was great. We did a bit of cycling and had a lovely boat trip along the river in Tam Coc. We also booked an overnight trip to Ha Long Bay. Unfortunately, the weather prevented the ship from undockin but we were impressed by the professional nature in which the tour guide and Joe conducted themselves. They kept us updated and gave us alternative options. We eventually got a refund for the trip with no problems. As we were very impressed with the above, we also ended up booking tour to the gorgeous My Son (Hoi An) via Joe. The guide, Tai, was very enthusiastic and friendly. All in all we highly recommend Joe and Funny Travel Team. You will be guaranteed a great personalized service and a memorable time in Vietnam!"

    "For our first day in Hanoi, we decided to do the motorbike and street food tour. We had a fantastic day seeing the best sights of Hanoi along with a few local treats. We ended the day by walking around old district tasting the most delicious Vietnamese food and ended having beers at a local bar. Our guide, Thanh, was amazing and really made sure we had an unforgettable day."

    "We booked a full-day motorbike tour with Funny Travel. Joe understood exactly how we wanted to spend our day and set us up with two guides. One of the first surprises along the way was a chance to watch men and women raking and drying rice and our guides made friends with the workers who let us try our hand at turning over the rice so that it dries evenly. We stopped at three pagodas and a home stay for a delicious meal. During the meal, one of our guides gave us a great history lesson of Vietnam complete with maps and pictures. It was a nice surprise that left us with a better appreciation of the history of Vietnam. In addition to the main meal, the guides stopped from time to time to introduce us to local food including sugarcane juice. We made our way back to Funny Travel but the day wasn't over yet. Vicky bought us all a cold beer which was just what we needed after a long but fantastic day. Our guides were friendly, funny, and informative. The next day, we reconnected with one of our guides, Toan, to enjoy another local treat, which was the coconut coffee. Conveniently located on Gia Ngu Street, I would highly recommend Funny Travel for all of your Vietnam tour needs. I will definitely book with them again."

    "We used Funny Travel to book a motor bike and food tour around Hanoi. The food was great and excellent guides took us around the city and explained the history of Vietnam during our tour. We also booked a group bus tour to Tam Coc, which was absolutely a fantastic day out. It was an excellent trip and great value for money. Jo and Vicky from Funny Travel were very helpful with excellent English. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to travelers. "

  • Review by Garry Sheppard from Australia

    "We looked at organized tours in Australia before we left but they were full and quite expensive. My wife has chronic pain so we needed to allow lots of rest days and have a workable itinerary. We came across with Funny Travel Vietnam by accident and Vicky arranged our excursion and Joe put together a great package for the rest of our holiday. He arranged an itinerary that suited our needs beautifully by taking into account our need for rest days and our love of train travel incorporating all the best locations in the country. We stayed at three-star hotels and these were all very comfortable. We recommend Funny Travel Vietnam based in Hanoi since they are highly professional, understanding, informative, and very friendly."

  • Review by Marko from Russia

    "We found Funny Travel on TripAdvisor and booked a one-day trip to Halong Bay with them. We were greeted with a friendly smile and a refreshing drink. Joe recommended us a couple of day trips and organized us a few flights and accommodations for coming days. The program was tempting and the price was very good so we didn't think for a long time and decided to go for it. After we left Hanoi, Joe checked every day whether everything is going according to the plan, and asked us if we were satisfied with our tours and tour guides and if the service was good. We will definitely recommend Funny Travel to all our friends and acquaintances that are planning to visit Vietnam. And without a doubt, when we come to Hanoi next time, we will visit Joe and Vicky, people who made our Vietnamese trip even more awesome. Thank you guys! People like you are the best possible promotion of your great country."

  • Review by Nathan L. from England, UK

    "We were in Hanoi for 5 nights and during our stay, Funny Travel (Joe) arranged all of our tours and shuttles for us. Joe was wonderful to deal with. He responded quickly to my many, many e-mails and was very patient and helpful to ensure that we chose the right tours. His recommendation for our Halong Bay cruise was perfect and such an amazing way to end our Vietnam adventure. Joe even met us at the airport with the shuttle driver to welcome us to Hanoi. If your travelling to Vietnam we would highly recommend booking your tour/s with Funny Travel. They were great."

    "We used Funny Travel to book a motor bike / food tour around Hanoi on the back of a motor bike. We enjoyed the chance to experience being on a motor bake in the streets of Hanoi. A tour not to be missed; the food was great and excellent guides took us around the city and explained the history of Vietnam during our tour. We also booked a group bus tour to Tam Coc - absolutely fantastic day out. The guide was great, we visited a very old temple, rode push bikes around the rice paddy's, and went up the river in row boats. Excellent trip and great value for money. Joe and Vicky from Funny Travel were very helpful with excellent English. They also helped us sort a local SIM card and got laundry done same day service. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to travelers, they can be found in the Old Quater next to the Tirant Hotel. "

  • Review by Laura from Australia

    "What a great trip! Vicky at Funny Travel was very welcoming and helped us plan a customized tour to our liking to Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island, and our return back to Hanoi, including hotels in Hanoi and Cat Ba Island. She planned all our travel logistics perfectly and we couldn't be happier about our vacation. She cared about our budget constants and our preferences, and gave us a memorable trip at a low cost but, with high value. She gave great recommendations for hotels and sights in and around Hanoi and Cat Ba Island, and always made sure we were happy about our choices. Great customer service all around. We will absolutely plan our next trip to Vietnam with Vicky at Funny Travel. Thank you for everything!"
