The owners and their staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Did the Halong bay tour with them and that was excellent value for money with a charming English speaking guide. They booked my ticket to Sa Pa and quite literally put me on the train....More

STOKED! My partner and I arrived to Hanoi with no plans, and fortunately stumbled upon the KC. Being budget conscious is why these guys initially appealed to us, and I'm still in disbelief as to how much we did and saw and travelled and ate...More

It’s hard to know where to start with this one. Replying to subjective posts is difficult but it’s made almost impossible they carefully keep the most important parts of their “stories” hidden. People who read this aren’t stupid & they’ll, like us wonder why you...More

Since 1994, The REAL Kangaroo Cafe (TM) has been providing great food, drinks & reasonably priced tours for singles, couples, families & small groups. At the Real Kangaroo Cafe (TM) we serve Vietnamese, Vegetarian & Western food & all at local prices. Our famous Hamburgers, Mugs (not eye baths) of Tea & Coffee (with real milk too) & the coldest beer in Viet Nam have always proven to be popular with our guests. We come in for some grief here on TA sometimes but you'll notice that it's always from a new breed of tourist, the ones with no cameras. It's a recent phenomena called astroturfing & we wish there was a lot more done to get rid of these fake posters. The best way to tell a fake post is that they're recently joined, post no pics or videos & almost no real info. You'll find our Mob here at the cafe to be fun, helpful & decent too & we really do look forward to meeting you in Ha Noi.
