    Highly recommended

      Our guide, Dong, is very knowledgable. He is just a student but he speaks English very well. I am interested in Vietnamese history and culture so I chose Museum Of Ethnology as the 1st destination on my journey to Vietnam. I learned a lot about the local people here. Thank you, Dong and AZ Local Trip!
