This is a tour diary report that we want tourists to have a further view towards how a particular free tour is conducted.
Dang and I came to the Cathedral 15 minutes more early than negotiated time of the free tour. Since Dang and I had to pick up outside, it was quite difficult for us to recognize the guests. The only clue we had was the picture from the email. We looked around, around and around in vain. Our heads spined around, around, and around in the crowd. We came to the hotel where our guests booked, but there were no results at all. We could not find them, so Dang had called Miss. Diem who operated the free tour for help, but there was nothing happened. Luckily, I get the eyes of a detective; I saw a group of people quite fit in the photo. I told Dang, and I was right. They were our guests. Finally, we could start out tour at 10:06.
During the free tour
In the beginning of the free tour, we walked around the Old Quater. Because the guests love street food, and shopping, we visited many stores. Then, we walked around the lake. We told them the legendary story about the lake. We continued walking to the French Quater and kept visiting food stores like egg coffee store. We had lunch at Ly Quoc Su street. It was the best meal ever. The old man also gave me a toothpick from Malaysia. I asked him if it was second-hand or not (for joking LOL). After that, we walked to the Temple of Literature. We introduced some information about the Temple of literature. Yan Yan really loved the dresses which the college graduates wore. Because we had a meeting with our club, so we had to end our tour at 4.40 pm.
We called grab taxi for them. We gave hugs to each other and said goodbye. They said that: “If you come to Malaysia, just call us, we will guide you, thank you so much.”
They are a cute family. They gave me Malaysian money (2 coins, and one ringgit). After this tour, I and Dang have a new sister (pinkie). She gave us Chinese dried beef as a gift too. I wanted to bring them to the meeting to share, but I was late, so I put them in glasses to hang on my walls.
